Usually when you read or hear that a neighborhood has “gone to the dogs,” that’s a bad thing.  It implies decay, disinvestment, etc. But in Montgomery’s historic Garden District, it means the neighborhood is celebrating National Night Out with its annual Pups On Parade.  Last night was the sixth annual occurrence of this mile-long parade […]

This is a story about how we came to have custody of this tiny black kitten. Because he was the second one we captured, we are calling him “Two” for now, and (also because he was the second one we captured) he really needs to find a home. If you or someone you know might […]
