Remembering ... Ann Graham By Bill Dougherty

It’s hard to imagine the social scene without Ann Graham. The 1991 Trendsetter and socialite extraordinaire passed away late last spring after nine decades of one the most extraordinary lives imaginable. On a cold winter’s evening in 1992 I was introduced to the legendary lady. It was after a quick cup of coffee with then-publisher and founder of Trends, Danny Medina. She quickly grabbed my arm and smiled. “My God, honey, Danny told me all about you. I’ve been dying to meet you!” Well into her late 70s, she was dressed in a scarlet red mini-suit and very high matching pumps! We became close friends for the rest of her life. You knew where you stood the second you met Ann Graham. But then again, there were few if any who had her high-society tenure. She arrived in Phoenix from San Francisco in 1963 when the city was still smaller than Albuquerque! She knew everyone’s deep, dark secrets. And she had a list of friends a mile long. To list Ann’s accomplishments in the social world would take more ink than we could imagine. Ann was a scratch golfer and spent a great deal of time playing her beloved sport. A few of her favorite things were the Phoenix Heart Ball, the Arizona Opera League, the Phoenix Symphony and the Phoenix Art Museum. When I arrived at Trends in 1994, she could often be found talking on a head set, filling tables for the newly forged Trends Charitable Fund. Her willingness to help out was simply amazing! As the years passed Ann’s velocity slowed. Yet she still managed to point her Cadillac in the direction of the Ritz-Carlton. “Honey, this is the best place in Phoenix to be seen!” She would make a grand entrance and captivate the entire room. Ann loved to tell stories of a much smaller Valley, a place where people came together to help one another and not for the recognition she believed had overtaken the social scene. In the last years of Ann’s brilliant life she received simply amazing care from Leslie Rich, Jordan Rose and Katherine Woods. They all made sure she was comfortable and treated like a queen. We all still lunched but the venue had moved to Randy’s in Scottsdale. There again she made her grand entrances, pushing her walker into someone else’s hands. Anne belonged to an era of cocktail parties, private back-tie dinners and thank-you notes, an era swept away into cyberspace. She will be missed and never forgotten.

Your Stomach Has Never Felt So Home.

“I don’t think about art when I’m working. I try to think about life.” – Jean-Michel Basquiat


Matthew Boland

very adventure begins with preparation, execution and passion. “I always say to potential clients at our first meeting that if each member of the design team does not learn something through the process, whether they be the client, the architect, the builder or the interior designer, then it was not a successful project.” Designing and building a home is truly a journey and you should always travel with people that you know will watch out for you and protect you on your journey. I am very proud to work with so many talented architects, builders and landscape designers; each one brings their own expertise and passion to each project. Interiors are such a personal and intimate facet of a home, they reflect to others how you would like to be viewed, what your interests are and how you live your life. A successful interior is like a successful outfit that makes you feel amazing but an interior allows you to live your life wrapped in that atmosphere. Exposure is such an extremely important part of design; it allows you to consider all options with an educated eye and a thoughtful mind. When a client is passionately engaged in the process, their fire is my fire and I love to experience all of their ideas. Every idea leads to another.

I am very proud to have an amazing staff, “my team”. We work very hard to bring the best level of service to every step of the process and to deliver a timely result to any request. Thank you Andrea and Jennifer for your endless and much appreciated efforts, you are my esteemed colleagues, thank you for your professionalism and dedication to making dreams come true. I believe wholeheartedly in a collaborative creative process and I am so proud to be currently working alongside such amazing local talents as DeBartolo Architects, Candelaria Design, Tennen Studio, Stoffel Design, Truform and Douglas Architects. We also have the honor of having Desert Star Construction, Tennen Construction, Construction Zone, Kitchell Custom Homes, GM Hunt Builders and Benhart Landscaping executing our designs with precision and with the upmost professional expertise. We are currently working on projects in Arizona as well as many out of state projects including Toronto, Canada; Beverly Hills, California; Aspen, Colorado; St. Louis, Missouri; Palm Beach, Florida and Manhattan, New York. Our clients take us all around the world.

La Dolce Vita This is how it all started! Missy and Lyle Anderson threw open the doors of their posh Paradise Valley estate for the chic VIP party the night before the Trends/Trends Charitable Fund luncheon. Everyone you know and adore made the scene. Robert’s Catering (a household name for decades in the world of fine catering) did an outstanding job making sure merrymakers sampled some of the best foods available. The White House Design Studio, who would play a huge part in the décor of the next day at the luncheon, also dropped in to lend their respective talents to the bash. You should have been there! Early the next morning Missy would join her equally beautiful and accomplished sister, Jinger Richardson, along with TCF board members to create a stunning venue at Montelucia for the day’s festivities. Traci Mead, the lovely director of catering, together with famed chef Michael Cairns, did an exquisite job making sure our guests were treated to an amazing number of culinary delights as well as flowing champagne throughout the afternoon. First we presented our 10 new Trendsetters for 2014. They included: Kimberly Afkhami, Carol Clemmensen, Chrissy Donnelly, Natalie Gaylord, Lisa Handley, Linda Herold, Suzie Muzzy, Renee Parsons, Lauri Termansen and Pam Ward. Bethenny Frankel of reality television fame and all things skinny liquor addressed the sold-out crowd with humor and wit. She is no doubt one shrewd businesswoman. The afternoon was a tremendous success. If you could bottle the entire TCF board and sell them to the rest of the social community, I think you could make a small fortune. They are a tremendous group of very smart and

gifted ladies. They make a great difference in our lives. I want to say a special thank-you to Missy Anderson, Barbara Caldwell Taylor, Sue Fletcher, Kathy Harris, Jennifer Moser, Doris Ong, Helene Presutti, Julie Prusak, Jinger Richardson, Diane Ryan and Ellie Shapiro. Pat yourselves on the back, ladies, you did one hell of a job and you also made a lot of money to change the lives of so many!!!! You’ve probably heard by now that Jim Ballinger announced his retirement as the director of the Phoenix Art Museum late last spring. The announcement came as a bit of a surprise to many who believed Mr. Ballinger would be there forever. In 1974 he joined the Phoenix Art Museum and never looked back. To list Mr. Ballinger’s accomplishments would take this entire page. During his tenure he brought the museum to the forefront of international recognition. He did things no one ever dreamed could happen in a city the size of Phoenix at the time. His lofty gambles almost always paid off. Let’s face it, no one’s perfect, but his track record speaks for itself. He did amazing things and he will be missed. I hope Mr. Ballinger does not fade into the woodwork as so many great empire builders before him have. We wish him nothing but the very best! Congratulations! We just returned from a week in London, and what a spectacular trip it was! Although there will be more on that in our September/October issue when we return to print next fall, I thought I would address a few things. I Continued on page 15

La Dolce Vita – Continued from page 13 was appalled at our fellow first-class passengers. As my good friend Ken Downing of Neiman Marcus fame has said several times, “Don’t be afraid of the plane crashing, be more afraid of the people dressed in raggedy attire all around you.” How hard is it to leave the oversized backpack with a dangling water bottle, tennis shoes, talking t-shirts and cargo shorts at home? We live in the greatest country in the world. Yet when many Americans travel, they look better suited for steerage on the Titanic than the airplane cabins and posh restaurants we visited in London. Everywhere we went, you could easily pick out Americans. It was embarrassing and totally unnecessary. I ask you all to set the bar higher this summer when traveling. You owe it to our great country, don’t you think? That aside, I was quite taken by the vast numbers of daily newspapers still in circulation. For centuries the British impressed the rest of the world by combining tabloid with news in their respective papers. On one side of the Daily Mail is a story on terrorism, and on the opposite page a story on Princess Kate looking “air hostessy” compared to Princess Letizia of Spain. The next day the Mail broke the story of a photographed argument between former ad man Charles Saatchi and now-girlfriend Trinny Woodall at the hip London eatery Scott's. It was there only a year before that Mr. Saatchi was also photographed in a choke hold with then-wife, journalist and celebrity chef Nigella Lawson. And we wonder why so many great papers in the U.S. have folded? I think the British have the correct recipe. We also learned that many still believe that Buckingham Palace had something to do with the untimely death of Princess Diana. I must say, I was quite shocked that almost 15 years after her death, a vast number of people we spoke with still suspect foul play was involved. Believe it or not!

Before we close for the summer, I just wanted to stop and thank the many men and women who worked so diligently this season on everything from breakfasts to black-tie charity balls and debutants. It was the busiest season I’ve covered in my 20 years with Trends. At one point we had as many as eight reporters out on a single evening. While it was frustrating from a scheduling standpoint, I’m well aware of how much money was raised. I can only hope that next season events are better spaced out than they were this season. As you know there were weekends when as many as six to eight events took place. There were other weekends when nothing happened. Both the Trends online calendar and the Redbook do an amazing job listing events. I hope next season charities might stop dog-piling on each other. We’ll see you back here in October! Have a wonderful and safe summer! In Cocktail Polo News You Should Know: That a high-profile socialite has gone to great lengths to mask the darkness of her previous life ... That a quiet philanthropist just gave a group of children literature for a year ... That a beautiful blonde who’s making her way up the social ladder should be more concerned about the con artist she married, than being seen around town ... That several very wealthy ladies might want to rethink the vulgarity of their jewelry because the community already In Cocktail Polo News you should know: knows you’re rich ... That a gentleman who is so caught up in his anger toward others might want to invest in some solid counseling before it kills him ... That a soft-spoken social climber just might have finally realized that you get back what you put out ... That two well-known men should be very careful about their business practices in the social community ... That one of the most beautiful ladies in the social swim is far too lovely to be single.

Bo Derek

When Bo Derek was in town for Celebrity Fight Night, she was nice enough to give us a little time and answer some questions. The legendary beauty and talented actress is obviously a fan of Fight Night. She tells us why. How do you compare Celebrity Fight Night to other charity events? Celebrity Fight Night is the most extraordinary event I’ve ever witnessed. Every year, I’m blown away by the generosity and enthusiastic spirit of philanthropy. Truly, I refer to CFN in conversation all year long as a unique organization “that does it right.” What do like most about Celebrity Fight Night? The sense that SFN still feels like a local community effort. Although the event is obviously on a huge, world-class scale, there is still so much love in that ballroom. Then, of course, seeing the Champ and being able to give him a kiss on the cheek is a gift. What are your five favorite films? “Apocalypse Now,” “Empire of the Sun,” “African Queen,” “Lawrence of Arabia” and “Life Aquatic.” The order depends on my mood, and if I think about this for another 10 minutes I can come up with a new list altogether. What do you consider your greatest hour professionally? Once, after finishing a scene with Sir Anthony Hopkins, I realized that I had lost my sense of place completely, and he gave me a compliment. But then, who wouldn’t when you look in those eyes!

Spotlight on painter Gayle Nason Tucson artist Gayle Nason is a self-taught artist who works in oil using multiple applications of glazes, as did the Old Masters. From rural Iowa, Nason moved to Arizona in 1969. Her photorealistic still-lifes of Native American pottery and clothing reflect her fascination for the historical legacy of the Native population of the West.

Nason shows at Legacy Gallery, 7178 E. Main St., Scottsdale. She will be a part of Legacy’s Summer Spectacular Artwalk 7 to 9 p.m. July 10. Legacy is at 480.945.1113 or

Nason’s renditions of historical Native American pottery and beadwork depict objects that date from the late 1850s to the early 1900s. Depending upon the size and complexity of the painting, each can take three to six weeks or longer to complete. Each bead is finished separately with six to 10 glazes of paint. This glazing technique creates the luminescent quality that makes the beads in Gayle’s paintings look so realistic.

Spotlight on SMoCA Bill Owens’ “Suburbia” (1973) is a series of strange and compelling photographs that reveal the complexities of the American middle-class landscape.

The exhibit at SMoCA will run through Sept. 7. SMoCA is located at 7374 E. Main Street, Scottsdale. For more information call 480.874.4666. Or visit

Utilizing a straightforward and direct photographic style, Owens documented the customs, symbols and social dynamics of various Northern California housing developments. With an eye for humor, he confirmed assumptions of its perceived banality, uniformity and careless comfort, but tempered them with empathetic attention to the unexpected beauty, uniqueness and anxieties that are equally part of suburban life. Accompanying quotations from the individuals in the images describe the opportunities and challenges of everyday life in their new environments. Pairing a seemingly objective visual style with subjective statements of lived experiences he pinpointed the tensions that exist at the intersection of the American dream and reality.

Spotlight on Spotlight on the Phoenix Art Museum Drawing from recent gifts to the Museum, “Quiet Rage, Gentle Wail” will explore Noh, the traditional Japanese theater form that incorporates music, dance and drama. Noh Theater was established during the 14th century when a few talented writer-actors transformed the popular entertainment into a sophisticated, intellectual art backed by the ruling class. Through the stories adopted from well-known myths, historical events and classical literatures, Noh dramas explore profound human emotions with subtle and symbolic performances.

Matsuki commissioned a painter Tsukioka Kogyo, ¯ an avid fan of Noh Theater himself, who successfully captured the quintessential moments in Noh dramas in these prints. The masks are from the pre-modern and early modern eras, and encompass a wide variety of specimens, from a quiet male figure to an angry female demon. Together they reveal how such a mask with its emblematic expression contributes to a subtle performance of Noh. The exhibit will be on display at the museum June 4 through Sept. 28. The museum is located at 1625 N. Central Ave. 602.257.1222 or

Bringing together different media that relate to Noh Theater, this exhibition will have a multi-dimensional approach to appreciate Noh and its aesthetics: simplicity, nuance and the distaste for realism. Included in the exhibition are 22 Noh masks, a pair of twopanel screens and approximately 24 prints that depict Noh actors on stage. Prints in the exhibition were published by Matsuki Heikichi, who aimed to revive the tradition of fine Japanese woodblock prints, production of which reached its peak in the 18th century but declined in the 19th century due to the increased volume of production.

Spotlight on the Heard Museum “That’s the Way I Like It” is an exciting exhibit at the Heard that will stay up through the summer. It’s sure to be a crowd-pleaser, especially since that’s how the exhibition was born. The Heard asked visitors to the museum and online visitors to its Facebook page to vote on their favorite artworks among those donated to the museum. The picks create a wonderful collection of the Heard’s most recent contemporary acquisitions. The donated items were given to the museum by varied collectors, and visitor votes have helped to curate and create the final exhibit.

Balloting for the exhibit started last fall and ended in mid-February. Museum visitors received a blue chip – like a poker chip – that they could place in one of 22 blue boxes placed near the Lovena Ohl Gallery, where the show opened in April. Midway through the contest, Darren Vigil Gray’s 2011 acrylic on canvas painting, “Motherland of Basketmakers #16,” was in the lead and stayed there. Meanwhile, visitors to the Heard’s Facebook page could also see the same photos of artworks and vote online. Facebook friends selected Fausto Fernandez’s 2009 mixed

media artwork, “Demographic Fabric of America.” Curators have pulled other works received since polling began. So take a cool stroll through the Heard sometime this hot summer. You’re sure to see some wonderful art. The show will run through Feb. 8, 2015. The Heard is located at 2301 N. Central Ave., Phoenix. 602.252.8848 or

Yasu Sushi Bistro By Laurie Florence-Manucci Tucked away in a very unassuming strip mall is an upscale, cozy sushi joint. Actually it is a true Japanese bistro. There are many sushi restaurants in the Valley from very high end to your local grocery store variety. This place is truly remarkable. The seating here is tight, but that only adds to the allure. It’s a well-dressed-up spot that has a trendiness all its own with dim lighting and very few tables, but you can also sit at the sushi counter or the patio outside. The place is absolutely divine. Sushi chef and owner Yasu Hashino prepares some of the best sushi in the Valley. There are several menus, which can be a bit confusing at times, but if you want a really great experience just order a little bit of everything off each menu as the portion sizes are kind of small. There is a tapas menu offering over a dozen different items from Bistro Green Beans, Shrimp Fondue, Beef Short Ribs, Bay Scallops and a Roll of the Day. There is a sushi menu offering several selections of nigiri, sashimi and several familiar and unique rolls like the shrimp tempura roll and classic Yasu roll. From the kitchen menu everything is prepared by “Sumibiyaki,” which refers to the grill, in which the food is prepared over a binchotan charcoal grill. The food is fragrant and infused with a smoky flavor and is a Japanese tradition. Some of the items include Saikyo Black Cod and European Sea Bass (Branzino). Bistro Lamb Chops, Seared Ribeye and Teriyaki Salmon are other items not to be missed. Once again the menu is quite large and a bit overwhelming, but the servers are great and will help you with a recommendation as Bryan, our server, did. Some of the items we ordered were the Garlic Miso Manila Clams and the Softshell Crab Tempura Skewers, and all were delicious. The stand-out item for me, though, was the Carpaccio. It is simply mind-blowing and again very unique, something you don’t see on other sushi menus. This is where chef Yasu really shines. There is a Tuna, Hamachi, Yellowtail, Seared Scallop, and Red Snapper Carpaccio, so if you want to taste heaven on earth, the Carpaccios are not to be missed. The fish is sliced very thin and silky and is the smoothest and most flavorful thing ever! You will be hooked and never want to order anything else here! You basically cannot go wrong with anything once you figure out the complex menu, but the choices are outstanding and the quality is definitely above what a lot of other sushi restaurants have to offer. So go to Yasu Sushi Bistro and check it out for yourself! And order the CARPACCIO! Yasu Sushi Bistro is located at 4316 E. Cactus Road, Phoenix. 602.787.9181

Here’s a neat little dinner party/entertaining item called CheeseTiles. They are stylish erasable ceramic accent labels for cheeses or desserts – anything edible, really – and great for any gathering with food. They come in a variety of styles such as Fleurdi-Lis, Shell, Vine and more. From what we can see, they really put a nice touch on any display. We’re thinking they’d be an elegant replacement for cheap paper or plastic tags, and would be a great way to highlight the name of what you’re offering your guests. CheeseTiles retail for $29.95 for a set of four. They can be purchased online or via phone. For a list of retailers that might be carrying this practical party enhancer, visit

T. COOK’S WITH NEW LOOKS One huge secret of enduringly successful restaurants is the capacity to retool. Change the look. Change the menu. Do it when things get stale. Our congratulations go out to T. Cook’s at the Royal Palms Resort. In September the restaurant unveiled its new look. The longstanding eatery was closed over the summer for redesign, and they picked a good summer. Who felt like eating in that kind of heat! The place got a full facelift led by Haley Balzano of Bar Napkin Productions. In the kitchen, the menu was revamped with Executive Chef Paul McCabe steering course. To top it off, there’s a new bar concept – The Mix Up Bar. The bar will showcase a hand-crafted, garden-to-glass beverage menu, live entertainment and small plates. Kim Haasarud of Liquid Architecture did the honors. As anyone who’s been there knows, the Royal Palms boasts an amazing setting, and this redo of the dining option there can only enhance the feel. T. Cook’s is at 5200 E. Camelback Road, Phoenix. 602.808.0766.

Rendez-Zoo 2014 Rendez-Zoo, An Evening of Conservation and Cuisine, will take place at the stunning and picturesque Phoenix Zoo on Oct. 11, chaired by Charles and Jennifer Sands. Now in its fifth year, Rendez-Zoo offers the perfect blend of amazing local cuisine while highlighting the zoo’s world-renowned conservation efforts. We are excited to recognize Richard and Elaine Morrison, longtime friends and supporters of the zoo as this year’s honorary chairs. Give us a glimpse into Rendez-Zoo this year. (Jennifer) Guests will be welcomed by the melodious sounds of the Phoenix Boys Choir, then taste creations from some of the Valley’s finest restaurants, bid on unique items at the silent and live auctions and enjoy a preview of ZooLights. They will also experience up-close encounters with several of the zoo’s animal ambassadors. An elegant seated dinner served lakeside by Chef Eddie Matney follows with dancing to the music of the Raun Alosi Band. Is there a theme for the event this year? (Charles) The theme this year is Collaboration in Conservation. The Phoenix Zoo collaborates with an extraordinary number of organizations, and these relationships are critical to the outreach and conservation efforts of the zoo. A video will be presented at Rendez-Zoo highlighting several of these alliances. How will the money that is raised benefit the Zoo? (Charles) As one of the largest non-profit and self-sustaining zoos in the country, the Phoenix Zoo uses the proceeds from Rendez-Zoo to continue to expand its world-class conservation efforts, create and offer educational programming and contribute toward the care of the more than 1,400 animals who call the zoo home. What do you hope to accomplish at Rendez-Zoo? (Jennifer) The goal of Rendez-Zoo is to raise awareness of the zoo’s conservation efforts. We hope that by planting a small seed of inspiration and motivation to care for the natural world, our guests will leave encouraged to contribute to the worlds’ delicate ecosystem in their own individual ways. Reservations may be made online at rendezzoo or by calling Jodi Leduc at 602.286.3855.




‘The Hiltons: The True Story of an American Dynasty’ By Bill Dougherty J. Randy Taraborelli has done it once again. The founder of the Supremes fan club in the mid-1960s who rose to great fame in 1989 with his first international bestseller, “Call Her Miss Ross,” has written what is sure to be his 17th bestseller. This time his favored subject is hotel mogul Conrad Hilton. The meticulously written book chronicles the rags-to-riches dynasty of Conrad Hilton, his four children and the people who pass in and out of their lives for more than 100 years. Crowned the man with the Midas touch, Mr. Hilton’s belief that hotels should offer every amenity possible turned him into a billionaire by the mid-1950s. He married Zsa Zsa Gabor, the second of his three wives. They remained joined at the hip for the rest of their lives. Even after their divorce, due largely to religious differences, Mr. Hilton oversaw Ms. Gabor’s finances and contract negotiations, making her and her family million­aires many times over. The couple shared a daughter, Francesca, who preferred blue jeans and tennis shoes to her mother’s marabou feathers, winged eyeliner and Harry Winston starter kit. The Hilton boys, Barron, Nicky and Eric, were fiercely competitive and hard-working. Their tireless dedication to their beloved father speaks volumes about the way they were raised. Nicky Hilton proved the wild card of the family. A playboy and womanizer, he smoked three packs of cigarettes a day and drank like a fish. Sadly, he died

far too early. Surprisingly it is his first wife, Elizabeth Taylor, who returned to the scene to glue the family back together after Nick’s untimely death. Like Ms. Taylor, Zsa Zsa Gabor proved to be a central figure. She planned dinner parties for newlywed Hilton wives, loaned servants and arranged tables, slipping out the back door before the first dinner guest arrived. Paris Hilton, the great-granddaughter of Conrad Hilton and granddaughter of Barron, receives little more than a few pages in the book. She is, however, praised for her entrepreneurial sprit, with an estimated worth of $10 million dollars, something her ­great-grandfather would be very proud of today. “The Hiltons” is an excellent summer read. Mr. Taraborelli is quick to point out that Conrad Hilton believed wealth should not be inherited. He expected all four of his children to work. At one point in the book, daughter Francesca asks for a loan. She is given it and then quickly installed behind the check-in desk of the Beverly Hilton. You get the picture.

Béau Vie scented candles Trends tested one of these high-end Béau Vie candles – the Tuberose Mughetto. Within 30 seconds of lighting the wick an amazing scent filled the room. It smelled like parties and cocktails and dimmed lights and, of course, great conversation. The Tuberose Mughetto scent was not shy and yet not overpowering. These candles pack a subtle punch, delivering a burn time of about 60 hours. They feature fine ingredients and refined fragrances that have stood the test of time. They are hand-crafted locally, in Arizona. The secret to Béau Vie involves nothing more complicated than fine ingredients and timeless fragrance. Here are a few of the scents:

•K affir Lime. This lively fragrance also deodorizes; kaffir lime leaves are immersed in Oriental herbs and a touch of lime oil. • Orange Blossom. This simple, dreamy fragrance boasts the classic scent of orange blossoms.

embellishes the tart base, making this Red Currant fragrance stand above most.

• Fig Tree. Sharp fig, fresh leaves, and warm wood. This refined fig scent captures the entire essence of the magnificent fig tree.

Come check out these amazing candles at the Linen Tree. We think you’ll find their company engaging and almost hypnotic. They make great gifts.

•C herry Blossom. The classic fragrance of blooming cherry blossoms needs no introduction.

Emma Amelia

Emma Amelia is a high-maintenance Persian, and the 3-year-old insists on living a pampered lifestyle with all the perks, including a window perch, an extra-fluffy bed and a canned dinner each night – make it tuna flavored. Persians require daily grooming in order to maintain their regal appearance, and Emma Amelia loves being brushed. She makes grooming easy by rolling around like a fish out of water to ensure that you don’t miss a spot. Her adoption fee is $40.

Diego Diego is a scruffy 5-year-old Maltese with wonderful manners. The moment you walk through the door, this lover boy will melt to the floor and roll over for a muchanticipated belly rub (if he grumbles, you know you’ve found the sweet spot). He likes going for a casual stroll in the evenings followed by cuddle time with his owner on the couch. He’s a great little lap dog who will follow you around the house and would appreciate having access to a cozy dog bed in each room. His adoption fee is $50. Emma Amelia and Diego are just a few of the many adoptable pets at the Arizona Humane Society’s Campus for Compassion located at 1521 W. Dobbins Road, Phoenix. For more information call 602.997.7585 and ask for animal ID numbers A479106 (Emma) or A479115 (Diego). Or visit
