We’re Having A Purple Day Auction

News

Hello everyone, CEO Olivia here. As you must know by now, March 26th is International Purple Day. It’s a day for raising epilepsy awareness globally.

This year we’re trying something different to celebrate. We are going to auction off some Knotty Toys & the money raised will go to the Wally Foundation – Canine Epilepsy.

Here’s how you can participate. Starting tomorrow (Tuesday March 19), on my Facebook page, Oh, the Life of Olivia, you’ll see the post for the auction pinned to the top of the page. We will have pictures of each toy being auctioned with a minimum bid. Click on the picture of the toy 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, March 25th & then will announce the winner on Purple Day. Payment can be done through PayPal or eTransfer.

You’ll be helping a good cause. The Wally foundation helps qualifying families, shelters & rescues by helping to cover the costs of AED’s (Anti epilepsy drugs). They also redistribute unused medications that have been donated.

Best of luck to all who enter.

Silly Dog Sundays ~ March 17th Edition

Silly Dog Sundays

Top of the morning to you. HuMom told me to say that because it’s Saint Patrick’s Day. But it’s also Silly Dog Sunday here at Knotty Toys for Good Dogs. Bark out to Peace & Paws Rescue for today’s silliness.

Enjoy the day, I hear there will be parades.

Artist John Bramblitt

Canine Culture

Welcome to Friday, CEO Olivia here. Today I’ve sniffed out a truly inspiring artist. John Bramblitt has won numerous awards for his paintings. Like me, he is an epi-warrior but what’s really incredible is that he is blind.

He learned to distinguish between different colored paints by feeling their textures with his fingers. He taught himself how to paint using raised lines to help him find his way around the canvas, & through something called haptic visualization, he is able to “see” his subjects through touch. He  paints amazingly lifelike portraits of people & animals he’s never seen.

Are these paintings not incredible?

All of us here at Knotty Toys for Good Dogs wish you a pawsome weekend.

CEO Olivia ❤
