A Spot for Dogs

by Anne Blue  photography by Phil Grout Like kids let out for recess, a trio of dogs chase each other around the open floor of The Maryland Dog Spot, happy to play in the vast indoor space that provides plenty of room to stretch their legs.

Hair or Bare

Body hair fashion trends range from no hair below to the au naturel by Jeffrey B.

A trained medical aesthetician, Haggerty employs a Vairiable Pulsed Light system for LHR services. VPL is a safe and non-invasive procedure which utilizes light energy to remove hair and to treat skin imperfections. While some clients experience mild discomfort during treatment, contrary to misconceptions, LHR is not super painful, she said. Haggerty also provides a variety of aesthetic treatments,...
