Northern Calif. officer and K9 retiring together

By Tom Lochner
The Contra Costa Times

WALNUT CREEK, Calif. San Pablo has lost its popular K-9 Nero to a disabling illness and shortly will also lose the services of his human partner, police Officer Shawn Ray, who is struggling to recover from injuries he suffered in an accident that nearly killed him.

Nero, 4, a Belgian Malinois, was retired in late May after suffering kidney failure, ostensibly the result of an autoimmune disease. But some San Pablo officials, including Ray and Mayor Paul Morris, believe Nero was poisoned after eating dog food contaminated with the industrial chemical melamine, which they believe triggered an autoimmune reaction.
