He’s a small Terrier mix who lives big, as well-formed from head to toe as a bantam weight wrestler, and if you dare underestimate his 11.4 lbs. he’ll put a hold on your heart before you know it. Three-year-old Bing is a stray with every social skill —he’s polite, outgoing and interested, great with kids and cats, and downright adoring of other dogs; he loves to walk on a leash and is making good progress on his house-training. (Don’t bother to stop his tail from wagging, it’s impossible.) Bing’s handsome brown and white coat is a snap to care for, and if you look deep into his eyes you’re sure to see true-blue. Come see a takedown in the making — smiling Bing will pin you for the forever friend you are, and show you exactly how fun a 182-ounce sidekick can be.


She’s every bit as fiery as her name — and just as impossible to ignore — but our Wasabi’s so full of savory fun you’ll never get enough of her. “Playtime” is all the time in Wasabi’s book, with a little left over for snuggling and talking. At 4 months old she’s the cutest Spice Girl you’ll ever meet, an affectionate fluff-ball of long black hair, with an innocent face that belies her sweet mischief-making, and an excited purr that rocks her little body. Wasabi was found stray in Ninety Six, now she’s ready to devote herself to entertaining you endlessly; kids 10 and up are recommended. Come get a taste of how boredom-banishing a companion cat can be; you’ll adore her instantly, and she’ll prance happily into the play-space of your heart.

SWTOR: Dulfy gives everyone a breakdown of what to expect in patch 1.2

Dulfy went above and beyond to sift through the information from Bioware’s Guild Summit to give information on patch 1.2.

The patch is expected in early April, 2012.

“Hey everyone, I recently had the pleasure of attending the Guild Summit via livestreaming, where a host of panels were held discussing the upcoming patch 1.2 (scheduled to be released sometime in early April) and other new features/changes that are coming to SWTOR. There were quite a bit of information – the transcript of which I have captured here if you want to view all the details. In case you don’t feel like reading through pages of my notes, I have created a guide here summarizing all the important features you can expect for patch 1.2 and beyond!” -Dulfy

I, myself, cannot wait for the Legacy system updates.  The warzone changes will be nice as well.  I hope the changes will help with people quitting as soon as the other team scores a point in Huttball or captures 2 turrets in Civil War.

Red-nosed Pit Bulls are considered rather rare, but the Humane Society of Greenwood has a gorgeous mix right under your nose! Miss Eve is the perfect dog waiting oh so patiently for her forever home. You can often seen Eve stretched out resting contently in the yard as if she was Cleopatra overlooking her subjects. She is, after all, the Queen of all Things. She will gladly serve as a partner going on an adventurous walk or lie at your feet while you chill and watch TV. She is a beauty with a fire red coat and hazel eyes who will be sure to steal your heart as well as your gaze.


Pet orange tiger “Toaster” and even the expression on his face becomes warm, he fairly glows with pleasure; his green eyes close halfway and radiate bliss, and his mouth turns up in a contented little smile. This clean and handsome 2 year-old friend is feline-quiet affection personified; you’ll bask in his attention when he gives you a tender head butt, and adore him for his “low maintenance” manner, too. You see Toaster was a gentleman stray, and although he’s there when you need him, he would happily be your outside cat — one with lots of petting privileges, of course. Or bring him in and see what he’s been waiting to prove all along — he’s neat as can be — a tidier cat-man you won’t find — or a finer litter box. Warmth and appreciation go together, in Toaster’s view, and he’ll do everything he can to win your praise. He’s fine with other cats — dogs too — and he’s calm and patient with children. Come see Toaster and treat your fingertips to his soft, comforting companionship. He’ll wander silently into your heart, and you’ll want him around for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, too.

Pets of the Week March 5, 2012


Yes, of course she’s housetrained —she’ll sit on command too — but when you’re as wholesome and pleasing as the girl next door, those are minor accomplishments! Our small, beautifully mannered American Staffordshire Lou Anne is gently refined and affectionately civilized; she responds perfectly to your praise, more delicious to her than any treat. Lou Anne, a 6 year old little lady — healthy, cordial and intelligent — and looking lovely in her black and white coat. The kind soul who lost her will never stop missing her. Lou Anne’s delightfully fun with kids and great with other dogs and cats too; her niceness is as real as it is trustworthy. Come meet this smiling champion of the heart; she’ll make your family joyfully complete, and bring her carefully polished “company” manners, too.


He’s a gentleman so replete with Southern hospitality he comes with second helpings of himself — and 3rd and 4ths, too! Our gentle orange Big Boy’s so large he’s like the Louisiana Purchase, a vast territory of friendship, massively loving and infinitely delightful, ready to annex himself to that special person who values the beauty of a companion who’s waistline-challenged. At 7 years old Big Boy’s health is just fine, thank you, he eats special food to maintain his present figure; he was turned in by his owner and is looking for a home with grownups who’ll pet to him to hear his capacious purr; cats, big kids and mannerly dogs are fine too. Hold him in your lap and admire his pleasing girth and his clean, carefully groomed coat, then put him down and watch him drag his pillow around and hide under it like he’s a turtle with a shell. Big Boy’s just entertaining himself; he’s not shy at all, and he’s much cozier than a turtle. Come enjoy a buffet of friendship named Big Boy; you won’t find a more sincere sidekick anywhere, or more immeasurable fun.

Pets of the Week February 27, 2012


She’s as elegant as a long-legged runway model, but she prances instead of strutting, and her gleaming coat conceals a tender girlish shyness she overcomes quickly when you hold out your hand. Precious is a spritely 7-month terrier mix beauty, and at only 12 lbs. she’s as streamlined as joy gets — she may still grow a little but her gentle, happy heart will always be her biggest feature. Precious was found stray, but she’s too playfully affectionate not to have known human love somewhere — she’s great with other dogs and mature kids, is working on her housetraining, and would make delightfully attentive companion to you and your family. Come meet a shining example of how elegance can be low maintenance and why sweetness is always in style — then pick up our Precious girl and hold her next to your heart.


Five-month old Allie was found wandering in Ware Shoals with her brother; she’s playful and curious, a hunting wonder who’ll entertain you with her antics and then report for a soft snuggle-purr-head rub, so you don’t feel neglected. Allie’s destined to be a small cat but her adoration for you and your kids is mighty — she likes other cats and dogs too. Come trace her ancestors’ stripes with your finger tip and revel in her softness, then surrender yourself for the prey that you and take her home to make you wildly happy.
