The tribal administration has three departments: Family Activities, Head Start, and Finance. James Collins is the tribal administrator, the family activities director is Alena Dondero, the Head Start director is Johanna Leal, and Leann Anguiano is the finance manager. [9] Economic development and enterprises [ edit ] The tribe owns and operates the Mono Wind Casino and Broken Arrow Restaurant in Auberry. [11] They operate BSR Fuel Distribution in Auberry.

BSR fuel distribution practices nation-to-nation trade and thus strengthens tribal relationships. It allows tribes and rancherias to buy fuel products and transact directly with one sovereign Native American government to another. This form of trade prevents state interference and thus not prevents having to pay state taxes on fuel products. [13] Trading with other tribes helps Big Sandy Rancheria keep their tax revenue funds for their own reservation and people. The funds are used to help the community with programs such as healthcare/medical, elder care, native education programs, hardship funds, housing, and the tribal's infrastructure. [14] The programs and services that Big Sandy Rancheria offers their tribal members are to help them grow and achieve self-sufficiency.

There’s a pup out there for just about every personality, and these lovable lap dogs are perfect for anyone who’s looking to add a snuggle bug to their family! Whether you’d prefer a social butterfly by day and a couch potato by night, a canine who’s content to live in an apartment, or a four-legged friend for the kids, there’s a petite pup on this list who’d make a wonderful companion. Based on information from the American Kennel Club website (and in no particular order), here are 11 pint-sized breeds that love being lap dogs. (Thinking about adopting a pooch of a certain breed? Don’t forget to check out your local shelters and rescues!) 1. These brown-eyed beauties are known for their gentle, affectionate dispositions and soft, silky coats. This, plus their small statures, make them wonderful lap-sized companions for family members of all ages. The regal-looking pups were favorites of King Charles I and King Charles II in the 17th century, and although they’re beautiful, they still love to go out and play every once in awhile!

According to the AKC, these calm companions are just as happy with homebodies as they are with more active owners.

One of the tiniest pooches around, Chihuahuas love being in the laps of their favorite humans! These miniature pups have big personalities, and fans of the breed love their trademark sass. Although Chihuahuas can fit in purses, owners need to remember that they’re still dogs that love to go on walks and play! What’s more, if they’re coddled too much by their humans, they may end up taking on a guard dog role and developing “Napoleon Syndrome.” Of course, this doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy lots of cuddle time on the couch; it’s all about balance! Unfortunately, the Chihuahua’s popularity has a downside.
