Tallahassee Dog Event: Dog Wash to Benefit the Pups at Leon County Humane Society

It’s that time of year again!! Spring is quickly disappearing, and it is warm enough for dog washing.

The Leon County Humane Society (LCHS) yearly dog washes are in full swing! All funds raised in this season’s washes are used to pay medical expenses for the adoptable companions of the LCHS.

Out-U-Go! pitched in the afternoon of May 10, 2014, to wash doggies in the shelter’s shaded backyard. We had a blast sudsing up a bunch of soggy doggies!

For more info and a full listing of 2014 dog wash dates, visit Leon County Humane Society.


Meet the OUG! Tallahassee (Furry) Gang: The Von Doodle

Meet the Baroness Elsa Von Doodle, one of my favorite dogs…..EVER. She has a royal lineage and expects to be treated accordingly.

When her mom gets the salad spinner out, she comes a-runnin’! The baroness likes nothing better than sitting near the dinner table daintily munching her organic lettuce leaves!

Meet Mags, Lucky Lab in Tallahassee

Meet Tallahassee’s Luckiest Lab, Mags! [PHOTO]

Honestly? Is she the most adorable girl or what?

Maggie (or as we affectionately call her, Mags) is a beautiful 14-year-old yellow Labrador. We have the honor of caring for her when her parents need to travel.

Mags has a GREAT life! Her parents not only have wonderful taste in pet sitters (…wink!), they know a thing or two about providing an excellent home for this sweet girl. She is 14 and going strong…going on walks, chomping her Kong, munching through nutritious treats, and soaking up all the love her parents provide her!

Tallahassee Red Hills International Horse Trials adopt a dog weekend event

Meet Adoptable Tallahassee Pups at Red Hills Horse Trials!

Check out the wonderful adoptable pups our local animal rescue groups, including Big Dog Rescue, have available March 7-9 at the 2014 Red Hills Horse Trials. Enjoy the beautiful spring weather while getting to know some of the available pups that local rescue groups have lovingly fostered. Even if you are at maximum density in the dog department, this is a great opportunity to meet these groups, learn about volunteer programs, and donate! You can do this while enjoying a world-class horse show at the beautiful Elinor Klapp-Phipps Park! I ask you…does it get any better than this?

This is a leave-your-dog-at-home event so that adoptable dogs can strut their stuff without distraction…plus, it is best not to disturb horses and riders with a badly timed dog fit!

If you are interested in attending, visit Red Hills International Horse Trials.

George Tallahassee cat Maine Coon

Meet Tallahassee’s Gorgeous George, a Sweet & Gentle Maine Coon Cat

Meet gorgeous George, a Maine Coon cat that we have fallen in love with.

He is a gentle giant who lets his much smaller cat sisters run the show. He is laid back and super sweet.

His awesome Pet Parents have discovered his obsession with bubbles. He loves to watch them float by, and when the mood strikes, put the whammy on one.

Join OUG! Tallahassee at Florida Department of Corrections’ 4th Annual DC Doggie Dash

It’s that time of year again..the weather is just perfect for the 4th Annual DC Doggie Dash 5K and 1 mile fun run in beautiful Southwood! The Dash is March 15th and registration starts bright and early at 7:30am. Don’t miss the K-9 Unit demonstration at 10:30am. Proceeds will benefit the K-9 Units and Dog Obedience programs of the Florida Department of Corrections.

Since one of my own sweet pups graduated from one of the phenomenal DC dog obedience programs, this cause is near and dear to my heart. These programs give both the inmate and the dogs a second chance at life. Please check out the wonderful dogs available for adoption at Florida Department of Corrections’ Web site.

This is a leave-your-pups-at-home event so all of the attention is on the wonderful dogs ready for their forever homes. Visit this event’s listing for more info.

Please come out and show your support for the K-9 Units and the DC dog programs!


Meet Barkley, World Cup “Most Valuable Pup”

Meet our pal, Barkley, the World Cup “Most Valuable Pup”!! We’ve had the pleasure of watching this handsome devil grow up.

Barkley’s most favorite toy is his soccer ball–it’s almost as big as he is! He even head butts the ball like PelΓ© himself. Barkley makes for an impressive goalie despite his small stature!


The Zen of Buster

Buster literally has the best dog fits, EVER. His exuberance and natural sweetness are very special.

He is the embodiment of a favorite poem by Rumi about being truly happy. “Sell your cleverness and purchase bewilderment.”

We have thrown a tennis ball for Buster approximately 573 times so far, and each time we pick the ball up he is transfixed. His look of astonishment and expectation is both priceless and palpable.

He is a pleasure to be around, and that, my friends, is the Zen of Buster.
