Every Wednesday, we'll whet your police log appetite with the week's best entries.

The Lake Oswego police log is, shall we say, rather popular. We even made a book out of it a few years ago, and people still come into the office in search of a copy.

So with that in mind, we present the Bite-Sized Blotter — a Wednesday sneak peek at the week's calls before the whole log posts Thursday:

8/23 8:38 a.m. A caller said the front of a building was "covered in poo, vomit and vomit" near the 100 block of A Avenue. Police determined someone put ice cream on the windows – possibly Rocky Road flavor.

8/25 3:26 a.m. A man believed his car was stolen, but he'd actually forgotten he left it at a friend's house. He was told not to pick it up until he sobered up.

8/26 2:07 p.m. A man said he purchased a meal at 1:45, was told the restaurant stopped serving food at 1:30 and was not offered a refund or any food. Further, the manager was demanding he apologize to staff and he wasn't sure why.

8/26 2:18 p.m. A Pitbull was chasing ducks near the 600 block of S State Street.

8/29 8:13 p.m. A caller said she was walking dogs when a squirrel chased her down multiple streets. She worried something was wrong with the squirrel.
