Thank you for your service Ori. 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.

A Prayer for K9 Ori:

Thank you for your law enforcement service to the citizens of Antrim County, Michigan and to the Antrim County Sheriff’s Office. Let us celebrate your accomplishments and remember your selfless sacrifice in the Line-of-Duty. In Luke 3:6 Jesus promised, “And all flesh shall see the salvation of God.” So, death is not the end; it does not have the final say! All dogs do go to heaven because you have a spirit that epitomizes God's unconditional love. After all, DOG is GOD spelt backwards! Now, my furry, four-legged Comrade-in-Blue, rest easy, we will take it from here.

"Well done, good and faithful servant" [Matthew 25:11 ESV]

Almighty God, the Antrim County Sheriff’s Office was fortunate to receive the gift of Ori from You. Now that he has left this life, please help them cope with their loss with strength and courage. I know that their beloved companion no longer suffers, and will live on in many fond memories. May he always be remembered as a trusted colleague who completed his missions with true dedication as he was trained, as well as, the unconditional love he provided his caregivers. May the Lord God bless you always. In Jesus’ holy and mighty name, I pray. Amen.

K9 Ori,
It is truly heartbreaking to lose such a young Michigan K9 officer. But serving for even a short time puts you on the heroes list! God's timetable is different than ours and He called you home. Good will come somehow from this although it can't be seen now. May your partner's heart be bathed in comfort and healing.
