Dresses, tutus and sharks were on display Monday morning, but these costumes could not disguise the cute and cuddly dogs wearing them. The dogs were visitors at Heritage Woods in Sterling for Dress Up Your Dog Day and the friendly canines wasted no time getting to know the residents and begging for attention. Some dogs even asked for kisses. The assisted living facility at 2205 Oak Grove Ave. also is accepting donated items for Happy Tails Humane Society and Animal Shelter this week. Items needed include, pet food, cat liter, dog houses and kennels, pet carriers, office supplies and cleaning supplies. To donate visit Heritage Woods at 2205 Oak Grove Avenue. Donations are also accepted at Happy Tails in Rock Falls at 1408 McNeil Road. For more information about Happy Tails go to happytailsanimalshelter.org.
