‘Puppy mill abuse motivated by greed’


Letters to the Editor

Ranelle Newport
I would like to thank Oklahoma Gazette and staff writer Clifton Adcock for the Feb. 23 cover story “Pawing at profits” regarding puppy mills and, sadly, the efforts by Sen. Josh Brecheen, R-Coalgate, to repeal this law.

Fun unleashed

Dog parks abound in the metro.


Features

A dog may be a man’s best friend, but even our pawed pals like to get out and play with their own kind once in awhile. Thanks to area dog parks, a happening social scene means plenty of room to run, play and stay fit.

Woofsly Barksy The III


CFN

Gazette staff
Do you ever feel like the dog park experience is lacking that dash of culture that’s present in the rest of your life? The whole idea of poop-scooping and the tossing of saliva-soaked tennis balls seems wildly bourgeois at times.

That holiday with the hearts

Happy Valentine’s weekend, everybody!

Okay, I know that V-Day is generally a consumeristic ploy to sell a massive amount of heart-shaped candy and greeting cards, not to mention flowers ... but the point behind it all, I think, is to stop and remember the things you love, whether that's a person, a group of people, a dog, a family or just yourself.

The cool thing about this city is that it comes equipped with fun having for all. So whether you're celebrating this weekend, Tuesday or thereafter, here are some things to keep you busy.

First off, get your OKCityCard. It's one of the primary fundraisers for Allied Arts, and February is Allied Arts Month, so it only makes sense. They are $50, which is donated in entirety to Allied Arts.

It's a pretty sweet deal and partners with more than 200 locations around the metro. If you're running low on ideas (or cash), then just peruse the list of discounts at alliedartsokc.com/okcitycard.

Are you a little bookish? Head to Full Circle Bookstore, 1900 Northwest Expressway at 50 Penn Place, on Tuesday for live music, wine sales, 10 percent off any book with the word “love” in the title and a roaring fireplace.

Cozy in a couple and ready to grow your family? This is your chance to do so. The Central OK Humane Adoption Center at 7500 N. Western is offering a lovable deal: All dogs and cats are free to adopt Saturday and Sunday.

If you feel like getting out on the town tonight, hit up the second annual LOVE on the Plaza. You can expect a kiss cam, lots of local art and some live music. You can even participate in a Valentine's creation contest or take part in a power performance piece hosted by Cole Dewey Design called “The Gay Agenda,” which features two men performing daily routines that a heterosexual couple would perform.

No matter what you decide, show some local love in honor of St. Valentine.
