Spottyed Snuggles #140 Rescue Dogs the Movie

Woofs and Tail Wags!  We’re posting this in support of the Rescue Dogs the Movie’s mission.

Disclaimer: I am not monetarily compensated for sharing their information.

Many readers and subscribers may remember that the original intention  of this blog was to celebrate the spottyed snugglers in my life. They all came to me under different circumstances: Miss Cookies arrived here as my 1996 Valentine’s Day present as a 12 week old puppy, The Bandit was my first and only ‘foster fail’ in 2000 and La Petite Grande Dame Cherie came here 2008 to fill the empty void after Cookies and Bandit went OTRB.  I have learned so many different things from each and every one of them. I am forever grateful that they were part of my life.

This month is earmarked as Adopt A Shelter Pet so I hope that this post will inspire people to consider adopting their new furry family member!

 

Below is further information about Rescue Dogs the Movie: (Can’t wait for the premiere! I request that you save me a seat and maybe a box of tissues.)

 

Do you and your dog want to be in a movie?

RESCUE DOGS the movie will bound into theaters in Spring 2016, and your pup could be on the big screen!

RESCUE DOGS is a first-of-its-kind family feature film that actually stars real rescue dogs (and rescue cat and rescue hamster) as the lead animal characters! Not only will the movie be in theaters entertaining kids and parents alike, but RESCUE DOGS is also looking to benefit animal rescues across the nation by partnering with them around the opening weekend of the film! Animal rescues that partner with the film will be holding live adoption events at theaters during the opening weekend, looking to raise money, awareness, and actually adopt out a large number of rescue dogs!

The production company behind the picture is Busted Buggy Entertainment. As part of their outreach to raise awareness on the film and for their charity partners, the producers are running a campaign that allows you to submit a picture of you and your rescue animal for a chance to appear in the end credits of the film! The #MyRescueDogStory campaign is happening now, and is a fun opportunity to see you and your pet on the big screen, and to be a part of a meaningful film that will make a difference.

Here is how you can participate:

It’s really easy to enter. First, go to www.RescueDogsMovie.com and submit your picture along with a short story about how you rescued your animal or they rescued you!

Then, you can share your picture, story, and the #MyRescueDogStory campaign on your Facebook, Twitter or other social media sites!

RESCUE DOGS is the story of Tracy and his rescue dog Charger who have to foil the plans of an Evil Businessman who wants to knock over their beach restaurant in order to build his golf course. With help from his brother, Tracy tries to meet the bills, manage the kitchen (where Charger helps cook!) and still find time to fall in love with the beautiful dancer, Bridget. Through a comedy of errors and mishaps, the humans find they themselves can be rescued by their very own rescue animals.

Spottyed Snuggles #103 Masters

“Dogs are masters of creating emotionally safe space just by being themselves. … it is as if something deep within our souls resonates with their energy, their unwavering unconditional love and unbridled joy to be in our presence, their undivided loyalty, and complete trust in us. Dogs make us feel special, and teach us by example to relish simple pleasures and live totally in the moment. They teach us there is only now and only who you are, who you are with, and what you are doing right then–and
what could be better than to sniff the wind and be in the company of those you love?”
― Val SilverRescue Me: Tales of Rescuing the Dogs Who Became Our Teachers, Healers, and Always Faithful Friends

The Bandit and Miss CookiesNCream, 2003

They certainly created that emotionally safe space for me after the passing of my husband.
