Thank you to my amazing flower arranging friends and Tom for his strong hands to cut through all that wire!

 

This Week’s Extreme Dog Treats!

Hi!  Roscoe, Monty and Henry here with a guest blog post.  What’s in the treat bin this week?

Tail Bangers!  Yummmy!

And yes those are duck heads with eyeballs and a few feathers.

And Paw Benders from Good Times!

A portion of every sale is donated to canine charities.

And Mom got herself these chips.   Poor poor Mom, no fun treat for her.

Today’s Muse

 

Muse:  A source of inspiration and a guiding spirit.

Today’s Muse is Madeline who I met at the pet food store (just one of many I frequent).

An adorable young lady who informed me that her t-shirt was a triple hand me down and showed me the worn spots and holes.

When I wondered if my dogs would like a goat dog kibble she ran to the back room and found a sample for them to try (it was pretty goaty stinky but after a few sniffs they gobbled it right down).

She also made sure I got my cash discount and reminded the owner of the store to figure out a good discount for my huge purchase of over 100 lbs of dog food and several bags of parrot food.

This young lady had me smiling the whole time I shopped and I realized that she made my day a better day with her bubbly personality.  Madeline inspired me to be more friendly and helpful and to pay attention to those around me!

My Hero and Today’s Muse, Madeline.

 

This Week’s Extreme Dog Treats!

Hi!  Roscoe, Monty and Henry here with a guest blog post.  What’s in the treat bin this week?

Yup those are freeze dried pig snouts.  How do they taste?  Don’t know yet…  Mom is kind of dragging her feet because she said they are kind of gross.  There are little nose hairs on them!

A good standby.  Dried dish skins, they stink so good.

And especially for Roscoe because he hates the fireworks two boxes of calming aid.

These are roasted chicken flavor and when mom opened one of the packages it smelled soooooo good!

We told mom we were all scared but she knew we just wanted a “lick”!

Donating Platelets and Plasma

 

Platelets only last for five days.  The need for donors is high.  Plasma can be collected at the same time as platelets.

These blood components are used to treat accident victims, organ and marrow transplant recipients, cancer and heart surgery patients and those with blood-related diseases like sickle cell anemia.

What can you do while you are hooked up to the machine?  I always watch a movie.  This time I watched Hugh Jackman in The Greatest Showman.  No long lines, no talking audience, no rustling treat bags, no slurping, and no big ticket price.

And best of all a warm blanket!
