A Prayer for K9 Rocco:

Heavenly Father, the Vernal, Utah Police Department was fortunate to receive the gift of K9 Rocco from You. Let us celebrate his accomplishments and remember his years of service as a Certified Law Enforcement Canine. K9 Rocco was killed in the Line-of-Duty on Wednesday, August 14, 2019. Now that K9 Rocco has left this life, please help the members of the Vernal Police Department; his handler, and; his family cope with his loss with strength and courage. May K9 Rocco 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.
