Blitz was the Overland Park (KS) Police Department's first canine officer. He was the trusted partner of Detective Bob Valencia for many years.
Blitz loved fast food. Once Bob spent his last $5 on an Arby's Roast Beef sandwich and when Bob was out of the car, Blitz decided to help himself.
He was 14 years old at the time of his death. The Overland Park Police Department buried him in the front of the station.

A Police Dog's Prayer
Oh Almighty God,
whose great power and eternal
wisdom embraces the universe,
watch over my handler while I sleep.
Protect my handler from harm
while I am unable to do so.
I pray, help keep our streets and homes
safe while my handler and I rest.
I ask for Your loving care because
my handler's duty is dangerous.
Grant my handler Your unending strength
and courage in our daily assignments.
protect my brave handler,
grant Your almighty protection,
unite my handler safely with the family
after the tour of duty has ended.
I ask nothing for myself.
