“Pure joy” – This news item is a mix of wonderful and tragic. Six weeks ago, the little girl was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Survival statistics are grim. Last month she had asked for pictures of dogs to help her through her treatment and was inundated with over 75,000 from around the world. Then local law enforcement stepped in.
“A terminally ill schoolgirl with an inoperable brain tumor was visited by around 40 cops and their police dogs.
Little Emma Mertens loves dogs so much, officers visited her and brought their K-9 colleagues to her home in Hartland, near Milwaukee.
After hearing about her illness and her love of animals, police departments from around Wisconsin made the time to take the K-9s to her home to cheer her up.
A queue of officers and police dogs waiting to meet her stretched along her road as squads from around the state offered to help put a smile on Emma’s face at the weekend.”
