To Animal Lovers:

I came across this Freekibble site that is petitioning to make April 30th National Adopt a Shelter Pet Day. May not be a huge deal, but you don't have to do much to send the "letter" to President Obama. You just click on the little red box on the bottom right that says "Click Here to Email Our Letter to the President" and then you just type in your name, city and email address and submit! They want to get as many letters in as possible by September 30th.
To my best friend, Natalie: Wipe that disgusted look off your face. Animals are cute!

Great Deal Sites!!

The last couple of months I've been able to purchase things I always wanted but could never afford. Why? Because of these local coupon/discount sites that offer popular products and services at super cheap prices. The trick is, you have to purchase the deal within the time frame they give you. Normally, it will last for about 24 hours. Each of these sites have multiple cities they cater to. Choose the city you want deals in and it will only send you deals relevant to that location. Sign up in any of these sites and receive daily deals in your email. So far, I've bought 3 power plate sessions for $60, an acupuncture session for $30, 5 yoga classes for like $25, mani/pedi at some swanky salon for $19 and other things. I HIGHLY recommend these sites. At least sign up to see what they have to offer you...if you don't want to buy any of the deal (which I really doubt is true), you don't have to.

Do you have any favorites that I didn't mention?

Increase Your Chances of Finding a Lost Pet

I go wacky when I can't find one of my dogs for 1 minute (and he was on my bed, underneath my covers the whole time). I know I would be off the walls if I really, REALLY lost one. Aside from the basics that everyone knows (keep a tag on them, microchip them, check with the animal shelter, post lost dog signs, etc.) there are other things that you can do to increase your chances of finding your furbaby. I always feel so relieved when I hear about one of these stories ending happily, so here is me doing my piece to help make that happen for you.
  • Animal Amber Alert - Using an animal amber alert at sites such as FindToto and Pet Amber Alert will send a personalized notification via telephone to all the homes and businesses in your area. Choose the number of people that you want alerted by choosing one of the plans (starting at $79.95 for 300 neighbors).
  • Post it up on Facebook/Twitter - Make sure to post of picture!
  • Newspaper - Check the Found section of the newspaper.
Did you ever find a lost pet of your own? If so, how did it happen?

Akinator, the Mind Reader

This is a little site that is just for fun. I won't normally talk/write about a site like this but I was kinda fascinated by this one. Its called Web Genius. Basically, think of a character (dead/alive, real/fake, human/animal). With this character in mind, answer some questions. The genie will guess who you're thinking about. If he doesn't guess correctly after 3 tries, you win. But the bastard guessed when I was thinking of Benny "The Jet" Rodriguez from the Sandlot on the first try! Pretty impressive.
