"We are deeply saddeded and will miss
Buck the Bloodhound very, very much," said Gregg A. Miller president and founder of the U.S. based CTI-Neuticles Corporation in Buckner, MO.
Buck is featured on the company's website- and has received national and Worldwide publicity since the products introduction in 1995 and is considered the Worlds first canine co-inventor.
