And that you Cpl. Brian Daniels.”

The Churchville Veterinary Clinic also mourned the loss of K9 Beny, who they called “one of our most beloved K9 dogs.”

“K9 Beny will be missed greatly by all the doctors and staff of the Churchville Veterinary Clinic,” the clinic said in a Facebook post.

“Our hearts go out to Cpl. Daniels, his family, and his fellow officers. We cannot thank you enough for all that you do to keep our families and communities safe,” the post read.
