(COLUMBUS) - Officers with the Columbus Police Department said their final goodbyes to a beloved K-9 officer Monday.
Blitz has been battling cancer for two years and the painful decision was made to have him euthanized.
Blitz served the department for nearly five years before retiring in 2012.
A small crowd gathered outside the veterinarian's office to say farewell. Blitz and his handler took one more proud, but painful walk together.
A memorial Facebook page for Blitz has been set up
