MORE INFO ON THE TIDEWATER DOCK DOGS SHELTER PROGRAM


The Shelter dog program is the first of it's kind in the DockDog community. In 2012 the Tidewater DockDogs Board of Directors wanted to make an impact in the community with their compassion and love of shelter dogs and their ability to become just as talented at DockDogs as any other dog.

Sponsoring this program is a joint effort from Shipps Corner Pet Spa, from donating the dock time to orientate the dogs to the dock, Tidewater DockDogs members for volunteering their time training, taking pictures for cards to hang on the kennels stating "I'm training to become a DockDog, come see me at Bay Days" and finally and the most important piece, a volunteer from the shelter to commit to being the handler for both the orientation day and competition day.

Tidewater DockDogs pays for all the wave fee's and because this is a club event we are able to set special time in a wave (also known as a heat) for these shelter dogs.

Three weeks before our event we invite the dogs out to the dock for practice and orientation, which is actually August 24, 2014 . These chosen dogs, have already displayed a "toy drive" and some sort love for water. In our first year we had 10 dogs at orientation day, 6 jumped and showed confidence to be on the dock in front of a large crowd and where chosen to be sponsored.

Last year, 19 dogs showed up and we had to narrow our choices to 10 dogs to be sponsored. The most amazing thing happened; all of these dogs were adopted within 30 days of competing and many within the day of the event. These are dogs that have spent often months or even years in the shelter, but giving them a job and something they feel excited about puts them in a whole different light that people see.

At the end of the event, it doesn't matter, what dog jumped the farthest, or the highest, or even swam the fastest. It's about getting them out of the shelters and into their forever families.

Tuesday September 2

A massive amount of celebrity nudes hit the web over the weekend including Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton, Selena Gomez, Bar Refaeli, Olivia Munn, and Lea Michele. Apparently someone hacked into the Apple iCloud, and stole photos people had taken on their phones and backed up online. And there's word that there could be more. A ton of other celebrities had their private photos hacked and posted, including Kim Kardashian, Rihanna, Kaley Cuoco and Hilary Duff. The FBI released a statement yesterday saying, "We are aware of the unlawful release of material involving high profile individuals, and are addressing the matter." And, no, I did not post any of the leaked photos because I do not wish to be on the wrong end of a lawsuit. You can find them if you look hard enough, just BE CAREFUL!!!

Kid Cudi suddenly fainted while signing an autograph for a fan at a show in Chicago over the weekend, and there's a video of him collapsing. Security quickly carried him away so the paramedics could have a look at him. He later Tweeted, "I'm OK. I'll do a better job and make sure to eat properly on show days :) Scouts honor! If I scared anyone tonight I am so, so sorry from the bottom of my heart."



Gabrielle Union married Miami Heat star Dwayne Wade in Miami on Saturday. He's 32, she's 41. There's no word on celebrity guests other than John Legend, who reportedly performed during the ceremony. This is Gabrielle's second marriage. She was with former NFL running back Chris Howard from 2001 to 2006. Wade was married to his high school girlfriend from 2002 to 2010. They have two kids, and Wade also raises his sister's 12-year-old son.

Jenny McCarthy and Donnie Wahlberg got married Saturday near Chicago. Guests included fellow New Kids on the Block Joey McIntyre, Danny Wood and Jordan and Jonathan Knight plus Sherri Shepherd, who was let go from "The View" along with Jenny. Donnie's brother Mark Wahlberg wasn't there, but he sent a congratulatory video via Instagram. You can see it HERE! TMZ wants you to believe he didn't go because he doesn't like Jenny. I'm not buying that one!

Ashlee Simpson married Diana Ross's son Evan Sunday at her home in Greenwich, Connecticut. Diana even officiated the ceremony. Ashlee is 29, Evan is 26. Jessica Simpson was the matron of honor.

Carrie Underwood and her husband, hockey stud Mike Fisher, are expecting their first child. She posted an Instagram yesterday (SEE IT HERE!) of her two dogs wearing shirts: One read, "I'm going to be a big brother" and the other said, "I'm going to be a big sister." She captioned it: "In honor of 'Labor' Day, Ace and Penny would like to make an announcement. Their parents couldn't be happier." Carrie's people also confirmed the pregnancy, and that she's due in the spring. Mike got into the act by joking about it with a post on Twitter. That one read, "We haven't picked names yet but it's looking like Fly is going to fly." He hashtagged it "FlyFisher."

There's a coffee shop in Everett, Washington called Java Juggs, and it was basically like the Hooters of coffee shops. The baristas were all sexy, young women who wore very little clothing while they served $6 cups of coffee.. check out the pics HERE


It's clear that no matter how many stories we hear about the dangers of texting and driving, we're not going to stop. But if ANY story was going to change your behavior, it might be this one. More details HERE


The very first Denny's in Manhattan opened over the weekend. And how did they celebrate finally cracking the New York City market? By selling a breakfast approximately 6,000% more expensive than their average breakfast. More details HERE

Brangelina's Wedding Album - People Magazine Has It

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie said they wouldn’t get married until everyone could get married. But it looks like they relaxed that standard a little bit.

It’s old news now that they got married secretly in France a week or so ago. Now the news is that many of their wedding pictures can be seen in the latest edition of People Magazine.

All of their kids participated in the wedding, according to reports. Their two oldest sons walked mom down the aisle. Two of the girls tossed flower petals. And the other two children were ring bearers. Plus, Angelina had her dress designer sew artwork by the kids into her wedding veil.

Brad, who wore a suit out of his closet – why spring for a tuxedo, right? – but ended up having to borrow a tie from his son.

The magazine hits the newsstands tomorrow. So plan to spend a little extra time in the checkout line at the market, checking out the photos.

Meanwhile, you can check out this selection from Instagram, posted the day of the wedding.

Carrie Underwood Goes to the Dogs

When some people let the world know they’re with child, they do it simply. A phone call to their parents, perhaps an announcement card in the mail, maybe even a simple email or Facebook message.

If you’re Carrie Underwood, that’s far too mundane.

The Queen of Country took to Twitter yesterday to announce that she and hubby Mike Fisher are expecting their first child in the spring of 2015.

And how did she do it?

By dressing up her two dogs in T-shirts that announced they were going to be a big brother and a big sister and posing with them. And they made the announcement in honor of “Labor” Day.

Get it? Because labor is the way pregnancy usually ends, while pushing the new child – in this case, sibling to a couple of canines – out into the world.

Just Call Me Kendall

Kendall Jenner is no longer using her surname. She’s going simply by Kendall.

This isn’t anything new, she says. It’s just that the media picked up on it recently, that’s all.

She’s been simply Kendall for about a year now, to make things easier for her as she embarks on a modeling and acting career.

When she was burdened by the surname, it came with the Jenner-Kardashian baggage. “People didn’t want to take a chance on me,” she told Teen Vogue, “I think because I was sort of known.”

Not so much that she was known – just that she was known to be part of the Kardashian Klan.

Of course, she’s still Instagramming like a Kardashian…

A Kim Trim

Kim Kardashian trimmed about three inches of her hair over the weekend.

Her fans are probably camped out near her mansion, hoping that the Santa Ana winds will blow a lock or two their way.

A treasured keepsake, for sure.

Someone’s going to have to explain to me why a Kardashian haircut qualifies as news.

Right after you explain to me why I’m writing this…

NudeStock? NuderGate? What Do We Call This?

The internet was buzzing all weekend with the news that nude photos of some top-shelf lady celebs existed and had been posted on-line.

Actress Jennifer Lawrence and model Kate Upton were two of the victims. According to all reports, their cell phones were hacked and the nude photos lifted from them.

Jennifer’s lawyers call it a “flagrant violation of privacy.” Kate’s lawyers concur, calling it an “outrageous violation of privacy.”

Singer Ariana Grande categorically denied that alleged nude pictures of her were authentic. Actress Victoria Justice says the same thing.

Actress Mary E. Winstead took to Twitter to respond to people who were actually looking at the pictures.
  Let’s put it this way – whoever this hacker is, he or she has made an awful lot of enemies.

Usher's Official Butt Check

Okay, we can admit it. Kim Kardashian’s rear bumper is probably her best asset.

It’s certainly helped her get where she is today – rich and famous for virtually no reason whatsoever.

Many people suggest that Kim’s had work done on her derriere – implants, perhaps.

Check out this funny and dizzying butt-checking moment that US Weekly on-line captured at last week's VMAs

Singer Usher definitely looks like he’s checking for unnatural resources.

Gas Prices Keep Going Down!

The gasoline market doesn’t seem to be reacting to tensions in the Middle East and the Ukraine.

Instead, they’re dropping consistently – and according to GasBuddy, they’re at their lowest national average since 2010, just $3.45 a gallon for regular.

Your results may vary, of course, but generally, that part of the economy is in good shape.

Which means you won’t have to spend as much in gas to go pick up the every-more-expensive bread and milk this week.

Hey, it’s the little things…

Of course, the folks at Funny or Die have a slightly different take on the situation. Check out this KFOD exclusive report…
