On October 20th, several search dog handlers, search volunteers, and K9 teams from AST and APD got together at the Alaska SAR Dog Memorial. On this 10 year anniversary of the Memorial, 25 dogs were recognized. Dog tags were created for each dog and all folks present participated by tying a tag and yellow ribbon to the tree. The dog tags will stay on the tree until sometime after the new year.

Notably, half a dozen AST and APD K9 teams came to recognize the efforts of the volunteer handlers and their search dog companions. It was very generous and the Alaska State Troopers gave a commendation recognizing the efforts of search dogs and their handlers across the state.
