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?

K-9 Gradje

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.

From The Columbus Dispatch: The Ohio State’s Wexner Medical Center has launched a new therapy dog program. Many hospitals have therapy dogs to visit patients, although most such programs have been suspended due to COVID19. What makes Wexner’s program different is that these dogs are there for the caregivers, not the patients.

Four dogs, each of whom has a family member who works at Wexner, are currently involved, although they hope to expand the program to 12 dogs. The dogs and their handlers wander the halls and visit nursing units, giving hugs and comfort to employees who are experiencing unprecedented levels of stress due to the heavy workload associated with Corona on top of their normal duties.

If you’re thinking you’ve heard of the program before, you may be right if you are on Twitter. The photo of Shiloh (above) was posted by Dr. Shari Dunaway in November with the caption, “My hospital hired an employee whose only job is to go around saying hi to other employees while they work.”

Such a great idea at a much needed time.

Point of personal privilege: Congrats to Ohio State on making it to the national football championship! Go Bucks!

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
