Have a Coke...

Have you seen this?
I thought it was a pretty clever marketing idea...

Your name on a bottle or a can and they did have several stops this past summer in many larger cities where you could go and actually get a can made with your name on it but it wasn't in our little city :(


Unfortunately the program ended to put your name on a bottle but they are going to have new and upcoming promotions next summer so check out this link and check back to see if your city will be one of the ones that they feature Share A Coke

Long Hiatus and Mantra for TUESDAY

Well, we here at Jozi and the Pussycats have been on a very long hiatus....things to work out, things to do and a little life to get in order but we are back!

Catching up...hope everyone had a good and Spooky Halloween and a Terrific Thanksgiving!
We have been holding down the fort and making sure that Jozi gets her treats and love (and the pussycats too!)

Here is a Tuesday Mantra for all....(a bit out of the norm but what the heck)


This is kind of what we have been focusing on....the being happy part and not trying to dwell on the negativity.  There is just SO much negativity and un-love happening around us that sometimes it gets hard to focus on the 'right stuff' and you tend to get wrapped up in the negative stuff and keep on blazing along until you hit a brick wall.

I think that with the Molly story (as a true animal lover), I was hit especially hard by the brutality and the cruelty and the misfortune of the family to have to endure such a god awful tragedy that I turned myself off and started looking at all the other negatives in the world....
Have you ever been there?
It's not a pretty place to be, let me tell you.

I have to keep remembering that I cannot understand EVERYTHING and that I can't change everything. I need to live within the boundaries that I see fit and send lots of prayers to those that are suffering and lend a hand when I do have a hand to lend and make sure that I stay positive.

Enough of my jibber jabber....Jozi is staring at me and wondering why I haven't let her say hi....

Monday Mantra .... Love and Heartbreak

Friends,
I am shocked beyond belief and filled with sadness over the loss of a fur baby named Molly. 

Corgi Nation is standing tall and supporting Molly’s voice and her family through this FB page: (Please visit and Like)…

It is beyond comprehension that someone can brandish a weapon and attack an innocent pup in a fit of drunken rage and still be able to live with themselves after the alcohol has worn off and the sun has come up.  This individual is supposedly remorseful but what does that do now?  It does not bring back this sweet fur baby and it does not make the pain any less for the family and the remaining fur baby that is alone and confused.  This needs to set a precedent for people that take it upon themselves to harm innocent animals.

(From the FB page for support of Molly):
Supporters of Molly and the STRONG Corgi Nation have taken to both handwritten letters and email to submit their thoughts, concerns and requests all in the defense of Molly.  If you would like to participate you can send either your handwritten letter or email it to:  

Mr. David McEachran
Whatcom County Prosecuting Attorney's Office
Case #14-1-01044-6 (David William Latham)
311 Grand Ave. #201
Bellingham, WA 98225

Or email to dmceachr@co.whatcom.wa.us (make sure to include the Case #)

According to Molly's supporters on FB they are asking that any correspondence you send please be Accurate, Clean, Polite, Brief and Focused please. 

You can also make a difference and sign THIS PETITION for Molly....

Not only was Molly a corgi (which we have an interest in because Jozi is a corgi), BUT Molly was a fellow fur kid that deserved so much more than to die in the arms of her family.  She deserved to grow far past her 13 months of life… to frap, to develop that ‘corgi smile’, to run and frolic, to swoon over amazing belly rubs  and to enjoy an over abundance of  love and treats and happiness.  Our fur kids are just that….our kids!  They depend on us but they also provide us with the love that only a fur kid can give and that is one important and special kind of love!


Here is my letter that I wrote and sent:

Dear Mr. David McEachran:
As a Corgi owner, a dog-mom and a citizen of my community that obeys laws, lives in a family neighborhood and is an advocate for animals I am utterly still in shock that an individual who could very well live next door to me in my community caused such horror and loss all in just seconds. I ask that you provide the appropriate punishment for Mr. Latham to the highest extent of the law and he should never be allowed to have any pets again.  
There should be no reason why a Facebook page entitled Justice For Molly The Corgi” should exist and it is only because of a deplorable action by David Latham that cost the life of a loving and faithful Corgi name Molly.  Mr. Latham no matter the remorse that he now “feels” performed a despicable act in a split second that will forever change the course of a family and should forever change the course of his life.   Mr Latham cannot be allowed to function above the law and not face any consequences.  Please do not let Molly’s death be in vain.  
RCW 16.52.205 is regarding animal cruelty in the first degree, a person is guilty of animal cruelty if he or she intentionally inflicts substantial pain on, causes physical injury to, or kills an animal by a means causing undue suffering, or forces a minor to inflict unnecessary pain, injury, or death on an animal.
People must live peaceably and live with kindness.  Evil has no place in our society and it is up to the law to punish the offenders.  This man did not exhibit rational behavior and is a threat to society and to this community.
A Corgi MOM and one of the many voices for Molly speaking up and asking for justice, please.

That is all we have for today....incredibly TOO much for a Monday, I am sure but this family is hurting and our voice is important. I will be keeping a static of "Remembering Molly" on Jozi's blog that points to the FB page and we will be following the court case keeping all paws crossed that justice is served.  

Will you help and be a voice for Molly too?  

With MUCH Peace, Love, Barks and Treats,Sending our love to Molly’s mom and dad and corgi sibling Kirby….CK and Jozi ♥

Taking It Easy....

Well, lately we have been taking things a bit easier....after a scare of Jozi not being able to walk, we had to make an emergency vet visit, x-rays and yucky meds.

I guess I would have understood that she hurt herself IF she would have been running around zooming but she wasn't.  She was relaxed on the floor sleeping and I woke her to take her outside and that was all she wrote....she got up slow and then did not want to put any weight whatsoever on her back left leg.  Do you know how much it hurts to see your baby, a corgi with such a long body hopping on just three legs with pain in her gaze?  It's awful, completely awful, just horribly awful when there is nothing that you can do about it.

So, rest and relaxation and sedating drugs are on the menu for at least a week to see if there is any improvement.  Nothing broken thank goodness.....

She does not seem to be favoring the leg much today so that is good....


Don't let anyone tell you that you've never seen a C-O-R-G-I  X-Ray, because now you have!  
(of course we need to provide the necessary privacy for a girl!)

Happy Labor Day!

What would an end of summer holiday be without dogs and water and happiness?
Pretty boring we'd say here at Jozi's place!

Here's a GREAT DOG + Water = HAPPINESS Video for you to enjoy! 

(I just love the pup that is outside the fence and is running around to get into the area...he's on a mission!)

Little Late In Posting.....Dog Park Event

Dog Park Antics...

A couple of months ago we went to our local dog park to lend support for their cause and had lots of fun and took lots of photos!  We saw a few corgis that we just HAD to take photos of and a friend even went to the event and we met up with her and her new fur baby! They even had a treat eating contest (for doggies) where the dog-hooman had to feed their fur baby the dog treat!
Jozi got to have some off-leash time in the fenced area and she seemed to really like it after she realized that mom and dad were still around

Enjoy the photos and have a happy happy Wednesday during the dog-days of summer!!

Jozi wore her Doggles in style....then she wore them on her head!

A pair of Corgis! They were so friendly!
They posed for a pic and Jozi just hung her tongue out!
Beautiful BOY!  Love the coloring!

They had DOG BEER!

Another Corgi with a TAIL!

We met up with a friend and her fur baby Do'g (pronounced Dough-gee)



Not sure about this spoon-thing!

Ohhh Ummm...this is my taste buds unsure of this stuff!

So sweet.....

PHOTO BOMB'ing Do'g!

I'm not having ANY of that treat or any contest....I just wanna watch!
Look MOM no leash here!
Look MOM!  No leash here EITHER...

Walking our way out....daddy has the camera and he always manages to get the behind shots....Check out those pants on that CORGI! 

Have a great Wednesday and SUPPORT you local dog parks!

Helping To Find LOST and FOUND Pets


We found this great FREE service online today that helps owners to find lost pets through a national registry and some freebies such as being able to create a free pdf lost poster in different formats to print to try to find your lost pets.  This company, Helping Lost Pets is FREE to use and you can list a pet as Lost or FOUND and once you do, there are other members in your area that are alerted as to the status of a lost or found pet. By utilizing volunteer groups and other social media outlets there is a better chance of getting the lost or found pet networked and back to the safety of their home and humans.

Did you know that July 5th is one of the busiest days for shelters in our country?

Check out Helping Lost Pets and show them some love for the great work that do in helping pets!


Peace, Love, Barks and Treats Forever,
Cat and Jozi
