Officer Moody's Funeral/Memorial

The service was beautiful. Susan Moody spoke, and I was amazed by how strong she is. She made sure Brad Moody lives on, his heart is beating in another person: one last chance for him to take care of another person.

I am glad Richmond PD is giving Rico to Susan and her girls. When she rubbed his head before leaving the stage he went into "Happy Mode", did a full body wag, and took a step after her before the handler he was with tugged his leash.

I really hate how he died, and agree with what Smith posted on the subject: Another Very Bad Day .

It's been a very long day, and a big thank you to Snake and Moose for being great guys tonight.

I would have cried when Rico went after her....So glad the PD is giving Rico to the family.
And what a blessing to have his heart beating in another person. What a touching gift to give - even in death he is still helping others.

I can't stop crying and I didn't even know the family. I wish them healing and all the blessings and comfort possible. So glad the dog is going home with the family.
