Don’t grieve for me I served you well.
I loved you more than you could ever tell.
I am now an angel in blue.
I laid my life on the line for you.
I wore my badge with honor every day,
to keep citizens safe and out of harm’s way.
So when you see a badge worn with pride,
remember their comrades and friends that have died

Are these magnificent creatures now with the Lord Himself in the Heavenly Realm? Pastor and Author Randy Alcorn at certainly feels this is factual, and even devoted 2 chapters of his best selling “Heaven” book to establish his case. Many of his inspiring articles are at: We can also get a glimpse of the Glorious Reunions awaiting their devoted Handlers, Trainers and Owners at May the Good Lord comfort these intelligent and brave animals and their human family and caring departments accordingly…

A Prayer for K9 Able:

Heavenly Father, the United States Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives was fortunate to receive the gift of K9 Able from You. Let us celebrate his accomplishments and remember his selfless sacrifice in the Line-of-Duty. Now that K9 Able has left this life, please help the members of the United States Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives cope with his loss with strength and courage. May K9 Able always be remembered as a trusted colleague who completed his missions with true dedication and the unconditional love he provided his caregivers. Lord God, by Your Word, death is not the end; it does not have the final say! For Scripture promises that all flesh shall see the salvation of God! All dogs do go to heaven, because they have a spirit that epitomizes Your unconditional love. After all, DOG spelt backwards is GOD! Well done, good and faithful servant! Amen.
