We came across an artist that uses her talented skills for an amazing cause, dog adoption. Sarolta Ban's project "Help Dogs with Images", takes ordinary pictures of shelter pups and works her photoshop magic to make the photographs a work of art, bringing out each pups personality through surreal scenes. Each pup has their own story and come from all over the world, you can actually help the cause and upload a picture to Sarolta's project page of a dog that is looking for a home. So far, four out of the ten rescue dogs have found their furever homes and we are keeping our paws crossed that EVERY pup in this series finds a loving home. These photos are truly amazing and if we could we would take them all in, but we are optimistic that with the help of Saolta they will touch the hearts of many people looking to adopt.
It’s been a little more than a week now & we apologize to all our fans & customers for staying off the radar. We have lost our beloved pretty girl Nina. As you can imagine we are in total & utter heartbreak but are very thankful for the 17 AMAZING years we had with her. Although she’s not physically w/ us anymore, her memory & inspiration will continue to be a part of our lives and Bark4Green.
Thinking about hitting South Florida? Well its the perfect time of year to do so! Check out some of our favorite Florida getaways:
1. Miami, FL: Lowes Hotel- Woofie Weekends at Lowes Its a paw-some time of year to hit up SoBe, weather you want to have brunch al fresco on Lincoln Road with fido or enjoy a quiet day at the Park, make sure you bring some water and a frisbee or toy!
2. Key West, FL:
The Chelsea House: The guest rooms at this gorgeous historic inn range is just two blocks for the famous Duval Street. They don't have a pet wight limit but they do have a $25 pet fee pet night for each pet. Make sure you call in advance to reserve your room because they have particular rooms that allow pets.
The Reach A Waldorf Astoria Resort: Escape to the beach or explore Old Town & Duval Street. Its a beautiful resort right on the white sandy beach. They do have a pet policy so make sure you read up on that before booking your room. This was one of the few hotels we found that does not have a weight policy (which usually is 25 lbs or less) which really stinks, because where are we suppose to leave our big dogs? When we travel we take all 3 of our pups so its really important that we find a great hotel in a great location that doesn't have a weight limit.
Even though we are approaching Fall, we think traveling with your pets could be a year round affair. Not only is the temperature becoming cooler, but we don't have to worry about those pesky bug bites or hot pavement on their sensitive paws (which btw, we like to either use doggy wipes or paw conditioning treatment for dry paws). Fall is the perfect time for a quick weekend getaway & why not bring fido with you? We put together a few of our fave spots to visit & everyday we'll be sharing our top spots along with pet friendly hotels & things to do with your pet. So stay tuned to our posts!
