District employee supports North Dakota flood fight and saves a puppy along the way
Paul Machajewski, Corps of Engineers, St. Paul District employee supporting the Red River of the North flood fight, plays with 11-month-old puppy “Chucky” at a park in Fargo, N.D., April 30. The dog’s owner, Timothy Murphy, met Machajewski to say thanks after he saved his dog during temporary levee construction in Fargo. Murphy, a published poet, also sent a poem to Machajewski to show his gratitude. According to Murphy, Chucky is an escape artist that doesn’t have a reverse gear or know how to stop. Machajewski said he was just glad to help and as a fellow dog owner, he said he knew he had to do what he could to protect the dog from harm during the levee construction.
