Figo, the canine partner of fallen Kentucky police officer Jason Ellis, paid his respects at the officer's funeral by placing a paw on his partner's casket. A photo of the moment, taken by photojournalist Jonathan Palmer, went viral over the weekend. [Via]
Officer Ellis was "shot in an apparent ambush in the early morning hours of May 25. Police believe the suspect laid debris on an exit ramp, and then shot Ellis when he got out of this car to remove the debris." Figo was not with him at the time he was killed. He has been retired and will live with Ellis' widow and their two sons.

All the blubs.

My condolences to Officer Ellis' colleagues, friends, and family, including his dog.
