Age: 5 years old Color: Brown and white Breed: bulldog mix ID: A14472614 This sweet girl must have had a rough time before coming here to the Humane Society of Washington County. Her sad eyes, the scars on her head and the timid way she barks at some people when she is unsure, seem to tell her story. Don't get the wrong impression about her though, Butterfly is a sweet and loving girl who loves to give kisses and to receive scratches on her rear.

HAGERSTOWN -- The Maryland Theatre's floor seats were for bidding and the balcony was for cheering during Saturday's butterfly statue auction "Buy it, buy it, buy it," dozens of students in the balcony chanted from above during one bidding battle. Several times, the students -- soon to start at the new Barbara Ingram School for the Arts next door -- yelled their support for the money soon to change hands. Saturday's Take Flight auction and gala in downtown Hagerstown capped months of butterfly-related hoopla over the new school, which is scheduled to open in August.
