Cat Saves Family from Fire

Cat Saves Family from Fire

A cat in Cedar Falls Iowa is being hailed a hero after she alerted her family to an undetected attic fire.

Travis Ryan was at home when his little white cat Emma began acting strangely. Ryan says Emma was running around in circles and meowing, which concerned him.

He thought she was hungry at first so he checked her food bowl, which was full. Then, Ryan followed Emma to the bedroom, where he smelled smoke and heard a crackling sound in the ceiling. He put his hand up to the ceiling and felt heat.

Oz the Terrier Reviews Halo Pets Liv-a-Little Treats

Oz the Terrier Reviews Liv-a-Littles by Halo Pets

Oz is a Cairn Terrier mix who was saved from living life in a puppy mill.  He considers himself very fortunate to now live the good life in sunny South Florida with his Ma and Daddy-dog.

Thanks to, Oz’s ma recently reviewed Halo’s Liv-a-Littles protein treats. She wrote:

“Oz was excited to try the Liv-a-Littles Wild Salmon and I could barely get him to sit still to get some photos.  As I went to get one out for him, I got another surprise…the HALO treats are nicely sized. I sometimes find other freeze-dried treats to be in such small pieces and if your dog is like Oz, they are disappointed when they don’t really get to chew the treat. Not these treats though. They are a perfect bite for Oz.”

We’re Looking for One Lucky Chubby Dog!

fat-dogDr. Donna Spector is my co-host on our radio show THE EXPERT VET and she’s also the veterinary consultant for Halo pet foods, which makes the kibble I feed my own pair of canines. We’re looking for a lucky dog who is getting chubby and his people want to help him get back to his teenage physique!

As part of our show, we’ve been conducting the Halo Healthy Weight Challenge for more than a year now, and we have helped so many devoted dog owners to slim down their chubby pups with the meticulous calorie-counting and weekly support of Dr. Donna (a priceless resource!) plus three months of complimentary Halo dry and canned food for their pooch.

Here’s what you need to be a contestant:

1) A dog you know is overweight (and you also know you’ve been in denial about it but now the “love handles” are beginning to be too prominent to ignore!)

2) You’re willing to take a pair of photos of your dog now and fill in Dr. Donna’s detailed questionnaire about absolutely everything your dog is ingesting in a day so she can calculate how many calories (too many!) are currently going down the hatch.

3) You’ve got the discipline to follow her instructions to the letter once Dr. Donna calculates how much you should be feeding of the Halo kibble and Spots Stew canned food she’ll have delivered to your door.

4) You won’t cheat with treats and will give only the raw veggies and other snacks she recommends.

5) You’re willing to take your dog to the vet every week for the 3 months and report back on his weight to Dr. Donna so she can help adjust the feeding if necessary but also give you lots of support and encouragement.

6) You’ll take 2 “after” pictures to show the power of positive thinking and how your dog has slimmed down with the rare privilege of having Dr. Donna’s guidance and some of the tastiest premium food your dog has ever had.

Dr. Donna and I cannot wait to meet you and rock your dog’s world with super premium food, give you the chance to protect your dog’s health and possibly extend his life (obesity is a leading cause of many canine medical woes) by guiding you through a weight loss regimen that will “put the puppy back in your pup” – because nobody feels their best when they are chubby.

Please write me to and tell us how your pup needs our help!

newtraciepic2Tracie began her fascination with dogs and cats by turning her eye as a former investigative reporter on every aspect of living with them, resulting in her encyclopedic resources THE DOG BIBLE: Everything Your Dog Wants You to Know and then the THE CAT BIBLE: Everything Your Cat Expects You to Know. Before long, Tracie was established as a leading pet wellness advocate as her all-encompassing books covered everything from medical issues to behavior, nutrition and environmental enrichment.
Tracie began her career as a radio personality with a live show – DOG TALK® (and Kitties, Too!) – on the local NPR station in the Hamptons, Peconic Public Broadcasting (WPPB) from Southampton, New York (the show is now also carried on the NPR station Robinhood Radio in Connecticut and the Berkshires). DOG TALK® won a Gracie® Award (the radio equivalent of an Oscar) in 2010 as the “Best entertainment and information program on local public radio” and continues weekly after more than 450 continuous shows and 9 years on the air. Tracie’s live weekly call-in show CAT CHAT® was on SiriusXM satellite radio for seven years until the Martha Stewart channel was canceled in 2013.

Tracie lives in Vermont where the Radio Pet Lady Network studio is based, on 13 acres well-used by her all-girl pack – two lovely, lively Weimaraners, Maisie and Wanda, and a Collie-mix, Jazzy.

Halo And The Olate Dogs Help Berkeley Humane Society And East Bay SPCA

Berkeley Humane Society and the East Bay SPCA in California each received 5,000 bowls of Halo pet food because of the Olate Dogs, in partnership with and That’s 10,000 bowls of Halo to help homeless pets show off their best side when meeting potential adopters.

Halo has partnered with the Olate Dogs to help spread the message that rescue pets are loveable, talented, and extraordinary. The Olate Dogs are the high jumping winners of the 2012 season of America’s Got Talent on NBC. They now tour North America showing off their stunts and captivating audiences in person. In addition to athletic tricks, these dogs can also act! You can see the Olate dogs’ acting chops as the stars of our #RescueFilm series.

Although the Olate Dogs help shelter pets simply by showing what rescue pups can do, they go even further and help pets still in shelters receive the same Halo food that fuels all of their performances. We’re grateful that America’s Got Talent and NBC chose winners who not only entertain, but give back and help others.
