Reflections for K9 Luna

I'm truly sorry for the loss of K9 Luna. She gave her life to serve and protect and will always be honored and forever remembered. She’s now in heaven with all the other fallen angels.
Thank you, K9 Luna, for all did, Forever Rest in Peace!

The First & The Last

The first to sense the hostility of a suspect,
The first to react to protect his master,
The first to enter where danger lurks,
The first to detect the hidden intruder.
The first to take action against violence.
The first to sense his master’s joy.
The first to know his master’s sorrow or fear.
The first to give his life in defense of his master.
The last to be forgotten by those who work with others like him.
They know him as a “Partner”, not just an animal.

As I told my dad tonight, God had we humans in Mind when he created canines. When I die and enter His Kingdom, I hope to see Luna running towards me with Hanzi, Muffin, Bear and Coach, my late beloved dogs.

K9 Luna
I was very saddened to hear of your ultimate sacrifice. I also offer my sincerest sympathy to your human family and especially your partner. A very special day will come. Rest and relax until you see your partner and then you will run on the air with wings going like a hummingbird's. So fast you'll be in your partner's arms before s/he can say Luna. Be together forever.

Rainbow Bridge
“Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge. When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together….”

My heart is broken for K9 Luna and your Department. She lived and died a Hero, and is irreplaceable. Her age makes this even more horrific and I would give anything to be able to say something to take away your pain. I can only offer my condolences and undying support of the police and the sacrifice you all make. Got your 6!

Rest In Peace K9 Luna, and thank you for our service!
