Fiona, right, licks the face of owner Katie Nelson while seeing her on Sept. 25 for the first time since FIona had her leg amputated on Sept. 24. Nelson and Dan Evans adopted Fiona after she was struck by a car and rescued by Lodi police on St. Patrick’s Day. (Camera: Nikon D3s. Lens: Nikkon 17-35mm at 17mm. Exposure: 1/640th sec. at f/3.2. ISO: 6400)

Photographer’s note: Even if this was not a photo of my girlfriend and our dog this would still be a favorite photo. It’s been a rocky road since we adopted Fiona. Her leg never recovered from her injuries, and she chewed on her foot several times. It was decided that it was time to amputate her leg. Unfortunately, Katie was out of town on the day of surgery. It was a stressful day for all of us, but especially for her. I took this photo when Katie and Fiona saw each other for the first time after surgery. I was touching to see the two of them so happy.

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
