Lando was remembered Friday at a memorial service attended by Villella, almost 60 mourners and Lando's owner/handler, Officer Gabrielle Guerra.
Tables adorned with Lando's leash, his vest, photos, awards and memorabilia encircled a crowd inside a meeting room at the Harker Heights Police Department. Outside everyone gathered around a memorial stone that read "Forever and always a guardian of the night."
Lando, a community icon and award-winning detector dog, died June 28 in his sleep at Guerra's home. He served more than 10 years with HHPD. He died two days before his 13th birthday and a few weeks before his July 14 retirement. Source: Killeen Daily Herald
It looks like Lando made quite an impact at HHPD.
