Here's a clip about the Karelian Bear Dog who helped to track a bear that was on the loose in Tacoma. Karelian Bear Dogs are a type of hunting dog from Finland, where they typically hunt moose and elk.
This weekend, the Seattle Kennel Club is hosting agility trials. That sounds pretty exciting-- I've only ever seen agility competitions on the Animal Planet channel! It takes a lot of training and dedication to be able to compete in agility, and I have a lot of respect for the dogs and owners who can handle it.
Also this weekend is Peace Out at Merrill Gardens--the Tacoma Humane Society is going to be there with some adoptable puppies, spreading the word about some of the services that they offer to the community.
Have a good weekend, everyone!
