Heroes on Display

I got lucky on a library visit again today. Evidently young library patrons have been reading about the heroes who respond to emergencies. Today they were given a chance to meet police, firemen, state park rangers, soldiers, and others who help keep the public safe. Emergency vehicles were parked all along 11th Street.

Today I will show you the ones used by the K-9 units. Since this dog is dark, you might want to click the photo to get a better look. Do the same with any photo here to enlarge it.

I actually cropped the photo above from a larger photo that shows the vehicle, as well as the ranger and the dog. This is the uncropped version.










The Paso Robles Police also brought a K-9 unit. Here are two different views of the Paso Robles Police Department K-9 car.

The Paso Robles K-9 Unit was there when I arrived. The state park ranger unit arrived while I was photographing the Paso Robles K-9 dog. That's when  things began to get lively.


When the state park ranger unloaded his dog, there was only one vehicle separating the two dogs, and the dogs did not like each other. It was all the men could do to restrain the dogs from charging at each other, but they succeeded.


I will be showing you some of the rest of the vehicles and displays in the next couple of days.
