David Curtis’ Sunday painting class painting a model in their beautiful gardens next door.

David also has a class every Saturday at the Coc Reservation, Essex County Greenbelt, off of Rt. 133 Essex, ma. Behind Farnam’s Restaurant. $20.00 per student. In my opinion that’s an awesome deal to get tips from a well known Gloucester Artist.
Check out David’s website. Go to the top of the event page for details and check out his beautiful Gallery of paintings there too.

Who said Joey C hates dogs?
Who said Joey is a wimp when it comes to anything with more than 2 legs?
Who said Joey is a jerk when it comes to someone’s love of their 4 legged child?
Not me now.
Little “IZZY” stole Joey’s Heart last Friday. Joey even fed her by hand.
Seeing him hug and kiss her made me cry. I guess I had Joey all wrong.
So bring your dogs down the dock when visiting and maybe Joey will throw you a Bone.

You never know what you’ll get

When i first met Natalie (Now IZZY) at the Cape Ann Animal Aid she was shy and calm. Now that she is getting comfortable she’s showing her true colors. She’s a very happy 2 year old SATO. In english that means she’s a Mutt. Going to have to get a DNA test to see what breeds she is. Caaa is a great place to start if your looking for a dog or cat to adopt. Check them out.

McLobster? McGross!


Calamari McNuggets!

“Nothing says summer quite like a quest to get lobster rolls. Now, McDonald’s is offering their own fast food to-go version.
McDonald’s lobster roll

The fast food chain has a limited-time lobster roll on the menu in New England for $7.99. The value meal costs $10.99.

“The return of the Lobster Roll is exciting because we have requests for it every summer,” Nicole Garvey, Boston region spokesperson, said. “It’s a delicious sandwich and we are thrilled to offer this regional favorite at a great value.”

The sandwich, made from North Atlantic lobster, is 290 calories (a lot less than other McDonald’s choices). It will be available through mid-August.

This isn’t the first time McDonald’s is selling lobster. In 1993, the company launched the McLobster nationwide. It was brought back to New England periodically through 2005. The fast food giant’s version continued to be sold in Canada.

Twitter users say they have been hesitant to try the lobster roll, but some who tried it say they enjoyed it.”

Martel Needs Your Help!

Martel Needs Your Help!


FROM The Cape Ann Animal Aid;

“The Story

Martel’s rescue story begins with Ruthie, an abandoned yellow lab caring for eight puppies in an over-crowded, high-kill shelter in rural Georgia (see photo below). Thanks to the folks at our partner rescue organization, Road Trip Home, Ruthie and her pups were pulled from the shelter and put into a loving foster home. Martel was one of those pups and that was just the beginning of his rescue journey. When old enough, Ruthie and the pups were transported into our care, ready to begin the next chapter and find loving homes.

For Ruthie and Martel’s litter-mates, adoption came quickly and our hearts were overjoyed! But what about Martel? Well, Martel’s journey took a surprise turn when his eyes began to look swollen and watery. He scratched at them and was clearly uncomfortable. We took him to the vet for a closer look.

The wonderful staff at Cape Ann Veterinary Hospital recognized a more serious condition and referred Martel for an appointment at the Massachusetts Veterinary Referral Hospital.

There, we learned that Martel is suffering from a severe case of Distichia (pronounced ‘dis-tee-chia’) in each eye. He has extra eyelashes growing through the underside of the eyelid facing toward the eye. These eyelashes rub on the cornea and cause pain and discomfort. In Martel’s case, the condition is serious and may likely lead to more severe complications like corneal ulcerations, scarring, and vision loss.

The surgery Martel needs involves freezing the stray hair follicles in the eyelid with an ophthalmic cryosurgical unit to prevent further hair production. There is a 25% chance that after surgery, new eyelashes will develop and Martel may require a second surgery in his lifetime. Today, we’re taking it one step at a time and we’re determined to get Martel the happy ending he deserves.

The vet bill including Martel’s pre-op care, surgery, and post-op care is expected to total over $2,100. You can help by making a donation—big or small—towards Martel’s medical bills.

With your gift today, you will join others who see the vibrant life and love in Martel’s eyes. You will make a difference and help this little fella thrive, stopping his pain and discomfort and getting back on the road to adoption.

On behalf of Martel, Ruthie, and all of us at Cape Ann Animal Aid’s Christopher Cutler Rich Animal Shelter, thank you for reading Martel’s story. We can’t wait to write the next chapter—and we’ll have you to thank for making it all possible!”
