This feature is designed as a counterweight to all the bad news in the world that weighs people down. We could share a photo of a baby, or a photo of a dog, but we are giving you both. How many newspapers can say that? Kate Vikstrom, our resilient layout editor who this week takes leave of The Current after six years and 324 issues to move closer to her family in the Northwest, shared this photo of granddaughter Nola with beagle Lena. If you have a photo of a baby and a dog, submit it for consideration to email@example.com.
