Huffington Post - over 3 years
LOS ANGELES -- Jill Zarin had to take a cross-country business trip, but her dog Ginger was sick. She couldn't leave the 7-pound Chihuahua behind, so she hired a vet to go with them. In stepped celebrity veterinarian Dr. Cindy Bressler, who launched JetSetVets this year to meet pets' needs in the air. Bressler has a house call practice in New York and the Hamptons. She took on two partners to start JetSetVets: Los Angeles and Beverly Hills veterinarian Patrick Mahaney and Blue Star Jets, a New York-based company that promises to have a small, medium, large or jumbo jet ready to go anywhere in the world in less than four hours. Together, they are believed to be the country's only private-jet, ride-along-vet, concierge-pet service.

The company will also prepare animals for trips, apply for travel documents and work with veterinary hosp ...

A Conversation with Carla Olson Mike Ragogna: Hi Carla, how are you? Carla Olson: I'm great. LA is not too hot today, and it's going to be a great day. MR: Every day is a great day in LA. CO: Well, that could be debated, but I think I'll probably just agree with you there. MR: [laughs] You have a new album, Have Harmony, Will Travel. How did you come up with the material for this one? CO: Several years ago, I was in between production projects, which is what I mainly do. I haven't done a studio album in a long time, mainly because I've been working at producing. One day I just thought, "Well, I'm in between projects. Maybe I should try to start something." I did have about half an album's worth of material written, but it wasn't really what I wanted to do at the time. I approached a could of people about doing a duet album, one of them being Peter Case, who I've known since the '70s, and he said, "Yeah, I'd love to." He loved the two suggestions of songs ...

Richard (RJ) Eskow: The 1 Percent's "Fiscal Cliff" Counter-Revolution Will Be Televised
Huffington Post - about 4 years
Free speech is a beautiful thing. And it's amazing how free someone's speech becomes -- and how unavoidable -- when they're part of a tiny elite with billions of dollars at its disposal: Suddenly you can "speak" in all the major media outlets. You can "speak" on Fox News. And you can use your money to elect politicians who'll "speak" for you in high office. Will all that cash on hand - and a "news" network, too - suddenly your videos are everywhere. They're using video to full effect right now - first to create an artificial "fiscal cliff" panic, and then to force their losing agenda on the public. To paraphrase the late Gil Scott-Heron, the counter-revolution will be televised. Philo-Facts The public spoke loudly and forcefully in the last election: Raise taxes on millionaires, billionaires, and corporations. Defend Social Security and Medicare. And create jobs. That means the forces that oppose those things have a lot of work to do - and a lot of video to shoot. ...

Deva Samuels of Fetch! Pet Care of West Seattle sent us these pics and note about a male Rottweiler mix she found in Burien Friday, Sept. 21: “I was driving in Burien on SW 156/Maplewild headed towards the beach,” she said. “I actually almost ran him over. I approached two houses in the neighborhood and neither person recognized the pup. He does not have a microchip, no collar. He is very friendly but laid back. He has a few lumps, one very noticeable fatty tumor on his chest. He is neutered and on the older side and a little chunky.” If you recognize this dog, please contact Deva at (206) 234-4224 Cell, (206) 965-9851 Office or email fetchwest@gmail.com.

Local Pet Care Professionals Collaborate
Barrington Patch - over 4 years
With thousands of pet owners in Chicago’s Northwest Suburbs it is no surprise that there are pet care providers popping up everywhere. Few pet care companies have been able to differentiate their services and successfully “specialize” in particular areas of pet care. In June 2012, Shannon’s Pet Sitting & Mustang Sally Horse and Pet Sitting decided to combine forces, but did it in a way that allows them still maintain their own individuality in the pet care industry. Shannon's Pet Sitting specializes in pets with behavioral problems, medical needs & senior pets. With her background as a certified veterinary assistant specialized in Cardiology, Internal, and Emergency Medicine combined with her intuitive instinct of animal behavior, Shannon is able to recognize medical and behavioral concerns. In late May 2012 the pet care veteran of 15 years became over whelmed while working a full time day job and trying to manage the increasing demand for her “specialized” pet care servi ...

Rhianna, Skye Would Be Prrrfect House Pets
Lake Forest- Lake Bluff Patch - almost 5 years
  I recently brought my three dogs (rescues, of course) to Best Friends Pet Care in Prairie View for their monthly grooming appointments, and I noticed two of the most precious cats I have ever seen! These darling cats were just sitting in the glass-enclosed cat condo in their lobby, watching all the dogs parade in (or, for some, being dragged in) to be bathed and trimmed up. They are so curious and friendly! I could not believe Rihanna and Skye are up for adoption with Young at Heart Pet Rescue. If you, a friend or relative is looking for an older but healthy and oh-so-cute cat, stop by Best Friends, 22096 Pet Lane in Prairie View, or call (847) 634-9444 for more information. Here is some information on each cat from the Young at Heart website: Rihanna Hi there, folks! It’s Me! Rihanna! Aren’t I a pretty girl?
