As a benefit for Hood River Adopt A Dog, local veterinarian and herding dog trainer Dr. Cynthia Mills will demonstrate the herding skills of her award winning dogs, Folly, Mango, and Krayken on June 22, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The event will take place at York Hill Farm at 5170 York Hill Drive in Hood River. Mills will be working her dogs in series so come for one, or stay for all.
A $5 donation is suggested, which will benefit Hood River Adopt A Dog, the volunteer group that provides care and adoption services for dogs at the Hukari Animal Shelter in Odell.

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
