Razor - Contented Critters
Razor is a male Chow-Lab mix. He has been with us since his owner died. He is a goofball. Loves all people, but doesn't feel the same about other dogs or rodents. He is playful and one of the staff favorites.

What do Minnesotans like in the summertime?

Lots of things.  Many involving lakes, dogs and ... beer.

So if something comes along that threatens those things ... well, them's fightin' words.

They'd love a nice place to stay while they're passing through the Northland, and a few good meals.  But you don't need an Airbnb listing; just a nice patch of milkweed. And any other questions you might have can be answered at the 3rd Annual Duluth Monarch Festival.

Kathy McTavish

There is still time to see Chance, an art experience created by local composer and media artist Kathy McTavish. Chance is a thought-provoking, experiential installation at the UMD Tweed Museum's Sax Brothers' Gallery, up through the summer. It is a self creating, coded, digital and audio installation, ever-changing through the hours of the day and the seasons of the year. To get the full affect of the work, you want to visit multiple times as no two days of the exhibit are the same.
