John from Henry's Market and me, Freeway. What a great time I had the other night when I was invited to the Dog Spa located in Beverly, MA for cocktail hour for dogs and their human companions. The owner Janet Keohane, a wonderful person, and I appre- ciated that she invited me. The Operations Manager is Chris Keohane. Dog Spa is designed to be a destination for those who seek the highest quality of life for their beloved pets. At the Dog Spa they take health, nutrition and grooming very seri- ously. They also carry fashions of clothes you wouldn't believe: sweaters, t-shirts, leashes and collars many different colors and styles. There where all sorts of treats for the dogs. For the humans they had bacon wrapped with scallops, tenderloin on a stick and other appetizers, fruit sticks with melon, pineapple and strawberries, wine, beer and soft drinks. It was just a wonderful time and I hope to be invited again next year. The Dog Spa is located at 45 Enon Street, Beverly, MA. For further information, please call 978-922-9227 or visit their website at beverlydogspa.com. I like to thank my friend John Keohane, a great guy, who owns Henry's Market, also located in Beverly, who is married to Janet (Dog Spa). I try to visit his store whenever I am in Beverly to see my sister-in-law, Mary, who worked at Henry's for years. This market is so large and unbelievable and his staff is wonderful. They have the BEST chicken pot pies I have ever tasted. That is the main reason why I stop by with my human companion to pick up one or maybe two pot pies to take home. If you're ever in Beverly stop at Henry's or even visit Janet at the Dog Spa and tell her Freeway said hi. It is wonderful to know special people that take the time to do these events for the dogs and give their human companions a chance to meet people and know that they LOVE their animals and take very good care of them. Good luck Janet and thank you again John for inviting me to this special time. Oh! By the way, Pam, editor and publisher of the Post-Gazette said hello. That's all for now[ Remember to pick up after your pet and keep our North End Streets clean. Letter to the Editor ... PUPPY MILL AWARENESS Dear Editor: September 17 is Puppy Mill Awareness Day, so please allow me to warn readers about the dangers of buying animals from pet stores, clas- sified ads, parking lots or over the Internet. Most puppies that are sold through these sources come from cruel mass-breeding facilities where animals are kept in tiny, feces-caked cages and are never given any love, attentions, or ever~a &OI I NE Bar-Bistro 333 Hanover Street Boston, Massachusetts (617) 227-1777 chance to roll in the grass. Food, veterinary care and shelter are often inadequate. Mother dogs lose their minds after years of intense con- finement and neglect and are often killed when their worn- out bodies can no longer pro- duce puppies.
