Spot: The Paws Report, July 26

Spot

Today on The Paws Report at 3:30:

Despite his smiles, this senior Dalmatian has a sad story to tell. You see, for 14 years Spot was a beloved family member. He had an owner who loved him deeply and a grandson to play with. He was a faithful, affectionate dog who never left his owner’s side. He grew old with his owner, and he loved nothing more than to follow her from room to room and to go on walks with her. Tragically, Spot’s world turned upside down in February. His owner lost her battle with cancer, and he was left alone. The person whom he loved more than anything else in the world and with whom he expected to spend his last days was suddenly gone. He went from room to room, looking for her. He didn’t understand where she went. Slowly, he realized that she was not coming back. His owner’s tragic death set in motion a chain of events that led to Spot being abandoned on a family friend’s patio. For months, this faithful friend took care of Spot. But this friend had two energetic dogs of her own, and Spot, being older and wanting just a quiet place to snooze, did not like sharing a home with two playful, younger dogs. So Spot came to the Kentucky Humane Society. This affectionate dog is now looking for a family who will see past his age and accept him for who he is: a faithful, loving dog who still has lots of love and smiles to give. Could you be the person he’s looking for? Spot is neutered, micro-chipped and up-to-date on vaccinations. All he needs is a soft bed, a loving hand, and a place to spend the rest of his days.

Learn more about Spot including where you can meet him by visiting www.kyhumane.org to view all adoptable animals or call 502-366-3355 for more information.

Live Lunch June 24: The Pass

The Pass

Want to know who is coming up in the next few weeks? Did you miss an episode? Have no fear! Take a look at our Live Lunch archives and upcoming schedule.

Lawn Care Cleaner Air
Today’s Live Lunch is sponsored by the Lawn Care For Cleaner Air Program. The Louisville Metro Air Pollution Control District’s Lawn Care for Cleaner Air Program encourages Louisville Metro residents to reduce these harmful lawn-related air emissions by using much cleaner electric and human-powered lawn equipment.

It’s been four years in the works, but Louisville electro-pop band The Pass has released their new album “Canyons” on SonaBlast! Records. The album features a wide variety of influences ranging from 80s pop to uptempo rock.  Utilizing layers and layers of synthesizers against a classic guitar, bass, and drums backing… the band explores the known rock sound set against an electronic landscape where sounds bubble to the surface and excite. We are very pleased to have this amazing band join us this Friday on Live Lunch!
