Hot Dog Month-The Larry Phx

To celebrate National Hot Dog Month this July, Chef Luis Arellano from The Larry Phx has created a special menu of hot dogs that put the traditional ketchup and mustard combo to shame. Every week, guest can try a new recipe.

July is National Hot Dog Month and we're celebrating at The Larry with great special recipes:

  • Big Mac Dog (July 1-3) - mustard-thousand island dressing, American cheese, lettuce, onion, sesame seeds, pickles (if viewers still want to try this recipe, they can ask for it although the week is over)
  • Larry Sonoran Dog (July 8-12) - Bacon, tomato, avocado cream, mustard, ketchup, cotija, mayo
  • Kimchi Dog (July 15-19) - Cheese sauce, house pickles, gochujang mayo
  • Okonomoyaki Dog (July 22-31) - Savory cabbage pancake, plum sauce, bonito, nori, kewpie mayo

Hot Dog Tips:

  • Quality ingredients are key buy fresh bread and try to look for 100% beef franks like a Hebrew National. This will automatically make the recipe taste better.
  • Experiment with your topping choices the bolder the better! Caramelized onions, jalapenos, even crumbled potato chips for added crunch work.
  • Sauces can make a big difference adding mustard to Thousand Island dressing is the perfect way to make your dog "animal style". Mango salsa with a sprinkle of cotija cheese on top adds a Mexican twist.

Lost & Found Dogs

This weekend is notoriously the biggest for Maricopa County Animal Care & Control. And, today, Friday, July 5, 2019 is expected to be the busiest intake day of the year. They see a number of dogs who have run away, scared from the firework noises, and are now lost looking for their families. The shelter is expecting to deal with upwards of 100 pets or more coming into the shelter, with officers out in force beginning at 7am collecting lost and stray animals. If you have found a lost pet, doors to the West Shelter open at 9am where you can drop pets off. Also, big news, at the East Shelter, the quarantine has been lifted.

We are encouraging people to immediately report their lost animals to our "Lost and Found" line at 602-372-4598. Animals reported there will be placed on our interactive map for people to search. We also ask for the general public to come in and physically walk up and down the aisles of the kennels to look for their pets. Any pet that has a microchip will be driven straight home and avoid coming into the shelter. The only animals we will bring in are those where we cannot locate the owner.

1. Gather scented items your dog may recognize (blankets, clothing even dog poop from the yard!) to leave where dog took off

2. Create an effective flyer (this is key, and most flyers just don't work the way they should.

3. Get help from friends and family, as well as the shelter where you adopted the dog.

We The Classy

Fashion bloggers earn a range based on the brand and the engagement of their audience. It also depends if they earn commissions from, but can start earning about $50 a collaboration early on with 5000 followers and go to $1000 per collaboration when they are upward of 100k followers, which brings it to about 1% of (real) audience. That is not a rule, there's more exceptions than rules in this industry.

Venessa Kaufman of We The Classy highly recommend keeping it a side hustle for a while before jumping out of your current career. It is the type of business that ebbs and flows based on marketing dollars, seasons, social media apps... before going full time, she suggests building it into a business with systems first, and be prepared for fluctuations in your income.
