Jack & Ellen Brandt with a heart of Tibetan Spaniels adopted 5-year-old Tashi, and Dharma who had been rescued from a puppy mill.
Dharma not considered to be as prolific a producer as Tashi had been less traumatized by her time at the mill and quickly adapted to life outside.
Tashi however had birthed many litters. As a result, she had no muscle tone at all (even in her rear end), she could barely walk, had chronic ear infections and her feet were splayed.
After only six weeks with Dr.O'Sullivan's holistic regimend, Jake & Ellen have watched Tashi blossom into the dog she was always meant to be.

PAWsitive Radio presented by Team Toby. Join host Charmaine Hammond, professional speaker, bestselling author and president of Team Toby as she interviews Rita of SparkySnacks.ca!
Rita’s dog, Sparky, was an amazing 17 year old cocker spaniel that passed away after a heroic battle with heart disease and cancer. He inspired Rita to be stronger, go further, and showed her that no hurdle is insurmountable. He was the bravest, strongest, and most cuddle-some pooch ever and will be so missed.
Sparky was diagnosed with cutaneous lymphoma and a dilated cardiomyopathy (flubby heart). He often struggled with his appetite due to his medical treatments, so Rita decided to bake treats and cook foods to satisfy his nose and ease his tummy! Sparky was a very fussy little pooch and it was ever the challenge to satisfy his palate and be tender with his tummy, so you know if he liked it, it was fussy pooch approved!

Over an astounding career in which she has sung all styles of popular music as leader and as support singer, Merry Clayton is vocal royalty.
Among the legends Clayton has supported are Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin, The Rolling Stones, Quincy Jones, Etta James, Barbara Streisand, Michael Jackson, Bob Dylan, Bobby Womack, Art Garfunkel, Tina Turner, Tom Jones, Diana Ross, Leon Russell, The Jazz Crusaders and Elvis Presley.
From Hollywood to Broadway and around the world, Merry brings audiences and peers to their feet. In 2013, her amazing life story is covered in the award-winning background singers’ documentary, 20 FEET FROM STARDOM.
This encore in the spotlight coincides with the long-overdue release of Sony Legacy’s THE BEST OF MERRY CLAYTON, celebrating her golden years on Ode Records.
After growing up in the church in New Orleans and Los Angeles, her first pop recording was a duet with Bobby Darin in the early '60s. Merry became featured singer with Ray Charles’ girl group The Raelets in the mid-'60s, appeared on several of Joe Cocker’s releases including album WITH A LITTLE HELP FROM MY FRIENDS and single “Feelin’ Alright,” on Lynyrd Skynyrd’s anthem “Sweet Home Alabama,” and originated the role of “Acid Queen” on the inaugural recording of the rock opera TOMMY with The Who & the London Symphony Orchestra.
But Clayton will forever be recognized for her impassioned "rape/murder" solo on The Rolling Stones' 1969 classic “Gimme Shelter.”
That led to Lou Adler signing Merry in 1970 to his Ode Records and her debut solo album, GIMME SHELTER - her first of three for the company.
Those who know him describe him as an old soul. Charming, wise, and passionate, Gedeon Luke is a serious young man on a mission. Inspired by the Gospel infused sounds that spearheaded a cultural movement (Sly Stone, Curtis Mayfield, Al Green, Ike and Tina Turner), Gedeon’s aim is to bring back music with no boundaries. Love, Peace, and Soul for all. Gedeon is no stranger to life’s hardships. In his 23 years he has seen it all. “I grew up in the projects in Memphis,Tennessee...literally on the streets where I was surrounded by gang violence and drug abuse. It deeply affected my family and our ability to think.” Music and faith were two things that were always available in his household. Through them, Gedeon found refuge and transcendence. In late 2008 Gedeon was introduced to writer/producer Marc Swersky (Joe Cocker, Roger Daltrey). They immediately struck up a kinship and went to work with one purpose - share Love, Peace, and Soul. After writing and recording dozens of songs over a two year period, Gedeon began touring the Tri-state area honing in further on his message. Audiences were captivated with the Mayfield like, “Soul Child” and his personal shout out for togetherness, “Standing On Top Of the World”. Songs like these would later stamp the shape and sound of his message. In January of 2012, Gedeon set out to make the record he always wanted. With Marc producing and a few reels of 2” tape, they cut the record over a four day period at MSR Studios, NYC. He and his band, The People, along with featured musicians Jack Daley (Lenny Kravitz), James Poyser (The Roots), and Bobby Sparks (Prince), fostered a sound that was live and raw -

I am thrilled to welcome the amazing Alan White to NWP!
Alan White is considered by many to be one of the greatest rock drummers of all-time. With forty-plus years of performance experience and appearances on over fifty albums, Alan's dossier reads like a who's-who of rock legends.
1969, Alan received what he thought at the time to be a prank phone call, but was actually John Lennon calling to ask Alan to join his 'Plastic Ono Band'. The next day Alan found himself learning songs in the back of an airliner en-route to Toronto with John Lennon, Yoko Ono, Eric Clapton and Klaus Voorman. The ensuing album, 'Live Peace in Toronto', sold millions of copies, peaking at number 10 on the pop charts.
Alan's association with Lennon continued, recording singles like 'Instant Karma' and the subsequent landmark album, 'Imagine', with Alan providing drums for the title song, 'Jealous Guy', and 'How Do You Sleep at Night'. Alan's work with Lennon led to an introduction to George Harrison, who asked Alan to perform on the album 'All Things Must Pass', including the hit single, 'My Sweet Lord', released in 1970.
In June 1972, while on tour with Joe Cocker, Alan got a phone call from his manager, Tony Dimitriades, who said that Yes wanted him to join the band. His current tour was ending so he flew back to England for a meeting with Jon Anderson and Chris Squire, who told him that he was joining Yes or "they were going to throw me out the third-story window," recalls Alan.
In recent years, Alan has performed with a variety of artists, including Spencer Davis, The Ventures, Charlie Daniels, Eddie Money, and Roger Fisher, to name but a few.
