First Aid for Fido

story by DAVI We live in beautiful Florida, so my mom and I spend most of our free time outside, especially on warm summer days. Believe me when I tell you my mom doesn’t take being a dog mom lightly. She always considers my needs and wants before we set out on an adventure, making sure I’m prepared for anything we may encounter. My trail bag is routinely packed with the essentials: a collapsible bowl, pet waste bags, healthy treats, my squeaky squirrel and, if disaster should strike, a canine first-aid kit.

Freewill Astrology

story by ROB BREZSNY ARIES (March 21-April 19): An Aries reader sent a boisterous email. “I was afraid I was getting bogged down by my duties,” he said, “too hypnotized by routine, too serious about problems. I took drastic action.” He wrote how he broke out of his slump: “I gave laughing lessons to a cat. I ate a spider. I staged a sneezing contest. I smashed an alarm clock with a hammer. When an elderly woman walked by, I called out ‘Hail to the Queen!’ and did a backflip. I named my spoon Hortense, the table Beatrice, a buzzing …
