Update on Tessa the Blue Pit Bull

Yesterday, I wrote my very first check as a business owner.

It was for $25, and the money went directly toward helping this pretty lady:

I felt so proud and grateful at the same time!

The only thing that would have made the experience better is if Tessa and I had run into her future family while we were out walking.

The money, of course, was proceeds from Beer Paws – the new little business that you all have been helping to support through purchases and by spreading the word. Tessa and I both thank you!

She seems to be doing OK, by the way.

I think she has put on a little weight, and her sensitive blue velvet coat is in good condition.

Although Miss Tessa so far doesn’t seem too great around other dogs, I think she will blossom into a wonderful companion for someone.

She’s very excited about meeting new people. And in my experience, she is neither afraid nor dominant with humans. She is rather independent, but I think she just needs a chance to bond with a person of her own.

While I cannot adopt Tessa, I will continue to do what I can to help her and dogs like her, through this blog, direct action like walking her and through the Beer Paws brand.

This past weekend, I added a new product to the line – turquoise bottle openers for collars and leashes.

As always, a portion of every sale will go towards animal rescue.

However, to keep the bookkeeping easy as the Beer Paws brand continues to grow, I’m shifting the donation from a dollar amount to a percentage – 10 percent, to be exact.

So, every time you buy something from Beer Paws, one-tenth of your purchase price will be designated to help an animal rescue organization like Midwest Adopt-a-Bull and dogs like Tessa.

Does that sound like a good deal to you?

Stay tuned for announcements of more Beer Paws products – and, of course, updates about beautiful Miss Tessa.

Congratulations to the winner of the Beer Paws giveaway – Emily from Adventures of a Dog Mom!

I live with two formerly wayward dogs. I care deeply about the environment, and I think gardening is a revolutionary act.

  1. I’m on my way to buy some beer paws. I wanted so badly to adopt Tessa that I took all 7 dogs to the humane society vaccine clinic and got their shots, heartworm tests, and heartworm prevention (I could not find their paperwork from last year due to us moving recently).

    $502 later everyone is up to date and ready to accept a new older lady friend with open paws. Unfortunately it can’t be Tessa since she doesn’t get along with other dogs very well 😦

    I want to at least help her out and get my husband and I a beer paw of our own 🙂

    • Aww! Thank you for being so interested in Tessa! I’m glad that at least your pack is now all up to date with their shots. Maybe another older lady friend will come along who will be more ready to befriend them.

      I’ll watch for your Beer Paws order! Be sure to send a picture of your pups with it after it arrives, so I can make them famous on Facebook! 🙂

  2. Emily is on a winning streak, I tell you. Now I’m going to have to order turquoise beer paws to match Ray’s summer collar. Are you going to be making pink ones too? I know several people who would like pink ones.

  3. Love it! Congrats on your growing business! You deserve lots and lots of success! 🙂

  4. Congrats!!! She is a beautiful pup – praying that her forever parents and home come soon:)

  5. That’s awesome! What a beautiful blue girl:)

  6. That’s so awesome that you donated the money from your Beer Paws sales to help Ms. Tessa. She is so pretty and I know that she’s the perfect dog for someone (I wish it was me but Dottie has decided that she doesn’t like other dogs around for some silly reason).

    And, I’m really excited to get my water bottle and turquoise Beer Paws opener… we’ll be testing them both out very soon and writing a post for you!

  7. Tessa is a beauty. I do hope she finds a loving home very soon.
