Christmas is almost here, and spending time with family can be the best — and worst — part of the holidays. Cramped quarters, conflicting personalities, and childhood baggage means tensions can run high, especially when you don't have any time to yourself. But with a little creativity, you ca [ ... ]
Meet Blue (and an already adopted Misty). I watched these two dogs get surrendered to the County on Saturday. Scenario: two guys pull up in a truck. Not knowing the process, they let the dogs out of their truck in the parking lot immediately. When told that the dogs com [ ... ]
When you don't want to slip your super, hairstylist, or babysitter an envelope of cash, it's appropriate to buy them a present instead, says Lizzie Post, coauthor of Lizzie Post's Etiquette, 18th Edition. Follow these guidelines: 1. Spend roughly the amount you would have given in cash. 2 [ ... ]
When it comes to holiday shopping, a lot of us are making things way harder than they have to be. The Journal for Consumer Research, Inc. found that we tend to avoid getting people on our Christmas list the same gift, even if we think that person will really like the gift. Apparently we l [ ... ]

Meet Bailey and Bosco. Don’t let Bailey’s smile fool you … he did his share of “stress” panting in his photo-shoot. And, Bosco shows great concern when Bailey is not within “sniffing” distance. The best part of their day is if a volunteer shows up and they get to see each other on a walk. How unfair that these two boys – in their Golden Years – have found themselves in a shelter. They are kind and agreeable – and completely trained. Clearly they are use to a house and a couch and this environment is completely foreign to them! How did this happen to them? Did their pet parents pass away? We don't know the answer, but based on our observations, they were once very loved dogs. We can't even imagine their confusion as to their present fate but we can hope that they will have a home for the holidays. Don’t delay … give these two amazing boys a safe haven for the rest of their days.
Note: Please keep in mind that all adoptable pets need time to decompress once they enter a home. For some it will happen quickly and for others it might take a few weeks. You'll want to be understanding of what they have been through and their level of insecurity. We ask that you treat all of them as if they were an 8 week old puppy. Assume they know nothing and begin at step one. You'll soon know what they are capable of and what behaviors you will need to work on with your new family member. It's called commitment! And, that's what these pets want more than anything!
