On February 15, 2016 the Broken Arrow Police Department Posted a final farewell to K-9 Dash
K-9 Dash EOW 2-14-16
Thank you for your service to the citizens of Broken Arrow you will be missed……from Dash’s Partner Officer Smith……
There is an unfortunate end that awaits every K9 handler. The wonderful joys of chasing bad guys together is balanced by one day having to say a final goodbye. This evening I had to make the choice to send K9 Dash off ahead of me and end his recent suffering. The last few weeks he had been experiencing seizures most likely caused by a brain tumor. Today he suffered a severe stroke and just could not continue his good fight.
“And when our time together is done, and you move on in the world, remember me with kind thoughts and tales. For a time we were unbeatable, nothing passed among us undetected. If we should meet again, on another street, I will gladly take up your fight. I am a Police Working Dog and together, we are Guardians Of The Night.”
