Play Your Cards Right

Posted by on Feb 20, 2015 in Uncategorized

We love our pets. And we know you love your pets, too. Just to give you a heads up, today is  “National Love Your Pet Day.” So toss your pup an extra treat, give your cat some extra catnip, or buy your goldfish a new little, fake pirate ship for his bowl.

While we’re on the subject of pets, pick up a copy of More Pet Friends: With Terrie Q and Travelin’ Jack, published by LPD Press and Rio Grande Books. Book proceeds benefit Kennel Kompadres, Sunflower Sanctuary Animal Rescue, and Save Lucky Paws.

And, of course, don’t forget to check out some of these awesome ABQ happenings.

We’re Jammin’Monster truck

And we hope you like jammin’ too, as Bob Marley would say. And no, Monster Jam isn’t monster-flavored goopy stuff you spread on toast. It’s actually a monster truck show, happening this weekend at Expo New Mexico.

Check out an impressive lineup of monster trucks, such as Scooby Doo, El Diablo, and McGruff.

Engines will fire up tonight and tomorrow at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, Feb. 22 at 2 p.m. It’s an all-ages show and tickets are $5–$30.
