Prayers and Positive Energies Going Out

Yesterday I learned of two more dogs who have been diagnosed with cancer. One is Skye, a beautiful, champion Samoyed who lives here in Washington; all I know is the cancer was in her lungs and she has had pneumonia. The other is Mufasa, a gorgeous Golden Retriever of about 5 years in New York, battling lymphosarcoma. I am taking a moment to send them kisses and good energy, sending strength and comfort to them and their families.

What do you get when you take a group of people who love dogs, mix them together with a little warm water and tearless shampoo???

Well, if you get a pup or two tossed into the tub, you have a doggie bubble bath!

Thanks to the great mind of Tobey at Viking Bank the Yacht Dogs Yacht Club was able to help do a little fund raising for Pasado's Safe Haven and have a lot of fun in the process. Kory at Mud Bay enthusiastically jumped on board and Mud Bay quickly sponsored the wash with shampoo, conditioner, brushes and the like, plus Kory taught us all how to wash dogs the right way!!!

Additionally, MJ McDermott of Q13 Fox News and Stubbs of KMPS gave their support over the airwaves so folks new when & where to come!
This is Chloe, the sweetest one-eye'd blonde Cocker I've ever met and was rescue'd through Pasado's Safe Haven, now living in a wonderful home. Getting to talk with the volunteers from Pasado's you learn how special that place is and spending the day with those ladies was very inspiring. Thank you, Carol, Andrea, Kim and all of Pasado Team!!!

Getting the chance to do this meant so much to me. To have the opportunity to talk with the volunteers to give back a little bit in appreciation for all the love that my dogs have given me over the years, to do something for the community, have fun with the dogs... I am so blessed to be able to do these things!

My best friend from forever came with her new puppy ~ when do you ever get to hold a Bernese Mountain Dog? Gotta do it when ya can! 'Cause if ya can, ya won't be able to for long!!!!THANK YOU EVERYONE!!!
