Police drug dog captures hearts of three little girls

The Daurer sisters respond poorly to the command “sit.” If you ask them to “stay,” forget it.
“This is the picture of the dog,” 9-year-old Hannah said, slapping away her sister’s hand. “Don’t touch it, Aspen.”
But love is funny. Science – which is never funny – tells us: Opposites attract. So, perhaps it stands to reason Hannah and her twin 3-year-old little sisters, Aspen and Brooke, leashed their hearts to the most obedient dog ever.
“We love him,” Aspen said.
The Daurer girls met Kamo the half-German Shepherd and Officer Gene Rapp at the Maverick gas station across from their home, where Rapp presented the girls with Kamo’s business card.
“I’ve become much more approachable with a dog,” Rapp said.
After gossiping about their dog day of February that night – dog-tired but not tired of Kamo the dog – Hannah, Aspen and Brooke each fell asleep pawing Kamo’s mugshot.
We met the Daurers a week later. With Kamo still dominating the conversation, we decided to call for backup.
“He hears me get my uniform on and he gets all amped up.” Rapp said.
We invited Kamo, Rapp and the Dauers to reunite in the same parking lot where they first met. And on the second date of this budding relationship, treats changed hands, finally a character in this story agreed to sit (it was the dog) and three squirmy little kids made a couple of friends on the force – perhaps building trust in the law, and learning a lesson in obedience mom and dad hope rolls over to life at home.
“They’re very innocent and the world kind of lacks that sometimes,” Rapp said, “so we like to interact [with children] as much as we can.”
“You want to come to our house?” Brooke asked Rapp and Kamo.
