It’s time to say farewell to Brix, a police service dog with the Ontario Police Department. Not that you probably ever said hello to him, unless you were one of the 1,398 suspects he helped collar in his nine-year career.
The German Shepherd has retired from the force at age 11, or “70-something” in dog years, as Mayor Paul Leon put it when Brix was honored at Tuesday’s council meeting.
Tuesday’s meeting was not the final one for Jason Anderson, the councilman. He anticipates the Dec. 2 meeting will be his last.
Well, it’s good to space these farewells out.
