Friday Faves is our chance to share our favorite local/general and national/lady content from the previous week. This gives us a chance to dive into thought provoking pieces, as well as cheerlead our fave local bloggers. Also, we are adoptive puppy pushers…well, animals in general really – so open your hearts and home and trust us to find you your next best friend.

PET CRUSH OF THE WEEK

This adorable little pupper is Jack Jr. He’s about four years old and enjoys long walks and hanging with his friends at the dog park. He’s been waiting for the perfect home for a while now, and would love for you to come see him at Front Street Shelter.
