K9 Oso, K9 Tryon & Heather
Oso is an energetic chocolate labrador retriever qualified for in-county airscent searches. Respected by dogs and feared by dog owners for his ability to open door handles, Oso is named in honor of the 2014 Oso, WA mudslide where Heather and her yellow lab, Tryon (certified in Airscent and Human Remains Detection with specializations in water and avalanche) worked. Heather can usually be found enthusiastically training dogs whenever she is not at work as a Director of Learning for the Girl Scouts. Heather is an operations leader who has played many roles in KCSD throughout most of its history and is the currently serving as President.
