Dear Tabby, We just got our first puppy and we’d like to do some basic training with her. Is this something that we can do ourselves or should we go to a dog trainer? Also, what are the basic commands and tricks that we need to teach our new dog? Thinking about training in Timbergrove Dear Thinking about training, Dogs are pack animals and, as such, they want to live in a cohesive, functioning pack. In order to cohabitate with their human pack, they need to be shown who’s boss (spoiler alert: your dog should NOT be the boss) and taught the rules. By nature, your dog wants your approval. She wants to please you (most of the time, anyway!). But she can’t do that without being taught what you expect of her. Everyone in the household is better off if the dog conforms to the behavior … [Read more...] about DIY dog training? Or go with the professional?
A unique fundraiser for the Houston Food Bank is also the chance for some Heights artists to showcase their work. The 15th Annual Empty Bowls lunch will be held from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday at the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft, 4848 Main St. At the event, more than 1,500-plus handmade bowls donated by Houston-area artists will be offered for a $25 donation, 100 percent of which goes to the food bank. Attendees eat a simple lunch in the provided bowl, which will be a lasting reminder of all who go hungry in Houston and beyond. Ceramic artist Mary Aldrich, who took up the craft in 2010, said she was introduced to the cause by fellow artist and former Empty Bowls chair Renee LeBlanc. As a student at the Glassell School, Aldrich started making bowls for the event. This year, … [Read more...] about Beautiful bowls for worthy cause
Two days after being released from jail, Michael Derouselle was arrested again and charged with felony theft, according to a Facebook post Thursday by the office of Harris County Constable Alan Rosen. The post said deputies recognized Derouselle, 56, because he was seen wearing a green and white "trucker" hat on surveillance video as well as several social media posts. The suspect was captured on video taking two bicycles valued at $1,500 from the backyard of a residence in the 2000 block of Arlington Street on April 4. The Facebook post said Cpl.

Three years ago, Heights resident Heather Potts met her son, Trésor. He was not an infant but nearly 7 years old, and the meeting did not take place in a hospital room but in the East African country of Burundi. Her overwhelming feeling of love, though, was the same as it would have been had she given birth to him. "Trésor is my favorite person ever and I’m the luckiest mama ever," Potts said. As right as the role seems now, Potts remembers a time when she didn’t think children would be a part of the picture. She worked long hours as a lawyer and was single. "My house had white furniture and pale gray walls," she said. "I thought I might get married but not have kids.” A pivotal conversation with a fellow lawyer in June 2014 made Potts realize she could balance her career … [Read more...] about Mother like any other: Heights resident cherishes relationship with adopted son
