Vote here to let us know how much you love and adore your dog! I would go to the ends of the earth for my boys, would you?
Our Fundraising event is August 26th at Putting Edge from 1-4pm. Tickets are $20.00 in advance or $25.00 at the door and include 18 holes of indoor, glow in the dark miniture golf, free arcade games, pizza and pop! We will be giving prizes for things like best score and most holes in one, we will also be having a 50/50 raffel! Unfortunately, I have not sold as many tickets yet as I was hoping to and I am reaching out to friends, family, and anyone else that thinks they can help sell tickets for me, would like to buy tickets, or would like to help by spreading the word. This event is going to be a ton of fun at a great low price considering what is included and the best part is that it’s for a great cause! Although our fundraising site has done well so far, we still haven’t yet raised enough for the tests and medication Zeus needs, which is why this event is so important. If you are interested in buying or selling tickets, please contact me by leaving a comment on this post or contacting me (my phone number and e-mail address are at the bottom of the flyer located in the top left of this post). If you would like to help us out by sharing our information, please share my blog, our fundraising information and Putting Edge flyer. I hope we get a big turn out and I know all who join us will have a great time (the more the marrier)! I will also welcome any ideas, information, or tips you may have that would help us sell out all of our tickets! We hope you will join us in supporting our cause and for a day of fun!

Before humans die, they write their last will and testament, give their home and all they have, to those they leave behind. If, with my paws, I could do the same, this is what I would ask…
To the poor and lonely stray, I would give:
– My happy home
– My bowl and cozy bed, soft pillows and all my toys
– The lap, which I love so much
– The hand that stroked my fur, and the sweet voice which spoke my name
I’d will to the sad, scared sheltered dog, the place I had in my human’s loving heart, of which there seemed no bounds. So when I die, please do not say, “I will never have a pet again, for the loss and pain is more than I can stand.” Instead, go find an unloved dog, one whose life has held no joy or hope and give MY place to HIM. This is the only thing I can give to him…. The love I left behind.
My dogs, Zeus and Lucky have so much fun playing a game that I invented: “Go find it”. As soon as I ask them if they want to play their favorite game, their noses go into over drive. The only rule is that they have to sit and stay in the dining room while I hide a large handful of their tasty kibble. This is really difficult for them because their anticipation and excitement rises, which makes them whine and unable to sit still. Once the tasty morsels are all hidden, I release them from the dining room by saying “go find it” in a super excited voice and the dogs are released! Off they go on a wild hunt for the mouthwatering snacks, running to and fro in a race to see who can find the most kibble. First, their noses are high in the air searching out the scent that they long for. Next, they search every inch of the living room. They check every corner, under tables, on the couch, tossing cushions from here to there, and even beneath the couch. They desperately search every inch of the living room! After a few minutes, my furry friends are jumping on and over the furniture, racing in one direction, then the next. My boys have been known to even run into each other or knock down innocent bystanders. They are like wild dogs running crazily through my home. The house is full of chaos! Finally, the count down begins as I tell them how many are left and the race picks up speed. Lastly, when my treat searching fools have found all of their hidden snacks, they run to where I am standing and sniff my hands and pockets just to make sure that I wasn’t holding any back. This game is fun for all involved. Just thinking about it, the laughter starts to bubble up in my throat. I find it humorous to watch my boys go crazy for their little bites of heaven.
