Man Dies Trying To Save His Dog

A Christchurch man who leapt into rough seas to save his dog drowned last night, despite desperate efforts by friends to save him.

Police K9 officers have to be counseled concerning what to do if their dog dies in the line of duty. There have been cases where the K9 officer’s dog had been killed by a criminal, and the officer is so angry that he wants to then kill the criminal.

You just can’t go there.

I remember several cases where dogs have fallen off cliffs, and the owners died, too, trying to climb down to save their dogs. This case is no different.

Though I love dogs, they aren’t humans. You just can’t do this kind of thing.
