Wizardly (or WizzyPoo) is 6-pound, 4- to 5-year-old chiweenie. His dad was a Chihuahua and his mother was a long-hair dachshund. Wizardly’s owner passed away and now he needs a new forever home.

He is neutered and has current vaccinations. Wizardly walks well on a leash and was trained to walk beside a power wheel chair. He was a companion to his owner while she lived in an assisted living home and was taken to see her everyday while she was in the convalescent hospital.

Wizardly is used to sleeping with his owner and is house-trained. He will bark for intruders but is not aggressive. He is gentle, affectionate, well-mannered and a lap dog. Wizardly is very playful with his toys and loves other animals, both dogs and cats, and will encourage them to play. His current playmates are larger ranch dogs. Wizardly has not been around children, and if you take him to a dog park he will be intimidated — if he finds a nice dog to play with he is fine. Wizardly enjoys riding in the car and loves to snuggle. He will make a great companion.

Wizardly is being offered for adoption through Animal Friends Connection, a Lodi nonprofit organization dedicated to helping companion animals since 1990. For more information about Wizardly, call 209-368-1761.

Merci is a 4-month-old silver tabby kitten. You will love her energy and zest for life. She has been raised in a foster home and has brought a lot of silliness into it. Merci loves to play, and her favorite game is to capture a toy mouse and carry it in her mouth. She would now like to share that playfulness with a forever family. If you would like to meet Merci, visit Robinson’s Feed Store on Victor Road in Lodi, where she is currently residing.

Merci is being offered for adoption through PALS, a Lodi-based nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the welfare of companion animals in Lodi. For more information about Merci, please call PALS at 224-0354 or email pals.lodi@yahoo.com.

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?
