Sunny Sight Seeing in St. Augustine, FL

A few days ago, the Doggies were spotted out-and-about, checking out the sights of St. Augustine, FL… just a couple in love, enjoying their beach town vacation…

Soaking Up The Sun on Miami Beach, FL

After their long day of “hard work” at the Golf Tournament last week, the Doggies needed a break. A couple days ago, they decided to spend the day at Miami Beach.

Sgt Marcus Hayward Golf Tournament in Naples, Florida

This past Thursday, the Doggies attended the Sgt Marcus Hayward Charity Golf Tournament in Naples, Florida, benefitting one of America’s sons together with Active Heroes. Over $90,000 was raised!

Fundraising Ideas for Snick & Emmie’s Journey

Help raise money for the Active Heroes Retreat. Try one of these fundraising ideas, or something similar, in conjunction with a visit from the Snick & Emmie stuffed Shiba stand-ins!

It’s Not About Politics, It’s About Helping People

Encouraging the efforts of organizations that help military families and veterans is not synonymous with supporting the politics of war. For me, it’s simply helping fellow human beings who were willing, if necessary, to sacrifice to protect the rest of us.

Funds Needed to Start the Journey

The planning for the journey has begun and people are volunteering all over the country to host Snick & Emmie’s stuffed Shiba stand-ins and take their photos in interesting and fun places. Before the journey can actually start though, about $645.00* needs to be raised for supplies.
