The Royal Canadian Mounted Police is the Canadian national police service and an agency of the Ministry of Public Safety Canada.
The RCMP is unique in the world since it is a national, federal, provincial and municipal policing body. They provide a total federal policing service to all Canadians and policing services under contract to the three territories, eight provinces (except Ontario and Quebec), more than 200 municipalities, 165 Aboriginal communities, three international airports and numerous smaller airports.
Originally called the North-West Mounted Police, the Force gained fame in its battles against outlaws and whiskey traders, its fair handling of the Native peoples, and its control of the wild Klondike Gold Rush. In 1904, their achievements received recognition when King Edward VII granted the Force the prefix "Royal" and it became the Royal Northwest Mounted Police (RNWMP).
In February 1920, the Mounted Police absorbed the Dominion Police, which had carried out federal policing in eastern Canada. Headquarters was moved from Regina to Ottawa and the Force became responsible for enforcement of federal laws from the Atlantic to the Pacific. In keeping with its new role, it was renamed the Royal Canadian Mounted Police...

Before the emergence of the internet, the only people who had easy access to personal information databases were licensed private investigators, police detectives, and the federal government. The internet has changed all that.
Today, if you want to research someone, you can do it yourself from the comfort of your own home, and for a fraction of the cost of hiring a live private investigator. If you want to check someone out, you may be able to find out if they've ever declared bankruptcy, gotten married, filed for divorce, been arrested or sued. You may be able to find out what kinds of houses, boats, and cars they own, and what kind of credit card debts they have. You may even be able to get unlisted cell phone numbers and other "hidden" information.

==>> How To Switch To The Raw Food Diet For Dogs Who Are Picky Eaters
To get some dogs to switch to a raw food diet will challenge your creativity. But you know you need to persevere because it’s for the good of your dog. Fortunately, there are some tips out there that will help you help your dog adjust to this new and healthier diet.
Here are 7 tips from Maggie Rhines' “Going Rawr! Dog Lover's Compendium” to help you encourage your pick eater onto raw food:
1. Adjust your feeding schedule.
Some dogs are more open to trying new food when they are on a set feeding schedule. Other than being used to being fed and eating at a certain time, you are also certain that they are hungry by the time you give them food.
Another way to improve your dog’s reception of raw food is to schedule his feeding after a vigorous routine activity – say after his morning walk or a jog around the block. A good run will help him work up an appetite.
2. Regulate how much food your dog is getting.
If your problem is getting your dog to finish his serving of food, you may want to re-examine how much food you are actually giving him. It may be too much for him to consume.
One way to help your dog finish his food and finish it quickly is to set a certain amount of time for him to eat. Say you only give him 20 minutes to finish his food. After that, take away his food bowl. That way, he’ll be encouraged to eat his food and to finish it quickly.
Another reason why you want to do this is because with a raw food diet, you don’t want to leave food lying around. This will allow bacteria to grow on your dog’s food, which could cause stomach upset when your dog consumes the contaminated food.
3. Lay off on the treats
If your dog is often disinterested in his food, it could be time to examine what food your dog is getting outside of his meals. Does he get to eat when he comes to you while you are preparing his food? What about when the family sits down for dinner, does he get a bite as well?
Treats are meant to be rewards for good behavior and should not be something you routinely give your pet every time. That will turn treats into snacks, which will only spoil your dog’s appetite during meal time. So if your dog seems full during meal times, check if unscheduled snacking could be to blame.
4. Variety is the spice of life
When feeding your dog raw food, variety is key to keeping him interested. If you are feeding him the same kind of food all the time, it won’t be a surprise if there comes a time when he’s just not that interested in the same old thing.
Planning a varied meal doesn’t have to be complicated. You can rotate his meals every 3 days. Serve different kinds of meat or different kinds of fruits and vegetables to keep him excited during meal times.
5. Make it fun
Just like with little kids, sometimes dogs need a little stimulation to encourage them to try and to eat new food. You can experiment with various activities and different kinds of toys that dispense food. Or you can take his food (for example, raw meaty bones or whole carcasses) and dangle it a bit in front of him. That could work to get his attention to try the new food.
6. Maybe he’s not feeling well
When you’ve tried different methods and your dog is still not eating, it could be a sign that your dog is not feeling well. If his lack of appetite is accompanied by a general lack of interest in any activity, you would do well to have him checked by a vet.
7. Do the slow switch method
Some dogs just need more time to adjust to raw food diet especially after being so used to a different type of food for a long time. To facilitate his adjustment, you might want to consider doing the slow switch method. What you do is you mix his old diet with the new diet, gradually increasing the proportion of the new diet, until such time when you are feeding him just raw food. This will allow him to acquire a taste for raw food at a less stressful pace.
Introducing the raw food diet to your dog isn’t always as easy as just giving him raw meaty bones to munch on. There are a lot of things to consider, especially if your dog is the sensitive/picky eater type.
A good resource to check out though would be Maggie Rhines’ “Going Rawr! Dog Lover's Compendium”. If you have a dog or a puppy that you want to raise on a raw food diet, her expert tips and guidance will go a long way in helping you make the transition as easy and as pleasant as possible for both you and your pet!

ROYAL CANADIAN MOUNTED POLICE DOG HANDLER READY TO RETIRE
Cy has been a member of the RCMP for over 30 years.
Scooter has been on the Force less than five.
The first has wanted to be a police officer since the age of 7.
The other was born to be a member.
They come from completely different walks of life but Constable Cyril Gorman and his partner are inseparable.
"He's my best friend," said Gorman about his 78-pound partner in crime, Scooter.
Cst. Gorman has been a dog service handler with the Mounties for 21 years, working with canines to search for drugs and weapons, track suspects and execute search-and-rescue operations.
"I'm closer to my dogs than I am a lot of people," he said. "And it's that bond that allows him to do what he does for me and not stop doing it."
Gorman started his career in Maple Ridge, B.C., where he worked for nine years before getting involved in the police dog service in Kelowna where he started living a life-long dream.
"I can't remember what got me thinking this but it's something way back then people asked me what I wanted to do and this was it," he said. "They had a few pictures around in those days where you had an RCMP handler with a black and tan Shepherd and I've always loved dogs and it's something that I put my effort into."
After spending seven years in the Okanagan Valley, Gorman transferred back to his native Newfoundland where he spent another seven years.
Now in his eighth year in Grande Prairie, Cst. Gorman said he enjoys all aspects – or profiles – of the police dog service, but his favourite is still apprehension.
"I'd have to say tracking is my favourite profile," Gorman said. "I just love watching (Scooter) work and handling him when we're ... tracking a bad guy and catching that guy.
"There's no better reward."
While he always aspired to become a dog handler he said the job has far surpassed any of his childhood dreams.
"It's actually a lot more rewarding then I ever dreamed of," Gorman said. "I've had some really good success and timely successes and helped people."
Over more than 21 years of working with dogs, Gorman said he still has vivid memories of some of his favourite cases.
"I've had a few memorable cases that I'll never forget," he said.
The one that jumps out the most happened back in Newfoundland, where Gorman found an 11-year-old boy who had been missing in the woods for four days.
"I'll tell you there's not a better feeling in the world than that," he said.
Scooter is Gorman's fifth dog, but the handler said he couldn't name a favourite.
"They're all different," he said. "They all had things I didn't like and they all had things that I loved about them.
"You can't really compare one to the other because they're all different."
In Scooter, though, he has a young and energetic dog who learns quickly.
"He's strong in every profile," Gorman said of Scooter's abilities. "Every time you think he's at the highest level he can get at he steps it up a notch and shows you something different."
Because Scooter is so young he will move on to another handler when Gorman retires later this year.
Gorman said he's hand-picked Scooter's next handler and hopes there are no difficulties.
"It can be (difficult)," Gorman said. "Some dogs refuse to work for other people so it can be (but) hopefully it's not."
With retirement just around the corner Gorman said he considered becoming a dog service trainer when he turns in his badge but said he's got other plans.
"I'm probably going into the Subway business," Gorman said with a laugh. "My son and myself are part owners of Subways in Peace River and in Grimshaw so it's something that I can walk out into."
The RCMP Dog Service officially came into existence on May 25, 1935. From a modest beginning of only two teams stationed in western Canada, the RCMP Dog Service has grown to 87 teams stationed at strategic municipal and rural points from Newfoundland to Victoria Island.
One of Cst. Gorman's former partners, Ben, was retired on August 24 2007.
ATTENTION GERMAN SHEPHERD OWNERS!
"My name is Michael Tapscott and I've owned several German Shepherds (even a white one once), and I have also been a volunteer with a dog rescue organization for years, so I have a lot to tell you about this wonderful breed.
"As I'm sure you know, each dog breed is unique, and the German Shepherd is not an exception. The German Shepherd is among the most popular of all breeds, most likely for its loyalty and courage. But most owners don't realize how much attention, training, love and firm guidance is needed to get their dog to develop these characteristics.
"That's why I've spent months and months of research, interviewing German Shepherd trainers, vets, importers, dog owners and well-known breeders to compile the complete "German Shepherd Handbook"! CLICK HERE TO LEARN ALL ABOUT TRAINING GERMAN SHEPHERDS THE RIGHT WAY!
