TNT: Dog’s memorial given priority over soldier’s?

Re: “Puyallup officer, colleagues bid farewell to 4-legged partner” (TNT, 6-14).

I like dogs; I have two myself. I also support those who serve in law enforcement. However, I question why editors at The News Tribune chose to place the story of the brave police dog’s memorial on the front page while placing the story of the memorial service for a Joint Base Lewis-McChord officer who truly gave his life for his country on page three.

Something just doesn’t seem right about the priority placed on these two newsworthy events.
