There isn't much on Earth more special than the loyalty of a great K9 partner. I am very sad about the loss of K9 Rocky and especially sad for his handler. Rest in peace, faithful friend. May your handler/partner find another great four legged friend to carry on where you left off. You'll never be forgotten.

Officer Rocky, thank you so much for your dedicated and selfless service. My thoughts are with your handler, fellow officers, fellow K9s, and entire community. You lived as a hero and will forever be remembered as one. Thankfully an overwhelming majority of people consider you far more than just a 'tool.' You will never be forgotten.

Rest in peace Rocky, thank you for your service. Having been a K9 handler, I can appreciate this loss and for handlers, this is like losing your right arm. You have trained hard with and depended on your 4 legged partner and it is a tremendous loss for any handler to lose his partner. God bless the handler of Rocky and any other handlers who have lost their closest friend. Thank you to all those who take on the tasks and responsibility that comes with being a K9 handler.

Words can not describe how awful I feel about this right now.
He was a warrior, a friend, a companion and a brother.
God will hold him close until he is rejoicing with his handler.
May the Lord bless and comfort those that are close to him and those that care the most.
