Olivia’s Silent Auction for The Wally Foundation

News, News Flash

Hello everyone, CEO Olivia here. Today I’m tail waggingly excited to announce my Silent Auction. I have sniffed out some wooftastic prizes to bid on, donated by pawsome people, as well as our own Knotty Toys for Good Dogs & Cool Cats. I hope you’ll all pawticipate because the money I raise goes to a good cause, my charity of choice, The Wally Foundation – Canine Epilepsy.

The Wally Foundation is a non profit that helps those who struggle with the costs of epilepsy medications. Founder Rick Selwood believes no one should have to surrender a beloved companion animal because you can’t afford their medication.

Here’s how to take part in my auction. Starting today, November 18th, you can go on my Facebook page, Oh, the Life of Olivia, there you’ll see the post for the auction pinned to the top of the page. You will be able to see pictures of each prize being auctioned with it’s minimum bid. Click on the picture of the prize you wish to bid on & like a silent auction, you can post your bid in the comments. If someone outbids you, just post again with a higher bid. We will cut off bidding at Midnight, November 30th & will announce the winners on Monday, December 2nd. Payment can be done through PayPal or eTransfer.

Best of luck & a huge thank you to our bidders.

Important Information About Canine Medications

News, News Flash

Hi everyone, CEO Olivia here. Usually on Fridays I bark out artwork but today I have something urgent I need to share with you. My huMom sits as the Communications Director of the Wally Foundation ~ Canine Epilepsy. She was contacted through the Foundation by a woman who lost her canine Epi Warrior because her medication contained xylitol. Ingesting even a small amount of xylitol can be fatal to a dog.

How did this happen? The Pharmacy dispensed medication for a human unaware that the medication was actually for a canine.  The medication was sweetened with xylitol.  By the time this was sorted out, it was too late.

It is very important when filling a prescription that the Pharmacy is aware the medication is for an animal not a human. Otherwise a tragedy like this might happen again. Never hesitate to talk to your pharmacist & ask questions. They are there to help.

Reminder – November is Epilepsy Awareness Month. This year I’m asking all my fellow Epilepsy Warriors & wagnificent supporters to help me raise Canine Epilepsy awareness globally. Here’s what I want you to do. Get your human to take your picture with a sign showing your “Bark Out” or motto against this horrible disease. Then send it to me by messaging my Facebook page, “Oh, the Life of Olivia“.

Once November arrives I will begin posting the pictures I’ve received. Let’s show the world how strong the Canine Epilepsy Community is.
