KKBN Pet of The Week(11.20.18)

Hello This is my Dog Lucky Luccino But we call him Lucc for short. He’s 7 and it’s the cutest dog in the world.  My name is Benjamin Delatorre. I’m a disabled individual and I found lucc in 2016 on my front door step when I got home from work he was 2 lbs and extremely dehydrated and his fur was extremely matted and turns out my neighbors friend abandoned him… also we found out later, he was severally abused and mistreated, but since then I have helped him get over his fear and anxiety and got his weight up, Lucc is my best friend and I can’t be away from him for long and vice versa, at night he sleeps in my arms, it helps with his anxiety and mine as well. To me Lucc is my Dog but also my buddy and my son. The day I found him changed my life in a very good way.

Christopher Garrison

Christopher is a firefighter with the US Forest Service & has been working hard this fire season to fighting the Spring Fire in CO as well as the Ferguson Fire and is currently stationed on the Woolsey Fire in Southern Ca. He spends weeks camping on the front lines, working hard in the heat and the smoke to stop forward progression of the fire and provide structure protection where it’s needed. He comes home covered in soot and grime and he gets 48 hours to catch up on rest and spend time with his family before he is sent out again on a new assignment. I’ve never seen someone work as hard as he does, all with a positive attitude. He loves his job and loves being able to help others during their time of need. Thank you to ALL of our firefighters working hard to stop our lands from burning!

KKBN Pet of The Week(11.13.18)

I would love to submit my baby boy blue for this weeks Pet of The Week 🙂 Blueberry  Cloud Travao is his full name . He’s adventurous and a little bit wild but also loves to cuddle on my pillow every night. He purrs really loud and always has one of his paws touching my hand before he starts snoozing. He loves play time with dad and his favorite dinner is tiki cat wet food – any flavor will do he’s not picky! His tail is bushy and he loves making new friends on the block while mom & dad are at work. He also loves play time with his sister minx and his brother cowboy!

Love always ,
Kayla (blue’s mommy)

My husband Randy Aitken is the absolute most hard working man I know!! He does plumbing by day and just about everything else for the rest of the day! Whether its mechanical work, cutting wood, yard work, house work or just cooking dinner he still makes time to be the best father I know to our 4 children (even coaches both their soccer teams) and he makes it a point to do or say something to me that makes me fall for him all over again everyday! I just hope he knows how much he’s appreciated and loved!
