Photo feature: Best Friend
Richard Mendenhall of Sterling sent us this great photo of his rescue dog Buddy. Although it was taken in 2003 when Buddy was 1, Richard tells us the two continue to walk out together to get the Clarion every morning. "I love your paper and apparently he does, too," Richard said.
