Q: We both work a lot, and our pup, Baxter, is often home alone all day. Can you tell us a little bit about doggy daycare?
Doggy daycare is great, but it’s not for every dog. Doggy daycare is very beneficial for active dogs, working breed dogs and social type dogs. They can offer group playtime, one-on-one time with a staff member – and some offer boarding and baths/grooming as well.
In 2009, Dr. David Beito, a University of Alabama history professor, and his wife, Dr. Linda Royster Beito, released a book called “Black Maverick,” a biography about unsung civil rights pioneer Dr. Theodore Roosevelt Mason Howard.
The book received positive reviews, but, for the Beitos, a book wasn’t enough. Howard’s story needed to reach a wider audience.
In 2015, they attempted something they hadn’t done before: writing a screenplay about a part of Howard’s life they hoped would become a movie.
Here’s wishing all our Druid City Living readers a great week, filled with all kinds of outstanding local events. Get out, get involved, and above all else: Have fun.
