Disabled War Veteran Repays Service Dog
Organization, by Inventing New Chew-Toy andDonating All ProfitsBig Dog’s Powerful Bite Helps Re-Invent the Rubber Ball
Two remarkable stories of determination and persistence come from the
household of disabled war veteran James Hayes, who has a service dog, an
85 LB German-Shepherd named Barrett.
Barrett was given to James by Dogs4Warriors, an organization that helps
veterans cope with Traumatic Brain Injury and Post Traumatic Stress
Disorder, both of which James suffers from, after 3 combat tours in Iraq
and Afghanistan.
James and Barrett quickly developed a close bond, but there was a
potentially dangerous problem – Barrett routinely tore apart the toughest
of chew toys, including those dubbed “indestructible”. So James set his
sights on finding a stronger, safer product for his new best friend.“Veterans Twice as Likely to Start Their Own Company”
James refused to give up in his quest for a toy that even a determined dog
like Barrett could enjoy, but not destroy.
Unable to find any suitable product, James proved U.S. Sen. Tammy
Duckworth D-Ill. correct, when she explained why veterans are twice as
likely to start or lead their own companies as civilians:
“Those who’ve worn the uniform have a kind of courage instilled in them”
said the senator, herself a retired U.S. Army lieutenant colonel. “The
type of resilience and determination that can turn a long-shot idea into a
profit-making business.”James had never heard of Sen. Duckworth, but proving her right, he had
already contacted a variety of manufacturers. James now has a patent
pending on the unique manufacturing process he developed to produce a
completely solid indestructible rubber ball
His quest ended when he found Ethical Products in Bloomfield, NJ. They
were the first company willing and able to help produce James’s re-
designed ball, and to also do something quite profound with their profits…
Ethical Products Inc Donating All Profits to Dogs4Warriors
Deeply impressed by the service, sacrifice and determination of both James
and Barrett, the company made a remarkable move of their own, offering to
donate not just a percentage, but all their profits on the sale of The
Barrett Ball to the Dogs4Warriors organization that matched James with his
beloved dog, Barrett.
To Learn More or Purchase a Barrett Ball
Named after James’s beloved dog, the Barrett Ball will be available in
small, medium and large sizes, priced from $6.99 to $29.99 and comes with
a 100% lifetime guarantee.
For more information download our Press Kit. Pre-order will be available
on www.thebarrettball.com, though the new Barrett Ball will be officially
launched at the Global Pet Expo on March 20-22 in Orlando. The Barrett
Ball will be shipping to stores and websites in late April.ABOUT:

THE SECRET LIFE OF PETS 2 – In Theaters June 7

Official Website | Facebook | Twitter | Instagram | YouTube | #TheSecretLifeofPets2

 

Genre: Comedy

Cast: Kevin Hart, Tiffany Haddish, Harrison Ford, Patton Oswalt, Eric Stonestreet, Jenny Slate, Lake Bell, Hannibal Buress, Nick Kroll, Dana Carvey, Ellie Kemper, Pete Holmes, Garth Jennings, Bobby Moynihan

Director: Chris Renaud

Co-Director: Jonathan Del Val

Writer: Brian Lynch

Producers: Chris Meledandri, Janet Healy

 

Illumination’s tenth feature, The Secret Life of Pets 2, is the highly anticipated sequel to the 2016 comedic blockbuster that had the biggest opening weekend ever for an original film, animated or otherwise.

 

Packed with Illumination’s signature irreverence and subversive humor, this new chapter explores the emotional lives of our pets, the deep bond between them and the families that love them, and answers the question that has long intrigued every pet owner: What are your pets really doing when you’re not at home?

 

Terrier Max (Patton Oswalt) is coping with some major life changes. His owner (Ellie Kemper) is now married and has a toddler, Liam. Max is so worried about protecting the boy that he develops a nervous tic. On a family trip to a farm, Max and mutt Duke (Eric Stonestreet) encounter canine-intolerant cows, hostile foxes and a terrifying turkey, all of which only elevates Max’s anxiety. Luckily, Max gets some guidance from veteran farm dog Rooster (Harrison Ford, making his animated-film debut), who pushes Max to ditch his neuroses, find his inner alpha, and give Liam a little more freedom.

 

Meanwhile, while her owner is away, plucky Pomeranian Gidget (Jenny Slate) tries to rescue Max’s favorite toy from a cat-packed apartment with a little help from her feline friend, Chloe (Lake Bell), who has discovered the joys of catnip.

 

And crazy-but-cute bunny Snowball (Kevin Hart) gets delusions of grandeur that he’s an actual superhero after his owner Molly starts dressing him in superhero pajamas. But when Daisy (Tiffany Haddish), a fearless Shih Tzu, shows up to ask for Snowball’s help on a dangerous mission, he’ll have to summon the courage to become the hero he’s only been pretending to be.

 

Can Max, Snowball, Gidget and the rest of the gang find the inner courage to face their biggest fears?

 

The Secret Life of Pets 2 is produced by Illumination founder and CEO Chris Meledandri and his longtime collaborator Janet Healy, the visionary team behind Dr. Seuss’ The Grinch and the Despicable Me and Minions franchise, and is written by returning Pets screenwriter Brian Lynch. The film is directed by returning filmmaker Chris Renaud, who also directed Illumination’s Despicable Me series and Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax. www.thesecretlifeofpets.com

Dear Jon,

With heavy hearts, we share the news that Doris Day passed away peacefully this morning at her home in Carmel, Calif. She had just  celebrated her 97th birthday on April 3, and many of you attended birthday events and sent your best wishes from around the globe. She delighted in hearing from you! She was in good physical health to the end, and we are so grateful she was surrounded by friends as she passed.

The world has lost a light today. Doris was not just a darling of song and screen, but a close friend, an inspiration when the world seemed bleak, and a dear, compassionate advocate for her favorite beings on Earth: the 4-leggers.

Her life's work -- her music, her films, and her animal advocacy -- comprise an enduring legacy. Fans will continue to laugh at her romantic comedies, admire her dramatic grit, marvel at her pitch and interpretation of so many great, songs. She redefined what it meant to be a girl singer with a Big Band, and she broke the mold for Hollywood starlets. And for so many fans, young and old, the name Doris Day will always make us smile.

Doris' passionate work on behalf of dogs, cats, horses, sea lions, raptors and other animals in need of rescue, veterinary care and adoption will not end. The Doris Day Animal Foundation is committed to continuing its work as a grant-giving organization, funding smaller animal welfare non-profits across the country.

As you remember Doris today, give a thought to the animals she cared for so deeply. Memorial contributions in Doris' honor can be made by clicking this link.

While we grieve Doris' loss, we at DDAF also honor her leadership of more than 40 years. She was truly a voice for the voiceless among us, a bright and beautiful champion for the cause of animal welfare, and a dear, dear friend to us all.

In deepest sympathy,

T. Robert Bashara
CFO
The Doris Day ANimal Foundation

About Paul Bogart
Though his songs are fresh and he himself is young, Paul Bogart is an old soul with a knack for capturing time-honored traditions and summing up classic sentiments in catchy, three-minute songs. Exuding sincerity and a rare, down-to-earth charm, he is, simply put, the epitome of traditional country music. After nearly a decade of writing, playing and touring, Bogart has begun pulling in big numbers in every arena, literally. Whether it’s the main stage at the AQHA World Championships with thousands in attendance or the social media scene with over 3.5 million fans reached through all social video platforms, lead by “The Cowboy Way” and “Cowboy Ride” with over 2.6 million views, Bogart’s songs have connected with America’s Heartland in a real, tangible way that modern country has perhaps missed. He released Leather in 2017 which garnered critical praise for “grounding itself in the foundations of country music fandom's tenets of faith and family.” (CriticalBlast.com)
