Today some kindergarteners at Ridgewood Elementary School received a surprise visit from K9 Deputy Louie and his Handler Colby Henson of the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office. Louie displayed his excitement for playing fetch (his reward for a job well done), took questions from the students, enjoyed lots of pats on the head, and gave them a tour of his patrol car.
The children enjoyed learning about Louie and especially exploring the vehicle made just for him. He even let them try out the lights and sirens.
Louie loved Kindergarten and is thinking of becoming a substitute teacher when he retires from the Sheriff’s Department.
