Hero Dog Awards 2014

October 31, 2014

KISS MY MUTT® was at the Hero Dog Awards featured on the Hallmark Channel thanks to Modern Dog Magazine! Their amazing team provided us with tickets to the show, and it was an honor to attend the event at The Beverly Hilton Hotel. We laughed, we cried, and learned so much about service dogs and the bond and love they provide to their human counterparts.

The American Humane Association Hero Dog Awards™ is an annual national competition to search for and recognize America’s outstanding Hero Dogs. What does it mean to be a Hero Dog? A Hero Dog will unconditionally avail him or herself to us in so many important ways, whether it’s saving lives on the battlefield, lending sight or hearing to a human companion, providing therapeutic support to children suffering from cancer, or just greeting us with a wagging tail at the end of a hard day.

The dogs honored included Search and Rescue Dog, Bretagne, Military Dog, Chaney, Service Dog, JJ, Law Enforecement Dog, Kota, Arson Dog, Kai, Therapy Dog, Susie, Emerging Hero Dog, Xena, and Guide Dog, Xxon. The dogs are all heroes with unique stories to be told. You can learn about their stories here!

Not only did we learn the stories of some amazing Hero Dogs, we also learned about the great work The American Humane Association is providing to military dogs and their handlers. To ensure that all our heroes come home from serving our country overseas, American Humane Association is working to bring back retired military dogs and reunite them with their former handlers. They help raise funds to pay for these heroes’ transport home, where the once-inseparable pair can be reunited and enjoy the peace and freedom they earned while away in places like Iraq and Afghanistan. The benefits to both soldier and dog are immeasurable and they want to make sure the four-footed veterans who served our country receive the hero’s welcome, dignified retirement, and loving, forever home they deserve. After learning that many military dogs are not brought back to the states after serving overseas, we were truly shocked to say the least. We believe more should be done to bring military dogs home and hope to share more information soon.

The value service and hero dogs bring to humans everyday is absolutely amazing. The connection and hope they bring to our lives is immeasurable. We all know dogs are amazing, and the Hero Dog Awards really proves how much we rely on our pups as they do us. The connection we have with our dogs is something we’re so thankful for everyday and we thank the Hero Dog Awards for reminding us how awesome dogs are!

Kiss My Mutt + Celebrity Pups

August 10, 2011

Last week, we were pleased to announce Kiss My Mutt™ products were delivered to some of Hollywood’s most famous pups in a gift bag catered specifically to celebrities’ dogs and cats. The bag is so cleverly called the ‘HollyWOOF’ gift bag, and was delivered to celeb pups, like Blake Lively’s maltipoo named Penny, Drew Barrymore’s rescued mutt named Douglas Fairbanks Barrymore, Justin Timberlake’s two boxers named Brennane and Buckley, Denise Richard’s clan of pups, Betty White’s golden retriever named Pontiac, Oprah’s five precious pups, Sunny, Luke, Layla, Lauren, and Sadie, and many more!

All the celeb pups received a 2011 Limited Edition Kiss My Mutt™ Tote Box that included swag like Kiss My Mutt™ braided collars and leashes, our adorable little tees and our reversible bandanas. We were so pleased to be included in this swag bag because the style, durability, and quality of our products is being noticed and appreciated by people who have “seen it all,” but also because a lot of the celebrities included in this list are those that are very much involved in philanthropic work across the world for both animals and people…and we can say we appreciate that a lot!
