N.J. Officers Say Farewell To K-9
March 20, 2012
Police officers and their K-9 partners gathered for a ceremony for Rosko, an 8 1/2 year old Atlantic City police dog who was euthanized after suffering from cancer.
Rosko had served the department since 2005, reports the Press of Atlantic City.
"K-9 Rosko was not only a good street dog, but brought many smiles to the children and schools that he did demonstrations for," Atlantic City police Officer Joe Rodriguez said of his K-9 partner in a letter. "He was a loyal partner, a true professional, but, more importantly, a better friend to all."

Tears come to my eyes when I read stories with K9's involved. Thes e loyal dogs who ask for nothing but a pat on the head and a happy excited voice from their master. Its tough losing a friend and partner who never talks back, is always glad to see you and can't wait for the next toy or treat. Rosko will be hanging out with the rest of the devoted K9's in heaven. They just don't live long enough!
