Default Rocco

I am not sure if anyone on here was following the story of Rocco the Pittsburgh K9. He was doing ok from operations, but recently passed away. Rest in peace Officer Rocco http://www.wtae.com/news/local/alleg...u/-/index.html Mod can move this if this is the wrong place. If so I am sorry.

I'm from Pittsburgh, saw it on the news yesterday and I am saddened to hear that he didn't make it.

I am about 20 minutes north from Pittsburgh. I actually was shocked when I heard this. The last I heard earlier today, was Rocco was doing much better and they had the bleeding stopped.

Born and Raised in the Steel City...Very sad. I had the opportunity to be involved with a training where I got to briefly meet his handler, who is an amazing person. My heart goes out to him and every part of me wants to see the thing that did this rot somewhere.

The Mayor has said there will be full honors for Rocco; the biggest thing I love about PA and Pittsburgh in general is that it's such a dog friendly place.

There's a video on this page that shows him getting saluted on his way from the vet's office: Pittsburgh police dog Rocco dies - Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

I cried my eyes out and hugged my dogs as hard as they'd let me. The bagpipes are rough to listen to.

RIP Rocco. There's a huge bite sleeve and bones waiting for you across the bridge.
