This week volunteers at Adopt A Dog have selected Dayley as the program’s adoptable pet of the week. They describe him as follows:
“Dayley is about 2 years old and a border collie mix. He is exceptionally attentive and lovable and craves cuddles. Check out his video on our website. He loves to walk around with his peeps and just check things out, or go on a nice walk outside just for the heck of it, or even better — turns out he loves being a running buddy!
“You won’t find a more snuggly, devoted dog, who looks like he’s completely mesmerized by everything you say or do! Dayley is fine with other dogs but the big thrill for him is being with people and getting attention! He is ready for his new family to shower him with love and affection.
“Although Dayley is calm and sweet as can be, he sometimes shows bad manners when it comes to sharing his items, like his bed or toys, and we’re working on fixing that; so for now, we do not recommend him going to a home with kids.”
Dayley is housetrained, current on shots, micro-chipped and neutered. The adoption fee for him 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 care, please call ahead to meet Dayley 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 www.hoodriveradopt-adog.org and faxed to 877-833-7166.
The Adopt A Dog program offers 24PetWatch microchips, which include free registration into the 24PetWatch pet recovery service.

Lawnmower torches Arbor Vitae on Portland Drive
The riding lawn mower driven by Norma Cannon overheated and made contact with dry arbor vitae owned by Lee and Norma Curtis, sending more than a dozen of the tightly-packed trees up in flames. The mower, visible at far right, was totaled. No one was injured; neighbors first kept the fire at bay with garden hoses and Westside and Hood River Fire Departments responded and doused the fire before it reached any structures. Westside Fire chief Jim Trammell, in blue shirt, directs firefighters. The video was taken by Capt. Dave Smith of Hood River Fire Department. Enlarge
