Happy Fourth of July, American readers! And happy Friday, everyone everywhere else! :) I’m spending America’s birthday at home with family in North Dakota, where the fireworks over the prairie are amazing. I can’t wait to share a little bit next week about the HOT (you read that right!), summer side of Fargo you don’t get to see in the media and let you guys get to know me a little better. After all, the lovely folks who have responded to the currently-live reader survey so far are saying they want to get to know yours truly a little better.
And ps: if you haven’t taken the quick, 10-question survey. Here it is. ;)
Sorry for the instagram, but sometimes my phone is the only chance I have to capture moments like these!
public service announcement for pet lovers!
Did you know that nearly one-in-five lost pets goes missing after being scared by fireworks or other loud noises? As a dog mother of two, this is one of my biggest fears! One of my pooches, the one with the beard, has panic attacks to the point of shredding the carpets in our apartment. The ASPCA has launched an app that includes tips for getting your pet through fireworks and storms safely, a personalized kit to help recover your pet if it gets lost, and a tool for helping manage your pet’s records.
