Well this is a win/win situation I am excited to share! Soulpancake has partnered with Purina and will donate 1lb of Puppy Chow for every view of their video to Rescue Bank IF they reach their goal of 500,000 views.
The video explores the power puppies have on humans, and is worth every second. At the time of this post “Can Puppies Fox Boredom?” has appoximately 115,000 views. I’m confident they will more than exceed their goal!
Now watch this adorable video and feed a shelter dog and SHARE AWAY!
They showed a video highlighting the 4 greatest rescue stories of the year that was sent to me by a reader. Grab the kleenex. The smiles on these dogs’ faces says it all. Wonderful people, wonderful dogs. Life isn’t all bad!
On Sunday September 21st, 2014, in Alliston, Ontario (a town 6o min north of Toronto), Golden Rescue will hold their 22nd annual picnic at the beautiful MapleLane Farms that boasts a 3 acre off leash area. There are also activities like dock diving and agility. Last year there were over 120 dogs in attendance.
This year, they want to break the Guinness World Record for most dogs being brushed at one time. All breeds are welcome. (Imagine the fur ball!) Funds raised go to this amazing rescue organization. Click here to see their website for details.
I am only two hours away, and I really hope to bring Tucker!
If you would be interested in attending, they would love it if you give them a “heads up” by emailing them at email@example.com
Tom Mosser, creator of “A Golden Retriever at the Museum” has just revealed his latest painting in the “Museum” series. You may recognize this first painting of Lucas staring longingly at a tennis ball.
The new painting, “Puppy Love: Golden Retrievers at the Museum” was inspired by Cooper the puppy. It is the fourth painting of the series.
Tom was approached by a woman last spring who’s parents had recently lost two goldens to illness and were devastated. They fell in love with Lucas from the famous painting, and inquired who his breeder was. The woman was referred to Mountain View Kennels in Williamsburg, PA. That is where they found Cooper.
Cooper and Lucas have since become buddies, which inspired the new painting that was revealed yesterday…
Previously in the “museum” series, here is “Rescue Dogs at the Museum”
and “Sharing the Love – A Golden Retriever and a Labrador Retriever at the Museum”
A portion of the print sales will be donated to 3 charity groups including The Animal Rescue League of Pittsburgh. You can get more information on ordering this print by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also check out the website and Facebook page
Thanks for another masterpiece and all that you do for dogs in need Tom!
Today, August 26th is National Dog Day in the U.S. As a Canadian, I am also celebrating, because it is also known as International Dog Day, or Dog Appreciation Day. A day dedicated to dogs! Why not?
National Dog Day began in 2004. It was founded by pet lifestyle expert and author Colleen Paige and aims to bring attention to “ the number of dogs that need to be rescued each year, and acknowledges family dogs and dogs that work selflessly each day to save lives, keep us safe and bring comfort. Dogs put their lives on the line every day – for their law enforcement partner, for their blind companion, for a child who is disabled, for our freedom and safety by detecting bombs and drugs and pulling victims of tragedy from wreckage“
