Pets of the Week May 21, 2018

Anastasia is just as beautiful and regal as her name suggests. Very gentle and well-mannered, she greets everyone with a friendly smile and a wag of the tail. She’s proven herself to be quite the lady around children and adults alike, although she’d prefer not to share her humans with other animals. If she were to accept another dog into her life, it would need to be a larger, very calm male who would allow her to occupy the throne. Anastasia is a 3-year-old Pit mix with a white coat accented with large patches of brown, including over her right eye and a quarter-sized spot on her left cheek, reminiscent of Marilyn Monroe’s famous beauty mark. She loves toys and is hoping for a home with a large yard where she can race around like a graceful greyhound.

Are you seeking a feline companion with whom you can discuss your day and express your thoughts without distracting interruptions and questions? If so, Watson is your man. This handsome 8-month-old orange and white cat is sweet, affectionate, and extremely friendly without being intrusive. He will happily climb into your lap and lean into your chest for comfort and contact, then wander off for a bit before coming back to rub his head on your hand or chin. All the while he will continue to listen quietly to all you have to say, responding with a gentle purr and deep gaze. He has a very mellow and kind nature, and given the opportunity, he will be more than content to be the Watson to your Sherlock.

Pets of the Week May 14, 2018

This little Hound mix has a super-duper sweet smile, long stylish legs, a sleek coppery-brown coat, and a wonderfully loving personality, basically making her one of the most adorably adoptable dogs around. Wren is just over a year old, so she hasn’t completely given up her puppy status. In fact, one of her favorite things to do is run around the yard with her best canine pal, playing with toys for a little while, then abandoning them to simply enjoy the chase. She’s great with kids as well and always seems delighted to meet new people and animals. So if you have the time and space to give this energetic pup a loving family, swing by the Adoption Center and ask about the delightful Wren.

Jenny is a petite princess with big green eyes and a lovely coat accented with gorgeous dark brown markings on her face. This 6-month-old Tabby is quite calm for such a young cat. She likes attention and will charm you with a gentle purr, as long as you give her time to settle in slowly. And once she finds her forever home, she’s hoping her new family will provide her with a little hideaway bed that will allow her to snuggle in her own private space. Jenny gets along with other kitties, but because she’s more of a follower than a leader, she will do best with furry siblings that aren’t too bossy. Come by the Adoption Center today to meet this little angel.

Pets of the Week May 7, 2018

Reese is just as sweet as the candy after which he’s named. His handsome brown coat is accented with touches of tan on his muzzle, eyebrows, and feet, like little dollops of peanut butter on a chocolatey treat. Reese is about 9 months old, so he’s still full of puppy energy, which he loves to use up playing with other dogs, tossing around his favorite toys, and if he has access to some water, splashing around with a big grin on his face. This lovable Retriever mix is sure to melt your heart, especially when he smooths in for a quick snuggle and a few kisses. Drop by the Adoption Center today to meet this irresistible pup.

This kitty has an exotic-sounding name and an alluring personality that is sure to captivate all who meet her. Elektra is a slim beauty, a brown and white Tabby with huge yellow-green eyes, a pretty, slender face, and large, perfectly formed ears with tiny tufts at the very tips. She’s only seven months old, so she enjoys playing with her toys, and she rarely says no to a tasty treat. But the best thing about lady Elektra is her sweet, affectionate disposition. She loves to be petted and scratched and allowed to rub her head under your chin. Other cats are welcome to join her social group but she seems especially fond of her humans. Swing by PetSmart today to meet this fabulous feline.

Avengers: Infinity War

Avengers: Infinity War brings together the world we were introduced to in 2008 with Iron Man.

Characters from all but one movie are weaved in and out of the story. We get some funny. Some sad. Some angering. Some real sad.

If you have read the Infinity Gauntlet story, you have an idea where this story is headed.

I cannot stress enough that you should watch this in the theater.

I have watched this two times so far and the emotional beats hit me both times.

Watching Dr. Strange interact with Iron Man and Spider-Manwas a high light. But the true team-up to end all team-ups: Thor, Rocket Raccoon, and Groot (teenage version).

Avengers: Infinity War is a long movie. And it is weaving several simultaneous story beats. From a fight in Wakanda to one on Titan to Knowhere. But none of the story elements drag on or are shorted. And all are needed for plot.

There is only one post-credit scene at the end of a very long list of contributors. It is not essential, but a nice easter egg for a future movie.

I am amazed that Marvel Studios has been able to create a series of movies tied to each other with various themes that work together as well as they do. Not all of their movies have been huge hits (Iron Man 2, Thor 2 – imo) But they have all had a certain level of quality. This may have come at the expense of some directors’ creativity, but Marvel Studios has not let me down yet.

Starring: … Practically everyone from previous MCU movies. Check out IMDB for the full list.

Pets of the Week April 30, 2018

Cocoa is a big, sweet-tempered love bug who’s more than happy to prove that no matter how much you weigh, you can still snuggle. She’s a 2-year-old milk chocolate-colored Retriever-Terrier mix with a huge grin that hardly ever leaves her face and a tail that rarely stops wagging. She loves toys, especially ones she can chew up, and she’s hoping to find a canine companion who’s as big and strong and playful as she is. Cocoa is one of the Humane Society of Greenwood’s Teddy Bear Terriers, a fun, cuddly name created to show the true sweet inner nature of Pitbulls and Pit mixes. She recently went through heartworm treatment, but that never affected her loving, kind personality one bit. Don’t you need a Teddy Bear Terrier in your life?

This regal kitty is named after Nefertari, the Egyptian Queen. The name means “The Beautiful Companion,” which is perfect for this sweet, loving, 2-year-old brown and white tabby. Nephie is a quiet girl, a little bashful at first, but quick to warm up to those she meets, showing off her affectionate nature by rubbing her head under your chin and settling in for cuddles. She prefers a somewhat peaceful environment rather than a rambunctious one. That being said, when she’s in the mood, she’s more than happy to show off her playful side. Nephie seems to be relaxed around children and other cats, so she should be content in a variety of home situations. Adopt this royal beauty today.
