Win $100 dog treat contest!

Dog pals, if you've got really sad dog eyes and an irresistible begging face, you should enter this cool contest to win a gift card for $100 at any pet store on!

All you need to do is get your humans to post a photo on the Dogs n Deals Facebook page that H-mom takes care of for her work!

Madison can't win because of that "family isn't eligible" thing, but YOU could! Good luck! We'll vote for all of you!

Husky makes it home!

After Man-dad rescued that great big no-meal-missing Husky from the middle of Spanish River Road and took him to the Humane Society, H-mom got busy.

She put the dog's picture all over Facebook and tagged all her friends who do dog rescue. She posted his photo on the Facebook pages of other rescues in the area, just in case his family was looking for him. She called the police department in Boca Raton and in Pompano. She sent an email to Animal Control in Palm Beach County.

And then we waited. We all couldn't stop thinking about that great big old Husky. Sitting in the pound with Madison's Chicago Cubs collar on. H-mom said that collar should bring him luck.

Can you believe that this morning when H-mom opened her Facebook, there was a private message from the Tri-County Humane Society:

"He has been returned to his owner"

What amazing news! That wasn't where Man-dad took him, but they must have networked the news of his whereabouts to his family.

Then later, H-mom even got an email from the Co-ordinator of Palm Beach Animal Control asking for more info. She was more than happy to let them know the dog found his family!

Isn't it cool that all these people cared about the lost Husky?

H-mom said that the Cubs couldn't even win when Madison wore the collar, but the collar must have done some good because this story has a happy ending!

Man-dad saved a GREAT BIG lost Husky!

Man-dad was in Highland Beach, right at the border of Boca Raton, and he saw a beautiful big Siberian Husky in the middle of Spanish River Road. The dog was scared and confused and there was lots of traffic. A couple people had stopped but no one was really doing anything.

Man-dad pulled over, got out and picked the dog up (boy he is WELL FED!) and hoisted him into his truck so that he was safe. The dog had no collar and no tags. He put Madison's CUBS collar on the big guy.

Now what? We live in a condo with one big schnauzer, so no way we could take him home, even for a minute. Man-dad took him down to the Humane Society of Broward County on Griffin Road in Fort Lauderdale. This sucks: he has NO MICROCHIP.

This makes us feel TERRIBLE. But at least he isn't getting lost worse, or hit by a car. Or cooking in the heat with no water.

He is about 110 pounds, two blue eyes, friendly and needs to find his food bowl, which he obviously loves very very much.

Please share this around.

H-Mom put it all over Facebook. And South Florida Siberian Husky Rescue is sharing on Facebook. And lots of our other dog-loving friends.

His admit number at the Humane Society is A462282. He is on a five day hold. That's enough time to work some dog-magic, right?
