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 Restaurant Week

A huge part of Santa Cruz Restaurant Week has always been about offering a great dining experience for an affordable price. For some locals, the $25 flat-rate cost has provided the opportunity (or the excuse!) to try new spots, and indulge in Santa Cruz fine dining in a way they might have thought too pricey before.

 

Scorpio Sun, New Moon Eclipse, Mercury Direct

The Sun enters Scorpio’s mysteries Thursday under a new moon and partial solar eclipse (something essential has come to an end, its purpose completed). In Scorpio we harbor secrets, are devoted to something deep, dark and hidden. Sometimes it’s ourselves. We can bring great suspect to our assessment of others. Scorpio is the scorpion, the serpent and the eagle—three levels of development. As the serpent we take shelter in our beliefs. Sometimes we bite (or sting). The eagle vanquishes old beliefs through its sharp intellect, soaring high in the air, seeking to understand through perspective. Understanding releases us from the bondage of fear. The eagle is like the mother soothing feelings of mistrust, offering protection. Knowledge does this, too.
