Pet of the Week: Huckleberry is ‘a real hoot’

This week volunteers at Adopt A Dog have selected Huckleberry as the program’s adoptable pet of the week. They describe him as follows:

“Huckleberry is about 1 to 2 years old and beginning to learn about the good life. He and a bunch of his best buddies were rescued a few weeks ago from a very bad living situation, and although none had any real social interaction with humans and all were living outside in the cold and rain, most of them are very social and affectionate, and Huckleberry is one of the best!

“Didn’t take this little guy long to figure out he likes cuddling and playing with people. Huckleberry is very sweet and attentive and loves to play with other dogs and thinks the Great Indoors is extra awesome! No more chilly nights for him!

“Huckleberry and all his buddies seem to know that life has gotten a lot better for them and they love it! He’s a real hoot and would be happiest in a home with other dogs — and that just means more entertainment for the whole family!”

Huckleberry is current on shots, micro-chipped and neutered. The adoption fee for this “lovable, and now snuggly little guy” is $185; cash or check only, please. The fee to adopt is charged to recoup standard veterinary expenses.

Since many of AAD’s dogs are in foster, please call ahead to meet Huckleberry at the Hukari Animal Shelter, 3910 Heron Drive, Odell; 541-354-1083. Adoption hours are Wednesdays from 5-7 p.m. and Saturdays from 9-11 a.m. Applications may be downloaded at and faxed to 877-833-7166.

The Adopt A Dog program offers 24PetWatch microchips, which include free registration into the 24PetWatch pet recovery service. (For more information visit or call 866-597-2424.)

I Can't Keep Quiet singers at "Citizen Town Hall"

‘I can’t keep quiet,’ sing members of an impromptu choir in front of Hood River Middle School Saturday prior to the citizen town hall for questions to Rep. Greg Walden. The song addresses female empowerment generally and sexual violence implicitly, and gained prominence during the International Women’s Day events in January. The singers braved a sudden squall to finish their song and about 220 people gathered in HRMS auditorium, which will be the scene of the April 12 town hall with Rep. Greg Walden, at 3 p.m. Enlarge
