What's Essential Rescue Pet Photo Contest

We are very excited to tell you all about a Facebook project that is all about rescued pets and benefits Paws For Veterans


Created by Nordic Naturals, the "What's Essential Rescue Pet Photo Contest" campaign is near and dear to my heart.  After all, this is a photo contest for rescued pets!  Three of the four Lapdogs are rescues (one local, two from the South) and I have been involved in dog rescue for several years now.  I always say if I had a larger house, we'd be an even larger doggy family.  After all, I'd give them all a home if I could.  But since that's not possible, I do what I can to help as many as possible find their perfect forever homes.  It truly makes my heart smile to think of how large our extended foster family has become over the years.

Although we haven't had a foster in the house since Booth (last photo above, snoozing with Sophie), we have had the pleasure of fostering many dogs and puppies over the years, and we will continue to do so!  In fact, the only reason why we haven't had a bundle of puppy joy in the house yet this Spring is due to Lola's autoimmune issue, which we feel is now under control... so stay tuned for cute puppy photos later this summer!

Speaking of cute photos, it's time for me to tell you all about the What's Essential Rescue Pet Photo Contest


If you have opened your heart to a rescue dog or cat, Nordic Naturals would like you to enter their photo contest by uploading a special photo on the company’s Facebook page. Two grand prize winners will be chosen on August 1st and will receive a prize pack that includes:

I had a big white lab named Max who was literally rescued from a puddle in the middle of route 6 in a rainstorm. He was a lot of fun. I love your rescue dogs - both the permanent members of the pack and the cuties who pass through!
