Ahhhhhhhhh Technology!

Well, Petparazzi finally clawed its way out of the age of steam and now has a site on Facebook.  Hopefully we will be doing a special photo event at a well known local business offering great discounts for Scoopsters.  What better way of saying "I Love You" than with a portrait of your favorite friends!

A dog needs your help!

This girl was a street-pick up who ran out of time today.  She has a rescue in CO to go to but can not go till next week.   We desperately need a quiet foster home for her.  Will know more later this evening about how close to giving birth she is, and she may give birth before the transport is ready. She is under 50 lbs and very sweet. 

Please help us help this dog.  I have limited internet access this week so call at 505 412-9096.  Thank you.
