To Brian and the O'Malley family, my most heartfelt prayers. I know I speak on behalf of our training group when I say that Aren's death has touched us all deeply. He was a great dog and we all loved working with him.

Aren, please know that you did your job well and your dad is ok. We will all watch out for him and make sure he stays safe.

"I will lay down my life for you
and expect nothing but love in return.
I protect my officer with my life,
and would gladly take a bullet in his place.
I am sent in to find lost children
and fugitives on the run.
I find drugs and weapons and even bombs.
I am the first sent in
and sometimes the last to leave.
I am the nose and ears of my officer.
I will protect and serve him.
I would die for him and for you.
I only ask for compassion and a kind word."

K9 Aren, no doubt, like all dogs, you were a friend as much as a partner. "Dog People" understand this. Your partner and all members of your family are in my prayers.

K/9 Aren you are a true hero that died protecting other police officers. God has called you to a new assignment to run free in the tall grass in heaven. I know that your handler will miss you but there's no doubt that you'll be waiting for your partner near the Rainbow Bridge in Heaven. Go now little puppy and eat some bones and play with Gods little children. God Bless You, K/9 Aren.

You were a great officer, I remember when you first started with Brian, and for the first week you deficated in the car multiple times. It was priceless to watch Brian so frustrated cleaning his car. But then Brian being one of the best handler/trainers around, got that problem worked out.
It was amazing watching you and Brian progress as a K9 team. You were a spitting image of your handler.. Tough as nails. It was my privilege and honor to serve with you. You will be greatly missed RIP

Thank you for your service Aren. 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.
