Mods, if I've posted this in the wrong forum please move as needed. I just received a phone call from a personal friend "tattoosteve" who was checking on me. I haven't posted for awhile and he was concerned. Receently a fellow K9 officer was tragically killed while on duty but his dog survived. I have been dealing with that and while this is not my first loss in this profession, I am not dealing with it too well.
At any rate, I just wanted to say that it is truly an honor to be associated with a forum comprised of people who care enough to call and sincerely check on you. Steve and MultiMat, thank you, and you both know what for. I'll get it together as soon as I can.
For now, Rest in peace my friend Officer Brian Hayden and to your partner "Sampson", continue the mission with your new handler. It's what Brian would want you to do and Ajo and I will be there every step of the way on this new journey.
Thanks everyone for letting me get that out.
Stew and K9 partner Ajo...
