KAMLOOPS - Police dog Whiskey and his sidekick Kilo visited the Royal Inland Hospital's pediatric ward last week to bring Christmas cheer to children. 

The children received stuffed animals donated from the B.C. Civil Forfeiture Program that looked like Whiskey for the kids to play with. 

Whiskey is a golden lab whose services are used for narcotics detection. Over the years, the dog has recovered millions of dollars worth of contraband in the Kamloops area.
