When it was time for Ahwatukee Foothills resident Michelle Milich to get a new dog she figured an American Bulldog, known for no major health problems and low grooming, would be a good choice. She had a family member looking to get rid of an American Bulldog and the timing seemed like fate, but looking back Milich had no idea what fate had in store.
Maya is a 4 1/2-year-old American Pit Bull/Chinese Shar-Pei mix. She originally came to the Arizona Animal Welfare League on March 1, 2012, and then adopted exactly a month later. She was then returned to AAWL earlier this year when it was found that while she is very social and loves the dog park and other dogs, she isn’t a fan of living in the same home with them. Maya is a very shy girl and it takes a while for her to warm up to any new human friend, but once she does, she has a way of stealing your heart and making you fall for her.

Someday, the world will look back on this era and shake its collective head about decades of insanity. The world will wonder how we ever managed to live in these conditions. The world will congratulate itself that it finally saw the light and wonder why it took so long to do so.
In the 1990s valuable medical research began to appear on using acupuncture and Chinese herbs, along with patients doing In Vitro Fertilization (IVF). What was known for thousands of years with patients not having Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) is that Chinese medicine increases a couple’s chance of getting pregnant. With a German study being published in 2002 they found that it increased the patients success up to 60 percent. After this study many countries, including America, have conducted their own studies. Over and over again the results are the same. Acupuncture and Chinese herbs increase the percentage rate of a woman’s chance in getting pregnant.

The first time I had to test a recipe for steamed fish was back in the ’80s, when I was working in the test kitchen at Gourmet magazine. And truthfully, the very idea seemed preposterous.
So much of Chinese medicine is linked to how our emotions are connected to our health and well being. In fact the very fundamentals of Chinese medicine are reflected in the five elemental theory. This theory states each major organ has a specific emotion that affects it. It also states that out of that negative emotion can come a positive drive. For instance, at one point in my life I got angry with the way that I was being treated as a patient. I was also upset that there were no options to help me in my condition. If that wouldn’t of happened I would have never thought of becoming a health care provider. Out of that anger came a passion to help others in their healing process.

Ollie, a 2-year-old Shepherd-Chinese Shar-Pei mix, is excited to meet new people. He gets so excited sometimes that he forgets just how big he is (he likes to give bear hugs). Other than needing to work on his manners, Ollie is a pretty happy-go-lucky oversized puppy. He recently learned about hiking, and loves it. Enjoying the fresh air on a nice day with a human is really something Ollie looks forward to.

Lately I have been hearing people claim that they are a “foody.” Initially, I had thought that term meant they are a fan of food. To me that was kind of funny because should we not all be fans of food? Our bodies need it and we all seem to be a fan of it from infancy and beyond. Ask any mother. Although the term “foody” according to the dictionary is, “a person having an enthusiastic interest in the preparation and consumption of good food.” Now that I can get on board with.
If the federal government was meant to create jobs, it would have created a surplus of them by now, and unemployment would be far below 7.8 percent — considering the exorbitant amount of money the Obama administration has, as it says, “invested” to do so.
