Once upon a time, people who craved a tablet computer bought an iPad.
I enjoyed the AP (Associated Press) article on how “A Christmas Story” has become a part of our deeply-rooted Christmas tradition (“‘A Christmas Story’ at 30: Now part of the family,” AFN, Dec. 4). However, I was surprised and disappointed at the writer’s failure to mention the story’s author, who narrated the film and who also appeared in it as the gruff gentleman who directs Ralphie and his brother to the end of the line to see Santa at Goldblatt’s.
Wanda is a 4-year-old beautiful Lemon Beagle that was a shelter dog rescued by Arizona Beagle Rescue. She was a bit chubby but has lost a few pounds and is now pretty close to her target weight. Wanda is housebroken, gets along with other dogs, rides great in a car, walks great on a leash and can use the doggie door. She loves to follow her foster mom around the house and snooze wherever she happens to be. If she likes you, she will give you her paw and loves to give kisses. Wanda is timid around men so it will take her some time to warm up and be comfortable. She would be a faithful companion for any family.
This 7-month-old kitten is sure to steal your heart. Crystal was named for her gorgeous crystal blue eyes. She is a Calico Point Siamese cat with a great personality.

For a teeny little girl Violet sure does have a lot of love to give. There’s pretty much nothing she doesn’t love. Her list of favorite things are: snuggling, playing with other dogs or a playful kitty, toys, going on walks, car rides, and hanging out with us humans at the local cafe. Violet is looking for a home with another young, playful dog, preferable close to her size. A home with daily walks and copious amounts of snuggle time are on Violet’s wish list, too. If you’re looking for a companion to join you on your travels up north to avoid the heat or trips to San Diego to enjoy the cooler weather, Violet is the dog for you. She is such a well behaved, easy going, loving gal.

“Play is good for our spirits, bodies, and minds. It teaches both dogs and humans to coordinate our efforts with others, to inhibit ourselves even when excited and to share the ball even when we want it for ourselves.”

An enormous “thanks” to Mark Siebel and Sam Kabbel for their excellent articles on basic dog training and behavior (AFN, July 24). Ahwatukee is definitely a “dog-friendly” village, so receiving great advice about our canine companions via our local paper is most welcome. I applaud AFN’s inclusion of such informative articles.

Miranda, a 2-year-old beautiful Torti cat, was rescued and is now looking for a new home. She may seem shy at first, but once she knows you, she will follow you, either rubbing up on your legs or to sit in your lap. She is playful, likes toys, and really enjoys sitting in a cat tree to watch the world. Miranda is good with other cats, older children, and perhaps dogs. She seems very adaptable to new situations and would make a great companion to anyone who can offer her a second chance at a new life.
We call it work. Our pets on the other hand, they consider the eight hours (and then some) we spend without them every given weekday something of indefinable proportions. This dark nebulous of time is known in the canine world as “the black hole.” At least that’s what I imagine they must call it judging by the unconstrained, no holds barred enthusiasm I’m greeted with the minute I walk through my front door. It’s the kind of greeting one would show a person they never expected to see again and even though it happens every day, they never cease to make me feel like the most important person on earth. This Friday, June 21, take your pet to that air-conditioned black hole and teach him the true value of a kibble.
Florange was abandoned by his owner and left to find food and water in a local neighborhood. He is an extremely sweet 1-year-old long haired orange tabby with beautiful gold eyes. He is playful and enjoys watching the world from a great perch such as a tall cat tree or windowsill. He could use more exercise as he has gained a bit of weight but with the right diet and playtime should slim down.
The Food and Drug Administration will now allow women age 15 and older to buy the emergency contraceptive Plan B over the counter. Unfortunately, there is no “Plan B” for dogs and cats who find themselves in trouble — and that’s why it’s vital to have them spayed or neutered as soon as possible.
Tapioca is a very sweet dog, but takes some time to warm up to people. However, once she does she is very personable and loves to follow you around as well as curl up right next to you on a couch or bed. She is very smart and seems to understand the concept of potty training and just could use some further reinforcement. She also loves toys, especially Kongs or anything involving chewing. Tapioca is looking for a loving home with a family who will treat her right. She needs a family who doesn’t mind her taking time building confidence and trust. If you give Tapioca a chance, she’ll be the best companion you’ve ever had. She is a very sweet and playful dog.
