Sam the un-bossy Doxie

Hi All, I'm Sam. I've been at the shelter for a month, cause my former mom said I was bossy. I'm a Doxie, so duh. Doxie is German for "large and in charge." Anyway, I am in foster care now with Denise, and she said I am not bossy in the least. I immediately got along with Jenna the dog and Katy the TOTALLY BOSSY Chihuahua. I ignored the two kitties, and found a wonderful bed on the floor. I politely tell you when I have to go outside to do my business, and I love watching TV from the sofa. I will gladly accompany you on a walk, and I don't bark unless there's a darn good reason. Do you want a great doggie companion? Come meet me at 15855 Banner Quaker Hill Rd. I'm only 3 1/2, so I plan to live a long happy life with my next family. I'd love to meet you. By the way, I have a quirk. I actually smile! Denise will try to get a picture of me smiling. It's pretty funny.

OOOPS, The union had a typo

The cost of Cinco De Mayo at Stonehouse is $25, not $2. Still, a great cause~

Water off tomorrow/Cinco De Mayo

HI all,
Don't forget, NID is turning off water Wed am for work.
Did you know that the Stonehouse at foot of Broad/Boulder has been a culinary/restaurant school for the past 2 years. The idea is to teach foster kids the trade, so they are employable when they "age out" of the system. What a great idea. Anyway, this Thurs. they are hosting a Cinco De Mayo dinner starting 6PM. $2 donation at door, and buy your authentic Mexican food to celebrate! Sounds like fun, and what a great cause. The statistics on how many foster children enter a world of poverty due to lack of education after age 18 is shocking. So, you can help by attending this event and extending your support. See you there!
I guess every one is in a "clearing" mode with this great weather. The chain saws are buzzing, I see delivery trucks bringing soil and lumber, etc. Looks like we're all in the mood to clear and beautify. It's important to get all the fallen trees/branches cut and burned or stored to reduce fire danger this summer. Hope all the "vacation home" people will join in soon. Those who live here stay very concerned through the summer/fire season months. We all need to do our part to keep the Shores firesafe. That means tackle that cleanup asap. The county chipper is driving around chipping the stuff you have neatly stacked (stems out towards road). Take advantage!
On that note, if you need help, there is one person on our service provider list who will gladly tackle your yard work. Dusty Hudson is listed. Give him a call! Nice kid, and he works for $12 an hour, and always does a great job. There are 2 tree people listed. Hire local! It save them gas and travel time, and they can give you a great deal.
