The Dogist

Is your dog longing to be on The Dogist? This holiday season we’re doing a sweepstakes where The Dogist will personally fly/drive/dogsled to your home anywhere in the continental US to photograph your dog (and give it cookies). Every item you purchase from The Dogist Shop counts as an automatic entry (ex. 5 shirts = 5 entries), and yes, all previous purchases count. You can also enter by signing up on our giveaway page (no purchase required). A NYC winner and a national winner will be chosen on Christmas Eve by Waffle (@wafflenugget) and Finn (@KeepingFinn), respectively. Don’t miss this chance to give your dog its 15-minutes in The Dogist spotlight! (Link to shop in bio)

Blue, Bear, & Penny, Pit Bull, Pomeranian, & Dachshund (5 m/o, 10 & 2 y/o), Willows, CA • “We’ve been here for two weeks – this hotel is full of people from Paradise. We’re going to see it (our house) tomorrow and are not taking the kids. We’ve seen drone footage and it’s gone. The insurance company went insolvent, but we’re going to get a trailer by winter break. I’m sick of shuffling around; it’s hard to find a rental with the dogs, especially a Pit Bull. Penny has taken it the worst. She wants to go home.” This series is thanks to #workingwithlincoln

CA228a, Labrador Retriever (senior), Del Oro Shelter, Oroville, CA • This senior dog is still unclaimed. If you recognize this dog, please contact NVADG hotline at 530-895-0000 • “For the people of Paradise, it was a nightmare and now it’s just a bad dream. It’s over but they still feel the effects. At first it was chaos and panic, then it was happy that they survived. We’re hoping that people can be aware eight weeks from now that the people of Paradise will still have very little.” This series is thanks to #workingwithLincoln

E299a, Boxer mix, Del Oro Shelter, Oroville, CA • This dog is still unclaimed. If you recognize this dog, please contact NVADG hotline at 530-895-0000. • “The Camp Fire burned fast and hot. It was very dry, with humidity in the single digits and heavy fuels – pine trees. Once it started it drove incredibly fast. People were in the hospital and were coming off of anaesthesia to get out. An ambulance caught fire. We saw a chocolate Lab – his pads were burned off. His eyes looked right through us. He was in shock, paralyzed mentally. We could feel the PTSD everywhere. We sheltered 2000 animals at the peak and are down to 1350 – horses, chickens, goats, sheep, reptiles. We pulled 62 Koi from a pond – no fish left behind. We rescued a hermit crab from a girl’s room. If we can’t capture a dog or cat, we’ll feed and water an animal in place – ‘shelter in place’. We send 20 people a day to feed and water the animals.” This series is thanks to #workingwithlincoln

Giovanni, Chihuahua (1 y/o), Butte Humane Society - Pet food pantry, Chico, CA • “We were in the fire storm in Paradise together. I got her and my snake, but I forgot my turtle in the backyard. The house behind us was already on fire. It was time to go. There was no time to think. I would’ve been freaking out a lot more if I didn’t have my pets with me. I had to be calm for them. We were evacuating in the traffic and there was a dog going from car to car looking for help. Giovanni is afraid of dogs but I said if it’s a nice dog I would let it in. It was a German Shepherd, so it was a risk, but I let her in and she started licking Giovanni. She had wounds on her face from the fire. They were both on my lap panting as we evacuated. I delivered her to a shelter and checked in on her every day until they found her home. Her name was Lola.” – This series is thanks to #workingwithlincoln

S3a, German Shepherd (Unclaimed female), Oroville Animal Shelter, Oroville, CA • This German Shepherd was displaced from her family during the Camp Fire in Paradise, CA. If you recognize this dog, please reach out to the NVADG hotline 530-895-0000. To support NVADG, please visit the GoFundMe link in bio. This series is thanks to #workingwithlincoln • “One of the best reunions we’ve seen at the Chico Airport was with a huge Mastiff and his owner, locked in embrace. The owner was fleeing the fire and the dog suddenly stopped and wouldn’t budge. It turned out there were downed power lines where they were going to walk. The dog saved his life. Samson. You can see it in the owner’s face, melting in each others’ arms. It was pure. Beautiful. When you find out the story you understand.”

Kelsey, Australian Shepherd, Oroville Animal Shelter - Oroville, CA • “Kelsey was rescued from the Camp Fire and identified through her microchip. We contacted her family and they have claimed her. She will be cared for by the North Valley Animal Disaster Group (NVADG) until her family is able to care for her again. These are Camp Fire animals – they will be treated specially because they’ve been through a lot.” Kelsey is lucky to have been claimed, but there are still many unclaimed dogs waiting to be reunited. The Dogist has set up a GoFundMe to help NVADG with their mission (link in bio). This series is thanks to #workingwithlincoln
