By the numbers, Wood Village Nite Out, No. 2

For the next part of my Friday night fun, I'll share some of the K-9 demonstrations. I used Google to try to find out facts about each dog, using their photos to help me. Plus I remember that the deputy sheriff announcing called the Multnomah County Sheriff's Office dogs deputies and the Lake Oswego Police Department's dog officer. While I found photos and names for both of the Sheriff's dogs, I couldn't find one of the Lake Oswego dog. I did remember that his name started with a C, so I think he's Charger. The solid black dog is Varro and the dog with the fluffy coat is Ryker.

Here's each dog. I had a time deciding which ones to show of each one. Those I picked show the dogs doing different things to accomplish the task, find and stop the deputy playing the bad guy.

I can't remember what this was called, but I think it was for Varro to close-in on the deputy/bad guy and keep him stopped in his tracks. Varro stealthily approaches.

Wouldn't you like to know what he's saying to his partner?

The deputy/bad guy decided to move. Bad idea.

Ryker had stared down the deputy/bad guy and had him standing with his hands up right before this photo. You can tell that the deputy/bad guy has decided to step between the K9 deputy and his handler. Ryker reacted instantly.

Charger, Lake Oswego Police Department, takes off after a deputy/bad guy who was hiding in a refrigerator box, completely out of sight.

From that first photo of Charger, you can tell he's fast! The second time he came off the lead, he quickly caught the deputy/bad guy.

They are the most dedicated group of crime fighters you will find. It's fun to watch them do what they are trained to do. Nice shots.

All of these night out pictures are great. The dog handlers are very trusting.

Lynette, so glad you gave me the link to these photos, which was fabulous, by the way. You really caught the dogs in action. And goodness, what clever dogs they are - not like the ones I post on Riviera Dogs! Thanks a lot.

And yes, Garnier designed the Paris Opera House too.
