Tuesday's Tails!

Hi Buddies!

      The Tuesday's Tails Blog hop features shelter pets, all waiting for their forever home. Please consider featuring a cat, dog or any pet at your local shelter on your blog and join the hop! Sharing these friends will certainly improve their chances of being adopted!
                                              Thanks Dogs'N Pawz for hosting!





   Today we'd like you to meet Buzz!


      Buzz was on death row until All Star Rescue, in Linden, New Jersey took him under their care. His foster mom says he's a fun loving dog who really loves his toys. He's about 3 years old, weighs 40 pounds and is up to date with his shots. Buzz has also been neutered and micro-chipped.
      Buzz could use a little more training, he doesn't like to be grabbed by his collar, so he's not recommended for a home with small children.

Another sweet boy that could use a loving home is Cameron!

  
       Cameron is a 6 year old Lhasa Apso/Poodle mix who came into the Star Pets Rescue shelter as an owner surrender. He was starved for attention and likes to "rule the roost". The shelter feels that he would do best as the only dog in a home without small children.
    He's been completely vetted now, is up to date on his shots and is also micro-chipped.

      If you think you have room in your heart and your home for either of these handsome fellows, please visit All Star Pets Rescue to fill out an application! For more information, email the rescue at AllStarPets@comcast.net.

Thanks fur stopping by!

BarkWorld Report, Day 2 & A Give Away!

Hi buddies!

    Day two has come to a close at BarkWorld and so far it's been a blast. Among the many high points today was Victoria Stilwell's keynote. Most of you may know her from Animal Planet's "It's Me or the Dog" show. She's just as dynamic and funny as she appears on the show!

     Victoria is genuinely dedicated to improving dogs' lives everywhere and we love her training techniques. She was very clear in her telling of why suppressing bad behavior with force doesn't solve the problem. Check out eHowPets on YouTube to see some of her training videos.

    After her presentation, she graciously talked with her many fans, signing her new book, and answering questions!


    Now the good news! Mom picked up an extra copy of "Train Your Dog Positively", signed by Victoria!

Once settled into the hotel, it was time fur "Blogger Speed Dating with Brands" session. George watched mom's stuff as she networked!

Going To BarkWorld Buddies!

Mom's Going To BarkWorld!

 

We're heading to BarkWorld buddies! Of course by we, I mean mom and Flat me!
(What happens at BarkWorld, stays at BarkWorld, BOL!)

       This is mom's 4th trip to BarkWorld, she's been going to BarkWorld Expo since the very beginning. Mom's learned a lot at these conferences over the years, but she still has a lot more to learn. And, she gets to catch up with her pals and make new friends too!
    This year, it's even more special, as we're being sponsored by Rachael Ray's Nutrish® !
*apaws, apaws*


     I've been eating Nutrish® fur a long time now. We love the fact that it's made from simple, wholesome ingredients, without any by-products, artificial flavors or artificial preservatives. I had tummy issues when I was a puppy, having had Parvo, so mom's very careful with what she feeds me. What's even more cool, the proceeds from Nutrish® go toward food, medical supplies and treatments for animals in need! Rachael's Rescue has raised over $4 million dollars for them so far!

      Nutrish® is sponsoring a pawsome Block Pawty on Friday, with lots of noms and drinks fur pets and their people! The first 50 attendees will be able to paint their own ceramic bowl too! If you can't make it to BarkWorld, don't worry! We'll be tweeting, "instagramming" and posting FaceBook updates throughout the whole event so you won't miss out on the fun!
     And once mom gets back, we'll be doing a re-cap of all the fun, including a special coupon offer fur Nutrish® too!
Thanks fur stopping by buddies! 

Now fur the record, this post is sponsored by Rachael Ray Nutrish®. All thoughts and opinions are my own.  As always, thank you for reading and supporting our sponsors!

       Last weekend we attended "Your Dog Is Worth It Too" event that L'Oreal hosts every year to benefit the Susan G. Komen for the Cure program. It's always a lot of fun, and this year the weather was perfect! Besides plenty of vendors, the wading pools and games, there are always lots of shelters and rescues in attendance,  including  my "alma mater",  Eleventh Hour Rescue.
    While we were waiting in one of the lines, a woman was passing out cards for the Helmetta Regional Animal Shelter. She told us that the shelter doesn't get a lot of traffic and they would love for more people to learn about them. So this week, we'd like to introduce you to a couple of pups from Helmetta!

      First up is Trapper! A treeing walker coonhound, just like me!

   Trapper has a great personality and loves everyone he meets. He gets along with other dogs too. He's up to date on his shots and if he's anything like me, would love a spot on your couch!
 Next is Toby! Just look at that face!
 
    Toby is always in a good mood. His Petfinder bio says "You can not help but smile when you are around him. He is a huggable lovable guy that is going to be an awesome family dog." Toby's up to date on his shots too. If you think that you have room in your heart and your home for either of these sweeties, please visit the Helmetta Regional Animal Shelter's site and fill out an application. For more information, contact them via email at hrashelter@hotmail.com or give them a call at 732-521-6016.
Thanks fur stopping by buddies!

Hi Buddies!

    The Tuesday's Tails Blog hop features shelter pets, all waiting for their forever home. Feature a cat, dog or any pet at your local shelter on your blog and join the hop! Sharing these friends will certainly improve their chances of being adopted! Thanks Dogs 'N Pawz for hosting!



         First we have some good news. Remember Dexter, the cute beagle we featured last week? The Animal Alliance of New Jersey pulled him from the shelter and he'll be fostered until he finds his new home. Yay fur Dexter!

We hope someone falls in love with Heidi, a beautiful Redbone Coonhound!





Just look at that sweet face! Since mom found me at Eleventh Hour Rescue, she has a soft spot in her heart fur coonhounds!

 *psst, look closely. See Heidi's back foot on her friend's foot? That's what I do to mom all the time!*



Here's Heidi's information from her Petfinder.com page:
     "Heidi is a purebred Redbone, and a dog that is highly desired in the South for their hunting ability, and their love of people.  If you look up Redbones online, it will tell you the following.  Redbones make excellent family pets, are even tempered, love their owners and families, will shower their families with kisses, get along great with children, other dogs, love the water, and love to run and hike.
    "Heidi is no exception to this, and is a beautiful dog who is around 3-4 years old, and weighs around 65 pounds.  Heidi would love a fenced in yard, or a family that likes to go for walks, hikes, or to the dog park.  Although she loves the outdoors, she also loves to find a spot on your sofa and just snuggle.  Redbones make wonderful watch dogs, and will watch over your family with devotion."

    We're hoping someone falls in love with Heidi, and gives her the furever home she needs! Please stop by her page on Petfinder to read more about her. You can contact Eleventh Hour Rescue via email at EleventhHrRescue@aol.com or give them a call at 973-664-0865.
