New Name for the One-Eye Beast

In honor of my favorite time of year and love for Halloween,
I am testing out a new nickname for Bella...

Adopt a Less Adoptable Pet: Tenchi needs some Love!

Greetings peeps and paws.

It's Adopt-A-Less-Adoptable Pet week and we at the SWD house really want to get a beautiful girl named Tenchi - out of the PAWSAtlanta shelter and into a furever home!

Tenchi is a sweet lady - believed to be a lab mix - looks like she could have some pittie or rottie mixed in her pedigree as well.

Sadly, Tenchi falls under the umbrella of *less adoptable* because of her dark fur and because her mix of breeds. Also, at four, some deem Tenchi too old to adopt. I almost made that same mistake with Blu. Eight years later... and my boy is going strong at a spry 12 years old. Let's give this special gal the same chance at happiness!

Check out the beautiful, pawsome Tenchi, seen in the video here.

Don't you just love her!

Once each day this week I will be Tweeting (with hashtag #LAPW) and Sharing info on Tenchi and other *less-adoptable* pets on Facebook and Twitter to help them find a home. I’m also posting this link to the BlogPaws Be the Change for Pets Facebook Page. At the end of the week, Be the Change for Pets will tabulate everyone’s blog posts, Tweets and Facebook shares so we can see our global impact!

The last Be the Change Challenge raised over 50,000 lbs of pet food and supplies for pets in need. Now let’s get together and raise the bar for *less adoptable* pets!

Let's do it for Tenchi!

SWD is back for a good cause: Write a blog, Feed a Dog!

While renovations aren't quite complete at the SWD house, we've returned early to help our shelter buds everywhere.

Because of this posting, a shelter gets a 20-pound bag of dog food! That's right, from now through Sept. 19th, if you have a blog of any kind, all you have to do is write a post and Pedigree will donate a 20-pound bag of food to an animal shelter!

It's really that simple - Write a blog, Feed a dog!

All you have to do is: include the bullets listed here and add the direct link to your blog post to the Blog Hop below.

* Each year, more than 4 million dogs end up in shelters and breed rescue organizations. Pedigree created The PEDIGREE Adoption Drive to help shine a spotlight on the plight of these homeless dogs.

* This year the PEDIGREE Adoption Drive is raising awareness for homeless dogs by donating a bowl of food to shelter dogs for everyone who becomes a "Fan" or "Likes" the PEDIGREE Adoption Drive on Facebook. So far more than 1 million bowls have been donated.

* Special for BlogPaws West: For each blog that posts about the PEDIGREE Adoption Drive through September 19, PEDIGREE will donate a bag of its new Healthy Longevity Food for Dogs to shelters nationwide. It's simple: Write a post, help a dog.

* Thursday, September 16 through Sunday, September 19, the Pedigree BlogPaws bloggers will host a Blog Hop to help raise awareness for the "Write a post, help a dog" effort.

Let's make Pedigree donates tons of dog food to shelters everywhere!

Power to the paws y'all!
