Spike Says: Check Out Barkhunt

17 02 2009

This Thursday at 9 PM, I will be participating in Twitter’s first scavenger hunt.  The coolest part about it is that I will be giving away three items as one of the sponsors:

Paw Luxury, Best Bully Sticks, and Four Legged Media will be joining me as sponsors of the premiere of this one-of-a-kind event.  Check out the rules for hunters here, and take a look at all of the prizes being given away.

To keep up with the events of Barkhunt, keep an eye out for the #barkhunt hashtag on Twitter.

Spike’s Shelter Dogs – Adopt Your Next Dog Here

15 02 2009

spikes-shelter-dogs-sidebarIf you have not figured it out already, there is a special place in my heart for rescue dogs.  Whether they are adopted from shelters, rescues, or fosters, they are all special friends to me.  For that reason, I decided to use my celebrity to draw attention to the deserving dogs available for adoption.  Initially, we are focusing on shelter dogs local to me in the Atlanta metro area, as well as the state of Georgia, but we plan to expand our reach to a national level.

With interesting and entirely coincidental timing, Mom recently added two puppies to our home temporarily after hearing their story.  We think they are Newfoundland/Lab mixes, and they are very cute, fluffy balls of fur.  They are quite active, playful, and energetic.  Yesterday, I posted a video and some pictures of them, as well as their back story as the first dogs posted on Spike’s Shelter Dogs.

If you are interested in adopting either of these puppies, or any of the dogs listed on Spike’s Shelter Dogs, check out the contact info for each of them.  Also, if you are a shelter, rescue, or foster interested in having an adoptable dog listed on the site, check out the Ask Spike Online Contact Us page.  Something that we are doing differently to help gain attention for these dogs, we are utilizing the social media power of Twitter and Flickr to raise awareness.  To be the first to know about additions to Spike’s Shelter Dogs, follow @shelterdogs on Twitter or become a contact on Flickr.

Feel free to spread the word about my newest project to all you know, especially those who are looking to provide a forever home for a four-legged friend.

26 01 2009

spikes-lost-and-found-logoWe are very proud to announce something we have been working on for the last few weeks in addition to our normal duties, providing our readers with entertaining (I hope) information on canine behavior.

Today, January 26th, we have launched a new site, Spike’s Lost and Found, in an effort to assist lost dogs reunite with their families.  The beauty of this project is that the site can be updated with an e-mail.  Once I have approved the post, the site will be updated with the information contained in the e-mail.  The post will then have a notification sent out on Twitter to all of the followers of @spikeslostfound alerting them to a new posting on the site.

Families who have lost their dog, as well as people who have found a dog, can use this site to find each other.  If you find yourself in need of such a service, you need only e-mail us at lostandfound[at]askspikeonline[dot]com.
