Pet of the Week
photo: towncrier
To strut or not to strut, that is the dilemma. Os and the other shelter dogs hope to get adopted in time to join Strut Your Mutt. Other than kibble and belly rubs, strutting is real high on a dog's list of favorite things. A 2-3-year-old Chesapeake Bay retriever mix , Os has a curly black coat with little golden flecks and white markings. He's housebroken, good with dogs and kids and obeys commands and knows how to heel, so he'd be a super strutter.

Don't miss the fun Saturday and come on down to see Holly Beary, last winter's Dumpster dog, who now has a wonderful family and will be leading all the other dogs as they strut their stuff.

If you would like to adopt a pet, call or stop by the Homer Animal Shelter on the Bypass across from the post office. The shelter is open seven days a week, 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Call 235-3141, e-mail, or visit
