Bulldog Philanthropist Builds Local Playground
At a ribbon-cutting ceremony yesterday, the city’s newest playground was opened to the public after two-months of construction.  The playground was funded by Boss, a successful French Bulldog from Kalamazoo, MI, who attended the ceremony and had the inaugural run on the playground’s centerpiece, a 20-foot stainless steel slide.
“A lot of people think he did this because he loves children,” said a source familiar with Boss’ line of thinking, “but really, he just loves slides.”

Jade’s former service dog Katie developed bone cancer and had to be put to sleep in November of 2011, right around the time Jade was due to graduate from college. Jade had hoped to walk across the graduation stage with Katie, without whom it would be nearly impossible to stand.
A week after putting Katie to sleep, Jade said that life without a Dane was not an option, and appeared at the Service Dog Project’s farm with her mother. They were both determined to find another match for Jade. SDP accepted the challenge - Jade had only a week before flying back to college for graduation, and she hoped to walk across the stage with her new dog in front of 3000 people.
The only dog that was anywhere near trained enough at SDP was a breeding female house dog named Pistol. SDP put Pistol through the ADI public access test immediately with no problem. Jade and Pistol bonded right away. Here is Jade’s account of her college graduation with Pistol:
“Pistol could not have done better at graduation! We made it up and down the stage slowly but surely without any issue. There were over 3000 people there and everyone there cheered for us. The announcer even announced her name with mine as we walked across the stage. On the way out we went down a long hall lined with 100 faculty members cheering and ringing cowbells. She was again unfazed - that may have been the most impressive part.”

Local Dog Falls Asleep Mid-Play
An area dog named Murphy fell asleep in the middle of playing today, according to multiple reports.  Apparently, Murphy was playing fetch with and chewing a rubber bone when all of a sudden he conked out on the grass.
“He was totally tuckered out,” said one eye witness.  ”He was running around like a crazy puppy one minute, then sleeping soundly the next.”
