Cop’s Goodbye Letter To His Dead Dog Will Absolutely Crush You.
Losing a loved one is never easy. You usually end up thinking, "I wish I could spend some more time with you." There are things that remain unsaid and unexpressed, which will continue to remain in the same way, and you can do nothing but regret about it. It takes great courage to move on when a big piece from the jigsaw of your life is missing with no possibility of coming back.
Toby Caisey's friend and partner Bronson passed away on January 15th.
Officer Toby, who is a head K9 trainer, raised and trained Bronson since he was a 12-week-old puppy. He taught him about the duties of being a helpful and a well-trained police dog.
Apart from being a part of the BPD’s family, the canine was more than special for Officer Toby.
Branson was a true partner to Toby, be it professionally or personally. He was a patrol dog but also worked in explosives detection which made the Officer duly proud of his friend.
Before the canine became ill at the age of 9, the dynamic duo served for eight years together in the police department.
Branson’s condition had reached a point where his health showed no signs of improvement and was continuously deteriorating. They did everything in their power but nothing worked.
Although the dog’s death was a huge loss for the entire department, it was Officer Toby, who was hit the hardest.
The painful thought of saying goodbye to a dear friend is never on mind. But it is a reality of life that people have to accept irrespective of their emotions. Thus, he wrote a heart-touching letter as a farewell to Branson.
Bidding adieu to a companion who stayed by his side for eight consecutive years, he penned down a letter as a tribute to the canine’s beautiful soul.
He wrote, “On Sunday, January 15, 2017, I lost my K9 partner of eight years. Boston Police K9 Bronson passed away at home after a sudden illness. I raised him as a puppy from 12 weeks old and he was by my side until he passed away at the age of 9. Bronson was what I love to see in a police dog: high energy level, always ready to work, confident, good temperament and a bit of a punk.”
