38 Inspiring Tales of Heroic Dogs #Loyal #TLCBookTours

The words hero and devoted seem to go hand in hand when I think of dogs - all dogs of all breeds, ages and size.

I recently had the opportunity to join a book tour about an amazing and inspiring book called, Loyal 38 Inspiring Tales of Bravery, Heroism, and the Devotion of Dogs by Rebecca Ascher-Walsh

About Loyal

• Hardcover: 160 pages
• Publisher: National Geographic (March 7, 2017)


This special collection of dog stories and photographs features four-legged heroes who have worked side by side with soldiers, searched the wreckage of natural and man-made disasters, changed families' lives through emotional support, and administered aid around the world and at home in the United States. Heartwarming photographs and touching anecdotes bring to life thirty-eight caring canines who have served the people who mean the most to them, from a German Shepherd who leads a blind man on his marathon training mission to a belly rub-loving Sheltie who supports at-risk youth in the classroom. For anyone who has experienced the extraordinary affection of a dog, Loyal is a lasting celebration of the joys of canine companionship.
Loyal book review about 38 heroic dogs and their owners
I love to read stories that celebrate the joys and companionships of dogs. It's amazing to learn all the ways a dog can be trained to help in times of disaster and tragedy. 

Loyal is a nice, easy read with a beautiful colored photograph of each dog to go along with their story. These are dogs of all breeds, sizes and backgrounds. Here are a few examples of some stories:

Bandit - A European Great Dane rescued from a puppy mill with a severe leg deformity. Now registered as a therapy dog, Bandit visits and connects with soldiers on suicide watch and those that struggle with pain and injuries due to war.

Alli - An Australian Cattle Dog Mix from Washington is a rescue who is now trained to locate endangered species to be identified and studied. She is what you would call a master wildlife CSI detective who scours the wilderness for evidence of rare animals to protect.

Andy - A Golden Retriever from Indiana, a trained service and therapy dog who saved his neighbor's life. One night while in his yard, he began barking loudly and jumped the 4ft. fence, his owner found him lying beside their elderly neighbor who had fallen in the snow. "I would have died 20 feet from my house without him." she says. "He's my hero."You can see him pictured below.

My Thoughts on the Book

I loved this book for so many reasons! It was an easy read so I was happy to pass this along to my daughters who are 18 and 13 to read. The format was simply broken up by short stories accompanied by beautiful colored photographs. Lastly, it proved that any dog no matter what walk of life or background they may come from,  can truly make a difference in this world!

A Farewell To Sugar The Golden Retriever

Today we are taking a break from our usual Wordless Wednesday post to share a few special words about our dear Golden friend, Sugar from Golden Woofs who crossed the rainbow bridge last week.

Although she lived across the country and we never got to meet her and her mom, we feel like we did. Her posts and photos brought us so much Golden sunshine, we are truly going to miss seeing them.

Just last July, we were honored to help Sugar celebrate her 15th Birthday on Instagram and what a fun celebration it was. It was so clear to see how many lives she touched and how much joy she brought to others.

Thank you Rosalyn for sharing your beautiful Golden girl with us, we will forever remember that smile and will always see the good and beauty in every single day.

How #NutriVet Helps My Dog With Hip Dysplasia & Arthritis

Our Golden Lab, Maggie was born with hip dysplasia and as a result of that she has developed arthritis in her joints.

Although surgery wasn't an option for her, we have maintained her condition by keeping her weight on the lower side and making sure she gets regular exercise without over doing it.

Having just turned seven years old a few months ago we have noticed that she is moving a little slower, whether she's getting up after a nap or climbing the stairs - she definitely does so at a slower pace.

Last month we were given the chance to try out a hip and joint supplement for Maggie and we thought this would be a great time to offer her a natural supplement and see if we notice a change.

She loves the liver flavor chewables so much that she thinks they are a treat just for her and will even do tricks for one. I love how easy they are to give her, no pills to try and stick down her throat or hide in a treat.

These chewable tablets are regular strength which provide 500mg of glucosamine, 100mg chondroitin and vitamin C and 10mg MSM to help maintain healthy canine joint function and connective tissue. 

Ingredients That Help Maintain Healthy Hips & Joints


Glucosamine HCL is the key building block for making cartilage. Recent reports in veterinary journals have validated the benefits of glucosamine in maintaining joint health and supporting mobility and activity in dogs of all ages.

Chondroitin Sulfate protects existing cartilage and slows its break down.

Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is important for the formation of bone and cartilage.

Manganese, Copper and Zinc are essential in biochemical reactions that help form cartilage.

Maggie's Results

Just in the past week I have noticed Maggie going up the stairs more freely, usually she would pause half way up before reaching the top. She loves following me downstairs to do laundry and such so this is a huge plus! 

I believe in treating ailments and maintaining my dog's health as naturally as possible and I'm so happy I can do that with Nutri-Vet, my only regret is that I didn't start her on this supplement when she was younger.
