STERLING – Pupcakes for everypuppy!

Or at least the first 100.

Brinkley, Sterling Police Department’s comfort dog, turned 2 on Jan. 9. Members of the public and their pooches are invited to come celebrate from 5 to 7 p.m. today at PetSmart, 3210 E. Lynn Blvd.

The first 100 dogs will receive pupcakes. For their fussy human owners, cake, ice cream and punch also will be served.

If you miss the party, Brinkley’s handler, community service officer Tekla Martin, likely will be posting pics on Brinkley Sterling, her Facebook page.
