(Newser) – A Secret Service dog died on Saturday after falling from the roof of a New Orleans parking garage while on duty. The Belgian Malinois was doing a security sweep next to the Ritz-Carlton where Joe Biden was scheduled to speak at a fundraiser for Louisiana Sen. Mary Landrieu. WWLTV reports that a motorcade rushed the canine to a veterinary hospital, but nothing could be done. Even in death, some details remain clandestine: The AP reports that the dog's name and gender won't be released.
