4/23/2007 - 1/10/2020Hemi was the most amazing, loving, compassionate dog ever! Which is what lead him to be a great firehouse dog. His love touched so many people. Whether it was the brothers and sisters in the firehouse or just random strangers. He helped many people cope with illness or through a grieving process. He also cared for us so much when he had finally reached the final point where he couldn’t do it anymore, he went with a smile on his face that I can never forget even if I wanted to. I know his memory will live on in all of the people that he affected and helped.
All of this we learned after his passing, that’s when people really came out of the woodwork to give my wife and I their condolences. They also offered their condolences to the firefighters as well. In his final resting place will be a Maltese cross and his badge, which will never be worn again, it has been retired. So when you pass a fire station think of him sitting outside scanning people who walk by for treats!

Thank you so much Hemi for the memories...rest easy pal, we’ve got it from here...
