Pets of the Week February 11, 2019

SimonSimon says, “Come to the shelter to find your new best friend.” Simon says, “Pick me.” You have to do what Simon says, right? This 18-month-old black lab mix LOVES being outside, whether it’s chasing a favorite toy or walking politely on leash around the grounds, and he’s practically begging to be someone’s hiking buddy. He’s good with other dogs, and he adores his human companions. He longs for closeness and is eager to prove that he’s both affectionate and intelligent. Most of all, he’s hoping to play a game of Simon Says with his new family very soon.

ShastaShasta is just as pretty as a daisy with a personality to match. She’s a lovely 1-year-old brown Tabby with dazzling golden-orange eyes that will immediately grab your attention. But this pretty kitty’s appeal is more than fur deep. She is cheerful and fun-loving with a great fondness for toys and stuffed animals with which she can snuggle when she’s finished with playtime. Shasta also welcomes pets and scratches, so she’s likely to spend plenty of time curled up in your lap. Ask to meet this special feline before someone else claims her.

Pets of the Week February 4, 2019

AudreyGet ready to meet the love of your life, for the moment you lay eyes upon Audrey, you’ll know she is THE ONE. Laid back, gentle, always polite, and delighted just to be in your presence, Audrey is a sensational dog. She’s 5 years old, so you don’t have to worry about her being overly hyper. She does love walks, however, and will happily accompany you on any and all outings. Audrey also enjoys the company of other dogs as well as children. And she’s quite beautiful – a medium-sized brindle and white terrier mix with soulful brown eyes. Everyone else has fallen for her quiet charms, and so will you.

AsiaAsia is looking forward to being that special feline companion to someone who will love her for the exquisite princess that she is. She’s a solid white beauty with big golden eyes that radiate intelligence and just a touch of sauciness. She is perfectly confident, knowing without a doubt who she is and what she wants, and she’s more than happy to tell you herself. Asia is a sweet young lady, but like many of her species, she prefers attention in her own time. When she wants love and affection, she’ll come and get it. She’s about 3 years old, so she’s moved past the childishness of kitten hood and settled comfortably into self-assured maturity.

Polar

Interesting tale of a retired hitman and the lengths his former employer will go to to keep from paying out his pension. A group of young hitmen going after the grizzled retiree shows a nice examination between experience and training.

It is a nice alternative to the John Wick series. The fight scenes are not as frenetic as John Wick, but still enjoyable.

When Dominic visits a school and gives a talk to a group of children is one of my favorite scenes. He shows then knife techniques and photos of a 3 day old corpse.

It does set itself up for a sequel.

Starring: Mads Mikkelsen, Vanessa Hudgens, Katheryn Winnick, Fei Ren, Ruby O. Fee, Matt Lucas, Robert Maillet, Anthony Grant, Josh Cruddas, Lovina Yavari

Synopsis (from IMDB): The world’s top assassin, Duncan Vizla, is settling into retirement when his former employer marks him as a liability to the firm. Against his will, he finds himself back in the game going head to head with an army of younger killers.

Glass

Disappointing.

That sums up his movie for me. As much as I loved Unbreakable, this movie was just sad and ended on a weak note.

I liked how it started with Dunn hunting the Beast. I liked it all until they are both arrested and sent to an asylum.

We get the twist reveal of a secret society that eliminates powered people (whether good or bad) to maintain the status quo.

So … all 3 of our characters get killed at the end by this shadow group.

Just felt like a waste of time and money.

Starring: James McAvoy, Bruce Willis, Samuel L. Jackson, Anya Taylor-Joy, Sarah Paulson, Spencer Treat Clark, Charlayne Woodard

Synopsis (from IMDB): Security guard David Dunn uses his supernatural abilities to track Kevin Wendell Crumb, a disturbed man who has twenty-four personalities.

Pets of the Week January 28, 2019

ClaraThere’s something special about an older dog. They’re calmer and quieter with eyes that express the wisdom of their years. Clara is a prime example. This 8-year-old Blue Tick Hound’s deep brown eyes radiate kindness and offer a glimpse into an experienced soul. Despite her senior status, she’s still a hound, which means she loves an adventure and will happily explore wherever she finds herself. Clara gets along with everyone – adults, children, dogs, and cats alike. She’s a loving, gentle girl who’s hoping someone special is going to welcome her into their home for the rest of her life.

MiriumMirium is just as sophisticated and ladylike as you would expect her to be with such a time-honored name. She’s only a year old, so quite young, but she shows a wisdom beyond her years as she expresses little interest in chasing around toys, much preferring to sit quietly and simply be adored. And Mirium’s beauty lives up to her name as well – she’s a gorgeous dilute Tortoiseshell, mostly gray, accented throughout with a creamy orange. And her large, bright green eyes are nothing short of mesmerizing. Come meet lady Mirium today.
