Central Oregon residents love their pups, and Bend’s NorthWest Crossing is no exception. Dogs from the neighborhood are being featured in their own calendar to help a local nonprofit organization.
The 2012 Dogs of NorthWest Crossing Calendar grew out of a Facebook dog photo contest held this year. Twelve pooches were ultimately asked to model, and local professional photographer Karen Cammack posed them with donated gear from Bend-based Ruff Wear.
The calendar benefits the Bend Spay and Neuter Project, which provides low-cost spay and neuter services. The calendar costs $16. It will soon be available online at the websites below (for NorthWest Crossing find it under the Play menu in Events) and area businesses, including most in the NorthWest Crossing neighborhood. They will be available into January.
Contact: Northwestcrossing.com or Bendsnip.org.
Molly, a golden retriever who belongs to Michael McCaffery and Liz Dunn, is ”Miss April” in the calendar.

In response, Zach grumbled, slammed drawers and disappeared with friends. ”At first, she was…
The reality: That is not true, said Dr. Richard Koller, a Bend neurologist. A sneeze does increase the pressure inside the skull a little bit, he said. People have worried that sneezes may kill brain cells because other things that increase pressure on the brain, such as some types of stroke, can lead to brain cell death or even the death of the person. However,…
It's certainly not an age-old dilemma, but no doubt this question is caroming around in many a Central Oregonian's brain right about now: What to get the dog who has everything?Gone are the days when Rover skulked just outside the campfire's glow, hoping against hope that someone would toss a bone his way. These days, Bear and Shasta are probably parked directly beneath the family…
