Helping Canine Cops and Norwood's Dog Days of Summer

You might not know this, but lots of towns and cities across the US do not have the dollars to outfit their canine cops with the gear they need to protect them. But fear not! There is an organization called Vested Interest which raises money to buy these doggies the stuff they need.

And you can help! Just click here and you can make a donation. You can even buy a cool 2013 Dog Officer action calendar.

Officer Labradoink, I presume?

Grab this picture and play along

Day 6 - Treat Time

Here's idiot PeeWee doing his best baby bird impersonation for a smushed blueberry. EEEEP EEEEP!

Luckily for me, my jaws of doom have a special hinge on them just like an anaconda.
This affords me the ability to swallow whole even the most relentlessly huge noms.

Bring it on!

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

P.S. I know that with the whole Dog Days of Summer thing we are posting a lot more frequently than usual so don't anybody get agitated about leaving comments. Just enjoy the photos.

We are most impressed with the size of your Relentlessly Huge mouth! The better to eat all that kibble with.

Your friends,

My human brudder's K-9 partner, Chase, in Michigan has a vest....butt what about the pawts not covered by the vest? Maybe these guys should wear FULL BODY ARMOUR! Just sayin!

Hey Mango!
Wow, those official K9 cop pooches are so awesome! They deserve all the love and support we can give them. What dedication.
BTW: I'm totally impressed (and surprised) by the lack of slobber in those two toothie pix! BWAR HAR HAR.
Grr and Woof,
Sarge, COP

Hey Mango, I think that canine cop is actually a black shepherd! But a great cause nevertheless. We recently had some intense police action not too far from our house where the canine cops were instrumental in flushing out a suspected burglar. I admire all our dogs in uniform... Ann TBL

Au and Target said...

We've only got a few dogs here and we've no idea what sort of gear they get or need. Interesting post!

Love that Anaconda gap, Mango. It should be filled with treats.

A Wonderful Dogs Life said...

How do you keep your teeth so pearly white? Does your Momma brush them, do you get special chewies?

I'm guessing that treat was gone in the blink of an eye.


houndstooth said...

We hadn't heard about Vested Interest, but what a cool idea!

I had a good giggle over Dexter's picture and then I saw yours. Oh Mango! I'll have nightmares now.



Hi there N,
I just wanted to drop by and say how much I admire your resilience in 'doing good' in blogland. You are a special person indeed.(I know how much time it takes to invest in this...thank you!)
Sending you a big (((Hug)))

Oh we will most definitely make a donation to help police dogs. They are true heroes. In fact, a few weeks ago my human sissy met a real life police dog. They brought him to her camp along with a couple of firemen, policemen. When she got home, she told me all about him and then she said "Why aren't you a police dog?" Well, I had to tell her that although the local police force BEGGED me to join the force, I chose my family over the call of duty. Bawhahahahah! This is a true story.

Your pal, Pip
