Philanthropist Michael Puck with K9 Photo? National Dog Day is 8/26, and this unique brand gives back to people and pets. 
K9Photo is a non-profit 501c(3)organization supported by years of research on the advantages of the human-canine relationship. His photography business features an array of professional dog wall art that enhances relationship-focused businesses. 
100% of the profits are used to support and fund projects that focus on protecting and saving animals while raising awareness of the benefits people receive from dogs.

K9 is currently launching the Global Dog Art Gallery, an online hub where companies can purchase dog wall art to support projects and initiatives that prevent suffering and save lives. This includes initiatives that eliminate puppy mills and dog fighting and initiatives that convert 100% of the over 3,000 animal shelters in the country to no-kill shelters. 
Companies can give back to their own workplace community and contribute to the betterment of dogs around the world on this National Dog Day by supporting K9. Mr. Puck was inspired by his experience with a childhood dog, and continues to incorporate dogs in people-centric frameworks.

 K9Photo and Global Dog Art Are on a Mission to Save 1 Million Dogs by 2030
Photographer Michael Puck has launched two businesses with the singular goal of saving shelter dogs from the death chamber with dog photography.
Kingsport, TN (August, 20 2021) – K9Photo is a nonprofit 501c(3)organization on a mission to showcase the benefits of the human-animal bond to prevent animal suffering. Photographer and founder, Michael Puck engaged the best pet photographers from around the world to contribute their photos for sale to individuals and businesses.
Puck, a “people scientist,” has discovered that dogs and, by extension, photographs of dogs offer a wide range of benefits that address some of the biggest challenges businesses are facing. He says that having photos of dogs in a business establishment increases sales intent by 56%. Science proves that dog wall art facilitates human-to-human interaction, creates warm and trusting relationships, and reduces stress. Intrigued by this concept, he launched K9Photo, which provides relationship-focused companies with custom-designed dog wall art options.
K9Photo’s long-term objective is to eradicate the commercial misuse of animals, including industrial farming, to achieve animal equality and effective laws and ordinances that protect all animals. 100% of K9Photo's profits are used to support and fund projects that focus on protecting and saving animals while raising awareness of the benefits people receive from dogs.
Puck is now launching the Global Dog Art Gallery, an online hub where companies can purchase dog wall art to create warm and welcoming environments that foster trust, social connections and promote increased mental health for employees and patients

RALEIGH, NC (August 5, 2021) - The AKC Canine Health Foundation (CHF), a non-profit organization dedicated to advancing the health of all dogs and their owners, announces that Dr. Cynthia Otto is the recipient of the 2021 Asa Mays, DVM Excellence in Canine Health Research Award.

Named for Dr. Asa Mays, a member of CHF’s first Board of Directors in 1995, the award is a biennial honor presented to a research investigator who demonstrates meritorious achievements in furthering the mission of identifying, characterizing, and treating canine disease and ailments. Stephanie A. Montgomery, DVM, PhD, DACVP, Chair of CHF’s Scientific Review Committee, will present the award during the 2021 AKC Canine Health Foundation National Parent Club Canine Health Conference on Saturday, August 14. The conference, sponsored by Purina, will follow a virtual format this year and features distinguished researchers presenting the latest medical and scientific advancements in canine health.

The cornerstone of Dr. Otto’s AKC Canine Health Foundation funded research has been the 9/11 Medical Surveillance Study, now in its 20th year. Since 2001, Dr. Otto has received almost $600,000 in funding to study the physical and behavioral consequences of search and rescue dog deployment to the 9/11 disaster sites. To date, the work has produced 11 peer-reviewed publications describing the short and long-term effects of deployment on toxicology, behavior, mortality, the dog-handler relationship, and more. Findings will help us protect not only the health and safety of search and rescue dogs, but provide valuable translational information benefitting the health of human handlers and first responders.

“Dr. Otto’s groundbreaking research and dedication to advancing the health of working dogs and their handlers exemplifies the AKC Canine Health Foundation’s mission and vision,” says Dr. Montgomery. “This One Health approach can accelerate medical discoveries that impact both species. We are honored to present Dr. Otto with this award and look forward to our continued collaboration to benefit the health of all dogs and their owners.”

Data analysis from the 9/11 Medical Surveillance Study is ongoing with funding through CHF Grant 02322: Analysis of the Health, Behavioral, and Longevity Data Collected in the 9/11 Medical Surveillance Longitudinal Study. This work is part of CHF’s $11.4M active research portfolio encompassing all aspects of canine health. View CHF’s Research Grants Portfolio at akcchf.org/portfolio.

Below are the details for our event that is starting Saturday.  It was going to be started Sunday on National CBD Day, but I wanted to have it active for your show, Talkin' Pets

We have worked alongside a variety of animal rescues and shelters and have seen CBD provide these organizations a critical tool for decreasing animal stress during fire evacuations, transport, and from sometimes crowded shelter conditions.   

We have also seen CBD provide some of our dog shelters with an invaluable tool to meet the needs of their more challenging cases, many of whom have chronic health issues, injuries, and behavioral challenges caused by chronic neglect or abuse.

Two of the rescues we have worked with really go above and beyond.  They both are entirely funded by donations, and focus on the “hard cases”.  The dogs that will be difficult or expensive to find homes for.  Many of these dogs are the victims of abuse, neglect, injuries, or abandonment.  Dogs that are older, have broken legs, pneumonia, parvo, severe skin infections, or have been starved.  In most shelters these dogs would be euthanized, but they are given a chance because of the work of rescues like Northwest Dog Project and Love Leo.  

In observance of National CBD Day, Green Element is running a “BUY 1 GIVE 1” promotion to benefit our partners at Northwest Dog Project and Love Leo.  Rather than giving our customers a discount for National CBD Day, we are asking them to join us in "paying it forward" to support the work these groups do.

For every bottle of Green Element Hemp Oil for Pets that is purchased through our website between August 7th and August 22, we will give a free bottle to Northwest Dog Project and Love Leo.

A Guide to Discovering the Spiritual Agreements between Our Souls and Those of our Animal Companions Animal lovers are extraordinary. Despite awareness that we will probably outlive our beloved pets, we are still drawn, time and time again, to the connection, joy, and unconditional love that come with sharing our lives, homes, and laps with animals. Many of us feel something deeper than just companionship with our animal friends—a heart-to-heart connection felt all the way to the soul level. Revealing the higher purpose and soul mission behind our relationships with our animal companions, Tammy Billups explores the spiritual contracts that are created when a human bonds with an animal and shows how we come into each other’s lives for a reason. Providing real-life examples, Billups explains why animals choose, at the soul level, to have certain perceived negative experiences, such as physical or behavioral issues, to evolve their souls, clear karma, and help our soul’s evolution. She shows that human and animal souls orchestrate every experience and interaction that holds potential for transformation and healing, including the final transition. She demonstrates the inner dynamics of the animal-human relationship to help animal lovers understand their soul contracts with their pets. The inspirational, real-life examples of animal-human tandem healings that Billups facilitated identify the soul contracts within each pairing that transformed feelings of grief, loss, abandonment, betrayal, trauma, abuse, and anxiety. The author reveals how animals we have previously loved and shared our lives with come back, either on the spirit level or reincarnated in a new animal form, to support us. Offering peace and hope to those who’ve lost beloved animal companions, she describes what she’s witnessed during healing sessions with animals in the weeks before they transition and during their passing. Billups also includes practical instructions for identifying different types of animal soul contracts and connecting with and enlisting the help of your light team or spirit guides. By discovering the soul agreements that underlie our animal partnerships, we can find meaning in the issues that arise with our animals and ourselves, support our souls’ mutual evolution, and allow the soul contracts to weave their spiritual magic in the animal-human relationship. Author Bio: Tammy Billups is a transformational soul healer and pioneer on the animal-human sacred soul partnership. She’s a sought after holistic healer, the creator of animal-human Tandem Healings, and a Certified Interface Therapist. She has appeared on CNN’s The Daily Share, Primetime Live ABC, and Oprah. She lives near Atlanta, Georgia.

It’s time for a long-overdue upgrade to dog waste bags… My name is Max Leahy, and I am the founder of PnT Pets Inc., and the inventor of Poop ’N Tie dog waste bags. It has been said that "necessity is the mother of all invention.” This necessity is what lead me to create Poop ’N Tie bags. I grew up in a suburb of New York City with two Old English Sheepdogs. Our house had a dog run out back, so I never had to think about picking up after them right away. In fact, it never crossed my mind. When I relocated to Los Angeles, I got my first “fur-child.” She is a beautiful Australian Shepherd with two bright blue eyes named Scout. I quickly learned the trials and tribulations of picking up and conscientiously throwing away the poop. I tried many different dog waste bags and found them to be sub-par in quality. The problem was as Scout grew larger, it became more difficult to tie the full poop bag as she pulled on her leash. I tried bags similar to plastic shopping bags with handle ties. They were much easier. However, none of these came in a roll format, let alone bags that would fit into a roll dispenser for a leash. I began my quest to find an adequate poop bag that met my needs. One day after taking out my kitchen trash, it struck me that a drawstring poop bag might be the solution. Sometimes, the answer is right in front of you. I experimented cutting a drawstring kitchen bag into smaller bags and afterwards using a food saver machine to seal the edges - and - Eureka! The Poop ’N Tie bag was born. www.poopntie.com add PETRADIO in the promo code box for 20% off your first order
As many students swapped classrooms for computers over the past year, a new survey of 2,000 parents across the UK and US finds that their children’s classmates in the virtual learning setting – their pets—provided real mental health, academic and social benefits. Research has long shown the benefits of having pet interaction in a physical classroom setting and this study confirms these benefits are now being seen in virtual education environments as well. The survey reveals pets helped children cope during the pandemic -- decreasing loneliness, anxiety, and stress and providing a source of motivation for their studies helping improve academic performance. This is positive news in light of early indicators the pandemic has had a negative impact on children’s social skills and well-being, with a recent report finding over 1.5 million children in the UK alone will need additional mental health support as a consequence of the pandemic.
Wishing you and yours peace and love this Easter holiday and Passover We have all been through a trying year and as the country opens, we pray everybody will remember to stay safe through their travels and gatherings with friends and family. We continue to rescue unfortunate angels that once again are being abandoned and found their way to the shelters. Your love and support help us to continue saving innocent lives. Your Easter tithings mean the world to the dogs! We have included pictures of a few of our recently rescue dogs and the bewildering story of sweet “Bruno” who we recently rescued. Easter treats for your four-legged best friends! While many of you continue to share food from your table, we encourage you NOT to feed them human food from your dinner table. For their health, feed grain free, limited ingredient dry food and canned foods, such as Evengers and Against the Grain 100% straight meat with no stews. You can also steam their meat and add to their dry food. I feed a mix with apple cider vinegar, coconut oil, salmon oil, and hemp seeds. (available through our Amazon smile link) We encourage you to add immune support, probiotics that are foil wrapped or out of the refrigerator section at your health food store, for proper processing, and www.nzymes.com granules and bac- pak. You all know about healthy gut digestion by now and these are so important for your best friends as well! For treats we suggest dried duck or chicken treats. Sweet potato strips wrapped with duck are readily available as well and the dogs love them. Smart Bones and Dream Bones have vegetable-based chew sticks and bones. We no longer feed rawhide! There is formaldehyde in rawhide, a major no-no for your best friend! Keep all kids Easter candy away from your pets! You do not need a visit to the veterinarian! For the vegans out there, I can suggest visiting our store www.LBWFstore.org And picking up a copy of my book “Going Vegan” Of course, that will come after Easter, but it makes a great gift! As a special vegan Easter dinner and a real treat for yourselves, try vegan ham, vegan egg salad, a beautiful red leaf lettuce salad with broccoli, mushrooms, carrot strips, add pine-nuts, cranberries and my favorite dressing is Annie’s Goddess dressing! For dessert have a vegan carrot cake or vegan cupcakes available for you and your family and there’s many wonderful vegan ice cream alternatives! Wishing you love and peace to your family this Easter and Passover time. Your Easter donations to LBWF make a world of difference to the rescued dogs in need! With Love as always, Linda Blair for the rescued dogs of Linda Blair Worldheart Foundation DONATE Bruno's Story ‌ Bruno was recently rescued by LBWF. While taking his freedom pictures, we noticed a strange lump in his left side of his chest and took him to the vet for some answers. Nothing was defined except may be a simple large cyst. We scheduled him for his surgery to remove the cyst. Upon my return to the veterinarian to pick Bruno up, the doctor placed a 9 mm hollow point shotgun shell in my hand! I gasped! This was the unknown cyst in Bruno‘s body! Somebody had shot this magnificent and truly kind, sweet dog with absolute intent to kill! I have seen and been through everything with the dogs, but I have never rescued a dog that had been shot. It took my breath away as I am sure it does yours. I was and continue to be so angry! I work so hard rescuing dogs, and this just took my breath away! The world has many people who do not share our love of the animals and for this, we must pray harder for peace and for these criminals to pay the price for what they do to innocent lives! Animal cruelty has never stopped. Your donations support LBWF to make a difference and to continue fighting on for the animals that need our help! April is Prevention of Cruelty To Animals Month There's No Excuse For Animal Abuse! Meet Hank & Holly! Two of our recent rescues LBWF Rescue Support Store Please visit our store www.LBWFstore.org and help support the LBWF Rescued dogs with all kinds of fun new merchandise! Autographs Now Available!
