Lord of Dogtown
By Carolyn Carlson
During Blaze's eight-year career, he sniffed out more than 3,000 pounds of marijuana, 500 pounds of cocaine, 60 pounds of meth, 50 pounds of heroin, and 5,000 OxyContin and ecstasy pills for metro area law enforcement departments. Blaze, a canine with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency, was honored with a proclamation and a large rawhide bone at the Monday, March 19 meeting. “I don’t think we have given out a bone before,” said Council President Trudy Jones, while Blaze and his handler Sgt. Jeremy Bassett received hand and paw shakes.
