For the next couple of days, we’ll be dogtoring at hospital, hospice and West Pines but first I have to practice my skills on the Ninja. After yesterday’s squirrel roundup, I think her blood pressure is a bit on the high side. I know mom’s was.
We probably won’t be able to respond as much as we’d like over the next few days, we will try to do our best. Thank you for all your kind comments regarding yesterday’s crazy goings on. PayPal is taking its sweet time responding to us. Mom topped off the day with a trip to the dentist to replace a crown that fell out over the weekend. Does she know how to live or what? Worse than that, I had to endure the dreaded water torture for today’s hospital rounds. Luckily I get over it when kind peeps say I’m handsome.
On a serious note, today is Purple Day, the international grassroots effort dedicated to increasing awareness about epilepsy worldwide. On March 26th annually, people from around the world are invited to wear purple and host events in support of epilepsy awareness. It is estimated that as many as 50 million peeps and 4% of dogs have epilepsy. By bringing awareness to this disease, those who participate with Purple Day events hope to bring much-needed info to those who desperately need it. There are many groups who can help with informational resources, like the Wally Foundation. Our good friend Olivia, from Knotty Toys for Good Dogs hosted a “silent” Auction for The Wally Foundation- canine epilepsy We hope you’ll check it out and support Olivia’s efforts to benefit The Wally Foundation. So get out there and rock your purple today, I know I will.
Live, love, bark! 🐾

Enjoy the dogtoring, sweet Sam, Elsa and Monika and have a relaxed Purple Day. We are kind of surrounded by purple always and will think of you on this special day. Pawkisses for a Happy and Relaxed week ahead🐾😽💞
Thank you, Binky. It’s good to think purple and out others.
Here’s to the dynamic duo and all the great, good works you do. And to purple as well . . . 🙂
Looking great, Sam! Now go forth and do good things!
We’ll give it the ole college try.
Sounds like Elsa met her match! You are so handsome, Sam!
She did, but not before she instilled the fear of poodles in that tree rat.
I just happened to be wearing purple, so I accidentally done good. Sam, you are wickedly handsome!
Thank you, luckily our uniforms are purple.
I do hope the Ninja is ok. Sorry about the water torture Sam, but as you say, it will help folks see just how handsome you are. See you when you get back. And sorry, I don’t have anything purple and we didn’t know anything about epilepsy awareness.
Thanks. The Ninja is [mostly] fine I guess, for a sister.
Enjoy your dogturing, Sam…and good luck with Elsa!
Rosy, Jakey & Arty
We had some good visits yesterday and hope for even more good ones today.
I hope that the Ninja never turns rogue.
Whaddu mean, she’s already rogue?
We are hope things quiet down for you all over there, and hope all the visits go well. ♥
Thanks. Quiet (with appropriate sleep) would be most welcome at this point. 😊
Such a great thing to do. All the best today. I don’t have anything purple. Good cause though.
Thanks, John. We appreciate your support.
Look forward to hearing about your latest adventures soon!
We had some amazing encounters yesterday. Mom is still trying to process one in particular at hospice. Luckily a tail wag for peeps helps them, words, probably not as much.
Visting hospice care is such an important part of Sam’s “job” <3
He seems to know that and does a good job. For the patients, their families and the staff. 💖
You guys are the best!
Now excuse me whilst I go change my top from blue to … wait a minute, periwinkle or lilac are variations of purple, no? If not, I can change anyway. I do have some bonafide purple 😉
Oh yes and wonderful colors too. Thanks for the support.
allthe good luck for the dogtoring and we hope the new crown will stay with your mom for a looong time…
Thank you. The dentist said it should, it’s just one more thing in a long line of ‘things’ we didn’t need to happen right now. 😊
We love that word dogtoring and the wonderful work you guys do, Now we need to find something purple in our wardrobes.
Excellent! The more support, the better. 😌
Have a wonderful time bringing smiles!!
Enjoy your dogtoring these next few days! Your Mom needs to be able to chill a little. Y’all do great things together! Happy Purple Day!!!
Thank you. She definitely needs to chill but ‘chillin’ isn’t in her cards this week. She’ll be fine, just a few hiccups right now.
You two do such wonderful things with your mom. Good for you.
Have a woof woof day. My best to your mom. ♥
Many thanks, Sandee. I do all the work, mom just drives me. 😇
