Hello! Dr. Miele will be taking a long weekend, and will be out of the office from Saturday, May 26th through Monday, May 28th (Memorial Day).

Dr. Miele will resume regular appointment hours at Little Creek Veterinary Clinic on Tuesday, May 29th. Call 757-583-2619 to schedule your pet’s appointment. Some openings are still available this week on Friday.

Emergency care for your pets is provided by Blue Pearl in Virginia Beach. Call 757-499-5463 if your pet parties a little too hard this weekend.

And what will you be doing with your time off? We’ve got some ideas for you:

  1. Grab a frozen treat at Penguin’s Snoballs (in front of the Roosevelt Shopping Center on East Little Creek Road).
  2. Let your inner child out to play at the St. Pius X Parish & School Carnival — open to everyone! (At the corner of Halprin and East Little Creek Road).
  3. Go see Solo: A Star Wars Story. No, it’s not Harrison Ford “CGI’d” to look 1/3rd his age. Go see it anyway.
  4. Prefer your entertainment on-stage? Grab tickets to the Sondheim musical “A Little Night Music,” now showing at The Little Theatre of Norfolk.
  5. Take in the awe-inspiring wonders of Lantern Asia by night, only at the Norfolk Botanical Garden.
  6. Visit the Hampton National Cemetery and remember the fallen, including those who died far from home.

Therapy dogs are known to be a great help to children who are nervous about reading in front of adults. If you don’t have a dog at home (or even a willing cat), we have good news: Norfolk Public Libraries are on board with therapy dogs to help children read.

Tales to Tails is available at three branches in Norfolk: Barron F. Black Branch (E. Tanners Creek Dr.), Blyden Branch (E. Princess Anne Rd.), and Slover Library (E. Plume St.)

Visit NorfolkPublicLibrary.org for a full list of classes and registration forms.
