State police patrol dog Argo was seen running at top speed during a training exercise last Friday in New Market.  The new bullet-proof vest he sported didn’t seem to slow him at all.

Thanks to the generosity of three area businesses – Holtsman Corp., Luray Caverns and the Buck Obsession TV show in Fauquier County – Argo and two other police dogs, Baron and Ace, are now protected by the most advanced ballistic vest available.

The three vests, at $750 each, are life savers, and these businesses are to be commended for their generosity.
