Annie is energetic and lovable.

It’s going to be another warm day, and there’s a sunny weekend ahead.

It was a beautiful 13 C at 6:30 a.m. this morning and it’s expected to go up to 26 C during the day, with a risk of thundershowers this afternoon. Tonight’s low will be around 6 C, with showers.

It’s looks like it’ll be a good weekend to get outside. Saturday’s forecast calls for 11 C , with a mix of sun and cloud, dropping to 5 C overnight.

Sunday should be around 11 C again, with mainly sun.


Plenty of Pets

Annie is an energetic young dog who needs an active person willing to spend time on training.

She is about two years old and very friendly, but because she will jump up on people she isn’t suited to a home with small children. She gets very excited when she sees cats, making the cats nervous, so she should go to a home with no cats.

Annie would love to have a home where she gets lots of exercise and love. With commitment and patience she will become a wonderful pet.


Fuel prices:

Both gasoline and diesel prices went up overnight.

Gasoline increased 4.4 cents to a price of $1.09.6 per litre.

Diesel went up 2.8 cents and costs 99.7 per litre this week.
