Pedigree Foundation Announces Rescue Dog of the Year Winner

From our good friends at Pedigree: Stevie Wonderful was blind and lost when he was found. But with care and love, he has become a beacon of hope. Today he has a loving family and is a canine greeter bringing joy at Cleveland Clinic. His enduring spirit is why we chose him as PEDIGREE Foundation’s 2020 Rescue Dog of the Year.

Stevie was found trying to cross a six-lane highway, dragging four feet of rusty chain that was wrapped around his neck. He had a flea infestation, ear mites, mange, heartworm disease and suffered from malnutrition. He was also blind, likely from past head trauma.

Shelter Sunday: Nap Time at Arizona Greyhound Rescue

A little different take on our Shelter Sunday feature this week.

Sunday afternoons are my favorite time to nap. Maybe that’s why this video struck me so hard today. Here’s what the videographer from Arizona Greyhound Rescue has to say about it: Mr. Fry is a saluki mix from Arizona Greyhound Rescue. He loves to bask in the sun, so he takes his bed with him to a sunny spot for a nice afternoon nap. Mr. Fry also will carry his bed with him to be near his humans if they moved into another room.

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
