Chip got to this story before me

But here is a picture of the great dog Bane:


He is said to be a Dutch Shepherd and Belgian Malinois mix. What is certain is that he is 100% a good dog. Who's a good boy, who is?

Powhatan county, even though it is below the fall line, is way up north from where I am. Full of swamps and swamp dwellers, no doubt.

He was a good guy and he liked good dogs. Good, pointy dogs.

I'm good with any kind of herding dog. This one looks up to the task!

Amartel said...

He's sitting on a cop car so is he a deputy dawg? Or did he just feel like resting on his lawrels?

Sixty Grit said...

Amartel, those are terrible puns.

And by terrible I mean awesome! That was the leashed you could do, right?

"There's always someone ahead of me", she complained. At least with the help of Wiki, I will die slightly less dumb. I thought Bane was a dignified sounding name for a dutiful and beautiful dog. Since my only experience with bane was the word in the phrase bane of my existence along with reading about The Bane and Blessing Sale of used goods held by the church ladies in Jan Karon's Mitford series, I looked it up.

While the definition of cause of great distress or annoyance is a fun and ironic fit for a police dog and might be where the name tracks back to, someone else got there first:

Possessing a mix of brute strength and exceptional intelligence, Bane is a fictional supervillain appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics

Woof indeed.

I never heard of the DC Bane, other than Washington, speaking of the bane of our existence, I just figured that a police dog would be the bane of a criminal's life. Go figure.

Even without the red hat, he's doing his part as the American born descendant of furriners to Make American Great again and again!
