As Monona’s police K9 Miya nears her Dec. 30 retirement, community members can wish her well at the Monona Police Department’s pancake breakfast Dec. 5.
Hosted at the Monona Community Center, 1011 Nichols Road, from 7 a.m. to 12 p.m., all proceeds from the breakfast will go directly to the police department’s K9 unit.
Miya will be on hand for photos and well wishes, said Monona Police Sergeant Adam Nachreiner, Miya’s handler.
Santa Claus will also be in attendance. Patrons will be able to take photos with Santa from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m., Nachreiner said.
On the menu will be pancakes, eggs, sausage, apple sauce and beverages. Entry is $8 for adults, $5 for kids and free for children aged three or younger.
Miya’s Dec. 30 retirement will mark the end of an 11-year career with Monona police. She will spend her retirement living at home with Nachreiner and his family.
The department is currently in the process of finding a new dog to lead the K9 unit in Monona.
