KKBN Pet of The Week(10.06.15)


Chip is a very loyal, kind and brave German Shepherd who had a rough go of it first round in life.

I adopted him two years ago as a special needs a German Shepherd.  At the age of two, he already had lost partial vision in one eye, had neurological damage that makes his right ear stand straight up all the time, and was missing a few teeth.

Chip used to not want to go off the front porch But he quickly learned to run around the front acre with his sister Lily, a black lab.

Last Thursday Chip had another challenge, due to an infection behind his good eye.  He bravely got through emergency surgery and is recovering now.  We don’t know what the prognosis is for the vision in his good eye yet,  but with his brave character, keen sense of smell, great ears, and the help of his sister, we expect he will be back on guard dog duty, enjoying life very soon.

Do One Act of Kindness on World Smile Day!

Image result for smile quotes

The first Friday of October each year marks World Smile Day, a day to do one act of kindness and make someone crack a smile!

The day was founded in 1999 by Harvey Ball creator of the now famous yellow smiley face, when he thought his logo was becoming too commercial and losing its real meaning, he organized the day to recognize that a smile knows no religion or politics and that we should all spread a little happiness.  And after all, it doesn’t take much effort to smile!

When Harvey died in 2001, the Harvey Ball World Smile Foundation was created not just to honor his memory but to sponsor World Smile Day and raise money through donations and the licensing of the smiley face for charities that often receive little recognition.

Now in its seventeenth year, 2015 looks to be another big one for World Smile Day, with people all around the world cracking smiles, making the world a better place.

So … don’t just grin and bear it – give a real smile and spread a little kindness on World Smile Day!

Scott Lewis
I would like to nominate my hard working man, my boyfriend Scott! He holds a job most wouldn’t dream about doing…..he’s a garbage man! He wakes up at 3am to commute everyday, he works 10+ hours a day making it possible for me to stay home with our lil man Tyler. I’ve watched him work so hard to get to where he is at right now and I am so proud of him! He is a amazing father and boyfriend. Our son wants to be just like his daddy and seeing them together makes my heart melt.   We love you Scott! Thanks for everything you do everyday to make our life so happy:)
