That’s not the body of a person
That’s the body of a dog.
He worked as a K-9 with the Oklahoma City Police Department.
And was just given a full police burial.
The service included full police honors and a 21-gun salute.
That’s Sgt. Stark bending over to kiss Kye.
(Honestly just looking at that picture gets me choked up)
The second picture is Sgt Stark holding the folded American Flag that had draped Kye’s coffin.
You can see Sgt. Stark wiping away tears.
Sgt. Stark then shot and killed the suspect.
Kye died the next day in surgery.
"Without question, Kye's sacrifice saved the life of one of our officers. We will forever remain in your debt."
When an officer if paired with a K-9 it is intended to be a lifetime partnership. They trust each other completely.
All of the sudden you just forget about that bad day and think, 'Here's my partner, here's my buddy right here.
No matter what happens, he always loves me.' "
