I recently wrote a blog post for Run Those Dogs about potential holiday hazards for your pets. I know I get so busy trying to get it all done over the holidays that its pretty easy for me to be absent-minded, in a hurry, and occasionally a little careless.
This blog meant more to me than the average because while I was writing about the dangers of candles, I was reminded of a family just a few blocks away who lost their home and their friend two years ago to an unattended candle. The friend had been staying in their spare bedroom and the fire began with a single candle. A young man lost his life, an older teen was severely burned and broke a bone jumping from a second story window, and two other family members were displaced and had to move out of our wonderful neighborhood, switching schools to move to a crowded house with relatives.
Ownership of the house was complicated and so it still sits down the street, boarded up and blackened by the fire, the prayer flags faded white and waving in the wind. It waits, silently, to be torn down when bureaucracy allows. Someday a crisp, new house will fill the void. But their lives will never be the same.
So please, please, keep you and your pets safe this holiday season and all year long.
Jenn Sewell, owner of Run Those Dogs, and her dog, Lilo.
I love being a writer. I get to be creative, express myself, share my voice and thoughts with the world. Yes, it sometimes feels like talking into the void, that I’m just a stream in the Matrix, but it brings me joy. I wish everyone could do what they love. Perhaps there would be a lot less hate, anguish, and anxiety in the world?
I’ve been expanding my business, Wilde World Communications lately, dedicating myself to it full time and loving it. In addition to creating social media content, press releases, and simple web sites, I’m also blogging to help small businesses and organizations be seen, be heard, be discovered and appreciated by new customers. I’m helping them stand out from the other streams in the Matrix.
Snohomish County’s Run Those Dogs is a new client I’m excited to be working with. Owner Jenn Sewell and I will be developing blog content for her site to help her find new customers and connect with colleagues. When she asked me to write about using hemp seed oil in pet care, it didn’t matter to me that I hadn’t used it before. She had used it for her dog Lilo, and I was excited to learn more in order to share her story.
Please head over and read my blog post and be sure to like her page on Facebook and follow her on Twitter and Instagram.
