Dozens of police officers gathered at the veterinary office to pay their respects and say goodbye to their friend, a retired K-9 called Sultan. Sultan was a veteran of the Yarmouth Police Department in Maine, and he had touched the hearts and lives of many officers in the force.
This video shows the last trip of 13-year-old Sultan before he was to be put down. Sultan had a happy life, but as of late, his health had been deteriorating, and it became clear to the officers what they needed to do.
In his honor, dozens of officers from all across southern Maine came and made the trip to the veterinary office and stood in formation, saluting Sultan as he was carried past them into the building. You can clearly see the pain in their eyes.
This is a very heart touching and beautiful story. Watch it in the video we have posted for you below. These stories always have me shedding a tear, so if you are so inclined, make sure you get yourself some tissues before hitting play.
