I am a husband, and father of 3 beautiful kids. For the past month I have been flooded with love from family, friends, and people who I have never met. At first this seemed like something that would be scary and tough however, the overwhelming LOVE that I have seen is giving me such strength and is fueling me. I am on my second round of chemo and feeling as strong as I have felt mentally and physically and this is mostly due to all of you amazing people.

As Anthony Weiner navigates the fallout (his wife, Huma Abedin,announced plans to separate from him on Monday morning) of yet another alleged sexting scandal — his second since landing in hot water after tweeting explicit photos of himself to a woman via Twitter in 2011 — buzz surrounding the recently-released documentary about his life, aptly titled Weiner, has reached an all-time high.  The social and political aftermath of #Weinergate 2011 is intensely chronicled in Josh Kriegman and Elyse Steinberg’s sometimes endearing, often uncomfortably funny, endlessly fascinating portrait of the former New York congressman. Showtime will premiere the documentary on television for the first time, with an airing planned for Oct. 22 at 9 p.m. ET on the network. Weiner is currently available to watch On Demand and to rent on iTunes, VuduYouTube, Amazon, and Google Play. See the film’s full trailer here.

On the show 9/13/16 we talked to the talented actor @KurtYaeger who is starring in the new Cinemax show QUARRY – click on the link for more info. Here’s a little bit: When Marine Mac “Quarry” Conway returns home to Memphis in 1972 after fighting in Vietnam, he finds that he has been shunned by his loved ones and demonized by the public. Upon his return stateside, Quarry struggles to cope with what he experienced and witnessed while at war and readapt to civilian life. As he struggles to make ends meet financially, Quarry gets drawn into a network of killing and corruption that extends throughout the length of the Mississippi River, and The Broker — the cunning, secretive crime boss who runs the operation – takes a special interest in him. Watch trailer!

ANIMALS…………

Tips From Celebrity Dog Trainer, Tamar Geller
-When giving dogs ginger pills (or any pills they require) put them in a pill pocket
-Rescue Remedy for dogs is good for anxiety
-Make sure you find a groomer that hand dries your dog (never in a cage or kennel)
-If your dog is getting older, or if you just want to prevent hip/back problem, add little doggie stairs by your couch or bed and train them to walk up them, rather than jump

If you have been feeding your companion animals commercial pet foods, you may be jeopardizing their health. Supermarket pet foods are often composed of ground-up parts of animals deemed by U.S. Department of Agriculture inspectors unfit for human consumption. Many of these animals eating this have died of infections and other diseases. In all but a few states, it is legal to remove unusable parts from chickens and sell them to pet food manufacturers. Most pet foods contain the same hormones, pesticides, and antibiotics that are found in commercial meat products for humans. If you are concerned about your companion animals’ health and about the cruelty of the meat industry, now is the time to stop buying meat-based commercial pet food. Learn more about healthy vegetarian dog and cat food options.

Every Monday I work with Wags & Walks to post a dog that currently needs a home. Owner of Wags & Walks Lesley Brog witnessed people dropping their dogs at shelters for a variety of reasons, but rarely was it through any fault of the dogs, and yet shelter dogs endure the unfair and unshakeable stigma that they are damaged goods. In 2009, Lesley mustered up the courage to leave her comfortable pharmaceutical sales job and vowed to make as big of a dent as she could in this misconception and resulting shelter overcrowding crisis. Armed with dog-loving, intelligent, loyal volunteers who share Lesley’s can-do attitude, Wags & Walks has saved and successfully placed hundreds of family friendly, healthy dogs.

Gentle Giants Rescue and Adoptions was established in 1994 by Burt and Tracy Ward to create a loving and stable environment for giant breed dogs while finding them safe and loving homes. Gentle Giants now rescues 45 different breeds of dogs ranging from 2 pounds to 300 pounds and during the last 18 years has rescued and saved more than 14,000 dogs.

For a dog food, what could contain more protein than whole meat? Well, surprisingly, a quality grade meat meal can actually be a more abundant source of protein than the whole meat from which it was made. Here’s why. Meat meal is a dried end-product of the cooking process known as rendering. Rendering is a lot like making stew — except that this stew is intentionally over-cooked. With rendering, you start with a meat stew, cook away the water and bake the residue.  And you end up with a highly concentrated protein powder — or meat meal. For more facts click here.

The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust is today the most successful orphan-elephant rescue and rehabilitation program in the world and one of the pioneering conservation organisations for wildlife and habitat protection in East Africa.

The VanderPump Dogs Foundation runs on the idea that it is vital to build strong relationships between dog-loving communities in the United States and animal advocates around the world, including mainland China. By starting with Yulin and the Guangdong Province, the two most notorious in China, we can start a domino effect across the world. Our ultimate goal is to create an environment where all dogs are treated with the compassion and respect that they rightfully deserve. We’ve recognized that the most efficient way to get something changed is to make sure people know about it.
