Yappy Hour Pet Resort's 11,000-square-foot facility provides a home away from home for pups of all shapes and sizes. The climate-controlled indoor play area is scattered with pet-friendly mats and dishes of cool water but is still large enough for rambunctious canines to romp and play ironic games of Red Rover. During overnight stays, individual kennels can be decorated with your four-legged friend’s favorite bedding or toys, or energetic dogs can relax in an extended 10'x30' room, which features plenty of rolling-over room. Boarded dogs get all-day access to the play area and a complimentary bedtime treat made in Yappy Hour Pet Resort's onsite doggy bakery.
Now in its 53rd year, Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church's festival once more celebrates the rich history and culture of Greece with live dance, traditional food, and Hellenistic arts and crafts. Visitors can watch displays of traditional dancing as troupes of costumed performers whirl and leap to folk tunes. Open-mouthed onlookers can snack on souvlaki, gyros, and baked pastitsio or shout out traditional Greek exclamations such as "Opa!", "Yassou!", and "Don't drop that Olympic torch!"
Church tours introduce festivalgoers to the stunning gilded iconography of Annunciation's sanctuary, and also give them a brief lesson on the symbolism, teaching, and history of the Greek Orthodox Church. Outside, kids get their faces painted, play games, and bounce inside a moonwalk, while adults stroll through the gift shop area, which attempts to tempt them with colorful wares imported from Greece, including fisherman's hats, gold jewelry, and worry beads.

Tammie Howe insists that it is possible to teach an old dog new tricks. In fact, at Behave Dog Training, she's designed a class specifically for older dogs that need to break bad habits, such as jumping on people, pulling on the leash, or begging to stay up late to watch Dog Whisperer. With more than 10 years of working with families and their canine companions, she often works with owners who are at their wit's end with problem behavior and relishes how pleased they are when they learn how to effect changes in their pups.
