Feature creature: Hayden is a big, happy three-legged dog

Hayden is a large, happy dog. She loves treats, toys and people. She had a deformed rear leg that the SCRAPS veterinarian determined should be removed. The leg was amputated two weeks ago, and SCRAPS said she is adapting well. Because of her high energy level, it would be better to place her in a home with children older than 12. Refer to the pet’s ID number when contacting SCRAPS about one of the adoptable pets. If interested in this dog call (509) 477-2532 or visit the shelter at 6815 E. Trent Ave. in Spokane Valley. Dog adoptions cost $120.

I honored her Christmas traditions by purchasing an ornament for each of my children, drinking eggnog out of Santa mugs.

Back to the future: While retro appeals to some RV’ers, others want all the latest gadgets

UPDATED: Fri., Jan. 17, 2020

Some RV enthusiasts prefer to hit the road in a refurbished vintage trailer. They’re cute, simple and nostalgic. Other travelers seek out higher-end, technology-loaded motorcoaches. Many consumers choose something in between. At area RV shows this week and next, a range of options will be on display. They include a retrofitted 1959 Aloha trailer for sale at the Jan. 23-26 Inland Northwest RV Show & Sale. Alongside some $450,000-plus models with more amenities than home, it’s a glimpse into how far RVs have come in 60 years.
