Het gebed van de hond 
 Ho mijn meester, 
 Kies mij als vriend, 
 en ik zal van al je vrienden de trouwste zijn. 
 Geef mij een thuis, 
 en ik zal de beste bewaker zijn. 
 Geef mij een naam, 
 en ik wil nooit nog een andere. 
Geef mij een bevel, 
 en ik zal je gehoorzamen. 
 Geef mij voedsel, 
 en je zult nooit ontgoocheld zijn. 
 Geef mij een liefkozing, 
 en ik zal gelukkig zijn. 
 Geef mij uw affectie, 
 en ik zal je mijn leven geven

Xanthos (above as a puppy) was born on November 3, 1998.  He died on Octobre 28, 2000 because he had an obstruction in his stomach. Xanthos was in education of Drugs.  He did very well.  It's a great loss for our family because Xanthos was our family dog.  Max, our other dog, misses his friend too.  In Belgium we speak Dutch, French and German.  In this part of the country we speak Dutch.

"Max & Xanthos"

Cards printed in Dutch & English were air mailed to Wim. 

Thank you very much for putting Xanthos in the In Memoriam of K-9.  A lot of people already have visited the page. 
Today we bought a new German Shepherd. His name is Falco and he is 6 months old. We will certainly not forget about Xanthos, 
because no dog can replace him. Tomorrow I'm going with the dogs on a training camp for four days. 
My function is police officer in the
police department of Diest Belgium,  mostly I go on patrol with Max.
