EDITION OF THURSDAY, APRIL 6, 2017 (PetPowellPress) We’ll call this “A Pair of Faces.”
Here’s what they look like side-by-side as they await their fates or maybe their fate at Dallas Animal services. We found their plight and the DAS plea on the Dallas Animal Services and Adoption Center Facebook site. Here’s the story: “Piston (A0986776) and Sayla (A0986778) came in to DAS together and we would love to them stay together - these sweet pups are about three years old, very friendly and just a joy to be around! If you can't adopt - please share!” We’ve shared. You know how to find them -- go to the shelter at I-30 and Westmoreland or go to dallasanimalservices.org and follow the directions to a successful adoption of two dogs that belong together.
A GIVING DAY AT OPERATION KINDNESS
AND THERE’S A PUNCHLINE WITH PUPS
On April 6 -- hey, that's Thursday! -- from midnight to midnight! -- Operation Kindness has a match for your money event asking members of the North Texas community to considerate making a donation to the no-kill shelter as part of a Day of Giving, to help save the lives of other homeless animals like a Waco German Shepherd named Amelia.
Our Operation Kindness publicity tipster Katie Mudd told this story briefly and betterly (that a word?) than I could, so I’ll let her point out how the no-kill shelter reached out -- and keep reading because it has a big punchline. The recent partnership “with a Waco animal shelter... helped save the life of Amelia, who suffered a broken leg and other injuries when she was hit by a car. The 2-year-old German Shepherd desperately needed medical attention. The medical team at Operation Kindness performed surgery that saved her left front leg, sutured multiple lacerations and tended to other issues. After taking two X-rays during her post-operative care, Amelia surprised the Operation Kindness team by revealing she was pregnant with nine puppies. Today Amelia and her puppies are happily living in forever homes." (OH, and you can adopt from OK, too!)
OUT AT THE LAKE ON SATURDAY!
From 10:30 a.m. to noon on Saturday on the shores of Cedar Creek Lake, there's a deal working for critters that need “affordable vaccinations/microchipping/more non-surgical services” -- it’s at the Friends of the Animal’s Spay/Neuter Clinic in Gun Barrel City and, our tipster the Legendary Friend Sydney Busch says, the Saturday clinic is “open to anyone, everywhere.” As you probably know, the Friends operate the world’s most successful spay/neuter clinic at Gun Barrel City. You can learn about the group at friendsoftheanimals.org. And they’re on Facebook HERE. Remember, the Friends can always use donations from people who don’t have animals. Or people who do have animals. Or people who think they might want to have an animal around the house. Heck, it’s like that clinic on Saturday -- donating is “open to anyone, everywhere.”
WINE ON THE ROOF AND YOU!

CONTEMPLATIONS: Is it me or has this week been more tiring than usual? Could it be that we still feel like we’re in the middle of a televised non-stop presidential election campaign? Geez, somebody call a time-out so we can all concentrate on the good things in the world. We’re not far away from senior prom and graduation season. The mum people are on the brink of windfall profits! ... Speaking of windfall profits, do you hear those commercials on the radio where some lawyer says he’s helped people settle their IRS bills, sometimes making it so that someone who owed a couple of hundred thousand dollars managed to wind up paying only $100. Miracle stories like that. As a guy who just finished writing a dramatic check to the IRS (You're welcome, America), I’m wondering if those people ought to have pitched in and paid what was due -- you know, like the rest of us. Or, am I foolishly bitter? ... Let’s talk advertising: I heard a Chevy dealer proudly discussing his environmentally sound products for sale on “Electric Avenue.” Anybody else remember when the now-vanished department store Montgomery-Ward rebranded it’s electronics department “Electric Avenue.” Here’s a song to jog your memory. And what about the current TV commercial pitching Kelloggs cereal with help from one of Warren Zevon’s greatest hits? The commerial is HERE. To enjoy the classic without a TV commercial that tortures a fish and makes crunching sounds inexplicably to a werewolf song, click HERE.
