Our dog, Miss Audrey Hepburn, is unique. She came to live with us in March of 2004. Our son, Andrew, was home on medical leave from the Marine Corps. Andrew had a plan: If the chemotherapy worked, he would move back to his assignment in Annapolis with a dog. And if it did not, then we, his parents, would have someone to take care of. None of us knew that Andrew had only two more weeks. Miss Hepburn came to us scared and traumatized, most likely the victim of abuse. At our house, she hid, defecated, climbed and chewed.

School board election needs contest of ideas “Your son got Mrs. X for math? She hasn't rewritten tests since two textbooks ago. My daughter had her last year - a total nightmare.” It's no secret: There are superstar teachers and dud teachers in La Cañada Unified School District - many parents can name them. Yet the district continues to be strong-armed into pretending these differences don't exist. The teachers union contract with the district constrains the school board and administrators, limiting the district's ability to enforce best practices against the will of teachers, to compensate them based on merit, and more.

We had the front gate rebuilt in February as it was low enough that Diesel could stand up with his front paws on the top bar and look as if he was going to FALL over. This terrified passersby (who do not realize he is just yelling HEY! YEAH YOU! You with the dogs! Wanna play!? Right here right now? MY RULES!!!) who think he's going to come over that gate and eat them and their dogs. So, we had the boards raised. He can still hop up and look over, but they feel safer. Anyway Diesel, who has just recuperated from breaking his toe (running like a damn fool from one end of the front yard to the other, ripping madly through the ivy to bark at dogs being walked or people jogging, caught his left-rear, outside toe on an ivy-rope and broke it cleanly — it swung 90 degrees without so much as a click)
