“… if only I had opposable thumbs!” Unfortunately, you can’t win a relay race if you can’t hold onto the baton. So learned Bernard, a three-year-old long-haired Chihuahua (or something rather similar) at this year’s Olympics in Tokyo. Bernard is good with other dogs, a trait that is consistent with the Olympic spirit. 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 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.
