Try out these recipes to keep your dog happy during your Thanksgiving dinner.
Stuffable puzzle toys for dogs are a saving grace around the holidays! I consider the equivalent of setting a young child up with a coloring book and crayons as busy work when guests are over. One of the most classic dog puzzle toys around is the Kong, a durable rubber toy with a hollow center which comes in a variety of sizes and strengths, to suit nearly any dog on the planet. How I often wish that I had been the inventor of this brilliantly simple, yet ingenious design! As much as I consider the Kong the foundation piece of a new dog’s puzzle collection, some owners complain to me that their pet sadly showed no interest in this iconic dog toy. My reply? You must not have introduced it in quite the right way yet. I always think back to …

Do you need a little extra convincing about shopping locally this year? Here are a few.
Arlington is filled with local shops and plenty of gift options for this holiday season. The Board of Selectmen has approved free parking around town on Saturdays so folks can shop without worrying about filling the meter. And according to the Arlington Chamber of Commerce, $68 out of every $100 spent in local businesses stay here, as opposed to only $43 spent at non-local businesses. Those facts alone sound like great reasons to avoid big box stores and stay in town to shop. But some of us still need a little extra convincing. So here are 10 more great reasons, from the Arlington Chamber of Commerce, why we should try to patronize our many locally owned stores:
A photo collection of the annual Thanksgiving match and the community coming together to experience hometown football.
Arlington Catholic (9-1) faced off against in-town rival Arlington High School (3-8) Thanksgiving morning in their annual matchup. Coming off of a season in which they remained undefeated until a loss in the title match against Cardinal Spellman, Arlington Catholic was looking to capitalize on the Spy Ponders' three-win season and avenge their 42-14 loss to AHS last Thanksgiving. They did just that. Not allowing AHS to put any points on the board until well into the second half, the Cougars held the Spy Ponders at dock and emerged victorious with a 28-7 score.

It’s that time of year to extend our hearts out to others.
It’s that time of year again. You know, that time when most people extend their hearts out in some shape or form to others. Whether it is through gifts or acts of kindness, this time of year seems to open people’s hearts. And the awesome thing about the holidays is the way everyone feels: It doesn’t matter if you do the giving or receiving, caring always feels good. This year I have a challenge for you. If you are fairly handy or have ambitions to be handy, I challenge you to make gifts rather than buy them. I think we can all agree that there is something indescribable about putting your own sweat (and sometimes blood) into a gift for someone. I have been making gifts for family and friends since I can remember. And my parents still have …
