As a career journalist and EJ advocate, I see community-based media like the Alhambra Source as crucial to democracy and equality.

I support Alhambra Source as often as I can because I believe a free and independent press is vital to the democratic process. No other news outlet with high journalistic standards consistently covers the stories and issues that matter to our community.

Such a valuable source of what’s happening in city where we live. Objective reporting that informs us and allows us to come to our own conclusions.

Where dogs dare to roam

Picture Alhambra: Portraits of the City of Alhambra and its people.

Until City Council members determine a designated dog park, Alhambra canines are out of luck.

The photo: When Cliff Thenard’s dog, Chase, came home from surgery, he managed to puppy-dog his way onto the couch while his master was in the middle of a video game session.

“I was playing Skyrim at the time and he looked at me with a sad puppy dog face as he slowly tried to climb up onto the couch,” said Thenard, who has a strict no-dog-on-couch policy.

“He laid down beside me, resting his head and bandaged paw on my lap as I continued to play. I later noticed that my camera was sitting nearby and took a couple of shots.”

The photographer: Cliff Thenard and Chase live in nearby South Pasadena, though they sometimes frequent Alhambra Park or the Arroyo Seco Park bordering Highland Park.

  1. Julie's patches are amazing! Of course I can only speak for the human patches, but I love that there are animal patches too

  2. Hi Cliff… I have acupuncture patches to help alleviate your dog’s pain from the surgery…. 🙂
