Saying goodbye to your dog is never easy, but it can be especially painful when your dog is also your coworker. After years of exemplary service, German Shepherd-Malinois K-9 Vilo from the Orem Police Department is leaving his post. It’s time to bid his handler, Quentin, farewell after three years of being his companion.
Vilo and Quentin had a difficult start.Quentin was not Vilo’s first handler, despite the fact that they had only known each other for three years. When Vilo and his new friend first met, he wasn’t exactly kind to him. When I picked him up, he was growling at me the entire time we were going home. Vilo was struggling to get used to his new handler, but neither he nor Quentin realized that a unique friendship was about to form. After some time, a lasting bond had been established.
Vilo and Quentin chemistry developed quickly. They were both police officers, after all, and had a structured daily plan.
On the missions, Vilo and Quentin became closer day every day, and soon they couldn’t live without one another.
He ends up becoming both your partner and brother.

It’s an extremely difficult choice you have to make… You have entire faith in him, and he has faith in you. You truly can’t understand it unless you’ve experienced it.
