Larry Ebersole: Help a pet – go garage-saling

If I had the absolute focus that our dog, Kendo, I would surely be diagnosed with some sort of ailment requiring medication.

Around 9 a.m. this morning, Kendo chased some sort of small critter across the yard and trapped it under an old snowmobile trailer. Six hours later, Kendo is still running in a circle around the trailer, trying to squeeze himself into the same small areas he couldn’t fit into a couple of hours ago. He is a dog possessed, having forgone even an interest in the dog treats he leaves lying in the grass.

I am at a loss for ideas that will cause him to give up his quest, and to be honest I am not sure I want him to quit trying. I suspect that this is the same little critter whose last nest in my engine cost me more than $500 dollars in repairs. At the very least, I will not be plotting any rescue attempts.

I am not sure if animal psychiatry falls under the umbrella of services that Grand County Pet Pals helps with, but so many other significant pet needs are taken on by the group that is doesn’t matter. Winter Park real estate agent Jill Childress has chosen Pet Pals as the beneficiary of her annual garage sale. You can help by shopping at the sale or by donating items to be sold. The sale will be held on June 27 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. E-mail me for directions to the sale or contact Pet Pals at 722-7680.

The presentation by the West Grand Community Educational Foundation of the 2009 Citizen of the Year Award to Therese McElroy is scheduled for Thursday, June 18. The Annual Chuck Wagon Banquet will begin at 5:30 p.m. at the West Grand High School. Along with the award presentation and banquet, the band “Istari” will provide live entertainment. “Istari” is a world percussion trio featuring the musical sounds of South America, the Caribbean, Mexico and Africa. Call 724-3217 for ticket information. The original presentation was delayed due to a death in Therese’s family. The condolences of the Kremmling community go out to her family, and we are glad to finally show her the appreciation she deserves as Citizen of the Year.

Carol Morales of Morales Farms will be hosting a farmer’s market with fresh produce every Saturday from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. at Middle Park Meats in Kremmling. Carol would like to thank Harlen from Middle Park Meats for the invitation. Judy at the Kremmling Mercantile is also bringing in fresh produce from the Morales Farms so it will be available during the week. This makes for a great opportunity to shop locally while supporting our community farms efforts.
