Confessions of a Carolina Girl...
Ever wonder why folks get so passionate about their alma mater?  Heather Brown gives us 10 reasons she bleeds Carolina blue.

"2. This one is an easy one…but every Carolina blue blood has at least one child or animal named for something Carolina-related. Speaking of animals, there is this one rat that lives in Durham that all Carolina blue-blooded alumni and fans alike detest. Is it his mouth? Or lack of couth after losing that leads him to not being gracious enough to properly shake the hands of his opponents? Or his enduring hugs to Wojo, Danny Ferry, Laettner or Bobby Hurley?  Or let us not forget his defiant defence of the “tripper”  Grayson Allen?  I am not for sure…but I can tell you “dadgummit” all of us love to hate K-Rat."

Featured Pull at Your Heart Strings

Only the best boys get to be office dogs for the day.

Eddie (A41332701) is available for adoption. He’s a 6 month old pit bull mix who looks like a miniature Mastiff! He currently weighs 30 pounds and seems like he’s close to being done growing. Eddie gets along great with other dogs, has perfect manners with people and was unphased by cats in a nearby cage. Eddie gets restless when he needs to go outside and hasn’t had any accidents while in the office.

Eddie’s adoption fee is $90 and covers his neuter surgery, heartworm test, microchip and vaccines.
