Share Your Treasure to Win $100 Home Deopt Gift Card From GAF Roofing

Share What You Treasure Most

A few years ago when we were living in a loft apartment waiting for the house renovations to be completed, a tornado brushed by us and took the roof over our kitchen with it.  I remember telling Paul, “It’s raining so hard  it sounds like it’s raining inside.” And he said,  “That’s because it is!” With Gracey already tucked safely in the bedroom, I bolted out into the kitchen with rain pouring down on me and lightning flashing everywhere. I grabbed Gracey’s food and my laptop and dashed back into the living room. Later, Paul teased  me by asking what if he wanted a snack. I told him he was on his own and could fend for himself.   We both knew the pecking order; Gracey first.

Compare and Contrast How The Tiniest Tiger Began

How The Tiniest Tiger Began

Over the last three weeks, we have spent some time reflecting on Gracey’s life with us and I couldn’t help but reminisce about  the beginning of our The Tiniest Tiger community that started out on our facebook page. In those first days we talked a lot about the differences and similarities between Gracey and her big cat cousins.  One of our first photo albums on Facebook was Compare and Contrast. Do you remember this post?

The  Keep Love Strong advertising campaign that began last  November  features heart-warming ads inspired by real stories. The campaign has been so well received that Iams created  this contest to find the very best Love Tails about the special connections people share with their animals.  These commercials really show the deep connection and the importance of the human animal bond.  I like them all but this is one of my favorites.

This is one of my favorites:

Daily Kibble’s 26 Acts of Kindness to Share the Love

Ann Curry sparks 26 Acts of Kindness Movement

Ann Curry, NBC News correspondent asked herself, after the tragic massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School, what

she could do. And she thought performing 26 acts of kindness, one act for each child and teacher who lost their life that day, would be a small gesture to honor the victims.

Ann then invited everyone to join her by sharing the idea on social media. Within a few days  the hashtag “#26acts” was trending on Twitter and a “26 Acts of Kindness” Facebook page began to grow. People began to tweet Curry with photos and descriptions of their acts of kindness such as paying for parking meters, tolls and leaving larger than usual tips.

Curry wrote on the NBC News website that the movement is a way to “help heal us all.”

Pets Add Life Childrens Poetry Contest

5th Annual National Children’s Pet Poetry Contest

cat poetKsenia – Grade: 8 – Eighth Grade – Brooklyn, NY

Those furry paws
And friendly face
Are one in a million
That meow he does
When he wants food
Those eyes he gives
So kind and sweet
When I look at him
My heart beats faster
When he sleeps near me
He warms me up
He greets me from school
He is my cat
And no one can replace that

This poem is just one of the many wonderful poems created by children for the Pets Add Life 5th Annual Children’s Poetry Contest.  The Pets Add Life (PAL) campaign is designed to demonstrate the joys and benefits of pet ownership, thus driving increased adoption of pets and responsible ownership of pets. PAL is produced by the American Pet Products Association (APPA).  The Pets Add Life Children’s Poetry Contest helps to inspire the next generation to express their love and appreciation as pet lovers.
