Petsmart National Fall Adopt-A-Thon

In another time and place, I was fortunate to be part of a group photography show. Opposite the gallery is the local humane society. While we had been talking about bringing a dog into our home, no plan had formed that morning when I felt compelled to cross the street. Yes, our lives were about to be transformed by a Westie taken into their shelter only an hour before my visit. Somehow the former owners and this dog had failed one another, but we and Biscuit have made a success seven years running.

This weekend, PetSmart and McKamey are offering the same bargain. Healthy cats and dogs will be available at PetSmart on 5591 Highway 153. For each adoption, $25 goes to McKamey. Dogs are $100 and cats, $40, so stop by Friday, Saturday or Sunday afternoons and get some furry love of your own.

Doggie Paddle

For some dogs, the only thing more fun than a ride in our cars is a dip with us. Saturday the Warner Park pool opened its gates to the Doggie Paddle, which raised serious money for McKamey Animal Center.

Need a cat?

No, thank you.

Not for you....

...unless your name is Labradoodle.

A wet terrier is not pleased.
