Auburn beaver makes it big

AUBURN, CA - Everyone's been talking about Aaron Rodgers being the Super Bowl hometown hero, but he's not the only local celebrity.

A beaver named Waldo, who lives in Auburn, was in the Firestone commercial that aired during the Super Bowl. The four legged starwas a rescue; he now lives atthe non-profit sanctuary Wild Things.

Naughty puppy, bad kitty!

Sacramento police dogs raising money through calendar

SACRAMENTO, CA - Four-legged members of the Sacramento County Sheriff's Department have a new job -- they're furry calendar models.

Dogs from the department's K9 unit are featured in a 2011 calendar designed to raise funds for the nonprofit Sacramento Sheriff K9 Association.

A 3-year-old German shepherd named Ronin is Mr. June. He's shown posing dramatically with his handler on the bank of the American River as a sheriff's helicopter hovers overhead.

The money raised will help pay training  costs for working dogs and medical costs for retired animals.

The calendars are $20 and can be ordered on the Sacramento County Sheriff's K9 Association Website through their online store.
