There are all kinds of bonds in this world, but one of them is quite unique, and that’s the bond between you and your dog. Whenever these creatures feel something is wrong, you can always count on their help and protection. They are there for you in the hardest moments. That’s exactly what it was like for a police officer when hurricane Irma hit back on 10 September 2017. It made catastrophic landfall in South Florida, and many people left their homes in fear.

When the storm hit, some people had evacuated, but not all. These included many who didn’t have a place to hide, as well as, police members and guards. Everyone was on high alert and just hoped for the best, keeping close together. The feeling of fear was present everywhere.

The Fort Lauderdale Police Department tweeted a photo that made people pray for those affected by Hurricane Irma. In the lovely picture, Police Officer Somma lay next to his K-9 counterpart, Eddie. The two were having a rest when the storm hit Florida, but that’s not what moved million hearts. The most astounding part of their story was that they were holding hands.

This is the picture of the Officer Somma and his K-9 companion that went viral on the internet.
