Meet Blinkin, Blue Ribbon News Pet of the Week

Meet Blinkin, Blue Ribbon News Pet of the Week

Blinkin is 3 months old and full of spunk, but she tends to run into things- in a puppy happy-go-lucky way- which is the reason she sometimes wears goggles (and she is just so stinking cute in them).  Her blindness does not slow her down.  Blinkin is current on her vaccines, spayed, and microchipped.  Contact info@rockwallpets.com for more info or to arrange […]

Like cough medicines and Menthol lozenges we purchase this time of year, their lyrics may soothe us: What Child is this, who, laid to rest/On Mary’s lap is sleeping?1 Though the nations may rage and winter weather behave likewise, […]
