Name that darn (RCMP) dog

  • Feb. 11, 2011 7:00 p.m.

Last year the RCMP sought a name beginning with the letter ‘H’ for six foals for their ‘Name the Foal Contest’. After sifting through entries from all across Canada the foals were proudly named Honour (the only BC entry to win), Hunter, Hansum, Happy, Hero and Hancuf. This year the RCMP are inviting children from Haida Gwaii to participate in the ‘Name the Puppy Contest’. There are ten German Shepherd puppies, that were born at the Police Dog Service Training Centre in Innisfail Alberta, that need names beginning with the letter “D”. To enter, the contestants must be under the age of 16, and live in Canada. The name must begin with “D”, be one or two syllables long and a maximum nine letters in length. The name can be for either a male or female puppy and the entries should be submitted on a postcard that has the contestants name, age, address, telephone number. All contestants can submit only one name and this must be done by Monday, March 7.Postcards can be mailed to ATTN: “Name the Puppy Contest” Police Dog Service Training Centre Box 6120 Innisfail, Alberta T4G 1S8. Prizes and contest winners will be announced on Monday, April 4. Good luck to all!
