I will always remember when my daughter was 11 years old and Callahan provided her with a moment of laughter and amusement, there is a good natured aspect to K-9's that people should be aware of. I must say of Callahan and his handler, I them knew them both very well, they were both fine examples of the great traditions and high standards of the SPPD.
