Pet Of The Week

waltpete2GT's pet of the week, brought to you by the Center for Animal Protection and Education

Walter and Peter were tiny puppies when they were brought to the Santa Cruz County Animal Shelter after one of their siblings died of Parvovirus. Luckily, both of them tested negative for the disease. Because they were too young to go up for adoption, they were placed in a Center for Animal Protection and Education foster home.

Now four months old, Walter and Peter's foster mom reports it has been very fun having the two puppies in her home, and she calls the bond between the two of them "just plain adorable."

CAPE is hoping to place the two puppies into the same home, or at least homes where there is already another dog. Walter and Peter are working hard on their potty training, and they already sleep through the night in their crate.

The puppies are said to be Shih Tzu/Terrier mixes and should weigh between 10 and 12 pounds in adulthood. Walter (the fluffy one) is more outgoing and independent, while Peter is sensitive and likes to snuggle. They are both very loving dogs who have been socialized with five other dogs in their foster home. They love to play and chew like most puppies, so will need an assortment of appropriate toys.

If you would like more information on Walter and Peter, please call Cathy Townsend at 335-5177 or email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

Santa Cruz Gives

A look at the organizations we’re asking you to support in our new holiday giving campaign


Gratitude—For Each New Morning With its Light

The full moon of Wednesday brings light to Thanksgiving (Thursday) under the Sagittarius Sun and Mercury. Mercury in Sag offers humanity the message (Mercury) of thankfulness and joy (Jupiter). No other sign represents food, music and joy better than Sagittarius (only Pisces, when not in despair). Beginning on Thanksgiving, we can list what we’re grateful for. Then we can continue the list, creating a daily Gratitude Journal. What we are grateful for always increases in our lives. On Thanksgiving Saturn/Neptune square (challenging) is in full effect. This can manifest as traditions not being honored, disappearing, falling away. It can also create a sense of sadness, confusion, of things not working out as planned. It’s best to be as simple as possible. And to focus on gratitude instead. Gratitude is a service to others. It is scientifically and occultly a releasing agent. Releasing us from the past, allowing our future—the new culture and civilization, the new Aquarian laws and principles, the rising light of Aquarius, the Age of Friendship and Equality—to come forth. Gratitude and goodwill create the “thought-form of solution for humanity and the world’s problems.” The hierarchy lays great emphasis upon expressing gratitude. Gratitude illuminates all that is in darkness. Let us be grateful during this season together. Being, for others, the light that illuminates the darkness. A Poem by R.W. Emerson: We are grateful … “For each new morning with its light/For rest and shelter of the night/For health and food/For love and friends/For everything thy goodness sends.” (poem by R.W. Emerson). I am grateful for my family of readers.
