Thanksgiving. A holiday started long ago that currently finds its way into homes of pumpkin scents, laced around glazed turkeys, cranberry sauce, and good-ole mashed potatoes. Yet the Thanksgiving holiday is not just seen as a time to celebrate that we all love to eat, and the food coma we eventually fall into afterwards, but a day to stop and think about what we are truly thankful for.
School is back in session and before you know it the holidays will be here. We want our dogs to be on their best behavior as they begin to spend more time indoors and need to impress our friends and family.

Samson is a gentle boy who loves to spend time walking, running and playing outside. He is also very curious and amiable: he loves to say hello to people, dogs and just about any bush or tree that he passes. He is a happy boy — his tail never stops wagging on walks. He would be a super buddy for an energetic person. This outgoing, active, handsome, affectionate guy is a great dog, now he just needs a family of his own to make him complete. He is looking for an active home, with daily morning walks or jogs — weekend hikes would be a big bonus. While he could live without another dog it would be ideal for him to have another young, active dog for him to play and romp with so he can burn off some energy. Samson will need help with his leash manners and not jumping on folks to greet them.

I have never been tempted to write a letter like this before. However, in 17 years of mountain biking and the seven different shops I’ve frequented over the years, I have never encountered customer service like at Javelina Cycles. The first time they took great care of me, I thought it was a fluke. The second time impressed me, but it was not until many times later time that I realized that is just the way they do business.
Bo is a great little guy, who was very loved and cared for, but reluctantly his owner had to give him up. Bo graduated from PetSmart Obedience Training a few years back, therefore, he is very mannerly and gets along with other dogs. He loves attention, treats, going for walks, and being brushed. He had dental work at some point and is missing a few lower teeth, but that does not hinder him from smiling at everyone he meets. Bo also has a nice, lush coat. He is 8 years old, weighs 10 pounds, is neutered, current on vaccinations and has a microchip.
Bobby is a very handsome 3-year-old Pomeranian who thinks he is still a puppy. He is playfully silly all the time, and when he’s worn out, he will lay faithfully at your side gazing up at you as if to say, “I’m ready for more fun!” Bobby is a clean slate and will excel with obedience training. He weighs 11 pounds and is a long and tall boy with a great coat and nice white teeth. Bobby would love an active home with a yard to play in. He is neutered, current on vaccinations and has a microchip.

You’ve heard it a million times: check with your doctor to make sure not being a couch potato is right for you. Your doctor might not clear you to run a marathon, but hopefully he will clear you to put the remote down and start moving at some level. That will be the easy part.
“The jerks that are protesting: not only are we paying for police protection, are they all on welfare? They apparently don’t work?”
“I do not mind the ‘snowbirds’ who come to the Valley. They are older and wiser than most of us. They spend their money here and help our local economy. To those of you who complain about the increased traffic, their careful driving, etc., remember that you will be old one day too. I hope people won’t mind you living where you want to and treat you with respect. Have a great summer, ‘snowbirds.’ See you in the fall!”
I felt very discouraged last week. There wasn’t one thing in particular that weighed me down, but it was as if a dark cloud were hanging over my head with a heaviness that was not easily shaken.
You might remember in last month’s column I mused about taming my tongue. I’d like to report I’ve got that problem licked, but it’s not the case. Beware; state publicly that you’re making an effort, and the dark side makes a habit of throwing temptation your way.

It's believed that the ancient Babylonians were the first to make, and presumably break, New Year's resolutions because their customary eleven-day celebrations left them with a few regrets and a pile of resolving to do. (You know what they say: "What happens in Mesopotamia, stays in Mesopotamia!"TM)
