A police department in Ontario, Canada has released a humorous calendar featuring some crime-solving K9s as they track down a bone-stealing pooch.

All proceeds from the calendar from the Waterloo Regional Police Service will go to Special Olympics Ontario, which the police force is hosting.

The calendar's description reads:

From a pet store crime scene to patrolling Waterloo Region in a vintage cruiser, this calendar tells the story of Ranger, Grim, Chase, and Tracker, as they work to solve a case of stolen dog bones - with a little help from their two-legged handlers.

The photographs were taken by animal photographer Jason Krygier-Baum, who says on his website:

The Waterloo Region Police approached me with a very unique task - to create a kickass K9 Calendar to raise serious funds for Special Olympics Ontario. I needed to keep the guns to a minimum and limit the donut jokes, but apart from that, I was free to do as I liked with the project.
It’s rare to be given create carte-blanche on an assignment, so I put my thinking cap on. I could keep things simple - a dozen ‘hero dog’ photos at locations around the Waterloo region, shot from below to make our K9s look mighty? Naa - too easy! How about highlighting the dogs’ unique talents of tracking down missing people and suspects? Hmmgetting warmer. Maybe I can get my dog into the photos somehow?? True to character, maybe she can be a criminal?? Got it! Photograph iconic police movie scenes as a 12 image story where the dogs are the cops and incorporate as many humorous doggy and police stereotypes as possible. Now THIS was a cool idea!
