For Wrigley

About a month ago Chris Thompson, also known as SupDaily on YouTube,  that I watch regularly, lost his dog when she got hit by a car while they were out at a park.  Her name was Wrigley and she was a Chihuahua/Beagle mix, or as Chris likes to call it a Beauhuahua.  She honestly was just the cutest dog I have ever seen!  I never got the opportunity to meet her, but I know if I did I would have fallen madly in love with her!  Hell, I already did just seeing her on Chris’ YouTube, Instagram, and Snapchat!

Wrigley was also known as Chris’ adventure pup, so he decided that he would embark on a three month road trip all over the United States to spread her ashes in places that he was planning on taking her to and other places that he thought she would like.  Along the way he is having meet ups to get donations to take to animal rescues in the cities that he is visiting.  So far it has been a big hit!  He has taken hundreds of pounds of food to the few animal rescues that he has visited.  He’s already visited, San Francisco, Portland, and Seattle.

I wanted to write about this, because this is something that I fully support and want to help out with in any way that I can.  Please watch Chris’ YouTube video about it below:

So I have an idea:  If you feel led to donate anything to any of the rescues please do so! if you don’t live close to any of those areas but still want to help out feel free to email me and I can help you out in the best way I can.  I am going to go to Chris’ meet up in LA in August so if you want to donate something and you don’t mind it waiting until August I can hand deliver it myself while I am at the meetup.  You can also reach out to Chris at ForWrigley@gmail.com as well.  Also, if you could also share this post or just Chris’ video to get the word out, that would be amazing!  Chris is also looking for different dog Instagram’s to connect with as well, so don’t be shy!

Thank you all!

Honey, I’m Home!

It feels so nice to be home for the next 10 days visiting family and friends, but holy shit is it hot!  Just in the two days I have been home it has been almost 100 degrees.  I miss Oregon’s cold winters right about now.  I have found myself to be inside most of the time because it has been way too hot to do anything else.

I was super excited to see my dogs Mollie (a yellow lab) and Chloe (a chiweenie), when I arrived into town yesterday.  Mollie looked confused for a minute when I walked through the door and once she figured out who I was, she started jumping and barking.  Chloe ran laps around the whole house for about five minutes.  Those two are part of my family and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

As much as I love being at home and visiting my family, I will admit that I miss LA and miss going into work everyday.  I am really enjoying it and I am learning a lot everyday.  Plus, I get to be around dogs all day so I’m not complaining.

Still not too sure what I am doing for the 4th yet.  All I know is I want to go watch fireworks somewhere!

I guess I should get off here and actually socialize with my family now.  I hope you all have a fun and safe 4th of July!

I’M ALIVE, I SWEAR!

So, remember me?  I’m BAAAACCCCKKK, or at least for just this second.  I haven’t updated in so long, but my crazy life in Hollywood got in the way.

I have some quick updates:

1.) The other week I had my Movement reunion.  which was the program I was in when I lived in LA for the first time.  It was so great to see everyone after 5 years.  It is crazy to me how much things can change in that amount of time.  I’ll probably write a more in-depth post about that later when I have the time.

2.) I get to see my family next week!  I am going home for the 4th of July and I get to see my family for 10 whole days!  I am so excited!  However, I am hoping and praying that Oregon’s allergy levels for the pollen is down so I am not dying the entire time.

And most importantly:

3.) I GOT A JOB!!!  Well, it’s an internship right now, but it has a very good chance of turning into a job!  What are you doing, you might be asking.  Well, let me tell you.  I work with a startup company called Wag!  and they are a dog walking app/company.  They are basically the Uber for dog walking.  If you have a dog and it needs to be walked, you download the app, schedule or request a walk for right then and there and someone comes and walks your dog.  It is pretty genius if you ask me!  I was going to help with their social media, but they really needed help with finding dog walkers so that’s what I do.  I have always loved dogs and I am so happy that I get to work with dogs on a daily basis.

If I get quiet for a long period of time again, this is why.  I am staring at my computer for almost 7 hours a day and when I come home, I don’t want to look at my computer anymore.  Hell, I am so far behind on blogs it’s not even funny!

Well, duty calls in about an hour, so I should go, but I thought I would give everyone a quick update.  Have a wonderful Monday and rest of the week everyone!
