Shooter's Comments:

It was interesting seeing this. The students seem to really love the dog and give the dog more attention then Officer Neher.

I took a variety of photos from the dog sniffing lockers to just hanging out in the hall. He seems like a really happy dog and likes being there to help out Officer Neher. Yes, the dog stays with Officer Neher at home as well, the two are a family.
