I think sometimes we forget the dogs that go into danger without question.
Thank you Simone, for this opportunity to remember a fallen hero.

I am glad for one thing, that Sirius was killed instantly, for Officer Dave Lim's sake. Officer Sim must have goen through 4 months of shear hell, wondering how his partner faired. I hope he found peace. RIP Sirius.

Dogs all too often must suffer for the cruel actions of human beings.

Another little layer of sorrow that happened on that terrible day. Good boy, Sirius. I hope you are running free in a safer place than this.

I feel sad when animals suffer for the problems caused by humans, So many have died caught in the crossfire, sometimes literally.

The saying "All gave some, some gave all" applies to dog heroes as well. Military dogs, rescue dogs, and police dogs are heroes that suffer physical and emotional injuries alongside their human companions. May we never forget that.

Another moving example how what we can learn from animals by caring for and living in harmony with them is far more lasting and valuable than what we gain from harming them. Animals teach us how to be better humans.
