Chil­dren in­vited to sug­gest names for RCMP pup­pies

Truro Daily News - - COMMUNITY - Lynn.cur­[email protected]­daily.com @truro­daily

There are 13 Ger­man shep­herd pup­pies wait­ing for names.

The pups were born at the Po­lice Dog Ser­vice Train­ing Cen­tre (PDSTC) in In­n­is­fail, Alta., and could be ca­nine RCMP mem­bers in the fu­ture.

Chil­dren, aged four to 14, can en­ter a con­test to help name the an­i­mals and win prizes. Names must be­gin with the let­ter "N," have no more than nine let­ters, and can be one or two syl­la­bles.

Win­ning names, cho­sen by PDSTC staff, will be an­nounced April 29 on the RCMP web­site and so­cial me­dia. A draw will de­cide the win­ning en­try if a cho­sen name is sub­mit­ted more than once.

Win­ners will re­ceive a lam­i­nated 8-in. by 10-in. photo of the pup they named, a plush dog named Jus­tice and an RCMP wa­ter bot­tle.

Con­tes­tants must live in Canada and may only en­ter once. Sub­mis­sions must be re­ceived by Wed­nes­day, March 25.

En­tries should in­clude the child’s name, ad­dress, and phone num­ber, along with the sug­gested puppy name, and can be sent on­line at http://www. rcmp-grc.gc.ca/en/de­pot/namethe-puppy-con­test or by post to
