Distinguished Visitors

Our preschool/daycare center recently welcomed some local heroes – human and canine.  Lenny, Bronson and Riggs, along with their human partners, came by to say hello and teach the children a thing or two about being a police officer.  We discovered that Bronson is the brother of the dog who plays “Bear” on the TV show “Person of Interest.”  We also discovered that Riggs’ partner, Officer Dan Metztger, is a son of the parish!  His grandfather owned Metgzer Pharmacy which was located on Kenmore Blvd. back in the day.  Dan was baptized, received his First Communion and was Confirmed at I.C.  The dogs and their owners live and work together and when the dogs retire, they live out their lives with their partner and his family.
