Via a friend who lives down south, I just found out about a dog rescue organization that is very, very close to going under. It particularly touches my heart, because if my dear Hudson needed to be rescued from a pound, he is the kind of dog they would try to rescue, as he’s a big ol’ shaggy dog when he hasn’t been clipped recently. Also…the dog of my childhood was a samoyed/golden retriever mix who looked a lot like a grand pyrenees. Looking at these dogs is like looking Sarah in the face, 14 years after she passed.
I know winter makes money tight for people, so here’s what I’m asking: If you can donate, please donate what you can afford without leaving yourself in need. Whether or not you can donate, please boost the signal via your blogs, your facebook, and any other methods you have that might get this to other people who can help.
You can find them at www.bigfluffydogs.com. They posted about their need for funding on their facebook page here: http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=486508216181&set=a.73633861181.73948.28214716181&comments.
Hudson doesn’t have much interest in most toys, except the really expensive puzzle toys (which are a little out of our league for this year), so I am donating the $10 I would have spent getting him silly things to the Big Fluffy Dog Rescue.
This is probably my last post before Christmas, so I will wish all of you who celebrate Christmas a Merry Christmas. (for those of you who celebrate Channukah or Solstice, I apologize for not wishing you a happy holiday before your holiday. For those of you who celebrate kwanzaa, I may or may not post again before then, so Happy Kwanzaa. And as one of my uncles says every year, happy festivus to the rest of us!)
