Anyone who's lost a pet knows how heartbreaking it is. But for Sultan, the police dog, the sadness was accompanied by respect and gratitude for his many years of service. So it's no wonder that so many officers turned out to say good-bye when Sultan took his last ride.

I found this wonderful story from the Portland Press Herald and I just had to share it. Get your tissues, because you're going to need them. But, at the same time, the story will make you smile. This K-9 Officer with the Yarmouth Police Department was beloved by so many. And the respect for an animal that dedicated his life to serving the public is evident on the faces of the officers as they salute Sultan one last time.

Thank you, Sultan, for your service. Rest easy across the Rainbow Bridge.
