Modesto police said Kai was top dog with the WSPCA and won multiple awards in competition. In retirement, Kai lived with his handler, Officer Graves, who retired two years ago, resulting in the two spending every day together.
“All dogs go to heaven,” the department said in a Facebook post. “Until we meet again, good boy Kai, good boy.”
