FEATURE: Dog days of winter?
Elise Malkowski, 8, of Midland plays a game of tug-of-war with 15-month-old Levi, a lab-boxer mix breed, Saturday at Chippawassee Park in Midland. Malkowski and her family adopted Levi about one month ago from the local humane society. The family always talked about getting a dog, and once they saw Levi on the website, she said, they could not get him out of their minds. "He's really big and so much fun," she said. "He lays on my sister's bed all the time. When we are out, we like to throw snowballs at him to make him jump. Oh, and he's very friendly. He likes other dogs, and really likes to sniff other dogs' butts."
