Morning, readers!

If you're an animal lover like we are, you're gonna love this issue, our

annual ode to all things pet-related. Need I say more?

In other news: A local woman drums up support for a children's museum

downtown; Chico State Prez Paul Zingg is back in office and getting a

raise; Medicare turns 50 and a downtown hotspot prepares to shift gears.

Hug your pet!

Until next week,
