The Today Show Has ‘Lost’ One Of Their Beloved, Four-Legged Buddies.💖
In his short 6 years, Wrangler did more than most humans.💗
The original Today Show service dog, a yellow Labrador named Wrangler, has gone Over the Rainbow Bridge.
Wrangler spent his life as a guide dog and a K-9 who patrolled New York City train stations.
In January 2015, the “Today” show introduced its morning viewers to then 10-week-old Wrangler, a yellow Lab who was on the path to become a guide dog. Now, the show is saying Wrangler has sadly ‘pas.s.ed aw.ay’ due to liver disease.
A life fulfilled for this “puppy with a purpose.”💖
His arrival as a puppy and his impact on the staff — saying he had been with the staff for nearly 300 shows and 600 treats.
Past being a guide dog, Wrangler was also a public servant.
Additionally, he graduated the Connecticut state police dog school in December 2019 (where he majored in explosives detection), working with Trooper First Class Kevin Reed of the Mass Transit Unit, protecting trains between New Haven and New York City.
Thank you, Wrangler, for your service and your friendship, To me, Wrangler was my super early morning buddy.💖
Prayers for Saxton, Bill, Connecticut State Police and the TODAY show crew. Wrangler was a bright light in your show!
God bless them!🙏💖
