K-9 EJ, You pushed yourself to the limit until your body finally showed signs of distress. Your intense devotion, drive and concentration shows what an incredible hero you are. May God grant your partner peace and rest, knowing that you went home in the line of duty after giving your all and more. Thank you, faithful servant.

A Prayer for K9 EJ:

Heavenly Father, the New York State Police was fortunate to receive the gift of K9 EJ from You. Let us celebrate his accomplishments and remember his years of service as a Certified Law Enforcement Canine. K9 EJ died in the Line-of-Duty on Wednesday, October 2, 2019 when he died of heat exhaustion while conducting a cadaver search. Now that K9 EJ has left this life, please help the members of the New York State Police; his handler, and; his family cope with his loss with strength and courage. May K9 EJ 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! Now, crossover the ‘Rainbow Bridge’ and be received by your Creator. Amen.
