Four Paws with a Cause: The NEDA (National Eating Disorder Association) Walk

Cooper & June at the 2nd Annual NEDA Walk

We all know that dogs and advocating on their behalf are very near and dear to my heart.  NEDA, the National Eating Disorder Association, is also a cause that I support very strongly.  In my post, Seven for Sophie, I explained why.  Here is an excerpt from that post:

Help A Hound Series: Hanella & Aria

My good friend and fellow rescue volunteer, Angela, and I went to our local shelter to do a story on a pup available for adoption.  Upon arriving, the shelter manager gave us the privilege of doing a story on two adorable pups!  The dogs just happened to be kennel mates, so they were already pals! 

Meet Hanella!

Hanella is an adorable white and tan hound mix.  With wonderful floppy ears, a bobbed tail, and cute little freckles, she is a bundle of cuteness!   Hanella is a young adult that came to the shelter as a stray.  I would guess her to be between one and two years old.  She is up to date on all of her vaccines, and her spay surgery will be included in her adoption fee.  Hanella is dog friendly, and she is also heartworm negative.  All Hanella needs now is a family to call her own!

The Magic Dog Lady

My mom has a nickname for me:  The Magic Dog Lady.  This nickname started back when I saved little Betty from being a stray back in April.  My mom says the dogs know where to find me.  Word on the street is I am a lady who will always help a pup in need.  Well, sometimes rumors are true.  The dogs are right.  I will always help them!

Lucky Number Seven

After Miss Daisy (Cassidy) left, Ben and I took a three week hiatus from fostering.  Although I love fostering, it was so very nice to have some quality time with our three kids.  Ever since we adopted Willa, she never really got a chance to be the "new" dog.  We always had other dogs around.  We took this opportunity to spoil her rotten....and oh, did she love it!

After three weeks of enjoying my little family, I decided it was time to help again.  There were just too many pups in need for me to sit on the bench any longer.  I called Paula from Sea Dog Rescue and we set up a time to head to our local shelter to find my next foster.

On July 12, 2013, Paula and I met at the local SPCA.  We started walking around the kennels and I immediately fell in love!  With Farrah :)  She was a beautiful hound!  Unfortunately, we were looking for a male to go in my household, so Farrah would have to wait.  (I of course went back to photograph her and do a blog post.  She is still available!)  Hounds are most definitely my weakness.

Paula & I kept browsing.  We saw three boys that struck our fancy.  One ended up not doing well with other dogs and one wasn't available for adoption yet as he was still on his stray hold.  That left one.  Olson.

Product Review: By Nature Dog Food

Recently I was contacted by a representative from "By Nature" pet food to do a reviewAs I am quite picky in what I feed my dogs, I did a quick review of their ingredients before I made my decision.  After reviewing their food, I decided I would be happy to do a review for them!
