    Police Dog has Pacemaker

    Police Dog Back On Beat Thanks To Pacemaker
    Device Made For Humans Has 'Blaze' Doing Duty Once Again

    (CBS) NEW YORK A dynamic dog now has a new lease on life. You'll never imagine what's keeping this canine cop alive.

    Energetic, adorable, accomplished -- all these things describe 4-year-old Blaze the police dog. Just ask his partner, Capt. Efrain Madera.

    "He's my partner. My friend. He's like a son," Madera said.

    Together the pair work the sometimes violent and dangerous Rikers Island prison yards for the Department Of Corrections.

    Great story!!

    I was reading about pacemakers for pets a few years ago and the article said that they actually use pacemakers that have been removed from people. I guess pacemakers need to be replaced every so often, but they are still in good working order, so they use them in pets.

    IF only everyone would treat their dog this way, the world would be a better place, IMHO.
