There were tears, stories and other recognition of the first police dog the Crossville Police Department lost in the line of duty. Lt. Riden, who had worked with Cain for some time received hugs and handshakes and there was a table full of items the public had created to commemorate the animal's sacrifice.
The receiving line included all ages.
A police honor guard for Cain's ashes.
Many visitors wore commemorative shirts.
A display provided by a company in
Georgia after they heard about the
dog became a giant sympathy card.
The popular painted rocks filled a table
with other remembrances in the lobby.
Even the UT Veterinary Medical Clinic
that tried to save Cain sent flowers.
