    R.I.P. Cooper and God Bless your handler! That POS should be force fed antifreeze until his stomach bursts! We had some POS sneak into a K9 Handler's back yard in the neighboring county a month ago and took the latch off the dog's kennel. The dog got out and was found the next evening, killed after being struck by a vehicle.
