Cover Pooch
I confess the dsm covers with dog photos are some of my favorites. On the July/August cover, the transparent orange bowl makes the shot! I loved reading the rescue stories inside the issue, especially their happy endings. Two paws up!

Thank you for shining a bright light on the stories of rescue pups in the July/August issue. Des Moines is lucky to be represented by a magazine that uses its reach to tell compelling stories as well as showcase the beauty of our community.

Beautiful Venue
What an awesome evening and unveiling event (for the July/August issue). Bravo to dsm for another superb issue and to the Greater Des Moines Botanical Garden for providing a beautiful venue. I’m proud to live in Des Moines!

Rescue Chihuahuas and brother and sister Ozzie and Harriet react favorably—we think—to their photo in the July/August issue of dsm.
