This week volunteers at Adopt A Dog have selected Addie as the program’s adoptable pet of the week. They describe her as follows:
“Addie is just over a year old and everything you could ask for in a lab! She’s smart — already knows lots of commands — playful, sweet, fantastic with other dogs, devoted to her person and ready to get out of this dang shelter and into a home where she knows she belongs!
But because Addie is such a smart girl, she needs to keep busy. That nose of hers is always working and she gets bored if there’s nothing to do. Daily exercise is a must for this girl — she’d make an awesome hiking/biking/skiing/running partner. And even better is if you’ve got another playful dog, because this girl loves to play! She likes rough-and-tumble play, so she needs a buddy who can keep up!
“Addie likes car rides, of course, too, so add “travel partner” to the list! She’s housetrained, current on shots, micro-chipped and spayed. The adoption fee for this awesome girl is $165; cash or check only, please.”
Since many of AAD’s dogs are in foster care, please call ahead to meet Addie 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.hoodriver-adoptadog.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. (For more information visit www.24petwatch.com or call 866-597-2424.)

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
