Is there a more adorable way to keep track of all your important appointments? 

The Vancouver Police Department's (VPD) 2021 Vancouver Police Dogs calendar is now on sale, and according to police, the 2021 edition looks "paw-some!"

The annual calendar always features members of the VPD Canine Unit and their four-legged partners, captured "in their best poses as they work to keep the city safe," the local police force explained in a release. 

For example, the 2020 calendar featured some truly special shots of B.C. police dogs with their handlers out kayaking, skateboarding and even rock climbing. Other photos showed the pups enjoying a well-deserved pool party, or answering tough questions at a packed press conference. 

Each calendar costs $15, with all funds raised going towards the BC Cancer Foundation and the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation.

The VPD says the calendar's sales have raised over $400,000 for charity since 2010. The idea for a police dog calendar was originally conceived by retired VPD Sergeant Mike Anfield, in honour of his wife Candy, a VPD officer who passed away in 2004 following a valiant battle with breast cancer.

The Vancouver Police Canine Unit currently has 16 handler / dog teams who collectively serve the city 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Each team is trained in criminal apprehension, as well as narcotics, firearms and explosives detection.
