MEET US

Chews Happiness high-quality artisan dog treat bakery was founded by two people with a shared longing and a dream. Tavor White and Meeta Gawande wanted to break out of the doldrums associated with their cutthroat corporate careers and dedicate themselves to doing good for the planet.​

During a trip to Bhutan, they were inspired by the country’s commitment to Gross National Happiness, a concept that focuses less on making money and more on protecting the environment, people, and culture.​

After returning to the U.S., Tavor and Meeta got married, moved to the Colorado mountains, and expanded their family to include a puppy named Bouncer. Like so many pet parents, they wanted the best for their little bundle of joy. However, they soon learned that finding safe, high-quality pet products with “good vibes” wasn’t easy. It was at this point that they got an idea.

Why not create great products like gourmet Barkaron French macaron dog treats that promote happiness for people, their pets and the planet?​

And so, Chews Happiness was born!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Cindy was raised by her grandmother, who had a very successful business boarding, training & breeding dogs. Cindy drew on this experience during her working life, training security dogs in Barbados, and later as a dog warden in the UK.

Her childhood hobby of making pipe-cleaner dogs, and her talent for art and crafts, became the basis of her creative work today. Serious illness and sepsis prompted the start of Cindy's needle felting journey: needing something to occupy her during a slow recovery, self-taught Cindy has become world class in this addictive craft, naturally specialising in breeds of dog.

Hello to all my Halloween Lovers!

We cannot do this hard work without our LBWF family and friends! Team Effort! It takes a village!

Halloween Safety Tips
The Linda Blair Worldheart Foundation wishes you and your pets a happy and safe Halloween. Below please find some safety tips to make sure your pet has a safe and you an enjoyable Halloween!
 
  • Never leave your 4-legged loved ones outside during Halloween. Unfortunately there are plenty of people out there who play pranks that could seriously harm your pet.
  • Remember to keep candy out of reach of your pets. Chocolate is extremely dangerous, as are many of the wrappers.
  • If your pet is typically skittish give them a nice quiet, safe place in the house so they don't become frightened.
  • If your pet is social and you would like them to be part of the Halloween festivities, it's best to keep them leashed in the event they become spooked and try to dart out the door.
  • Make sure your animals are properly tagged and micro-chipped in the event of escape.
  •  Don't dress up pets unless they love it. If you do dress them up make sure the costume isn't annoying or unsafe. Avoid restriction of movement, vision, hearing or the ability to breathe or vocalize. Costumes should not contain small dangling accessories that could be consumed or cause choking.
  •  Restrict your pet's access to decorations. Jack o' lanterns with candles are obvious fire hazards, but cats can also get tangled in streamers. Pets can also become ill from eating holiday decor.
 
 
LBWF Now Has A Feral Cat Colony!
 
A group of feral cats found their way to LBWF this year. Having been raised with cats, I welcomed them with open arms. Here is a picture of one of our kitties. We are working on having them spayed & neutered to do our part to help control the feral cat population. Your donations help us to help them! Please make a donations today.
November is National Adopt A Senior Pet month!
 
We have several wonderful senior dogs all waiting for their forever loving homes! Senior dogs are still so full of life and they have years of experience in the fine art of friendship! If you are unable to adopt you could always sponsor an LBWF senior dog! To view the LBWF senior dogs, please visit www.LindaBlairWorldheart.org

On November 3, Scribner will publish a unique and irresistible guide to properly holding dozens of our favorite animals: HOW TO HOLD ANIMALS by Toshimitsu Matsuhashi.

Originally published in Japan, HOW TO HOLD ANIMALS presents advice from four wildlife experts—a veterinarian, a pet store owner, a nature photographer, and a reptile handler—about how to pick up and hold more than thirty species using techniques that are safe for both animals and humans.

 

<a href=

 

 

Chock full of fascinating animal facts, tips, and warnings, interviews with the experts, and color photos on every page, HOW TO HOLD ANIMALS will amuse and inform animal lovers of all stripes, while encouraging readers to connect with nature hands on (and responsibly). Learn how to hold animals great and small, furry, scaly, and feathery, including snails, chipmunks, chickens, chinchillas, lizards, beetles, owls, grasshoppers, mice, and many, many more (Yes, spiders and snakes, too). This book contains all the excitement and information of a nature documentary, and reading it is the perfect reminder of the wonders to be found in the wild world around us.
