A Thanksgiving Message from 4-Legger

November 22, 2018

Happy Thanksgiving from 4-Legger Organic Dog Shampoo

Thanksgiving is the perfect time to reflect on the past year, to be grateful for the good things that have happened, opportunity to spend time with family and friends and to step back from the normal routine for a few days.  

Normally during this happy time It’s easy to see the connection between the good things in life and the feelings of happiness that accompany them. For me, one of the most significant parts of Thanksgiving is understanding the difficult experiences and events that have been endured that have resulted in feelings of grief, loss and sorrow.

Thanksgiving falls on November 22 this year and historically, that date has been filled with many difficult things. In recent years, it was 11/22/10 when my dog Gracie was diagnosed with a spinal stroke that left her partially paralyzed. On 11/22/11 my dog Henry Clay had a second surgery for his cancer that had returned. And then as many of you already know, it was on 11/22/13 that Henry Clay finally lost his life to cancer.  A few hours later that same day I was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer.
 
November 22 is not the best day for good memories for me.  But here’s the thing; When you're in the midst of the fire, you don't often see the positive things to come that will redeem the struggle and heartache. Today, as I reflect I see it clearly how much I have to be thankful for. I believe that it takes going through these difficult times, filtering through the rubble and finding a way to thankfulness. I believe thankfulness lives in the heart where both joy and sadness have been. And I believe thankfulness occurs when you’re able to see a new purpose or a new vision arise from something that previously was only associated with heartache. 

4-Legger is the living and breathing proof of that reality for me. It has been inspired by significant loss but has resulted in significant gain in helping to make all of our dogs lives healthier lives and be free of many of the toxins that make them sick. We have a long way to go but we’re doing it - with your help, we’re making a difference!  We are so grateful for all of you who have supported
4-Legger and who advocate for safer products.  

That’s why we started our annual Thankful Friday sale.  We like to call it that as a reminder that we have so much to be thankful for. Thanksgiving this year has been even more meaningful because of all the past difficulties which have allowed me to reflect on where I’ve been, but also to see where I’m going through the mission of 4-Legger.
 
We want to share this time of Thanksgiving with you and invite you to take part in our Thankful Friday sale.  We will be offering a 20% discount through the weekend and on the sales that we get on Friday 11/23, we will donate an additional 20% of those sales to the Canine Cancer Foundation.  You can help us fund research so that this awful disease can be cured.

Here’s what you need to know.  You can stock up on our USDA organic dog shampoo, dog deodorizing sprays, apple cider vinegar rinse, dog paw balm, and our dog dental powder with this discount code when you’re checking out:

ThankfulFriday2018

The sale will run through Sunday 11/25/18 til midnight.  

There are a few exclusions (animalEO oils and 2oz shampoo sizes primarily)
Finally, because we place a high value on spending meaningful time together with our own families and friends, we will be enjoying the holiday weekend in the same way that we hope you will.  Any email or phone communications sent to us will be attended to next week after the holiday.  If something messes up, don’t worry - we’ll work it out together!

With that said, all of us at 4-Legger are very grateful for each one of you and wish you a safe, joyful and peaceful Thanksgiving.

Blessings to you,

Melissa
