Just This Side of Heaven by Timothy Glass
A Journey that Celebrates Life Through Loss. Just This Side of Heaven is a story about love and devotion between human and pet. This story will grab your heart from the first page and have you laughing and crying until the last. I am a dog lover, and had lost my beloved bulldog. I came away after reading this book with a healing feeling; not only about my pet but also the loss of my mother. Thank you for a wonderful book. - L. Paulson Visit www.justthissideofheaven.com; Amazon and Barnes and Noble

Seal Beach Licensing Canvassing
There are over 2,500 dogs currently licensed in the City of Seal Beach and even more that have never registered with the City. License Inspectors from the City of Long Beach Animal Care Services Bureau will be working with local volunteers to update license records through door-to-door canvassing. Canvassing for delinquent licenses and expired proof of rabies will be conducted across the City of Seal Beach throughout April 2009 or until it is completed. License inspectors will be going door to door to check on delinquent licenses, initiate a license for a new pet or to ask for proof of rabies certification. In order to avoid a citation for having an unlicensed dog, visit www.longbeach.gov/acs for an online application. Dog licenses are currently as follows:
adopt Atticus (PICTURED): a year in a shelter is too long
Atticus is a very special boy who has been at the Seal Beach Animal Care Center for almost a year. He is an athletic, high-energy dog who is handsome, affectionate and lovable. He doesn't care for other dogs or cats and he would do best in a home without small children. He wants and needs to be the only pet, but he will shower you with a lifetime of love and devotion. contact@...
Justin, information provided about extra work is incorrect
A non-union extra gets paid $64 for 8 hours and a union extra gets paid $23.00 for 8 hours. A non-union person who brings a dog gets an additional $20 and a non-union person who brings a dog gets $23. It breaks down like this:
Non-union - $64.00/8 + $20 for a dog
SAG Union - $130.00/8 + $23 for the dog
I might add that these are long days for the dog to endure which a lot of production companies do not take into consideration. You can verify all of this information above with Central Casting at (818) (562) 2700. - Cassie
FALLING CAUSED BY DOGS
