Lovely Luna and CANDi

I have been thinking a lot about this post over the last week.  I wanted to do it justice and include all that should be included.  There were so many things I wanted to say and so many different emotions I was having.  PLEASE take the time to read it all the way through.  It's a very uplifting and inspiring story. I promise it will bring you to "happy" tears.

It was last Monday, March 18 that I first learned about Lovely Luna.  I was intrigued when a local pet store posted on Facebook that a dog named Luna was to arrive in Saratoga Springs, NY that night to settle in with her new family.  Where was she coming from?  What was her story?  I had to find out.  There was a link, and with this one click, I was swept up into Luna's journey, life today and the wonderful work of an organization called CANDi (Cats and Dogs International).

Wet Noses

I am not doing a paid review, just honestly recommending a brand that is fairly new to me.  In last month's BarkBox we received treats by the company "Wet Noses". ** (You don't need the BarkBox to order a sample of these treats.)**  We got a box flavored "agave and pear" and another box flavored "cheddar".  My boys love them both!  They love most treats but there is and extra excitement that is very obvious over these snacks.  I love them because they are natural and wheat free (many are also dairy and egg free).  They are made right here in the US and certified organic.  I really like feeding foods and treats with antioxidants and the agave and pear are perfect for that!  Pears are a full of antioxidants.  If you visit their site you will see you can order all varieties of sizes, from sample tasting sizes, to bulk!  They even have an adorable array of bakery items for your special doggie occasions :)  Please check them out here!  I am their newes…


Not too far from where I live, tragedy struck Wednesday morning. Six people were shot while out doing everyday errands at a car wash and barbershop, by a man who went on a shooting spree in Herkimer, NY.  Four were pronounced dead.  As Wednesday evening settled in, the shooter had hidden himself inside a vacant building and the FBI had him surrounded.  Early on Thursday morning, news came that the shooter (I prefer not to call him by name) had been killed, but not before something else tragic happened.  Ape, the K9 there on duty that morning, serving his people and doing exactly what he had been trained to do, was fatally shot and killed by the shooter when he was sent inside the building.  Ape had only been on active duty since the end of February and was two years old.  Of course I have questions...Was he wearing a vest?  Why couldn't gas have been thrown in instead of this precious dog?  Right now I am trying to keep the "what ifs" at bay, and just focus on how gratef…

Look Into My Eyes

I could not be more thrilled with this painting.  Sheila Wedegis is the very talented artist who painted Murray's eyes.  She is dedicating all of March to painting dogs' eyes, or as she puts it, "the soul of the dog".  She is so right!  I can completely see "my" Murray in this painting and am so happy that I will have him like this forever !  Thank YOU, Sheila!  I can't wait to hang this beauty on my wall :)
