Supporting Paws For Veterans And Animal Shelter Dogs

Since yesterday was flag day and the US Army”s birthday I thought today would be a great day to share a super fun and exciting contest that’s coming up in a few weeks.

The What’s Essential Rescue Pet Photo Contest.

We’re sharing this contest with you because while my dogs are not rescue dogs I do support many rescue organizations through this blog and behind the scenes. Many people seem to think that you can’t have a purebred dog from a breeder and still care or support rescue dogs and shelter organizations. That could not be farther from the truth. This blog and my dogs have allowed me to help and support many organizations financially and through donations of goods, that without them, I would never be able to do.

And……..I know that many of you have totally awesome rescue dogs that would be perfect for this contest!

So here’s the low down on the contest created by Nordic Naturals:

    I love YOUR photo at the top! I sense another blog award nomination in your future!

    We really liked the Nordic products that we tried and I’ve been telling myself that when I get a little more money I’ll order some more. The contest sounds like a really neat idea! I’ll have to put my thinking cap on!
