Daisy from the Suncoast Animal League

But if you want to get technical, it’s this Sunday. So in honor of National Dog Day, take a moment to check in with some of my favorites for their special weekend events.

At the Suncoast Animal League, it’s a clean sweep on Saturday with a Doggie Wash at Fairway Pizza and Sports Page Pub. Bring your dirty doggie over between 11 am and 2 pm with pricing according to your pet’s size. Great time also to ask about volunteer and foster opportunities. Looking for a new furever friend? How about Daisy? Meet Daisy. Terrier/lab mix Daisy has spent the past two months in one of their awesome foster homes. They have two medium-sized dogs that she gets along with really well. They also have a cat that doesn’t care for dogs so Daisy respectfully steers clear of her. Daisy’s foster family had the nicest things to say about her. “She’s very responsive to sit, down, and leave it. She loves to go on walks and snorts like a pig when she cuddles, which is the cutest thing. She’s learned a variety of good manners in her time here. She crates up on command, stays off of furniture until given permission, and loves steak leftovers. And her face kisses are the best.” Daisy is now ready for her forever home. She’s 2-years-old and weighs 49 lbs. She has been spayed, microchipped and is up-to-date with vaccines. Interested in meeting Daisy? Please email us at Please make a note as well – Dogtoberfest is coming!!! It’s one of my favorite events and the time to start fund raising is now.


Petunia from the Humane Society of Pinellas

From the Humane Society of Pinellas comes a sweet little girl by the name of Petunia who dropped by earlier this week to say hello. She’s all of six pounds and is eight years old. She just loves to be petted and cuddled and needs a loving family to call her own. She’s quiet at first but would love to leave the shelter and be with her new family soon .Please check with Pinellas County Animal Services for more on this darling little lap dog. We also welcomed Beau to The Dove this week. Kind of a sad story, his owner died and he had to go to the shelter and he’s a little on the down side. Cheer this beautiful hound mix up with a new home!And if you think your darling doggie is calendar-worthy, enter now for a chance to be on the 2019 Calendar! Entries are being accepted through Sept. 1st.

What a handsome fella Beau is!

If you’re group has something special on the way this weekend tell me all about it
