Canines on stage
Another highlight of Camp Dogwood: the Canine Actors' Studio, where dogs practice for a performance of Indiana Jones and the Crystal Bone.
A towering Great Dane mix circles the room with a felt tarantula on his head. The dog's full name is Dunkin Donuts Da Dog, says his owner, a Southside Chicago cop forever relishing the name's cleverness. "We love camp," says Dogwood veteran Terry Maderak, whose patrols have included the infamous Cabrini Green. "It's our escape from reality."
