Happy National Dog Day!

It is the Human Condition to love.
It is Love that Changes the Human Condition.
It is the Love of one Human that can Change a Nation.
It is that Love which empowers one Nation, to save man's best friend.
~ Colleen Paige

National Dog Day is celebrated August 26th annually and serves to help galvanize the public to recognize 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.

Pretty much everyday in our house is National Dog Day because Miss Sophia just happens to demand it. To step it up a notch today, I think she deserves a nice bowl of yogurt with some nice plump blueberries. And of course to honor the other great dogs out there, we will pick a shelter or rescue to make a donation to.

How will you be celebrating National Dog Day?

JBG Makeover & Giveaway

As many of you have already noticed Jennie B. Goode Collars has undergone a makeover and I love it! Once I found out that two of my collars had made it into a Modern Dog Magazine photo shoot and then had been chosen to be featured in the fall issue of the magazine, I just knew JBG needed something a little more special so I had a website created.

I knew exactly what I wanted and who to hire to do the job. Marii from Pink Studios is really talented and was so much fun to work with. I told her the feel I was going for and she made it happen. If she never sees another email from me in her life I am sure that will be too soon. I can be a real pain when it comes to how I have to get what I want and she worked with me without even typing a bad word. What she may have been thinking in her head may be a different story .

Not only did she do an amazing job on my website but she did an equally amazing job at updating my Etsy Shop and Cargo Shop.

I had a really hard time figuring what to write in the ABOUT section of the website. As you can see from my posts I lack all the great punctuation and grammar skills that all the great writer’s posses so I was on a mission the find a creative mind to whip me up something delightful. I knew from the start who I really wanted to do the job and I am so grateful that she was more than willing to do it for me. Thank you Renee!!!!!!! I really love it!

Stop by their blog to check out the details on how to win a JBG collar. Contest ends Sept.1st

No post would be complete without a picture or two or three or four of my sweet Sophia. Here are some pictures from our PJ party.
