K9 Vader, Officer Morgan & WLECHA
We recently attended the retirement party for K9 Vader from the Brown Deer Police Department. Vader served 8+ years with his handler Officer Josh Morgan. K9 Vader and Officer Morgan are very special to our family for all the time they gave to Emma when she was very ill. Completely unselfish and true examples of kindness.
Officer Morgan is also the treasurer for the Wisconsin Law Enforcement Canine Handlers Association (WLECHA). At the end of the retirement ceremony, we presented him with a $3,000 grant on behalf of the Emma Loves Dogs Foundation.
WLECHA applied for funding to provide supplemental training at their annual fall conference. This grant will allow all K9 members access to the training regardless of their departments budgets. Emma would be proud to know that we are supporting the training that keeps these dogs, their handlers and their communities safe. To learn more about WLECHA, please click here.
Below are some pictures from today and from August when several WLECHA members visited Emma and made her an honorary member of their association.
