South of Heaven tattoo artists with a young Reef. CONTRIBUTED

Hi friends! Reef the fox here with this week’s “Reef’s Report.” 

I have exciting news. Mom got me a brand new air conditioning unit for my room. Of course I am a good fox and share the room with my mom and other fox friends but we all know everything is mine. Never mind the fact that I may or may not have ruined the old one by lifting my leg right into the vents this past winter in protest when it was turned off. Whoops.

If you all were not aware, South of Heaven Tattoo, located in the Pink Plaza at MM 103, is having a fundraiser for us. Our friend and tattoo artist, Amanda is donating 20% of any fox inspired tattoos back to Pawsitive Beginnings. She has come up with a list of designs to choose from but will also consider other, simple, designs if you have one in mind. This fundraiser ends June 30, so get in there if you want some new ink and want to support the foxes. You just have to call the shop at 305-451-1200 to set up your appointment and pick your design.

Mom is going away this weekend to Pennsylvania. Her childhood friend is hosting a biker event in Johnstown, Pennsylvania, and a portion of the proceeds from this event are being donated to the foxes. How awesome is that? Now, I normally don’t like when mom goes away but since she will be helping to raise money for me to have nice things, I approve of this trip. 

Some fun events that are happened around town. On June 23, at the Caribbean Club, a game night fundraiser benefitted local musician Luke Sommer Glenn. With a $25 donation, people had multiple chances to win a tote bag full of a ton of fun swag plus a bottle of wine or liquor. We will also have a restaurant basket raffle and a wine pull. All the money raised from the event goes directly to Luke.

On June 25 from 10- to 11 a.m. at Harry Harris Park in Tavernier, the Monroe County Fire Rescue provided a gentle stream of misting water for children of all ages to enjoy in a safe and fun environment. It was great way to meet neighborhood firefighters, learn about fire prevention and cool off from the summer heat. If mom were in town I would make her take me down. I love playing in the rain and I love screaming like a fire engine so I think I would fit right in.

Anywho, that’s all for this week. Be sure to keep up with all of us here at Pawsitive Beginnings on our social media accounts. You can find them right on our website at

Until next time, Reef, over and out!
