Happy Birthday Precious!

It's hard to believe that Precious is 9 years old today!  

It seems like only yesterday we were celebrating our little Christmas gift.
And since Precious somehow knows it's her birthday, she's giving me the Let's GO!  look.

She always has an adventure on her birthday, so we're off to explore.

Look for a few tweets @Imajackrussell today for a chance to win one of Precious' books.

In the mean time, here's just a bit of the Precious story!

September is National Guide Dog Month

Not only is September Precious' birthday month, (22) It's also National Guide Dog Month.  

Our friends at Dick Van Patten’s Natural Balance have teamed up with Eva La Rue and Omar Miller, stars of TV’s CSI: Miami, along with Petco and Independent Retailers nationwide in support of National Guide Dog Month. This September, Natural Balance will participate in a month-long effort to celebrate National Guide Dog Month by raising $1,000,000 and awareness for Guide Dog Schools across the country. Help us to change a life: Guide dogs provide the visually impaired with safe mobility, loving companionship and the independence to explore new places.

Every seven minutes someone in America becomes blind or visually impaired. Natural Balance Pet Foods is committed to the cause of Guide Dog Programs that empower the visually impaired with the life-changing gift of a guide dog. We are dedicated at both the national and local levels to raise money and awareness in support of the transformational power of guide dogs.

Precious will be tweeting all month using the #NationalGuideDogMonth hashtag, and we'll be taking a few trips to Petco to purchase some of the goodies.

Visit The Natural Balance website to learn how you can help. 

Can you tell that Precious is a fan of Natural Balance treats?
