‘Do you like Kipling?’

“I don’t know,” comes the reply. “I’ve never kippled!” And what, you may be wondering, does this old joke involving author Rudyard Kipling have to do with the current Town and Country Humane Society doggy? Simple. This week’s canine is named after one of Kipling’s characters in his famous work, The Jungle Book. Specifically, his name is Baloo, who was the big bear in the Kipling stories. Our Baloo is a big boy, although not nearly as big as a bear. He is a two-year-old mixture of white Swiss shepherd, German shepherd, and American Staffordshire terrier. (They ran his DNA.) If you are interested in adopting this wonderful dog, call (530) 517-1754 to arrange to see him in person. The Town and Country Humane Society shelter is located on Highway 99 between between County Roads 21 and 23, south of Orland. It is a nonprofit run by volunteers committed to the idea of making life better for our furry friends. Glenn County Observer photo by Larry Judkins.
