Trust in me, my friend, for I am your comrade.
I will protect you with me last breath.
When all others have left you
and the loneliness of the night closes in,
I will be at your side.

Together we will conquer all obstacles
and search out those whom might wish harm to others.
All I ask of you is compassion,
the caring touch of your hands.

It is for you that I will unselfishly give my life
and spend my nights unrested.
Although our days together
may be marked by the passing of the seasons,
know that each day at your side is my reward.

My days are measured by
the coming and going of your footsteps.
I anticipate them at every opening of the door.
You are the voice of caring when I am ill;
the voice of authority when I’ve done wrong.

Do not chastise me unduly,
for I am your right arm,
the sword at your side.
I attempt to do only what you bid of me.
I seek only to please you and remain in your favor.

Together you and I shall experience
a bond only others like us will understand.
When outsiders see us together
their envy will be measured by their disdain.

I will quietly listen to you
and pass no judgment,
nor will your spoken words be repeated.
I will remain ever silent,
ever vigilant, ever loyal.

And when our time together is done
and you move on in this world,
remember me with kind thoughts and tales,
for a time we were unbeatable.
Nothing passed among us undetected.

If we should meet again on another street
I will gladly take up your fight.
I am a Police Working K-9 and together
We are guardians of the night.

K9 Kilo is hero in every sense of the word. I know the love and devotion of this fine officer was selfless -- because that's not only how he was trained -- but that is in the heart of a dog. My deepest sympathies at your Department's loss. He died in the line of duty - as a hero protecting his brother officer. My God bless his soul.

I never worked as a K-9 handler.
I trained with them and loved them.
He was a hero and saved the lives of those he worked with.
He shall ever be in my thoughts and prayers.
God bless the handler and his brothers/sisters.
I hope peace finds you all soon.
