In the early days we hoped Bulldog would be able to pop in for a family supper if he was out on patrol, or I’d give the kids a big afternoon snack and push back serving dinner if his shift ended close to meal time. Then reality hit. More often than not he’d be on his way and have to respond to a situation, or be 5 minutes before the end of his shift and get a call, only to show up for supper 2 hours later than we’d expected.
