The Amazing North Shore Animal League Tour for Life

     On March 26, 2015, the North Shore Animal League Tour for Life pulled into our town.  They stopped by the Humane Society of Northwest Louisiana (HSNWLA) to pick up some dogs and drove them in their awesome mobile adoption center to our local Petco parking lot.  The HSNWLA was the partner shelter.  Many of our other local rescues and eager residents looking to adopt a new best friend were there.  It was a terrific day to adopt a pet in Shreveport!

Smart Pet Love Safe & Sound 4-in-1 Harness

4 in I Pet harness package
  Have you heard of SmartPetLove?  It is the new name of the Snuggle Pet Products line of fantastic products with heart.  They make products that use the natural calming effects of a beating heart to help soothe your dog or cat.  The best thing about the heartbeat technology is that it works!
   You are probably asking yourself, “how does this work?”  Dogs are pack animals and love to be with another beating heart.  Just as the sound of someone’s heartbeat calms and helps a human relax, the same is true for dogs.  SmartPetLove has been making the world famous Snuggle Puppies since 1997.  Now, they’ve put the same heart in a wonderful harness.

Modern Dog Magazine Inspiration

   I am a certified ‘Quote-aholic.’  I fell in love with quotations as a sixth grader when my teacher, Mrs. Williams had us memorize a different quote each week.  The words intrigued me and I began absorbing them.  The love for quotes has never left me.  When the category on Jeopardy has anything to do with quotations, this girl is on fire!  Quotes Rock!
   You can imagine my excitement when one of my blogging friends, Chelsea Price from Second Chances sent me a 'tweet' to say that she had seen MY QUOTE in the spring edition of Modern Dog Magazine!  I went to my local bookstore and found the newest edition and there on the cover is a box that says “Get Inspired” page 91.  I eagerly turned to the page and LOOK!  It is a quote from my second book TheReturns 2 ~ Showstoppers.  I am extremely honored and since my birthday is the first day of spring, it is the best present that I could receive!

 “To crate or not to crate.”  It’s a question many new pet parents ask themselves.  That’s because many loving people believe it is a form of punishment to crate their dog.  Rest assured, just the opposite is actually true.  There are many times in your pet’s life when the benefits of crate training will come in very handy.  PetSmart® stores are having a huge sale on their crates, kennels, and carriers this month.  Their knowledgeable sales staff can help you select the ideal kennel or cart to fit your pet’s needs.  That makes now the perfect time to begin your pet’s crate training.
