DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - After more than 10 years of bomb detection and protecting Daytona Beach International Airport, it was time for Yenky, K-9 officer, to turn in his badge in favor of retirement. 

Yenky and his partner, Senior Deputy Joe Durney, were recently honored at the airport to celebrate Yenky's retirement. 

Yenky, a 10-year-old male German shepherd, lives with Deputy Durney and his family. Galt is the deputy's new K-9 partner and he has big pawprints to fill.

Congratulations Yenky and Senior Deputy Durney on a great job for the past decade.
