TUALATIN — A furry friend who brightens life at Resurrection Church is Toby, a miniature beagle.  The 7-month-old puppy joined the parish family in May when he was adopted by Dennis Rood, the church’s building and grounds maintenance manager.

Toby comes to work at the church every day with Rood and even has his own seat on the maintenance tractor.
