Summer's the perfect time for a family vacation, but what do you do when your four-footed family member isn't welcome at the hotel, camp site or a relative's house? You'll need to decide whether or not Fido will be hanging out at home or boarded while you're gone.
I am an early riser. I guess I've always liked to get up before the crack of dawn, brew a pot of coffee, let the dogs out and read the morning news all in the peace and quiet of a home and neighborhood still fast asleep.
JACK RUSSELL WANTS TO MELT YOUR HEART AND LICK YOUR FACE
I may be small, but I like my kisses super-sized. Just like Clark Gable, I'm a gentleman. Sure, I'm only 2 or 3 years old, but I have lots of experience being a good boy on walks and while playing - indoors and out. Folks say that my eyes are my best feature - wouldn't you like to stare into them? I may be your Puppy Soul Mate!
Anyone who has ever tried it will tell you that starting your own business is a scary proposition. Most waged their own private war with doubt. Am I doing the right thing? I know I have a valuable service, but how do I let the community know about it? Is there a niche for my business here in Santa Clarita? Those are fair questions - questions every local budding entrepreneur and businesses owner should ask, must ask, really. And they do.
SWEET 7-YEAR-OLD SEEKING SPECIAL PERSON TO KISS IN THE PARK
Me: I'm Annie! I love to run, roll around in the grass and give lots and lots of kisses. I've had it kinda rough, so it takes me a little while to get to know you, but once I do, I'm yours forever. You: Not afraid of my pit bull mix breed (I'm a lover, not a fighter!) and ready to make me the only pup in the palace. Please come meet me!
I recently adopted two Labrador puppies - a brother and sister. The black female and chocolate male came to my house after my youngest son started his second year of college. The adoption was made while my husband was out of town. I like to say I surprised him when he came home, and surprised he was. Aren't they cute, I asked? Of course, he said, all puppies are cute, but they grow up and they chew and they dig their way out of yards and weren't we going to do some traveling once the kids left home?
There's one place in the SCV where it's always raining cats and dogs. The Los Angeles County Department of Animal Care and Control, with one of its centers in Castaic, gets a constant stream of calls involving different species. Although dogs and cats are the most commonly donated genre, it is more than just a canine and feline adoption agency. "We've had lions, cougars and bobcats," said Sergeant Chris Childs of the Castaic Animal Shelter. "Every day, every minute can bring us something different."

"I'm a sweet-natured Chihuahua looking for a family that can't wait to give me lots of attention. I just weaned my litter of healthy pups and I'm looking forward to a nice person to take care of me for a change!

Phoenix's owners dropped her off in an alley to fend for herself. Courage was dumped at a shelter, but not before his owners barb-wired his muzzle shut. Lulu was abandoned after she was caught playing with robbers intent on stealing from the car repair shop she was left alone to guard. Venus was found in the middle of the street, bleeding profusely. Pregnant with her first litter, she had been raped and assaulted with sticks.
