This ‘N That Thursday

Today we are joining 2 Brown Dawgs & co-host Ruckus the Eskie  for their This ‘N That Thursday’s blog hop!
This is what they have to say about the hop,

A little of this and a little of that and everything in between…

“This ‘N That Thursday is for anything you want!  Maybe you want to post about unrelated topics, or each topic isn’t quite long enough to make up a whole post, or you have awards to share, or you have one long post…anything goes!  So grab the button and join the hop!”
I am behind the eight ball on knowing what days are for what posts until I see another blogger post them up. I so need to get a blogging calendar so I can keep this stuff straight. So even know stuff isn’t happening on the day it was intended I will talk about it now.
Yesterday was National Feral Cat Day. Click on the link and see what events are going on for National Feral Cat Day. This day goes along with what is happening all month long in October which is: BP_OCTOBER_TRANS

I didn’t adopt a cat in October but I did adopt a feral cat in the end of May.

Kalamazoo Animal Rescue Kalamazoo, MI



The person who found Riley had to give him up to Animal Services because she already had three dogs. She recognized his wonderful temperament while he was in her home. As she stated … all he wants is love. Riley followed her around her house and she would have kept him herself if it had been possible. This dear boy is quite the love and would be a great addition to any family!
His foster parent is Dusty R. The adoption fee for Riley is $130.
Please complete our online application form if you are interested in adopting Riley. A volunteer will contact you as soon as possible.Click here to go to the online adoption formAll Kalamazoo Animal Rescue dogs & puppies are spayed or neutered prior to adoption. Dogs have been heartworm tested and if appropriate (age and time of year) all dogs and puppies are given heartworm preventative. All are given medication to rid them of roundworms and checked and treated for fleas & ear mites, if needed. Dogs and puppies are given distemper vaccines and depending on how long the pet has been in foster care, additional distemper vaccine(s) may be necessary and the expense will be incurred by the adopter. Any canine over 4 months of age is brought current on the Rabies vaccine. Additional vet care may have been provided depending on the particular animal’s needs. Dogs are individually priced as above.Please note that we do not ship dogs and we cannot guarantee that a long trip to see a foster dog will result in an adoption or taking the dog home on that day.It is in the best interest of pooch and owner to enroll in an obedience class soon after adoption. After all, you have a lot to learn about your new friend. The Kalamazoo Dog Training Club offers a discount to owners with newly adopted dogs. Enroll before any behavior problems start – you won’t regret it!

Go to the Kalamazoo Animal Rescue website to see the rest of our adoptable dogs & puppies.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month in helps to spread awareness and help raise money for the Susan G.  Komen fund there is a pretty cool t-shirt you can purchase. Some of the proceeds will be donated to the Susan G. Komen fund. All you need to do is go to The Pink Whistle Society and order your Glory-ous shirt. If you missed the post on how my Glory got to be the cute chessie puppy for this years t-shirt you can read about it here.
Isn't this a cool shirt. Who wouldn't want to show Glory off?

I like to read but don’t have much time. I found time to read kuruk-_the_little_be_cover_for_kindle. It was a short story about Ku’s life as a puppy in an Alaskan Puppy Mill and how he got rescued and adopted by an amazing woman. I couldn’t put the book down once I started and I shed many tears at how this puppy has grown into a beautiful adult dog and has overcome so many fears. So appropriate for Adopt A Pet Month. You can read Ku’s Haiku blog here. I gave this book a 5 star rating on Amazon. By buying Ku’s book you will help support animal rescue. How cool is that?

So that wraps it up for today, why don’t you hop on over to 2 Brown Dawgs & co-host Ruckus the Eskie see what their up to and grab the badge and join the hopping fun!

  1. Thanks so much for participating in TNT! MK sure lucked out when you found her in the marsh. (Even after her surgery this week, I bet she agrees!). I love the t-shirt of Glory for the pink whistle society! (BTW I didn’t say on your other post, but I thought the Team Giblet t-shirt you made for your host was really cute). Hope Riley finds a good home.

  3. Love that shirt! And Ku’s book too…About the need for a blogging calendar…I’ve been feeling it myself…Just signed up for a local seminar next week on using e-calendars…I’m hoping I can put it to use for the blog


  4. Riley is a beautiful senior boy! Hope he finds a home real soon. I started doing a calendar at the first of this month. It has helped me even though I still don’t get everything accomplished that I need to! Have a great weekend!
