National Dog Week

Hey everyone! Puppy Mill Awareness Day just ended but National Dog Week has just begun! Well not technically, I couldn't get around to posting it with school once again in session but I managed to squeeze it in so here I am! You're probably wondering what the purpose of all this is so I'll tell ya. National Dog Week is an event to raise awareness of the incredible responsibility dog owners have. People often forget what a dandy duty it is! Dogs look up to us for support, whether we're poor or rich, fat or skinny, tall or short, they love us. They give us everything they have! They give us their companionship, their love, their loyalty, and in some cases their life. Dogs have a natural affection for us, but sadly many people are blind to it. They do harsh, cruel things to someone who's just looking for a pal to pass the time with. It's a sad thing and that's why we have spirit days (or weeks) like this. So here's some activities you can do with your furry friend to let him know you love him to.
  • Take your dog to the dog park!
  • Take them to a local pet store and buy them a goody!
  • Spend some extra quality time together (cuddling, playing, having a chat)
  • Go for a walk or a car ride!
My friends, that's just a few of many things to do with "(wo)man's best friend". So I encourage you to rack your brain and spend some time with him/her.

P.S. Listen to the tributes playing since the theme is man's best friend. :)

Coming to An End

Puppy Mill Awareness day may be over but puppy mills aren't. Continue to spread awareness and hopefully some day put a stop to it.

Puppy Mill Awareness Day

Hello everyone. As you may already know today is official Talk-Like-A-Pirate-Day. But more importantly it is Puppy Mill Awareness Day. If you don't know what a Puppy Mill is it is a terrible place with not even a hint of love. Allow me to tell the story of Little Tag 19 (Click here for a video) Tag 19 was the "name" she went by when she was in a puppy mill. She had the number 19 pierced on her ear as if she were a cattle. She was also branded on the top of her head. Her feet and legs were weak and crippled from living on the small cages wire. Puppy Mill females are bred every 6 weeks and when Little Tag 19 gave birth to a blind litter the puppy mill had no use for her and she was rescued. She was given a loving home along with a name, Mariah Hope (Oooh I like her!) There are many other stories of dogs that have been rescued, but not enough. Some dogs never see the sun, others never get the warmth or coolness of being inside. Puppy mills are 100% wrong but 100% legal. We need to put a stop to it! Help spread awareness of these cruel places today!

(P.S. The song playing is a tribute to puppy mill awareness day)
