Help find Gypsy's Babies!

Are you my baby?

The following post is being shared by Adam Goldberg, owner of "A Gold Photo Pet Photography" who has met and worked for my own friends, Bill and Susie, who recently moved to Florida.

Adam is helping Bill and Susie's beloved fur baby, Gypsy reunite with her puppies.

Please feel free to share Adam's article (and take a minute to see his amazing pet photo website!) so that we can reunite and maybe even have a big party.... for Gypsy and her babies!

Thank you! Kim MacCrone

Once there, the couple brought Gypsy to Maricopa Animal Care and Control (MACC) but unfortunately, they told Bill and Susi they could not adopt out a pregnant dog. Fearing this scared girl was going to be put down if they left her at the shelter, Bill and Susi decided they would take her home. A few weeks later Gypsy gave birth to nine puppies. Sadly, only six of them survived. The couple believes the puppies are a Golden Retriever and Dalmatian mix.

Susi and Bill’s Pug, named Seven, helped care for the new puppies. The couple’s four kids wanted to keep all of the puppies, but, of course, that’s a lot of dogs for one family to handle. MACC to took them in and found them their furever homes within a day! Awesome, right!?

Bill and Susi now live in Tampa, Florida where they have met with Adam Goldberg, an avid animal lover and photographer who has had previous success reuniting dogs and their puppies. Everyone’s goal is now to bring Gypsy back together with her pups for a canine family reunion. Adam contacted MACC, but their records don’t date back to 2003 when Gypsy’s puppies were adopted.

So, Adam, Bill, Susie and Gypsy are hoping you can help. If you adopted a puppy from MACC in 2003/2004 and that pupper is now roughly 12-years-old and looks like a Golden Retriever/Dalmatian mix, please contact Adam at so he can try to reunite this furry family again.

National Pet Fire Safety Day- July 15th

 July 15th is National Pet Fire Safety Day

National Pet Fire Safety Day is about making sure your pets don't inadvertently start your home on fire and keeping them safe in case of a fire.

The National Fire Protection Association estimates that nearly 1,000 house fires each year are accidentally started by the homeowners' pets. It's much easier to do than you might realize.

Take a walk through your home and locate all potential fire hazards and then move, fix or store them out of your pet's reach! 
These may include:
  • wires
  • lit candles or other open flame sources
  • plug in pout porrie liquids
  • stovetop burners- especially the flat glass
  • electrical cords of any kind

You may want to:
  • Invest in flameless candles  
  • Keep collars, harnesses, leashes near your front door so that help can quickly secure them when saved.
  • Make sure that everyone in your home knows where the pet carriers are and keep them close to the front or back door. 
  • Make sure that each family member knows your pet fire safety plan. 
Don't leave pets unattended around any open flames. This includes lit candles, fireplaces and bbq's. Cats are able to easily jump onto counters and stove tops. Medium to large dogs often don't realize they're as big as they are and one giant swish of a tail could catch your dog and your home on fire. 

Always make sure before you leave your home that these hazards are distinguished and/or put away safely. 


If you use an Alarm Company make sure your fire detectors are connected to their fire response center. Pet's can't escape if your home is on fire and if you need to rely on a neighbor or a person passing by your home, precious minutes are lost. 
It is a great idea to get your pets trained to run to one room when called. They can easily be trained to do this by using food or treats. If your home catches fire when you are home, you can quickly call them into the room and from there, safely get them out a window or wait for the fire department. We suggest that you keep at least one to two carriers in that room so that you have them available if needed. Of course this will rely on the number of pets you have. 

Have a house safety plan. Of course people need to protect themselves and get out first and foremost, especially with a fast moving fire, but if there is time, make sure to remember each part of your pet safety plan.

Make sure your pets are Microchipped so that if they escape and someone else finds them they will be more likely returned to you. Keep up to date tags with your information on each pet. Without current owner information your pet's microchip won't guarantee them to be reunited with you. The company must have current phone numbers and addresses in order to search for your name.

Know your pet's hiding spots so you can go directly (if safety permits) to them and not have to look all over your house. Keep a keen eye on each pet and watch where they go, learn their hiding habits. 
These preventable measures could mean the difference between life or death of your pets. Please don't delay in updating or creating your pet fire safety plan.
