Artist Cathy Hozack

Canine Culture

Welcome to Friday everyone, CEO Olivia here. Today I’m sharing the art work of a fellow epi-warrior. Artist Cathy Hozack, like me, lives with epilepsy. Her paintings have been shown around the world. She feels her epilepsy has effected how she perceives the world as well as how she approaches her art.  I think she does pawsome paintings.

Have a wooftastic weekend. Remember to wear something purple because November is Epilepsy Awareness Month.

November Is Epilepsy Awareness Month

News

Good day everyone, CEO Olivia here. Once again we here at Knotty Toys for Good Dogs will be observing Epilepsy Awareness Month. I’m sure you all know by now that I live with canine idiopathic epilepsy & I like to do my part to offer support & share information with my fellow epi-warriors.

As we’ve done in previous years, for the month of November we will be doubling our donations to the the Wally Foundation. They offer financial assistance to families struggling with the costs of AED’s (anti epileptic drugs). They also redistribute medications, donated by good humans. The Wally Foundation’s founder & Executive Director Rick Selwood believes no one should have to surrender or euthanize a beloved companion because you can’t afford medications.

November 7th will mark the 4th year my huMom has been the Communications Director for The Wally Foundation. Wooftastic!

I’ll be posting regular facts about canine epilepsy on Facebook & on Instagram. Plus don’t forget my eBook series about living with canine epilepsy. My huMom & I wrote them with the hope they will help those who are both new to living with epilepsy & the veterans, like me. We also have an eBook written by epi-warrior Riley’s huMom, Deanne Rodgers Tanksley & there are two more books in the works. They’re free to download here on our blog. Just follow the banner link above.

I’ll also be showing off my furbulous wardrobe of purple outfits. What will you be doing to raise epilepsy awareness this month? I’d love to hear your ideas.
