    The holiday frenzy should be receding by now and you’ll have time to pause and reflect before beginning the new year. Consider this page a bit of whimsy, a chance to sit back and laugh a little. Now spend some time trying to find Cutie, a little dog with a big heart. She’s already helped raise almost $30,000 to provide extraordinary veterinary care for canines, like her, that found new homes through the Lucas County Dog Warden.

    A hint: Cutie is hiding amongst the Toledo notables, past and present, whom we’ve placed in and around the skating rink at the Shops at Fallen Timbers.
