K9 Memorials

  • Kazaam

    Kazaam was my first SAR dog. He was very independent and only worked for himself. He was a member of CARDA and Los Angeles Search Dogs. His first find was a cadaver in the water when he was not even exposed to cadavers yet. He became a wonderful C1 dog with a couple of finds. Unfortunately, his career was cut short when he developed a sarcoma of his cervical neck. R.I.P my boy. You lived to work and I am missing you a lot!

  • Kirby

    Kirby was a reliable and dedicated search dog who approached the world with the confidence of someone who knows he is the best salesman in the room.  In an instant he would size up a situation and play it to his best advantage. Yet he always left his “customers” feeling as if they’d won the bargain.

    Kirby seemed to consider it some great joke that people would try to hide from him.  He delighted in showing them how easy they were to find.   He could search all day with little apparent need for water or rest and no loss of enthusiasm.  Bad weather just made things more fun for him.   He loved fast boat rides, figuring out which of his tricks would get perfect strangers to toss him a treat, carrying around fuzzy toys, sneaking up on the bed, and –most of all- searching.

  • Kody

    Kody was certified in wilderness, water, evidence and cadaver. He was cross trained in disaster. Kody was a very vocal Aussie, who probably holds a record for chewing up the most bringsals in training. His passion was building searching, but in the wilderness he was an “Awesome Aussie”, a little dog with a big drive. Kody was also in more demonstrations and hug-a-tree presentations than most dogs.


  • Koenig

    Koenig was my trusted companion on searches for ten years. He worked for his love of people and never failed me. He taught me some big lessons for life.
