Kind gesture warms heart of bereft West Valley pet owner

Locals praise an act of kindness, offer condolences

Posted

Just now behind the Fry’s at Litchfield and Waddell, a police officer stuck his hand out and waved to me as we passed. Why is that such a wonderful and thoughtful thing some might ask? What he didn’t know is that behind the wheel of the car he was greeting was an old man blubbering his eyes out for the German Shepherd he lost yesterday. This old man wants to thank him for a kind gesture when one was for sure needed. Thank you, sir.Chad Rosen

I feel your pain. My 14-year-old pit mix just passed two weeks ago and I still cry everyday! We will get through this, grateful to have gotten the time I had. I figured my best friend and companion was sent here for me and he did his job, so God needed his angel back.Kristin Damiani
