E-mail Print PDF
Brooke Menapace’s mother-in-law Robbie Menapace was diagnosed with merkel cell carcinoma, a form of skin cancer in July 2021. That’s when Brooke and the rest of the family decided to join the Relay for Life cause by creating their own team. They named it High Desert Cycle - Side by Side and then they were off.

In preparation for the 2024 Relay for Life, which will take place on June 14, the team set a goal of raising $5,000. They’ve already beat that goal; they had raised over $6,500 at press time.

Bringing an old dog to heel

E-mail Print PDF
DEAR PAW’S CORNER: After my aunt passed away, I gladly agreed to take in her dog, “Hunter,” a rather squat, obese Beagle. He’s a happy old dog of about 9 years, but my aunt gave him little to no training other than housetraining. That makes walking him — something the vet recommended I do twice a day, in addition to a diet — a chore.

Hunter will walk a few steps, then sit down and refuse to budge. When he does feel like walking, he either tugs the leash forward or lags behind. How can I correct this? — James T., Plano, Texas
