dOmINIk kuREk dkurek@insidetoronto.com Theodora Pistiolis just wants to give at-risk and homeless youths a bit of a confidence boost, and she's doing it the best way she knows how. The Muay Thai instructor and professional fighter each week hosts a group of young people at her Hook Up Muay Thai gym in North York, where she gets the youths to get their blood rate up, throw a few punches and kicks, and learn some moves to defend themselves. The hardest part of her job is to get the youths, many of whom are dealing with a number of issues, to stay engaged for a full 60 minutes. But when they do, her work is most rewarding. "I don't worry about how they're doing it, or how much their doing, I just want them to finish it. I don't want them to quit," Pistiolis said. "When they don't quit, they ● See KEEPING, page 13

Celebrating the holidays in a ‘uniquely Canadian way’

In Toronto, people make room for their neighbour’s cultural celebrations

DaviD Nickle dnickle@insidetoronto.com There’s something different about the window display at the Hudson’s Bay Company flagship store at Yonge and Queen Streets this holiday season. Gone are the animated Christmas carollers, the elves and the reindeer trappings of Christmas. In their place? The Aurora Borealis; owls and geese and squirrels and bears, animal denizens of a wintery “enchanted forest” that speaks more to the Canadian winter than the Christian holiday that’s among those celebrated in December. A year ago and a border south of the Bay, a decision to step back from Christmas in favour of wintery magic might have gotten a lot of flak from Christians and other traditionalists who see a war against the holiday in the colour of Starbucks coffee cups and the use of the greeting “happy holidays”

rather than Merry Christmas. This year? With Stephen Bannon, the head of the right-wing, hate-spinning website Breitbart. com at the right hand of president-elect Donald Trump, whatever bloom there was on the rose of Christian-centric, exclusive celebration this season has surely faded. That goes doubly so in Toronto - one of the most multicultural and multi-religious cities in the world - where the deChristmasing of the Bay raised barely an eyebrow. “This isn’t a bad year for us to be talking about the uniquely Canadian way of celebrating Christmas,” says Toronto city councillor Joe Mihevc, who came to politics by way of divinity studies. Mihevc represents a typically diverse ward (Ward 21 - St. Paul’s) in a diverse city, and he holds his communities up as a model of accommodation. While the law of the land turns Christmas - that being the explicit celebration of the birth of Christ - into a paid, nearly universal holiday, Mihevc says that the many faiths practiced in the communities he represents find ways to celebrate. “At the Wychwood Barns, there’s a Christmas thing, a Hanukkah thing, a Kwanzaa thing,” he says.

David Nickle/Metroland

The Hudson’s Bay Company’s window displays at Yonge and Queen streets are featuring a winter theme this year – a break in tradition from their usual Christmas theme. “It’s let’s celebrate and have fun with it. It’s not a way of defining your religious team as differentiated from other religious teams.” In Scarborough, United Church Minister Gretta Vosper takes that ethos a step further. Vosper, an avowed atheist, is battling a move by the church to defrock her for her religious views. The matter is currently decided against her, subject to an appeal. The West Hill United Church where she officiates until that is heard offers a “longest night” service that coincides with the equinox - the shortest day of the year, Dec. 21. The congregation there focuses on the communal elements of the season -

extinguishing candles to represent regrets, and lighting candles to illuminate hope. “It’s a service that doesn’t use scriptural text, but touches the primal elements of all traditions,” she says. “What we do is, the lowest common denominator of what people of good will can agree on. That’s what we build on.” Vosper’s God-absent view may be an outlier in a season that gathers many around spiritual symbols, but even the devout can see the value in inclusivity. Rev. Rachel Kessler left her parish in midtown Toronto last year to become chaplain at Kenyon College in Ohio. The Episcopal college’s stu-

dent body is diverse, with students practicing Judaism, Islam, Hinduism and pagan religions, as well as many who don’t worship at all. “The way we have been striving to approach spiritual life here is, how do we affirm the religious identity of the people in our community and support them fully, in our own identity and making space for one another’s identity?” she asks. Making that space, Kessler acknowledges, is work. “Forming a true interfaith relationship should cost me something,” she says. “If that cost is I say ‘happy holidays’ to Muslim or Jewish students,

or a pagan student who doesn’t want to celebrate Christmas - well, that’s a pretty low cost for me.” Kessler would, in fact, be willing to pay more. “I want to scrap Christmas as a paid holiday entirely,” she said. “I think we should all celebrate as a secular society as a winter holiday. But in my religious community, I would like to celebrate my festival. The whole festival of the light of God, coming into the world.” As for the Bay? When asked for comment on the new wintry display, Bay spokesperson Michelle Veilleux was unable to find anyone to comment. Here in Toronto, the display speaks for itself.

S

o much has been debated about how we wish someone well during the holiday season. ‘Put Christ back in Christmas!’ are common cries from those who celebrate. Indeed, they should put Christ back in Christmas. That’s the reason of the season for them. For those who believe, Christ was born in a manager with livestock all around him. He had no clothes. He came from no wealth. But he led his life with love at the core. Torontonians must recognize (and most probably do) that there is room for everyone to celebrate in the way they choose, this month and throughout the year. Be it Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Ramadan, Diwali and other faith-based celebrations, the common thread is love and hope. Honouring what’s come before, and making a conscious effort to do better moving forward. It’s about people. It’s about kindness. It’s about generosity. It’s about acceptance. It’s about loving your neighbour. It’s about spending time with people who matter to you. It’s about giving to a stranger with no expectation of anything in return. Sharing a smile and wishing someone ‘Happy Holidays’ doesn’t detract from what the season of giving is all about. If anything, we as a people should be offended with the commercialism and high-cost of celebrating at this time of year. Buying the best of the best in gifts, but not giving the best of the best of ourselves, is the greater sacrifice to humanity. What matters is how you treat people, not the price tag attached to the shiny new present. It’s irrelevant in the long run. It’s a general understanding people remember how you made them feel, not what you did or bought for them. It’s unlikely if Jesus Christ walked this earth today he would take exception to wishing someone ‘Season’s Greetings’ or “Happy Holiday’s or a simple ‘the very best to you’. Love was Christ’s ministry and we as people of all faiths, cultures and creeds should endeavor to live our lives with love and give of ourselves to make this world we live in a better place.

Toronto public housing tenants still waiting to be safe Pelham Park Gardens isn’t alone in its problems. But if its tenants feel alone, especially at night, who could blame them? Bad people come to the building at night, and no one is there to stop it. The west-end Toronto Community Housing Corporation complex was built for seniors, and once had nurses on staff. Now a lot of tenants are people with disabilities or mental illnesses. “Drug dealers, prostitutes, they prey on them,” says Cesar Palacio, the local councillor. “That enrages me.” Mayor John Tory set up a task force to “transform” the city housing authority. Many of its 2,200 buildings are crumbling, and the city falls farther behind on

MIkE ADLER Edges of Toronto repairs. The final task force report in January called for more services to protect vulnerable tenants, supplied perhaps by outside agencies, and for “quick and consistent procedures to deal with illegal and antisocial activity.” But all tenants seem to be getting are better security cameras because, as TCHC CEO Greg Spearn explained in Pelham Park last week, he never has

more than 16 to 18 security officers to respond to buildings across Toronto. Need overnight security? We can’t afford it, and furthermore Spearn says the authority doesn’t have legal means to “screen out the bad guys” on TCHC’s waiting list, though he’d love to. “I agree with the task force but without resources I can’t do anything about it,” he says, “and we’ve been asked to cut 2.6 per cent.” In April 2015, tenants at Scarborough Civic Centre told the task force how they needed TCHC to change. Several said security was their number one issue. They wanted overnight guards, not just cameras. “Drug dealers, prostitutes, people living there illegally. These people

should be out, because we have decent people waiting to take your spot,” said a woman from Gordonridge Place, Rita Nicolson. The nightly sense of lawlessness at Gordonridge and Pelham Park needs to end. People in each TCHC building want to help, but don’t want to risk their lives confronting trespassers and dangerous tenants when staff aren’t there. The mayor must remember that he promised to listen, he promised to help. Edges of Toronto is a column about how people see life in Toronto differently, depending on where they live.

MEC opens new store at North York Outdoor enthusiasts in the suburbs won't have to travel to the downtown core to shop at MEC anymore, as the city's second location opened in North York Saturday, Nov. 26. The 34,000 square foot, twostorey Mountain Equipment Co-op store with a sawtooth roof, wood-infused interior, and underground parking opened at 784 Sheppard Ave. East, west of Leslie Street and metres away from Bessarion subway station. The store, aimed at customers throughout the Greater Toronto Area, specifically north of Eglinton Avenue and east to Oshawa, will offer a full service bike repair shop and ski-tech shop, a bike fitting station, and a rental

Free admission for Syrian refugees to Aga Khan museum

insidetoronto.com

Aga Khan Museum is offering free admission to newly-arrived Syrians and their host families to take in the exhibit Syria: A Living History. The exhibit is on until Feb. 26, 2017 at 77 Wynford Dr. "We want to welcome all Syrian newcomers to this country, and to ensure that they and their host families have the opportunity to join in our celebration of the diversity and history of Syria," Henry Kim, director and CEO of the Aga Khan Museum, said in a release. "Making art accessible to all has always been a key part of our mandate and this outreach program is no exception. We want Syrians to realize the value we place in their arrival in this country, and to understand that they are a vital part of the cultural mosaic of Canada." The exhibit showcases artifacts and artworks that tell a different story of Syria - one of cultural diversity, historical continuity, resourcefulness and resilience. Through a partnership with seven museums and private collections, the exhibition highlights the contributions the cultures within Syria - Hittite, Sumerian, Greek, Roman, Byzantine, Persian, Ottoman and Arab - have made to world heritage.

Programming will include weekly running and riding meetups, along with 'how to' sessions to help members take up new activities like backpacking, cycling, and snow sports.

"MEC is a hub," said spokesperson Andrew Sutherland during the store's media preview Thursday, Nov. 24. "It's not just a store, it's a community meeting place." Planning is underway to relocate MEC's downtown Toronto flagship in 2018 from 400 King St. West to about 500 metres north to Queen and Peter streets.

Maestro tells kids to stick to their vision Fannie SunShine fsunshine@insidetoronto.com Wes Williams leans back in his chair, eyes focused on the ceiling, and lets out a heavy sigh. Sitting in the office of St. Frances School last Wednesday, moments before he was to address parents and students with a motivational talk, Williams, a.k.a. Maestro Fresh-Wes, told a reporter how he thought he lost everything stored on his phone earlier that day. After two stressed-filled hours, an Apple store employee put his fears to rest. "It shows how dependent we are on technology," he said. It sounded iconic considering Williams, one of Canada's most successful and influential hip-hop artists, broke into the scene at a time when technological dependence and the constant need to be plugged in had yet to break ground. Williams was at the Jane Street and Sheppard Avenue school to share his story of how he came up in the music business, and to help inspire youngsters and parents to stay motivated and not be deterred from their chosen paths. He has spent the last few years giving motivational talks to students and companies based on his 2010 book, Stick to Your Vision: How to Get Past the Hurdles and Haters to Get Where You Want to Be. "People told me for years I inspired them through my music," he said of why he wrote the book. Joe Fiorante, a parent representative with the Catholic Parent Involvement Committee, said he was looking for someone who could motivate both students and parents when Williams' name was mentioned. "Parents need encouragement to encourage their kids," he said.

Revenue tools just the first step to responsible governance DaviD Nickle dnickle@insidetoronto.com

Toronto Council will be asked to take a pretty bold step this month as it considers whether to follow Mayor John Tory’s lead and impose road tolls, a hotel tax and full-fare property tax on vacant commercial and industrial buildings. Council hasn’t been good at imposing these things in the past, but with Tory and his staff pushing stragglers into line, it’s likely that council will avoid a repeat of 2013, when they voted to consider exactly no new revenue tools to pay for the city’s infrastructure deficit. It’s a shame the mayor won’t be pushing as hard, or even at all, in the other direction: specifically, making sure that the $33 billion estimated unfunded infrastructure commitment isn’t filled with frivolous work. At the same time as he’s

DaviD Nickle The City arguing persuasively in favour of drawing in hundreds of millions of dollars a year in revenue from people driving on the Don Valley Parkway and the Gardiner Expressway, Tory might consider rethinking plans to rebuild a part of the expressway as an elevated highway that is starting to look like a white elephant. On the same Dec. 1 executive committee meeting as the revenue tools appear, a report from city staff notes that the plan to rebuild the eastern portion of the highway and rehabilitate the

rest, approved in 2015 by council, is going to cost a lot more than anticipated. According to the staff report, the original $2.6-billion project is now $3.623-billion. Council should look at the eastern portion that’s being rebuilt – which costs $1.4 billion, $468 million more than council approved in 2015, compared to a much less costly plan to remove that portion of the Gardiner and replace it with an atgrade boulevard. As matters stand, the Gardiner reconstruction sits with the Scarborough subway and the diminished SmartTrack plan, as another example of profligacy – and a barrier to the goal of fiscal balance that those tolls only approach.

Holiday speCial

Kids take the season’s hottest toys for a test drive Mary.

doMiniK KuReK dkurek@insidetoronto.com Toys have become a lot more technical and sophisticated over the years, no question. Yet, many of the things that kids play with haven’t changed that much in decades. “I’ve been in the business for 42 years and it’s amazing how much has changed and how much is the same,” said Steve Morris, chair of the board for the Canadian Toy Association (CTA). The association held a Hot Toys for Holidays event at Toronto’s Ontario Science Centre recently where more than a dozen children got to test them out. Eight-year-old Jordyn glued herself to the new Barbie Hello Dream House. While she has a dollhouse at home, this one is outfitted with a mechanical elevator, lights, sounds and more. It retails for $499.99. Margot Somerville, chair of marketing for the CTA, said digital technology is appearing in more and more traditional-style toys.

“We’re now into a totally teched-out house,” she said of the new Barbie toy. “Even your traditional play-kitchen, you bring your tablet in and all of a sudden you have this interaction between cooking and washing and cleaning.” While the organization brought about 80 toys for the kids to play with, some got much more attention: Remote controlled toys ● Force Band Battle-Worn BB-8 Bundle ($249.99) - This smartphone-controlled toy lets users control the “Star Wars” character with hand motions. “One of my favourites is BB-8,” said 10-year-old Jake. “I like how

This remote-controlled toy is easy enough to control that it’s suit-

able for ages three and up. Create and make ● Gemmies ($34.99) - This toy allows children to create using crystals and elastic rings. “It’s a cool idea that you could make something out of elastics and beads and turn it into something like an animal,” said 12-year-old

● Crayola Creations Jewel Maker ($27.99) - Kids create their own jewelry. ● Lego - The brick building toy company makes toys for nearly every age group and price range. Traditional play ● Go! Go! Smart Friends The Enchanted Princess Palace ($69.99) features a palace that expands to four feet wide, and Treasure Mountain Train Adventure ($69.99) features a mechanical train. ● Little Tikes - Cook ‘n Learn Smart Kitchen ($199.99) - This toy takes the traditional kitchen and pairs it with a tablet for more interaction. ● Hot Wheels Criss Cross Crash ($54.99) - a mechanized crash track from the maker of the popular dinky cars. ● Paw Patrol, Zoomer Marshall, Interactive Pup ($99.99) - While there are many “Paw Patrol” toys out there, this one feature more than 150 sounds, does the “Pup Pup Boogie” (dances) and more.

TV or not TV, that is the question Lately I've gotten quite a few emails about smart TVs. These ones caught my eye. Q. I was sifting through holiday ads when my smartphone had a conniption after hearing me say I was considering getting a smart TV. It was so upset it jumped out of my hand and made a beeline to go brood in the corner. What was that about? A. I wouldn't lose any sleep over it. Smartphones have a reputation for being high maintenance. It was feeling unloved. A hug will help. Q. My smartwatch completely lost it upon hearing the same news. It shrieked, "What am I chopped liver?" Then unrolled off my wrist and zipped across to the opposite corner. Any advice? A. Give it a hug, too. Then have them hug each other and assure them that not only are they not forgotten, that

How does one get their smartphone to turn on a smart TV anyway? A. By asking it very

sweetly. Especially if it's a new smart TV. Q. I bought a smart TV, Black Friday. Ever since my smartwatch and smartphone want to know why their names are one measly word and smart TV, is a whopping two? What should I tell them? A. To be happy "smart" is still part of their handles after such a query. Smart TV is not two words. It is, in fact, one word and an initialism. They of all devices should know that. Q. With Smart TVs all the rage, I thought I'd surprise my smartphone and smartwatch with one on Christmas. What do you think? A. Sounds good. As long as you remember to give them both a hug first. And perhaps some eggnog, too, while you're at it. Jamie Wayne is a lifelong columnist, who takes writing very seriously. The topics? Not so much. His column appears every Thursday.

Each week's class sees as many as 10 students who come from the Horizons for Youth homeless shelter, just a 10 minute drive away in Toronto's York community. The shelter serves males and females between the ages of 16 and 24. Pistiolis has been doing this for close to four years. The shelter receives donations to offset the cost of the program and the rest is donated by Pistiolis. Horizons for Youth program co-ordinator Jonathan John said this and the shelter's yoga programs are its most popular. "We offer nothing else like this," John said. "We do have a small gym at the shelter, but it's not to the level of this. And the kids are having something that's very structured from a professional." The shelter serves up to 45 people and is at 100 per cent capacity much of the time. It offers much more than just a bed and meal.

It provides youths with things like job development support, and personal and housing support once they leave. Its programs also focus on rehabilitative skills, which the Muay Thai plays a key part in. "This isn't just healthy living. When they come back from the program after we've done a workout, they're bonding together, they are developing social skills and determination," John said. For 23-year-old Fatimah Mookshh, who has been staying at the shelter for the past three months, a recent outing to Hook Up Muay Thai was also her first, which she was excited to take part in. "I think keeping a healthy lifestyle is important," she said of her decision to try it. "I plan to come back. I'm excited to join this class." John said the program is currently on a come-and-go basis, but the shelter hopes to get more funding so that it could become a more structured and regular part of Horizons for Youth's programming, which would enable it to serve more young people.

Torontonians generous with giving over holiday season

Loyal donors help keep not-for-profits in the green

Giving back during the holiday season doesn’t have to involve opening your wallet.

FanniE SunSHinE fsunshine@insidetoronto.com

With the holidays fast approaching, malls are becoming more crowded, store front windows are decorated with Christmas trees and all the trimmings, and charities have filled mailboxes and airwaves with calls for donations. And with a plethora of charities and not-for-profits vying for money from generous donors, some have had to change their approach and get more Internet savvy in hopes of collecting coin. When it’s time for North York Seniors Centre (NYSC) to target donors for its fundraisers, Jasmine Colibaba knows exactly where to find them - online. “We are focusing on the millennials,” said the centre’s development coordinator. “As a millennial myself, it’s so much easier to just give online. It’s the way the future is going. It’s the new focus. We have to think about how we can appeal to a larger audience. Twitter, LinkedIn, it’s all very important in getting our message out to a broader audience.” And luckily for NYSC, a not-for-profit organization providing programs and services for adults aged 55 and older, they don’t have to tug too hard on heart strings to get people to dig into their pockets. “Everyone has a grandma, grandpa,” Colibaba said. “They are vibrant, living in the community. But they are going to need help.” She noted one third of all annual donations to NYSC are collected in December, adding the organization has a loyal donor

So if you donate to a kettle at Yonge and Eglinton, the money stays in that community.” Burditt is aware not everyone can give cash donations, so he suggests donating time - like manning a kettle. “We find people do give with an open heart.”

Holiday SPECial

Trimming Toronto’s holiday tree is an epic undertaking Massive tree from Bancroft now decked out in lights david NiCklE dnickle@insidetoronto.com One of the most special traditions of the holiday season for many is to go find a tree, haul it home and decorate it with lights, tinsel and baubles in a place of honour by the hearth. For 50 years, the tree-trimming has also been a tradition with the City of Toronto. Beginning in 1967 as a way to showcase the then-new Toronto City Hall, Toronto workers have set aside weeks in November to erect a very special tree in Nathan Phillips Square. That is special, as in huge. According to Kristine Germann of Toronto’s Economic Development Department, the tree has always between 60 and 65 feet tall, brought down from Bancroft, north of Peterborough, by the Weller Tree Service, which has been providing the service since the beginning. “They always pick a tree that’s at the end of its life cycle,” said Germann. “This year the tree is approximately 60 feet. And yes, it’s pretty epic-it comes down in a big truck.” It takes a crew of eight city workers to put the tree in place, secured with guy wires and fenced off. “Once the tree’s in place, we let it settle,” said Germann. “When we get a tree at our own house, they always advise to let it settle for a couple of days, and with a bigger tree it’s a larger consideration. We need it to look good for really a month. And then it requires a cherry picker and three pieces of large machinery to decorate the tree.” The tree-trimming takes between one and two weeks, which might seem leisurely. A 60 foot white spruce tree, however, takes a lot of decorations. There are 700 ornaments in total, and 12,500 feet of lights, which for several years now have been brighter, energy-efficient LEDs. “My favourite decoration is the beautiful star that goes on top of the tree,” says Germann. “It’s made of metal. I always like to see that. I guess I know when it goes up, our job is done.” Well, not entirely done. The tree must eventually come down: two weeks after New Year’s Day, at which point, the tree is mulched “and returned to the land.”

(Top, clockwise) After the fireworks display on Saturday, crowds gather to take photos with the city’s holiday tree at Nathan Phillips Square. The celebration included live entertainment and Mayor John Tory flipping the switch on lighting the tree. Getting the 60-foot tree ready involved bringing it in from Bancroft, lifting and securing it in place, as well as pruning and decorating.

What a difference a week makes on the Toronto transportation beat. Last Monday, Nov. 21 all attention was shined squarely on the impending fare hike for TTC riders. By the following Friday, the spotlight turned sharply to Mayor John Tory's championing of tolls on the Gardiner Expressway and the Don Valley Parkway to help pay for transit. Getting far less ink was the admission by city staff a plan to rebuild the eastern, elevated section of the Gardiner- approved by the narrowest margins by Toronto Council last year- is going to cost much, much more than expected. It was always going to be cheaper to tear down the crumbling eastern section between Jarvis Street to approximately Logan Avenue, in favour of expanding and modifying Lake Shore Boulevard. Now it's estimated re-building the expressway will cost one billion dollars more than projected, to $2.6 billion.

rahul GupTa TO in Transit That $2.6 billion to provide a negligible travel benefit for the ever-declining number of drivers using the expressway to get downtown flies in the face of world trends. Cities like New York and Montreal have either opted to or already torn down their own expensive expressways in favour of boulevards, to the benefit of local communities. Tearing down the Gardiner was something the former city manager strongly recommended, before it was flatly rejected by his elected official overseers. Tory, albeit reluctantly, came around to the idea of road tolls after years spent

opposed. The man who once ran for office opposed to the measure has now become the city's greatest champion. Perhaps he can do the same in the case of the Gardiner. At this point, it seems highly unlikely that will happen. At a press conference this week Tory doubled down. saying it's good to know now, years before construction of the Gardiner"hybrid" is set to begin, the price has jumped. He also held out hope the federal government will eventually contribute money to the project, which seems like a pipe dream at this point. That's too bad, because by all objective measures, preserving the Gardiner for billions of dollars makes increasingly less sense given what the city is gaining in return. It's time for a re-think.

Art Starts hosts exhibit at Toronto Centre for the Arts

Art Starts will celebrate its 2016 season with an art exhibit and performance showcase Wednesday, Dec. 7 at Toronto Centre for the Arts, 5040 Yonge St. The free event will feature an open house, visual art, music, and dance performances from 6 to 8 p.m. It will celebrate city-wide collaborations between artists and community members working in a variety of artistic disciplines, bringing together people of all ages who have participated in Art Starts programs in the Eglinton-Oakwood, Villaways, Lawrence Heights, and Glendower neighbourhoods. The evening will feature original music performances and testimonials by youth from the Next Up music program; spoken word statements relating to themes of displacement, revitalization and gentrification from Lawrence Heights youth; three skits and an original song from After School Arts Program (ASAP) artists; a bass rendition of a surprise song by chil-

dren and youth from the Learn the Basics program; a flamenco-belly dance fusion performance; photography by True Heart youth; a dance piece by Villaways residents; and displays by youth from Kut x Sew fashion program.

Older pets seeking a permanent home for the holidays

Let’s ring in the holiday season by finding loving new homes for two senior pets - Shyla, a road-trip loving coonhound and Daenerys, a fun and feisty feline. SHYLA Shyla is an approximately nine-year-old coonhound who weighs 60 pounds. The perfect day for Shyla would include a trip to the dog park to visit her canine friends and to make new ones followed by snuggles on the couch. When Shyla first arrived at Gentle Jake’s Coonhound Rescue she was timid and shy (hence the name) but has since become one happy hound. She is house-trained and crate-trained but can be left uncrated at home

She is spayed and up-to-date on vaccines. See Shyla on the web at www.coonhoundrescue. ca or for more information contact houndrescue@ yahoo.ca
