Soft shelter reopening

My friend was thrilled to learn a week ago that groomers would be allowed to reopen (with restrictions, of course).  She immediately made an appointment for her Maltese/shih tzu mix that looked twice her size with her thick coat.  I’m so jealous!  Our dogs can get a haircut but we can’t!?  How is that fair?  I look every bit as shaggy as little Jazz did and I’d gladly take an appointment at the Poodle Parlor if they’d let me!  Some of those groomers are true artists and magicians with dramatic differences in the before and after photos to prove it.

Microchips work to getting reunited

You hear these amazing stories all the time about animals who have been missing for years getting reunited with their families because of a microchip and it is true – microchips work!  We recently had a stray cat brought to us that was found near a business in town, far from any residential area.  She was friendly and appeared well cared for but was certainly lost.  A quick once over with the magic wand, I mean scanner, revealed that this girl was chipped!!
