A high school resource officer in Arkansas is getting a whole lot of attention for her yearbook photo. That’s because Bryant Police Department K-9 Officer Mya Tarvin’s smiling face showed considerably more tongue than teeth.
The young Belgian Malinois was included in the staff section of Bryant High School’s 2019 yearbook. It’s fair to say that her pointy ears and big pink tongue standing out amongst her human colleagues—in a good way.
Mya, who is trained in narcotics, tracking, and article recovery, works alongside her partner and handler Sgt. Paul Tarvin. According to the Bryant Public Schools website, the two spend their days patrolling Bryant High School and associated school functions. It’s an important job worthy of an important spot in the yearbook.
Mya isn’t the only dog to have been featured in a school yearbook, but she’s certainly one of our favorites.
“Good job Mya, you are representing the PD with pride.....Hornet Pride!!!” the Bryant Police Department wrote on Facebook.
Good job is right!
