An emotional farewell to a police dog on his “final journey”

The Daily Mail on line posted a story about a police dog, Kaiser from Massachusetts, on his final journey.  He had a battle with kidney failure and his partner had to make the tough decision to put him down.  This is one of the most respectful, gut wrenching, heart wrenching stories we have seen in a long time.  We all know what it feels like when you have to make that decision.  Rest In Peace, Kaiser-you have all of our fur babies who have passed on to the Rainbow Bridge to play with now.

From the article on dailymail.co.uk

In a heart-breaking Facebook post on the Plymouth Police Working Dog Foundation’s page Officer Lebretton wrote, ‘It is with deep regret and sorrow that I announce the retirement of my partner K-9 Kaiser. Kaiser was recently diagnosed with severe kidney disease/failure … [He] battled this disease with vigor and toughness like I have never seen before.’

In a final eulogy on the social media site Lebretton spoke directly to his fallen furry partner writing, ‘RIP my boy. I could not have asked for a better partner or friend … You made me a better person, a better handler, and a better cop. Till we meet again kai. I love you and will miss you daily.’
