Glamor, Fundraising and Dogs: Wigglebutts Go Hollywoof!

Saturday Sept 20, 2014 100 dog lovers and their four-legged best friends will gather at Olde Towne Pet Resort in Sterling, Va to fund-raise for Oldies But Goodies Cocker Spaniel Rescue and share their love of wigglebutts at SOLD OUT Wigglebutts Go Hollywoof, a red carpet, pet-friendly fundraiser for OBG Cocker Spaniel Rescue.

Carol Bryant, creator of Fidose of Reality, formed Wigglebutt Warriors along with her spouse, Darlene Bryant, to help dogs in need. After a hugely successful "Wigglebutt Wedding" fundraiser in 2013, Carol and Darlene were inspired to form Wigglebutt Warriors with a focus on fundraising for 501(C)3 organizations to support homeless dogs.

Wigglebutts Go Hollywoof is sure to be the dog lover's event of the year with Hollywood glamor, the first annual "Wiggy" awards, music, a red carpet, paw-parazzi...and it is all for the good of dogs!

Delia and I aren't able join the fun at the glamorous gala, but we are proud to be a blogger sponsor of Wigglebutts Go Hollywoof to support the Wigglebutt Warriors mission. Delia is disappointed she won't get to meet Dexter Bryant and all of the wonderful pet bloggers also supporting Wigglebutts Go Hollywoof. She is also disappointed that she's missing out on the SMARTCOOKEE treats and Brandy's Bark Bar sponsored by The Honest Kitchen, but she sends her best wishes to all of the Wigglebutts in attendance and those the event will benefit.

As an Independent Handler with For Tails Only, and for the month of September I will be donating 15% of my sales to OBG Cocker Rescue. When you shop, please choose OBG Cocker Rescue under PLACE A PAWTY ORDER and Sponsor ID #1014001 to be sure OBG Cocker Rescue gets proper credit. 

Also, Aimeroo  and 4 The Love of Animals blogger and Younique Presenter Aimee Gertsch is donating 10% of her September sales to OBG. Be sure to use this link when you shop to make sure OBG gets the donation.

Tasty Tuesday: Frozen Blueberry Pro Bloom Instant Goat's Milk Treats

During the hot summer months Delia loves her frozen treats. We have had high temps in the upper 90's and a few 100 degree days, so cool treats were in order.

Her favorite is blueberries mixed with Pro Bloom Instant Goat's Milk from The Honest Kitchen. The Honest Kitchen Pro Bloom is a shelf-stable instant goat’s milk with digestive enzymes and probiotics. Delia's a big fan of the flavor and I'm a fan of the fact that it is human-grade and made in the USA, and naturally free of pesticides, herbicides, growth hormones and antibiotics. Blueberries are tasty, low in fat, high in vitamin C and fiber, and contain healthy antioxidants and phytochemicals.

Here is our simple recipe for Frozen Blueberry Pro Bloom Instant Goat's Milk Treats:


1 Cup The Honest Kitchen Pro Bloom Instant Goat's Milk

16 Frozen Blueberries


Mix Pro Bloom per package instructions

Chop 8 Blueberries in food processor/chopper

Mix chopped blueberries and Pro Bloom mixture

Poor into ice trays

Place 1 of the 8 remaining blueberries in each well in ice tray. (The trays I used had 8 wells each. You may want to modify the amount of berries to fit your trays.)


Serve! The treats can be messy as they melt, so you may want to serve them on a plate. 

We hope your dogs enjoy the treats! We would love to hear if you try them and if they like them!

TASTY TUESDAY - a blog hop celebrating good food!

Sweet Pea's Story-Part 4: Farewell My Sweet Friend, Until We Meet Again

My Parrotlet Sweet Pea

“Sometimes, the smallest things take up the most room in your heart." ~A.A.Milne

June 18, 2014 my beautiful little Sweet Pea passed away. For 13 years I was blessed with her love and sweet friendship.

She was such a funny little clown. She loved banging her colorful bells, destroying her foraging boxes and chew blocks. I loved watching her destroy a foraging box while tossing the paper shreds all over her cage and our living room floor.

It's hard to believe that she is really gone. I miss her terribly, and while I hope to be reunited with her someday, knowing I'll never get another sweet kiss from her or a happy song when I enter the room, is heartbreaking.

I was truly blessed to care for this little bird and to watch her grow and enjoy life with her. Loving her and to be loved by her was an honor.

"I'll lend you, for a little while, a bird of mine," He said.
"For you to love while he lives, and mourn when he is dead. 
It may be six or seven years, or maybe twenty-three, But will you, till I call him back, take care of him for me?
He'll bring his charms to gladden you, and shall his stay be brief, You'll have his lovely memories as solace for your grief
I cannot promise he will stay, as all from Earth return, But there are lessons taught down there I want this bird to learn.
I've looked the whole world over in my search for teachers true, And from the throngs that crowd life's lanes, I have selected you.
Now will you give him all your love - not think this labor vain, Nor hate me when I come to call, to take him back again.
I fancied that I heard them say, 'Dear Lord, thy will be done.' For all the joy this bird shall bring, the risk of grief we'll run.
We'll shower him with tenderness and love while we may, And for the happiness we've known, forever grateful stay.
And should the angels call for him much sooner than we planned, We'll brave the bitter grief that comes, and try to understand."
If, by your love, you've managed, my wishes to achieve, In memory of him you've loved; be thankful; do not grieve.
Cherish every moment of your feathered charge.
He filled your home with songs of joy the time he was alive. Let not his passing take from you those memories to enjoy.
"I will lend to you, a Bird", God said, and teach you all you have to do.
And when I call him back to heaven, you will know he loved you too.
