Do you know what the phrase “dog days of summer” actually

means? I always assumed it referred to the sticky, sweltering

days of the season when man’s best friend lethargically lazes

around panting in the heat. Silly me. According to Wikipedia,

the expression has nothing to do with Fido and was originally

coined by ancient Greeks and Romans when the “dog star,” Sirius,

shined the brightest—typically in late July—which they believed,

when combined with the sun’s intensity, caused blisteringly hot

summer temps. You learn something new every day, right?

I still prefer my interpretation (astrology’s never been my strong suit) so I find it particularly

fitting that this month’s issue is dedicated to actual dogs—and all our other beloved furry

and feathered friends—that we

lovingly call family.

In addition to an adorable

pictorial of local “People and Their

Pets” (page 49), which features

in-depth “tails” about three

particularly top dogs—from Eros, a

justice-seeking K9 at the Roseville

Police Department; to a mochacolored

Labradoodle, Max, who

works as a therapy pup at Marshall

Medical Center; and the first-ever

certified dual purpose running

guide dog in the U.S., Klinger—we

also have an article on “9 Ways

“The world

would be a

nicer place

if everyone

had the ability

to love as

unconditionally

as a dog.”—

M.K. Clinton

Animals Help Heal Us” in Health & Wellness (page 36), “5 Stylish

Pet-Proof Solutions” to protect your pad against our dear animals’

antics in Home Design (page 40), and a rundown of “Pet Products

We Love” (all available at area mom-and-pop shops) in Swag

(page 42). Whether you’re a pet parent or not, and whether you

fancy felines or prefer puppies, there’s plenty of cuteness and

interesting info to go ’round.

Animals aside, we have much more in store too. For those

nearing or who have reached retirement, I recommend reading

“Senior Center Activities for All” (page 62). You might be surprised

to learn about the array of offerings available, which definitely

go beyond bingo (think clogging, crafts, computer classes, monthly movies, and so much more).

My grandma—who turns 97 next month(!)—is living proof that staying active and connected to

community are key components to aging gracefully.

July also happens to be National Grilling and Ice Cream Month and—with Independence Day,

and blazing temps, upon us—it’s a prime time to indulge in both. Invite your friends, neighbors,

and family over for a backyard BBQ starring juicy, build-your-own cheeseburgers with homemade

pickles (see page 78 for the recipe) and make sure to save room for one of our six frozen favorites

in “The Cool List” on page 72.

As we journey into the upcoming “dog days,” I hope you find somewhere nice and cool to flip

through the pet-filled pages of this issue. Cheers!

What’s the most

mischievous thing

your pet has ever

done?

“Though not necessarily

mischievous, Mildred gets

right up behind me and falls

asleep on my back. It warms

my heart (and back) every

time she does it. I just have

to ignore the drool.”—Wendy

Sipple

“I had a clepto cat who would

steal all kinds of things,

especially my jewelry. When

I moved my sofa one day, I

found a stash of everything

she had stolen over the years

in a neat pile.”—Bettie Grijalva

“Before heading on a three-hour car

ride home, Sadie rolled in (and

ingested) what we concluded

was a dead animal. Frustrated,

we quickly washed her off and

loaded her in the bed of the

truck; upon arriving home,

we discovered she had been

expelling from both ends—

poor dog. Thanks for cleaning it

up, Dad!”—Emily Peter

“My first dog got into the garage

and ate an entire tube of

bicycle lubricating grease.

After visiting the vet—and

spending a good chunk of

change—he survived.”—Reg

Holliday

“Pooped…all over our carpeted

bedroom floor. Poor Leia had

an upset tummy. We woke

up in the middle of the night

to cacophonous sounds

and pungent smells.”—Tara

Mendanha

ask the experts

What are the developmental

benefits of enrolling my child into

an aquatics camp?

Aquatics camps teach life—and lifesaving—skills while encouraging

positive and fun socialization. What’s more, they enhance

independence, help increase self-confidence, and teach your child to

respect the environment and nature (including the parts that aren’t

so kind like poison oak, hypothermia, river currents, rattlesnakes,

etc.). Ultimately, your child will create unforgettable memories while

making new friends and learning skills that a camper can use for the

rest of their life.

Hazel Avenue, Gold River // 916-278-2842, sacstateaquaticcenter.com

At what age

should I enroll

my child into

pre-K?

We believe that education can

start as early as 18 months, as

toddler programs offer children

an environment where he/she

can learn to socialize and use

large and small motor skills, as

well as be exposed to sensory

building, music enrichment,

and movement. The younger

you can introduce your child to

these things, the better prepared he/she will be. With that, a pre-K

classroom usually starts at the age of four, where children learn to

expand their learning through name writing, counting, math skills,

and phonics. It’s important to find a pre-k that offers extracurricular

activities—such as Spanish, ballet, and soccer—to further enhance

their growth and abilities.

WEIDEL ON

WHEELS

The iconic 2018 Ford

Mustang is 54 years old.

Despite its age, the winning

formula for this “muscle car”

is basically unchanged—

it’s still fun, fast, affordable, and sexy—with way more

sophistication than when it was first introduced. Thanks to a

purposeful new redesign three years ago, there’s little doubt

that the automobile has picked up some additional admirers.

Check out Weidel on Wheels for an in-depth look.

“GLAMP” WITH STYLE

Towering pines, dramatic coastline, and a gently lapping

river are all easily accessible when staying at Mendocino

Grove. The canine- and kid-friendly “campground”—

sited 1/4 mile south of

Mendocino proper—

boasts safari-style

tents replete with real

(and super cozy) beds,

warm down comforters,

lanterns, cotton towels,

and electricity. Steamy

showers stocked with

organic bath products, on-demand hot water and tea,

a private picnic table and fire pit at each site, gas grills,

and complimentary breakfast bar, plus weekend yoga

and guided nature walks are all part of the amenities.

It’s essentially “camping made comfy” and the ideal

destination for people who appreciate nature with

a touch of class. For a full review about our recent

experience, including must-do activities in the area, head

Q &A

WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO YOUR

YOUNGER SELF?

It’s OK to focus on your career, but don’t

forget that family comes first.

WHAT COMES TO YOU NATURALLY?

I’m a take-charge person. If no one steps

up to take care of business, I’ll do it without

being asked.

ARE YOU HIGH OR LOW MAINTENANCE?

Definitely high maintenance. I like to keep

busy and am constantly on the go, which

can put those around me in stressful

situations.

FAVORITE HUMANITARIAN CAUSE?

As a Rotarian, I’m grateful to have the

opportunity to be a part of an organization

that helps people with local and

international projects.

Rosario

Rodriguez

BEST WORDS OF WISDOM YOU’VE

RECEIVED?

My father was a man of few words, but

through his actions he spoke to me about

integrity, hard work, accountability, and

being responsible. These are principles

that have helped me through life’s journey.

WHAT’S NEXT?

Writing is my outlet, so possibly to write

a book.

Folsom resident Rosario

Rodriguez still looks back

fondly on childhood

summers in Mexico, making

tortillas by hand with her

aunts and grandmothers. She

grew up surrounded by foodie culture in San

Francisco, but she attributes her love of cooking

and good food to the rich flavors of her youth.

Two years ago, she opened Sutter Street

Taqueria, making the leap from successful

health care administrator to small business

owner. Although it was a frightening prospect

at first, it was her parents’ absolute faith in her

that enabled the entrepreneur to pursue her

dream. “I went to them and said, ‘Hey, I want

to take my lifelong knowledge of Mexican food

and open a restaurant,’” she recalls. “It took

my father five seconds to say, ‘sure,’ and give

me the money.”

Since then, Rodriguez has built a reputation

around being a hard worker, once putting in 240

days straight without any time off. “My friends

had to force me to go on vacation,” she says

with a laugh. She also does what she can to give

back, by being a Rotarian, board member for

the Folsom Chamber of Commerce and Twin

Lakes Food Bank, and a commissioner for the

Historic Folsom Commission. In addition, she

regularly donates food to area nonprofits, even

establishing a “suspended meal initiative” at

the taqueria, where diners can purchase a

meal for those who are hungry and may be

experiencing financial difficulties. For her

efforts, she received the 6th Assembly District’s

Woman of the Year Award for 2018. “When you

invest back in community, it builds a stronger

area,” Rodriguez shares. “It’s why Folsom is

such an attractive place to live.”

Barnyard Experience

by Guy Easterling

After years in the

making the Barnyard

Experience—a

nature-based educational center that provides guests with fun and

interactive learning experiences at the Folsom City Zoo Sanctuary—is

finally open. The 3,400-square-foot barn is the new and improved

home for rescued farm animals like miniature donkeys, Hallie and

Rosie; Gus the draft horse; miniature horse Dasher; zebu Ernie, and

more. Guests can also view an active bee hive as the busy workers

produce honey and honeycomb in their indoor hive, pan for

gemstones (additional fee) in the 40-foot C.J. Harrison memorial

sluice, milk an artificial cow, and view a historic display of the Empire

Ranch Barn via artifacts and photos donated

by the Folsom Historical Society. The Barnyard

Experience is open during regular zoo hours:

Tuesday-Sunday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. (through

August 31).

Secret Menu Items

Fancy a covert mission? We do, which is why we went undercover to uncover the following secret and off-menu

items. Go now, on your own mission to sample these delicacies—no codenames, disguises, or secret handshakes

required. In no particular order…

The 10 Spot

Julian's Pâtisserie and Café in

Folsom has some sweet surprises up

its sleeve. Firstly, all of their crêpes are

customizable, so instead of getting their

raspberry Nutella crêpe with candied

almonds, you can go crazy and change it to

strawberries, bananas, and whipped cream

instead. And if you’re crazier still, try the

awesome Frozen Hot Chocolate, which

comes in traditional, caramel, and Oreo

flavors. julianscafe.com

La Provence Restaurant and

Terrace in Roseville has a secret tapas

menu and

weekly

“surprise”

specials menu

that are only

available on

Fridays in

their lounge.

Past items

have included

Deviled Eggs

and Pork Belly with gherkins, croissant

crostini, frisée, and maple sriracha. Don’t

think that’s going to stay a secret much

longer! laprovenceroseville.com

Ask for the Penne

Toscana next time

you visit Vaiano

Tratorria in

Granite Bay.

It begins

with the

browning of

crumbled

sausage,

before red

onions

and red wine

are added to the

mix, after which their

by TARA MENDANHA

homemade meat sauce is incorporated

and tossed with penne before folding

in fresh spinach. Salivating yet? We are.

vaianotrattoria.com

Roll into Folsom’s Hisui Sushi and ask for

the Yost Roll that boasts shrimp tempura,

spicy tuna, crab, fried asparagus, avocado,

fresh ahi tuna, mushrooms, jalapeños,

tobiko, spicy garlic aioli, and unagi sauce.

Now that’s one satisfying mouthful.

hisuisushi.com

Citrus Toro is an über delicious chef’s special

that’s available at Mikuni in Fair Oaks.

Chef Ule serves white tuna toro sashimi

smeared with garlic, garnished with orange

slices, green onions, and chili powder before

being delicately finished with a ponzu and

miso dressing. Talk about a feast for the

senses. mikunisushi.com

Yes, Wally’s Pizza Bar in Cameron

Park has some amazing pizzas—including

their rotating pie-of-the-week (Latin Luau,

Chicken Chili Verde, St. Patrick’s, etc.). But

what we spied with our greedy eyes was

the Sriracha Breakfast Potatoes that

are served for breakfast on weekends.

Their already amazing breakfast potatoes

are tossed in garlic butter and sriracha

seasoning along with peppers and

onions. It’s the perfect wake-up

call! wallyspizzabar.com

Sienna has not one,

not two, but a host of

secret menu options

to choose from.

Think Skirt Steak

Risotto (pictured),

blackened

prawn salad,

and a Philly-style

French dip. Not

to be outdone,

their sister

establishment,

Land Ocean, offers

their own menu of crab

cake sliders, chicken

teriyaki over rice, and The

Lavish chicken sandwich.

siennarestaurants.com;

landoceanrestaurants.com

The Cali Hot Pastrami

at Guy’s for

Lunch in

Roseville has

been named

the Cadillac of

sandwiches—

one customer

even jokingly

calls it the Tesla.

The tender-spicy

pastrami comes with

ripe, smooth avocado,

crispy bacon, and juicy tomato slices with

homemade smoky jalapeño mustard and

a bit of mayonnaise—all between a freshout-of-the-oven

soft sourdough roll.

Acquaint yourself with this beauty the next

time you visit Guy’s. guysforlunch.com

Visconti’s Ristorante in Folsom offers

meatballs that can be added to any menu

item or as a side option to any dish. What

many don't know about their Baked

Meatballs is that they’re twice baked,

which includes being topped with

parmesan and mozzarella then

baked in the oven until sinfully

melty. Have them on a sandwich,

with spaghetti or plain, in all their

delicious glory. viscontisristorante.

com

Fusion Taps is Folsom’s newest

gastropub. Their off-menu Tilapia Larb

is an authentic Thai dish that would

make any fish lover happy. Marinated

with fresh lime juice, tossed in herbs like

lemongrass, mint, cilantro, and galangal,

along with roasted rice powder and chili,

this delicacy is served with lettuce and

cucumbers and makes for a healthy

dining option. fusiontaps.com

Creative Spirit

by HEATHER L. BECKER

With a background in and passion for psychology, artist Kamlika Chandla uses her insight to paint

portraits teeming with deep, often pensive emotions. Relocating to El Dorado Hills two years

ago, Chandla is also a published poet and art instructor, as well as the founder of Musart, a

nonprofit she manages alongside her younger brother. Standing for “music and art,” Musart

aims to collaborate with schools and organizations by creating a forum where children can

explore their creative spirit, especially those who have experienced trauma and abuse.

Though she’s painted since childhood, Chandla didn’t Participating become a full-time artists artist from till the 2011. Friends In of the

addition to teaching workshops, commissioning work, and traveling, the Harris artist Center is also hard Art Association

work producing a series of abstract paintings as part of two solo shows: Cosmos and Beauty in

Diversity. “With [Beauty in Diversity], I intend to trigger a dialogue on the notions of beauty and

how real beauty, in fact, lay in diversity,” shares Chandla.

Classical Cast

HLB: WHAT WERE YOU LIKE AS A YOUNG ARTIST?

KC: Growing up in a traditional, conservative Asian [household], only academics were considered respectable routes

forward; all creative pursuits were expected to be treated as vocational, free-time pursuits. As a child and young adult,

I constantly daydreamed [about being] an artist and a writer and would fantasize about exhibitions and art shows,

publishing books, and being besieged by the world of ink and color. Nevertheless, I drew and painted consistently, had

my parents adorn all the walls of our house with my art, and requested art supplies and drawing books as gifts. They

considered me unstoppable and stubborn but also recognized that my creative spirit couldn’t be bottled for long.

HLB: DO YOU HAVE ANY ADVICE FOR ARTISTS JUST STARTING OUT?

KC: It takes courage, because oftentimes people think they have to be talented to begin in the first place, and that’s not

true. All you need is interest and patience to learn a new skill. It’s best to have an open mind and explore the myriad of

possibilities that creativity renders in terms of style, complexity, content, or composition. For those exploring painting

for the first time, I can’t stress enough the importance of observation and drawing skills. There’s no such thing as a bad

drawing or an ugly painting—it’s all about getting mileage on the canvas. Most importantly, stay curious and open to

your unique instinct and inner voice—it can be your best friend.

HLB: WHAT CHANGES WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE IN THE ART WORLD?

KC: I’ve noticed there aren’t too many young people who attempt to join the art community, including art or poetry

associations—almost as though it’s [reserved for] retirement. I’d like young people, even schoolchildren, to get out there

and explore their creative spirit. It’s good to have a hobby or develop a new skill at every stage of your life; in the end, it’s

truly about being centered and striking that balance. kamlikachandla.com

9 Ways Animals

Help Heal Us

by KOURTNEY JASON

About 95 percent of pet owners consider their furry friends to be

family members, and about half will buy them a birthday or holiday

present this year, according to a Harris Poll. But did you know these

relationships also have positive effects on your physical and mental

health? Read on for the myriad of ways pets help humans heal.

1 The Feeling is Mutual

“There have been studies [done proving that] the benefits are mutual, and

the relationship is essential to the well-being of both the human and the animal,”

says Wendy Goossen, CTR, director of cancer services at Marshall Medical Center.

“Studies have shown that oxytocin levels are increased in dogs when they interact

with their owner as opposed to strangers.”

2 Unconditional Love

Something that makes the human-animal relationship so easy is that it’s

not complicated, says Jeremy Ernst, DO, psychiatrist at Marshall Medical Center.

“It allows people to have nonjudgmental

love,” he continues.

3 Let’s Get Physical

Susan Garlinghouse, DVM, a

veterinarian at Goldorado Animal Hospital

in Cameron Park, says dog owners, on

average, tend to walk almost twice as

much per week as non-dog owners, and

are 54 percent more likely to meet the

recommended levels of physical exercise.

4 Allergy Alleviation

Having a family pet will benefit the

health of your kids, too. “In young families,

according to a study published in Clinical & Experimental Allergy, children exposed to pets in

their first year are less likely to suffer from allergies and eczema as adults,” Garlinghouse says.

5 Bonded for Life

According to Garlinghouse, “Studies have indicated that young adults with deep

bonds to a pet feel more connected in relationships and to their communities, and are

more likely to take on leadership roles than those without pets.”

6 No Judgement Zone

Garlinghouse says pets don’t care how you look, how much money you make, or what

kind of car you drive—they’re just happy to be with you and to have your attention. “A good

portion of these feelings of higher self-esteem probably stem from that. It’s hard not to feel

better about yourself when your dog thinks you’re terrific just the way you are,” she says.

7 Creature Comforts

And it’s not just dogs that help our well-being. “A lot of these benefits come from

caring for almost any pet,” Garlinghouse says. “In one study, stressed adults decreased

their anxiety levels when they stroked a rabbit or a turtle but not when they handled a

toy rabbit or turtle.”

8 In Sickness and in Health

Facility dogs Henry, Penny, Marty, Feather, and Glimmer are graduates of Canine

Companions for Independence who, along with child life specialists at Sutter Children’s

Center, help make life in the hospital a little less stressful by providing joy and comfort

to pediatric patients and their families. [Studies show that] pain reduction is four times

greater in children undergoing animal-assisted therapy compared to those relaxing for 15

minutes,” says Amy Medovoy, child life coordinator at Sutter Medical Center in Sacramento.

“Patients feel less lonely, less depressed, and enjoy the change in routine. For inpatient

adolescents, the presence of a dog on the unit improve outcomes by redefining the inpatient

environment and providing unconditional acceptance.”

9 Mood Booster

Forming an attachment to animals is a combination of both biological and social needs.

“Those endorphins released when we have a positive interaction with an animal just makes

you feel good,” Garlinghouse says. “No matter how rotten your day has been, no matter how

judged or criticized you might feel from people around you, no matter how lonely or isolated

you might be feeling, it’s a great feeling to come through the door and know your pets are always

delighted to see you and think you’re absolutely wonderful.”

There was no missing the girls—four young ladies in floating gowns, looking

like fairy tale princesses waiting to be whisked to a ball. Sisters Sydney,

Emma, and Kenna Warney, along with Ainseley Kay, had dressed up to

talk about Rainbow Girls, a nonprofit service organization for young

women ages 11-20. The formal attire is standard at many Rainbow

events, including meetings, a requirement the girls say they like.

Rainbow—officially the International Order of the Rainbow for Girls—was founded in

1922 to foster self-confidence and leadership skills in girls via service to their community.

Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, actress Lily Tomlin, and former Senator Olympia Snowe

have all been members.

The Folsom-based Natoma Assembly, to which the Warney sisters and Kay belong, is

the largest chapter in California with 26 members. Though originally created for daughters

of Masons, the organization now welcomes young women of all backgrounds and beliefs.

“Service is the cornerstone of Rainbow,” says Katy Warney, who, along with Suzanne Kay,

accompanied their daughters. “I love the service we provide. Kids nowadays don’t have

enough avenues to serve.”

Rainbow Girls volunteer at both state

and local levels. Each year, California

Rainbow chooses one nonprofit that all

assemblies fund-raise to support. Last year,

which concluded in April, the members

statewide contributed more than $60,000

to Families Forward, a Southern California

organization that helps empower families

who are homeless or at risk of becoming

homeless. Locally, the Natoma Assembly

performs an exhausting schedule of

activities—a partial list that includes

mulching at Folsom High School for

Community Service Day; raising money

and collecting toys for Shriners Hospitals

for Children; marching in the Folsom

Veterans Day Parade and cooking breakfast

afterward at the local Masonic lodge;

preparing monthly dinners at the lodge;

helping clean creeks; filling hundreds of

prize eggs at the Folsom Eggstravaganza;

and running craft booths at local events.

Throughout their community

service, Rainbow Girls are being trained

in leadership and self-confidence. To

that end, the girls run their meetings,

progressing through officers with such

titles as Faith, Hope, Charity, and—in

place of president—Worthy Advisor. Each

group also has a Mother Advisor and

adult advisory board who mentors and

coaches the girls, providing guidance and

support as they plan and execute projects

like membership events, charitable fundraisers,

and social activities.

Faith, hope, and charity are also

among the list of values Rainbow teaches.

Others include love, the beauty of nature,

patriotism, fidelity, and service. To help

build confidence and self-respect, the

group offers public speaking opportunities,

leadership training, and scholarships to

its members. The girls eagerly added a

few benefits of their own. “I would never

have met one of my best friends if I didn’t

have Rainbow,” Ainseley says, indicating

Sydney, who added that she liked “the

ability to serve our community and

give back.” gocarainbow.org/assembly/

home design

When it comes to protecting furniture against furry friend’s antics, it’s

imperative to have durable décor—think easy-to-clean furnishings,

area rugs, and slipcovers. Read on for the best accessories and our top

tips to keep interiors in pet-proof shape.

1

UPHOLSTERY

Both pets and humans are guilty of being

the culprits behind upholstery stains. To make

sure your new couch or favorite chair stands the

test of pets, kids, and time, stick to Fido-friendly

fabrics, like indoor/outdoor and stain-repellant

options. Crypton can endure both dirty pet tracks

and party spills and is surprisingly comfortable;

ultrasuede is also a great option, as spills can be

easily wiped up and won’t get caught in little

claws due to its weave; while leather repels

stains and dirt but could potentially be damaged

by rebellious scratching claws.

If shelling out for a pet-friendly upholstery

piece isn’t on the home improvement to-do list,

by KERRIE L. KELLY, FASID

slipcovers are easy upgrades that can help immensely when feathering your nest.

Just be sure to keep an eye out for ones that don’t require dry cleaning. Investing in

furniture with slipcovers can save you both time and hassle, keeping the focus on

enjoying your furry friends instead of keeping everyone off the white chairs.

AREA RUGS

Rugs are must-haves for every major room, tying in the

décor and creating a cozy place for pets to curl up (that isn’t on

your brand-new furniture). Opt for a pet-proof rug like an indoor/

outdoor one that’ll keep stains away. The beauty of them is their

ability to deflect dirt, spills, and stains—all while providing a

relatively comfortable feel under those paws. Great for hightraffic

areas and available in just about every pattern and color

imaginable, they double as a way to play up your interior palette.

If an indoor/outdoor one isn’t for you, stick to those with lowpiles,

small patterns, and dark colors, as they’ll make stains

and dirt harder to see and keep cute little paws and claws from

unhooking loops and destroying it come play time.

4 ACCESSORIES

Switch out seasonal accessories for ones that add pizazz

and durability. A festive throw isn’t only great for providing extra

coverage on sofas and seating areas, but it also adds a pop of

color and pattern. Sisal rope can be a great remedy for unwanted

cat scratching when wrapped around chair legs or poles; spice

it up with alternating colored rope for a two-in-one decoration.

5 LANDSCAPING

Pet-friendly furnishings aren’t the only things you need

to consider, however: Outdoor accents like cut flowers and

landscaping need to be kitty- and pup-friendly, too. Azaleas

and lilies are well-known no-nos around animals, due to

their toxicity, but many lesser-known ones are still commonly

found in backyards and public spaces. Check the ASPCA’s

poisonous plants list (aspca.org/pet-care/animal-poison-control/

toxic-and-non-toxic-plants) to make sure those beautiful flower

centerpieces won’t harm your beloved pet.

The Vet Will See You Now

by BRAD CAHOON, DVM

Acupuncture has been used in China for thousands

of years to promote healing. The process involves

inserting tiny needles into certain points of the

body known as acupoints—which can be tied to

muscle groups, nerve bundles, blood vessels, and

even organs or larger body systems—to enhance

blood and nervous system circulation, thereby

stimulating the release of anti-inflammatory and

pain-relieving hormones, which encourages the body to correct imbalances and help

heal itself.

The use of acupuncture in pets is part of an Eastern medicine approach called

Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM). The insertion of the acupuncture

needles is virtually painless for animals, and many owners find their pets become

relaxed or even sleepy when the needles are in place. However, some human

acupuncture patients have noted feelings such as tingling or numbness during

treatments, so animals may show small amounts of discomfort from these new

sensations during initial treatments. Some of the issues that can be treated and

managed with TCVM include:

• Musculoskeletal conditions

• Neurological disorders

• Respiratory disorders

Unlike some medical treatments, there’s a very low risk of

side effects from TCVM; however, acupuncture should always be

performed by a certified veterinary acupuncturist.

There’s an explosion

in the use of

cannabis-related

products in the

world. While we’ve

all been reading

stories regarding

the growth of the cannabis industry

industry has been similarly impactful.

Examples of pet products containing CBD

include treats, oils, CBD-infused honey,

capsules, salves, and even itch-reducing

shampoos; and the results thus far have

been truly astonishing. As with any other pet

supplement, you may wish to seek the input

of your veterinarian before introducing

CBD into your pet’s holistic regimen.

Additionally, it’s recommended that

pets receive only products created in

human-grade facilities.

HOT WEATHER SAFETY TIPS

FOR DOGS by MICHAEL HARRISON

Dogs are susceptible to heat-related

injuries just like humans, which is why

we need to be aware of the indicators of

overheating including excessive panting

or difficulty breathing, increased heart or

respiratory rate, drooling, glazed eyes, and

lethargy or wobbly feet when standing.

Here are some preventative measures you

can take to keep your pets safe during the

hot summer months.

»»

Always have fresh clean water ready for

Fido. Dogs can get dehydrated quickly if

they’re in the heat for too long.

»»

Make sure they have plenty of shade if

left outside for the day. Bring your dog

inside during extreme heat.

»»

Provide frequent breaks while playing

hard or if exposed to hot temps for

longer periods of time.

»»

Never leave a dog in a hot vehicle.

Consider putting a note on the

dashboard to remind you that your dog

is in the car so you won’t forget to take

them out.

»»

Dogs with pushed-in faces or shorter

muzzles have a harder time breathing

and therefore have a harder time

cooling themselves down; watch extra

closely for signs of heat exhaustion.

»»

Dogs sweat but not much—they mainly

sweat from their pads. Most of their

heat is released by panting and if they

breathe very hot air they have difficulty

cooling down. Note: Dogs that are lower

to the ground tend to heat up more

quickly from the radiant heat.

»»

Dogs’ paws a can be sensitive to hot

surfaces. Asphalt tends to get the

hottest, so if you see your dog “tap

dancing” their paws are hot. Get them

moving or get under the shade. Try to

exercise them in the earlier hours of the

day.

»»

Look for a dog-approved sunscreen

that’s usually for their noses.

»»

It is not recommended to shave dogs

since their fur protects them from the

UV rays.

Top Dogs by Alyssa Mielke

Every dog has its day, but the following pups and their

people are doing big things day in, day out.

Richard Hunter and Klinger photos by Menka Belgal.

Delilah Jane

“Delilah Jane is almost 10 years

old and lives in Folsom. She has

white, silky long hair that has to

be brushed all the time, which is a

good thing since being brushed is

her favorite pasttime (along with

eating and watching birds from

Eevee

“Eevee loves hot dogs and will

growl-talk when she’s happy and/

for the Blind. With assistance

from the nonprofit’s CEO,

Thomas Panek, Hunter helped

create a special training

program for running guide

dogs. Hunter says Klinger’s

success has “paved the way

for other blind runners to

be partnered with running

guide dogs across the U.S.”

proudest of his dog.

offers Hunter a new

Richard Hunter and Klinger

Five-year-old Klinger is the first-ever

certified dual purpose running guide

dog in the U.S. Add to that the bond he

has with his owner, Richard Hunter, and

the dog is one of a kind.

Hunter, an avid runner and former

commissioned Marine officer, lost

much of his sight due to retinitis

pigmentosa, but his blindness hasn’t

stopped him from achieving a long list

of accomplishments—some of which

include running the Boston Marathon

multiple times, being the second blind

American runner to complete a 100-

mile endurance run, and receiving the

Sacramento Running Association’s 2017

Community Runner of the Year Award.

After he was struck by a car while

riding his tandem bicycle and seriously

injured, Hunter’s middle daughter

encouraged him to get a guide dog.

around patients with fur allergies.

The four-year old pup has been

with Goossen since he was nine

weeks old, when she and Max

bonded especially well at one

of Goossen’s visits to Brasken

Labradoodles in San Luis Obispo.

Now, Max visits the patients each

day to make sure they feel loved

and supported. Greeting the

people who come through the

door is his

favorite thing

to do, but he

also loves to

hang out with

the patients

receiving treatment.

Wendy Goossen and Max

There’s just something about

seeing a large, mocha-colored

Labradoodle bounding down

a medical center hallway

that brightens up the whole

atmosphere. At Marshall Medical

Center in Placerville, Max raises

the spirits of each patient fighting

cancer when he comes to work

with his owner, Cancer Resource

Center Director Wendy Goossen.

For many patients, the treatment

they receive is part medication and

part love from the soft dog. “I love

that Max makes so many [patients]

smile. It really makes their day to

have someone to hug,” Goossen

says.

Thanks to initial funding from

Wells Fargo and supplemental

and Their

Officer Gage Lawley and Eros

Don’t let Eros’ dashing good looks deceive you. This fierce K-9 officer on the Roseville Police

Department loves tug-of-war, chicken, and justice. The handsome sable colored dog is originally

from Germany and was

sent to Canada where he was

unfortunately injured.

In August 2010, Eros was

transferred to California and

paired with his owner, Officer

Gage Lawley, where he

underwent what is equivilent

to the police academy for

dogs—a 12-week intensive

training session. In addition

to initial certification, each

K-9 team trains two days a

month with other K-9 units

in the region to stay sharp in

the field.

“Eros is always wanting to

work,” Officer Lawley says,

and he appreciates that.

The canine is cross-trained

in patrol and narcotics

detection, which means

he works on a patrol team

and also detects narcotics

in buildings, vehicles, open

areas, and packages. Eros’

position was funded by drug

dog is giving back by being

occasion, Officer Lawley

and Eros go to schools for

time, Eros is a huge hit.

Officer Lawley says what

makes him most proud of

the German shepherd is his

ability “to be a ferocious,

hardworking K-9, then go to

a demonstration at a school

and become a loving, regular

dog.” Because of this, the dog

is a reliable worker and even

better pet. Officer Lawley could not have asked for a more

perfect fit to his K-9 team.

Senior Center Activities for All by TARA MENDANHA

Gilmore Senior Center


Aging is not lost youth,” said writer and activist Betty

Friedan, “but a new stage of opportunity and

strength.” These golden years are most apparent

at our region’s vibrant senior centers that are

constantly bustling with activity. Research has

shown that adults can delay the onset of chronic

disease and improve their physical, social, spiritual, emotional,

mental, and economic well-being through participation at these

centers. If you’re looking to find out more, consider the following

neighborhood locales.

Senior LIFE Center of Loomis was established as an activity of

Soroptimist International of Rocklin and Loomis where seniors can

enjoy leisure, informative, and social activities surrounded by peers.

Challenge the mind, body, and spirit with table games, quilting, tai

chi, yoga, Zumba, performers, lectures, field trips, conversation, and more. Those over age

55 are welcome and can even enjoy a nutritious lunch. 6414 Brace Road, Loomis, 916-660-0543,

Back Bistro

Shrimp and Polenta

Polished Plates with Pizzazz

by LORN RANDALL // photos by DANTE FONTANA

Longtime Folsom favorite Back Bistro recently made the

leap from its cozy, neighborhood location to the glitz

and glamour of a 4,500-square-foot destination at the

Palladio. Featuring an impressive craft cocktail bar

that commands attention as soon as you enter, the

restaurant also serves up the same quality fare that

made loyal fans of its original customers—with a few

new dishes and a boutique wine selection.

I started with the sautéed artichoke hearts, whose

presentation was a bit of a surprise, as it’s served “bruschetta style”—

topped with olives, fennel confit, capers, roasted garlic, and the namesake

artichoke hearts over grilled French bread. The real plot twist, however,

was the white wine cream sauce the sliced baguettes were perched atop—a

very creative and tasty application, indeed.

Next came the warm arugula salad with pancetta, quinoa, red onions,

toasted almonds, and shaved Parmesan. The balsamic dressing was applied

sparingly (thank you), and the tasty, texture-rich toppings were the perfect

pairing to the peppery baby arugula.

As I ordered “steak and potatoes,” the server asked if I wanted to “surf

and turf” it. He barely got the words out of his mouth when I hit him with

a resounding “yes!” The resulting plate featured grilled steak over fondant

potatoes and garlic aioli with a skewered shrimp crowning each of the three

brochettes. Not surprisingly, this is one of Back Bistro's most requested small

plates, and if you’re just looking for a quick bite, there’s plenty of protein here

to hold you over.

Warm Arugula Salad

Between this and the other two starters, I was content, but all willpower went

out the window when I saw the bistro’s version of shrimp and grits. Ever since ordering and falling in

love with the dish at Luke in New Orleans, I’m tempted to try it everywhere. Whether it’s breakfast

(with a poached egg), lunch, or dinner, I’m a devout fan, and Back’s entry hit the mark. The option here

featured an Italian twist (creamy polenta in lieu of grits) but still boasted some of the NOLA traditions

(andouille sausage and roasted tomatoes).

I’m sure I didn’t need dessert at this point, but when a menu offers “The Famous Triple Pot de Crème,”

how can you not find out if it lives up to its nom de plume? After all, it’s French pudding…right? You’ll

have to stop by Back Bistro and see for yourself (spoiler alert: My “pot” was spotless).

Falafel Corner // For just a short time now, Falafel Corner has been serving Folsom residents mouthwatering, made-from-scratch

Mediterranean dishes with a side of friendly service. Upon entering, you’re instantly hit with the enticing aromas of spices and fresh local veggies.

Thanks to the warm atmosphere and amiable employees, I instantly felt at ease and ready to dive into their intriguing menu. The eatery is unique

in that they cater to every customer’s needs—from offering high-quality zabiha ingredients (including premium, corn-fed Harris Ranch beef) to

classic and familiar dishes (burgers, curly fries, and quesadillas), as well as authentic Mediterranean cuisine that runs the gamut from gyros to

their namesake falafel. For my inaugural visit, I tried the Combo Platter and was instantly transported to foodie heaven. The plate came with a

heavy helping of protein (perfectly seasoned chicken and tender, rotisserie cooked then grilled lamb/beef) as well as buttery rice pilaf, a fresh

Greek salata, house-made hummus, pita bread, and tangy tzatziki sauce that had my mouth burning but begging for more. The sheer amount of

food wasn't the only thing that was impressive about this dish, however; the way that all the flavors—from the rice, meat, and the sauces—melded

together was truly an experience that everyone needs to understand firsthand. Now that I know what Falafel Corner is capable of, I’ll be back to

try more of their mouthwatering menu. 2690 East Bidwell Street, Suite 300, Folsom, 916-817-1184, falafelcorner.us/folsom.

THE HOT COOL LIST

Ice Cream!

6 Best Shops compiled by STYLE STAFFERS // photos by DANTE FONTANA

Summer and ice cream seem to be synonymous; it really is the perfect way to beat the heat. Whether you

prefer to keep it classic with vanilla or favor funky flavors, we have the scoop on what’s good here in our

’hood. In no particular order…

“The Niche Ice Cream in Folsom sells fresh-made Gunther’s ice

cream sandwiched inside warm donuts and macarons, or simply scooped

into a cone or cup. Though all of their offerings are sweet (pun intended)—

and they have a rainbow of unique, regularly rotating flavors to pick from—

my go-to is their Taro Macaron Sandwich. It combines my two

favorite food groups—cookies and ice cream—and is pretty much as good

as it gets in the land of frozen favorites.” thenicheicecream.com

The Niche Ice Cream

“Hangman’s Tree Ice Cream Saloon in Placerville

scoops up old-fashioned soda shop-style frozen

delights like malts and milkshakes in lovingly restored

surrounds that include vintage tables and chairs, original 1880s

floors, and a mural from 1945. I typically take a trip down

memory lane with their Banana Split. Nothing says nostalgia

like a spoonful each of vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry ice

cream alongside hot fudge, strawberry sauce, whipped cream, nuts,

and a perfectly ripe banana. After an afternoon strolling historic Main

Street, it’s the cherry on top.” hangmanstree.com

Sweet Dozen Cones

“For those seeking unique, Italian-style gelato in wild, ever-changing

flavors—all crafted using local, seasonal produce and time-honored,

artisanal techniques—Zia’s Italian Caffe and Gelato Bar in

the El Dorado Hills Town Center is the perfezionare place. Though the

dairy-based gelato (ice cream’s richer, silkier sister) is hard to resist, the

lactose-intolerant side of me typically selects a scoop, or three, of their

pink grapefruit lemonade and raspberry rosé Sorbetto (flavors change

seasonally) in a house-made Waffle Cone. Some might scream for ice

cream, but I scream for sorbetto!” ziasgelato.com

“Honey Treat Yogurt has been my family’s go-to spot for soft serve

since before I could walk, and it’s right in the middle of Roseville’s primo

shopping spots, so it’s a great pick-me-up while out and about. My favorite

thing to order is their Fudgesicle frozen yogurt piled high with Gummy

Bears and Rainbow Sprinkles. The best part? The prices are

reasonable and the staff is sweet. In a world of ‘pay per ounce’ ice cream,

it’s literally and figuratively refreshing.” 916-781-3047

“For me, The Parlor Ice Cream Puffs in Roseville will win, hands

down, every time. The ice cream by itself is deliciously creamy, sweet, and

heavenly, but then you put it inside of a warm donut and the whole world

just sings at the beauty of it. For the ultimate sandwich, try the namesake

Ice Cream Puff with half 50 Shades of Earl Grey and half

Midnight in Paris ice cream inside one of their freshly made glazed

donuts with a dusting of powdered sugar perfection. Pro tip: On Tuesdays,

puffs are just $2.95. Your waistline might not be happy, but your wallet will

be!” theparloricecream.com

“Forget cardboard-tasting cake cones. At Sweet Dozen Cones in

Historic Folsom, they offer fresh-baked Hungarian-inspired ‘chimney’

cones that are dusted with cinnamon and sugar and reminiscent of a

churro. I’ve sampled almost every offering and keep coming back to

the Cereal N’ Milk that features soft-serve vanilla gelato with Fruity

Pebbles in said cone. Talk about the breakfast (and dessert) of champions.”

OVERALL RATING is the average score (out of 5) compiled by Style staff tasters. Ratings should be taken with a

grain of salt, as we are by no means “experts”—just hard-working employees who enjoy imbibing.

While Crooked Lane, located in Auburn, offers

a vast selection of German lagers, West Coast

and New England-style IPAs, and barrel-aged

sours and ales, their 1-2 Punch is particularly

palatable. The New England-inspired IPA

offers big tropical aromas, a moderate ABV,

and an unbelievably juicy

flavor that’s exactly what

your summer barbecue is

missing. Peach, mango,

and tropical hops give

it a bright, bold flavor

that pairs nicely with

beef and tangy pickled

cucumbers. With its clean

finish and soft bitterness, it’s

the ideal summertime sip.
