Sadly, K9 Lemon passed away over the weekend. Pasco Police posted his passing on their Facebook page:

It is with a heavy heart this morning that the Pasco Police Department regrets to announce the passing of K-9 Officer Lemon, due to a medical crisis. Lemon served our regional community with distinction for 8 years and was an integral member of our K-9 Unit. He was a large part of our original social media success and will always be remembered as #K9Lemon.

Our hearts and condolences go out to Officer Madsen and his family during this difficult time. We also wish to thank our amazing community for the outpouring of love and support during the last few weeks for Lemon and his family.

K9 Lemon's exploits won't be forgotten and his contributions over 8 years are legendary. He'll be missed.
