Pets of the Week January 7, 2019

RhondaRhonda is a princess, a worker, and a love bug rolled into one. This dappled-gray and white one-year-old Catahoula Leopard mix has both beauty and brains as well as a deep desire to please that is simply irresistible. Being a working breed, she has loads of energy, so she’s hoping for a home with a large fenced-in yard or at least the chance to take long walks consistently. Rhonda prefers the company of humans rather than that of other furry creatures, she loves treats, and is quite intelligent, so she should take to training easily. And when she’s done playing with her favorite toys, she’ll smooth in for a big hug and a long snuggle.

JillOne look at Jill, and you know right away that here is a cat who knows her own mind. And indeed she does. She is just over a year old, very self-assured, and simply lovely. A gorgeous brown Tabby with black highlights here and there, including on the bottoms of her feet, Jill is as pretty as she is affectionate. She adores attention from her humans, happily accepting scratches and cuddles and offering affection in return by way of head bumps, hugs, and a gentle purr. Jill does like her own space, however, when it comes to other critters and is hoping to find a home where she can receive ALL of the TLC.

Pets of the Week December 31, 2018

DenoThe first thing that pops into your mind when you meet Deno is that he is one silly pup. And he is. From his comical expressions to his innocently sweet personality, he is sure to make you laugh every day. Deno is a 1-year-old Black Labrador Retriever mix with a white chin and a strip of white down his chest. Being a young fellow, he has plenty of energy, seeming to love squeaky toys more than anything else. And, of course, he also wants to spend time with his people. He gets along well with other dogs, and is overall, just a wonderfully even-tempered pooch. Come meet Deno today.

MelissaIs your family missing something? Perhaps a special animal that wants nothing more than to curl up in your lap while you read or watch TV? If so, than look no further than Melissa. This gorgeous 1-year-old Calico is a gentle soul who’s grown out of that playful kitten stage, much preferring to simply relax in a favorite spot and be adored. Her orange, black, and white coat is truly magnificent, and her yellow-golden eyes radiate intelligence. Melissa likes having her humans all to herself, and she’s hoping that perfect someone is going to come along and treat her like the princess she is.

Pets of the Week December 24, 2018

FeFeWith a name like Fefe, you might be expecting a dainty, curly-haired little pooch, but don’t let appearances deceive you. This 2-year-old brown and white American Staffordshire Terrier mix might look tough, but she’s actually a real softy. She loves nothing more than cuddling in a lap, and she’d probably be delighted to get her nails painted and have pretty things to wear. Being a young dog, she can be quite energetic, but she’d much rather take a walk or settle on the couch to watch a movie than chase a tennis ball. Fefe seems to like male dogs, but wants to be the only queen in the castle. Come visit Fefe today. She’s sure to claim your heart.

RollyRolly is, without a doubt, one of the best cats you’ll ever have the pleasure of meeting. She is the girl next door, the pageant beauty, and the sophisticated queen all rolled into one. You can’t ask for more as this stunning 9-month-old, brown and white Tabby lays in your arms, softly purring and locking her golden eyes on you. She greets you with kindness, hoping for an ear scratch or a cuddle, but she’s never demanding and certainly accepts a sweet hello and gentle pet. You’ll want to meet this All-American girl, for she’s going to fill your home with wholesome goodness, royalty, and good old-fashioned love.

Aquaman

Had some misses in the middle. But a good Hero’s Journey. Very King Arthur.

Of the recent batch of Warner Brothers DC movies, it is second only to Wonder Woman. But it does meander some in the middle. I appreciated the way Arthur’s young life is sprinkled throughout the film in small bits.

Aquaman is set after the events of Justice League. There is a mid-credits scene, but it is not needed. It basically tells you what you expect. Remember, if you do not see the body, they are not dead.

Synopsis from IMDB:
Arthur Curry learns that he is the heir to the underwater kingdom of Atlantis, and must step forward to lead his people and be a hero to the world. And prevent war between land and sea.

Starring: Jason Momoa, Amber Heard, Willem Dafoe, Patrick Wilson, Nicole Kidman, Dolph Lundgren, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Temuera Morrison, Ludi Lin
