"Good News" Magazine Aug '17 PP issue to publish online - Page 3

A Note From The Editor : We've been getting some calls lately, asking us if we're in our new location yet. Well, anyone who has ever moved knows that things always take longer than anticipated. Especially when you are a pack rat. Which I've discovered I am. Going through 24 years of papers and such is overwhelming. It feels good to purge, though. And it's fun to find things you nearly forgot all about. I uncovered the very first magazine we published shortly after putting The Bear on the air back in 1993. So now, for a few weeks, anyway, whenever I want to cuss out or throw my computer out the window (which is often), I'll remember how it was back in 1993. You actu- ally had to cut out words and letters and graphics and borders - with scissors or exacto knives - geez! Then they had to be made into an ad or article, glued onto a huge piece of graph paper, aligned on little blue lines, and FedEx'd to the printer. Unbelievable, how much we've come to take the convenience of computer technology for granted. Now we design everything online, then simply push a button to send it to be published. I wish we could do the same with mov- ing. But that still requires much angst and labor. So by the looks of things, we now hope to be in our new building, the former Trinity Lutheran Church in Avis, by mid-August. We hope you'll stop by and say "hello." And bring your dog, if you have one. Petting dogs is good thera- py, and I'm sure I'll need it! - Karyn Stratton In This Issue: Pet Calendar Of Events ............... . . . .... .. . . ..... ...... ......... page 2 Upcoming Pet Events ............. . .... . ..... . .......... .... .......... page 3 Microchipping By Dr. Sherri Cokefair .. . ................ .. . page 4 Around The Hydrant: News You Can Use . . ... . .. . . ... ... page 4 Health Highlights: Waterborne Risks & Illnesses . .... page 6 Cute & Crazy Critters .............. ........ ... .. .... ... ... .. .. ........ page 8 The Best Pet-Friendly Hotels ............. .. . ..... .............. page 9 Happy DOGust - Shelter Pets' Universal Birthday .. . page 10 Breed All About It - The Shih Tzu ............. ..... .. ... . . . ... page 11 Adoption: A Loving Option ............ ... ... .. ...... . . .. ......... pages 12, 13 Ask The Groomer - Calming An Anxious Dog ... . ... . page 14 Win A Scarf and Flea Shampoo For Your Dog ........ . page 14 Pawsitively Delicious - Pet Recipe . ... .. ........ . . .. .. .... .. .. page 14 Pet Pigs ...................................... . ... . ........ ..... ... .. ...... .. . page 16 Subscriptions - Let Us Fetch Your Next Copy . .... .. ... page 17 On our cover : “Sammy" Thanks to Angela Kay Caprio of sta Ca nea for providing us with his photo!
