donating funds to fill wading pools throughout the summer

Thought the CDN readers would be interested to hear that plans to donate funds to fill wading pools at East Queen Anne, Powell Barnett and Wallingford. They are to be filled up on Saturdays throughout the summer. As to the reason why?

“We’ve shifted our marketing focus to a highly-targeted local strategy and Seattle continues to be a top market for us, especially when it comes to connectivity on mobile devices,” said Valerie Combs, a  spokesperson at “We want to show the community a little love and while we can’t permanently do away with those 520 bridge tolls or promise more sunshine, we can make their days a little easier.”

Found 2 female boxer puppies

I found two female boxer puppies wandering the streets around 29th and Judkins early this morning. They look to be around 3 months old. I knocked on some doors in the area to see if they belong to anyone but no one answered. I talked to some folks walking their dogs but no one knew of them. 

I took them to my place to check them out (in good physical shape) and fed them (super hungry). I didn’t feel right about leaving them alone in a strange house plus my place is not puppy-proof. I absolutely would not leave them to wander the streets so took them to the Seattle Animal Shelter – 2061 15th Ave W, Seattle, WA 98119, (206) 386-7387.

I am a long standing volunteer at the shelter so I know the care they will receive and can keep track of them. I am posting this just in case the owner(s) read the site.
