A BIG Blogville
to everyone out dere!
Today me is busy wit me Christmas shoppin so me is gonna let Da Momma do mee postee since her has been
slackin' off busy herselfs lately.
Here be MEE so ya'll remembers what me looks like
Thank you, Amber, for giving me this honor to borrow your blog today...
As most of us already know, Blogville has been grieving this weekend over the tragic events in Houston early on Friday morning. Amber had a couple of posts ready to go, but her and I discussed it and decided to post this instead.
Once again Blogville has come together as one to offer support and a shoulder to cry on (as I'm sure all of us have shed tears this weekend). And I also know that all of us have given our furbabies lots of extra love and hugs this weekend too. It's also made many of us slow down and realize that anything can happen without warning so we must live every day as if it were our last.
(Thank you, Momma Tea, for the beautiful tribute photo)
Yes, my friends...Blogville has come together in the traditional Blogville way. The "Chip In" fund has far surpassed its goal and money is still pouring in from around the world. I'm adding the Chip-In link to my sidebar as it will be open until February 15.
"What's Her Name", (our very own Agnes from Dachies With Moxie) will be making a quilt including real pieces of Blogville that our friends will be sending in. We know first hand how beautiful her work is since Amber was the first recipient of a "Agnes Original" placemat. Agnes, I hope you can make a quilt as big as a football field.
Frankie had a very good post yesterday with all the information on the different things Blogville is doing for Sandra and the Houston Pittie Pack.
to visit Frankie's post from yesterday.
In summary, the world will go on and Blogville will go on, but Sandra's world has come to a grinding halt, suspended in animation, as I'm sure she's re-living that horrible night over and over again as we all would if it happened to us. But this will pass with time and only the good memories will remain.
Blogville is here for you Sandra whenever you need us.
WE ALL LOVE YOU!
On a different topic....
Remember Bailey, the little Santa Paw's helper who was in the Photo Contest on Facebook?
I'm happy to announce that Bailey came in 2nd when the contest ended. Again...THANK YOU to all of you who cast a vote for Bailey on Facebook.
Finally, I would like to leave you with this video that a friend sent me this morning. Seeing it made me remember that Shelby from the Pittie Pack was a rescue dog found in a Walmart parking lot near death and then given a beautiful, happy, full life by Sandra and the Pittie Pack.
Enjoy the video of
THE RESCUE OF CORA
and remember all the beautiful animals in shelters and rescue organizations waiting for their forever homes. We also remember those still on the streets waiting to be rescued. Our Christmas wish would be to bring as many of these furbabies to their forever homes in time for the holidays.
Thank you for letting me take Amber's place today. She'll be back again later this week unless she runs up my charge account and I have to put her into a "Time Out" for about 10 years!
Happy "Last Week Before Christmas" to all of you!
