KOMO-TV reports (http://is.gd/R9Fa86 ) that local radio host Miles Montgomery was amazed to see the pooch get off the bus, without an owner, at a dog park last week.

Session participants will become certified in the Training for Intervention Procedures or TIPS program, the leading alcohol server training program in the country.
