He’d loved the dog very dearly, and upon Herman’s passing, he developed a strong affection for animals. Currently the proud owner of Kasey, an adorable Bernese mountain dog a dying had given to him as a Farwell gift, Judge Cicconetti has had it up to neck and chins with people who can’t muster any love for their own pets. Judge Mike, as he is fondly called, has garnered quite the reputation as the Painesville, Ohio Judge who has creative sentences for first-timers in minor offenses. Traffic violations and other misdemeanors which people are most likely to repeat nonchalantly. If the judge believes the sentences and sanctions are probably too cliché, he’ll come up with the most unusual sentences to teach these offenders some worthwhile lessons, while still remaining within the limits of the law.

A very special dog with a very special story!

By | January 26th, 2020|Categories: General|

A terminally ill rescue dog became a police K-9 for a day (CNN)Police in Pasco, Washington, turned a rescue pup with an inoperable tumor into a dashing police K-9. The dog, Eddie, was abandoned and spent almost a month wandering in nearby Benton City before he was rescued. Carin Brown, the Benton County animal control officer who caught Eddie, told CNN sister network HLN they had initially received a call about him in October 2019, but they were unable to capture the pooch. They finally caught him in late November. "We thought he had been hit by a car," she said Wednesday. "We rushed him to the vet and we discovered that he, unfortunately, had cancer." Authorities then reached out to their rescue partners, Mikey's Chance canine rescue, and Brown's friend, Kristi Kesler, agreed to become Eddie's foster mom for life. The inoperable tumor caused Eddie to be blind in one eye, and he was given six to 12 months to live. "He's just the best dog, so friendly, so well-behaved, he knows all of his commands, he's just the sweetest thing," Brown said. "He deserves six months to a year of all the love and happiness that we can [...]
