A special celebration was put on this weekend for Millville's furriest police officer.
On Saturday, July 15th, the Millville Police Department threw a birthday bash for one of its K-9 dogs.
Local children, fellow officers, and the dog's handler came out to wish K-9 Rio a happy fifth birthday.
Rio received the royal birthday treatment with lots of hugs and kisses, plenty of gifts, and a tasty birthday treat complete with a candle.
The officials at the MPD thanked everyone who came out for the tail-wagging good time and made Rio's birthday one to remember.
