We had a snow storm the day before. I remember the phone ringing off the hood at our house. Both Officer Walt Busko and my dad riding on the back of a trash truck after being called into "work." I was eleven years old. Fussy was my dad's partner before deciding to head the new K-9 Corps. It is hard to think that this amount of time has past.
