ORSS 19 – Two Cool New Products From Klymit

Thursday, January 31st, 2019

Over the years, Klymit has really grown as a company and we always enjoy seeing what new products they’re going to introduce. This OR is no exception with the new Moon Dog Bed and Versa Luxe Blanket.

The Moon Dog Bed takes Klymit’s inflatable sleeping pad technology and applies it to man’s best friend. They’ve added a removable fleece top to keep puppy warm and comfy. In fact, throughout the day, many a K9 showgoer took a rest on one of these beds. The Moon Dog Bed is available in two sizes and rolls up for use on the go.

Rover doesn’t have to be the only one in the family wrapped in fleecy comfort. The new Versa Luxe Blanket is a generous 80″ x 58″ and combined a polyester ripstop shell with a fleece liner. In between those two outer layers is Klymaloft insulation, the same material used in their sleeping bags.

The design features a foot box, handwarmer pockets in each corner as well as corner snaps and a cinch cord on one end.

Whiskey 5 – Service Dogs For Those Who Served

Wednesday, December 12th, 2018

WHO:

SERVICE DOGS FOR THOSE WHO SERVED

A 501c3 NONPROFIT

Hero Labradors is a Disabled-Veteran owned 501c3 organization founded by Major Charles (Chuck) W. Ziegenfuss, US Army, retired.

We are producing QUALITY, genetically sound, AKC registered Labradors with AKC Champion bloodlines. We select, raise, and breed our girls (and one boy) to produce very high quality pups. We select service dog training programs worthy of our dogs–and we give these dogs to them, free of charge, with only their guarantee that they train them and donate them to either a disabled veteran, wounded warrior, or first responder (or their family members) who need them. It costs training programs NOTHING to receive one of our pups. Hero Labradors has zero paid employees; we are all volunteers. Hero Labradors provides for the breeding, selection, healthcare, and transportation of these dogs to their training programs, requiring NOTHING from the trainers nor recipients.

Service Dogs for those who’ve served.

WHAT:

Hero Labradors’ mission is to breed and select Labrador Retrievers of the highest quality, possessing the aptitude for service dog training, and to provide these dogs at no cost to service dog training programs. We work with selected programs who, in turn, agree to train and provide these dogs at no cost to disabled American veterans, their families, the Military Community and First Responders.

WHEN:

Hero Labradors was created in December, 2016 after years of Major Ziegenfuss’ experiences with his own service dogs.

WHERE:

Hero labradors is located in Decatur, TX and can be contacted on the following platforms:

WHY:

On June 21st, 2005 Chuck Ziegenfuss was wounded by a roadside bomb while on a foot patrol in Baqubah, Iraq. He lost part of his left hand, full use of both hands, his eardrums, and large patches of skin on his legs and arms. Like many, he spent many months in the hospital trying to get well enough to return to duty, which he eventually did. In 2006 his wife bought him a Labrador, named Major after his recent promotion. Major found his own ways of taking care of Chuck, sensing his needs and became, most accidentally, his first service dog. Ziegenfuss went on to serve an additional 10 years, retiring in January 2015. Major was followed by Halia and eventually the rest of our canine family. This was the genesis for Hero Labradors.
