🐾 🌈 😞Retired K9 Rox passed away this Monday surrounded by her loved ones.
This heart warming tribute was authored by Julie Baldwin with the Foothills K9 Association. Julie cared for and looked after Rox after she retired from the Placer County Sheriff’s Office.
Rest easy Rox, we’ll take it from here.
Retired PCSO K9 Rox EOW 8/19/2019
It is with heavy heart that we announce the passing of Retired K9 Rox. Rox went in to be checked as she wasn't feeling well. The tests revealed sad news that our sweet girl had advanced lung cancer.
She left the doctor and spent the day visiting her family and her first handler, eating a couple steaks, and playing with a nice loud squeaky toy (her favorite in retirement). When she was tired out and very relaxed at 2030 hours on 8/19/2019 at VCA Sacramento Veterinary Referral Center in the K9 Jag room, Retired K9 Roxx, surrounded by her family, went to sleep and crossed the rainbow 🌈 bridge to join her brother and sister K9s.
From her handler, “Her last sight as she passed was my face as I lay eyes to eyes with my forehead on hers. Her last feeling was the gentle touch of the hands of her family. The last sounds she heard was me telling her what a great dog she was, how much we loved her, how sorry we were she couldn’t stay longer and how proud we were to be her people. I thanked her for her service and for being a great friend. I said you can nap now. I love you. You’re a good dog. You’re a great dog.”
K9 Rox is taking her place as a K9 warrior. She can now Rest In Peace and keep overwatch of her fellow K9 warriors. Rest In Peace sweet girl. Rest and relax. We will take the watch from here.
Words can't describe the feelings of sadness and sorrow but also the joy of knowing she is safe and free of pain.
Rox started off life as a naughty puppy (just the way we like them) on 7/08/2007. She served Placer County Sheriff's Office with her handler Officer Brian Fish from early 2010 to late 2015 doing narcotics detection. She has enjoyed playing dress up, patrolling her property and gathering countless toys and balls ever since her retirement. She loved her people. Her people love her and miss her. … See MoreSee Less
