Flagstaff Sedona Dog Magazine

Leader of the Pack


We are very happy to bring our Annual Holiday Gift Guide to our readers again this year!  We hope you enjoy reading the various ads with their suggestions for the people on your gift list.  You are sure to find some very unique ideas for gifts.

This year we have added three pages devoted to animal rescue.  You will find lots of ideas for a gift for that person on your list who “has everything”.  Make a donation in his or her name to your choice of rescue non-profits.  The rescue animals will benefit, the gift recipient will receive a wonderful gift, and you will have that warm feeling of having done something good on behalf of homeless pets.  That is probably the best gift of all.

This edition our Cover Story is about a residential facility in Camp Verde for adults with a variety of cognitive and developmental disabilities.  Rainbow Acres is a not-for-profit organization.  Animals play a huge part in the lives of the residents.  Our readers will learn about the success of the therapeutic equine program at Rainbow Acres.

Our Business Spotlight features the new owner and medical director of the Flagstaff Veterinary Emergency & Specialty Center of Northern Arizona, Dr. Ayman Wassef.  This facility is open from Friday evenings through Monday mornings for emergency care for our pets.  We welcome Dr. Wassef to our community.

This edition we welcome a new regular feature to our magazine.  Thank you to dedicated rescue animal lover Jackie Peters for her contribution in creating this new section we are calling “Home at Last!”  Each edition we will feature a rescue animal who has found his or her “forever home”.  Jackie has written the first story about her dog Scarlotte, who she found on our “Dogs for Adoption” page earlier this year.  It is gratifying to me to know that the animals we feature on our adoption pages every edition are seen and find new homes with our help.  This is why we work so hard on this magazine—to bring attention to local rescue animals and help find homes for all of these worthy pets.

We are featuring K9 Officer Claymore of the Camp Verde Marshal’s Office in our “Dogs in Uniform” this edition.  Read about all of the services this dog performs for the people of Camp Verde, along with his partner and handler, Deputy Jeff Bowers.

Our “Horsin’ Around” feature in this edition is written by Kim Meagher.  She is the Founder of Wildhorse Ranch Rescue in Gilbert and has been instrumental in rescuing abused horses, mules and homeless dogs from the Havasupai region of Arizona.  We know you will enjoy reading her articles, and learning from her experience with equines.

Our own Timber writes about keeping your animals safe during Halloween and Thanksgiving.  Read “Timber Talks” to learn from a dog’s perspective how to have happy and safe holidays with your pets.

From our family to yours, we wish you a blessed and happy Thanksgiving.
