Tampa Police Unveil Newest K-9 Officer, A "Dog with a Blog"

It seems EVERYONE has a blog these days, even the newest four-legged recruit for the Tampa Police Department.

10-week-old Blu, the Bloodhound and his human partner, K-9 Officer Dave Savage, will meet the media for the first time this afternoon, but TPD officials have already unveiled "Blu's Blog," which will feature updates from their training all the way out to their time out on patrol.

Blu was donated to the Tampa Police Department by local businessman Richard Gonzmart.
