Dozer Boy and his best friend Kyera were two beloved family dogs belonging to the Dougherty family. The family had just moved to Firestone along with their 7-year-old dogs Dozer Boy a Chocolate Lab and Kyera a German Sheppard. The family thought it would be a safe place to raise a family.

One morning on August 8, 2011 both dogs were let out into their backyard to do their normal business. The wife, Telsa Dougherty, called them in 20 minutes later but they didn't come. She then ran downstairs out into the backyard and found that both Dozer Boy and Kyera were suddenly dead.

The family was horrified by the discovery and both dogs were taken to a local animal hospital for a necropsy but when nothing suspicious was found in Dozer Boy's stomach, they took Kyera to experts at Colorado State University. Meat was found in the esophagus of Kyera and when it was tested it was found that it was laced with poison. Someone had thrown meat into the backyard to poison both of them and take their lives. The suspect has not been caught.

Dozer Boy was a persistent shadow who would follow family members as they left the room and acted more like a human than a dog. Travis Dougherty and Telsa rescued Dozer Boy from the Weld County Humane Society.

"He's been my best friend since then" said Travis Dougherty. "They were great together."

Dozer Boy and Kyera were best of friends and they loved each other so much. They are always loved and missed by their family.
