Some heroes have four legs, a wet nose, and a wagging tail. Thank you for your service. Rest in peace, K-9 Mako.

A K9 is not a pet, and not just man's best friend. A K9 is a partner, a protector, and confidant. This loss if felt across the force.

Mako, you have done your duty. Rest easy now. We have the watch from here.

Thank you Barney for your service to the Law Enforcement agency where you served. I know they will miss you. Everyday I go home, I look for my faithful friend to run up to the fence and greet me and when he doesn't, I know he's on the back patio sleeping. I usually sneak up to the fence and yell, "what? you sleeping on the job again and he jumps up and comes running to lick my face and I laugh so hard till I cry because it's like he saying, "hey I wasn't sleeping just resting my eyes". He is my morning joy and and midnight protector, so I know what you meant to your handler and family. May God keep you in perfect peace. I am MyBrothesrKeepr.

Dear Sirs, I am Brazilian and an English teacher. I had some police officers as students, I couldn't admire them tough. At least when they were wearing their uniforms, I couldn't and still cannot see Brazilian officers with same respect as I do respect American officers.

As I don't like to assume bad feelings as a state, a friend suggested me once I love dogs to watch and read about canine officers and their handlers in order admiring the handlers I could have admiration for our officers. Don't worry I respect them, I do because I am so afraid and panic with them as I am for any criminals.
So, thank you for sharing your love, your humanity, you are helping other humans feel as they must to.
I am very sorry for your losts.
