A Eugene woman and her fluffy gray Keeshond, Tikva, flew to New York last month as invited guests for the 9/11 Day of Remembrance. Tikva is a therapy dog, and she and her handler, Cindy Ehlers, spent two weeks at Ground Zero following the terrorist attacks a decade ago, giving comfort to rescue workers.
Rose City Veterinary Hospital will host its 100th birthday celebration Sunday, July 24, noon-4, at the clinic in SE Portland. The festivities, including refreshments, games, prizes, and more, will provide fun for the whole family, and all are invited to attend.
