Celebrate National Dog Day with a special musical video from Walkin’ Pets. Each year on August 26, National Dog Day salutes all dogs whether they are mixed breeds, pure breeds or special needs breeds. It is the only holiday that honors family dogs, says thank you to working dogs and calls attention to dogs waiting to be adopted. This year there is also a one-of-kind musical video that pays tribute to dogs in wheelchairs. [Read more…]
As a blogger, I write about a lot of products for both healthy and disabled pets. That means I receive lots of samples. Most are used by my dogs and cats for the reviews, but some companies are generous and send more than we need. I wasn’t sure what to do with the samples so started a shelf in my pantry for them.

Carol Smock is the founder of Brown Dog Foundation. She recently shared how her group works to save pets with life-threatening illnesses. [Read more…]
Have you logged onto the Lessons From A Paralyzed Dog Facebook page lately? I am proud to say that it has grown into an active community. In the past week, several pet parents have posted about two paralyzed dogs in need of loving homes. Tami is with a rescue group in Ohio and Biscotti is in Colorado.
It occurred to me that not every pet owner reads Facebook. (Shh, this will be our little secret!) So, I decided to write a quick post about these two cutie pie pups. I hope you’ll share their stories with the pet moms and dads you know. [Read more…]
