Walk ‘n Wag, on October 6, is one of my favorite events of the whole year. I love that having so much fun with our dogs helps raise money for the Montgomery Humane Shelter to help other dogs. I love seeing my friends out in the sunshine at the Blount Cultural Park with their dogs. […]

Regardless of the warm temperatures outside, it’s fall in Midtown Montgomery. The calendar says Mid-October to be exact, and that means a busy time of football games, homecoming dances, fall festivals, and Halloween events. The later lets us have fun getting scared and even raise money for causes we love. The Montgomery Humane Society’s Haunted […]

Our Dog’s Sunday

We’d been saving newspaper for about six weeks, and it was time to take it to the shelter. Sometimes the stack of newspaper gets large enough that you worry about the perceptions that visitors might have. The shelter always wants newspaper to line the puppy cages with, so we loaded up the dog (because she […]

It takes a lot of hubris to describe an event as an “Ego Trip for a Good Cause,” but local comedian Rudy Banes is both self-promoting and dangerously funny. He’s also poking a bit of fun at an era of self-serving philanthropy. Besides, it’s not all a solitary exercise in noble vanity. Banes is sharing […]

Just over two years ago, we adopted a dog from the Montgomery Humane Society. She brought all kinds of joy and lots of companionship while providing a useful amount of good-natured provocation for our cat. A few months into our new relationship, we noticed that she was scratching her ears. A lot. She made a […]

The Season for Giving

The Season for Giving

There’s a lot of talk about charity around the holidays, and a lot of giving happens right before the end of the year. We’d like to think that some of that isn’t just for tax purposes. Really, charity and compassion ought to be year-round pastimes. But there’s still something nice about creating a holiday glow […]

Pet Enrichment in Midtown

Pet Enrichment in Midtown

By on 21 September, 2011 in Fun, Outdoors, Parks, Pets with 0 Comments

Pets are adorable creatures, by and large. The presence of puppies or kittens often elicits reflexive ooooohs and aaahhhs (or the newest slang, “sqeeee”). Yet, pet ownership is a serious matter with lasting consequences throughout the animal’s life. Certainly, pet ownership is not for everyone. According to the National Council on Pet Population Study & […]

Barking for a Park … Our Own Way

If you followed the PetSafe “Bark for Your Park” $100,000 grant giveaway contest, you no doubt have heard that Montgomery came in fourth in the voting with 26,000 ballots cast. Huntingdon, West Virginia — with a population of just 50,000 residents — managed to pile up an amazing 87,854 votes and walk away the victor. […]
