Wet Nose Wednesday: Kahn Needs a Home!

This morning Sami stopped in from the Humane Society of West Michigan. She brought a handsome dog named Kahn. Kahn is a 2 year old Boxer/American Staffordshire mix. He is good with most other dogs and respectful children. He is such a cool dog! He actually shared a kennel with Lucy Lu (who we featured last week). Lucy Lu found a forever home, so now Kahn is lonely in the kennel all by himself. Let’s find him a forever home this week!

No One Woos Like Gaston in This New ‘Beauty and the Beast’ Photo

I’d be hard-pressed to name a Disney villain I like as much as Beauty and the Beast’s Gaston. In addition to being a Sondheim-esque twist on the traditional idea of a fairy tale prince  —  vain, violent, and eager to confuse chivalry with misogyny  —  the character of Gaston has also become something of a method actor’s dream for Disney theme park employees.
