  • Learning from dogs

    My wife and I have two dogs, one is named Charley, and the other is Bella. Charley is a mixture of Lhasa lapso and something else, and Bella is a full-fledged Pomeranian that we rescued from a bad situation. We were not quite sure what would take place when we got Bella, she was so scared and stayed to herself the first day or two here.

    In spite of all the media attention on the Ebola virus, Kentuckians should be paying more attention to a more likely infection, the flu, according to health officials.

    She can still remember where their dog pen was located on the property. Aside from that, there’s little proof that a home once stood there.
