Adopt Liberty Belle a Black Pit Bull Dog in Kansas City

This gorgeous girl is Liberty Belle.  She's a 3 1/2 year old Pit Bull Terrier mix.  She was transferred to Wayside Waifs from another shelter that was running out of space.  These days she's one of the Waif Runners and she loves doing tricks.

Here's Liberty Belle's adoption letter:
I bet you're here because you saw that gorgeous picture of me, right? Well guess what?! I am pleased you stopped by! My name as you can see is Liberty Bell. I'm a 3 year old American Pit Bull Terrier mix, and let me just say I'm an energetic sweetheart!

I was transferred in from another shelter because they were running out of space, but I just know I'll find my forever home soon! Since I haven't been in a home for a while I'll definitely need some reminding on my manners while in a home, but if you'll have patience with me we can do it together! 
I bet you can tell by looking at me that I have a lot of muscle. Here at Wayside I'm on the team of Waif Runners! They say if you want an endorphin rush to run with me! I'm awesome, focused, have plenty of speed AND endurance! I'm all business on a run, which shows how amazing I am on a leash, even when there are barking dogs I'm more focused on the finish line. 
I do know a few tricks too! I know sit, down and even how to stand on my back legs and walk just like a person! They say I need to meet all new family members before going home, but I can't wait! Don't forget to bring any canines you already have to meet me too!

Well, that's all for now. I can't wait to get started on my new life!

XOXO,  Liberty Belle

Puppy Dog Version This Is How We Do by Katy Perry | Dog Song Saturday

Not only is it Saturday, so time for a dog song at Talking Dogs, it is also summer and we're feeling silly.  Blame it on Mother Nature and her scorching temperatures.  

After we've done a rain dance or two, we just feel like laughing.  Join us with the puppy version of the Katy Perry hit This Is How We Do.  Yep, another bark out loud parody from The Pet Collective.

Don't sit or heel (bow chicka bow wow).  Just grab a dog.  Relax and enjoy This Is How We Do - the doggie version. Then fetch more dogs songs.  You'll be surprised at how many we've found!

Tennis Ball Dog Jewelry at For Love of a Dog

Yesterday I announced the August giveaway winner of a copper Fetch Dog Bone Necklace.  This giveaway provoked a lot of interest and special orders, including one from someone intending to use it as memorial jewelry.  Their pittie, Rocky, loved tennis balls, so I personalized the dog bone with Rocky's name instead of fetch.  What a wonderful idea!

It's not only retrievers who love a good game of fetch, plus many of my jewelry pieces can be personalized as memorial jewelry.  In fact, any of these bracelets and necklaces can be personalized with your dog's name.

The tennis ball dog bone bracelet shown at top is a festive choice in hot summer colors.  Red coral gemstone beads are combined with some wild handmade lampwork beads and porcelain tennis balls.  They frame the FETCH stamped silver dog bone. I love the large paw print lobster claw clasp and I (heart) My Dog / paw print double sided charm.

Shown above is a similar bracelet with jet black and citrine crystals combined with beautiful floral lampwork beads.  Love the black with those yellow tennis balls!

For those who prefer vintage style, I suggest you fetch the bracelet above.  A daisy lampwork bead, crystals, snow quartz gemstone beads, sweet yellow flower, plus a very cool floral brass toggle clasp.  And tennis balls, of course!

Here's a Fetch Tennis Ball Dog Bone Necklace like our giveaway, but in gold.

Remember, most of my jewelry are one of a kind pieces, so if you see something you like snag it now!  Need something personalized?  Don't be afraid to ask!
