Reflections for K9 Gus

R.I.P. Gus,

This year will mark my 3rd year riding 250 miles on a bicycle. Each year I have honored one of our fallen heroes. This year I will ride from Philadelphia, PA to Washington, DC in honor of K9 Gus. We will leave the Philadelphia area on May 9th and arrive in Washington, DC on May 12th.

You too can honor Gus and the many other heroes that have died in the line of duty by donating in their honor, please visit the website at

K9 Gus,

You served the Great State of Florida, your handler Officer Jared Cloud and his family with dedication and honor. It was a pleasure watching you as you progressed through the training. From an overweight adolesent male to a well rounded tracking and detector K9. You will be missed.
