I have a GSD he's my third dog and it saddens me to read these articles. So I hope they throw the book at the POS 19 year old. RIP Gorky!

Sorry to hear about the K-9 as this dog died in the line of duty, and YES the officer lost his partner. Hopefully the officer gets well soon. My condolences go out to him. To the maggot who fired at the officer and k-9 I hope he gets the max. sentence. A**HOLE!!!
