Our 5 Favorite Moments of 2019

February 05, 2020

Here we are in 2020, but we haven't yet taken a moment to stop and think about what brought us the most joy in 2019. While there were countless great moments, we have narrowed it down to a few events that made our tails wag a little faster. 

1). Fitz Finds a Forever Home
While our hosts Christine and pup, Fitz were showing us around Old Town, Chicago for one of our Bark Like A Local episodes, we had a chance encounter with a lovely woman who simply fell in love with him. One thing lead to another, and Fitz was adopted into his forever home shortly after. We love you, Fitz!

2). New Tricks
In 2019, we discovered the amazing screen presence our pups Molly and Pirate were capable of. What started as a goofy video about taking your dog to work soon became a plethora of videos that had us all rolling.

3). The Impact
With our Rescue Roast Program in full swing, we teamed up with our pals at PAART. With the profits of six weeks worth of Rescue Roast you purchased, we were able to fund a rescue flight that saved 26 pups in ONE day, and ultimately bring them one step closer to their forever homes.

4). Finding New Ways To Help
At Grounds & Hounds, we are always searching for ways to help. As many know, there are a lot of sterotypes and legislation around pittie breeds that rescrict them from becoming household pups. In October of 2019, we launched our 'Must Love Pibbles' Collection in an effort to fight these unfair laws and we couldn't have been happier with your response to the cause!

5). Counting the Spots
We love to do giveaways, but this one was the winner in 2019. We had you all guess the number of spots on our spokes-dog, Molly. (For the record, Molly has 519 spots). 

There you have it - our favorite moments from 2019! We hope that you'll join the Grounds & Hounds team in 2020, and continue to spread the word of animal rescue all while enjoying a cup of coffee with your best friend.
