    LAKE OSWEGO – It is with great sadness that we report on the death of one of our two police K-9s, Ilkay “Kai” von Schmausenbuck. Over the past year, Kai underwent several surgeries to repair two hernias and two of his knees. Recently, it looked as if he would be able to recover enough to come back to work, but then his condition worsened. Kai was diagnosed with Degenerative Myelopathy, which is an incurable progressive disease in the spinal cord, and he was forced to retire two weeks ago. His handler, Officer Bryan McMahon, had hoped that Kai’s health would improve such that he would be able to live a happy life at home, but it continued to deteriorate. It became obvious that Kai’s quality of life had declined significantly and rapidly, and that his condition would only worsen. Ultimately, Kai was euthanized on Saturday, August 30, 2014, to prevent further suffering.
