Dear Atlas, as your name suggests, you were a giant among your peers. You "supported the head", which is SO true, your head being your partner. Now you can rest, and enjoy the company of the heroes before you over the Rainbow Bridge. Send peace and comfort down to your partner, family and Department. Rest in peace, Warrior!

K9 Atlas,
You are a Hero in every sense of the word and thank you for your service. It is sad that you died in the line of duty but I am sure you will never be forgotten. May you get all the doggie treats in Heaven your little heart desires for a job well done here on Earth.

Much Love and Appreciation for Your Service

Thank you for all you have done to protect and serve your community and your human partner. It is truly obvious that you was a hero to your human partner. I see the thin blue line flag on your car door with your name. I think you were also a good sport and very patient by wearing whatever that stocking was on your head.
I know that you will be truly missed, but never ever forgotten.

Rest in Peace Atlas.

Human partner,
Thank you for your service and sacrifices, and I am deeply sadden about your tremendous lose.
Stay safe my brother.
