The Portland, Oregon Police Bureau’s Canine Unit hosted an open house
and dedication ceremony for the newly created Canine Memorial, located
in front of the Canine Unit office and public safety building at 4735 East
Burnside Street, formerly Southeast Precinct. 

The memorial project was made possible through countless hours of 
work by local artist Richard A. Moore III, as well as many donors, such
as the Portland Police Historical Society and Adventist Credit Union,
following the tragic shooting death of Portland Police K-9 Mick (above)
in 2014.

Ash Wednesday, a day of fasting, is the first day of Lent in Western
Christianity
and occurs 46 days before Easter and can fall as early as
February 4 or as late as March 10. Ash Wednesday is observed by many
Western Christians, including Anglicans, Lutherans, Methodists, Roman
Catholics and
Presbyterians

Ash Wednesday derives its name from the practice of blessing ashes made
from palm branches blessed on the previous year’s Palm Sunday, and
placing them on the heads of participants.
