It's with a very very heavy heart that I have to say this... Retired K9 Hans passed a short time ago after over a year long battle with multiple myeloma cancer. This has to be the hardest thing that I have done. I knew this day was coming, but certainly was not ready for it tonight. This picture was taken a couple a minutes before Hans crossed over the rainbow bridge. I'm going to miss you so much Hans.
R.I.P K9 Hans. Badge #41.
