Pops — Another Reason to Rescue

This is Pops. We don't know anything about his life prior to about ten days ago, when an anonymous woman near Canton found him in her yard during the worst of our recent bitter cold spell. He was emaciated to the point of starvation, dehydrated, hypothermic, and generally in very bad shape. She brought him …

Meeting Lexie and Lenny

My brother Chris is a fellow animal lover and rescue volunteer, recently joining forces with Our Pal’s Place here in Marietta (I use the phrase “joining forces” advisedly because my brother is a force to be reckoned with!).

Time for a tiny break

Never mind that I have my parents, the Offspring, and Mincot coming for Thanksgiving lunch; I’m working at Good Mews on Saturday for adoption counseling;? the GPC?

Disappointing show so far

Indeed, this weekend’s show was certainly disappointing on the first day, not only for us but for all the other artisan-vendors we talked with.? I thought all day that there didn’t seem to be the attendance I was accustomed to seeing, and both Diane and Lisa confirmed it.? I do not even think we have …
