I just found out about a dog food that is super-duper for dogs and puppies. It is called Bully Max. Look up their website and see the many varieties of dog food they have available. You can also have it delivered to your home.

Taken from their website:

THE CHOICE OF PROFESSIONALS: Trusted by UKC, AKC, and ABKC champion breeders (Such as the Incredibullz, Dela Cruz Kennels, & Carolina Bully farms). Bully Max is also used by search and rescue units, veterinarians, top law enforcement agencies, and the US navy seals.

So look, it may interest you. Just type www.shop.bullymax.com.


On my website Have A Heart for Companion Animals, Inc. www.haveheartusa.org under Links you will find Can We Help You Keep Your Pet … click there and you will find information on how to add another pet to your home “Dog Behavior Getting Along With Other Animals”.


I would also like to encourage you to look over some of my past newsletters. They contain a lot of information and also highlight the things we have accomplished in the past.

December 2023 Blog

This month, I’d like to discuss my book, “My Collies & Me”. I thought that it would be a perfect Christmas gift to all of your friends and neighbors that have or love dogs.

First off, I want to make it very affordable so you can buy several. The book sells for $14.95, however, for my friends, I am offering the book at $7.95 plus 2.50 s/h. That would be a net of $10 per book. This offer is only good through the holidays. 1/10/24 is the cut-off date…and you will need to buy it directly from me, not Amazon or other on-line booksellers. Just drop a check in the mail, made out to Marilyn Marinelli for $10 to PO Box 831413 Ocala, FL. 34483. Be sure to include your name, shipping address and email so I can acknowledge your order.

Here’s a synopsis of the book and a little about me, the author.

“My Collie Girls & Me” is an ongoing saga that reflects the faith and love of the author for the collie fur babies entrusted to her by God. It is also the story of how God can and does bless his children through the precious hearts of companion animals.

“My Collie Girls & Me” is a true love story filled with both sadness and great joy. It exposes human weaknesses, great faith and dedication. It is an easy read with over 30 photos. This wonderful story of God’s love spans more than 20-years and flows through four collie girls, two collie males, three beautiful cats and one loving husband.

The author shares blessing after blessing sent from heaven to her through her collie girls. She will also talk about the two male collies and her three cats, revealing how God used them over the years to teach her Biblical truth.

Hidden within the pages of the collie love story are selected original poems by the author. They are presented as a support for various events and/or feelings.
