Cecilia has suffered a lot of loss lately. First, her beloved father-in-law died. Before she can adjust to his passing, her husband is killed in a work accident. She’s left in a house she didn’t pick, a town she didn’t choose, and with a dog she didn’t want. Ferris was always more Joey’s dog. A big, goofy, golden retriever, he’s uncoordinated, slobbery, and enthusiastic always. He’s not what she’d choose to be her family.

Helping homeless animals is a cause close to the hearts of many. And, reading great books is a great way to relax.
With that in mind, a group of fourteen USA Today, Wall Street Journal, and award winning authors have joined together to create a box set of mystery books with preorder funds going to support three rescue groups. Streetdog Foundation, Northshore Animal Shelter, and Home “Fur” Good.

Marmaduke is a seven-year-old blue American Staffordshire Terrier who has been with Valley Animal Center since November of 2016. Though Marmaduke was adopted in 2017, he was returned four days later at the adoptee’s discretion. Due to his friendly nature and contagious smile, Marmaduke has been a staff favorite since the beginning.

In some ways, dogs are like children. If you have more than one, one will become your favorite. I know parents try not to have favorites and won’t admit it, but it happens, usually to the one that is least able to fend for himself.

Terrific Tulip is a tan and white, eight-year-old Chihuahua who has been in our care since September 2018. Tulip was abandoned at Valley Animal Center. After her initial adoption, Tulip had a reaction to her vaccines which rendered her temporarily immobile; she is now unable to receive any additional vaccines. When she returned to the center, Tulip made a full recovery and is now ready for her forever home.

First visit to Bangkok: Finding a Pet Friendly Hotel

While traveling the world for 10 years, my husband and I stayed at low-end budget hotels to keep within our budget. As travelers living on Social Security, we didn’t have money to spend on luxury places. This meant we had a lot of experiences we would have missed if we had stayed only in better hotels. It also meant we met a lot of wonderful people, took local transit, ate from street vendors, and experienced some tummy troubles while traveling. Without these experiences, our 10 years of traveling would not have been as much fun or as educational.
