Reflections for K9 Ivan

On 06/05/22, 10 years later, Ivan’s retired handler succumbed to the demons many of us have from this job. May they be reunited in heaven with peace bestowed on their souls.

Far undervalued is the officer who walks on four short legs. His dedication, valor and sacrifice is no less than any who walks on two, and his dedication to protect his handler, his colleagues, and the people is unswerving and absolute. Ivan, the world thanks you for your service and your sacrifice. May you rest in peace.
