Thoughts of all K-9 handlers.

K-9 Handlers have a very special relationship with their dogs and over time that grows. They feel a great loss when something happens to their partner. This section is dedicated to those gone but not forgotten....

"He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion."

Darren Maurer and his K9 Rocky competed in the annual Colorado Police Canine Associations K9 challenge (Certification/Competition). Rocky's performance continues to make Darren proud to be his handler. He was 1st in area search, 2nd in building search and competitive enough in the other events to score well enough to earn him top dog over 38 teams.
