This one was a lot more than man's best friend

Sheriff's Deputy Bill Martinez touches a depiction of Magnum, right, his canine partner that died last month, on a headstone dedicated Wednesday at the dog's memorial in Brooksville. Credited with saving Martinez's life two years ago, Magnum and his partner shared the Deputy of the Year honor in 2002. The two also were known in the community for the many performances they gave, especially in schools. Below, Martinez and his wife, Denise, listen during the service as members of the Sheriff's Office share their memories and mementos of Magnum. "The dog was well loved, as you can see from the overflow crowd," said sheriff's spokeswoman Deputy Donna Black.
