Dog Therapy is the Best Medicine!

As you all know, my youngest daughter L has a rare disease. She amazes me with her strength. I’m going to be real and honest. I don’t know if I could live on a prescription formula. L shared how she deals with her chronic illness in her latest video. Hope you will take the time and watch.

Dogs are a great medicine for our sweet L. She is a huge animal lover and her heart beats very fast when she is around dogs. The love and compassion she has for dogs is amazing. Dog therapy is truly the best medicine for her. We had a big clinic day yesterday at Children’s Hospital and our friend met us at a nearby park with her dogs. This helped ease L’s anxiety and just seeing her smile ear to ear, warmed our hearts immensely.

In addition, on our recent trip to Florida, we stayed with family part of the trip and they have two boxers. L was over the moon during our entire stay. This picture will now be framed in her “dog” room.

Dogs speak her language and help her cope. She can be having a bad day and our medicine is to immediately bring up dogs to her. She can sit for hours and tell you how to train a dog. Her future goal is to get a puppy, train the puppy, and have it be registered as a service dog so she can take the dog to Children’s hospitals. I feel she will accomplish this goal in the near future.

Enjoy her video and please continue praying for a cure!

Dog Can’t Stop Barking at Television

Christmas time is a coming…..

This is my favorite time of the year. I have been playing Christmas music since September. Yes, I am that person.

Today, we are spreading Christmas cheer to your screen. This past weekend we decided to turn on the Hallmark “fireplace” on the television screen. Our dog, Kingston, went crazy when he saw another dog on the screen. As you can see, the other dog is not amused. Click on the picture to see the video on YouTube!

Help pair a guide dog with a veteran in need! #SeeMuchMore

As my readers know, Kingston is our baby. He is very spoiled and we wouldn’t have it any other way. He truly is a best friend to us all. This past Friday, an opportunity fell in our laps to adopt Kingston’s sister Annie. We now have two dogs in our family and couldn’t be happier. L has been begging us for a long time to get another dog but we wanted a dog that would get along great with Kingston. God helped bless us with Annie.

L has a special relationship already with Annie, just as she does with Kingston. Dogs have that special touch to create a special relationship. Kingston was right there with me through my double jaw surgery and he has always been a great comfort to L through her hospital stays and sicknesses!

I am so honored to partner with VSP to help change the life of a veteran through America’s VetDogs.

With your help, VSP Vision Care will donate $50,000 to train and match a guide dog with a veteran whose vision is impaired.

How it works

o All you need to do is share!

o Visit SeeMuchMore.com and click on “Vision to Share.”

o Every time you share the video, VSP will donate to the care and training of a guide dog – up to $50,000!

America’s VetDogs provides highly trained guide dogs to help veterans lead active, independent lives. It costs $50,000 to raise and train each dog, given to the veteran at no cost. Puppies are trained from birth for two years. America’s VetDogs matches each dog’s skills and personality to the disabled veteran’s needs. Dogs typically work with the veteran until they are 10 years old. Retired dogs are adopted.

It is amazing how much the VetDogs can help the veterans. Truly remarkable. Will you help share the video? Please and thank you! I know L will be ecstatic and her mom will be too! 😉

After you share, make sure to enter our awesome giveaway! You will be stylin’ and profilin’

Animal Planet’s AMERICA’S CUTEST: DISNEY SIDE HOWL-O-WEEN special

Walt Disney World went to the dogs, literally! Our sweet L is such a huge animal lover. She would have been in dog heaven surrounded by dogs at the most magical place on Earth. How cool would it have been to show-up and see dogs taking over Main Street?

Disney Howl-o-ween

101 dogs joined their owners and pranced through Magic Kingdom as part of a Disney Side Dog’s Day at Magic Kingdom today before park hours at Walt Disney World Resort.

The tail-wagging morning featured a doggie dance party, a walk in the park through Cinderella Castle, a costume contest, doggie treats and more.

While Disney has a special allegiance to dogs, the event was private. Dog owners participated in a special “Show Your Disney Side” online photo contest, showing their pets dressed whimsically as Disney pirates and princesses, heroes and villains.

Pooches walked the green carpet and joined in a dog jam dance party with beloved Disney dogs like Pluto and Bolt.

The production was part of Animal Planet’s AMERICA’S CUTEST: DISNEY SIDE HOWL-O-WEEN special scheduled to premiere October 18. The hour-long special hosted by actor and pet lover John O’Hurley (Seinfeld, Family Feud) will feature humorous video clips celebrating the Disney Side of pets and their owners.

Let’s Celebrate Pet Appreciation Week

Disclosure: I participated in this program on behalf of Pet Supplies Plus and The Motherhood. All opinions are my own.

This week is Pet Appreciation Week! Our beloved Kingston is our sweet baby boy. He is the Prince of the family and sure knows it too.

This is a week to celebrate all the things we love about our pets as we shower them with extra love and affection. It’s also a good time to re-evaluate their nutrition needs and perhaps pick up a new toy to help them get the exercise and stimulation they need to thrive.

We traveled to our local Pet Supplies Store to pamper Kingston.

Pet Supplies Plus stores are conveniently located in neighborhoods across the country, with each location big enough to carry everything your pet needs, but small enough to feel like home. The Pet Supplies Plus in-store team is dedicated to helping you find the right products for your pet. As soon as we walked in, we were approached by team members to ask how they could help us. Great customer service.

We were on a mission to find Kingston a flea and tick collar. There were several different options available and even coupons attached to some of the collars.

Our huge animal lover, L, had to take time to visit the birds and fish. She loves visiting the pet store to see all the different animals.

The team members were able to answer our specific questions about the animals which impressed us with their knowledge.

As we were strolling down the aisles, we quickly realized Pet Supplies Plus is stocked with many items from clothing to sweet natural treats for our Prince.

Of course we had to grab the doggy decorated treat. Kingston enjoyed every bite. Check out this cuteness.

So adorable right? As we were checking out, we noticed that there was a dog tag machine that allowed you to customize the tag. We purchased a collar and tag that matched. It was extremely easy to customize. The team leader allowed me to type my own information that I wanted on the tag.
