The Texarkana Texas Police Department said goodbye to a very special dog this past weekend as K9 Officer Ide passed away. Ide worked with the police department starting back in 2006 until he was retired in 2012.

From the Texarkana, Texas Police Department's Facebook page:

We are sad to share with you that K9 Ide, who was a little over twelve years old, passed away of natural causes on Saturday. He worked from 2006 until he was medically retired in 2012 due to a training injury. During his career with us, he worked with Officers Jeremy Sutton and Bo Carter.

Rest In Peace, Ide. Rest In Peace

It's never easy to say goodbye to our loyal friends. Our thoughts are with the officers that worked and cared for Ide and the entire Texarkana Texas Police Department.
