Jasper is Pet of the Week!

“He’s as cute as he looks!” exclaimed a staff member at Long Beach Animal Care Services. We can all vouch for that! Jasper is a little male gray-and-white terrier mix, about 5 years old. He’s very sweet and loves to cuddle with Charlie, his little blind poodle kennel mate, (who’s also up for adoption—hint, hint). Meet Jasper (and Charlie, too!), at Animal Care Services on the shelter side of the P.D. Pitchford Animal Village, 7700 E. Spring St., Long Beach, (562) 570-PETS. Ask for ID#A576699. (Charlie’s is A574758!)

Are you heading to a wedding? Do you want a beautiful dress that will simply say “Wow!”  Then Rachel Allan is the place to look. I received a Dress style #2033 in royal size 8 and just love how beautiful it is!  The dress is a Chiffon A-line gown with a chain-like beaded top. I love how elegant the dress is and I felt like a Princess wearing it when I attended a friend’s summer wedding. I love how the top is beaded and the dress just flows!  It is just gorgeous!
