Traveling dog spa a great option for pet owners

September 25, 2011

Emily Clinger first had the idea for a mobile dog spa after she injured her foot and was unable to take her own pets to their usual groomer. A Bremen resident, Emily and her husband now travel the area with Clean and Classy Mobile Pet Spa—a bus fully equipped to bathe, groom and pamper any size dog.
“It’s a lot more convenient for older people that can’t get out, especially in winter,” said Clinger. “Since we’re mobile, (the spa) is nice and quiet and really calm.”
Clinger added that because of the soothing atmosphere of the spa, she is able to groom dogs that others cannot.

Tailgating legend is unveiled

September 11, 2011

Tailgating can be traced back to the 1869 Princeton vs. Rutgers game where fans performed a pre-game ritual of eating at the “tail end” of the horse. Others say it was a group attending a Yale game in 1904 or that in 1919 it was Packers fans that made it official with a pre-game cookout.
Regardless of where it began, perhaps the most faithful fans are those to the Golden Dome of Notre Dame, at least with “professional” tailgaters like the local men who took it upon themselves to create a Notre Dame tailgating legend of their own … The Fifth Horseman.
