Pet of the Week
photo: towncrier
If you went to "The Strut" last Saturday, you and your mutt may have been strutting your stuff right next to two female*shelter dogs, Sweetie and her friend Shadow. Sweetie is a happy, fluffy, white Samoyed mix about 6-months old who loves to play ball. Shadow is a 3-year-old black cocker spaniel who just loves everybody. After the Strut, everyone else went home but Sweetie and Shadow, like Cinderella after the ball, had to return to their real*lives at the animal shelter. As the gate closed on the cage they wondered if the day had been*only a dream. (Where, oh where is Prince Charming?)

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
