Animal shelters need help year round. Whether it’s with adoptions, volunteering or donations, it’s always a good time to assist rescues. August 20, 2017 is National Homeless Animal Day, so let’s discuss some ways that you can be a big help to the homeless animals in your area and around the world.
For a long time now I’ve been wanting to travel with Wynston. You know, just hit the road and see where it takes us. I want to explore the country, write about it and enjoy every second with my son. Well folks, it’s happening. Instead of continuing to put it off, I decided to just do it! My life has been about doing what I love and taking risks, so this time is no different. On August 31st I head out with Wynston for our first road trip – just the two of us! We’re going to see some of the Southwest. Destinations: New Mexico and Texas.
If you’re reading this blog post, you probably already spoil your dog. Rather than admit to my dogs being spoiled, I prefer to say they are “well-loved.” I mean, makes sense, yeah? No? Okay, well it makes me feel better about the fact that my life entirely revolves around my fur kids. But the fact of the matter is, today is Spoil Your Dog Day! Here are a handful of super simple ways that you can spoil your dog on this special day.
Everyone knows someone who has been affected by the dreaded “C” word. Cancer destroys families of loved ones all too often, and although it seems like we get closer to a cure every day, cancer is still breaking hearts on an all-too-regular basis. When I speak of the heartbreak, it isn’t specific to people. Pets suffer from cancer too, but technology is now allowing veterinarians to fight more types of cancer head on. Earlier this year I had the pleasure of touring the PetCure Oncology center in Arizona. Did you know that there’s an entire program dedicated to treating cancer in your dogs and cats? PetCure Oncology partners with specialty veterinary practices across the country to offer stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS), and although it’s a fairly new concept for pets, it’s proven effective in saving lives.
Around the US, school aged kids are getting back to the learning grind. In Arizona, year round schools are already back in session (yay for quieter shopping during the day!). For a lot of households, dogs and cats are having to get used to the kids being out of the house all day once more, which can sometimes be a difficult transition. So why not make it a fun, learning experience for our dogs? I personally don’t have children, but I’m using this time to get back to the basics. It’s back to school for dogs; let’s touch on training and tasks you can do with your dogs to signify a new school year. Pups need school supplies too, so enter to win three super fun school themed toys!
