Two years ago, Gina Kantzabedian, owner of Animal Crackers Pet Supply in Laguna Beach, rescued an Egyptian pharaoh hound named Angel, who had just given birth to eight puppies at a local high-kill animal shelter. Kantzabedian said a full-grown dog of this breed typically weighs 40 pounds. Due to mistreatment by her former “caretakers” at the shelter, Angel weighed 9 pounds. “You could count every bone in her little body,” she said. After an excruciating 18-day rescue mission, Angel’s puppies were so malnourished that only four made it home with Kantzabedian and her crew.

Mary A. Castillo The Laguna Beach Animal Shelter is crossing borders by collecting and donating dog and cat igloos for the Baja Animal Sanctuary in Rosarito Beach. "We're trying to collect as many as we can," Shelter Director Nancy Goodwin said. The Laguna shelter became involved when one of its volunteers donated food to the Baja organization. While there, he saw hundreds of dogs housed in outdoor corrals without shade or shelter from the elements.

One month after the flooding and the mud devastated the Laguna Beach Animal Shelter, our temporary facility is up and running at 2093 Laguna Canyon Road. This location provides a functional space for the public to visit the animals and a base of operations for the staff and volunteers. Our shelter has received a tremendous amount of support and assistance from volunteers, community members, local veterinarians, Irvine Animal Care Center, Mission Viejo Animal Care Center, Orange County Animal Services and the leadership of the city of Laguna Beach to help make this a seamless transition.

We welcomed our first-year college student back for the holidays last week. It was Katie?s second trip home; she returned for Thanksgiving too. Her dog and cat welcomed her each time in their own distinctive ways. Booker, our Welsh springer spaniel, is the ideal greeter. When you come home after an extended absence he gives you a hint of what it must have been like to go onstage as a Beatle. Freely translated it runs thus: ?YAY YAY YAY YAY, you?re back, lemme show you my squeaky ball!

Walking a dog in Laguna Beach is the entrée to meeting some terrifically wonderful people. One in particular is Deborah Carman. Carman takes her two dogs, Cozy Coquetti and Teddy Confetti, down to Divers Cove, where she is a self-appointed cleanup artist, picking up the trash that thoughtless people leave behind. "See these little plastic bottle caps," she said with disgust. "They don't degrade for years and years, and they get into the ocean, where fish and birds pick them up. And these plastic bottles little kids like to fill with sand and leave here, they don't degrade for 450 years.

The Laguna Beach Taxpayers Assn. sent out a citywide letter last week about ballot Measure CC, the Open Space Initiative, which is on the November ballot. The association apparently thinks that a $10 a month parcel tax, which would raise $21 million over the next 20 years, is too much to spend to purchase remaining open space in Laguna Beach. The association doesn't acknowledge that by maintaining a reasonable density in our town the infrastructure, including traffic, circulation, and parking, and the need for electricity, water and sewage will limit the financial burden on our citizens, and will also lead to an increase in our property values.

Sorry to see McCallas leave All of us at Bushards Pharmacy will miss our close and longtime neighbors at McCalla Pharmacy. We have both served the residents and visitors of Laguna Beach together for many, many years. We have been neighbors on Forest Avenue since McCallas opened in 1958. (Joe Bushard opened his first store in 1946 across from the Hotel Laguna and then moved onto Forest Avenue in 1949.) We are sorry to see our good friends at McCalla's move away.
