Jasmine was featured in the Deseret News Newspaper!

So... funny story.  A long time ago, I was was asked to do an interview with a Utah newspaper who wanted to feature Jasmine.  I did it, but then nothing ever came of it.   I emailed the reporter a couple times over the following months and inquired if she knew when they would be publishing the article.   But the answer was "we'll let you know".  Eventually, I forgot about it and figured it wasn't going to happen.

So then fast forward to July 10th...  several of my friends start tagging me in posts on Facebook that show My Favorite Pup Jasmine's picture on the cover!   They FINALLY decided to publish the article about Jasmine! (I thought they had changed their mind!  But I guess they just had to wait for a slow news day... before they ran the story about a trick dog.) They didn't even tell me that the article came out last Saturday.

So- here's a cute little article about me and Jaz.  The quotes aren't exactly what I said... but oh well.  Close enough!

Take Your Dog To Work Day

My dog Jasmine is multi-talented.  She can't decide if she wants to work in a grocery store or in an office.  Which do you think she would be better suited for?

Customer Service:

or Administrative Work:


Don't forget, this Friday, June 23rd is "Take Your Dog To Work Day"!!  

Send me a picture of your dog on Jasmine's Facebook page!  :)

A Dog's Purpose

Chewy and Jasmine were part of my viewing audience!  I got excited when I was asked to do a movie review for "A Dog's Purpose"!    We even received a special advanced copy!  (It will be released in stores on Blue Ray and DVD on Tues. May 2nd)

If you haven't heard of it yet, it's based on the excellent book "A Dog's Purpose" by  W. Bruce Cameron.

This is a movie that will tug on your heartstrings.  I'm not sure how much to write without having to give spoiler alerts.  Just so you're not mad at me #SpoilerAlert.  (There- now I'm safe!)  ;)
It's a cool story.  It's from the dog's point of view.  The main story is about a dog named Bailey (the golden retriever on the cover).  And his adventures with his boy Ethan.  The story follows their life together.  And then (hope this isn't a spoiler alert).... ***stop reading if you don't want to know!!**
(Or scroll to the end to enter the give-away to win a copy of the movie for yourself!)

(Random picture of Chewy to prevent accidentally reading the rest.)

I won't say too much about about the movie, because I think you should watch it for yourself.  But after Bailey's life is over, he is reincarnated as another dog... this time a German Shepherd named Ellie!  The storyline follows his life and the difference he makes in the life of his humans.  It's a really sweet story.  Especially the end.  (But again, I don't want to give anything away.)

I was watching the extras when they interviewed W. Bruce Cameron (the author).  And there is an interesting back story to how this book came about.  His girlfriend's dog had just passed away, and she was heartbroken.  They were driving, and this whole story came to him.  He said in the past when he's written a novel, it comes a little at a time.  Bruce said it was like this whole story was downloaded into his brain.  And he just told her the whole story for about 1 1/2 hours while they were driving.  

Anyone who is an animal lover will really appreciate this story.  Bruce also said that with his other books, he's had fans.  But he's never had fans like this.  (Dog lovers are a very loyal breed of humans in my opinion.)  

So- all in all, we give this movie 2 paws up.  :)

A Dog's Purpose Book

So we're really looking forward to the weekend!  

Jaz is excited to test out her doggy cookbook! 

She's a big help in the kitchen!  ;)   (Well, mostly eating... but she would cook if she knew how!)

No automatic alt text available.  
And I'm excited about "A Dog's Purpose"!   
The Blue-Ray and DVD are getting released on Tues. May 2nd.  So this is my weekend to catch up on reading the book!  I always like to read the book before the movie comes out. 

I had a friend recommend this book to me a year ago, but I'm just now getting around to reading it!  I have been forewarned to have tissues ready.  But my friend told me it's a very sweet story.

I will do a review of the movie once I see it!  I'll keep you posted!  Have any of you read it?  What do you think?

On my next blog post, I'm going to have a rafflecopter give-away, so one of you can win a copy of the DVD too!   Stay tuned my friends!!  :)

*I was sent me a box with these products in them, and asked me to do an honest review of their product.  All the opinions posted are my own.  I do not receive any compensation for doing product reviews.  
And I only will review products that I would be willing to give my own dogs.
