The Canine Calendar was created in 2010 in honour of the late Cst Candy Anfield who passed away from cancer. And like all previous years, all proceeds from the calendar are divided equally and go directly to support BC Children’s Hospital Foundation and the BC Cancer Foundation. Since 2010, these two incredible charities have received over $500,000 from calendar sales.

This year you’ll also notice a few special canine/equine guests throughout the calendar. In addition to the 14 VPD Canine Unit dogs, VPD’s Justice Facility Dog Lucca and VPD’s Accredited Facility Dogs Zen and Sadie make an appearance, as does VPD Mounted Unit’s PH Nelson. Additionally, locally famous pups Mister Bentley and Gus Horvat also teamed up with VPD’s Canine Unit for a couple photos this time around.

Speaking of Gus Horvat, you’ll see that he appears alongside recently retired PSD Vader for their unique Canucks dressing room photo. The story behind this photo is that for the duration of his career, PSD Vader not only helped nab suspects on the streets, he was also one of the few VPD PSDs  trained to detect explosives. As a result, Vader could often been found  at Rogers Arena ensuring that the building, the fans, and the team were safe. It seemed only fitting that when Vader was inspecting Canucks Captain Bo Horvat’s hockey bag he discovered Gus popping out.

In addition to being appreciative to the Vancouver Canucks and the Horvat family, the Canine Unit would also like to thank Mister Bentley’s family, as well as the staff at the Vancouver Aquarium, Grouse Mountain and the London Pub for hosting photoshoots.

 

For the second year in a row, the Canine Unit teamed up with a very talented local photographer – Devin Manky – and an equally talented graphic designer – Yumi Simonson – to create this fun and charming calendar.

 

 

“This calendar is dedicated to the incredible dogs who are working, who have retired, and who have passed; the Guardians of the Night who perform tirelessly to protect the community, apprehend suspects and save lives. We also wish to honour all first responders and healthcare workers who have gone above and beyond despite being under extreme pressure in recent years. We see you and we thank you. Our leadership of the VPD Canine Calendar is something we are so proud of because we get to make a significant difference for two important local charities. Thank you!”

– VPD Constables Dennis Jesus, Chris Hudson and Allan Bridges
