National Popcorn Day: Words on Wednesday

 While reading email it came to my attention that today is National Popcorn Day. Popcorn is one of my favorite snacks, (air popped) and after it's popped, I drizzle olive oil and add parmesan on it, delicious! 

Popcorn was also one of Angel Dakota's favorite snacks. That dog used to lose his mind when I made popcorn! (ALWAYS shared it with him as well). Levi hasn't tasted popcorn at all, and I think I will leave it that way, that was a special snack and memory of our sweet Dakota.

Hoping you enjoy this old video I found of Dakota when I used to tease him and sing my "Popcorn Song"...he knew how to spell the word! (Ignore my voice and enjoy!)

Donate to Animals in Honor of Betty White! Join The #BettyWhiteChallenge


"I want to be remembered as a lady who helped the animals."
- Betty White

From Pet Food Industry: "To honor actress, comedian and fellow pet and animal lover, Betty White, Purina and Petfinder join fans in taking the #BettyWhiteChallenge and making donations to animal organizations in her memory ahead of what would have been her 100th birthday, today January 17, 2022.

In the spirit of the #BettyWhiteChallenge, Purina is making donations to two organizations focused on bringing and keeping pets and people together:

  • Actors and Others for Animals – Betty White served as a director on the board of Actors and Others for Animals, an organization with a mission to eliminate pet overpopulation, ensure good care and protection for pet companions and provide referral and financial support for economically-challenged pet guardians.
  • Petfinder Foundation--The Petfinder Foundation works to prevent the euthanasia of adoptable pets by giving grants to shelters and rescue groups throughout North America. Purina owns and operates Petfinder, the largest online, searchable database of animals who need homes, and is a longstanding partner of the Petfinder Foundation, which operates independently of Petfinder.

Purina and Petfinder are encouraging fans and fellow pet lovers to join the challenge by donating $5 to one of Betty’s favorite charities or a local pet shelter or animal rescue organization."

When Lenny and I adopted Roary we originally learned about him on Petfinder. Wag Animal Rescue had rescued him. When Lenny went to see him first to see if he was a good fit he was at the Livonia Petsmart.

As a result, I  donated to Petfinder, Petsmart Charities and Wag Animal Rescue (which I set up as a monthly recurring donation). Can't think of a better way to honor the amazing Betty White!
