Pet of the Month April 2018

April 2018 Pet of the Month

NAMES:  Snickers and Oreo

BREEDS:  Chihuahua/Dachshund mix and Border Collie

AGES:  2 years and 1 year

GENDER:  Both Males 

ADOPTION FEE:  $100 – Includes two $40 vouchers to use towards their neuter. It also includes current vaccines and goodie bags.

HISTORY:  These dogs must be adopted together because of the close bond they have with one another. The former owner was relocating and couldn’t continue to care for them. Snickers is very calm for a Chihuahua and rarely barks. Oreo is more active and takes a minute to warm up to people but becomes very loving after that, offering human-like hugs. This pair can be very playful and would be fine around children older than 6.

pet of the month march 01

March 2018 Pet of the Month

NAME:  Neko

BREED:  Pit Bull Mix

AGE:  1 year, 2 months

GENDER:  Male

ADOPTION FEE:  $85 – Includes a $40 voucher to use towards his neuter. It also includes current vaccines and goodie bag. He will be available on March 8th

HISTORY:  Neko is a sweet boy with a ton of energy and would fit well with someone with experience with his breed. A wooden or vinyl fenced yard would be ideal so he can run around and burn off all that excess energy. He’s a ball of muscle and will chase a ball until your arm wears out, not his enthusiasm. He walks well on a leash once the initial excitement of going for a walk wears off. He doesn’t play well with cats and needs a slower introduction to other dogs but knows the sit

The Scoop on Septic Systems

If there’s one thing everyone loves talking about (not really), it’s the nitty-gritty of septic tanks. In Ogden Valley and other rural locations, it’s a very real part of life and one that homeowners have to deal with every three to five years when it’s time to address possible service issues with your sewer system. In this blog, we’d like to dig into the issue a little deeper.

For those who are unaware, here are the basics. A septic system is an underground wastewater treatment structure, commonly used in rural areas without centralized sewer systems. These systems use a combination of nature and proven technology to treat wastewater from household plumbing produced by bathrooms, kitchen drains, and laundry.

Buying a Home vs Building a Home

Purchasing a home is one of the most important and lasting decisions most people will make in their lifetimes, and probably the most expensive. Many buyers usually spend lots of time and energy searching for or designing "the perfect home" before they actually ink the deal on the dotted line. If buyers are doing it properly, they will consider all factors in their decisions, including location, market trends, price, HOA fees, taxes, property conditions and financing. There are usually a list of “must haves” and a list of “wants” that go into the house hunt. With that in mind, there are usually two ways to go about finding a new home: whether to buy an existing home, or to build a new home. Here are a few of the

JuJu’s Kitchen Serves up Good Home Cooking

If there’s one thing Julie Cady would love, it’s to have customers feel as if they were being fed at home by their grandmothers when they dine at JuJu’s Kitchen and Bake Shop in Eden.

Cady has worked in the Ogden Valley for years and before opening up the delightful shop, she worked there as a manager under the name Perks Village Bakery. Julie and her husband Pat took over ownership in May of 2016 and have been serving locals and travelers alike ever since.

“I really love the area and thought it would be a great way to slow down and do something I love, which is making great, homemade food that makes people feel good,” Cady said. “I can’t say enough about the people who have come so often and
