The Richland, MS police department said goodbye on Wednesday to one of it's long-time K9 partners, Boy.

K9 Boy, 15, had served with the Richland Police Department for 13 years before suddenly passing away over the Easter weekend.

K9 Boy's handler, Detective John Harris, said of the passing of his partner, "I was dreading this day before I got here because I didn't want to relive it because I miss him. We've been through so much together."
