Abigail Narducci of Cary is working hard to help the Pawfect Match Rescue group. Also this month, there’s a Dog Day 5K, a chance to meet Internet cat Lil BUB, two events from the Coalition to Unchain Dogs and more.
Lucky is a happy and loyal Labrador retriever with Neuse River Golden Retriever Rescue. Before being rescued by NRGRR, Lucky had never lived in a home and had to learn common behaviors such as how to climb stairs, how to play and how to sleep on a dog bed.
I don't always remember my dreams, but when I do, they often leave me unsettled. I don't dream of butterflies and roses, of happy frolicking across a meadow. Others may, I suppose, but not me. The dreams that linger after I wake are hardly pastoral. They're about being chased or about being left behind. Their urgency often startles me.
Dear Mr. Dad: My 12-year-old daughter won't shower, she won't brush her teeth, and she wears the same clothes every day - and sometimes even sleeps in them. Honestly, she's not very pleasant to be around. Is this normal? Either way, how can I motivate her to be a little cleaner?
Q. Halloween is one of my favorite holidays, but since I've broken up with the kids' dad, I hate when October rolls around. I've been letting their dad go trick-or-treating with us for the last two years (we altered the parenting plan for that day only), but this year he's taking them to Disneyland over the weekend and I won't see them. I'm so angry! I have included him, but he's not including me! What's good ex-etiquette?
There was a small birthday party at the house the other day. Amid the whirlwind of people leaving - with kids scrambling for shoes and jackets beneath remnants of tissue paper and toys scattered everywhere - a bear was left behind.
