I am not affiliated with the Montgomery County Friends of Animal Care & Control (FACC), but I promised a co-worker I would help spread the word.
On Sunday, October 20, 2013, the FACC is sponsoring “Bark in the Alley“, an afternoon of family bowling fun at the NRV SuperBowl in Christiansburg. The event takes place from 1pm – 3pm. Funds raised through this event will support their continued efforts on behalf of shelter dogs. A flyer with more information is available HERE. If you are looking for something different to do, consider being a part of Bark in the Alley on Sunday, October 20.
It’s that time. Time for Maybelline to join D.De and T.Grumpy Badass in Kitty Heaven. She’s the 3rd of the 4 kittens rescued at AISB in the VTCRC 13 years ago that we gave a home to. (I couldn’t decide which 2, so to my husband’s chagrin I brought home all 4.) They were definitely feral, although Maybelline was the easiest to get along with. After a while they would love on me while I was cleaning the litter boxes and would at least show their little kitty faces at feeding time, but don’t try to pick them up … they would disappear in a flash. Shadowdancer will be the only one left, but it’s only a matter of time before she makes her trip to Kitty Heaven.
Today marks the 6-year anniversary of the tragedy that struck Virginia Tech.
Remembering the 32 who lost their lives six years ago and affirming the values of community characterize Virginia Tech’s 2013 Day of Remembrance events.

Tic followed his brother, Snoopy Snickerdoodle, to Rainbow Bridge on February 25, 2013 around 4:45pm. To say he will be missed is an understatement, but he was able to leave with dignity and before the presumed bone tumor on his head caused him any more issues. Tic (aka, the Master-Blaster because he would blast off after anything that twitched and didn’t care what was in his way) was almost 12 years old and leaves behind his adopted young sister Sadie Mae and his human parents, Rick and Laurie.
A slideshow of Tic through the years is currently being put together and will be available from Laurie’s website.
