He was a beautiful soul. He lit his handler eyes with such passion on Instagram.

I would be in a dark depression. I would popped on and, bam...Loki did it again.

Looking at his handler eyes, took my frown away.

Loki change his handler, from looking like some tight golden boy that quote the law, with stiff upper lip.

To a man, that smiles with love in his heart. A smile that shows he's human. A smile that would melt a cold dark domestic violence victim angry soul to mush.

Everyday I sat and waited in wonder to see Loki, what and how he would light up that man's eyes today. . .

Loki isn't a Tool or Commodity there's scientific proof on that. Tools are objects, they can't breath, lick, walk or have a choice.

Loki chose to listen, he chose to obey and he chose to learn. Some dogs don't have a chance to qualify . Commodities is force, a place of ownership. Loki chose to be own by his handler.

Loki has a soul and he had chosen to be the best for he handler.

He died by the hand of a drunk driver. That had a choice not to!!

Loki in my eyes was an officer, he was family and he left behind A man that loved him. A FRIEND that needed him. A partner/coworkers that was a vital part of his life. A father that cared and loved him. Loki is going to be sadly missed and there is a whole in my heart of wanting him back. I really enjoyed every picture, that I had a pleasure smiling at.

Loki left a family of protecting Law Enforcement Angels that were his Brothers and Sisters at Arms. He wasn't just a Dog that knew tricks.

He was Family.

Why Dogs Don't Live As Long

Being a veterinarian, I had been called to examine a ten-year-old Irish Wolfhound named Belker. The dog's owners, Ron, his wife, Lisa, and their little boy, Shane were all very attached to Bilker and they were hoping for a miracle. I examined Bilker and found he was dying of cancer. I told the family there were no miracles left for Bilker, and offered to perform the euthanasia procedure for the old dog in their home.

As we made arrangements, Ron and Lisa told me they thought it would be good for the four-year-old Shane to observe the procedure. They felt Shane could learn something from the experience.

The next day, I felt the familiar catch in my throat as Belker's family surrounded him. Shane seemed so calm, petting the old dog for the last time, that I wondered if he understood what was going on. Within a few minutes, Bilker slipped peacefully away. The little boy seemed to accept Belker's transition without any difficulty or confusion.

We sat together for a while after Belker's death, wondering aloud about the sad fact that animal lives are shorter than human lives. Shane, who had been listening quietly, piped up, "I know why."

Startled, we all turned to him.
What came out of his mouth next stunned me. I'd never heard a more comforting explanation. He said, "Everybody is born so that they can learn how to live a good life -- like loving everybody and being nice, right?" The four-year-old continued, "Well, animals already know how to do that, so they don't have to stay as long."

To K-9 Loki and Handler; God Bless the both of you and always remember the good times with Loki!
