Boomer has been with the department for 10 years.

“Chalk makes it easy just to walk by and come support the community, and support local businesses. Doctor Dog is giving a percentage of their sales today, as is Pizza Studio, so we’re just trying to raise some money to get that new K-9 because it’s 100 percent privately funded,” said Aaron Hurvitz, organizer.
