Birthday wishes

Also celebrating in Westland last week was Bella the certified fire dog who marked her fifth birthday with a canine-pleasing cake. Bella's handler, Capt. Jeff Stobbe, was on hand to help the Labrador Retriever mark the occasion.

Bella, who came to Westland fully trained from Texas, is a certified arson detection canine and the first arson dog in Western Wayne County. For more than three years, she and Stobbe have helped area fire investigators locate trace evidence that reduces the time and duration of fire investigations and minimizes the potential for oversights.

Bella received multiple good wishes on the Facebook post celebrating her special day.
