Celebrating Family WHEN YOU THINK OF FAMILY, WHAT COMES TO MIND? Maybe it’s the people you share your mornings with: the husband or wife who makes you breakfast, the toddler who wakes you up before sunrise or the drooling pup in the kitchen just itching for a full dish of food. Maybe it’s the people you share your years with: the grandfather who tells you old war stories at the Thanksgiving table, the uncle who brings you souvenirs from his travels or the aunt who can almost perfectly replicate your grandmother’s best pie recipe. Or maybe it’s the people you share your life with: the friends who have and always will be there for you, the parents who have always supported you and watched you grow or the kids who are watching and learning from you day after day.

OPEN HOUSE

(CON TI N U ED)

“THE TRUE MEASURE OF ANY SOCIETY,” MAHATMA GANDHI ONCE OBSERVED, “CAN BE FOUND IN HOW IT TREATS ITS MOST VULNERABLE MEMBERS.” This doesn’t just apply to people. After all, few among us are more vulnerable than a stray cat or an abandoned dog. That is why the Nashville Humane Association more than measures up; it sets a nationally recognized bar for state-of-the-art care for animals who need our help, making our city a better place for all, regardless of how many legs we use to walk. Founded in 1946, the NHA is an independent nonprofit and not part of any government agency or national organization. To fulfill its mission, the NHA relies entirely on donations from friends and foundations. And there is a lot to be done. In addition to sheltering and caring for animals and finding them their forever homes—the NHA typically places about 4,000 healthy pets a year with loving families—the organization also helps to control dog and cat populations via spaying and neutering as well as educating the public about this issue. One way NHA does this is through its ROVER program, a traveling veterinary clinic that alters the pets of people who could not otherwise afford the procedure. Another way NHA reaches out to the public is with Teddy’s Wagon, a mobile pet unit staffed by teams of certified pet adoption volunteers. This unit also serves as an animal refuge during emergencies. That’s because NHA has a Disaster Response Team, or DART. For example, during the flood of 2010, NHA’s DART played a significant role in saving the lives of cats and dogs so that they could be reunited with their people. The NHA reaches out to the Davidson County community in other creative ways. For example, NHA staff and volunteers visit assisted-living facilities, bringing the comfort and companionship of animals to seniors without pets of their own. NHA staff also visit schools and civic groups around the county, teaching animal safety, responsible pet ownership  and humane treatment for all living creatures. Even the NHA mascots, Rover and Fluffy, are available for parties and events.   Go see for yourself. The NHA welcomes groups to its clean and modern facility for interactive lessons on pet ownership. Many youth organizations in particular tour the NHA facility to learn about proper care of animals. To adopt an animal, schedule a meet-and-greet through one of NHA’s Pet Service Representatives. Your new best friend might be waiting for you now.

t h e WHAT YOU NEED TO CREATE UNIQUE PLAY AREAS PERFECT FOR YOUR KIDDOS’ UNIQUE INTERESTS ARTICLE NICOLETTE MARTIN

WHAT DO YOU WANT TO BE WHEN YOU GROW UP? It’s a question we were all asked as kids—one that was so innocently answered with whatever our obsession of the week was. Maybe today your child wants to be an astronaut—they love science and math and dream to one day explore among the stars. Maybe they want to be an explorer—they are curious about everything and want to see the world, finding adventure in everything they do. Maybe they want to be a writer—they get lost in a good book and yearn to imagine new stories and characters. Inspire your kids’ imaginations with unique play areas tailored to their wildest dreams. If they can dream it, you can make it with a few simple items.

Please ‘Paws’ For Pets And Their People PETS ARE PEOPLE, TOO. At least they sure seem that way.   Any dog or cat owner worth the fur on the couch pillows will tell you that his or her beloved pet has the cutest quirks ever and likes things done in a certain way. To celebrate this bond, we invited three pet owners to share a few thoughts about the kitty cats and the puppy dogs they love.

Bobbie Noreen, vice president of broker ser-

at Village Real Estate Services

vices/managing broker at Village Real Estate Services Thanks to her kind heart, Bobbie is the leader of an entire pride of kitties: Rocky, Sophie and Sylvester. The story began back in 2003 when Bobbie, a real estate broker, rescued five kittens from the attic of an open house. Less than two weeks old, they could not walk. So Bobbie took them home in a box. The kittens were in such bad shape that even shelters would not take them in, saying the kittens were too far gone to save. Bobbie disagreed. Along with John, her husband, the couple spent the next six weeks feeding them every three hours with a doll’s bottle and goat’s milk. Bobbie and John succeeded, nursing the kittens into healthy cats and finding homes for two. The remaining three, however, were theirs to have and to hold. “We were going through some rough lifetimes when we found them,” Bobbie says, “and, believe it or not, these babies and the process of nurturing them got us through.”   The cats currently reside inside John’s music studio where they enjoy the couple’s daily visits. Bobbie and John also have a dog, Fannie, a 9-yearold rescue chow-shepherd mix with, Bobbie avers, “the sweetest face in the world.” Fannie is devoted to them, especially John. When he leaves the house, he always tells Fannie that he will be back. “He swears that makes her feel better,” Bobbie says, adding that if Fannie could talk, she would say things like, “I am the most important person here, so pay attention to me,” and “I always go through the doorway first, so please step aside.” That feeling of worth and well-being is thanks to Bobbie and John. Both animal lovers, they have always had many with them, even a pet steer. “We believe in rescuing the animals as there are so many out there that need love,” Bobbie says. “Just ask me about my dachshund, Barney, who we lost a few years back. I still cry thinking about him." CONTINUED >

Logan Frye + Zoey Team assistant at Dwell Music City

At home, Logan hangs with Zoey, aka "Zo" or "Zo Bear." Now 11, Zoey has been a family member since puppyhood. That’s plenty of time to learn English, which, according to Logan, Zoey has. Her favorite things to say are “Rub my tummy,” “Scoot over. This is my side of the bed,” and, of course, “Give me what’s on that plate.” Logan does his own share of the talking, asking Zoey such questions as “Who’s a good pupper?” and “Does Zo Bear got some itches?” (Her answer is always "yes.") Zoey’s favorite activities include car rides and going to the dog park. That’s where Logan’s loyal pooch uses even more of her English: “Hey, I’m too old to be running this hard!”

CALL FOR VOLUNTEER PET TEAMS AT MONROE CARELL JR. CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL AT VANDERBILT

You bring joy and comfort to children and their families who are going through a difficult, stressful time. Spending time petting a gentle dog is very soothing. Studies show that children release endorphins when they pet a therapy dog. This reduces the children’s stress and lifts their mood. You receive smiles and gratitude from the hospital staff. The doctors and nurses know how much therapy dogs help and are grateful to have you visit. You meet other pet teams and create friendships. Whether during the certification process or a meeting in the hospital, you four—two people and two dogs— already have a lot in common. You develop an even deeper bond with your pet. Dogs
