Caber the Trauma Dog
It's not often that the featured guest at a symposium falls asleep at his own keynote speech and later licks the host of a radio program on which he is a guest...But then again, it's also not often that a dog stands at the centre of National Victims of Crime Awareness Week's annual gathering.
Caber, though, is no ordinary dog. He is Canada's first trauma K9, a golden lab who works with Delta, B.C.'s police force to comfort victims of crime and trauma. Caber slept under our studio table while his handler, co-ordinator of Delta Police Victim Services Kim Gramlich, told us about his job.
