Sending your first kid off to school is just as traumatizing for the parent as for the kid. I know because I just had to do it.

I was all excited about September  3 at first. I couldn’t wait to get Corbin off to school.
Because our kids stay at home with their daddy during the day, they have some separation anxiety.

Nash County Animal Friends’ Notebook

We have joy when there are pets adopted or rescued.  We have sadness when pets are killed.  So many of them are killed because the pets  weren’t fixed. They weren’t spay/neutered.  Why does this make a difference?  Well, first of all, it makes more babies that grow up and end up without a home.  Just this last week, someone brought in 8 puppies.  They are lab/beagle mixes and as I write this note, there are still seven left.
