Vote for Oz #WelcomeHome

"There's always GRRRREAT STUFF happening at Habitat for Humanity!"

That, my friends, is my opening line in an essay and photo contest that I am participating in on Facebook. The contest is hosted by Dow Chemicals and was open for entries last week for every Habitat for Humanity affiliate in the U.S. My affiliate, Habitat for Humanity of Broward, entered my photo into the contest hoping my cuteness would help them win!

Dow Chemical is a big sponsor of Habitat for Humanity throughout the United States. They donate several of their products, like GREAT STUFF™ Window & Door and GREAT STUFF™ Gaps & Cracks, to every affiliate in the country. Ma and Daddy-dog use it, along with all the other Habitat Broward volunteers, to keep the homes they build airtight so the Florida heat and humidity can’t get in and wreak havoc on the house.

Oz's Summer Car Safety Tips for Dog Owners #BeSleepypodSafe

It amazes us that the message “No Dogs in Hot Cars” still needs repeating but it obviously does as evidenced by these current events: Dog left in hot car rescued at county jailChicago Tribune and 14 dogs die in Roseland when truck’s air conditioning fails from the South Bend Tribune. We wish we could say that here in Florida we know better because we deal with heat all the time but that is not the case. Earlier this month we had a K-9 officer die after being left in a hot patrol car.

Oz's favorite summer car safety tips for dog owners

So with all that, I am going to share two of my favorite Summer Car Safety Tips for Dog Owners with the hope no dog gets injured in a hot car.

Living Large in Mazda CX-5 #DriveMazda #DrivingMatters

On our recent adventure around greater Fort Lauderdale, when we visited Lola's Market, we were test-driving the 2016 Mazda CX-5 crossover SUV.  The CX-5 is the midsize vehicle in Mazda's crossover SUV line which also includes vehicles we previously reviewed like the Mazda CX-3 and Mazda CX-9.

The Mazda CX-5 is known as the "overachiever in its class". It has been ranked a 2016 IIHS Top Safety Pick when it is equipped with Mazda's Smart City Brake Support and has been ranked number one in Compact Crossovers and SUVs by Car & Driver. We found the CX-5 a joy to drive and our tall passengers found it to be comfortable and roomy for its size.

Yesterday we were invited to attend Beneful’s Dream Dog Park Project in Miami.
