Just days after Wynston’s attack, we headed to Tempe Beach Park for the annual AAWL & SPCA Walk to Save Animals. Although Wynston was confined to the stroller, he didn’t mind! We enjoyed a day of sunshine and doggos alongside my mom and her dog, Cooper. The weather was perfect and the event was a blast as usual! Wynston even got blessed 🙂
Would you believe that my mom has never owned a dog in her adult life? Well, I’ve been wanting my mom to adopt a furry friend for years now and she finally did it. Granted, she had great reasons for not adopting a dog in recent years (which I wish more people would consider) – she was too busy with school and work, and my stepdad was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. Recently, however, we got good news on my stepdad and things are looking up. So when I tagged my mom in a post on the Arizona Animal Welfare League Facebook page, I hardly expected her to take it seriously. Then less than 24 hours later, my mom became a dog mom to the adorable Cooper. Allow me to introduce you to this super cute little muffin!
Arizona Animal Welfare League & SPCA (AAWL) is the largest and oldest no-kill shelter in Arizona. This year I am making it my mission to become more involved in their cause, as I’ve been an avid AAWL supporter for years. Now I want to take my support a step further, and to do that I am sponsoring an adoptable dog and cat each month! Without further adieu, meet our January AAWL adoptable cat of the month: Boggs! This bobtail beauty is sure to win your heart over!
Due to my hypothyroidism, I don’t often have enough energy to attend an all day event or multiple events in a day. Sometimes I feel like a rock star, other days I struggle to work through the fatigue. I had planned on attending the AAWL & SPCA Walk to Save Animals on November 5th, and then meeting up with my girlfriends and their dogs for an evening movie. I literally prayed that I’d be feeling well enough to do both. Turns out, I was! And what a fantastic day it ended up being!
“Where can I adopt a dog from? What are some good dog groomers? Do you know of any good veterinarians? Where can I board my dog?” These are common questions I get from my Arizona friends, so I’ve put together a list of my recommendations for you! (And if you live outside of Arizona this list may give you some ideas as to where to look for these services.)
