To Whom It May Concern – An Essay by Karen Winkler

Monday, February 16, 2015

I walk shelter dogs. All breeds. All needs. All weather. Walking dogs is my calling. I have walked parks from Peace Valley to High Rocks. I know what a Martingale, haltie, gentle lead, and EZ-walk harness are. I keep a dog treat, poop bag, or squeaky toy in at least one pocket of every pair of jeans I own. I can take a damn good photo of a dog at the end of a 20 ft lead while wading through a creek and post it on Facebook without missing a step.

Sweet Designs Chocolatier – Review

Sunday, February 8, 2015

Looks yummy, right? “Mmmm, chocolate!” was the first thing I thought when I received the sample package from Sweet Designs Chocolatier to review. The company isn’t vegan, they also make milk chocolate, but they have a nice selection of certified organic, vegan and gluten-free 70% dark chocolate barks and an assortment box—with truffles and other goodies! Who doesn’t love good chocolate? And it says “vegan” right on their package and website. What’s not to love about that? Sweet...
