WAG TANTRUM BRINGS PAWSITIVELY
HEALTHY DOG FOOD TO THE MARKET

New Dog Food Line Offers Fresh, Nutrient-Rich, Organic Option

Wag Tantrum announces the launch of its new dog food line, featuring a wholesome blend of human-grade ingredients that provides dogs with the nutrients they need and flavor they love. Co-Founder Barbara Marshall first formulated the Wag Tantrum recipe for her Boxer, Lily. Marshall’s pup faced a devastating diagnosis of stage-two ear cancer before she was six months old. Through this, Lily dealt with other problems, including a sensitive stomach, and often refused to eat traditional dog food.

“Even though people love and want the best for their dogs, the products on the market do not reflect that,” said Marshall. “I wanted to make the recipes I created available to anyone who saw a need for it.” Marshall banded with co-founder Lisa Marshall to chase their passion and bring Wag Tantrum to dog owners. The pair sought out and partnered with top animal nutritionists to ensure the product they created was Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO) certified, and veterinarian approved and recommended. To test the recipes, Wag Tantrum partnered with nonprofit group Sav-a-Pet where the dogs were carefully monitored by veterinarians.

Barbara and Lisa were able to simultaneously help rescue dogs taken in by the organization heal, and work to perfect the Wag Tantrum recipe. Wag Tantrum currently offers two products – Adult Wag and TheraWag with more to be delivered in early 2018. Adult Wag is formulated for active, adult dogs, and TheraWag, which requires a veterinarian prescription, is a high-protein formula designed specifically for dogs recovering from surgery or illness where a high-protein diet will be of greatest value.

“We firmly believe in the ethical treatment of animals and want to offer them real food with nutrients that will enhance their lives. We’re proud and can’t wait to see owners make the switch to this healthier product,” said Marshall.






Houston Grand Opera Presents World Premiere of

The House without a Christmas Tree

Family-friendly holiday opera November 30–December 17
at George R. Brown Convention Center


Houston Grand Opera (HGO) continues its series of holiday operas with the world premiere presentation of The House without a Christmas Tree by the widely admired composer/librettist team of Ricky Ian Gordon and Royce Vavrek, in the HGO Resilience Theater at the George R. Brown Convention Center. The opera is based on the uplifting story by Gail Rock and the beloved 1972 television film of the same name about a family that is healed by the holiday spirit. A precocious daughter struggles to understand her father’s resentment of the holidays and longs for a beautiful Christmas tree like other families have, to “make her house look happy.”

Lots of high fives with a sold-out crowd for the 5th annual Touchdown for TEACH event made for an energetic evening as over 480 guests packed into the ballroom at River Oaks Country Club on Tuesday, November 14. Special Guest Peyton Manning, interviewed by Spencer Tillman, had supporters laughing and applauding as he remarked on his legendary football career as a Super Bowl-winning quarterback, five-time NFL MVP and the first starting quarterback in NFL history to win the Super Bowl playing with two teams. Questions covered a variety of topics from playing experiences to how important mentors are in life, keeping the crowd engaged.

Co-founders Susan D. Sarofim and Mary Yenik were cheering the huge success which raised a record breaking $1.1 million for the program that works to give educators in low-income school’s strategies in de-escalation and conflict resolution. The organization will net the entire amount raised thanks to Fayez Sarofim who underwrote the entire event. The first part of the evening brought a fun take off on one of Peyton’s commercials when he is in a bathrobe, as Susan Sarofim and Spencer Tillman donned matching white robes and presented one to Peyton with the TEACH logo. Laughter and applause from the audience kept the night in a winning game day mood.

Educators that work with TEACH have fewer disciplinary referrals, calmer and more productive classrooms, and improved student achievement. A special award was given to long time supporter Scott McMClelland and H-E-B. Principal Renita Perry of Attucks Middle School HISD spoke about the impact TEACH has in the school. TEACH has changed the lives of hundreds of students through the approach to coaching educators and has transformed how her educators interact with students, ultimately allowing the school to achieve better results. Event Chairmen Carol and Mike Linn and DeeDee and Wallis Marsh were thrilled with the evening and at the number of HISD schools that will benefit from guests’ generosity. Executive Director Kelly Krohn said, "We feel like we just went to the Super Bowl—thank you to everyone who made this event a success. TEACH already reaches over 8,000 students, and thanks to everyone’s help tonight, we can expand that impact.”
