Reading Does Not Need to be a Solitary Event

 As evidenced by the persistence of recently adopted Rozco.  His new BFF seems to be managing reading and puppy-love all at once.   Reading to dogs is good for everyone.   WARL/WHS volunteers read to dogs in the kennels.  It helps the dogs to settle down and enjoy a little quiet time with someone special.  Obviously, little Rozco has the enjoying time with someone special nailed down, not so sure about the quiet time. J

Can't Let National Poetry Month Slip Away Without a Jack Prelutsky Poem!

My Neighbor’s Dog is Purple  by  Jack Prelutsky
My neighbor’s dog is purple, 
Its eyes are large and green,
its tail is almost endless, 
the longest I have seen. 
My neighbor’s dog is quiet, 
It does not bark one bit, 
but when my neighbor’s dog is near, 
I feel afraid of it. 
My Neighbor’s dog looks nasty, 
it has a wicked smile….. 
before my neighbor painted it, 
it was a crocodile.

Max and Katie -- Nearly Two Decades of Togetherness!

When Lisa, one of our Behavior and Training Specialists, was in Kitty City last week she spoke to a visitor who shared one of those heart-warming stories that bears repeating.  

Katie told Lisa that Max, who was adopted by her family when he was just a kitten and Katie was just 3 years old, was celebrating his 19th birthday!  As promised, Katie forwarded a BFF picture to Lisa; Lisa shared it with all staff, and I am happily sharing it (with Katie's permission) with the world!  My guess is that Max and Katie's common history could be the catalyst for an entire library of stories.   Imagine the secrets they have shared.  

Wishing Max and Katie many more years together!
