(WWBT) - Hopefully you got the chance to spend some time outside this weekend because the weather has been GREAT! For all of you Fall lovers out there, we can bet you definitely enjoyed it! It means your season is coming! Pumpkin spice products have already been released for the year, so it seems fitting.

Living His Best Life

Bebe, a dog with terminal cancer at Richmond Animal League, got to spend a day eating ice cream and treats, and playing with special toys. While he only has less than two years to live, RAL is working to make those the best years for him.

We wanted to share a Bebe update with you this Friday ❤️ Yesterday, wanting to do something special for this sweet boy...

Fresh Haircut

A barbershop in Henrico’s West End is making sure your kids head back-to-school with fresh and free haircuts. The owner of the shop says he does this every year to celebrate the kids going back to school. Awesome!

Easing Fears

Getting anyone excited for the dentist can be a difficult task, but for a child, it can be their worst fear. But a Henrico dentist is trying to ease those fears for children with a new book called “A Caterpillar at the Dentist."
