Dogs & Guns # 1


"POLICE WIN MASCOT, GIRL LOSES PET -- CHICAGO -- When acting Captain Louis Capparelli of Maxwell Street police station in Chicago purchased Lassie for his daughter, his wife insisted he keep the dog at the station until she was housebroken. Lassie approved the atmosphere of one of the toughest lockups in Chicago, walked beats with cops, refused to be transplanted. Capparelli has had to insist she spend at least eight hours a day in the station to get some sleep. Far from being a child's pet, Lassie is now the pistol packin' mascot of 200 burly cops." 4/7/44

How cute is that? Doesn't look happy, though.
