Dear Jon,

We here at LBWF would like to wish you and your family a very Happy and Peaceful Thanksgiving. The last few years have provided many challenges. and we are incredibly thankful for the support our friends and loved ones have shown us throughout it all. We could not have made it this far without your help and guidance. So, we here at LBWF, are VERY THANKFUL FOR YOU!Our focus continues to be bringing awareness to the many dog related issues plaguing our great nation. We hope to bring to light the troubles with breed ban legislation, puppy mills, reducing euthanasia in our city shelters by providing support to our communities (launching spay/neuter programs, affordable veterinary care, training, etc), and much much more. With your continued support, we can make a difference in our communities and across the nation.In the spirit of the holiday season, we encourage you to reach out to your fellow neighbors in need. Now, more than ever, they need your empathy and compassion. A peaceful Thanksgiving to you all.... Sincerely,
Linda and your LBWF Team

Holiday Pet Safety Tips
With the holiday seasons upon us it's important to keep your four legged loved ones safe! Here are a few tips to keep you and yours happy and safe this holiday season!
  1. Be mindful of cold weather products such as de-icing products, salt, and anti-freeze! When walking your pet outside during the snow and ice be sure to wipe their paws and undersides thoroughly when returning inside. This will ensure your pet is safe from any skin irritations or more serious conditions. 
  2. Keep all holiday decorations out of reach such as tinsel and ribbon. Ingestion of these materials could cause serious health complications for your pet.
  3. There are lots of beautiful holiday plants out there but many of them are dangerous to your pets if ingested. Keep lilies, mistletoe, ivy, holly, and poinsettias out of reach!  
  4. We all love our fur friends very much and want them to enjoy some of the same yummy treats we do but keep in mind that turkey bones can be very dangerous to our pets and could cause obstructions. Holiday sweets such as chocolate are dangerous too! Keep the yummies out of reach of your furry friends.  
  5. With the holidays come lots of visitors and/or out of town trips. It's important to ensure your pet is properly tagged and micro-chipped in the event they become spooked during this holiday season.

Linda's Tofurkey and Gravy

First available in 1995, the Tofurkey roast is a remarkably tasty and nutritious turkey alternative for those who choose a vegetarian or vegan lifestyle.  Tofurkey is renowned for its ease of preparation and turkey-like texture and flavor.  One bite and you'll understand why Tofurkey is the number one choice of vegetarians during the holidays and year-round!

Ingredient List:
  • 1 Tofurkey roast (in the grocer's vegetarian frozen section)
  • 2 large carrots, peeled and quartered
  • 1 onion, peeled and quartered
  • 1 Tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground sage
Preheat oven to 350 F Make the baste:
  • Whisk together soy sauce and sage, then set aside
Prepare the roast:
  • Remove roast from packaging & set gravy aside to thaw
  • Place the roast in a casserole dish (dish must have a tight fitting cover)
  • Place carrots and onions around the roast (celery may also be used, if you wish)
  • Whisk baste again and them pour half over the roast
  • Cover tightly to keep steam in
Cooking Instructions:
  • Cook at 350 F for 1 hour and 15 minutes
  • Remove from the oven, uncover the casserole and baste with remaining half of baste mixture
  • Return to the oven and cook for an additional 10-12 minutes
Gravy preparation:
  • Pour thawed gravy into a small saucepan
