“Vulture puppy” gets a foster home

A Pit Bull puppy became quite famous in Greensboro, North Carolina when the local paper ran a picture of her tied to her dog house, surrounded by dozens of black vultures in the trees and on the ground around her. Usually vultures are frightened away by dogs so this was a strange situation. Somehow it doesn’t seem as if the little brown and white pup had called a meeting of large flesh-eating birds to discuss…

The Anatomy of Graying

I recently aged 44 and while I’ve never been one overly preoccupied with age, my chest hair turned gray.  First of all, unlike Geraldo, I spare you a selfie proving it.

But there’s a bigger philosophical if not medical question involved here – why does hair gray differently?

I grayed first in my head hair which jokingly I attributed to my first cross county walk.  My beard came next but now it’s trickled its way down to my chest which I can only blame the PCH for.

But it’s only a few gray hairs which I hope means I still got game.  How and why does hair gray is my question today?

foundkittin-lgThanks to a microchip, a lost 6-month-old kitten is going home to her owner in New Mexico – who lives 2,300 miles from where the kitten was found!

According to Today.com, little Spice went missing on Halloween, when her owner believes the kitten slipped out the door during Trick-or-Treat night.

Spice turned up in Portland, Maine nearly a week later, in a duffle bag that also contained cat litter and food. Bob Watterson, who was shopping at the Catholic Charities Maine Thrift Store, noticed the bag was rustling.

He peeked inside and saw Spice. Not seeing collar or tags on the little cat, he took her home for a few days to care for her before taking her to the Animal Refuge League in Westbrook, Maine.

COLOR LOVE // Lucite Green

1. Oh Snap Leather Journal, Urban Outfitters  //  2. Knitted Slouch Hat, Zara  //  3. Weekender Slip Thru Watch, Timex  //  4. Atomic Aqua Table Lamp, CB2  //  5. Striped Baby Cashmere Blanket, J.Crew //  6. Turquoise and Caicos Nail Polish, Essie  //  7. Stained Wood Bangle, Voz Collective  //  8. Tempered Glass iPhone Case, Free People  //  9. Standard Reusable Bag in Elephant Jade, Baggu

As we color nerds are all well aware by now, Pantone’s color of the year is Marsala, a deep, earthy red made for the warmer months. It’s wine-like without being too burgundy, and rich without being too bold. It’s a nice color and all, but there are other choices from their Spring 2015 Report to which I’m much more drawn – specifically Glacier Gray (a classic pale gray) and Custard (a sweet, subtle yellow). Those of you who read here often enough or know me in person are likely rolling your eyes (“wow, Melissa likes the yellow and the gray the best, shocker.”). And this, my friends, is why I decided to go against the predictable choices for this edition of Color Love, and instead feature a color from Pantone’s spring report that is quite out of the box for me: Lucite Green.

Normally, I shy far away from this pastel-with-a-punch sort of hue. I own zero articles of clothing in the mint, aqua, or seafoam family, nor is there a piece of decor in my home with even the slightest accent of this color. But something about it caught my eye, and I thought it would be a fun challenge to see if I could find some great pieces in this shade that I’d maybe even love. It turns out, I found quite a few, as seen above. I’m pretty sure I’d wear that slouchy knit hat time and time again, even well beyond when winter’s evil clutches release me from their grasp and I can frolic in the sunshine again. I’m also a huge fan of that gorgeous tempered glass iPhone case. You may not be my type, Lucite Green, but I’m majorly crushing on you right now. And I hope to see a lot more of you come March, when lighter, brighter colors start showing their faces on the regular again.

What about you guys? What are your thoughts on Lucite Green? What’s your favorite shade from Pantone’s spring report?

Tailwaggers-Pet-StoreThe 2014 Holiday Kibble Drop “Feed It Forward Tour” stopped at Tailwaggers in Hollywood, CA on Thursday, December 18 to spread more holiday cheer. Actress Linda Blair’s organization, the Linda Blair Worldheart Foundation received 20,000 meals of Halo Vigor and Halo Spot’s Stew.

Linda Blair celebrated the Kibble Drop with Mr. and Mrs. Santa Paws at Tailwaggers along with some very happy pups and customers! We suspect most of the pets were asking Mr. and Mrs. Santa Paws for homes at the top of their wishlists. We know how important nutrition is for helping pets find forever homes. GreaterGood.org Executive Director Liz Baker agrees, “A well-nourished dog is a happy dog, and that makes a dramatic difference when it comes to getting them out of the shelter and into a permanent, loving home.”

The 2014 “Feed it Forward Tour” is making 15 stops to deliver 500,000 healthy meals to pets in more than 30 shelters and rescues across North America. Halo, Freekibble.com, and GreaterGood.org are enjoying this fourth annual Holiday Kibble Drop. You enable us to donate more than 1.5 million meals a year. The Holiday Kibble Drop, part of the #HaloFeedItForward campaign, is just one part of that. When you share a photo of your pet on social media with #HaloFeedItForward, Halo donates a meal on your behalf to a pet in need.

We hope that the pets of the Linda Blair Worldheart Foundation find homes soon. Thank you for making it possible for us to fulfill some holiday wishes.
