This is Marie. She’s a black labrador or perhaps a lab mix – she’s around 3 or 4 years old and lived in a refuge until she was given her forever home by a family in Gorbio.
I have admittedly never hung a wreath on my door for anything aside from Christmas (you can check out our 10 Great Holiday Wreath Designs post right here), but I’ve been feeling extra festive about springtime this year, and I’m itching to translate that into some seasonal decor. There is also the fact that since we’re house hunting right now, I’m feeling a little less motivated to plan for our garden – which bums me out a little, but also inspires me to focus on other ways to bring some springtime to our current home. So I decided to search for some ideas for pretty spring wreaths, which led me directly to this edition of 10 Great, guys. I feel like it’s been quite a while since I’ve done a DIY project at all, and I can’t think of a better reason to get back into it than spring. (P.S. I might just buy one and dress it up a little. Don’t tell anyone.)
Are you working on anything fun for spring in terms of home decor or gardening?
There are many heroes in animal rescue and sometimes that hero can even be another dog!
According to the Saint Augustine Record, a black lab puppy named Gunther came into the Jacksonville Animal Care and Protective Services in bad shape.
He was anemic from flea infestation and extremely weak. Shelter workers feared he wouldn’t make it.
He was in desperate need of a blood transfusion. Fortunately, another young dog, a one-year-old Catahoula mix named Hula, was able to donate blood to help the pup.
Soon after, Hula was adopted by Cassi James and her 7-year-old daughter, Jaedyn. It was clear from the start that Hula was perfect for their family. “She is such a good dog, so tame,” James told the St. Augustine Record. “And she’s so good with Jaedyn.”
Hi! I’m Felicia. I’ve been told that my name means “happy” or “lucky,” which describes me to a T. I’m so happy that I’ve been lucky enough to be given…

What do you get when you cross a Dr V with an Apple pencil? (Aside from bad art, but that goes without saying.) A new set of cartoons, that’s what!
When I was in vet school, I was (rightfully) proud of my fledgling career choice. I shouted it from the rooftops: I’m about to be a vet! It’s so cool! Check it out! Tell me everything about your guinea pig!
But of course, with age comes both wisdom and boundaries, as well as an understanding that many people lack both. So without further ado, here are but three of the many reasons that I avoid telling people what I do unless absolutely necessary.
And before you ask, yes, all three have happened to me.
These are the big European red foxes, and yes, Weimaraners are gun dogs, but they have more applications in Europe than just “bird dogs.”
KittyKind.org recently shared this on Facebook:
“Lenny Abrahamson, the director of the incredible movie “Room”, was nominated for Best Director this year. As part of Lenny’s Oscar nomination gift bag, Freekibble.com and GreaterGood.org offered him the option of donating 10,000 Halo meals to the shelter of his choice.
He chose KittyKind! And we chose to give those meals to as many rescuers who feed community cats as we could possibly help.
This distribution is helping to feed OVER 1,000 COMMUNITY CATS! On Saturday, we worked together to make a difference for some of NYC’s biggest heroes.
When Halo asked if the cats were enjoying the food and if the donation was helpful? This was the response….
“Are you kidding? This probably the best food most of these cats have ever had. Not one single complaint from the rescuers, only tears of joy about the high quality of the food.”
