This week we are combining #tbt and #k9friday into one! On the left is Ralph Crookston, a former Undersheriff and the man on the right is George Odell. Ralph owned those dogs personally, but generously offered them to assist the Sheriff’s Office. George did not work for the Sheriff’s Office, he was a Game Manager, kind of like today’s NYS Econ Police. George and Ralph worked and trained the bloodhounds together. The photo was around 1960. #pcso #americanbloodhounds #putnamstrong
