Apparently, the Sundance Channel made the most of its trip to Dallas: Last week on its Big Ideas for a Small Planet series, it featured the Current Energy store on Knox Street. Tonight, during an episode devoted to the "Animals," the show takes a trip to the recently opened Dallas Animal Services and Adoption Center on Westmoreland Road. A sneak peek at the puppies below. --Robert Wilonsky
Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
