COVERING NORTHERN BEAUFORT COUNTY

WWW.YOURISLANDNEWS.COM

MCAS Beaufort gets F-35B squadrons The “Sound of Freedom” echoing across the Lowcountry includes the sound of cheers after the Department of Defense announced that five squadrons of the new F-35B Joint Strike Fighter will be based at Marine Corps Air Station Beaufort. “This is outstanding news. A lot of people worked very hard to make this happen, including the thousands of local residents who shared their comments about the new jets with the Department of Defense. Job well done,” said Garry Parks, a retired Marine Corps lieutenant general and chairman of the Beaufort County Military Enhancement Committee. The Military Enhancement Committee organized a public campaign to support the F-35Bs in Beaufort. The air station alone contributes $615 million annually to the Beaufort County economy, based on a 2009 study. Earning the new Joint Strike Fighter squadrons is expected to solidify the air station’s standing during future debates about base closures, and they’ll also help expand and diversify the local economy. All along, the Navy’s preferred alternative was to base three operational F-35B squadrons at Marine Corps Air Station Beaufort alongside two F-35B training squadrons and simulator centers. Those planes are scheduled to arrive as early as 2014. MCAS continued on page 5

PROFILE

Honoring Harriet

celebrating the life of an inspiring woman and friend By Wendy Pollitzer

H

arriet Herschfeld Keyserling, 88 was a political activist, loving wife and mother, friend of the environment and the arts and an inspiration to all those who met her. Keyserling died Friday of kidney failure after knee replacement surgery. Friends and family gathered on a frigid Monday afternoon at Beth Israel Cemetery on Bladen Street to celebrate the life of a warm and caring woman who championed causes like public education, conservation, the arts, nuclear waste and women’s issues. Keyserling was the first woman elected to Beaufort County Council. A shy Jewish woman from New York City, Keyserling eventually would serve eight terms in the South Carolina House of Representatives. And, after retiring in 1993, she penned the book, “Against the Tide: One Woman’s Political Struggle” about her life, politics and policymaking of her era. HARRIET continued on page 4

News Q & A with FashionGranny

Mini skirts and me Q: Dear FASHION GRANNY, Here is my big quandary lately — hemlines. Is there an age when you should stop wearing minis or short skirts and dresses? Is it about your body or your age? Deanna Answer: Great question. It’s hard to tell what to do anymore with hemlines, since there really are no rules! Minis looked best when we were toddlers: Little ruffled undies, how cute!! That is really when most people had “great legs.” I have a quandary of my own. How much of you do you want to show Joan and John Q. Public and why do you want to? The human skin, the largest organ of the body, can be the most beautiful. Luminescent, hydrated, supple, glowing, even-toned and firm. Or skin can look the opposite — not fit for human consumption. Most of these people know who they are and dress appropriately in public. Not a lot of skin. Thank you, people. Beautiful skin? I say privatize! There‘s your answer. Not body, not age, but private. This need to raise your skirt to the sky is childish anyhow. (I did a lot of it when I was a child so I know!) I grew up in a time where a sweetheart neckline dipped just enough to drive men crazy. A simple seam in the back of

your stocking, well, he was putty in your hands! I still think if you dab perfume at the nape of your neck and the small of your hand only and it is enough to feel womanly and wonderful and all the feelings a well-dressed woman feels! “Well-dressed,” talk about attention getting. It’s easy! Have photos taken with your cell phone by a friend with a good eye. Try on all your skirts and dresses of various lengths. Examine honestly and go with your instinct, no thinking allowed! I guarantee you will know immediately which length suits you best. Still not sure? Here’s a simple rule about skin: unless your knees and thighs are taut, any hemline above them is criminal. Please send your questions to fashiongranny@hotmail.com or theislandnews@gmail.com.

Beaufort Memorial looks to expand cardiology services Cardiologists from the prestigious Duke Heart Network gave affiliate Beaufort Memorial Hospital high marks for its diagnostic catheterization program, paving the way for the future expansion of BMH’s heart services. The evaluation was part of a comprehensive quality oversight assessment conducted last week by seven staff members of the Duke Heart Program, ranked one of the nation’s best heart programs by U.S. News & World Report. “We have a very good sense that the quality of cardiology care provided at Beaufort Memorial Hospital is outstanding,” said Dr. Harry Phillips, chief medical officer of the Duke Heart Network. “They’re doing a great job.” In addition to conducting the peer review, the Duke heart specialists met with BMH staff to discuss what steps the hospital needs to take to request state approval to offer interventional cardiology services, including the placement of coronary stents. Stents are used in a procedure called percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) to open the blocked artery of a patient suffering a STEMI heart attack or ST elevation myocardial infarction. With an 18-20 minute flight time to airlift a STEMI patient from Beaufort Memorial to the hospitals in Charleston or Savannah, BMH sends a majority of its STEMI patients to those hospitals

approved to perform the emergency procedure. (PCI) is the first choice of treatment if it can be performed within a window of 90 minutes. Every minute that passes diminishes the patient’s chance of surviving a STEMI. “Patients will benefit having primary PCI at Beaufort Memorial Hospital,” Phillips said. “Lives will be saved.” The State Health Plan requires that a hospital perform a minimum of 600 non-interventional procedures a year before it can apply to offer interventional procedures. BMH had been averaging 480 procedures each year. But with the addition of three interventional cardiologists to the medical staff this summer, the hospital should reach the required number of procedures within the year. “Our volume has almost doubled since August,” said Daniel Mock, Beaufort Memorial’s senior director of cardiovascular and imaging services. “By this time next year, we should be able to apply for a Certificate of Need to provide emergency interventions for heart attack patients.” Dr. Erasme Coly had been the sole cardiologist at BMH for the better part of 2010. He was joined this summer by Dr. Stuart Smalheiser of Lowcountry Medical Group and Drs. Thomas Schultz and David Harshman, who teamed up to start Beaufort Cardiology.

Harriet

Harriet was a mentor and a friend. Her words and actions have inspired me for a lifetime of “courage, passion to the right thing, charity, justice and quality,” as her son, Billy Keyserling, explained at her service.

continued from page 1 An accomplished and respected politician, Keyserling will also be remembered by many in Beaufort as a compassionate cheerleader to those less fortunate. She was a dear friend to many and all types and consistently argued for an improved welfare to those who were challenged. And for that, she will be memorialized as a hero. Her son, Mayor Billy Keyserling, spoke about his mom at the graveside service. He said, “though we bury the flesh,” his mother and father, the late Dr. Herbert Keyserling, “live on through what we do the rest of our lives and what we pass on to others.” “So what I ask of all of you is to let these little pieces of Harriet and

Herbert affect you in your everyday life,” he said. And that’s what I’m doing. Harriet was a mentor and friend. Her words and actions have inspired me for a lifetime to have “courage, passion to do the right thing, charity, justice and equality,” as her son explained to the hundreds of mourners in his remarks. Dr. Keyserling delivered my exhusband, Richard Pollitzer, almost 37 years ago. He brought the father of my children into this world. One Christmas, Richard gave me Harriet’s book and I gave him Herbert’s book, “Doctor K: A Personal Memoir.” We’re

News MCAS

continued from page 1 The air station at Cherry Point, N.C., is to receive eight operational squadrons, but those planes are expected to arrive later this decade. “This decision, where the Marine Corps Air Station Beaufort receives the nation’s most advanced fighter, will ensure that MCAS Beaufort will be a viable and integral part of the Marine Corps and our national defense as far as the eye can see. Christmas came early this year,” said U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-SC. “This is wonderful news and I could not be more pleased with today’s announcement,” he said. “Beaufort has a long and storied history with the Marine Corps. With the decision today, Beaufort will continue to play an integral role in the future of the Corps.” Bringing five squadrons of F-35B Joint Strike Fighters to Beaufort County will inject more than $400 million in new base construction starting in coming months, said Carlotta Ungaro, president of the Beaufort Regional Chamber of Commerce. Today’s decision also brings the potential for high-paying civilian jobs to help with the training centers, she said. “What an amazing way to celebrate the holidays!” Ungaro said. “A lot of people worked very hard, for a very long time, to make this happen. Our message rang loud and clear to Washington that we love the ‘Sound of Freedom’ and embrace our military.” With the down economy, Friday’s announcement brings new hope for a faster recovery, local leaders said. “I am encouraged by the Department of Defense’s desire to continue to invest in Beaufort County and MCAS Beaufort as outlined by its decision to base three operational and two training F-35B squadrons here,”

Beaufort County Council Chairman Weston Newton said. “We know how critical the base and our regional military presence is not only to our county’s economy but also to our national defense. “The Beaufort County Council will continue to do all that it can to support MCAS Beaufort and our military in its mission to protect our country, and we are proud that the county will be able to call itself home to the most technologically advanced fighter jet in the world.” Kim Statler, executive director for the Lowcountry Economic Network, said the new military aircraft and training centers will boost the Lowcountry’s growing reputation as an East Coast hub for aeronautics and aviation engineering. That reputation is growing, especially with Gulfstream’s recent announcement it was expanding its Savannah operations by 1,000 jobs, many of them in engineering. Boeing is building its Dreamliner plant near Charleston. “The F-35 training centers are a key element for us,” Statler said. “Thanks to MCAS, this region has a highly technical workforce made up of former military personnel.” The arrival of the F-35B will help attract new industry to the region while bolstering existing businesses that focus on technology, aeronautics and defense, she said. The jets are expected to arrive as early as 2014, replacing the F/A- 18 Hornets. Navy and Defense Department officials spent months reviewing public input and their own research from the draft Environmental Impact Statement. The “B” model of the Joint Strike Fighter is capable of short takeoffs and vertical landings. On June 22, an estimated 750 area residents shared their support and their questions about the Joint Strike Fighter at the Beaufort Holiday Inn. It was the largest turnout for any Environmental Impact Statement meeting in the country, defense officials said.

35 YEARS OF QUALITY DENTISTRY Dr. Gene Grace is a graduate of Wofford College and Emory University School of Dentistry. He has provided state of the art dentistry in Beaufort for 38 years. He has also been very active in our community and his church. He and his wife, Beth, a former County Council member, have been married for 39 years and have two daughters, Chilton Simmons and Katherine Hefner.

Both dentists have been using lasers for five years. Dr Grace eliminated silver fillings from the practice 12 years ago. Some of our cases can be viewed on our website, www.genegrace.com.

Dr. Katherine Hefner is a graduate of the University of North Carolina and the Medical University of South Carolina Dental School. She and her husband Ashley, an architect, are also involved in Beaufort. They have two sons, Vann and Ford. Katherine most recently was co-chair of St. Helena's Church Tour of Homes.

We feel it's important to cover after-hour dental emergencies for our patients. Many a weekend, we're at the office with dental emergencies (i.e. athletic injuries to children).

Dr Grace and Dr. Hefner have been here for a long time and will continue to live and serve Beaufort. "It's important in our minds to give back to this wonderful community that has been good to us," says Dr. Grace.

Why choose our practice? We have always been on the cutting edge of dentistry. Drs. Grace and Hefner have been trained at the Las Vegas Institute of Advanced Dental Studies (LVI), the foremost cosmetic post-grad school in the world.

Our staff is the greatest. Terry Johnson, one of our hygienists, has been in the practice for 26 years.

I would like to thank the many friends and neighbors of Royal Pines who contributed to the Gift and Gourmet shop at the 22nd annual Festival of Trees. All proceeds from the Festival benefit the Friends of Caroline Hospice. Our residents volunteered their time working at the festival, sent monetary donations and contributed homemade peanut butter fudge, breads and cakes. For the second year, some Royal Pines residents contributed to the “Adopt a Family” through the Franciscan Center. This project was again spearheaded by Maryanne Bender who, with the help of friends, shopped for a family of seven — buying gifts and providing the funds for the family to purchase their Christmas dinner. Eighteen neighbors and friends: Marisa Sherard, Nancy Steeves, Cathy Wilson, Carol Nocilla, Marianne Hamilton, Carol Clark, Peggy Chandler, Kathy Adams, Sherrie Suback, Marie Colucci, Mary Ann Cieplowski, Maura Baglione, Maritza Schmidt, Amy Stoeffler, Annette Rauenhorst, Carol Wenzel, Pat Davidyock

all gathered at Maryanne’s home to wrap the gifts and to enjoy a wonderful brunch. There are many families who are in the Adopt a Family program and if you would like to help, please contact the Franciscan Center at 838-3924 The Royal Readers enjoyed a great Christmas luncheon at Sweetgrass at Dataw Island Marina. The tables were simply and tastefully decorated and the food was delicious. The group had a long and leisurely lunch while enjoying each others company. The book club selection for January is “The Good Earth” by Pearl S. Buck. The Royal Pines Garden Club met at the home of Pat Lauzon on December 11 for their Christmas luncheon. Pat roasted a turkey

and members contributed their special side dishes which made for a fabulous lunch. Also on December 11, garden club members met at the Beaufort National Cemetery to place wreaths on the headstones of our military and families. A donation is made for each wreath and then placed by their loved ones and other volunteers. Wreathes across America began in Maine when a maker donated many of his Christmas wreath’s to be placed in a national cemetery there, The program has now grown and reaches every National Cemetery across the country.

News Artist brings Glorious Mornings In his studio in Yemassee, James Denmark uses brightly hand colored papers and found materials to create compositions that go beyond the superficial and transitory. He focuses instead on what is eternal and universal. Denmark’s work is consistently and eagerly sought Denmark after by galleries and collectors worldwide: most notably New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art. “Trust and faith creates confidence, which allows me to move forward with my work,” said Denmark. “I leave everything to the spirits. I step back every so often to peek at found collage materials, and to ponder new possibilities. I am a party to improvisation, found materials, and the impact of color.” Born in 1935, Denmark was exposed to color and form at an early age by his artistic family. After attending Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University in Tallahassee, Fla., he moved to Brooklyn, N.Y., and began a career as an art teacher and

earned his Master of Fine Art Degree at the prestigious Pratt Institute of Fine Art. Denmark met and was nurtured by an immensely talented community of artists, including abstract expressionists as Jackson Pollack and William DeKooning. Denmark has developed his own unique and easily identifiable style, which can be enjoyed by the public at ARTworks Tuesday through Fridays, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturday afternoons. For more about the artist, visit www.ArtWorksInBeaufort.org.

IF YOU GO

What: A new exhibit, “Glorious Mornings: James Denmark” will be on display in the gallery ARTworks in Beaufort Town Center. When: Experience the renowned artist and collagist at an opening reception from 6 to 8 p.m., Friday, Jan. 7. The show runs through the closing reception on Friday, Feb. 5.

TAKE A MUSICAL TOUR THROUGH CITY’S HISTORY Internationally known performer Marlena Smalls will lead Beaufort’s Tricentennial Founders’ Night kickoff Friday, Dec. 31 with “a musical tour through the history of Beaufort” in the Henry C. Chambers Waterfront Park. The free event runs from 4:30 to 6 p.m. and culminates with fireworks to set the stage for a yearlong celebration of Beaufort’s 300th birthday. Beaufort was founded in 1711 by the English, although its beginnings date back to 1514. At Founders’ Night, event producer Marlena Smalls will share her inspiring vocals with the help of the Hallelujah Singers. They’ll be joined by musician Charlie Frost, the Carteret Street United Methodist Church choir, Tabernacle Baptist choir, the five-piece band Simply Grand, vocalists and local actors Margaret and Jeff Evans. “We have a wonderful program planned that will include spirituals. We’ll do Old Man River to show off the beauty of the Beaufort River and we’re going to do a piece of the opera Porgy and Bess,” Smalls said. “We are going to cover 300 years of Beaufort history to include the wars, Emancipation, development of the Waterfront Park, all of it.”

What do you want for Christmas? By Katie Kindwall and Madeline Griffith

F

rom the first days of November until December 25, ears are numbed by young children informing Santa Claus and parents of what they want for Christmas. At many local elementary schools, Kindergartners through 6th graders voiced their wishes in hopes of their dreams coming true on Christmas morning. Throughout the years the demands for certain toys, technologies, and clothing change. Unfortunately for parents, this year’s demands seem to be expensive. Some lucky parents will have only to get simple sweaters, while others will try to meet the requests of iPhones, PS3’s and mini laptops. Regardless of the gift, the holidays are bound to bring smiles to many faces when that special present is unwrapped.

School News TCL recognized as one of fastest growing two-year colleges The Technical College of the Lowcountry has been recognized as one of the nation’s fastest growing community colleges. “Community College Week” recently published its annual rankings of the fastest growing public two-year colleges in the country, and TCL was named the 29th fastest growing college among colleges with enrollments of 2,500 to 4,999.

This ranking highlights TCL’s 22 percent growth rate between the fall 2008 and fall 2009 semesters. The study was based on U.S. Department of Education data. In addition, TCL is South Carolina’s fastest growing technical college with a 51.9 percent growth rate from fall 2005 to fall 2009. Fall 2010 enrollment at TCL was also record-breaking, with

an approximate increase of 9 percent compared to the year before. “Our growth is due to a variety factors. The recession has played a role as students seek affordable alternatives. Students are taking advantage of the many financial aid options available,” TCL President Dr. Tom Leitzel said. “Students are looking for quality programs of study that lead to better

jobs. More and more individuals are seeing TCL as the answer to their educational and workforce needs.” TCL offers degree, diploma and certificate programs in industrial technologies, business technologies, arts and sciences and health sciences. TCL is now enrolling for the spring 2011 semester. For more information, call 843.525.8211 or visit www.tcl.edu.

Local teen goes to state pageant Third and fourth grade classes in the courtroom.

BA holds Government Day Beaufort Academy third and fourth graders recently participated in Government Day. The students spent their day at the Beaufort County Courthouse where they toured the family court, learned about the judicial system, held a mock trial and met with many officials including Judge Marvin Dukes, Master In Equity, and Judge Carmen Tevis Mullen, chief administrative judge.

The tour was organized with the help of Beaufort Academy students Lilly Westergaard and Lawton Harper, who are interning at the courthouse. The students held a mock trial in courtroom 3 and assumed all the roles from judge, jury, attorneys, plaintiffs, defendant, court messenger, clerk and court reporter. After the trial, the students visited Beaufort City Hall.

Maria Cooler, freshman at Beaufort High School, was a contestant in the 2011 Miss South Carolina Teen USA Pageant held in North Charleston on Nov. 19-20. Maria was among 36 contestants in the pageant and was the only contestant representing Beaufort County. Maria wore two dresses from Mangos on Fripp Island. Even though she did not make the final cut, Maria still received $1,000 per year academic scholarship to High Point University, High Point, N.C.; several gift bags; and other prizes. Maria would like to thank her best friends Natalie Alvarez and Chloe Brummer for coming to support her along with the Alvarez family. She would also like to thank her Grandma for all her support as well as Susan Cavendish for helping to pick out her evening gown from Frill and Fancies in Statesboro, Ga.

John Wind visits Beaufort Renowned jewelry designer John Wind brought his latest collection to Modern Jewelers (807 Bay St.) this past weekend and greeted many of his fans who snapped up his beautiful vintage inspired pieces. John, who is nearly 6 feet 7 inches tall, joked that he was the tallest jewelry designer in the world. Originally from Philadelphia, John went to London’s famous Slade school of art where he first started selling his designs. After being chosen designer of the month by “The London Times” and featured in “Vogue,” he was picked up by Bloomingdales in America. John was impressed at how friendly and welcoming people are in Beaufort and he will take fond memories of his visit here as he heads off to Paris where he sources many of the items he uses in his designs.

Bill’s Q LI

Well, it looks like Christmas is coming again this year. I sort of knew it was, but it’s really funny every year how many customers try to avoid the fact and, in the last couple of days and even up to closing time on Christmas Eve, try to pretend they just found out it was coming again. I suppose working those last long days makes us extremely aware of which day is Christmas, but to each his own. No matter what any of us do or don’t do, it is coming and we do have to have presents for family and friends. Every year for Christmas I get a present to myself from “my best friend.” For sure, it’s always one of my favorite gifts. Sometimes I get several from this special friend, and, sometimes, I get the same wine several times. This year my list is very varied — mostly reds, but one white and one bubbly (always). For my red from by best friend, my choice is really considerate. It’s a Napa Cabernet, but it is on deal. (Do we have a deal for you!) This cab is from the Stags Leap District of Napa, which is truly prime cab land located on the east side of the Silverado Trail at the southern end of the valley. There are several really well known and expensive cabs that come from this district, although my choice this year is a bit less well known

Every year for Christmas I get a present to myself from my “best friend.” This year, my wish list is very varied and includes two Napa cabernets made by a winery called Regusci and one favorite white.

few retailers to get this wine, Rock and Vine Cabernet, so everyone can have a Regusci cab. The plan works — and so does my shopping list! More wines are on my list, though. (Sometimes I have more friends than I know and sometimes I shop for my own presents. A good practice that I highly recommend!) For my favorite white of the year, I have to go back to the Franciscan Cuvee Sauvage — made with wild yeast spores in separate barrels and then select barrels blended to make the wine. I hate to admit this, but I maybe could drink a glass of that every day. Me, who’s always saying try a new one. Must be really good!!! So, now I have to go and wrap my presents. Even though my best friend gets me what I want, I always have to do the wrapping. What’s that all about? At least that way I know what I’m getting and what I have to go buy for myself. Great plan. Hope your plan and your best friend work as well for you! Enjoy!

Lunch Bunch

Good food and good vibes at The Sandbar The Lunch Bunch

By Pamela Brownstein

reviewing delicious local restaurants

The laid-back atmosphere at the new The Sandbar & Grill is evident in their motto: ‘Cause Life’s a Beach. The friendly staff and surfer décor enhance the relaxed vibe, and the carefully and skillfully prepared dishes will have hungry diners craving more. The extensive menu contains everything from appetizers, salads, soups, sandwiches, burgers, wings and dessert. The Lunch Bunch’s strategy was simple: Order as much as possible and share it. We started with three awesome appetizers — fried green beans; lightly battered country fried dill pickles; and Sonic Boom shrimp that come grilled with special Sonic Boom sauce. It was agreed the shrimp were a must-have. The Southern Slider Sampler came with one hamburger slider, one barbecue and one shrimp burger slider (which April and Elizabeth raved about), as well as a generous helping of sweet potato fries. I inhaled an excellent veggie quesadilla loaded with a blend of cheeses, sautéed onions and peppers, mushrooms and fire-roasted tomatoes. We all enjoyed the Chinese Chicken Salad — crispy rice noodles topped with

shredded lettuce, grilled chicken, snow peas, green onions, slivered almonds and a tangy teriyaki dressing — and Kim declared it a must-try surprise. Barry, the ad director, tackled the enormous Lockness Monster: A burger in the middle with two grilled cheese sandwiches as the bun. He did his best to conquer it, but even Barry — who never needs a to-go box — could only finish half. Co-owner Patty Hilton makes the sourdough bread for the Lockness Monster, and said it’s a fun sandwich to create because it’s so massive. Hilton is a Beaufort native whose family owned the Old Village Inn, which was beloved by many locals. Some popular items from that establishment have been revived on the new menu.

Hilton has owned several eateries with her husband in other parts of South Carolina, and she said she decided to open the Sandbar with friend Lynn Patterson because “I just wanted to come back to Beaufort.” Well, the Lunch Bunch welcomes the Sandbar with open arms, especially their amazing dessert recipes! The peanut butter pie was very good, but the Strawberry Banana Pudding left us all wanting more. The homemade pudding was light and scrumptious over cubes of shortcake and fresh strawberries and

whip cream. Barry said it best: “Tastes like my grandma’s nanner pudding.” Be sure to try this great new restaurant at 41-B Robert Smalls Parkway, next to the movie theater in Beaufort Plaza. The prices are beyond reasonable, and takeout is available. They are open seven days a week from 11 a.m. - 11 p.m. This Saturday, Dec. 18, bring the children for a special Breakfast with Santa, which includes pancakes, eggs, bacon, toast and coffee for only $5. With deals like that, life in the Lowcountry certainly is a beach.

Pets

Why do you want a dog? The decision to get a dog is not something to be taken lightly. While the sweet face of a puppy can tug our heartstrings into an impulse buy, we need to know, up front, the significant investment of time and money that little charmer will require. Socializing and training a new puppy is time consuming and, occasionally, frustrating. Working to provide all that is necessary to successfully integrate a dog into a family environment can increase the amount of stress on the family and the dog, This is especially true if the primary caregiver(s) are working outside the home and/ or have young children, an elderly parent, or other persons and pets to care for. This does not mean that it cannot be done. But, prospective dog owners often underestimate the investment of time, energy and money, required. Making this decision impulsively can lead to frustration, disappointment, and possibly result in the surrender of the dog to a shelter or rescue. The first question you should ask yourself honestly is: Why do I (we) want a dog? Is your answer: For my children: Trust me, this will be your dog. After the honeymoon period the kids may play with the dog, occasionally. Guaranteed, they will whine about dog-related responsibilities, doing them grudgingly, only after significant prodding from you. As children’s interests and activities change over the years, their level of involvement with the dog will most likely be inconsistent, at best. Additionally, your children, especially, young children, will need to be trained

FACTS, OBSERVATIONS AND MUSINGS ABOUT OUR BEST FRIENDS

BowWOW! Is a production of Tracie Korol and wholeDog. Tracie is a holistic behavior coach, a canine massage therapist (CCMT), herbalist, and canine homeopath. Want more information? Have a question? Send a note to Tracie at letstalk@wholedog.biz or visit www.wholedog.biz.

in how to behave with the dog and will need to be supervised when with the dog. For protection: The only time is it a good idea to get a dog for the purpose of protection is in professional or agricultural situations and only when the owner is humane and knowledgeable of dog behavior and dominant dog handling. In all other situations an alarm system or security fence are much more appropriate and effective. To breed puppies: The breeding of dogs is a responsibility not to be taken lightly. If it is not your intention to remain responsible for all of your puppies for their entire lives, including being willing to take back and care for those that may find themselves homeless, do not enter into this endeavor. If you are planning on breeding for profit, understand that there are much easier, more profitable and more ethical ways to make a buck. Dogs are living beings and dog breeding requires a significant investment of time, money, labor, knowledge, both academic and practical, patience, and emotional fortitude, to be done responsibly and humanely. Visit the county shelter and witness the problem yourself. Look at the faces of the homeless dogs and talk to the volunteers and staff who, all too often, must take that final

walk with them. Because BreedX is cool, was in a movie, is unique and exotic, is free or cheap: One of the worst reasons to get a dog is because of their physical appearance or popularity due to a movie or TV show. Often, these venues feature exotic, rare or unique breeds that are, in the overwhelming majority of pet situations, unsuitable as companions. This visibility may also draw out those “breeders” whose primary motivation is profit versus health, temperament, structural soundness and the welfare of their dogs. Also, remember to incorporate the same thoughtful consideration on whether or not to get a dog, and which breed or mix, when your friend, coworker or relative offers you one of Fluffy’s puppies. Dogs are never really free and, in reality, require significant financial, physical, time, and environmental resources. None of these are sound selection factors for getting a dog and selecting a particular breed or mix. If it is difficult for you to find information on a particular breed, or a breeder of the breed, it follows that you will most likely also have difficulty finding local support services that are familiar with the training, health care, and maintenance needs of that breed.
