My name is Paul. I’m around 2-3 years young and I weigh 26 pounds. I am very sweet and very playful, so I need someone to play with me! I love running around in the yard and playing with toys. I’m good on a leash and sure would love to go on walks with you by my side. I also like to play with other dogs but like to be introduced slowly and get to know them with you by my side. If you are interested in adopting me, please come down to BAS and meet me. If you call for information, reference system No. 25340.

When asked about planning for Memorial Day Weekend, some say the beach, the lake or barbeque cookouts. All good options, but what about something a little different this year?

Houston’s homegrown Space City Comic Con returns this weekend beginning Friday, May 27, and running through Sunday, May 29, at the NRG Center. It includes gaming, exhibitors plus a plethora of writers, cosplayers, comic writers, voice actors, pro wrestlers and, of course, plenty of famous folk. It’s a pop-culture expo for fans of comics, sci-fi, fantasy, gaming, literature and art.
