Pharm Assistance Dog Program in Missouri

It's rare for me to be able to report good news about dogs in Missouri. So, my tail is really wagging right now.

I'm barking about the PHARM Dog program. PHARM stands for Pets Helping Agriculture in Rural Missouri. These folks pair farmers with disabilities with dogs who can assist with various tasks around the farm, such as herding livestock, opening gates, carrying buckets or tools.

A new program, they're just this year placing the first assistance dogs with farmers. A three year old Border Collie was the first and he now helps herd sheep and cattle on a northern Missouri farm for a farmer disabled in an accident. That farmer has agreed to give back to the PHARM program by raising a puppy for another farmer.

According to Jackie Allenbrand, a specialist with the Missouri AgrAbility Project and the founder of PHARM, the goal is to help farmers maintain their independance, and continue their ability to productively farm their land. Want to help? PHARM can use dogs, dog trainers, donated puppies and volunteer puppy raisers. They could also use donations of dog food and venterinary medical supplies.

For more information on the PHARM Dog program contact Jackie Allenbrand at 816-279-8558 ext 1026. Visit the Missouri AgrAbility Project on the web.

West Highland Terrier Dog Jewelry Gifts

My best friend Judy had a Skye Terrier dog for several years. The sun rose and set with that dog and it could do no wrong. Then Judy's husband convinced her to get a Westie as a companion. Oh my! Judy's head was turned in a major way. She, nor anyone else, could resist the little white imp.

I hope my own love for this wonderful dog breed shows in my West Highland White Terrier dog breed jewelry. Shown above is one of our handcrafted For Love of a Dog jewelry pieces dedicated to the Westie. This West Highland White Terrier dog breed necklace showcases one of our little dog sculptures, a Westie, of course. In this dog necklace I've combined it with rose pink rhodonite gemstones including a nice fat heart, plus nice natural white marble. Pink not your color, then take a look at our other Westie necklaces.
For Love of a Dog jewelry is always handcrafted, always unique and one of a kind. Thoughtful, cherished dog lover gifts!

Pit Bull Dog Breed Pin Brooch Gift

One of my favorites quotations is from Joe Gores who said: Old age means realizing you will never own all the dogs you wanted to. I live with the growing knowledge that is all too true. The longer I live, the more dogs I meet. The more dog breed jewelry I create, the more dog breeds I become familiar with. My list of dogs that I want to add to our family just keeps growing. The Staffordshire Terrier, or Pit Bull, is definitely in the top five on that list and there's no doubt in my mind that some day there will be a bully in our critter crew.

I don't even have a Pit Bull, yet I wear one of my own Staffordshire Terrier Pit Bull dog breed pins quite frequently. It's a great conversation starter to do my bit at increasing awareness that this dog breed is the victim of myth and misnomer. That's photo of our artisan sculpture pin above. Gorgeous three dimensional detail, if I do say so myself.

If you have a Pit Bull dog lover on your holiday shopping list, this would be a unique, rare, thoughtful gift. If you're involved in bully rescue, this is a fantastic way to show your support for these fabulous dogs.
If you look at the little photo here on this blog that is my ID photo, you'll see me on a swingset glider with my grandpa's dog, Dinkle. Dinkle was a Staffordshire Terrier, my boon companion, and a pretty wonderful babysitter.

BAD RAP Anniversary Celebration

BAD RAP's 10 Year Anniversary - History is Made Celebration
Photo Exhibit and Band Concert
December 5, 2009
6 - 10 pm at the Takara Saki Factory in Berkeley, CA.

BAD RAP has invited several renowned photographers to show their work in a ONE NIGHT ONLY exhibit that captures some of the best media moments in pit bull history.

OWN A PIECE OF HISTORY! As part of their ten year retrospective, photos of BADRAP dogs and their caretakers captured by some of the country's most talented photographers will be on display for one night only. These images have been widely published in newspapers and magazines as the world is introduced to a more compassionate view of pit bulls. Many will be available for sale at the event, in time for your holiday giving. Contributing artists:
Carol Guzy's Washington Post series, Shelter for the Scarred,
AP photog Eric Risberg's collection of Vick dog photos,
AP photog Jeff Chiu's Missouri bust dog series
and many others.

Many of the framed photos will be available for sale at affordable prices, ready to take home with you at the end of the night. Bring your gift giving allowance!

Meet some of BADRAP's dogs and score a dog-signed copy of 'the' Sports Illustrated. Good company, great art, complimentary sake tasting. AND at 8:30pm, the woman who is owned by the one and only Jonny Justice takes the stage with her upright bass to belt out tunes with SF darlings, Thee Merry Widows.

This is a Dress Your Best event. No dogs please, but supervised kids are welcome.

BADRAP is a small and busy non-profit organization of pit bull owners, trainers, educators, rescuers, and supporters. BAD RAP evolved out of a desire to respond to the difficult issues facing this misunderstood breed. Visit their website for more information about this event, as well as their ongoing programs. Be sure to take a look at the Michael Vick dogs who are now ready for adoption.

Though we can't travel to California to attend, all of us at For Love of a Dog Jewelry will be celebrating with BADRAP in spirit. What a howling good job they do!

Big Dog Discrimination

I'm a country dog. I was born a country dog in Virginia. I'm still a country dog here in Missouri. I figure I'll go to the rainbow bridge a country dog. Other than vacations, I've never been in a city (I don't count small towns where the vet's office always is) and these days I figure I'm awfully lucky. I have a huge fenced yard of about about an acre to play in and patrol and nobody has ever said a word about my size. I guess I forgot to say I'm a big country dog. Since I weigh about 70 pounds, by some standards I'm a very big dog.

At least I'd say so after hearing about New York City. Did you know that New York City just enacted a new policy about the size of dogs. Effective this past May, people living in public housing can't have a dog that weighs more than 25 pounds. People are having to find new housing or surrender their dogs to shelters. There are over 175,000 public housing units in New York City.

Now, I guess I understand that landlords anywhere can decide if pets are allowed to live in their property, as well as how big those pets can be. I mean, this is America (you know what I mean.) But what I heard is that this was a move by New York City to target what they call dangerous dogs. Yeah, you know, pit bulls, dobermans and rottweilers.

Dangerous dogs. I've got news for New York City. I've met some dogs under 25 pounds who were dog gone dangerous. It doesn't have to do with the breed of the dog. It's the owner of the dog. It's the dog's people. How many ways can I say this? If people shirk their responsibility to socialize and train their dogs, it's the dogs who suffer. Always. It's not their fault and it has nothing to do with their breed. How many dogs will have to die in a shelter because New York City public housing officials don't know the difference between a pit bull, doberman, rottweiler and a dangerous dog.

Besides, I bet New York City is full of dangerous people. A lot more dangerous people than dangerous dogs. And I think some of them are making the rules for public housing.

Basenji Dog Breed Jewelry Gifts

As you all know, I work at For Love of a Dog Jewelry as the head of the Security Department. I've been at this job pretty much my whole life, so I woof from years of experience. My motto has always been to bark softly and carry a big stick. To tell you the truth, I'm not much of a barker at all. What is the point of all that yapping? (Jeffie, you know who I'm woofing about here) Anyway, the Basenji dog breed is definitely one of my favorites. No senseless barking!

If you love a Basenji or know someone who does, you really should fetch this Basenji dog breed pin for them for Christmas. Like the other dog breed pins at For Love of a Dog Jewelry, this is entirely handmade and true to dog breed standards. And this Basenji dog is really quite handsome. If your dog lover friend is not a pin wearer, how about a Basenji dog breed bracelet. It's handcrafted, too, and dog gone pretty.

Why settle for something made in China when you can have dog jewelry made by an artist right here in the Missouri Ozarks! All of our jewelry is made by dog lovers for dog lovers.

Chinese Crested Dog Jewelry Gifts

Now I consider myself a nudist since I run around with no clothes 99% of the time. Frankly, I only need a coat or aweater if there's a freak blizzard or something. Why? because I am furry. And when I say I'm furry, I mean really very furry. Mama says it's the Chow Chow in my background. Whatever it is, suffice it to say that even naked, I'm covered if you know what I mean.

However, get a load of this dog breed! Until I saw a Chinese Crested dog, I guess I didn't know what naked really meant!

If your person wears jewelry, you've just got to give Santa Paws a nudge to check out this barkalicious pin from For Love of a Dog. Woof! It is entirely made by hand begining with a hand carved sculpture, then a mold is made and these sweet babies are handcast, finished, and air brushed. This Chinese Crested dog pin is very three dimensional and true to AKC and UKC dog breed standards. Did I mention that it's howling good beautiful, too.

Check out the dog lovers jewelry at For Love of a Dog. They've got dog breed jewelry, cat jewelry, horse jewelry, and even mutt jewelry. My real favorites all include dog bones, of course!
