Lock Down means Give Away

Woof hello friends,


How are you all doing ? Are you going crazy with the lock down the way I am ? I would love to know.


While we all complain about it at the back of my mind I always think of the poor animals in zoos that are on lock down 24/7 and therefore feel I should shut up and focus on how lucky we are.


This week has gone fast and funnily enough with the lock down we actually have been quite busy.


On Sunday I finally managed to get Layla in for her annual check up, I cannot believe she is nearly 13 years old.  All is good with her but unfortunately she is starting a cataract on her right eye now, so her sight is slowly going.  The vet told me to watch it and if it starts bulging we will discuss what to do.  So I am taking each day as it comes. When we went, a technician came out to fetch her, bring the forms to fill in and then he took her in. The vet called me afterwards to tell me everything plus she left a phone message so I could listen again at home. It was traumatic for Layla not being with me for those 30 minutes but I knew she was in good hands so relaxed. I think vets all over the country are doing amazing work under the circumstances today and a big thanks to them.


The weather warmed up for a couple of days so I took advantage of being able to sit in the park under a tree on an island as I call it, my blanket and relax out doors which has made a difference in Layla also. We are all really good in the park keeping safe distances. Layla was also excited as she got to see her friend Lucy, one of the only dogs she kind of plays with LOL, so it was good for her and me. I feel recharged as such which is a great feeling.

Now for the important, with everyone inside and looking for different treats, toys and other goodies for our pampered pooches we, Raw Paws Pet Food and Layla decided to do a give away this month for 5 lbs of raw frozen chicken neck bones. Layla loves them, they keep her busy, she walks around the house with them, has buried one under my pillow, LOL ewwww.  They are healthy and keeps her happy. I am a big fan of Raw Paws Pet Food and I give Layla their supplements also and swear by them.  If you want to keep your pets happy I suggest you check their products, being a Jewish Mom if I suggest something you know it is good.

for $ 23.99

And don’t forget when you shop there if you use the coupon Layla15 you get 15% off your shopping, and with todays’ economy every penny counts.

Raw Paws Pet Food also decided to donate some of their food to a rescue organization of my choice also, so I chose Dreams. I love companies that keep rescue organizations in mind, they are the better companies.

Who is Dreams :


DREAMS has been dedicated to saving seniors out of central valley shelters since 1998. SO far DREAMS has been keeping things small due to limited income. With so many seniors in need after 15 years of being a private sanctuary we have started working on non profit status in California. Where when money permits we can rescue many senior or disabled animals in need. We are striving to be a hospice sanctuary for critical seniors in their last months. We have around 40 acres in the foothills of central California where our home sanctuary is located. We are a no cage, roam free home for senior animals in need.  

I personally know Danielle, and knowing her if she had the financial means she would be rescuing more on a daily basis. Danielle has a heart of gold, between her Sanctuary and homeless people in the town where she lives, she helps wherever possible, amazes me on a daily basis and never stops. 


Below is the Give Away App to enter :

With a Woof and Love Layla 

WOW 1,526 and still counting

TGIF ! Friday has arrived and with it of course the weekend. That is the best as it means adventures.

Our last weekend was a busy one as always as I love to keep Mom busy, it is very important she does not become a couch potato BOL.

Last Saturday we went to the Bay Area Pet Fair. This is an amazing two day event that is held once a year in the Bay Area. This event is held by a Californian Pet Store called Pet Food Express. What they do is hold an adoption event for all animals from Dogs, Cats, Birds, Rats, and others and if you adopt on one of those days you go home with an adoption Swag Bag. All the vendors that have their products in the stores have booths at the event with samples of their products so it is a wonderful way to see what is happening in the Pet Market. There were over 100 vendors so it is heaven for all of us.

I went with a friend and of course Layla on Saturday. He has a rescued Dalmation and was curious to see what foods, treats, grooming products and the list can go on, was on the market and of course fill a bag with lots of samples.

Layla was in heaven, she pigged out trying new samples and was one happy girl. I by the end was tired from having her on back in the backpack but on the other hand was just amazed as to what amazing products there are.

BUT I think the highlight of this event was the amount of animals adopted, and they still do not have the final count which will be ready on Friday but the last I heard 1,526 animals went to their new homes. INCREDIBLE !!!!!!!

While wandering around I met up with the company EMBARK which has a DNA test kit. This is something I have always wanted to do with Layla but have feared LOL as I love calling her my HaShiPoo. They gave me a kit to do on her and now the waiting begins. What I love about this kit is that the test does the following :

1. Breed ID and Ancestry
2. Health – Understand risk for diseases
3. Personalized Care – If a dog tests “At Risk” for a condition they contact you personally to discuss this finding.
4. Traits – Find the genes behind your dog’s unique look

This really interests me so cannot wait to get the results back plus it is so easy to do – all you need is a saliva sample and then LOL you give your dog a treat.

You can visit them on their website

Embark

On Sunday we had a slowish day, relaxed and then went to our dog park to enjoy the weather and friends. What I had forgotten was the neighborhood was having a block party so we wandered over there for lunch which was great plus they had an amazing band playing. A wonderful way to mingle with friends, eat good food and listen to wonderful music. Madam of course was in her element as she got once again lots of snacks.

So as you can see I am not a couch potato and Layla she not call me that LOL as we have wonderful weekends out and about and relaxing with friends too.

So now the weekend is arriving again, oy vey I have not decided what we going to do but for definite while the weather is still awesome in San Francisco we are going to be enjoying the outdoors.

Have a wonderful weekend all, with a woof and love from
Bossy Layla
