Designer Doodles

As long as I can remember, I have loved animals. In my childhood we had horses, bunnies, cats, hermit crabs, and my favorite of them all, dogs. Our beloved Retrievers were not allowed in the house because of our severe allergies. This is not a problem that only my family encountered. In the early 1990s, a blind woman in Hawaii needed a service dog, but her husband was allergic to all dogs that shed. Because they most commonly use Labradors and Golden Retrievers as service dogs, this was a dilemma for them.

Be A Hero

If you know me, you know I’m obsessed with my boxer. The truth is, I like dogs more than I like most people. This makes helping with animal rescue come naturally. Adopting instead of buying a dog or a cat gives you the chance to save a life! There are countless healthy, friendly, lovable dogs and cats scheduled for euthanasia in shelters right now. Once I realized the need for fostering and adopting was so immense, it just didn’t make sense to buy another dog. I initially got involved in dog rescue when I spotted my first foster, Carino, on Facebook.

It Is Never Too Late

2nd Annual CASA & TCAC Save Jane Event

… On April 1, 2021 local volunteers and community members joined the Texarkana Children’s Advocacy Center and CASA for Children Texarkana in taking a stand against child abuse through a live video on their Facebook pages with the Save Jane event. … Leaders from the Texarkana community read the names and ages of over 1,100 children who were reported as abused and received services through the Children’s Advocacy Center and CASA in 2020. Because these children are minors and their identities must be protected, “Jane Doe” and “John Doe” were used in place of their names.

The Service of Peace

After dealing with intractable seizures since the age of 11, I looked into getting a service dog for comfort, care and especially greater independence since I was 27 years old. Online, I came across a breeder in Oklahoma City that breeds labradoodles for a service/therapy dog organization called Paws with a Cause.

Every parent dreams their child will do big things and make a difference, but for Amanda and Lance Gainey, that dream is a reality… and a wild ride! The Gainey’s 13-year-old twin sons, Ethan and Hayden, are sweeping titles across the country for Miniature Bull Riding, and both boys have achieved world champion status. Ethan won the International Miniature Bull Riding Association (IMBA) Junior World Championship in Mesquite, Texas, and Hayden won the International Miniature Rodeo Association (IMRA) Junior Mini Reserve World Championship in Guthrie, Oklahoma.

Happy first birthday to Cardinal Publishing! We started this journey a year ago, and what a year it has been. Our initial intent was to be a monthly printed publication, hence the name Texarkana Monthly, but 2020 had other plans. It inspired us to step outside the box, transitioning our debut from print to a digital weekly correspondence, Talk Tuesday. Our team had lots of laughs about our name being Texarkana Monthly. “Texarkana Digital Weekly” would have made more sense because the print magazine did not officially become a reality until November.

A Sarine Thought… or Two

Put me in, Coach!Ah, “sports-momming,” it is not for the faint of heart. It’s a non-stop, full-throttle, adrenaline-inducing race to get your child to every practice, warm-up and game whatever the sport of the moment. For some, it is a calling. For others, it is a tolerance. But for all, it is what we do on the “reg” for our precious sports-loving offspring. … Personally, I cannot claim to enjoy all aspects of the sports momming life. While I have many extroverted tendencies, I also value A LOT of time in my domestic domicile.
