Ruger’s Eulogy

News From Brian:

December 25, 2013 at 0520 hours, Canine Ruger ended his Tour of Duty.

Ruger was born August 1, 2005. He was 8 young years into life. Ruger died as the result of Cancer.

Ruger served as a Deputy and Ambassador for the Johnson County Sheriff’s Office Youth Assistance / Crime Prevention Programs. He served as a Search and Recovery Canine and Mascot his entire life. Ruger entertained in his first school at 7 months old.

Ruger captured the hearts of all those he met him with his uncanny ability to get a smile, a petting, and a hug from almost everyone.

This is the post that I sent out this morning:

“Ruger ended his Tour of Duty this morning at 0520 hours. He was a good and faithful officer who touched the hearts of many. He was not only my partner and companion, he was also my best friend. He passed in our squad in the parking lot of Briarcrest where we got him as a pup. It was a fitting farewell for my best bud.”

It is hard to say much more other than I will continue to miss him for the rest of my life, until the Lord blesses me and takes me home. The hole that has been left in my heart will never be filled. It is fitting that Ruger gave up his life on the same day we celebrate the birth of the One who became the Sacrifice for us. Jesus gave the ultimate sacrifice in service to God and us. He gave His life that we may live. What an awesome God and Savior we have. I was blessed by my friend’s love and service and thank God for the time we were able to share.

I love him as a family member, which he is, and will remember him as the servant and friend he was and always will be!

If you read this, thank you for taking the time. If you pray, please do so for Beth and me.

God Bless!
