Keep Pets out of the Heat - Sonoma County

It’s heating up in the North Bay & PetCare Veterinary Hospital urges you to keep your pets out of the heat.

Most people know not to leave their pets in a hot car; however, one of the most common cases they see is over exertion in the heat.

Dogs can only release heat through panting & through their paws.

Please remember to only exercise your pets for short periods during the cooler morning & evening hours.

And don’t assume they’ll stop when they’re too hot - pets simply don’t know their limits.
Please remember that heat stroke is often fatal. If you suspect heat stroke, contact your veterinarian immediately.

RAIN: A Tribute to the Beatles - Wells Fargo Center for the Arts

Tickets go on sale today at 12/Noon.

Performing the full range of The Beatles' discography live onstage, including the most complex & challenging songs that The Beatles themselves recorded in the studio but never performed for an audience. In addition to the updated sets featuring brand new LED, High-Definition screens & multimedia content, new songs have also been included with the launch of the 2014-2015 Tour. Together longer than The Beatles, RAIN has mastered every song, gesture & nuance of the legendary foursome, delivering a totally live, note-for-note performance that’s as infectious as it is transporting. From the early hits to later classics (“I Want To Hold Your Hand,” “Hard Day’s Night,” “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band,” “Let It Be,” “Come Together,” “Hey Jude” & more), this adoring tribute will take you back to a time when all you needed was love & a little help from your friends in a performance the Los Angeles Times calls, “A 2-hour homage to pop music’s most brilliant gem.”
