The Editors:

Sitting on the Mississippi River bluffs against the backdrop of the city he protects, Saint Paul canine police officer Boomer* has made it home after surviving a gunshot to the face.

His human partner, Officer Patrick Murphy, reports Boomer is doing very well, "playing and running in his backyard like a puppy". But this good dog has a Medal of Valor to go with his beloved Kong toy, and to remind us that his backyard is just a little bit bigger than ours.

 

*For Boomer's complete story, please see our article "Promise to Presence" in this issue.
