Rest IN Peace K9 Ivan. Stand by the Rainbow Bridge while your handler continues on with the watch. Know that you did your job and your killer will not hurt anyone again. My condolences to your Handler and the Tucson PD.

God Bless you Ivan for your ultimate sacrifice. My deepest heart-felt condolences to your handler and the rest of your "Human" Family. I truly understand what you are going through. Ivan pass along my hugs and sloppy kisses to Miko when you see him across the Rainbow Bridge, he knows how much I miss him. Besides his "Daddy & Mommy" I was blessed with spending play time with him before he also gave his all. Auntie M.B.

Ivan was a handsome officer of the law....the difference between our K9s and our human officers....our 4 legged protectors cannot know to defend themselves from human weapons so they dedicatedly throw themselves into combat to protect and defend.....I love you and I am sorry Ivan...and to his handler....I hope you soon find comfort after this huge loss...I am truly sorry

There is no Law Enforcement Officer on Earth that is more faithful
and devoted to his partner than a dog. Whether at work or at home the devotion between a dog and his handler/owner is unmatched .

The poem the rainbow bridge makes the passing of Ivan much more comforting.

Our hearts saddened and K9 Officer Ivan will be greatly missed. Our condolences to his handler and the many hours put in to train these units and they do an unbeliveable job. They and their Commander become a team as ''1." "All creatures great and small, the Lord God made them all." amen.

R.I.P. Officer K9 Ivan Thank you for your service

It is not the quantity of time spent with a special dog, it is the quality. With a dog such as Ivan, all time spent was quality time. He died doing the job he did best, guarding his master. He is at peace I am sure, knowing he gave his all to the one he loved the most.
