Look at this wonderful artwork! A huge round of applause to Hands on Pottery and Best of the West Photography for taking their time on a Sunday in June to host Paws on a Tile, and to all the artists who came out to honor their pups with a beautiful ceramic tile. You helped raise more than $140 for the Fur Kids Foundation! Just so you know, all the funds donated go toward helping animals in Campbell County receive adequate veterinary care during a time when their family may not be able to afford it.
Thank you again to Hands on Pottery and Best of the West Photography, we are fortunate to have businesses like you support Fur Kids Foundation!
In case you missed Paws on a Tile, Hands on Pottery has expressed interest in coming to Pet-A-Palooza so participants can create tiles with their dogs paws on them!

In June, Fur Kids Foundation assisted with the case of Angus—a 6-year-old Dachshund/Chihuahua who sustained deep cuts to his left cheek after a freak accident in his backyard.
In the summer, dog owners like to let their dogs out to bask in the sun, roll around in the grass or just sniff around in the comfort of their own yard. But, before you let your dog spend loads of time in the yard, either while you’re home or when you’re gone, there may be a couple of items to consider.
We also stumbled upon this post from Sunset on “dogscaping” in an article dubbed How to landscape a dog-friendly garden, by Sharon Cohoon. In this article, you can view a slide show of dog friendly gardens that may spur your imagination for a Fido friendly backyard.
Do you have any other suggestions for dog proofing your backyard?
