Pets of the Week July 10, 2017

Rushing to and fro or climbing up and down, little bitty Hershey is a big happy clown! A bundle of playful energy, Hershey is as sugary sweet and delightfully pleasing as his name. This 3 month is oh, so handsome with a perfectly marbled dark and milk chocolate classic tabby coat. A risk-taker and lover of adventure, Hershey loves to pounce on trespassing stuffed mice, play soccer with kitty toys, and Wrestlemania the day away with his buddies. Yet when the fun comes to a close, he loves to curl up in your arms and purr himself to sleep. There’s no denying – it’s impossible not to dote on this fun-filled little guy!

She may boast a medium sized frame, but Trisha has an enormous heart and expressions that speak volumes. This spunky little mixed breed gal is the first to pass out kisses and sprawl across your lap in total adoration. When she’s not engrossed in charming your socks off, Trisha loves to curl up with a good chew toy, frolic throughout the yard, or tell you all about her daily activities. Trisha is all about being with you and showing her love, so if you’re looking for your new best pal, she’s the perfect choice!

Pets of the Week July 3, 2017

As Camp Good Dog’s “class flirt,” Sonny knows how to schmooze anyone and everyone to get attention. What does he want? A belly rub, of course! This active and playful guy enjoys sprinting around the yard like an Olympic-hopeful. When he’s finished a lap or ten he flops on his back with theatrical coyness wanting someone to take the bait and tickle his tummy. He’s an all-around happy dog who is great with adults and children alike. Want a dog who will add youthful energy to your life? Visit Sonny and see if he’s the dog for your home.

Have you ever watched a kitten play like he’s in WWE? Well, you can with Simba. Don’t be deceived by his calm look. This gray Tabby boy is all about tussling and tumbling with any kitten, cat, or toy opponent he can land on. This rough ‘n ready guy likes other cats and, for their sakes, they should be strong and steady and able to hold their own. Simba does have his sweet little boy side and occasionally will chatter and talk with anyone within earshot. Like the element of surprise? SIMBA!

Pets of the Week June 26, 2017

Chapman is a focused athlete, designed to be a running, hiking, or walking buddy. Having a large, fenced-in yard for this lean running machine would be best for keeping him at home base and allowing him the exercise to be happy. Independent and intelligent by nature, he’s a dog of few words, preferring the polite greeting, a kiss or a treat, then it’s time to go on a run. Forming a bond with his new family will enable Chapman’s personality and charm to come out.

Esmeralda, meaning emerald, is probably the most considerate cat you will ever meet. This black and brown Tabby finds napping in a nook and curling in a corner to be her “Chicken Soup For The Soul.” She enjoys being pet and receiving quiet affection because what else is there to do for a lazy, laid-back cat? Her bright yellow eyes speak truer about her kindness than any written words. This tiger-striped cat is unique in every way and one that any cat-lover would want as a friend.

ESMERALDA HAS BEEN ADOPTED!!!

Pets of the Week June 19, 2017

Handsome, regal, and steady, Phillip bears many similarities to the Norwegian Forest cat. It’s easy to visualize he once was a great cat king and now his time is spent in relaxed and reflective retirement. He often sits and looks out the windows as if surveying his kingdom or perhaps he imagining that he’ll soon be in a new home. Phillip goes with the flow seeing no need to create problems that don’t exist. Other cats and dogs are of no concern to him or he can handle anything. He’s a cat who’s more than a cat.

Luke is the kind of dog who makes you shake your head and chuckle. His individuality stems from being a Chihuahua and Dachshund mix who’s IQ is above average. Some say he has a “Napoleon complex,” but it’s more accurate that it’s a “Luke complex.” This little guy has a huge personality and a genuine love for people. His happy energy and “I’m glad to see you!” grin are irresistible and if you lean in close enough, he’ll give you a big smooch on the chin. Luke is a Camp Good Dog for Kids graduate where he learned he’s still always in charge.

It Comes at Night



It Comes at Night is an emotionally and paranoia-driven thriller. The trailer is a bit misleading. It makes you think there are creatures that attack during the night (zombies? infected people?), but that is not the case. There is a disease running throughout the country and an isolated family is working to stay safe.

The movie opens with this family having to deal with the grandfather who is beginning to show signs of infection. Later someone attempts to break in looking for supplies. He, his wife and child are eventually invited to stay.

The story continues on with the new members integrating into the family and their chores. Everything is going fine until the 17-year old son finds the entrance open one night.

The consequences of this discovery show just how far people will go for their family when pushed into a corner.

The final scene is still sitting with me.

A word of warning – this is a slow-burn movie.

Starring: Joel Edgerton, Christopher Abbott, Carmen Ejogo, Riley Keough, Kelvin Harrison Jr., Griffin Robert Faulkner, David Pendleton
