A Noble Cause

We just visited over at Nanook and Pooka's blog
(http://nanookthenewfy.blogspot.com/) and read this story about Archie, a therapy dog in need of an operation. That is his picture with one of the abused children he lives and works with. He needs an operation, and the home where he lives is short on funding for vet fees. Yes, Nanook and Pooka have a link where you can contribute to a fund to help pay for his operation. And yes, me and muzzer made a contribution in Oscar's memory, And yes, you can do that too.

And yes, you may now be excused to go click on the link and read the story.

Thank you for your kind attention.

Kissies to all

Thanks for letting us know about Archie -- as we told Nanook, we've heisted one of Mom's checks and are sending it off today.

Good work, Gussie,


Gus said...

Thanks guys. Be sure to "offer" to do something for your mom in return for the use of her check. Blogging moms work hard to keep up with our charities, huh?

Jake of Florida said...

We offered to take ourselves for a walk if she was too busy. Don't know why she said no. Do you, Gussie?

Thanks Gus, I'll head on over...J x

Gus said...

No clue buddy. Muzzer keeps offering to let Teka hold her own leash in the morning, so why can't you and JH do it?

Gus said...

Thanks Jax, be nice to your mom if she lets you pledge. Probably offering to take yourself for a walk won't work. Jake's mom has already nixed that one.

Oh--thanks for this tip. Archie is a pretty amazing dude!

There's a dog in my neighborhood who walks himself (he holds the leash while his owner strolls behind). I always yell at him. I'm a stickler for the rules. Only I should get to walk leash-free.

Hi gussie, Please thank your muzzer for me for providing my jie jie the link. We will be trying out the software soon. Thanks again!

Hey Gussie...thanks for the info on this great dog. We'll be glad to help! Lacie might be able to do therapy work someday, but I don't think it's quite my cuppa tea as heaven help us if somebody touched my paws and claws. Not pretty. Hey Man...didn't mean to pull on over on you...if Toad has another pawty, wanna come??? Scruffy PS bring munchies.

Gus--Who are the Artichokes??? That is the coolest! I mean--if you're going to be a vegetable Arty-chokes are pretty tuff!

UCSD are the Banana Slugs. That's pretty cool.
