A Prayer for K9 Max:

Heavenly Father, the Portsmouth, New Hampshire Police Department was fortunate to receive the gift of K9 Max from You. Let us celebrate his accomplishments and remember his selfless sacrifice in the Line-of-Duty. Now that K9 Max has left this life, please help the members of the Portsmouth Police Department cope with his loss with strength and courage. May K9 Max always be remembered as a trusted colleague who completed his missions with true dedication. 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.
