EDITION OF TUESDAY, MARCH 14, 2017 (PetPowellPress) -- Ah, here we go with a very special Tuesday. This is -- and you can look it up -- National Pi Day.
Some of you math-friendly kids get the connection. For those of you who, like me, are still mystified by fractions and algebra, pi is 3.14.
CONGRATULATIONS TO THE BOXERS
We’re a bit proud to type this -- Legacy Boxer Rescue is celebrating its 13th birthday.
Yep. A rescue group that has lasted 13 life-saving years! And we've seen 'em at work, saving animals, finding homes, keeping the animals in good spots until better and best spots turn up.
One of the wonderful things about this group begun by Sharon Sleighter and some pals is the mission-sensitive URL -- www.savetheboxers.com. Can you beat that for clever web-siting, asked the guy who uses readlarrypowell.com? So on Sunday the 19th, from noon to 5 p.m., the Legacy folks will be gathering at Haymaker Dallas, 1520 Greenville Ave., to celebrate that 13th birthday. There’s a “great covered spot outside” so you can bring “your social pups.”
The most amazing thing is the prize of beer for the birthday. Two bucks for Corona and Corona Lites. [LARRY ASIDE: At that price, you know the place isn’t owned by the Dallas Cowboys, Texas Rangers or Dallas Mavericks.] T here’ll be a silent auction and raffle. Oh, and in case you need a young Boxer, this guy is available. He’s Hashtag. Perfect companion. Look at that face.
KODA NEEDS A HOME
Dinesha Schmidt of A Different Breed was contracted by Kenzie Huynh of Dogs of HIlltown who is trying to hep someone place this girl, Koda, the Rottie/Shepherd Mix. The owner is leaving Texas and “will leave this girl in a shelter if needed.”
[LARRY ASIDE: That’s not really an “if needed” situation, is it. The dog needs a home. Does that dog not look perfectly natural next to the TV table? What a happy face!]
She’s a year old, spayed, got a good shot record and is “great with kids, other pets.” The contact point is Kenzie at 469-586-9363. Email KenzieH.DOH@gmail.com.
DOGS AT DAS
You’ve seen this photo of Pitura (A0983693) here before. She’s two years old and had six puppies at the shelter.
The email subject lines was: “Help ❤Sweetest mamma ever with her rolly poly puppies at DAS DALLAS TX❤.”
The reminder note about Pitura we got came from animal advocate Kimberly Jones and carried this message: “DAS IS KILLING A LOT. HELP.”
You can help by rescuing and adopting animals at dallasanimalservices.org.
And, in case you wondered, this is the Sunday stat sheet from DAS. Killed two dozen dogs.
If it happened anywhere else, people would be up in arms.
But the City of Dallas applies the sad old Texas theory of animal management: “Got an animal problem? Let’s kill it.”
FRITZ NEEDS A HOME
Well, heck, here’s a pup in a fix. We learned about him from Debra Myers.
She wrote, “This gorgeous boy needs a rescue or home! Meet Fritz...he's about nine years old, about 100 pounds and not vetted or neutered.
"Poor Fritz has been used for breeding his whole life. When his owner had no more use for Fritz...he dumped him.
"The person caring for Fritz adores him, but cannot keep him. She works 10-11 hour days and feels terrible that he is alone in the back yard all the time. She has agreed to cover all the necessary vetting. I've reached out to a couple of German Shepherd rescue groups, but no luck. Please help me find this poor soul a loving home!
“P.S. Fritz is just crazy about that tennis ball. He loves to play catch!!
To offer to help this handsome fellow, call 940-367-4627 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
CONTEMPLATIONS: We believe in theater. We believe in live radio theater. Therefore, we believe in Pegasus Theatre, the legendary Dallas stage company.
As you can see from the artwork, something fun is opening Thursday. The RadioVizion (TM) production of Another Murder, Another Show! runs March 16-25 at Bath House Cultural Center in Dallas. Written by Kurt Kleinmann and directed by Raymond Banda, it’s a murder mystery performed as if it were a live radio production. This features the characters made famous by Pegusus “Living Black & White” (TM) productions on stage -- “Harry Hunsacker, would-be actor turned would-be detective, and Nigel Grouse, Harry’s paid-by-the-hour assistant and friend.” The show “does not employ the trade-secret (Living Black & White) makeup but instead focuses on evoking the experience and glamour of being in a live radio studio of the 1930’s and 1940’s. Live sound effects, actors at period-style live microphones and costumes suggestive of the era complete the effect.” All shows are at 8 p.m. -- tickets are $10 on Thursdays, $15 on Fridays and Saturdays. Get tickets at the door or at “brownpapertickets” HERE.
... WHAT ABOUT THE CATS? We have an off-and-on gang of feral cats who live around our front porch. When I rolled into the driveway Monday evening the came racing off the porch and they were yowling like they needed something. They did. Food. Time change got ‘em. You can’t explain the time change to a cat. ... Dogs all understand the time change. And I am dancing with the Radio City Music Hall Rockettes come Christmas. The net stockings are binding but the heels make my calves look powerful.
