Messy cleanups are gross!

We feel bad and I know our humans get grossed out.

Mom's friend has the solution!

PAWS Across Canada Comes to Lloydminster Oct 20

A dog with a blog....

That's me!

I luv shopping for PAWducts that we luv!

This was me during our first leg of PAWs Across Canada...building a kinder Canada one paw one person at a time.   I was trying to do the shopping cart dance at Petland, they were one of our amazing partners on the tour!

On Oct 20 we leave for the 2nd leg of the tour... to Saskatchewan and Manitoba!
I'll be filling up my Outward Hound back pack with toys and other stuff we need for the tour.  I luv to have a job!

Our partners, The Original Poop Bags, our number two sponsor (LOL.... get it?  Number 2!!) will be traveling with us everywhere!

  Mom will be making sure she packs to of my fave toys... the Kong

Last time dad threw one and it got stuck in a tree, and mom has a girly throw and we often lose them.   So we'll bring some extra.

I'll be filming the whole tour with my very own Go Pro Video Camera.

You know...

Life through Toby's eyes.

Our first stop will be Lloydminster.  We'll be staying at Microtel Inn & Suites.

They are pet friendly!

There are several businesses so far that are supporting our Twoonie for Team Toby Fundraiser:  They'll be selling cut out pawprints for $2 which raises funds for Coca's Promise (a rescue in Lloydminster), and, Team Toby classroom programs, and a presentation from me.  We luv partnering with businesses to promote kindness, acceptance and respect.

Thank you to:

Puppy Luv Doggy Day Spa, Pet Planet, and, the Lloydminster Animal Hospital for jumping on board to help!  We'd love to have other businesses supporting the cause (and you don't have to be a pet business).

Mom's got the Doggie Doo All ready to go as well.  We luv this product.  No more messy cleanups!

We are looking forward to our school presentations while in Lloydminster and doing some fun pet friendly adventures.

See you October 20 in Lloydminster.

Remember to follow us on social media to get our live as it happens, blogs, photos, videos and radio shows.

Thank you to all our sponsors and partners!  We appreciate you.

You got it.

A dog with a blog!

What a great thing Joshua Garay is doing.

He's helping pet families find homes that are pet friendly!

Did ya ever wonder how to EASILY find a house or rental property that has everything you need for your pet (fenced yard, close to dog park, nearby to vets, etc)? Interested in the real estate market trends? 

I like homes on water, near water or close to dog beaches... I'm a water dog!  Photo Credit Team Toby

Joshua S. Garay is the founder of GoodLife Listings,a Real Estate posting service that features six targeted specialty brands all designed to meet the long term, short term and nightly housing needs of the marketplace. 

Mom interviewed him on her radio show.  You can listen to it here:

Mom found out that after working as a property manager, Real Estate Broker and investor, Josh discovered the necessity of building a listing service focused on the lifestyles and needs of the buyer or renter rather than focusing on a generic utility as is commonplace in the market.

 Check out what he has to say here... this information will help you before you put your pawprints on the dotted lines.

One Dog's Mission to Spread Kindness

It's Me!

Toby the dog.

A dog with a blog on a mission to make the world a kinder place.

In May and June we did PAWS Across Canada Tour, leg #1.... Alberta and BC, Canada.  Here were a few of the many pawsome successes.

We visited schools and workplaces sharing the message of kindness, acceptance and respect, and, responsible loving pet care.  We did way cool pet friendly adventures, and, had amazing partners on the tour.

It's Bully Prevention Month and we head out on PAWS Across Canada Tour #2.... Saskatchewan and Manitoba Canada.

Please help us visit more schools with our BARK (TM) Program.

For less than a cup of coffee... for only $2 you can help us share our message in schools.  It's our Twoonie for Team Toby campaign.  

Buy a $2 Pawprint and support our efforts to reduce bullying through teaching kindness, acceptance and respect.  

Purchase your pawprint here to support kindness to people, pets and the planet!

Thank you for your support in building a kinder world... one paw... one person at a time!
