Fortunately Theo is cute. The hound dog likes to lick ears, a gross-out move she gets away with because she's so friendly and eager to please. The dog was found running loose without identification near Bigelow Gulch Road and was brought in to the Spokane County Regional Animal Care and Protection Services shelter last week. There was a little gender confusion with Theo, who is less than a year old. Initially, she was listed at the shelter as a neutered male. Turns out, she's a female. Anyone interested in adopting Theo or other animals can visit the SCRAPS shelter at 2521 N. Flora Road, call the shelter at 477-2532 or visit the Web site at Dogs cost $75.01 to adopt, which includes a license, neutering, vaccinations, a microchip implant and a trip to the veterinarian.

After the fire

Angela Jones picked up her daughters from their first day of school. Marissa, a bouncy, energetic 5-year-old, had started kindergarten. Sydney, 9, was eager to get home and tell Jones stories about school. Yet normalcy stopped for the Jones family as Angela turned onto North Vista Road. Firetrucks and police cars blocked the way. Jones' rental house belched thick, black smoke into the late summer air. Jones ran toward the house, distraught. She thought her friend, Mike Wagner, was still inside. Sydney Jones said she can still remember every terrified word her mother said in those first minutes. Wagner was fine. Everything else was not.
