Forget the Well-Dressed Sports Heads. Look at these well-dressed doggos!

Some friends and I attended the Puppies and Pooches on Parade fundraiser for the Friends of the Norman Williams Public Library in Woodstock on Saturday, and I took a bit of video from a dog’s-eye-view. Find a list of winners from the various categories — such as Most Precious Petite, Mightiest Mid-Size, and so on — at the Valley News website.


New London & Sutton fire departments rescue 38-year-old horse stuck in brook

Horse Tom, who had been missing since Wednesday evening, was discovered stuck three to four feet deep in a brook on Thursday. The New London and Sutton (N.H.) fire departments used a mini excavator to both sling the 38-year-old horse and to stabilize him once he was out.

Read about the whole thing on the New London Fire Department’s Facebook page.
