Happy New Year! May 2015 be full of love, health and happiness.

New Year’s Eve 2014 Round Up

2014 was a busy and eventful year, both personally and at Talent Hounds.

At Talent Hounds, we decided to focus on our blogging and get more involved in social media and we are loving it (Thanks for all the help from this group on Wordless Wednesday and Blog Paws!).

We filmed and launched several more TV episodes, shared some very inspiring stories, organized a big live show at the All About Pets Show, attended some cool events, supported various rescue organizations and pet related causes and met lots more great friends (both 2 and 4 legged). We have also launched some fun new products like the personalized t-shirts and the Spaw Dry line, developed a kids iBook series “Paco the Pug” which we will be launching in 2015 to help early readers (inspired by reading with therapy dogs) and developed a script for a romantic comedy “Pippy Love” with a rescue puppy star which we hope to produce in 2015.

Personally I fostered Kilo and “failed”. My family have finally agreed that I can adopt him in January, if the rescue also agrees. He has his challenges, but what an adorable little cutie.

My husband and I also sold our house and bought a slightly smaller one nearby which was stressful but has all ended well (we moved last week).

I am currently on vacation in Mexico, celebrating the end of 2014 and toasting a fantastic 2015 with family and close friends. How will you be celebrating?

I wish everyone a very Happy New Year!

  • I’ve always loved the stories of foster “failures.” Kilo is awesome; and I’m sure he’s so glad to be considered a ‘failure’ in that one special way 🙂 Have a great vacation and I’m looking forward to reading/seeing more of your posts and accomplishments in 2015!

  • You’ve had a busy year. I’ve enjoyed following your stories every Wednesday. Congratulations on your failed foster Kilo. I’m sure he’ll be very happy you chose him. Have a great vacation. Happy New Year.

  • Happy New Year!
    Our new kitty was a foster fail this year, too! =^..^=

  • What an awesome year you’ve had! Congratulations on planning to adopt Kilo!! He is such a cutie and it sounds like he’s come a long way with you. Moving is always stressful but it’s so nice when you get settled into a new place. It sounds like you’re getting some relaxation now….enjoy!!

  • Sounds like a wonderful New Year ahead!!

  • Congrats on becoming a foster failure- THE BEST!

  • Smaller dog, smaller house…should work out well! We will never foster because Mom would fail every time and then you would read about that crazy dog lady in the news! Have a fabulous vacation and a wonderful 2015!

  • Happy New Year!! <3

  • I am celebrating taking care of my Mama who’s not feeling well… at least she is staying home with me tonight! Kilo is lucky to be adopted now! Thanks for your support in 2014, and have a great 2015! *wags* – Gilligan from WagsAhoy.com
