Jim Dukas of Dallas tries to coax his dog, Quincy, up onto a platform that is part of a canine obstacle course at Hollenback Park in Wilkes-Barre on a sunny and dry Monday. Quincy wanted none of it and preferred to stay put on the ground. At least the weather cooperated for those trying some dog training. The forecast for the next few days calls for high temperatures in the 80s along with showers and possible thunderstorms. For the forecast, see Page 8A.
