And Now a Word from Violet

Hello everyone. I know you have all become accustomed of hearing from my dad the veterinarian, but for today’s column, I am taking over. First and foremost, I want to apologize for the absence of the column for the past few issues. See, my dads, Tony and Connnor, were in a car accident. It was pretty serious and it had me, Daisy, and Henry pretty worried. My dads were taken to the hospital and although they did not have to stay there, Connor was hurt pretty badly. He was in and out of doctor’s offices several times a week (and still goes to see the doctor, but much less so). Happily, he is much better now. So, I thought since Tony is still pretty busy, I would give a bit more of a break, and write down some important thoughts from my own big head or things that I overhear with my big ears. I hope you enjoy it.

I’m Gretchen, a sweet friendly (and some may say needy) little lady who just wants to be with people. I enjoy being held or carried and being dressed in sweaters to keep warm. I crave attention and in my foster home it was the cats who gave me lots of attention. I would sit with the kitties at dinner time and we would all eat together. I want to love my new family and be able to feel happy about having a safe place to spend the rest of my golden years. I am hoping it does not take me long to find a forever home… Do you want me to live with you?

A Tale of Two Couples

Lessons in estate planning

Roberto and Ian didn’t leave anything to chance. They ordered their movie tickets online in case the show sold out before they got to the theater. They always bought trip insurance, on the off chance their travel plans didn’t pan out. They flossed daily, replaced smoke-detector batteries annually, and changed their furnace filters every six months.

Arizona • Sun, Snow & Fun

Arizona, the home to the Grand Canyon, became a state on February 14th, 1912, and it was the last of the 48 coterminous United States to be admitted to the union. Originally it was part of New Mexico, but the land was ceded to the U.S. in 1848, and became a separate territory in 1863.
