Dear Tabby, How often should we be bathing our pets? My husband and I disagree on the topic. I feel like our dogs need to be bathed once a week, but he thinks we should only bathe them as needed. What do you think? Questioning Pet’s Hygiene in The Heights Dear Questioning Pet’s Hygiene, Anyone who lives in close quarters with pets know they can get stinky from time to time (and they’d likely say the same about you!).

Part of the event’s purpose was to unveil bottles of a new beer. It also benefited two animal rescue groups, which received hundreds of dollars in cash donations as well as food, toys and cleaning products for pets. One of the people who visited Brash Brewing Company on the night of Nov. 23 described it as a “very welcoming, very upbeat and happy environment.” But to Oak Forest resident Natalie Phillips, along with fellow Catholics in the Houston area and beyond, what took place at the popular local brewery was an abomination. A spokesperson for The Satanic Temple Houston said the religious organization was invited by the brewery to perform a black mass – coinciding with the sale of bottles of Black Masses, the name of an imperial coffee milk stout brewed by Brash.

Both involved parties have been cited following a single-vehicle accident involving two pedestrians in Garden Oaks earlier this week. Houston Police Department spokesperson Victor Senties said officers were called out to a crash in the 4100 block of North Shepherd Drive near West Crosstimbers Road shortly before 4:30 p.m. Monday. Senties said the driver of a Chevy pickup truck was traveling northbound on Shepherd when it struck two pedestrians who were crossing Shepherd from the east to the west, not in a crosswalk. Police issued citations to the pedestrians for failing to yield the right of way to a vehicle, and to the driver for having no driver’s license, according to Senties. Senties said an initial investigation revealed that pedestrians failed to yield the right of way to the … [Read more...] about Citations issued in auto-pedestrian crash on North Shepherd
