I am looking to feature stores/products/companies that do something “good” – maybe they contribute to a specific cause, or it is a company that does not test on animals, or it is good for the environment, or something like that. That is the goal of this – as well as entertaining you! I like to be entertained too so I will do what I can to make that happen!

HALO, Purely for Pets
Happy Hump Day!
Can I tell you
that I have seen more doctors in the past few months than I have probably in my
entire life – chiropractors, primary doctors, veterinarians?
The past few
weeks have been at the vet – take the cat to the vet, take the dog to the vet,
take the dog back to the vet – you can see how this has been going.
Chloe the cat –
HATES the car. As in makes the worst noises imaginable and pants like a dog.
Daisy – well,
she also isn’t a huge fan of the car. Depending on the day she will either just
pant, with her mouth open as wide as she can get it and her tongue turning
purple, hanging out of her mouth. OR you get the terrible alternative of the
drool – EVERY WHERE.
The first trip
last week to the vet was just the mad panting.
The last trip
was the extreme drool which meant that she spent a majority of her appointment
whining because she was dying – dying I tell you – of thirst. You would be too
if you drooled all over the car as much as she did!
But everyone is
home now and we are all trudging along! J
At the end of
the day, I’m doing the best that I can to take care of these creatures that
rely solely on me and the hubby to take care of them – to bring them good food
and water, love them, and to make tough decisions for them.
little friends definitely make a place in our heart. And for as little as they
are – they somehow manage to make a HUGE mark on your life and your soul.

Miley behind bars- it's safer this way!
currently going through a really tough time with my Chloe and I am just hoping
for everything to work out the best way that it possibly can.

people, their pets are a fixture in their lives, other members of the family,
and you want them to be happy and healthy. This is why I’m very happy to tell
you about HALO, Purely for Pets tonight. http://www.halopets.com/

only “leading brand with just fresh meat, no chicken meal or other
rendered meats. Each bag contains a unique blend of real food proteins, whole

We consider not just the pets, but also the
people who love them when we select our ingredients. A healthy pet makes your
life better, too. We understand the unconditional love our pets give us and we

So this is kind
of a funny sidebar to the Halo products – guess who is part owner in Halo. Yep –
my favorite! Ellen DeGeneres. She cracks me up! It makes my entire day when I’m off because I
get to stay home and watch Ellen! I don’t personally know her, but I love what
I have seen from her. She seems to genuinely care about so many things. Here is a letter from her: http://www.halopets.com/about/ellen-degeneres.html.
In addition to
having a great brand of pet foods and products, there is also the HALO
Foundation. “The Halo Pet Foundation’s mission is to enhance the well-being of
pets and the people who love them. Inspired by our love for animals, we strive
to help pets and their families live longer, happier, healthier lives together.
Specifically, we seek to educate people on responsible pet ownership,
eliminating animal abuse and reducing the overpopulation of uncared for pets.”
A portion of
their funding comes from the HALO, Purely for Pets products. They also receive
products and services from the HALO people, and they receive contributions from
donors and customers of time and cash. To get more information please go to: http://www.halopetfoundation.org/about_the_foundation.html.
There is so
much information about HALO, Purely for Pets, and the HALO Foundation that I
could go on and on, but I will let you take a look at the parts that you are
Next time you
are going to give your dog or cat a treat (or new food) stop by the HALO
section and give them a treat that you can both appreciate!
