Brinkley, the Sterling Police Department's Comfort Dog, greeted customers at Pet Smart Wednesday evening during her second birthday party celebration. The event featured goody bags, birthday cake, "pup cakes" for the first 100 dogs, a scavenger hunt and prices. If you missed the party, Brinkley's handler, community service officer Tekla Martin, likely will be posting pics on Brinkley Sterling, her Facebook page.
