Woof the weekend has arrived !
Thank goodness the nightmare is over and all those nasty booms are done till who knows when but I am one happy little girl at this moment. My favorite neighbors popped in to check on me so when they came we went for quick walks around the block which was fun and I felt really safe. Thank you Barbara and Ryan for the visits.
Mom was so great and gave me some CBD oil to relax plus made a comfy bed in the shower where I slept.
We are now praying that whoever bolted and got lost will find his/her home again as this is just so sad that people cannot be responsible when it comes to their pets fear of fireworks.
Last weekend we had a quiet stay at home as Mom wasn’t feeling well and because of the fires in Northern California on Sunday especially the city was covered in ash and smoke so although the Jazz Festival was on which Mom wanted to go to we decided that the air was not healthy so indoors it was. Actually I liked it as I got lots of cuddles and fun time with Mom.
I am not sure if I told you but I am doing the AIDS walk with Mom on the 15th of July, it is going to be about 6 miles of walking and am really looking forward to it. You might wonder why, but the only reason is we believe in giving back where possible and as I am a PAWS client, the money would help them so whoever sponsors us is helping a really good cause. What is PAWS ? I have spoken about them in the past, they are a non profit organization, belong to the SHANTI project and help a lot of people with pets. (You can see their link on our links page).
If you want to sponsor us this is the link, thank you
Because it is a long walk Mom has been doing research on cooling vests for me, so that I will be comfortable walking and not over heat, plus with summer here I will be cool all the time when we are out and about which means less to worry when it comes to over heating. So Mom the researcher came across this cooling vest made by a company called Coolaid in Arizona which had exactly what she was looking for and the color also so it will match my harness and collar, PINK.
Coolaid is dedicated to provide an easy to use icy and cooling effect for all animals. It is chemical free what I love. We tried it out in the heat in the park and all I can say is that I am really happy with the vest, Layla was comfortable, running around and in a nutshell just what the doctor ordered. We were there for nearly 3 hours and when I got home it was still cool and damp. What I love about the vest is it just slips on, there are no straps, it fits perfectly, not too tight and her harness fits over it with ease. I would highly recommend this product to all dog owners.
They sponsored Layla with the one she wore plus surprised us with a pink towel/bandanna for me, two for her and also a Dog Wrap which is great for arthritis, swelling or post surgical areas plus it can be used as a cooling collar also. All pink so Layla and I will be matching in the Walk with her in her vest and me in my bandanna. It all arrived in a great light weight backpack which will make life so much easier when carrying water, treats, poop bags, etc.
A big big thank you to CoolAid for sponsoring Layla and of course a thanks for the towel/bandanna that I will wear on the WALK also.

So as you can see, we do sometimes have slow weeks and weekends as we need to recharge our batteries for the other times.
I am now going into my box for my morning shnooze with a full tummy, life is good in the Layla Neighborhood.
Take care and have a wonderful weekend
Woof with love
