Longtime East Texas K9 Retires

Ray Bowman and his dog Roy are more than just best friends, they are partners. They worked all over Cherokee County together for nearly five years. Although Roy's working days are over, Ray and Roy still can't be torn apart. Ray says he is no longer a canine handler. That job now belongs to another deputy by the name of Martin Peppin who has a new dog named Sarah.
