Brenda Cannon Henley

In talking with one of my grandchildren the other day, I discovered a phenomenon that has not changed since I was a teen, and believe me, that has been a very long time now. (I celebrated my 75th birthday on Dec. 23, 2017). He wanted what he did not have, when just a few weeks ago, he wanted what he now has.

Gerry the dog

Gerry is a sweet pup who had a hard beginning! He was seized by the Orange PD in September after he was left in a car for over an hour with three other dogs. The other dogs ganged up on Gerry, who suffered extensive bite wounds. Orange Animal Control seized Gerry, and the Humane Society wants to give him a fresh start. A dachshund at about 27 pounds and maybe 3 and a half years old, he’s very handsome and playful, and would make a perfect addition to any family. Gerry gets along well with other dogs and adores attention! He has lots of energy, so a fenced in yard is a must.
