K-9 "Ranger"

March 8 1994 – December 23 2004



“Ranger” is gone.  With his passing, I have lost a part of my soul.  He was truly a wonderful friend and partner.  He left much to remember him by. His journal is filled with letters from grateful families and thank you’s from countless children and adults.  My wall is decorated with awards, certificates, ribbons, and medals to attest to his life’s work.   But none will make up for the loss of his silken head under my hand each day. My world is diminished   I will miss him.



  Faithful Friend


I lost a faithful friend this night,

A gentle giant of noble soul.

Whose gone now from my sight.


This morn, you gave no gentle gaze,

No nudge, no whine, no bark.

No more your form will raise.


You loved and worked and played,

You found those lost

And found where loved ones laid.


My eyes are filled with tears,

But in my heart, there’s no regret,

Just gratitude for given years.


Thank God for sharing you, my friend.

You brought such joy to life,

I grieve your journey’s end.


Now lay your great head on God’s knee.

Be still, be patient, my faithful friend

And wait in His love for me.
