Blu the bloodhound is headed for stardom online judging by the reception he received Monday during a Tampa police press conference.
Just 10 weeks old, Blu already has his own blog thanks to his K9 patrol partner Officer Dave Savage. Savage will chronicle the work and fun of developing Blu as a full-fledged member of the Tampa Police Department, at tpdpolicedogwithablog.blogspot.com.
Blu was donated to the department by Columbia Restaurant owner Richard Gonzmart.
