What?! No ‘retirement bone’?!

Amazing creatures on their own, dogs are known to be “man’s best friend.” Some dogs, however, raise the bar to a level most can never attain.

Such is the case with Doxie, K-9 officer with the Halifax County Sheriff’s Office, who officially retired Monday.

Doxie and his handler, Deputy Greg Richardson appeared before Halifax County commissioners Monday in recognition for their work.

While human retirees generally receive a watch to commemorate their tenure, Doxie was presented with a special collar and a plaque to commemorate his work, according to Halifax County Sheriff Jeff Frazier.

“He’s done a good job,” Frazier said.

Richardson said Doxie came to work with the department in 2003. He was a year-and-a-half old. He described Doxie in his early years as the skinniest and ugliest dog he had ever seen.

He said he and Doxie have a bit of a “Turner and Hooch” relationship.

“We kind of started out on the wrong foot,” Richardson said.
