Happy Dogs on Thursday, little friday and Thankful Thursday. Gretchen introduced FETCH a Cure on their blog already, so I’ll just share the items that caught my attention in the email that alerted us to the existence of such.
Sadly, Gg’s guilt trip isn’t going to work; we won’t be going tomorrow night, but I am going to explore and get to know the organization better and see if it is something we’d like to be affiliated with. However, the art below is ALMOST enough to tempt me to change my mind…
Those caught my eye in a Virginia Living email yesterday and led me to click over and learn a bit about FETCH and their upcoming pet parade and auction. I’d love to have any of those pieces of art, but I am especially torn between the bottom two… not that it matters since I’m not attending and there’s no online or proxy bid options that I can find. Booo!
Are there any cool pet charitable events in your community? I’ve seen a doghouse auction on another blog, and I have a local friend who hosts a pet food drive holiday party with her mom every year, but I’m curious…
See… We are pondering starting a canine – or pet – glaucoma charity. Mugsy and I were well on our way to starting our own charity to provide support for pets with mobility issues and their owners, but sadly his spinal cord strokes took his life before we got that off the ground, and carrying on without his cheerful, determined spirit was too much for me. (Why yes, I misted up just typing that.)
Abrupt transition to Thankful Thursday. I’m thankful that the heatwave has broken, and if not this afternoon, tomorrow for sure, Sissy will get her MUCH NEEDED walk. I’m thankful that we have had these precious, sweet dogs who have given us far more than they’ve required from us… and yes, our fur-kids tend to be high maintenance, but still, I stand by that statement. I’m also thankful to be knitting again!
What are you thankful for today?
