Cagney is a young male tuxedo who has an amazing personality.  He is outgoing and loving, and loves to play.  He came to us very hurt.  He had surgery to save his back leg, and his tail was mostly gone.  He has recovered fully, but should be in a home without dogs.  His little corkscrew tail is the cutest thing ever.  He is such a bundle of fun, always curious, and the first to check out any new toy.  He is truly a beautiful boy inside and out.

 Kilmer, Newhouse Announce Bipartisan Civility Tour

Meeting in both congressional districts next week, congressmen to start conversation about civility

 WASHINGTON, D.C. –Rep. Derek Kilmer (D-WA-06) and Rep. Newhouse (R-WA-04) issued a joint statement announcing a bipartisan Civility and Respect Tour next week with events in central and western Washington. Reps. Newhouse and Kilmer together joined the Congressional Civility and Respect Caucus, which encourages all Members of Congress to act with civility and respect in their political discourse. As part of the tour, the representatives will attend dialogues at WSU Tri-Cities and University of Washington Tacoma campuses, tour businesses, and meet with community groups to hear about their work and learn how Washingtonians promote civility and respect in their own lives.

 Rep. Newhouse and Rep. Kilmer: “We believe it’s possible to disagree on the issues without being disagreeable. With so much national attention on partisanship, we want to start a respectful conversation with Washingtonians about the things we have in common and the areas where we need to work harder to seek out common ground.”

 At the dialogues, the representatives will have a conversation with the audience about how to better incorporate civility into daily life, and then ask the audience to join them in a pledge to promote civility within their community.
