Bobby the dog
My friend, Clive, in England sent me the story about Bobbie the family dog a year ago and now has sent me a recap. I love this story of the dog who wasn't good enough for the Royal Marines but became a Bobbie in Salisbury. It seems Clive's grandfather took the dog home to his mother, Rosie Roper as a pet after rescuing him from the Royal Marines. The dog would often disappear only to show up at dawn as the family was waking up. Finally the Roper Family discovered Bobbie was making the rounds with the police. He would "train" the new officers on the beat!! Although the article above is small, you can still get a good look at Bobbie in the photo.
