Making a wish

The Inspiration

My fondest memory as a child, was the yearly tradition we had to scour the “Wish Book” looking for a Christmas gift from Granny. She ​gave my brother and I $25 a piece, but she always stipulated that it had to came from the “Wish Book.” We shopped for hours, spending ​that money a thousand times over.


As an adult, especially in today’s world, I value the memory of those days. The time used to discuss this toy or that with Granny. She ​loved hearing my plans more than I ever loved any toy or money.

I attribute my ability to seek out the wonderment and magic in the world to her. She encouraged me to always believe in Santa, until she ​died in spring 2017. Thanks to her, I firmly believe in what others deem impossible.


In honor of her, and of the many animals who have impacted me throughout my life, I have decided to embark on one of the biggest ​dreams I have ever considered.


This dream is to find a way to save dogs from an undeserved death, simply because there is no room. This is commonly performed in ​overcrowded shelters around the nation who are, busting at the seams. Euthanasia is performed to make room for the never-ending, ​nonstop revolving parade of animals who have no where else to go.


One of the most euthanized breeds are Pit Bulls, This is to honor some special Pit Bulls I never met in person, but changed my life in ​countless ways. Piggy, a cancer survivor who passed away in 2022 from Cushing’s disease, I will never forget.

Her dog mom, Annie, brought her to the masses through social media. Sharing her story, her personality, and especially her ​perseverance, drive, and resilience. Anyone with any knowledge of Pit Bulls and Bully breeds know these are common traits, but are ​often overlooked.


Piggy’s story, and the stories of so many others are just a portion of the reasons why I have to fight. Fight to not let another dog die ​senselessly without trying something that is bold, necessary, and outrageously hopeful.


Please consider some Pawsitive wishes that these animals never knew they needed to come true. The Pawsitive Wish Book is an ​optimistic step to give these sweet animals the best chance at finding a happy new beginning! A chance at forever, instead of a tragic, ​preventable ending. It's up to us to fight.

Thank you for visiting! You won’t be sorry you did.
