Quit if you can, try if you can't - Johnny Jackson

One man is a new grandfather, willing to do about any silly thing with his young granddaughters. Occasionally, he wakes up from a nap with a little lip gloss and rouge painted on no particular part of his face. Sometimes he pretends to drink tea, kneeling down to a small orderly table of plastic kitchen ware. He even takes his granddaughters for afternoon joyrides on his riding lawn mower.

Pets of the Week

Josie is a one-year-old, tortie domestic medium-hair. She has been spayed and all vaccinations are current. Josie was originally abandoned at the humane society shelter, left in a box at the front door. She was adopted very quickly and went into a home with another cat already living there. After just a few months, Josie's new mom returned Josie because the other cat was refusing to accept Josie. Josie is a very friendly cat, and has done well with other cats living at the humane society. For more information, please call Clayton County Humane Society at (770) 471-9436. Visit to see other animals available for adoption.
