K9 Fredy, "Hundreds of thousands of searches" - we read that you and your partner carried out, along with narcotics seizures. An overwhelming career that leaves us all in amazement! How much energy, stamina, courage and intelligence does that take on the part of a K9 Customs agent? Flawless focus in a position requiring patience during the days of long, repetitive searches to reacting in a split-second to situations requiring instant decisions and action - you fulfilled your duty flawlessly.
You are an unsung hero, who is deserving of the very best rest as you cross over to your Heavenly home! God gave you special gifts to be used on our behalf and and now He wants His time with you. Relax and enjoy your reward, we will see you in the stars at night. Let your partner know that all is well!
