Winter has arrived with the threat of frostbite and hypothermia.  Our client Tim arrived for his dog’s morning appointment with a stray cat in tow.  Upon starting his truck a large cry alerted Tim to the cats presence underneath the hood.  This feline had escaped harm from the trucks engine but not from the ravages

The invasion of the grackles into our garden is the true herald of spring.  Plump robins abound to Amigo Habernero’s delight.  His specialty was pelican chasing on the beaches of Cuba.  Now gulls and robins keep his greyhound figure trim.  Our neighbor was reminiscing his finding Amigo barking on our garage roof.  This Cuban athlete should have played in the

With the holidays approaching it’s a season for giving and gratitude. Last fall the time had arrived to hang the outdoor Christmas lights so I corralled the canine Buddies into the house with our six indoor cats. An hour into the task Chili Pepper and Amigo Habernero made an appearance at the gate.  As the
