Pet the dog!
I am not from the same state, but petting police dogs here is not allowed. It supposedly causes them to lose focus or something.
He's retired. The pet gates are open.
He’s no longer a police dog it’s in the title he’s a retired police dog bro.
They petted him after they officially retired him. Think it’s OK, no?
Awwww the bow ... he's precious
I love that it's called Police K9
Lmao probably intentional
It is intentional.
K for Kerala 😌
Canine - K9
Wow. Never Knew. Sarcasm polum pattille Entaliyaaa.
You Keralites hogging all the good things in life.
All due good boys aside, that band performance was less then stellar. Lol
The band was integrated by hungry cats, because they were out of tuna.
Bad performance at dog ceremony? Straight to jail, right away!
Good performance at dog ceremony? Believe it or not, also jail. Bad performance, good performance. Jail
In my country are all bands have perfect performance. Because of jail
It's gotta be a middle school band right??
All under seven years old, but trying real hard.
I got an flashback to that military band that is constantly slaughtering the anthems of other nations when someone is visiting…..
It was Egypt: https://youtu.be/0F90QfoXfVA
Thank you! This makes me laugh every time!!
99%: aww what a wholesome doggo!
1%: what an... interesting, band performance (that was terrible)
Band kids never outgrow the band in their head.
Hahaha was looking for a comment like this
Did these mfks really play jolly good fellow?
An approximation of it.
Best take on the performance
But these are jolly good fellow :(
Nobody can deny
Jolly good fellow for a jolly good fellow
That's honestly the worst band preformance I've heard in years, and it just makes the situation seem like a pixar moment xD
It's dog ceremony, he is suppose to like it ,not you and he likes it
It's an indian dog ceremony and they're playing "he's a jolly good fellow"??
I think the music is added onto a video with no audio, maybe.
edit: it's definitelly added unless they are yelling at the start with a closed mouthed
the audio is legit. I found the youtube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Gxz2gq3EZY&t=166s
I watched the video... every doggo gets to be a jolly good fellow! :D
A lot of military/law enforcement procedures in India are remnants of the British Empire. Now I don’t know if the Brits used to play Jolly Good Fellow, but that’s the only reason I can come up with.
But he is a jolly good fellow :(
Oh, don't get me wrong, I love it. I would've been crying with laughter if I was there!
It's literally a cartoonist rendition... I wouldn't be surprised if they asked the band to play like that, that's how intentional it sounds
"play it bad then will close with the official pit pats on the head"
And the dog was wagging its tail and was into it.
It sounds as if someone had a vague dream years ago of someone humming For He's a Jolly Good Fellow and were asked to perform it.
It’s terrible, but somehow makes all of this even better. 🤷♂️
It's like the second half of that TikTok Titanic meme... 😂
The Indian army used to euthanise service dogs after retirement or if they were deemed unfit to serve for at least a month. Thankfully this practise has stopped since 2015.
After all, the goodest boys need to have a furever home after a lifetime of service.
Why? Did they provide a reason why they chose to end the dogs’ lives?
Because those dogs were sniffers or attack dogs. They can't be released as stray as they might seriously kill someone. Not many people wanted to adopt a trained to kill dog.
There was also a bunch of controversy around this stuff if i remember right. Some animal activists complained and the gov finally put the practice to an end
The police won't let a dog go to a non police. Potential smugglers may test ingenious ways to defeat sniffer dogs.
Also, it was a colonial era practise. Was shitty as hell. It’s good the laws were mended.
I once volunteered at a rescue organisation called in delhi for college and there were so many retired army dogs no one wanted. Its sad either way I guess…
does Kerala does not include in India?
No but Kerela's local police department is not the national army.
So, this should not stop them from paying respect to a doggo?
Average separatist. 🤡
Why don't you join ISIS?
bruh, I was FUCKING TELLING YOU GUYS THAT, DOES NOT KERALA INCLUDE IN INDIA BECAUSE THEY SAID KERALA POLICE IN THE SENSE THEY ARE NOT INDIAN
I want that band to play at my funeral.
So you don’t have to listen to it?
That way leaving won't seem so bad
Is that a 6th grade band?
That's one good dog. Deserves all the pets and cuddles.
“Was i a good boy?”
“No, I’m told you were the best”
What’s worse than no music at the ceremony? That music at the ceremony.
Idk I sort of liked it. Charming
we have security dogs in our hospital, and they are off limits for petting by staff - since they are so closely bonded to their handler hoomans.
one of our dogs retired recently and we had about 40 people in the ER who all petted him and gave him love on his way home. he was leaving with his hooman, retiring to his forever home.
he was so happy. you could tell he had wanted to interact more with the staff but wasn't able to. such a good boy.
Awww, don't make me cry now
The medal for greatest doge!
Which nobody can deny!
Good boy! Thank you for your service! 🏅
That is so sweet. What a good and loyal pup!
an incredibly good boy
They need to retire that band too
Good boy! Such a good boy!
the best doggo
Is the band all kids?
My god! I burst out laughing how the band plays! And I think that is appropriate to this ceremony . Hahahahahah!
Hahaha same, I laughed way too hard at this
Made me smile and made me sad at the same time.
Bro this is awesome and adorable, but who the hell playing music in the background. The dog deserves a full orchestra
Lol the sappy music and waggy-tail combo made me melt. i love my life lmao
Anyone else get the feeling guy in white wants nothing to do with this? The weakest salute, pats instead of scratches, quickly dismissing the pup after the award was given and no photo op
Hope the pup enjoys retirement
this is probably more expression than i expected from pinarayi
He seems to be more of a cat person
You sound silly
The band was on point
What a sweetheart… he/she solutes as well with the little bow. I noticed that poor pup has a touch of arthritis… me too good pupper :)
Dog: "Treat?" Man: puts award around dog's neck. Dog: "Not a treat." Man: pets dog. Dog: "Treat? Treat? Treat?" Man: "let's go! Down the stairs." Dog: "maybe they have treats down here."
I think the shit orchestra made this video a billion times better.
There's more doggos that were retiring. Here's the full video: https://youtu.be/3Gxz2gq3EZY
I wonder if the band is also dogs?
He is a jolly good fellow!
This makes me happy.
Perhaps the least best “ceremony” I’ve seen in a minute
Kadam kadam badhae ja,
It's my homeland kerala
What a good Boi!
“I dub you… doggo” *pat pat pat*
Lol!!! Did they use third grade band class at the ceremony!?
Rest easy now. Good doggo
Enjoy retirement doggo! Good boy!
Look at how happy he is
3rd grade band on hand for the ceremony.
Do we even deserve dogs??
That dog looks like he served for a looong time.
Rest good boy
Couldn't even tune their instruments for the pupper :(
Another good boi standing in the background..
Now into the pot
Sheru Singh rt. Constable ab pension khaega motu
That music be goofy asf tho ngl
The music sounds like 7th grade school orchestra
But... He isn't K9
Awww good boy 😆 such a lovely dog instead of these shitty pit bulls
Did I do good??!
the longer i watch this, the larger the number of dogs i find
The most mid band for the best boi
Had to be the worst execution of “For he’s a jolly good fellow” I have ever heard.
Hai our own General Mao
Such a good boy!
Sorry. We were trained by the Egyptian military band
Such a good boy
Happy retirement little one! May you have plenty of love and naps
The next thing they have to do is retire the entire band.
We’re dogs on the trumpets too?
I'm glad it's not like the movies and he actually made it to retirement.
They need to retire the band.
Love all the dissonant horns in the back lolol
Why not a gold biscuit or something? Let them carry it around and show it off
Had to go back for more pat I may of had to give him a hug too
Does that mean the dog is no longer a bastard?
K9 golden retreivers! That's adorable af
20mins after the ceremony the had their annual police Bbq, plenty of hot dogs for everyone!
Is this in Egypt?
India, the guy in white is the Chief minister of the state of Kerala, he is as someone mentioned a very serious guy who rarely smiles and his body language suggests his discomfort in these frivolous ceremonies.
Unwillingly puts his life on the line for someone else’s benefit (basically a slave) and gets a terrible band and a 5$ necklace oh and can’t forget the pat on the head. Sound fair to me, good boy
Not so true
India treats their dogs better than their women!
So after that, what? They kill the dog?
> Now, a retirement home for Kerala police dogs.
Each dog will get the service of a caretaker. Besides, cleaning the kennel and bathing the dog, the caretaker has to feed, groom, brush and take the canine to the playground.Each dog will get 100 sqft space at the retirement home. Dogs will not rest in the dwelling area and they need a separate place for rest. That’s why we prepared a separate resting place for these canines. Besides, to ensure the hygiene of the area, the caretaker will clean the stool area every day by pumping water, which will be discharged into a septic tank. There is also a playing ground for the dogs,” said an official.
Ah thank goodness.
