Sweet girl, we named one of our rescue puppies for you. We shared your story and our reason for picking her name. They were so touched by you that they decided to keep her name Petra in your honor.

Petra, you will always know what a "Good Girl" you are. May God pet you and receive you with open arms to your new home and place among the peace makers. We all appreciated the courage you demonstrated with nerves of steel at both ends of your leash. The bond of K-9 and their Officer partner is like a bond of no other. No worries Petra you will see them again..for Heaven has no clocks so your time will fly,until you both will be reunited. Good bye Good Girl, you will never be forgotten. Thank you for your service, gone from our eyes, but never from our hearts.

K9 Petra you are now relieved of your duties. You can now run free in the tall grass in heaven and eat as many steaks bones as you want. Colorado Springs PD has lost a great K/9, you will be missed but not forgotten. Thank you for your service and may God Bless You.

Chief Carey:

My heart breaks every time I learn another K9 Officer has ended their watch under circumstances such as these. I co-wrote the recently passed new law in Alabama to enhance the protection for K9's our state did not afford, and I am proud to have served our K9 Community and their handlers. I am an attorney who has spent the majority of my career defending Police and law enforcement personnel, and I simply wanted to extend my deepest sorrow and sympathy for the early passing of another fine Officer, Petra. PLEASE send the same to her handler, who I am certain is grieving mightily. Regards, Tom Hale
