Those paw prints follow alongside you still, with his love, admiration, and vigilance as strong as ever. Continuing to live your life goodly and righteously, and celebrating Wix's, are the most honorable ways to serve his memory. The hurt and pain of his loss will never completely fade--that's the reality of being human--but there will be light, and he will forever be with you.

My condolences, thoughts, and prayers to you and yours.

Rest in Peace Officer Wix. I am so sorry & feel so horrible about this as I know your partner does as well. Condolences to all his officers that are 2 legged and 4 legged. Run and Fly high at The Rainow Bridge Furbaby.

Too many have died this year from that. And even tho both malfunctioned they have to come up with something else to save our 4 legged Officer's from this happening again.

Wix may your memory live on in all of the hearts that knew you. May all of the thoughts and prayers from those who learned about you through this story bring comfort to those left behind mourning your loss. Your life on this plain, I am certain has had a higher purpose and meaning for all. Thank you Wix for your spirit and service that continues to watch over and protect us.

K9 Wix:

Thank you for your law enforcement service to the Brown County, Wisconsin, Sheriff's Office. Let us not dwell on the horrible circumstances surrounding your death, But let us celebrate your life. Death does not have the final say! All dogs do go to heaven because you have a spirit and epitomize God's unconditional love. And He [Jesus] said to him, "Truly, I say to you, today you will be with me in Paradise" Luke 23:43. Now, my four-legged Comrade in Blue, rest easy, we will take it from here. "Well done, good and faithful servant" Matthew 25:11. May the Lord God bless you always.

I'm so sorry. My husband is a LEO in the area and had a shift on the PGA as well. We heard about the loss of Wix and our hearts go out to Deputy Lemberger. I know how connected K9 handlers are to their partners and the pain and sadness that he must feel. <3

In Wix short time here, I am sure he was treated very well by his handling officer, better than most dogs. Please don't try to take responsibility for this. It was not your fault.

As a golf fan and a law enforcement fan, I am saddened by this accidental event.

Thank you for your continued service in keeping Green Bay safe.

Thank you for your service Wix. I'm sorry you were taken from us. My heart goes out to your handler and all who knew you. I can't wait until we get to see you again. Until then, you go and run free and happily through the Heavens knowing you were loved and valued.
