Missy is an incredibly adorable, scruffy Terrier Mix who is sweet and affectionate. Shy at first, she warms up quickly, especially if treats are involved. It turns out Missy loves attention from her people and is so appreciative of the love and kisses you give her. She enjoys being held, being pet, cuddling on the couch, and once in a while will even find her way into your lap. Missy reciprocates your affection by giving some kisses of her own. Being less than a year old, Missy is very playful. Combine that with a terrier’s natural curiosity and you get an active dog that is happy to share all the adventures that life has to offer with her people. Missy rides well in the car, does fine on a leash, and loves to go on walks. She has a very cute habit of “walking herself” by walking with her leash in her mouth so she can feel like she is running the show. When she is being walked with other dogs, she’ll even take their leashes in her mouth so she can “walk them” as well. Missy likes just about any dog she’s ever met, giving kisses, engaging them in playtime and wrestling matches, and of course “walking” them. She would do best in a home with another canine brother or sister so she can watch and learn what it is like to be a happy dog and continue to enjoy life’s simple pleasures. Missy is cautious of fast movements and loud noises so she will need a family that is willing to give her the time she needs to feel comfortable and to let her know she is safe. Missy is looking forward to the day she has a family to love and call her very own.
It took only six words to propel me firmly into The Sandwich Generation. Notably, those words were not “I’d like fries with that, please.”
If President Obama negotiates a massive new trade bill but doesn’t tell the general public about it, can it still go into effect? Can it still deplete our jobs and prosperity, the way past trade agreements like NAFTA and the recent Korean trade agreement have? Can it still lead to a destructive trade deficit?

Those darn zucchini! There’s an army of them occupying your garden right now and each one is as big as a blimp.
I grew up with a lot of religious rules. To violate these rules was to subject oneself to the judgment of God. If you had a fundamentalist upbringing, you may be familiar with some of these restrictions. No drinking, no smoking, no dancing, no playing cards or going to the movies, no mixed-bathing (a prospect that intrigued my teenage mind), no Sabbath-breaking (though we did not actually gather on the Sabbath), and absolutely no questioning of religious authority.
It’s back-to-school time again. If you have young children, you might be hustling them to the store for backpacks and binders. But if you fast-forward a few years, you can envision driving your kids a little farther — to their college dorms. And when that day comes, you’ll want to be financially prepared. So you’ll want to avoid making costly mistakes when preparing for, and paying, those big bills. Here are some of the most common of these errors:

The Mountain Pointe offensive playbook has always been fluid under Norris Vaughan.
I’ve seen it multiple times, but it never fails to amaze me just how fragile our lives, as well as all the stuff of our lives really are. One of the summer storms bouncing around the Valley at this time of year brought wind and rain ripping through our church campus. It tore up trees and threw around the roof tiles like a 2 year old in full tantrum mode. The storm was all over and done in the space of about 10 minutes, yet restoring some semblance of order took several days. The emotional impact of the scene of devastation, and the physical work also took its toll, even as we give thanks that no one was injured.
Brandon Clarke isn’t one of those basketball recruits that started getting noticed early in his career after a big showing at a club tournament or on the AAU circuit.

To answer Bill Richardson’s two main questions, “Do we keep Democrat Congresswoman Kyrsten Sinema to represent us or do we elect someone else?” And, “Are Rogers and Walter the best Republicans can come up with to challenge Sinema in CD 9?”
With the start of a new school year fast approaching (at least in Arizona), I wanted to take a moment to address a critical skill that most students fail to practice. It’s called mindset and believe it or not, it’s equally important to student success as the letter grades they will receive at the end of the first quarter.

You can almost smell it like a monsoon in the distance. It might not be on the horizon just yet, but there is something in the air that lets us know football season is almost upon us.
