While other students have battled boredom as the number of days of school missed because of weather piles up, Whitley County High School senior Thomas Bird has spent his time adding some characters to the new Knox/Whitley Animal Shelter.

The teen, who said he plans to go to college to study graphic arts, has spent the last week working in the dog kennel area bringing to life drawings of Snoopy, Droopy, and Brian, the dog who appears on the animated series, “Family Guy.”
