Would You Want This CEO Named Desmond Hague Watching Your Dog

So you ask your friend who is a CEO named Desmond Hague who runs a company called Centerplate in Stamford, Conn. to watch your dog thinking he should be a nice guy to have take care of your dog.
Until you see this video.




Video by Globe News

I sure wouldn't want this lowlife to be my friend who likes to abuse dogs. The video was report to the BC SPCA who then went with a search warrant to find the dog named Sade who was stuck in his crate that was disgusting to say,



And now the company Centerplate has offered a mer hundred grand to a create a foundation in the name of Sade and they gave Desmond Hague

a thousand hours community service.

So that's how these companies hold these animal abusers for their wrongs with just trying to give out a little money and push it under the rug.

Surfer Dog Ricochet To Be The Ambassador For Life Rolls On, They Will Surf Again For People With Disabilities


 SURF DOG RICOCHET ACCEPTS ROLE OF AMBASSADOR FOR LIFE ROLLSON “THEY WILL SURF AGAIN” PROGRAM FOR PEOPLE WITH DISABILTIES

 
Ricochet was surprised with the perfect anniversary gift today!! She was asked to become an an ambassador for Life Rolls On, They Will Surf Again (TWSA) program for people with disabilities.

 

Ricochet has been supporting Life Rolls On for the last five years But, this new role gives her the opportunity to surf with participants and be part of the mission. It’s a perfect collaboration that embodies the same purpose of inspiring, bringing people together and changing lives.

 


 Ricochet was named an Ambassador for Life Rolls On by Founder and Executive Director, Jesse Billauer. “It's an honor and a privilege to have Ricochet as an ambassador for Life Rolls On. The pure joy that she brings to the beach is everything that we stand for. The inspiration that she provides is truly a priceless experience for not only our adaptive surfers, but for all of our volunteers as well. Welcome to the LROhana Ricochet!!!” said Billauer.

 When Billauer was 17 and on the verge of becoming a professional surfer, he was pushed headfirst into a shallow sandbar, fracturing his neck. Billauer sustained a C-6 complete spinal cord injury, which resulted in quadriplegia. He lost the ability to walk and had limited mobility of his arms and hands. Billauer left the hospital and immediately knew two things: he had to surf again and he had to help others be inspired to follow their passions.

 
 With that, Life Rolls On was born with a mission to improve the quality of life for young people affected by spinal cord injury. Their signature program, TWSA is a series of bi-coastal events that empowers paraplegics and quadriplegics to experience the freedom of mobility by riding a wave with the assistance of adaptive equipment and the support of hard working volunteers.

 
As a Life Rolls On Ambassador, Ricochet will attend events and be another form of assistance to participants in and out of the water, while providing a unique and powerful kinship. She will also work to raise more awareness of spinal cord injuries, the TWSA program and adaptive surfing. She will focus her outreach on her large platform of social media followers in an effort to garner more support for Life Rolls On activities and mission. She will also fundraise from time to time in an effort to fulfill a specific need.

 
 “Being asked if Ricochet could serve as a Life Roll’s On TWSA Ambassaor is truly an honor,” said Judy Fridono, Ricochet’s guardian. “The chance to make a greater difference in the lives of those with disabilities is not an opportunity that everyone is given and is one I have no intention of taking lightly. Helping others is something so inextricably linked with who Ricochet is, so deeply engrained in her soul and rooted in my heart that I can’t imagine an opportunity more exciting. I’m eager to see how Ricochet’s distinctive abilities will impact the lives of those she surfs and interacts with, as she is nurtured by the loving environment of Life Rolls On.”

In 2013, the 129 nominated groups received more than 32,000 votes. Innovacyn donated Vetericyn products to every nominated group. “Our goal is to support and raise awareness of the amazing organizations and volunteers who work tirelessly to improve the lives and health of homeless animals,” said Tabitha Cromer, marketing communications manager for Innovacyn.
In addition to receiving Vetericyn products, the winning organizations will also be awarded prizes from contest supporters Clinton Anderson’s Downunder Horsemanship, Cesar Millan, Bio-Groom, Whimzees, Three Dog Bakery, Thunderworks, Tuggo, Cavalor, “I and love and you” Total Pet Care and New Age Pet.

Vetericyn is the perfect treatment because it helps them heal, which makes them more adoptable,” said Zach Skow, founder of Marley’s Mutts Dog Rescue. “Our rescue, our shelter, and our fosters use Vetericyn regularly, and it has made a huge difference in the lives of countless animals.”

About Vintage Dogs
Vintage Dogs is an E-commerce Pet Store with a difference. It only sells dogs and it only sells old ones. All of the dogs sold by Vintage Dogs are 15 years old or older. Older dogs are far better better behaved than younger ones. They are much cleaner. They no longer tend to “rub up against” house guests legs. By 15 they no longer usually urinate or defecate in the house. They are also much less likely to bite children. These dogs are “Vintage Dogs” and they are the future of pet owner luxury.

 They even had a Chihuahua with an asking price of $5000.
I have a Chihuahua that will be going on nineteen years old and I wouldn't even sell my buddy for any amount.

Is Trifexis Deadly For Some Dogs



After reading an article by Jim Strickland today
 this has got me worried about the use of Trifexis on my dogs after 965 dogs have died from using this product.

Yes some dog owners have said that it didn't harm their pets but there is no way I'm going to take that chance with my buddies.

 

  

 Make sure you watch the video and see for yourself.
 

It's A Pig, No It's A Dog


I came across this video today and thought that it was pretty cool watching this dog play in the mud.
