During the National Night Out event at the Milton Police Station on Wednesday, August 3, officers from Milton, Bellingham and the Norfolk County Sheriff's Office provided a K9 Unit demonstration.
After volunteering to suit up and take a bite from two dogs last year, I was elated to get the chance again at Wednesday's event.
Armed with the knowledge I would be safe in the large bite suit, I decided to add another element to my second round against the police canines, a helmet cam.
Though I have participated in a pair of demonstrations, Milton Canine Officer Larry Lundrigan assured me I was not an expert until I took a live bite, sans suit. This is not a challenge I am – or will ever – be up for.
