Hello everyone, CEO Olivia here. To wrap up November Epilepsy Awareness Month I want to bark out about our pawsome human caregivers.
It’s not easy caring for an epi warrior. It requires devotion, patience & a huge heart. Strict regimes must be followed for medications. Your life has to be adjusted. You must be prepared for an event at any time, knowing your companion needs you often sacrificing you social, physical & economical comforts. That’s true unconditional love.
I have much love & respect to all those who live with epilepsy. Your devotion & strength is so very much appreciated by us four legged epi warriors. On behalf of all warriors, I bark out a huge, “Thank you” & a ❤ nose nudge ❤.
I also want to bark out a thank you to all the wooftastic vets & neurologists who help us in our fight against the monster.
If you live with epilepsy, you are not alone. There are many support groups that can be found on the vast inter webs. An abundance of information is out there & so many compassionate people that are fighting the same fight to connect with. Reach out. We are stronger when we stand together.

Hello everyone, CEO Olivia here. March 26th is Purple Day, a global movement to raise epilepsy awareness. So for the month of March, Knotty Toys for Good Dogs will be renaming our Wordless Wednesday blog post to Purple Wednesday. Starting next week I’ll be paying to tribute to my fellow Epi-Warriors.

Hello everyone, CEO Olivia here. Being in the public eye, I’m always on my best behavior. But I also have my personal side, which might surprise some of you. I’ll explain.
For starters, I generally don’t get along with other dogs. My huMom believes I was isolated at an early age or was too young when I was taken from my litter. I can’t remember, but it seems I was never taught how to play or how to be social with other dogs.
I do hang out with other dogs, I have my Husky furriends, Kiko & Yoshi, but the initial introductions need to be closely supervised. I’m very reactive & can confuse play with aggression. I was also very close to my late fur bro, Micky Moo & I also had a dog furiend called Zee who I got along with. I seem to like boy dogs more than girl dogs.
My fursister Suzie Q, had a rough time in her life & she too is reactive with strange dogs. We actually didn’t like each other at first. But after being slowly introduced over a month or two we became close furiends. We even share the dog bed now.
I also have a habit of barking at humans. And barking. And barking. My huMom took me to Toronto once, I really wanted to say hello to everyone & tried my very best to accomplish that, but at the same time I was very nervous. So many humans!
My huMom says I’m pretty clever. She also says I have a good sense of humor. I like to think that I’m the “good dog” in Knotty Toys for Good Dogs. I hope that shows online.
What about you, my fellow epi-warriors? What are you like behind the scene?
