People say I'm "Just a Dog" then why would it be,
if you spell my name backwards god is what you see
I have many jobs, one is protecting your life
or making sure your family's safe
when that prowler is out at night.
My Partner calls me Family
My Prayers to K-9 Pepper, and his Partner and To the Department. K-9 Pepper, May you guard the doors of haven and watch over your Partner from above. Thank you for your service. For it is not just those with 2 legs who are born with a soul that has courage to wear a badge

Where does one start, even a suspect shooting at officers, but shooting kill the K9 is repulsive and only show the blind faith of duty K9s provide.

I am sadden for Pepper's handler, the agency and especially, Pepper.

Pepper, know you served your community well, without any regard to what might happen to you, much like you handler.

WCSO, KNOW that my heart, prayers and tears are with you all. God speed Pepper!

Respectfully submitted,
