Homeless man’s longtime companion dies

Cheeseburger Disney got it right –  all dogs do go to Heaven and Cheeseburger is now in paradise.

A loyal dog who lived a wandering life with a homeless man in Athens, the well-known Cheeseburger died this week. Plans are in the works to memorialize him on Saturday.

The 14-year-old canine died of a tumor, but lived longer than the veterinarian who provided free treatment thought he would, said Pauline Kilmer, who knew the pair.

“I really think the dog hung on trying to stay with (his human),” she said.

A memorial service for Cheeseburger will be held 2 p.m. Saturday at Covenant Presbyterian Church, 1065 Gaines School Rd., Athens. Cheeseburger and his owner, Johnny Veazey, were often seen walking the east side of Athens. Continue reading

Kane’s dog memorial needs public help to reach public view

I’m the mother of sculptor Mark McLean. He put all that work into the black basalt statue of Kane the police dog and donated it to the Sheriff’s Office about two years ago. We’re both curious to know what happened to the dog memorial statue. It’s not on display anywhere, is it? — Arlene Larson

The Kane dog memorial statue is still looking for a permanent display home, Mom. It’s projected that spring 2016 will see it done, and likely in the county courthouse courtyard, according to K-9 unit supervisor Mike McCabe, a commander with the Clark County Sheriff’s Office.

“The Kane statue that was donated by sculptor Mark (McLean) of Milwaukie (Ore.) is absolutely beautiful, and we are fortunate to have had such an amazing piece of art,” McCabe wrote in an email. “We have looked at multiple locations as possible future homes for the Kane statue.” Right now, the Kane statue is safely stored in the Sheriff’s Office warehouse, he said.

Some suggested places to station Kane:

• Out in the countryside, at the west precinct and public safety complex on Northeast 179th Street, next to the Clark County Fairgrounds.

• At the Clark County Jail after a future remodel.

• At a new Central Precinct building, should there ever be one. (Not anytime soon, we reported last summer.)

But most seem to agree that downtown Vancouver is where the public could enjoy and appreciate the Kane statue most, McCabe said. “We have identified a location within the courtyard between the Sheriff’s Office Headquarters and the Courthouse.”

There’s more to do than just find a location, though. McCabe said the grand plan is to create a whole K-9 memorial — which will have to be designed and approved by the sheriff, the county councilors and the county manager. It’ll have to be done with private contributions and donations, McCabe said, not public money… Continue reading

Sangamon County K-9 officer, dog injured in crash

A Sangamon County K-9 officer and his dog were injured Saturday in a two-vehicle collision at MacArthur Boulevard and Wabash Avenue.
Sheriff Wes Barr said Deputy Brian Stapleton was hurt in the crash, but his injuries were not life-threatening. Stapleton was taken by ambulance to Memorial Medical Center, where he was treated and released. His dog, Zaso, was taken to a local veterinarian for treatment of minor injuries.
Stapleton was responding to an emergency call about 11:40 a.m. when the crash occurred.
A Springfield police report said Stapleton was driving south on MacArthur with his red lights flashing and activated the siren in his vehicle as he approached the intersection. The deputy had a red light and entered the intersection when the traffic yielded the right of way.
As Stapleton proceeded through the intersection, his SUV collided with an eastbound vehicle on Wabash driven by Ruth Criswell, 77, of Edinburg, the Springfield report said. Continue reading

National Fire Dog Monument defaced with paint

In loving memorial of Chewie

Chewbacca “Chewie” Chiappone (aka Bubba, Hairy Monster and Chewers) came into my life over 16.5 years ago. He was rescued from a shelter in Columbus, OH at 8 weeks old. Since then, he has been with me, and even traveled with me to live abroad in Germany. Chewie was not a perfect dog; he certainly tore up things in his early years and suffered from separation anxiety.

But, he was always by your side, offering you his companionship and his love. Although nearly 50 pounds, Chewie often considered himself a lap dog and also slept most of his years in our bed. He had an insatiable love of salmon skin, sweet potatoes, pizza crusts and ice cream. He enjoyed running thru the forest, playing in snow… Continue
