My 8 Photos of #Happiness


cropped-banner.jpg
First off I want to thank Amanda from Dog Mom Days for nominating us for the 8 photos of Happiness started by Ariel’s Little Corner of the Internet as well as sharing her adorable 8 photos with us. You can view Amanda’s photo’s here on her blog post —> Click Here. Everyone who knows me knows that I am all about being cheerful, bubbly and being happy with life. Do you know how hard it was to narrow down so many photos into just 8. Very hard, but hey I think i have got it! Enjoy my 8 photos of happiness below;
Untitled

(BELOW) is a blurry photo on the computer but very important photo. This photo was featured on the Fort McMurray SPCA’s website and as animals got adopted the powerful word “ADOPTED” showed up in red. This is just after our adoption papers for Apollo, now Rolo got approved. June 23, 2014 is the day that changed his life FOREVER.10530719_438116929663893_260478804833714907_n

(BELOW) This is a photo of my childhood dog Sparky-Lee. As you can tell this is when she was older as her beard was as grey as 50 shades. Her most favorite place to be, besides snuggling with me in bed was to be driving around. This is just after I got my first sports car (2002 midnight blue Ford Mustang). Look at her smile! I miss her dearly! (RIP Nov 6/2008)2417_51563488530_8086_n

(BELOW)  As two very important people in my life were diagnosed with Cancer and I had quite long hair at the time, so I decided in August 2014 that I was going to cut my hair and donate it to the Pantene Great Lengths Campaign in partner with the Canadian Cancer Society. They take donated hair and make wigs for people going through Chemotherapy in Canada. I partnered up with Chatters Fort McMurray and got my hair cut by Debbie. I was able to donate 11 inches of my hair.I makes me very happy to now that by just simply cutting my hair, I was able to make a difference and help someone out. This leads me to my next photo of happiness.
10660240_10152302535443531_1199115570115045407_n
(BELOW) As mentioned above two people in my family were diagnosed with Cancer, one being my Grandmother. I am the first grandchild on my dad’s side to get married. I always looked up to my grandmother, and I think sometimes that I am exactly like her. Bubbly, full of life and wont let anything take her down, especially Cancer. At Christmas, 2013 I had found out that my Grandmother had cancer. I knew she was not able to attend my wedding anymore so I flew down to where she lives and brought my wedding dress with me in February 2014 so that she and my grandpa could at least see me in it. I had a fun trip but I knew it was not going to be the same as if they were with me in Mexico. Well we had arrived in Mexico and some of our guest had arrived up to a week before we got there. We got all settled in and then went for dinner. I spotted my uncle and cousin from afar and ran up to them. I gave him a big hug and he turned me around. There to my surprise was my grandma and grandpa IN MEXICO at MY WEDDING! I couldn’t believe it. I couldn’t stop crying and as I write this I tear up as it was the best wedding gift a girl could ever receive. Last minute her doctor had changed her Chemotherapy schedule so that she was able to go but she didn’t tell me. It will be a moment I will never forget. 10154169_10152025192058531_1075811952_n
(BELOW) You have to kiss a few frogs before you find your prince charming. Meeting Brett was one of the happiest days of my life. I had never had a man treat me the way that he does. I love every minute that I spend with him and I always look forward to what our future brings! November 9, 2009 we started officially dating. July 22, 2012 we got engaged and March 31, 2014 we got married. I Love You!
1779182_10151945328198531_1000308959_n
(BELOW) This is a photo of me when I was a kid (cute! I know!). I loved smiling and getting my photo taken, I actually also really love my little curly mullet I had going on. I had such a great childhood with two amazing, loving and supportive parents and later on added in two stepparents, who think of me as their own too! They all kept me busy and out of trouble.

1929967_11724673530_806_n

(BELOW) I love being able to spend a lot of time with my dog, Rolo. We have a bond that is indescribable. I cherish every moment that I spend with him and look forward to many many years of best-friendship! (totally just made that word up).
10850123_10152486709818531_4884871350355367862_n
(BELOW) A photo that brings happiness into my life is the day that I married by best friend in front of friends & family. Family & friends are so important to me and to be able to spend that time with them in such an amazing location was amazing!

Business Spotlight – Crafty Paws Creations & Paw It Forward


spotlightinterviewbanner
Good Morning Everyone! Nice to be back up and blogging! I have been absent for 11 days as I went off to my hubby’s home province of Newfoundland, Canada for a visit with all of his family. Rolo was in the good hands of my mother, who flew up from BC to watch him for me. Rolo ended up having two very strange seizures as I was gone. I am believing that they were caused by stress from not seeing me for so long. You all now know how strong our bond is together, he just missed his momma! Now back to blogging! Today on our blog we are bringing you a spotlight on two companies that go hand in hand to raise money for rescues! Crafty Paws Creations and Paw It Forward. Read all about them below!

*What is the name of your business’?
Crafty Paws Creations (Business – online shop selling my own and other vendors crafts, art and apparel and donating a portion of proceeds to rescue)  and Paw it Forward: a Cause for the Paws (fundraising and rescue organization.)

9442765*Who is filling out this interview?
Angie Kober, Founder of both organizations
<– (Photo Credit: http://www.acauseforpaws.com)

*How long have you been with the company for?
Started business in 2015

*Why was it started?
Because I felt compelled to do more than just be a rescue Mom for my rescue babies, I saw there was a need to help larger rescues raise funds and I saw a small need for a Bulldog and Senior Rescue in my area (Montana)

*Do you have any animals?
WOW, I have a lot! I have 5 furkids inside the home. You can see photos of her furfamily here –> http://www.acauseforthepaws.com/about.html
Louis is my oldest rescue he is a cow dog mix, we rescued him as a pup almost 10 yrs ago now he is a noisy little guy but still acts and looks like a puppy! Sadly last year he broke his hip but after amazing surgery you certainly wouldn’t know it!

Bella, my English Bulldog Girl, a grumpy little diva!! She just turned 5! and rules the roost…Then there is Dodge another cow dog mix that goes to work with his Dad every day, we rescued him from being euthanized by a neighboring rancher as he had a prolapse bum issue, he was just 5 weeks old and a feisty little guy with a lot of fight so we want to give him a chance, more than 4 vets told us to euthanize him until we came to a specialist that told us to use (human) hemorrhoids cream and it works!! So he is a happy, lively big guy that occasionally needs some cream :)

BoBo a rescue English Bulldog that is 2 yrs old – I rescued him from a bad situation in February he was 30lbs under weight, didn’t have any vaccinations, was extremely yeasty from low-cost food and unfortunately very scared. He hadn’t had any structure and was bonded with a sister that sadly had been sold before I got him…he was depressed. Anyway, I foster failed and he is staying with me to live out his life and is now a chunk, healthy and happy and we are working on our manners as he acts like a puppy!!

Bailey Rae, my forever foster that I broke out of Animal Control to prevent her being euthanized she is roughly 12/13 yrs old blind and deaf and was petrified (understandably so) when we got her. I have been working with my amazing vet to make her more comfortable and we flushed her ears out, gave her an eye lift a(s her eyes were sinking in and her lashes were causing a lot of irritation) she got a new hair do and she got a dental! An amazing follower of my page donated a Muffin Halo to help her get around in new spaces and she is one happy bunny – she juts needed a soft place to lay her head and home to know she is safe for however many days , hopefully years she has left!

Then I have 2 (not so) mini Potbelly pigs – Dolly Parton and Pudge – both are cases of folks not doing their research and buying these ‘fads’ of mini pigs and when hey out grow their mini status they dump them, pigs are very intelligent and get extremely attached! Dolly P has been with us over a year and Pudge only just a arrived a few weeks ago – she is so depressed it breaks my heart but Dolly is helping and she is coming out of her shell ad is safe now!

Then we have 5 horses – 2 of which are rescue’s as well – Tex, Amber, Cornflake (rescue), Cadillac and Winnie – she is my rescue big baby – a Clydesdale I rescued when she was not even 2 years old, she was emaciated and abused but now at 7 you would never know it! She is the biggest love bug of them all! We have had many animals rescue’s and otherwise over the years – some I adopted out and others passed to the rainbow bridge and ALL will live on in my heart forever!

*What do you specialize in?
Animal rescue, advocacy and fundraising.

*What types of services do you offer?
10995816_1653545028202354_6050798724624992754_nI offer for large rescue and PRIVATE HOMES (folks that have an animal they love and take excellent care of but need help with an unexpected medical bill etc) fundraising with my organization Paw it Forward: a Cause for the Paws. I also run a very small (kennel free, relying on myself and a handful of amazing foster parents) rescue for seniors of any breed and English Bulldogs in Montana. I am having a massive fundraiser for Southern California Bulldog Rescue starting tomorrow – Thursday, July 16th. Then another later in August for my organization to help raise funds for a few wheelchairs for pets in need that are in good private homes.

Rolo and I opted for the Small/Medium leash which is 3/4″ thick and 5ft long. They also come in 2 other thickness’ Extra Small(3/8″ wide and 5ft long) or Large (1″ wide and 5ft long). The leash is made from a poly/cotton blend which makes it strong, sturdy,lightweight and most importantly, machine washable. The clasp that attached to the collar is made from all plated weathered nickel. I love this design as like I said above, it matched Rolo’s bed. This leash also comes in a few other chevron colors besides the licorice color we have including: Blueberry, Strawberry, Lemon, Tangerine & Lime.

Comments:
As we all know with being a responsible pet owner, you need a leash. If your like me you may have leashes for different occasions. We want to talk about all the different types of leash Hot Dog Collars has available on their site. The amount of styles they have is astonishing! Do you know how hard it was for me to pick out which one I wanted to test with Rolo? HARD!  As you can see below I only picked a few to spotlight on this blog post but there are so many different ones online, ones for holidays, themed ones, patriotic ones, rope ones, leather ones, pride leashes, and even leashes for walking 2 or 3 dogs at a time with one leash.
Check out the site for yourself to see! —>  www.hotdogcollars.com

I also want to talk about this specific leash below as I think it is such a great idea even for business’, shelters or just people who want to stand out! Our shelter here in Fort McMurray where Rolo came from, they do a lot of events and allow people to come in and take the dogs for walks. Could you imagine how much easier it would be if they had a leash that said “Adopt Me” or “I am looking for my forever home” on them? What about a pet business?? This would be perfect marketing for you! Add your company name and a way to contact you on it. For more information about the personalized embroidered leashes —> Click Here

Pet Product Review – PetSafe Drinkwell Everflow Fountain {GIVEAWAY}


petproductreviewbanner
The First of July kicked off the PetSafe Pet Hydration Awareness Month. As PetSafe is all about Safe Pets & Happy Owners, we are bringing you a pet product review for one of their fabulous indoor/outdoor fountains. As per the PetSafe Infograph(at the bottom of the page); Did you know that 80% of your pets body is made up of water! Holy Moly! Your pet should be drinking 1oz of water per lb. Rolo is a water-o-holic. One of his Canine Epilepsy medication side effects is increased thirst and urination and I know he drinks a hefty amount of water! Sometimes he will even stand drinking water for 3-4 minutes straight.

Comments:
First off, this fountain is huge! It’s the perfect size for Rolo but I totally didn’t think it was going to be as big as it is. It was very easy to put together. I also love that inside there is a floating tube that you can choose which notch to put it on. That tells the fountain how much water you want in there and it will refill it automatically. Put it up on the highest notch and there will be lots of water in it, put it on the lower notch and there will be a couple inches of water.

Comments:
My most favorite feature on this fountain is that it auto refills itself if you have it outside with the water hose plugged in. I love that the pump circulates the water filtering and cleaning it as you can see the dot holes and line holes in the fountain. If you aren’t going to use it outside the fountain can also be used inside (with no water hose of course). It wont auto refill but it will circulate the water through the filters.

Key Features of the PetSafe Drinkwell Everflow Fountain:
-Fountain automatically refills when connected to a standard garden hose (when used outdoors)
-Built-in circulator improves aeration and helps filter trap more dirt and debris
-Anti-bite cord cover
-Made with UV-resistant, high-impact polysterene for outdoor use
-Included hose quick coupler makes setup a snap
-Best for large dogs or dogs who tend to spill or splash water
-Activated carbon and foam filters provide dual filtration
-Holds 1.5 gallons of water
-Made of BPA-free plastic
-For indoor or outdoor use
(Paragraph Credit: http://www.petsafe.net)

Testing Process:
Rolo has never had an outdoor fountain before, do you know how much he appreciated drinking outside! Especially because we are having super strange “Florida” weather here. Very humid and muggy. The fountain had ton of drinking space. Even enough room for two large dogs to drink out of it at the same time.
IMG_3893
IMG_3884IMG_3892IMG_3890
Final Thoughts:
Overall this water dish is very versatile. I really love that you can use it inside and outside! It’s easy to put together, doesn’t need a rocket scientist to figure it out. It’s also easy to clean, I just took a cloth and wiped it off. NOW where can you get your paws on this fountain? —>  http://store.petsafe.net/drinkwell-everflow-outdoor-plumbed-fountain# BUT you can also enter our giveaway BELOW and get one for free!!

Comments:
The three items we are reviewing today are the pet tag protector which fits perfectly around the official NFL pet charm (id tag) and to clip this onto Rolo’s dog tag we used the Rubit! dog tag clip. These three items are paired perfectly! I opted for a small Rubit tag clip as Rolo only has 2 tags that he normally wears. The Tag Protector will stop your tag from jingling too! I am a big football fan and as you can tell below, I cheer for the San Diego Chargers. The logo is spot on and the tag isn’t thin metal. Its nice and thick that wont bend. I also got the other side of the tag engraved too, which you can see in a photo down the page (I covered up my cell phone number, but it’s on their) These products arrived with fast shipping right to my door!

Comments:
If you are a pet mom like me, there is a chance that your pet has more than one collar. Rolo has a fancy collar, themed collars and his everyday collars. I have gel nails and do you know how much of a pain it is to take each tag and attach to the next collar. The Rubit! Dog Clip rocks! Just one simple movement and the tags are off the collar ring. Clip onto the next collar. This product can also be used for say your house & car keys too and there are a few different versions and sizes of it.  To see the different versions of the Rubit! —> Click Here .
The Tag protector is also awesome because if you have more than one tag on your collar you wont hear the “cling, cling, clink” of the tags when your pet is moving. Silence them with the Tag Protector (They have a bone shaped and different sized circle shaped protectors available). As for the NFL Tag, like I had mentioned above, the NFL tag is thick and wont be easily bent. I was able to customized it with the words:
Rolo
Epileptic
___-___-____

As I believe it is important that people know when other people’s pets have allergies, take medication as well as well as if they are found, how to get a hold of you.

Final Thoughts:
We are really happy with all three of these products. They were easy to put together, fit together perfectly and easy to attach to Rolo’s collar. The shipping was fast and nothing was damaged in transit. The engraving is very legible even from a distance. We encourage you to check out their site as they have so many items including a personalized collars –> Click Here. Stay tuned for our Hot Dog Collar Giveaway, coming your way soon!
