Long Description:
This is an unusual tribute to those partners whose lives are fleeting.
A handler may work with three dogs during his or her career.
They also visit public events to teach children about working dogs.
A badge number is often assigned. Cars are specially marked.
This would be a modern petrosomatoglyph.
