Monday, February 11, 2013
For the past few weeks, we’ve had a sick barn owl among our Wildlife Rescue Center’s patients. She was found by a Good Samaritan, downed and unresponsive on Stanford campus. Looks like we’ll have a happy ending; the owl

Holiday Hazards

Tonight and tomorrow will be busy days for many of us. Our highlight, like many parents of little bipeds, will be seeing the looks on their faces when they wake-up and see what Santa left under the tree....

Poop Pick-Up
Monday, December 17, 2012
A decade ago, I proposed my column to the then upstart Daily Journal.  As I contended then and still do now, I’m the best they have in my price range.  Seriously, I love reaching readers and gladly volunteer my time to dispel myths, offer tips and explain helpful services.
