2009’s “Your Pet’s Photo With Santa” Event, which benefitted S.O.S. (Support Our Shelter), on Nov. 14th, was a big hit. Photograher Judy Valadao filled in at the very last second when the original photographer didn’t make it to the event, and she was exceptional. She dropped everything to come to this event, and she took everything in stride (a large snake, a nervous pot-bellied pig, several rounds of “dogs talking loudly,” all with no coffee, no breakfast, no warning! And the pictures are unbelievably good. Please be sure to click on gallery and take a look. You can access Judy’s website at www.judyvaladao.com

Taz foot in mouth

Meet Taz! (above) This beautiful boy was living at the Mendocino County Animal Care Shelter when Connie and Gale heard that his fate was not so secure. Connie decided to go meet Taz, and then she decided to foster him. She fostered him for about fifteen minutes (or maybe a little longer.) Now Taz lives a happy life where he can run and play and even sit on the couch and watch TV! Just goes to show how life can change. One minute a dog is living an uncertain life in a shelter and the next he owns a feed store!



This handsome dog (above) is Bear, an Australian Shephard. His owner, Leilani, Levy, works at our store and Bear comes to work with her everyday. Recently Leilani decorated 100 “pupcakes” (some of which looked just like Bear!) and sold them at the store. She donated all of the money to S.O.S. (Support Our Shelter.) It took Leilani four nights to complete the job by icing 25 pupcakes after work each day. They were quite a hit and tasted as good as they looked! Not long after, she made her mom two dozen Yorkie pupcakes for her birthday! Jade, the Yorkie, is shown with Bear.

During this year’s Paul Bunyan Days, Rascal, an African Sand Dog owned by actor Dane Andrew of Sunnyvale, once again took top prize as the Ugliest Dog in what is believed to be the country’s oldest Ugly Dog Contest, thus scoring a $100 gift certificate from Fort Bragg Feed and Pet. We hope he won’t spend it on beauty products because we would hate to see him not hit the trifecta by losing next year! Of course, Rascal was sporting his patented Hot Dog Leash, and he proudly led a group later in the City’s parade. You go, Rascal and Dane!

Congratulations to PATTY PRICE who won “seven fish-a-swimming in their own tank” from us during KOZT’s “Twelve Day’s of Christmas” contest. Patty was excited to win this tank for her kids. Merry Christmas to the Price Family.

Welcome to the only feed store in Mendocino County owned by twins. That is only one of the reasons why it’s twice as fun to shop here!

Our friend and employee of 23 years, Melvin Jacobson, passed away on December 29, 2008. Jay Gray sent the following poem in a card, which Cathy read at the graveside service.


A Poem For Melvin by Jay Gray

We lost our friend to God they say, but we know for sure he’s not buckin’ hay

He’ll be back just wait and see, as a dog or a cat or a horse named Flea

He was so special, grumpy or funny, he’d bring me my hay and call me honey.

At the end of the note Jay summed it up best when she said, “I’ll miss that old coot and I know you will, too.”
