Yesterday, my family and I got news that shook our world. My husband is a K9 Explosive Detector for the state police. He had back surgery about a month ago and was told to keep his dog in the academy kennels three hours away from our home, where he would be cared for by the cadets and other troopers. This was done for liability reasons. Mike was to go get him next week. Our phone rang yesterday morning with horrific news. Iccar was found unresponsive in his kennel and died within the hour. We couldn't be there with him. This came as a complete shock to everyone. He was in perfect health and was in fantastic shape. We will be getting the final necropsy reports soon. Please keep all of us, especially my husband in your prayers. That was his partner and true buddy. My husband lost his brother and father with a matter of years and has no other siblings, so Iccar was a little fill to that void. He doesn't have him now. He does, however, have a wonderful family that has so much love for him. My heart just aches and the tears keep coming. Please keep us in your prayers.
Iccar, thank you for being a part of our family. We loved you so much and miss you beyond belief. I will miss kissing your soft ears and cuddling you in bed. Thank you for being by my husband's side and serving our state. You are and will be missed forever.
