Animal artist for over 15 years that decided to dedicate my life to painting portraits of working dog (K9) heroes. I only paint recognized military, contractor, SAR, police and PTSD Service dogs, not therapy dogs or family pets. Created the K9 Hero Portrait Project in March of 2013 while completing a portrait of MWD Gabe K153 SSD. During the completion of his portrait, I became aware of several K9's who were either killed in action or gravely injured, all within one week. Although I know working dogs are always faced with danger, it wasn't the events that drove me to create this project, it was the reactions of the handlers that were captured in photos and networked on the web. Each one was completely distraught at the loss or the injury of their K9 partner, who to them, was their family member. That's when I knew that these were the men and women I wanted to paint for. Each painting is donated to the handler, or, in the case of a retired working dog, to their family. Since the project is completely out of pocket, I help fund the program by having commemorative coins minted with the completed portrait on one side. The handler or family receives the first in the series, and the rest are sold to help fund the project and also be used to help donate to other working dog or military PTSD programs.
Can you fathom how sensitive your dog's nose is? Can you imagine being able to sniff out cancer cells? Or detect when someone's blood sugar drops, just by how it smells? Our dogs are noses with four legs, and one of the best ways to understand how they experience the world, is to understand their sense of smell.
Did you also know that there is a canine unemployment epidemic in the U.S.? That's right - your dog wants to work, and unless he's lucky, probably doesn't have much to think think about. The sport of K9 Nosework is one of the best ways to deepen your bond with your dog, provide him with a constructive outlet for his mental energy, and give him an opportunity to use his incredible sense of smell!
Dog behavior and training expert, Julie Forbes, talks with professional scent detection training and handler, and Certified Nosework Instructor, Miriam Rose about the wonderful world of K9 Nosework. Just search for K9 Nosework in your area and get your dog enrolled today! It is one the best gifts you can give your dog!

Project Paws Alive is a nationwide non-profit raising money to provide protective K9 equipment to Law Enforcement, Fire, Search & Rescue, and Military K-9s. We also provide specialized Pet Oxygen Recovery Mask kits to Fire, Rescue, and EMS in the US. Our mission is to provide combo stab/bullet-protective K9 vests, K9 first aid field trauma kits, K9 cooling vests, K9 heat alarms, and other vital K9 equipment to Law Enforcement, Fire, Search and Rescue, and Military K-9s throughout the US.
Project Paws Alive is an all volunteer 501c3 non-profit and does not get paid. Funds are raised by donations, sponsorships, and fundraisers. All monies go directly to purchasing equipment.
We exist because 92% of all K-9 units and agencies nationwide do not have the ability or funds needed to purchase this vital K9 equipment to protect their K9s. Many K9 units are run solely on donations.
K9 units are typically classified as "non-essential specialty units" nationwide; which means they receive little to no funding and cannot afford the high-dollar protective equipment that can save the lives of the K9s and, in most cases, can also save the officer's life.
Please join us in helping to "Protect The K9s Who Protect Us" nationwide. Consider making a tax-deductible donation or becoming a volunteer at http://ProjectPawsAlive.org/
Author, Adam David Russ and Officer Michael Serio of the Salt Lake City Police K9 Unit in Utah join us to talk about Russ’ book ,"Bloodhound in Blue: The True Tales of Police Dog JJ and His Two-Legged Partner" which highlights the life of 10-year-old K-9 JJ, who worked for the Salt Lake City Police Department with Officer Serio. The book takes you on an amazing journey as you learn how with JJ's ability to sniff out suspects and Serio's apprehension skills, the duo caught murderers, rapists, and drug dealers, often tracking them over fences and through crowded city blocks and dense forests. They also captured one of Utah's Most Wanted. Together the team changed the way police units operate today and both JJ and Officer Serio were awarded the Salt Lake City Officer of the Year Award, an award that Officer Serio has won twice; the only officer in state history to achieve this.
K9 Lakota served alongside Officer Travis Fox for less than four years but made remarkable achievements in his short career, among them more than 80 apprehensions, 28 drug seizures, six vehicle seizures, the recovery of stolen property, and the seizure of $60,000. K9 Lakota's career was ended prematurely en route to a home invasion call when Officer Fox and K9 Lakota ended up in a serious car accident. The accident split the car in two, ejecting both the officer and the dog from the car. K9 Lakota was not expected to live but his strong spirit fought on and after four surgeries (with more expected in his future), he is enjoying life in retirement. His work and his will to fight and live have shown his heroic side and he has brought people all over the world together for his cause. His story is now being used to help change laws for Law Enforcement Officer K9s so that they are better protected by their departments in case they are injured in the line of duty. K9 Lakota has been a true hero both in the line of duty and in retirement.

Jumping on their motorcycles from San Francisco to New York, Daniel and Doc speak with Veterans about post-war challenges that lead to suicide and the healing Veterans are finding in alternative forms of therapy such as sailing, pottery, education, service dogs and more.

Authors on the Air host Pam Stack is honored to welcome crime fiction master, author Robert Crais to the studio in a rare interview about his new book, THE PROMISE. In the mid-eighties, feeling constrained by the collaborative working requirements of Hollywood, Crais resigned from a lucrative position as a contract writer and television producer in order to pursue his lifelong dream of becoming a novelist. His first efforts proved unsuccessful, but upon the death of his father in 1985, Crais was inspired to create Elvis Cole, using elements of his own life as the basis of the story. The resulting novel, The Monkey’s Raincoat, won the Anthony and Macavity Awards and was nominated for the Edgar Award. It has since been selected as one of the 100 Favorite Mysteries of the Century by the Independent Mystery Booksellers Association. ELVIS AND JOE ARE BACK! This time they join forces with SUSPECT heroes Scott James and his K9 partner, Maggie, in RC's new novel, THE PROMISE.
