Prince Albert’s Best of the Best crossed the red carpet on two legs Wednesday evening, and in one case, four.
Prince Albert Police Service Dog Daxa stole the show when she arrived to cheers from the crowd, who gathered around the German Shepard to take photos. Daxa received the 2018 BOB award for Prince Albert’s Best Police Officer. It marked the first time an animal has taken home a Best of the Best honour.
“If she could talk, she’d say thanks for the nominations and all the votes,” her handler Kelsey Bighetty said. “These dogs do a lot for the police service … to get this recognition here in Prince Albert, it’s pretty amazing, it’s nice to show support for our service dogs.”
