I do hope that slimeball is charged with attempted murder of a Police Officer or better yet, send him down here to Sheriff Joes' jail and let those inmates who care for the stray animals explain to him the fundamentals of pain.

The asshole should have been taken out. If anyone would have done that to my k-9 he would have been carried away in a body bag.

Get well soon Kato. Can't wait to see you back on the beat. I hope the d-bag gets a long sentence.

Good job Kato, I am glad you will recover. I lost my partner to a dental procedure. She was a great tracker and bomb dog. Have your partner give you an extra milk bone for me.
