K9 Max, your extensive, incredible devotion and service to mankind needs to be celebrated. What a special category of hero your are! It was time to be called home - to enjoy the company of other K9s like yourself. May God bless your partner, department and family with peace and comfort, and pride in the priceless gift you gave, your perfect dedication to being the very best.
And, you succeeded!

RIP K9 Max. I do not think of you as a “Dog on two feet” — I know what you were and who you are. You are human, in all your quirkiness, and we love you still. Thank you for your service.

I am sad to learn of the passing of a hero in K9 Max. I believe our Heavenly Father has welcomed him home into his loving arms where he will now patrol the Golden Streets of Heaven. May the Lord deliver Blessings, Comfort and Peace to his Handler, Family and all members of the Regional Transportation District Transit Police Department, Colorado.

It takes a piece of my heart every time a brother/sister in blue makes the ultimate sacrifice. It’s just as painful when its a K-9 Officer. although I left my department over three decades ago, I still love each and every one of you nationwide , and Puerto Rico too.

Lord God of Unfailing Love, to those families of our beloved nation, the United States of America, who are suffering in the wake of the loss of a Law Enforcement K-9 family member in the Line-of-Duty, help us to provide support. Allow us to be the rock and fortress in a time of immense pain and uncertainty. Help us to keep them safe and nourished in their time of grief, suffering beside them as we move toward healing and reconciliation. O Lord, in Your compassionate mercy, hear my prayer. In Christ Jesus' mighty and holy Name, and by His authority, I pray. Amen.

A Scripture Verse from the Law Enforcement Officer's Bible:

"Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted." [Matthew 5:4 CSB]

I will never forget how you instantly became anyone’s best friend as soon as they shared a bite of their snack, which you could always count on being me, as I could never say no to those sweet eyes. Fly high handsome boy, you did excellent work and will always be in our thoughts.
