We were out and about on errands today and figured we'd end the trip with a supermarket run for some barbecue fixings. We wound up at the Chestnut Hill Star, and, yeesh, was that place empty.

The Massachusetts Appeals Court ruled today that the owners of a German Shepherd have to pay the $8,000 veterinary bill incurred by the owners of the tiny bichon frise their pet ripped up in Newton in 2008.
