During the Santiam SummerFest on Saturday (see also: the car show), the Stayton Police Department held a demonstration of its new narcotics K9, a chocolate lab named Brody.
Brody’s handler, Officer Paul Eves, showed the crowd how Brody does his job, and how he is rewarded with his favorite thing, a tennis ball. That dog loved that tennis ball, and dropped it in front of several people to get them to play with him.

I’ll have more photos from the SummerFest tomorrow.
Some of you know of my camera’s recent trip to the shop to have its shutter problems fixed. I am happy to report it came back home yesterday, and appears to be in full working order. I want to thank all the guest photographers who helped me fill the last two weeks with some awesome photos. I still have two or three yet to post, in fact. But since I took my camera out for a spin yesterday, I figured I’d post one of the photos I took.
Well, four photos, actually. I couldn’t decide on just one. This dog was having the time of his life chasing after a rather large stick in water beside the Jordan Bridge at Pioneer Park. Did you know it’s hard to get a clear photo of a dog splashing around in the water? It is. I gave it my best shot, though.

I popped by to visit with Theresa at her shop, D’-Tail Pet Grooming on the W. Washington St. yesterday, and took some photos while I was there. I would be an idiot to pass up a chance to get photos of adorable dogs. Click on each of the thumbnails below to see them larger. Thanks to Theresa for once again letting me take pictures.
I popped by D’Tail Pet Grooming (visit them on Facebook) near the west end of Washington St. the other day, and took pictures of adorable animals. The cat is Milo, the official shop cat. The rest of the photos are of dogs — some belonging to the owner, Theresa Smith, and the rest belong to clients.
Thanks to Theresa for letting me take pictures at her shop once again.
Guest photographer Jon Goodman is worried:
I am always unnerved when I look out and see my customers car with the driving dog in it. It is so calm and just looks like it’s ready to drive as soon as his owner gets back.
While I understand the concern, Jon, I really wouldn’t worry about it. The dalmatian seems to have a pretty good view over the dash, and there are glasses if it has any trouble seeing. Just pop the seat belt on, and it should be good to go.
I stopped by D’Tail Pet Grooming yesterday to give owner Theresa Smith the full-resolution versions of the photos I took at the dog wash benefit on Saturday. While I was there, I had to take pictures of the various cute doggies which were there. I love dogs.
So click on the thumbnails below to see them bigger, because who can resist cute? I can’t, and I bet you can’t, either.
Yesterday was filled with wet dogs, awesome people, and good food, all to help raise money for a good cause. Theresa Smith held the fundraiser at her shop, D’Tail Pet Grooming, to help Stayton’s Steven Lulay, who is in need of a heart transplant. Judging by the number of people who were at the benefit when I was there (it was packed), I’d say it went very well.
If you’re interested in helping financially to help Steven get his transplant, please visit his page at gofundme.com. He could really use your support.
I’ve uploaded a ton of photos from the benefit, so click on each thumbnail below to see them larger:
