USA TODAY US Edition - - MONEY -

The New York Po­lice Depart­ment gath­ered about 20 salut­ing of­fi­cers and held an avi­a­tion fly­over Mon­day to honor an Emer­gency Ser­vices K-9 just be­fore she died. The New York Daily News re­ports the 5-year-old blood­hound, An­gel, was di­ag­nosed with can­cer in Au­gust. In her time with the force, An­gel helped find miss­ing chil­dren and track down crime sus­pects. She re­ceived an Amer­i­can Ken­nel Club award for her ser­vice. Her hu­man part­ner, Of­fi­cer Manuel Orel­lana, fondly re­mem­bers An­gel mis­chie­vously emerg­ing from his Long Is­land gar­den with an eg­g­plant or cu­cum­ber in her mouth.
