Protect and serve, but mostly protect each other

If you leave your kid in a hot car and he dies, you have committed a crime. I think we all agree on that. The authorities warn about this all of the time.  Hold onto that fact for a bit.

We are told that police  canines are "officers". It is a crime to kill a police dog. Police dog handlers refer to the dogs as their partner.

Why then when A police dog is left in a hot car the cop gets a 30 day suspension and nothing else? He killed his partner through negligence.

30 days seems light, even if only in that the dog was a costly investment by the department that was recklessly rendered useless.
While I am a dog liker, the whole concept of equating animals with humans is getting a bit over the top.
