Furry Friend Friday With Barcelona!

Barcelona
Can you think of a better way to kick off a long weekend than by reading about an adorable furry friend? Neither can we!  Today we got to chat with Barcelona, an exotic girl who’s up for adoption at the Sterling Animal Shelter.  This cute girl is a 5 month-old terrier mix who traveled a long way to find her forever family! So Barcelona, I hear you’ve traveled a long way to be here, where are you originally from? You’re right!  I’m actually from Puerto Rico, my name might make you think I’d be from Spain, but nope!  I just arrived here in the U.S. and I’ve only been in the shelter for a few days.  Everyone here is so nice but I’d really like to find a home of my own with a yard where I can run and play! What’s your favorite way to spend the day?... [...]

Tips For Moving Day

Be ready to start early!  Moving day will probably feel like one of the longest of your life, but it’s important to get up early and make sure everything is packed and good to go.  You’ll want to make sure everything is ready once the movers or family and friends arrive. Map out your route and make sure that you, as well as any movers know how to get there all well.  You’ll also want to make sure there’s room for everyone to park and unload.
