Canine Cuisine Book
Piney Mountain Foster Care’s facility manager: Doug, and our veterinarian: Dr. Sandra Manes, have been working on a book about canine nutrition and feeding for a couple of years. It’s finally been published and is available to the public.
We now have a few copies available for local purchase.
We are working out a deal with Our Place Bookstore and coffee shop in Cosby to be our local distributor.
This book covers all aspects of canine nutrition and discusses everything from choosing a good commercial kibble to cooking your own dog food (including recipes). We also cover raw diet, grain free, all-meat, boutique meals, and have a hard look at proper nutrition for dogs dealing with diabetes, heart disease, kidney disease, and cancer. Tons of useful information presented for the average person in Doug’s lighthearted writing style.
Kuranda Dog Beds
Elevated, Orthopedic Comfort
Kuranda’s elevated dog beds are a great relief for dogs’ joints. The cot-style design evenly distributes their weight so that there are no pressure points like they would have on a hard surface. No more sore hips, elbows or shoulders.
Engineered Chew Proof
Kuranda’s patented design secures the fabric inside a special channel in the frame making it totally inaccessible to dogs that chew. Pair with a scratch-resistant fabric and you have a chew proof bed. Guaranteed for 1 full year.
Piney Mountain Foster Care has an affiliate account with Kuranda beds, so if you click the image here and order your bed, Kuranda will share part of their profit with us. Or if you wish to donate a bed to us, you can do that here too and Kuranda will ship the bed directly to us.

Portraits by Donna
Dog lover, rescuer, and artist Donna Gregg has offered to support Piney Mountain Foster Care through her artworks. When I got one of Donna’s works of art in the mail as an early Christmas present, I was astounded by her likeness of our American Bulldog mix: Cochise. It is so life-like and detailed (center below).
Below are just a few of the dog portraits she has done:
Donna can produce a portrait of your dog (or that of a friend) as well. She’ll need a clear photograph of your dog’s face to work from and can combine multiple dogs into a group portrait. Donna’s fees are reasonable and if you give her the secret phrase, “Cochise sent me”, she will donate half of her fee to Piney Mountain Foster Care. These portraits can be done in a variety of sizes and come matted and ready to frame.
About Donna Gregg and her Dog Portraits
How do I love dogs? Let me count the ways. When I was a wee tot, my drawings of dogs didn’t look like other kid’s pictures. Theirs had stick feet and round bodies, and mine actually had paws with the correct number of toes. Then I graduated to cartoons of dogs. I thought to myself, I’m on to something!
Then life happened and I became an IT geek and didn’t draw for decades. I then morphed my love of dogs with my crochet hobby, and began making caricatures of friends’ pets with yarn. The bigger the feet, the bigger the nose, the better.
Then the little light under my bushel basket said “Hey, remember me: Pencil and paper?”, and my first dog portrait happened. And then another, and then another. I love bringing pets to life on paper; a number of my pieces are memorials for pets who have passed away.
The bottom line: I love using my talents to make people happy. I hope I can bring some joy to whomever reads this.
