California is a big state with millions of residents, which also means that there are a lot of pets. Unfortunately, some residents are unable or unwilling to take care of their dogs and they become strays. If adequate provisions are not taken, these strays end up reproducing quickly and become a growing public nuisance.

Dallas, a ten-year-old Westie, was surrendered by his owner to Lone Star Westie Rescue (LSWR). His family had come to Texas some years prior, and when his owner had to move to a senior apartment, she could not take Dallas. As is so often the case, no one else in the family wanted him.

Well kids, the year 2017 has finally tucked its tired tail between its legs and is officially leaving the building. Let’s all say it together; good riddance! What a tumultuous twelve months it’s been, and we’ve seen it all from the Good; an amazing Total Solar Eclipse, the Bad; Mother Nature’s wrath of wildfires and hurricanes, and the Ugly; cruel terrorist attacks and heartless massacres.

As the end of the year approaches, there is still time to make a tax-deductible donation to The Cat House on the Kings. This has been a crazy year (meaning expensive) for The Cat House. The storms, the floods, trees crashing down, and fences destroyed. We had numerous cats dumped on our doorstep, cats rescued from cars, kittens rescued from dumpsters, cats/kittens attacked by dogs, hit by cars, abandoned in alleys.

by Lee Juslin


Jarret is either a Schnauzer mix or, what dog people call, a natural Schnauzer, because his ears have not been docked and are floppy. The tail, however, has been docked. At about three years old, Jarret has been with NY/NJ Scottie rescue for one year. He was pulled from a New York City shelter that determined he was a Scottie so they called NY/NJ Scottie Rescue.

Tonya Kappes has penned one of my favorite series ‘percolating’ lots of fun. The Killer Coffee Mystery follows Roxanne ‘Roxie’ Bloom who, after a not-so-amicable divorce, has moved back to Honey Springs, Kentucky, to open up The Bean Hive, the town’s first coffeehouse. First published in January 2017, Scene of the Grind has Roxie being adopted by her new Schnauzer Pepper and rekindling her relationship with former summer sweetheart Patrick Cane.
