At least 10 reasons to adopt a Chi (there are way more than 10, but let’s start here…)

July 18, 2012

In no certain order…

1. They are the PERFECT size if you live in a small space and/or like to travel a lot – nothing fits under that airplane seat better than a Chi.

2. Want a 5 pound bag of kibble to last longer than a week? You […]

Lucy Loo – I sure do love you!!

July 16, 2012

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of taking Lucy to meet a potential adopter. On either side of that meeting, I was able to spend a little time with her first letting her just have some peace and sleep in Lily’s car seat and then letting her take […]

Like a Chi on the OAS website?

July 16, 2012

A special thank you to Amy – the amazing Volunteer Program Manager at OAS – for helping me capture (and starring in) a sweet video of Justin showing his lovey side and for helping him set up perfectly in the light for his money shot. Justin is still available […]

I was giving some thought about how to get the word out about my blog today. And while I truly appreciate the nine people from FB for “like”ing the site, I have a feeling I’m going to need a few more fans/regulars to actually find homes for […]

A word about OAS

July 1, 2012
