Jordan is an adorable 8-year-old Jack Russell terrier who wins the hearts of everyone he comes in contact with, humans and canines alike. Jordan likes to be held and enjoys warming laps; add belly rubs to the mix and you will have one happy dog on your hands. He loves to play and if it involves tennis balls, he will play fetch for hours. Jordan loves being outside; he’ll stand facing the sun with the wind in his face. Walks are huge on his list, which isn’t a problem because he has impeccable leash manners and does great during car rides. You’d never know Jordan is deaf and probably has been for a long time, for it doesn’t stop him from enjoying each day to the fullest. This smart guy is doing great learning sign language — he’s already mastered sit, down and will come in from outside when you flick a light on and off. He is also house-trained. Jordan is the perfect package — a fun, affectionate, easygoing dog with a big personality. If interested in learning more about Jordan, please fill out an application at www.azrescue.org.
If you believe your appearance is important and if you are concerned about looking your best with minimal down time, if any, perhaps you may want to consider Botox cosmetic surgery. Botox therapy is not a filler substance like Juvederm or Restylane. It does not directly affect the skin.

Big Mac is a big hunk of a dog and everyone that meets him just loves him. He’s said to be an American bulldog/mastiff mix about 5 years old. He had been adopted a year or so ago but recently returned due to trying to put the family’s pet tortoise in his belly. Thankfully, Big Mac was unsuccessful, and the tortoise lives to tell the tale.

The general consensus seems to be that this has been a disappointing summer movie season. That either means that the standards of moviegoers are going up or they’ve just become spoiled brats. Come on, people. “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” and “Godzilla” might not have been blockbuster masterpieces, but for what they were, they did provide perfectly solid entertainment. The same cannot be said about “Transformers: Age of Extinction.” Now that the latest from Michael Bay is in the mix, the summer movie season must be graded on a curve.
Once you’ve made the decision to buy a home, it’s time to review your credit standing. If you don’t, you can be sure your lender will when you apply for a mortgage. It’s a good idea to know what you’re working with before you fill out your mortgage application. That way, you have some time to establish, improve or repair your credit standing. Exactly where you stand will help determine whether you are approved for a mortgage and, if so, the interest rate you will be charged.
Throughout your career, you have been working hard to save in one or more retirement accounts. Then, once you retire, you’ll have some new decisions to make. But one choice has already been made for you: the age at which you must start taking withdrawals, or “distributions.” It’s a good idea to familiarize yourself with these distribution rules because they can have a big impact on your retirement income. And you may even want to take action before the end of the year.
Summer is here in all its brutality. Reptiles sun themselves and mammals seek shade. Life takes considerable effort now, as it does during an East Coast winter. Nighttime gives no respite.
There’s nothing more important in the world to you than your family. However, your family-owned business probably helps support your family. So when it comes to protecting both your family and your business, you need to carefully consider your moves.
Along with the happiness and fun pets bring to our lives comes the responsibility of providing a lifetime of care and well-being. Caring for a family pet should be a family job. Children can and should participate in the care of a family pet. Helping with the routine care of a family pet can enable children to become self-reliant and learn about responsibility. One way to make pet care an educational and fun family project is to set up a token economy. This can also help children learn to count, add, subtract, and the basics of making a budget.
