  • Miracle Dog

    Noon may not be a traditional naptime, but if you’re Annie Grace, you’ve earned the right to nap anytime you want to, and as often as you want.
    At 20, Annie Grace may be the  world’s oldest living Italian Greyhound but since the American Kennel Club doesn’t keep that information, there’s no way of knowing for sure, said her human companion,  Patty Standridge.

    By Susan Howell

     One of the most abundant and colorful birds to inhabit my yard is the Northern Cardinal. Over the years these permanent residents have provided me with not only their beautiful song but also a little bit of wild bird drama.
