Essex Police Pup Gets A Blog
The progress of a young puppy is being detailed in an online blog as she prepares to become an Essex Police dog.
Flo was one of nine German Shepherd puppies born back in January to mum Freya - another Essex Police dog.
All the pups have been given names beginning with the letter 'F'.
