Sgt Murphy didn’t get the job … Bummer!

Copyrighted Sgt MurphyIn January I wrote about the city of Delaware approving the expenses to “hire” a new K-9 cop. The Murph was hoping to apply for the job.

Well, the new K-9 cop is on duty. He’s a 15-month old German shepherd, named Argo.

Per a recent ThisWeek News article it was reported that Argo is still learning the ropes in following his commands consistently. For instance, Lee Yoakum, community affairs coordinator, volunteered to be the “bad guy” in a public demonstration. It seems Argo didn’t immediately “release” the bad guy on the first command. Oh Whoops!

Several local groups have donated money for Argo’s care, but the donation that I thought was the best was from the Masonic Lodge which provided the funds for body armor. Since the bad guys might be more afraid of the dog than the cop, they might be more likely to try to shoot the dog. So, I’m glad to see that Argo will be protected.

While The Murph is really disappointed that he wasn’t considered for the job, I’m sure he’ll get over it. After all, he already has a full-time job protecting our home and the WEENR mobile.

However, he STILL thinks he has a better name for a cop. How many cops do you know named ARGO!

The Gov’t is still searching Sgt Murphy

In January I wrote a post about the City of Delaware (Ohio) obtaining a new member to their K-9 unit. At the end of the article I mentioned that The Murph thought he could qualify for this job. It was written in fun, AND it mentioned Sgt Murphy.

Well, with the stat counters I have installed to track visitors’ traffic, I can monitor the search terms people used prior to visiting my sites. Sometimes I can see the name of the corporation for the people who visit. It has been so-o-o funny to see who is searching for “Sgt Murphy”. One of those has been the FBI in Washington, DC. Yesterday it was the Dept of Homeland Security.

Now, I’ve no idea who the REAL Sgt Murphy is, but I’ll bet those folks are surprised when they land on a page showing him as a little wiener dog.

Sargent Murphy is ready to take on the bad guys!

Copyrighted Sgt MurphyThe Jan. 28 This Week Community Newspaper reported that the city of Delaware is going to re-establish a canine unit. The city has been without such a crime-fighting unit for ten years. Instead, they’ve relied on assistance from the county Sheriff‘s canine unit.

The dog and the handler will work on illegal drug searches and assist with other police work. March is the expected date when the dog will be selected, then it will spend some time with the policeman to make sure the two are compatible. If all goes well, then there will be six weeks of training. So, come May, the bad guys had better watch out. There will be a new K-9 cop on duty!

Naturally, when tough-guy Murph heard about this addition to the police force, he asked if he could volunteer. He’s already the neighborhood guard dog along with the Yorkie that lives nearby. He watched a local news program that mentioned a little Jack Russell that is very good at drug sniffing. So he feels that if a hyper (boing! – boing!) Jack Russell can be a volunteer then there might be a place for a tenacious wiener as well. He noted that he can run very, very fast, can bark REALLY loud, and can tear a mean hole in the perps socks!

Plus, he’s got a GREAT name for a ‘man’ in blue!
