From Doylestown (Wayne County, Ohio) Police Department:

Jet is our retired K9. She is a black German Shepherd and lives with her handler in the State St./Romig Rd. area. She managed to escape from her crate and out a partially open window/screen sometime Sunday evening. She is friendly, but by this time she is probably scared. Please share this post with anyone who may live, work, or travel in the State St./Romig Rd. area. If seen or located please do not attempt to capture, contact our dispatch at 330.658.2771, and ask to be connected to the officer on duty. A reward is being offered.

Please keep your eye out if you’re in the area.

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!

Are You Ready For Some Football?

If you’re not a regular reader, you might not know I live in Canton, Ohio, home of the Professional Football Hall of Fame. It’s so exciting every year to welcome the new and old enshrinees and host the first game of the pre-season.

These K-9 teams from Canton and surrounding areas have been at the stadium since early this morning, and most will work a minimum of 60 – 80 hours over the course of the week-long celebration.
