Missing brown dog (kinda, sorta, not really) from Enfield

Julie Eckert reports on the Enfield listserve that a “canine” was recently taken. Description:

Brown. Small. Quite heavy. Taken at Enfield dog park end of Oct. before scarecrows taken down.
Village very disappointed. Faithful ambassador to the park. Made of wood and carpet. Missing from Enfield dog park scarecrow display. Excellent “stay” , will not respond to voice commands. Never jumps up or barks.

If you’ve got the dog, she’s asking you to bring it to 3 Shaker Blvd. in Enfield.

Perkins works for Chippers Inc., a tree service that has been helping care for the tree. The tree will become the official state Christmas tree displayed at the capitol in Montpelier, where a lighting ceremony is set for Friday at 4:30 p.m. The tree was planted by the Fortier’s son Kevin about 30 years ago when he started studying landscape design in college.

We told you that this Hartland tree was gonna get cut down (and showed you its baby picture from 1990), and now it has happened!

BTW, there’s a lighting ceremony scheduled for Friday at 4:30 p.m. on the Vermont Statehouse lawn in Montpelier. 

p.s. TOTALLY SEPARATE AND UNRELATED, but doesn’t the tree photo remind you of this whole scene?

Pulled from the #valleynewsthrowback hashtag on the @vnewsuv Instagram!

The Lebanon city hall clock got a new coat of paint on June 7, 1965, as painters from Walter Painting and Decorating of Lebanon, N.H., did the honors high above the city square.
