Loyal and brave K-9 Officer Hunter served a decade with his human partner Michael D'Aresta at the Middletown Police Department in Connecticut.
Hunter's time on the force came to a sudden stop when he was diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer.
"K9 Hunter has been ill for that past several days and when tests were conducted they revealed that K9 Hunter has a very aggressive form of Liver cancer. They unfortunately recommended that he be euthanized," the Middletown Police Department wrote in a Facebook post.
The diagnosis was heartbreaking for everyone on the force, particularly Hunter's partner Michael D'Aresta, who had formed such a special bond with his canine friend and was faced with the heartbreaking decision to put Hunter to sleep.
D'Aresta carried the dog in his arms as he received one last salute from his fellow officers. D'Aresta and the rest of the police department wanted the pup to know just how much they love and care for him on his last day on earth.
Tesla is releasing a new feature called "Dog Mode" that will aim to keep pets safe, cool and comfortable while left unattended in the vehicle.
The electric car maker introduced "Dog Mode" via Twitter Wednesday night. Tesla says that activating "Dog Mode" results in "setting a cabin temperature to keep your dog comfortable while letting passersby know they don't need to worry."
The average dog spends a whopping 14 hours per day sleeping. In fact, dogs spend more than half their lives dozing off. As a pet owner, it's important to give your dog a comfortable bed of their own where they can sleep at night and nap throughout the day. And one of the most comfortable beds you can get your furry friend is a memory foam orthopedic dog bed.
