Do holidays produce more dumped dogs?

December 27, 2013

Seeing the joy on your child's face when you surprise them with a dog or cat on Christmas morning is a Kodak moment, but perhaps not a practical one.
According to local animal shelter volunteers and welfare activists, animals given as “gifts” may seem like a good idea, but more often than not, the pets become a responsibility the person(s) aren’t ready for, leaving families with an animal they can't take care of and the difficult decision to give it up.

December 26, 2013

In a 46-25 shellacking of host Medical Lake back on Dec. 18, the Indians’ defensive pressure exacted a toll.
It was much the same last Saturday at Chewelah, where CHS rolled to a 32-10 halftime lead en route to a 50-21 win over the Cougars.

The Cougars began their week well with a 68-47 win over Kettle Falls at home, but Chewelah was overpowered in their next two games--a 68-46 loss at Riverside and an 81-50 home loss last Saturday night in the 395 Showdown to Colville.
Chewelah head coach Jason Norman knew there were going to be some growing pains with his mostly inexperienced varsity roster. But Norman certainly see’s signs of improvement.
