Just read about Kody. Can't say sorry enough. All the K-9 officers are very brave. I watch with honor. They do such a wonderful job, as do all police dogs. My heart goes out to his handler and the whole department. I know he will be missed greatly. I can see the bond and love between each officer and K-9. Thanks to each of you for putting you lives on the lines every day for us! Bless you!!
