DENVER — A pair of Colorado cases — locally dubbed the "Cake Wars" — have added a new twist to the fight over LGBT discrimination and religious objections playing out across the U.S.

In one dispute, a gay couple who wanted a wedding cake filed a complaint against a baker who turned them away, citing his Christian faith. The other has developed along opposite lines, with a customer requesting a cake with an anti-gay biblical message saying he's been discriminated against by shops that refused him.

Here's a look at where things stand:

LOVELAND, Colo. (AP) — A 2-year-old Rottweiler who lost his paws when he was left out in the freezing cold as a puppy is learning to walk on prosthetics for all four legs.

Brutus received the prosthetics through the donations of hundreds of people. New owner Laura Aquilina of Loveland says the ultimate goal is to give Brutus the gift of being a dog.

Felix Deurr, an orthopedics professor at Colorado State University who focuses on small animals, says such prosthetics have been developed only in the past 15 years. A study on their effectiveness is due out later this year.

DENVER (AP) — Drought-weary Californians can't expect much encouragement from mountains elsewhere in the West: Snow that fills the Colorado River is lagging, too, officials said Friday.

The snowpack in the Colorado and Wyoming valleys where the river originates now ranges from 51 to 79 percent of normal, said Brian Domonkos, Colorado supervisor of the U.S. Department of Agriculture snow survey, which monitors snowfall and water availability.

The Colorado River supplies water to about 40 million people and 6,300 square miles of farmland in seven states, including California.

The Rocky Mountain snow that melts into the river doesn't flow directly to California and other downstream users.
