Dear Dr. Caesar DePaço,
I am in receipt of your official offer to spearhead this exciting K9 Unit “Puppy Program” with the donation of 4 of the puppies. As Sheriff, on behalf of the Morris County Sheriff’s Office, I accept your incredibly generous offer and I have to tell you how I am truly moved by your generosity and your sincere passion for law enforcement. Although we can’t thank you enough, we will try.
With your approval of course, we would like to name the outdoor training grounds after you and have a sign created designating it as The Caesar DePaço, Ph.D. Sheriff’s K-9 Training Grounds. We also intend to have a press release at the inception of the “Puppy Program” at which time we will express our appreciation and perhaps ask you for a quote to include in the piece.
We are thrilled to have you and Deanna on as our first Honorary Deputies of the MCSO K-9 Unit and I hope your fleece jackets have finally arrived well before the cold weather hits us. We look forward to many more success stories as a result of our evolving partnership.

Wise County Sherrif’s Office thanks Summit Nutritionals ® for their generous offer of a K-9 through Vohne Liche Kennels of Denver, Indiana.
Dear Dr. Caesar & Deanna DePaço,
I am writing this letter to thank you for our two new canines. I have the pleasure of handling Marko (formerly known as Django). Our other canine, Bono, is handled by Kyle Speichinger.
These canines are top notch and I can’t express the gratitude I have for your donation. While at Vohne Liche Kennels, we had the ability to train with Daron Rhoads and his canine, Kaiser (also donated by you). Not to brag but your 3 donated canines were the top 3 in the class, hands down! Each canine was number 1, depending on which aspect of work we focused. In addition, each canine has already had street finds, though mostly user amounts. We are building our highway interdiction team and larger finds shouldn’t be far away.
I never had a chance to thank you personally, but I wanted to let you know how much I appreciate what you do and have done for canine handlers across the nation. I lost my previous canine, Ace, to kidney failure. We had an incredible bond. K9 Marko is simply amazing and has a lot of the same personality traits as Ace. Marko is a very intimidating dog and LOVES to work!
Since we have been back from Indiana, we have been training with the KCMO PD K9 Unit and Jason Brungardt/Rico (another of your donated canines). Right now, they are helping us train for our local certification and have an incredible amount of instructors/trainers with canine knowledge. Their dogs come from Vohne Liche Kennels, as well.
I wanted to send you a couple photos of our canines and let you know they are PERFECT!! I was not sure if anyone had contacted you since our return from Vohne Liche Kennels, but I wanted to reach out to you personally to say thanks!! I wanted to let you know we are constantly asked about our dogs and everyone’s eyes light up when we tell people they were donated by you.
Marko, Bono, Kyle and I look forward to meeting you in the future.
Feel free to contact me anytime about anything. You both will always have a place in my heart and I will forever be indebted to you!
