PICTURE OF THE WEEK
Last week's theme was dogs in the snow, and you sent in dozens of great ones. There was Shadow, the Afghan/Spit Rat from Homer; Tara, whose idea of fun is playing in the snowblower; and Seven, a pup who won the unofficial cutest head-tilt contest.
When the snow cleared, the picture of the week was of Hitch, the 9-month old Chesapeake Bay retriever who helps out with the shoveling. Nice job, Juli Hermanns
Runners-up went to Jack, owned by Luz Maskell; and Hank the Tank. Yeah, the picture is cool, but it was the "Tank" nickname bestowed on him by Maleia Grabinski that put him over the top.
