Dogs and Star Athletes

Northborough Patch looked around online to see what you're talking about and what's new in town.

Social Media Saturday is Northborough Patch's turn to look at what you're saying on the Internet. We're online, and that means we're online. A lot. All day. We look around, and we hope you're looking at us, too. 

Each week, we'll take a look at the interaction we've had with our readers as well as highlight questions, comments and thoughts you've posted on Facebook, Twitter and other media outlets throughout the week. You're out there and we're looking. We'll also point you in the direction of some new, or interesting, or both, pages you may not have heard about.

Highlights of the Week

Right now, 527 fans like us on Facebook and we have 386 followers on Twitter.

Do you love dogs? The Northboro Canine Rehabiliation Center has added a whole slew of photos to its Facebook page. The Center has many services geared toward keeping your dog as healthy and happy as possible. The latest photos have been added to the "Floor Exercise," "Swedish Massage" and "Hydrotherapy" albums on the page. Floor exercises are designed for dogs who are post-surgical or injured. Here is an example of how the Center borrows human physical therapy techniques such as forcing the dog to put weight on his affected leg to promote healing of tissues. Massage increases blood flow to the muscles to relieve pain and has other benefits as well. Hydrotherapy involves the dogs going into a small swimming pool. Here, they experience the support of the water and it greatly reduces the weight on their legs. 

is ready for Thanksgiving! Turkey cake pops just went on sale. See a photo of one on its Facebook page. Wait...what's a cake pop exactly? If you haven't heard of them, it is because they are a fairly new phenomenon. They are kind of like a cupcake, sort of like a lollipop and a little bit like a bonbon. Still confused? It's a ball of cake on a stick covered with a candy coating and edible decorations! Blogger Angie Dudley came up with the idea while experimenting with baking in her kitchen. Before she knew it, she was invited onto The Martha Stewart Show in the spring of 2008. Dudley published a book in 2010 that is available on Amazon.

Teamworks Northborough is star-studded! On its Facebook page, the facility congratulates recent triumphs of staff members. Carlos Fernandes, one of the facility's adult Indoor Soccer League (ISL) officials, has been chosen as the "ISL Official of the Year." Also, two staff members, Nikki Scott and Danielle Clifford have been named to the Massachusetts State Collegiate Athletic Conference (MASCAC)Their accomplishments did not stop there though. Clifford was also named MASCAC Women's Soccer Player of the Year heading her league in the squad. Scott has earned first-team Capital One All-District Academic Honors and was nominated for All-America consideration.

How Tweet It Is
