Do you know Trevor Jensen's amazing story? I was deeply inspired by his journey from near tragedy while dog walking to the creativity-fueled conception and creation of his new product/company Pup Protector! Read HERE about one determined guy's journey back to wellness and his mission to advocate for pet and people safety, or check out this video by his Naraku, "world's smartest dog":
Pretty cool, huh?
In celebration of Trevor's very bright idea and the importance of pet safety awareness, The Daily Corgi is running a Pet Safety Pinterst Contest.
Watch this space for details, coming soon. Your chance to vote is just hours away!

Meet Hamilton. He's nowhere near as serious as he looks!
This dashing fellow answers to Hammy, Ham, Hambone, Ham and Cheese ... it's only Hamilton when he's in trouble.
(And Corgis never get into trouble, now do they?)
Hammy makes the occasional guest appearance on his Mom's blog Elle's New England Kitchen, among the many fabulous recipes and photos of dangerously mouthwatering meals.
"We got Hammy about six years ago when he was four months old" writes Elle. "He’s a huge, snuggly, hairy bozo. With a personality complex."
"You may call me Sir Hamilton.”
“Your Highness Hamilton.”
“Colonel Hamilton" ...
Though I prefer “Admiral Hamilton.”
"We got Phoebe (Pheebs) a few months later. She was just a baby and Hammy was smitten. He did all of his best tricks to show off, but she wasn't impressed."
She was also immediately in charge of him and his life!
"A couple of years later, we let them have puppies. Just the one time, though. Phoebe had six and we kept two girls -- Roxy and Tolee (sounds like Toe-lee)."
"They like to beat the crap out of each other, then take long naps together."
"It's noisy with four Corgis, but I wouldn't have it any other way. They're good, sweet little dogs and they love everyone."
Corgi On kiddos!

A few short weeks ago, Tucker The Corgi Master rallied some good friends to create a fundraiser so that his folks Bert and Vicki could purchase a van for the Veterans Administration to equip with a chairlift, enabling them (and Tucker) to get quickly to safety in the event of approaching tornadoes.
Tucker's Dad is disabled a veteran of Vietnam and a heck of a guy. His Mom is equally terrific. They maintain a page for Tucker on facebook and give of their spirit, humor and talent on a daily basis.
Little wonder that donations have come in steadily for Tucker's van fund. They are now just under $2,000 away from goal. Please have a look at the fundraiser page and share it with your friends and family! With tornado season already so active this year, together we really CAN do something to offer safety and priceless peace of mind to this family -- and Tucker too, so he doesn't get left behind.
