First it was one seizure, then a second and a third. For two weeks Shane Stephenson watched as his friend's decline took its toll.

As Yarmouth, Maine's first police dog, Sultan chased suspects and sniffed out drugs across southern Maine, working with any department that needed him.
"It's been a struggle just to get him up on his feet," said Stephenson, the K-9 officer who took in Sultan as a pet. "There are some days when we’ve had to hold his head up so he can eat and drink."
Stephenson knew it was time.
To honor his life, police officers from around the state stood in formation outside the veterinary office, saluting Sultan as he was carried past them into the building.
