Helping Animals in Chesapeake Country


ur region loves animals. From pets to osprey, if it has fur, feathers, fins or scales, the residents of the Bay will go above and beyond to keep them safe. We see it on a weekly basis, how our community bans together to help. Krista, the CBM general manager, reported back to me last week that she dropped her car off at Triton Garage in North Beach and got to talking with the staff. They told her they are a pet-friendly garage and to pass along the message that if someone is out walking their dog and they need to step inside to cool down in the air-conditioned waiting room, or just a treat, they are welcome. Krista is our resident animal rescuer, wearing many hats outside her 9-to-5, including helping coordinate intake for Lab Rescue LRCP. She’s also about to become foster mom to a beagle puppy, rescued from a Virginia breeding facility. Most of our staff has beloved furry family members. Many of them are rescues, so clearly we have a heart for animals. This was magnified when last month we all teamed together to help a dog locked

in a hot vehicle in our parking lot. A colleague had spotted the animal being left behind by its owner on a hot July day. So she called and asked us to watch and see when the owner returned to the vehicle. We all assumed the driver was coming back very soon, because it was a very warm sunny afternoon and there is zero shade in our parking lot. Five minutes turned into 20. At this point, we knew that dog had to be miserable. So we sprang into action. We called the SPCA and Animal Control who pointed us in the right direction. After these stumbling phone calls, we made a connection with the non-emergency line in Anne Arundel County. They dispatched two officers who were on the scene in a matter of minutes. The dog was panting heavily—the windows were cracked, but the outside temps were in the high 80s already. The officers got the dog some water, lifted up to a thirsty head poking out of the window and then they went on the hunt for the owner. I’m pretty sure he got a ticket and wasn’t happy to have been dragged

away from wherever he had gone. But I knew we had done the right thing. Leave your fourlegged friend at home if you are planning on going somewhere they can’t tag along to. Even with the windows rolled down, your dog can’t cool itself effectively. This pup was lucky someone noticed and did something about it. If you don’t want to sit in a hot car for more than five minutes, your dog definitely doesn’t want to! ••• also want to acknowledge the recent death of Malcolm Funn. Malcolm was an important figure in the NAACP in Calvert County, as well as the League of Women Voters, the Calvert Co. Historical Society, the State Elections board, multiple commissions and the community at-large. He will be missed. •

mber came to live with us four years ago, from Collie Rescue in North Carolina. Initially, she was very wary of everyone. She had spent the first two years of her life with very little human contact; many, many dogs but not kind people. Gradually, she learned to walk on a leash and always met other dogs with great enthusiasm. She needed a fourfooted friend. We realized it was time for another trip to North Carolina, where we found Mr. Kimble. He had a very different personality, greeting everyone with a smile. Mr. Kimble was about 2 years old, also, from the same original hoarding place. We think they are sister and brother. And they are still best of friends. They both understand “Papers Day!”, bounding into the van, ready for their next adventure...ready for whatever comes their way. And we don’t know quite what we would do without our two look-alike Distribution Dogs! Peggy Traband & Jim Lyles deliver Bay Weekly in the South Anne Arundel County area

Search crews look for a missing father and son in the water Monday at dusk. Photo: Capt. Jenifer Fritz, Nauti Boat Academy.

Capt. Kelli Gutierrez and Capt. Jenifer Fritz, who both live in the Swan Point area, were out jetskiing together when the woman aboard the Sea Ray got Fritz’s attention, yelling and stomping. Fritz, sensing something was off, headed towards the boat. Meanwhile, far from the boat, Gutierrez stumbled upon the 12-year-old girl with her face barely above water. Gutierrez pulled her onto the jetski. The girl had ingested a good deal of water. “She said her little brother was holding onto her but he let go and she can’t find him,” Gutierrez says. The girl was later taken back to shore and treated

for non-life-threatening injuries. Back at the boat, the mother and toddler remained on board. Fritz quickly learned Pimentel and his son were still missing in the water. The captains tell us the boat’s small, mushroom anchor was dragging and the boat was drifting further and further away—about a half-mile from where they rescued the 12-year-old. The jetskiers kept looking for the two missing swimmers as they waited for emergency crews to arrive. “We kept going back and forth and back and forth frantically looking. And then I went back to the mother and I said, ‘We got to get your anchor down. You’re going too far away,’” Fritz recalls. Another boat arrived and was able to get the Sea Ray secured. They looked for the missing victims in the water and along the shoreline, in case they’d become caught up in a branch. “We were definitely losing hope after about 10 minutes,” Fritz says. A major search effort was launched to find the missing father and son, which included NRP, the Coast Guard, Cobb Island Volunteer Fire/EMS, Charles County Dive and Rescue, Newburg Volunteer Fire, Bel Alton Volunteer Fire and EMS, Hughesville Volunteer EMS, Charles County Department of Emergency Services, Seventh District Fire Company, Calvert County Dive Team, and the Naval District Washington Fire/EMS. Sadly, the Charles County Dive Team recovered the boy’s body from the water around 10:45 p.m. Monday. Search efforts continued through the night and Pimentel ’s body was found at 11 a.m. Tuesday. The Maryland Natural Resources Police are investigating the case.

Pellison said the new buoys are just a single part of a larger program to save right whales. “It is hard to know exactly how many animals have been saved by this technology,” she said. The results of the Virginia buoy are not online yet, but should be soon. Results from other coastal buoys are visible at Robots4whales (robots4whales. whoi.edu/). The site displays a simple list of buoy locations, and any whale species detected within

the last three days. A wealth of information on right whales is provided by NOAA at fisheries.noaa.gov/national/ endangered-species-conservation/ reducing-vessel-strikes-north-atlanticright-whales. CMA CGM funded the buoys. CMA CGM Group is a worldwide shipping company that serves 420 ports around the world, and maintains a f leet of 580 vessels. WHOI is a private non-profit based in Cape Cod, Mass., dedicated to marine research, engineering, and higher education.



ragedy struck a family swimming off an anchored boat Monday afternoon on the Potomac River when they began to drift away from the boat. In the end, a father and his 10-year-old son would both lose their lives in the water. Maryland Natural Resources Police (NRP) say it happened just before 5 p.m. Monday just off Swan Point in Charles County. A 23-foot Sea Ray bowrider was anchored with a family of five on board. Elias Isai Sandoval Pimentel, 43, of Front Royal, Va., was on the boat with his wife

and three children—a 12-year-old girl, 10-year-old boy, and a toddler-aged child. The two older children were swimming off the boat when both of them began to struggle in the water, NRP says. Pimentel jumped in to try to help his children, but he and his son both disappeared into the water and didn’t resurface. The family’s 12-year-old daughter, who was barely af loat, survived thanks to a pair of passing jetskiers. Bay Bulletin spoke exclusively to the jetskiing eyewitnesses, who are experienced boat captains and instructors with our sister company, the Annapolis School of Seamanship.



hen whales meet ships in the ocean, it usually doesn’t end well for the whales. That is why the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute (WHOI) and shipping company CMA CGM have teamed up and placed a whale-sensing buoy off the Chesapeake Bay. The buoy will help ships avoid endangered North Atlantic right whales. According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), only around 350 North Atlantic right whales are known to exist. Adults can grow to just over 50-feet, while calves are about 14-feet long at birth. They communicate with low frequency sounds. They migrate north, off New England, in warmer months and return to southern waters in winter. They like to congregate on the surface, forming what are called surface-active groups (SAGs). Unfortunately, these SAGs made the whales easy to hunt, which is partly how they got their name. They were the “right” whale to hunt because they lounge around on the surface, and f loat after they die. They are no longer hunted, but SAGs expose the whales to vessel strikes. Vessel strikes

and entanglement in fishing gear are major threats to the whales. WHOI has developed acoustic buoys that can hear right whales as well as other whale species. The buoys pick up the whale sounds, and transmit the sounds back to WHOI. The sounds are analyzed to determine species, and the results are posted in almost real time. The delay from sensing and publishing is around two hours. This information will allow ships to slow down or take other actions to reduce whale strikes. According to Suzanne Pelisson, director of public relations at WHOI, “Locations off the coast of Norfolk and Savannah were chosen for the new systems because the ports are among the busiest in the United States, which often puts ships directly in the path of migrating right whales. The new buoys will fill a critical gap as they join a monitoring network of six similar buoys along the East Coast, bringing the total number of buoys to eight. Adding these locations to the existing network of acoustic buoys is pivotal to providing more complete monitoring of the East Coast of the United States.”

Shooters and other classic oyster recipes are in full force during National Oyster Weekend. Photo: Oyster Recovery Partnership/Facebook.



t’s a holiday that most Chesapeake Bay enthusiasts can get behind: Na-

tional Oyster Weekend, a time when we’re encouraged to seek out oyster dishes at restaurants that recycle used shells for oyster restoration projects. Oyster Recovery Partnership (ORP), the Annapolis-based oyster restoration nonprofit, has expanded National Oyster Day (Aug. 5) into a whole weekend of oyster specials, with help from a 2021 proclamation by Maryland Governor Larry Hogan.

Many restaurants that are members of the Shell Recycling Alliance, the nation’s largest shell recycling network, are offering promotions like buy one, get one free, drink pairings, or special dishes throughout the weekend. Participating restaurants and oyster bars range in location from Baltimore County to Salisbury to Alexandria. Even Guinness Open Gate Brewery, the beermaker’s only U.S. brewery, is in on the action with oyster and beer specials. Many of us order oysters to slurp and don’t think much about what happens to the shells when the plates are cleared from the table. But restaurants who commit to recycling shells with ORP or the Chesapeake Bay Foundation can make a big impact. The Irish Restaurant Company has four restaurants in Anne Arundel County participating in National Oyster Weekend. All four recycle their shells for oyster restoration. The restaurant group tells us, “Galway Bay (downtown Annapolis) alone shucked 39 ½ bushels of oyster shells as a member of the Oyster Recovery Partnership’s Shell Recycling Alliance. Those shells will support the planting of 197,740 oysters in the Chesapeake Bay.” Recycled shells are critial for ORP to plant new oyster spat onto before they are deposited in protected sanctuary reefs, bolstering oyster populations and filtering the water to improve the qual-

Find the full list of participating restaurants in Maryland, Virginia and Washington D.C.: oysterrecovery.org/ national-oyster-day-2022/. If you’d like to recycle your own oysters eaten at home, ORP also has 70 public drop sites in the mid-Atlantic region.

Virginia Beach-based Navy pilot has just made history, becoming the first female member of the beloved Blue Angels flight demonstration squad. Lt. Amanda Lee, originally from Mounds View, Minn., is among the six newest officers selected to join the Blue Angels squadron for the 2023 air show season. Lee is currently a member of the “Gladiators” of Strike Fighter Squadron (VFA) 106, based at Naval Air Station Oceana in Virginia Beach. The Gladiators’ mission is to train Navy and Marine Corps F/A-18 Super Hornet Replacement Pilots and Weapon Systems Officers for the East Coast. While hundreds of women have served in the U.S. Navy over the last 55 years, Lee is the first to represent them as a F/A18E/F demonstration pilot. Capt. Katie Higgins, from Severna Park, formerly served as pilot of Fat Albert, the C-130J Hercules aircraft we see circling before and during Blue Angels flight demonstrations. But Lee will join the team that flies the fighter jets themselves. Each year, the Blue Angels select finalists to interview at NAS Pensacola, Fla., during the week of the Pensacola Beach Air Show. This year it took place July 6-9, and the six officers chosen were announced at the end of the week. A couple of the other six selected will stir some local pride. New Blue Angel Lt. Cmdr. Thomas Zimmerman, from Baltimore, graduated from the Naval Academy in 2009. Zimmerman is currently assigned to the “Red Rippers” of Strike Fighter Squadron (VFA) 11. And new Blue Angels flight surgeon Lt. Philippe Warren hails from Williamsburg, Va. “We had an overwhelming number of applicants from all over the globe this year,” said Capt. Brian Kesselring, commanding officer and flight leader of the Blue Angels. “We look forward to training our fantastic new team members, passing on the torch, and watching the incredible things this team will accomplish in 2023.” The new team members will report in September and take on a rigorous fivemonth training program at NAS Pensacola and Naval Air Facility El Centro, Calif., beginning in November. NAS Oceana, where Lee is stationed now, will hold its annual air show Sept. 17-18, 2022, headlined, of course, by the Blue Angels. The Angels have performed for crowds since 1946, attracting an estimated 500 million fans to their shows over the years. August 4 - August 11, 2022 • CBM BAY WEEKLY • 5

New Owners Take Helm of Marine Art Gallery

The space may look different, but the contents of the gallery continue to feature original works from artists such as John Barber, William Bond, Tim Thompson, Paul Landry, and Joyful Enriquez.



fter 22 years as the owner of the Annapolis Marine Art Gallery at 110 Dock Street in downtown Annapolis, Jeffrey Schaub has decided to retire. The gallery, which opened in 1978, has been a fixture in City Dock for four decades. Now it’s getting a fresh coat of paint and a new team at the helm. Kate and Samantha Wilkerson of Crofton are the mother-daughter duo that will now work to maintain the gallery’s maritime spirit. Samantha was working as a sales associate at the gallery when Schaub when announced his intentions to sell the business. She had no difficulties convincing her mom Kate that purchasing the gallery would be a great family investment and would allow the iconic gallery to continue to operate. Samantha, who has a master’s degree in art administration, is now a co-owner with Kate, who was looking for a second career as she contemplated retirement from the healthcare field. “Once the sale was finalized, our first order of business was to remodel. In addition to fresh paint throughout the gallery, we opened the main display sales area by moving a wall to bring in more

The space may look different, but the contents of the gallery continue a long tradition of featuring original works from artists such as John Barber, William Bond, Tim Thompson,

Paul Landry, and Joyful Enriquez. The gallery also features a number of local artists such as Sharon Littig, Collin Cessna, and Christopher Forrest. Being just steps away from the Naval Academy, the gallery carries a large collection of USNA artwork from local artists and offers prints and original art depicting maritime military history. The gallery is open Monday through Saturday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Visit: annapolismarineart.com/ Instagram: @annapolis_marineartgallery.

Theater Group Breaks Ground on Expansion BY JIM REITER


hildren’s Theatre of Annapolis recently broke ground on an expansion of its Bay Head Road facility to include a new lobby, a black box theater, classrooms, and more. The additions will complement the existing 235-seat main stage theater. CTA has been producing theater for 5- to 18-year-olds since 1959, and according to President Michelle Bruno, the organization’s facilities will continue to be available to others. “This is a community space,” Bruno said. The organization currently provides space to local dance studios and plans to provide space in a new lobby for local artists to display their works. The changes “have been in discussion for years,” said Bruno. The goal is to renovate the organization’s current annex into a black box theater, add two classrooms, office space, the lobby, and outside, a rain garden. The new classrooms will allow CTA to expand its educational offerings, while the black box theater will provide a place to stage smaller productions and other performances that don’t need a bigger stage and auditorium. The CTA board worked to secure

Heather Bagnall, a CTA alumna, helped the organization connect

with the grant-providing departments. Bagnall and County Executive Steuart Pittman joined the CTA Board at the groundbreaking, where Pittman shared the impact his own experience in theater has had on him. “When I look back on

being able to get in front of a group of people and talk—it was just such a big turning point in my life that it feels really good to make it possible for others,” he said. CTA anticipates that the expansion will be complete in fall 2023. •

Pet Safety Vital in Summer Temps BY DUFFY PERKINS


very pet owner knows the scenario: your shoes are on your feet, your wallet is in your hand, and just as you grab your keys to run a quick errand, your animal is in front of the door with that look. The “Don’t leave me” look. The “I love car rides” look. The “I can’t live

without you” look. And while your pup may tug at your heartstrings just as strongly as their leash, allowing your pet to join you on car rides can spell an unseen disaster for you both. Leaving your wingman in a hot car can be not only cruel, but deadly.

A typical run into the grocery store might take you less than 10 minutes. But on an 85-degree day, a car left with windows cracked open can reach 102 degrees within just 10 minutes. After 20 minutes, it can reach 119 degrees. The average temperature in Anne Arundel

County throughout the month of August is 87 degrees. “Year-round, I would never recommend leaving a pet in a car,” says Robin Catlett, administrator at Anne Arundel Animal Care and Control. “If your pet can go in the store with you, it’s very different. But even at 70 degrees, things can become very hot, very quick.” Perhaps instead of banking on your ability to sprint through the grocery store, it’s best if your pup stays on the couch this trip. Humidity is also a factor. When you see your pet panting, they’re evaporating moisture from their lungs in an attempt to take heat away from their bodies. If an animal is stuck in a hot, humid car, they’ll be unable to cool themselves and instead their temperatures will spike to dangerous levels very quickly. Cats and dog breeds with shorter muzzles (such as boxers, pugs, and shih tzus) have a much harder time breathing in extreme heat and should avoid it. Signs of Heatstroke in Animals Since your buddy can’t tell you when they’re too hot, the good pet owner needs to look for the signs of a heatstroke. Be sure to watch for: •Heavier than usual panting •Difficulty breathing •Excessive thirst •Lethargy •Dizziness or lack of coordination •Profuse salivation and/or vomiting •Seizure and unconsciousness

What to do if you see an animal locked in a hot car

Sully, a 1 1/2-year old Lab/shepherd mix, sent in by Dottie Wojciechowski.

Under Maryland Transportation Section 21-1004.1, “A person may not leave a cat or dog unattended in a standing or parked motor vehicle in a manner that endangers the health or safety of the cat or dog.” That said, if you see an animal that has been left abandoned in a car and is not in visible distress, the first sign is to look for the owner. “We encourage people to go to nearby businesses to page owners and get them to the car as soon as possible,” says Catlett. Tell the store owner the make and model of the car, and the type of animal involved. Then call the non-emergency police line or Animal Control. But if the animal is showing signs of distress and the owners are not around, the next move is to call 911. “A police officer will get to the animal faster than animal control can, just due to numbers,” says Catlett. Law enforcement can be trusted to assess the situation and then use Animal Control as a care provider. And since leaving an animal in a car on a hot day falls under the authority of transportation jurisdiction, the police have the ability to charge the CONTINUED

THE PET ISSUE owners with neglect. Maryland does not have a Good Samaritan law enabling the public to break into a car to save a distressed animal. Only law enforcement officers, animal control officers, public safety officers, and fire and rescue volunteers hold that authority. If you see an animal in distress, wait with the car until the appropriate authorities are on the scene. They will transport the animal to Animal Control or another care provider.

How to help a distressed animal If your pet is experiencing the signs of heatstroke, immediate action is necessary. Getting the animal into the shade or preferably an air-conditioned area should be your first priority. Then, apply cool compacts to the animal ’s head, chest, and neck. Rapid temperature f luctuations are not good for the animal, so make sure the compresses are cool, not cold. If possible, run cool (not cold) water over them, and give them small amounts of water to drink. As soon as you are able, get the dog to a veterinarian for assessment. Heatstroke can cause significant neurological damage and organ failure, so getting the animal examined immediately is ideal. Part of being a good pet owner involves making the best decisions for your animal ’s health and happiness. Until the temperatures cool, make the best call for your buddy and leave them at home. While they might give you the world’s most pitiful look as you walk out the door, you’ll know that you’re doing what’s best for everyone. Non-emergency police line, Anne Arundel Co: 410-222-8050.

Home For Disabled Pets Uplifts Dogs, Owners BY NOAH HALE


uch like people, every dog is different. They have their own personalities, favorite foods and toys, and their very own set of pet peeves (although most dogs would agree that the vacuum cleaner might be the most dreadful of all). And, like humans, they want a place where they can be themselves and be cared for and loved. For dogs with physical challenges, such as long-term illness or handicaps such as deafness, blindness, or missing limbs, a home and caregivers that can meet their special needs matters tremendously.

Pets With Disabilities is a nonprofit organization in Prince Frederick that helps find forever homes for dogs and cats who need special attention. Joyce Darrell and Mike Dickerson founded their rescue facility in 2005 to answer these needs after their dog Duke injured his spinal cord. For the rest of his life Duke used a special wheelchair to help him move around and enjoy his life like any other dog. Darrell and Dickerson made sure of it. “When we adopted Duke and took him home it was a commitment through sickness and health. He was part of our family,” says Darrell. A few months after adopting Duke, the couple learned about a dog named Misty. One of her hind legs was impaired and, like Duke, she needed to use a wheelchair. Misty had been in a New York shelter for more than five years

where hundreds of people had passed her over. They adopted her immediately. It was the beginning of a grassroots movement that quickly became a source of heartwarming adoption stories and miraculous recoveries. Kristy Anderson, operations manager, says the rescue facility offers multiple amenities for its guests. There’s the Barn, where dogs can hang out near the offices in a homey environment; the Annex Apartments, two climate controlled cottages reserved for the smaller dogs; and the more recent Regal Beagle House where the senior dogs stay. There’s also an adoption center where families can meet their next potential addition. Great care is taken to ensure each dog’s comfort and unique needs across the whole facility. “We’ve had dogs on the brink of death and brought them back to life,”

Photos: PWD. said Anderson. “This place is small but mighty.” Kim Sisco adopted Austen, her border-collie mix, by accident. Sisco and her husband visited the rescue facility because her husband was looking for a dog—and she was certain she was not. But after meeting Austen, she knew that he was “the one”. At the time, he was the first dog housed at the facility for missing a front leg. Sisco, an avid hiker, wanted to make sure that her active lifestyle wouldn’t mean leaving Austen behind. “My biggest question was, ‘What will he be able to do?’” Soon she found a way that would allow Austen to join her on her treks: a special backpack to carry him with. When he isn’t going on hikes, he serves as a poster pup for other dogs with disabilities. “He’s a normal dog,” Sisco said. “There’s really no difference.” Despite the missing leg, one of

his favorite pastimes is playing with other dogs at the dog park. Rob Amos of Bowie, emphasized how “normal” his dogs are despite their disabilities. “The dog doesn’t know it has a disability,” he said. “It doesn’t play or act any differently than a normal dog does.” One of his dogs, Chuck, is blind, but that didn’t stop him from learning how to navigate his new home in just an hour. Now, he knows where to jump if he wants to steal Amos’s favorite chair. “He also gives a really good stinkeye, too,” Amos said. Adopters form a friendly network and often stay in touch with Darrell and Dickerson, attending events and fundraisers to further support the organization. “They feel like family,” Amos said.

We treat every animal as if it were our own!

CARING FOR YOUR PET’S EYE HEALTH THE LEADING CAUSES of blindness in people can also affect our fourlegged friends. Glaucoma, cataracts, and diabetic eye disease are conditions shared by both humans and animals. But unlike their owners, pets can’t tell you when something is wrong, and most of them don’t do as well on eye charts, so telling when an animal has an eye problem can be difficult. Clouding in the lens or on the surface of the eye, discharge and redness from the eye, and frequent bumping into objects—especially at night—can be signs of eye disease.

Regular check-ups with a veterinarian that includes blood work, like blood sugar testing, can help determine if your pet is at risk for eye disease. Eye protection is important for our pets. Injuries can occur when dogs stick their heads out of the car window while it’s in motion, which can expose their pet’s eyes to flying objects and debris. Try using a pair of Doggles—the canine equivalent of sunglasses. They provide protection from debris and UV rays, too. —Dr. Dean Gogerdchi, Tidewater Family Eye Care in Edgewater

THE PET ISSUE State Pride on Display with Pet Gear BY JUDY COLBERT


arylanders can’t agree on some things: J.O. or Old Bay, Berger’s cookies or Otterbein’s, Wawa or Royal Farms, crabcakes broiled or fried, or even how to pronounce Weis. We do love our state flag though. It’s the design on our favorite blanket, coffee cup, keychain and an abundance of apparel. Almost as popular as the flag are items with the logos of Natty Boh, Old Bay, the Orioles, the Ravens, or the University of Maryland Terrapins. You can even buy a doggie bed with the University of Maryland football stadium design on it. Maryland-themed items can be found in grocery stores, museums, stadiums and art galleries. Dressing your fur baby in Maryland apparel makes him or her too cute for words. But where do you find a bit of Maryland pride for your pets? We have suggestions for you. Start at Sea Dog Pet Boutique, a relatively new shop in Annapolis that stocks unique items including pet toys, collars, and treats, specifically items from Sweet Paws Bakery and Sweet Piggy Baking Company. You can find a collar, bowtie, leash, or bandana with the Maryland f lag, Natty Boh, a map of the Chesapeake Bay, or the U.S. Naval Academy themes. All their Maryland items are locally made. Owner Karen Komisar aims to make the experience easy and fun. “High-quality products should not be hard to find,” she says. Sea Dog Pet Boutique, 172 Main Street, Annapolis, 410-946-6800, seadogpetboutique.com

Caren Milliken, buyer and merchandiser for the Greenstreet GreenPaws department invites you to check out the space. “We have stuffed crab toys, leashes, water bowls, and Bay Shore products, including life jackets, and toy buoys. We have bath products, treats, toys, harnesses, and collars. And, the store is pet-friendly, so you can bring your loved one in to make sure something fits and that your pooch likes it.” Greenstreet Gardens, 391 W.

Pandemic Pet Adoptions Leads to Need for More Services BY BARRY SCHER


ith millions of people stuck in their homes during the pandemic, the number of people adopting pets soared. According to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA), close to one in five households acquired a dog or cat since the beginning of the COVID-19 crisis, which would be approximately 23 million American households. Thankfully, most of those pets are now cherished family members. “This incredibly stressful period motivated many people to foster and adopt animals, as well as further cherish the pets already in their lives, and our recent research shows no significant risk of animals being rehomed by their owners now or in the near future as a result of the lifting of pandemic-related restrictions,” says ASPCA CEO Matt Bershadker. But now that many working adults are heading back to their offices, the need for pet care and services is skyrocketing. There is a new and growing market for dog walkers, pet sitters and even poop removal specialists. There is also an emerging trend for pet services that go above the norm. Eastport resident Alexandra Trasatti recognized that trend and after many months of research, she developed a business plan to launch Sailor’s Dog Walking and Pet Care. “I realized that there are other pet care specialists in the area, so I developed a plan to differentiate my business from what others offer, yet I do not hesitate to show support for other local pet businesses by highlighting their special services in my promotional package,” says Trasatti. “Therefore, we have worked with Sweet Piggy Baking Company, Sea Dog Pet Boutique, Bark ‘N’ Bean, Dirty Paws Dog Spa and others to coordinate pet needs and services.” Trasatti has always dreamed of owning a pet care business, she says, and after graduating from the University of Maryland in 2021 with a degree in communications, she formulated her

Her inspiration is a rescue dog with special needs, named Sailor. Sailor has epilepsy, food allergies, and diabetes. “Through caring for him, I learned how to administer insulin, check blood sugar, properly provide eye and ear drops, administer pills and powders, and provide the healthiest foods,” Trasatti says. “His special needs drove me to create a business that revolves around providing care for each dog’s individual needs.” Trasatti may be the firm’s CEO, but she proudly states that Sailor is the firm’s CBO: Chief Barking Officer. Sailor’s is insured and bonded by Pet Sitters Associates, an insurance company specifically tailored to the needs of pet care providers. The business is also certified in cat and dog first aid by the American Red Cross in preventive care, including administering CPR, providing emergency care to handle seizures, address wounds, and breathing and cardiac emergencies. Sailor’s utilizes a top-of-the-line pet care software program that allows timed GPS walks, in-app messaging, secured invoicing, mobile scheduling, report cards, and even pictures of client’s pets while away from their owners. The business provides services from basic timed walks to overnight stays in a client’s home for as many days or nights as required. “Staying overnight with a pet in their usual surroundings is often much less stressful than placing a pet

in unfamiliar surroundings in a cage away from their home,” says Trasatti. She even provides a pet-to-vet taxi service which includes staying with pets during their check ups, and a Bark to the Park program with jaunts to Quiet Waters Park. All clients receive a mandatory initial consultation and there is also a membership program where clients get perks for utilizing their services which is quite unique in the pet industry. Sailor’s services pets in the greater Annapolis area including Eastport, Edgewater, Parole, Crownsville, Riva, Mayo, and Arnold. For more information about Sailor’s: sailorspetcare.com.

he sun rises over the rolling hills of En-Tice-Ment Stables as long-time resident Maestro grazes away, with Onyx and Cinders not far off. These horses’ days of showing and competing are long past— they now have a much more critical job. As lesson horses, they are teaching the next generation of riders and fostering a love of animals in everyone they meet. Deana Tice started En-Tice-Ment Stables decades ago, and it continues to f lourish. She now runs it alongside her niece and many others. It has been a home away from home and a haven for countless individuals and there are always more arriving. This camaraderie and collaboration all started with one thing, the humble lesson horse. A place for the young and old, from toddlers to accomplished competitors, it’s a business that has been built on the backs of lesson horses. They have heard more stories, dried more tears, and carried more dreams in their lifetimes than any household pet could imagine. Owning and caring for horses is not feasible for everyone and these lesson horses allow riders from all walks of life to have a horse as a part of their family and weekly routine.

Hundreds of people come to the farm each week, eager to see if they’ll be riding their favorite horse or meeting a new one. For a short time each week, that horse is their friend, their partner, their most cherished pet. While a dog or cat may touch a handful of lives in their time, every lesson horse holds the hearts of hundreds. These horses’ impact lasts much longer than the time it takes to ride. They are lifelong friends and teachers. Brittany Tice trained the horse named Bailey Irish Mudslide (aka Bailey) many moons ago and now is helping to teach her oldest daughter how to canter. Apache Storm “Buddy” taught Hailey Johnson how to ride. Hailey is now a full-time trainer and teaches countless riders on the very pony she grew up on. They don’t just teach how to ride, they teach life lessons. They are steady enough to teach but just stubborn enough to challenge—they know their job and expect the same from their rider. They are not a ball or a bat, they have minds of their own and

These animals teach perseverance, dedication, and hard work, to dozens of people every single day. They are teachers— just as a dog may teach responsibility and compassion, these

horses do the same. A pet is an animal that is a part of a family and brings pleasure to those around them. Lesson horses are just that, except they aren’t part of one family, they’re part of hundreds. •

Amber Midthunder in Prey.


The Predator franchise finally finds its feet with this bloody fun film ON HULU AUG. 5


n 1719, the lands of the Comanche Nation are getting crowded. French fur trappers are slaughtering whole herds of buffalo, giant mountain lions are stalking people because buffalo are scarce, and a murderous alien has picked this section of land as its new hunting ground. The alien, at least, is only visiting. This species has a tradition: it’s been dropped off in the wilderness to kill the most dangerous creatures it can find, while ignoring all things that don’t prove a threat, thus proving itself the superior hunter. It doesn’t take long for this alien to recognize that humans are a far more worthy adversary than wolves and mountain lions. Because the alien has cloaking abilities, it goes unnoticed while stalking its new prey. At least, it thought it was unnoticed. Young Naru (Amber Midthunder: The Wheel) is trying to prove herself as a Comanche tracker and warrior. Though skilled with herbal medicines, she wants to take after her brother Taabe (Dakota Beavers in his debut) as one of the most respected warriors in the tribe. Though everyone but Taabe dismisses this dream, Naru remains steadfast that she has the skills. She has noticed something otherworldly leaving tracks around their camp. Now if only someone would believe her before the carnage starts… Let’s be frank, the last few entries in the Predator franchise were so toothless the titular Predator would ignore them as non-threatening. Prey brings the franchise back to the bloody basics that made the original film so popular, making this the first entry in decades that’s had some bite. Director Dan Trachtenberg (10 Cloverfield Lane) rights the franchise through an interesting story and some visceral action. It’s everything you want in a Predator movie: gruesome kills and characters you hope survive their encounters. The only thing missing is cheesy ‘80s action one-liners, but those are probably best reserved for the revelry of tes-

tosterone and baby-oiled biceps that was the original film. Prey also steps away from the original film with a redesign of the Predator character. The hulking alien is still terrifying, don’t worry, but the movie gives his tech a period-appropriate makeover. Instead of firing lasers, this Predator is using targeted arrows and a lower-tech cloaking device. The downgrade in technology doesn’t slow the hunter down, however. Trachtenberg has several gore-stuffed action sequences of the Predator fighting everything from a group of humans to a bear. If you’re squeamish, this is not a film for you. The other upside of Prey is that the story of a Comanche tribe taking on an alien isn’t treated as a gimmick. The cast and crew took pains to craft an authentic locale and storyline. One of the film’s producers, Jhane Myers, is a member of the Comanche Nation. The filmmakers worked closely with Comanche cultural and language consultants so that the film accurately portrays the tribe’s life. Though the film is in English, the cast returned to record a Comanche dub of the film—the first Comanche dub of a commercial film in history—which will be available on Hulu. Beyond the gore and the cool new setting, the film has some lovely beats between Naru and her family. She’s a flawed, but determined protagonist, and it’s nice to see a supportive brother in Taabe. Both actors are relative newcomers to film and manage to carry their scenes beautifully, even when they’re facing off with a 7-foot alien. If you’re new to the franchise, consider starting here, then revisiting the original and its sequel (all on Hulu). The other Predator films as well as the odious Alien vs. Predator franchise are also available, but trust me when I tell you to stop while you’re ahead. If you’re a fan of the Predator films, this is easily the best in the franchise since the 1990 sequel. Though the sense of humor is somewhat muted, the thrills and dynamic action are here in spades. So, pop some popcorn, steel yourself for the fighting, and enjoy some solid character-driven action. And if you yell GET TO THE CHOPPA a few times, I won’t tell… Good Action * R * 99 mins. •

Luring Moths to North Beach


ast weekend, I spent time in the Wetlands Overlook Park in North Beach trying to lure f lying organisms into a sheet. It was a weekend event organized by naturalist Lisa Garrett as part of National Moth Week, observed the last week of July. Garrett’s official title is North Beach Director of Eco-Tourism. This event was the second (with hopes to become an annual) moth watch. National Moth Week began in 2012 by a non-profit organization in New Jersey, The Friends of the East Brunswick Environmental Commission (nationalmothweek.org). It is gaining popularity as a global citizen science project to help monitor the moth population. All 50 states and 80 countries have participants. On Friday, large white cloths were

hung on two sides of the park’s two gazebos. On the first gazebo, a standard 60W incandescent bulb directed light down onto the cloth. At the second gazebo, panels of ultraviolet lights were used. As an added incentive, Garrett bushed a special homemade moth attractant onto parts of the cloth and on several trees in the park. The method is called sugaring. The recipe for the bait was a mixture of overripe bananas, molasses and beer. The ingredients are put into a jar and allowed to ferment for a few days. The resulting smell was pretty sweet and intense, sure to attract moths and butterflies from long distances. Both have a great sense of smell and will come from far away to investigate. But despite the lure, Friday night was not a great night to attract moths. As

we were setting up in the afternoon, it was warm and still, which was good, but a cold front passed over just as it was getting dark. It became cooler and breezy which was bad for moths and the event. While we waited for the dark and the moths to arrive, Garrett gathered us in the visitor center to talk about the life history of moths, why they are attracted to light, what caterpillars we should avoid, and gave out moth information, coloring pages and wildflower seeds. We later walked on the boardwalk and found spiders and a resting dragonfly. Despite the preparation, only a few small moths came to the light and the moth attractant only had fruit flies and ants on it. On Saturday, there was no breeze and it had warmed up. Rashon Vian, a 12-year-old from Columbia, was among the 35 people who showed up. Rashon is an enthusiastic entomologist—he wore

a Moth Week Citizen Scientist t-shirt to the event and brought his own UV lights. This night, there were many species of moths in attendance, including a mantidfly and a huge Hercules beetle. Rashon told Garrett that he was going to report their findings on the iNaturalist app. National Moth Week is an invitation for anyone to participate in simple science that will likely become important to understanding our changing planet. A couple of white sheets, a couple of lights and a lounge chair are all you need. Every yard will attract different species from the collection done by the marsh. I was hoping for a giant Luna moth or an Io moth. Maybe I’ll see one at next year’s Moth Week. • Thanks to Lisa Garrett and Michelle Lancombe for making my visit possible.



Goats in the Garden


oats are some of my favorite animals. Here at Beaver Creek Cottage Garden, we have two females and a wether (a castrated male). Allspice and Frosty are half Oberhasli goats; Rose Petal is a Nigerian pygmy. Oberhasli are a rare breed of Swiss Alpine goats that are mostly brown with black markings. They are known for their sweet-tasting milk and creamy, flavorful cheese. They have a calm, gentle disposition and are prized as strong, reliable pack animals. The Oberhasli is listed as recovering on the Livestock Conservancies Conservation Priority List because numbers have improved globally.

Miniature goats are smaller and easier to handle than regular-sized goats. Oberhasli are good for small-scale family or homestead use. They give less milk, which works out nicely when large goats produce more milk than you can use. The milk from miniature goats tastes sweeter than other goats’ milk because it is higher in fat. Over the past 40 years, I have used my goats to slowly help clear land, especially underbrush composed of greenbriers and poison ivy. Goats love poison ivy, which is a good thing since, thanks to global warming, scientists say poison ivy is becoming more virulent. The increased carbon dioxide

in the atmosphere allows the plant to produce more urushiol, the active compound in poison ivy. Using goats to eat poison ivy and other weeds is a good alternative to herbicides. Just be sure there are no wild cherry trees around as they are toxic to goats. You can tether goats since they also relish roses and vegetable gardens, and they will put a lot of thought into how to get into your garden. One bonus: their manure is great for the compost pile. Goats are popular all over the world. They provide companionship, brush control, delicious milk, and soft hair to spin into warm yarn. Goats are inexpensive to keep, require simple housing, do not need a lot of space and can be as sweet as a dog. •



Infection Sidelines Sporting Dog


f there’s one thing my black Lab, Hobbes, loves to do more than run hard in a field of thick cover, rich with the scent of game, it’s to plunge wildly into deep, cool waters in pursuit of one of his favorite bumpers or better yet, a downed duck or goose. But last weekend, while he assured me he was still eager, it was all we could do to pace around the edges of our favorite river. Shaking his head again and pulling his leash, he gave me that wistful look that said, “I’m ready boss, why can’t I go, what did I do?” All I could do was stroke his coat and say, “Good boy, easy boy, not yet.” Hobbes had an ear infection and I was not going to make it worse, though I already had. Over two years ago, he got a nasty ear canal affliction after swimming in the Bay and our vet had warned us that such an infection was a common occurrence. The Bay has always harbored toxins and bacteria, particularly during summer months and it was prudent to be cautious and prepared. She provided eardrops to use after every outing, just in case. Of course, eventually, the drops ran low, we misplaced the bottle and then eventually forgot about the practice. Hobbes seemed impervious—till now, and since the infection emerged on a weekend, the vet clinics were full up or closed.

We’d been swimming him regularly in the hot weather, rinsing him well but doing little else. Remorse lay heavily on my shoulders as Hobbes scratched the side of his head and whined as he lay down in front of the couch. Searching our medicine cabinet for some relief for him, I did discover some Aspercreme with lidocaine, antibiotic ointment, and some aspirin tablets. I’m quite aware that you’re not to give a dog any human meds without reviewing them with a vet but I’ve gone over these items with the white coats before and they’ve always given me a green light. So I squirted some cream and ointment on my finger, worked it into his ear canal, buried a single aspirin tablet in a piece of leftover steak and he gobbled it down. Then both of us finally went to sleep. A Labrador is usually a rugged, trouble-free dog and nothing seems to bother Hobbes. He doesn’t notice any scrapes or cuts and apparently can eat anything without ill effects. Frankly, it’s caused me to be incautious in caring for him—double guilt. I used to always have plentiful first aid supplies on hand for my German shorthaired pointers and I took particular care of them, mostly because they had virtually no undercoat to protect them; skin sores and cuts were a common occurrence. Hobbes, on the other hand, is like an

armored tank—he doesn’t seem affected by sharp briers or anything else in the fields. He enjoys flinging himself into the thickest cover imaginable. Now, as we wait for his vet appointment to arrive, I’m ordering up a supply of canine first aid gear and in the years since my shorthaireds, there seems to have been an explosion of items available. Years past I had to discuss most gear with my vet, but now there are scads of assemblies, already vet-approved for all types of animals. The very first is a simple, soft muzzle. An injury can cause a dog to panic and— no matter how gentle they normally are—can instinctively bite anything perceived as causing the pain, which may include you. Muzzle your pet before you examine the area. Have extra hands

to help if only to distract them. A general dog safe wound and antiseptic spray is helpful to have on hand for minor abrasions and the same in an ointment or salve form for more intense coverage. A small flashlight for closer inspections and rolls of medical gauze will come in handy for more serious injuries and to staunch bleeding. A consult with your vet will fill out the list. These suggestions are only intended for short-term treatment and a prompt appointment with a vet should be scheduled to insure the animal’s well being. Keep your vet’s phone number with you including the emergency service contact numbers. And always remember the mantra of the adventurous sportsperson, “When you least expect it, expect it.” •

the money.

The trail to the top of Pike's Peak in Colorado is some 13 miles long, and the peak itself tops out at more than 14,000 feet—making it a challenging hike for anyone. But for Bob Salem, 53, the journey is nuttily complicated: He's pushing a peanut up the mountain using his "nose": customized headgear made of a CPAP mask with a black plastic serving spoon attached to it, NPR reported. "Basically, I'm just going to ... low crawl my way up there," he said. "I mean, there's not really much to it but just to keep flicking." It's all part of the Manitou Springs 150-Year Celebration, and Salem is raising money for a local charity that works to house people experiencing homelessness. Oddly, he's not the first to achieve the feat, but he'll be the first in the 21st century. Salem is wearing kneepads and elbow pads, and a spotter carries his backpack with a snowsuit inside for the higher elevations. He reached the summit July 15.

Recurring Theme Well, it's happened again: An American tourist at Mount Vesuvius near Naples, Italy, dropped his cellphone into the volcano's crater on July 9, the Associated Press reported, and then slid into the crater trying to retrieve it. Four volcano guides lowered a rope 50 feet into the crater, where Philip Carroll, 23, of Baltimore, was in "serious difficulty," and pulled him out. After officials administered first aid, Carroll and two family members were cited by police for going off the authorized trail to snap a selfie. He suffered only abrasions—and the humiliation of a trip to the police station. No word how the phone fared.

Awesome! On July 10, as Rich Gilson used a mini-excavator to remove part of the foundation under the porch of his 1920s-era New Jersey home, he came across an unusual windfall: Among the weeds and dirt were two bundles of paper, secured with rubber bands, United Press International reported. "I got to look at the edge and it had a green tint to it, and I said, 'This is money,'" Gilson said. The cash, printed in 1934, amounted to $1,000 in $10 and $20 bills. Gilson said the area where he found the money was previously accessible only through a crawlspace: "Somebody had to crawl under there and dig a hole. My sense is that something fishy happened," he added. He plans to keep

Picky, Picky Penguins at the Hakone-en Aquarium near Tokyo are turning their beaks up at a new variety of fish after officials switched because of an increase in price, United Press International reported. The cost of their standard fare, aji, increased more than 30% over last year, so the aquarium tried a cheaper variety of mackerel. But the penguins aren't biting: "Even if they'll take it in their beaks, they'll just spit it out," head zookeeper Hiroki Shimamoto said. If the keepers mix in a bit of aji, they'll eat it, but without enthusiasm. The zoo's otters have the same impression of the new menu item. Shimamoto said they could raise admission prices, but "we would like to do our best to keep our facility a comfortable place for our guests to visit."

More Like 'Stupider Things' Thanks to the quick reaction of a semitruck operator, a teenage driver sustained only minor injuries after she allowed her car to drift into the oncoming lane of a suburban Minneapolis street and crash into the trailer, The Smoking Gun reported. During questioning after the mid-July incident, the girl denied being on her phone at the time of the crash, but Anoka County Sheriff's deputies noticed that her car's Bluetooth system was "still streaming the audio to 'Stranger Things' on Netflix." She then admitted to watching the popular series while driving.

Compelling Explanation Laurie Rosser, 42, of Gorseinon, Wales, was stopped while driving on the M4 on June 26 because his van was missing two tires, the BBC reported. Police estimated he had driven more than 10 miles without the tires. Rosser was Breathalyzed at the scene, where he tested at more than twice the legal limit. But he had a different explanation for his oversight: His solicitor said he had tested positive for COVID and "his mind was cloudy. That influenced his decision to drive with two defective tires on the vehicle," Rhys Davies said. Rosser was banned from driving for 17 months and fined.

dent that happened in September 2020, Metro News reported. A churchgoer at the Baptist Centre in Middleton Cheney came upon Jeffs as he stood between two chairs, wearing only ladies' stockings and being intimate with a Henry Hoover vacuum hose. Although Jeffs saw the onlooker, he reportedly continued thrusting toward the Henry, which is known for its powerful suction. Jeffs was fined about $1,000 and added to the sex offender registry; he also was ordered to pay about $240 to the person who witnessed the act.

Cut the Cheese Pun The Bridge Bakehouse in Derbyshire, England, received an anonymous letter from a "disgruntled member of the local community," the owners believe, about a sandwich that's been on the menu since last September: the Cheesus Christ. The sandwich, which features caramelized onion chutney, mature cheddar and mozzarella, sounds delicious, but the letter-writer, who claimed to be associated with the advocacy group Christian Concern, disapproved: "Our clients do not wish to take this further, but feel they will need to in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord and saviour if action is not taken." However, the Mirror reported, Christian Concern confirmed the letter did not come from them, and no other person or local church has admitted to writing it. On June 10, someone defaced the bakery's outdoor menu, covering the sandwich name with white paint. On its Facebook page, the bakery posted, "To whoever has tried to cover up the 'Cheesus Christ' sandwich on our outdoor menu board with white paint, can you please not? And if it wasn't done in the dead of night by someone dressed like The Mask of Zorro we are going to be highly disappointed."

Crime Report In Ann Arbor, Michigan, a serial pharmacy robber identified as Kristopher Kukola, 37, allegedly hit five CVS stores between May and July, demanding narcotics and displaying a gun, MLive.com reported. In the latest incident, on July 7, a fast-thinking pharmacist dropped a decoy pill bottle containing a GPS tracker into the bag. Police found Kukola escaping in a Jeep and followed the car to an apartment complex, where the thief jumped out and tried to flee on foot. When officers caught up to him, Kukola told them, "The guy you are looking for ran that

way." Investigators found a BB gun, the drugs and the decoy bottle in his Jeep; he was indicted on federal charges.

Bright Idea Maybe doughnuts don't sell so well in Arizona's extreme July heat. In any case, one grocery store chain figured out another use for the sugary treats, United Press International reported. Bashas, a grocery chain based in Chandler, Arizona, assembled 14,400 decorated confections into a mosaic of the company's logo to celebrate its 90th anniversary. As a bonus, the chain won the Guinness World Record for largest doughnut mosaic (902 square feet). After the ruling, Bashas boxed up the treats for distribution to local nonprofits.

CSI, Skeeter-Style The Global Times reported that in China's Fujian Province, investigators on a burglary case got a hot tip from a pesky source: a smashed mosquito. As police checked out the scene, they believed the suspect may have stayed overnight in the apartment; among other things, they found a piece of mosquito coil, used to deter the insects. One skeeter met its bloody demise on a wall, and investigators took DNA samples from the smear there. Analysis showed the blood belonged to a man named Chai, who had a criminal record and was arrested 19 days later for that burglary and three others.

Weird Science In the United Kingdom, environmentalists are fighting a twitchy problem: gray squirrels. The little rodents are taking over, the BBC reported, damaging woodland ecosystems and native red squirrel populations. And a cull isn't practical—they reproduce too quickly. Now, however, scientists have created a squirrel contraceptive. Dr. Giovanna Massei of the U.K.'s Animal and Plant Health Agency said her team has developed a vaccine that prompts the immune system to restrict the production of sex hormones. Squirrels will be lured into a special trap, where they'll feast on Nutella paste laced with the contraceptive. The project should be ready to deploy in the wild within two years. • Send your weird news items with subject line WEIRD NEWS to WeirdNewsTips@amuniversal.com.

Talk about your horse of a different color - and there are at least eight varieties of spotted-horse. Mention of them in the America’s goes back to Cortes (who brought one), and Lewis and Clark (who wanted one), but their image adorns prehistoric cave walls, and they were revered in ancient Greece, Persia and the Chinese Han Dynasty. They get their name from a region in Idaho and Washington where the Palouse tribe lived near the Palouse river.
