High-tail it to Shelby’s Auction!

Hi everybuddy! In case you forgot, this is THE weekend for Shelby’s Auction, hosted by the Most Adorable JD and Max! It’ll run through Sunday night so get out your mom’s magic plastic card and start bidding.

In case you’ve been digging in your yard and haven’t heard, Shelby is a sweet pit bull who was rescued by Sandra and the Houston Pittie Pack. She was laying in a parking lot, terribly injured, blind in one eye, and covered with bite wounds. Well, between the love and care of Sandra and the support of Mona’s mommy, darling Shelby went from this:

to this:

in just a few weeks! Doesn’t she look AMAZING?

But her medical bills are climbing and they just learned that Shelby is gonna have puppies! (They think she had just gotten pregnant when Sandra found her.) And with Sandra the only one really working in her family right now, they’re gonna need our help now more than ever.

So please, please, pretty please head on over to the auction and see if there’s anything you’d like to bid on. And even if there’s not, you can also leave a donation.

I know times are tight for everybuddy but even just one green paper will help. I know it will!

And I’m gonna leaves you with this Most Wonderful movie abouts another white pit bull who was given a second chance at life. I know lots of you have prolly already seen Dolly’s story but if you haven’t, please watch what luv can do!

  6. Hiya gorgeous Miss Mayzie,

    Oooh, how we’ve MISSED you! We’ve been having a huge catch up with your blog – we loved that last WW you did, it might become our pinup, he he! Also, the video you posted yesterday made FH get all leaky, she thought it was just wonderful!!

    We wanted to share something with you – we are very proud of this and we know you’ll like this story as well as understand it! We went out on our morning walk REAL early today – it was a lovely day and we watched a lovely sunrise over the sea and then romped and ROMPED in the fields. After nearly two hours (it really WAS a beautiful start to the day!) FH said we’d best start heading home again. Well, we were running ahead of her when we saw him over the sea defences wall – a super-cute puppy. Well, we really wanted to meet him – our tails were wagging OFF! FH didn’t know what we were looking at as she was a little way behind but knew we’d spotted something so dashed over, just as this puppy and his owner appeared up the stairs.

    The owner explained to FH that this super-cute puppy was a rescue – he’d had him for one week. He was a cross between a pittie and a staffie and had spent the last 8 months chained in a yard, not being walked, not being moved anywhere, not meeting anyone – human OR hound – and not being fed well as well as being beaten and yelled at. He said that he know staffies and pitties have a bad rap but he believed this pup had good left in him even after all he’d been through. Well, we totally agreed!

    This pup greeted us nicely, he sniffed us all over and then started wagging his tail and wanting to play! His owner was delighted – and said something that we were SO excited about! Apparently, we were the very FIRST doggies this poor pup had ever met, prob since he’d been born! His owner said he’d been too nervous to introduce him to another dog until now but we seemed confident and social – our chests puffed up with HUGE pride! And this pup was as good as gold and as gentle as can be. We loved him – and we told him we’d like to meet again! His owner kept telling him how proud he was of him for interacting with us so well – he was better behaved than we were actually as we got a little TOO excited in the end and sadly had to be taken away!

    BUT – the owner was so pleased at the interaction that we’ve agreed to meet him for a few mins every morning to help him with his socialisation! We were so excited by all of this that we actually FORGOT to ask what our cute new pal’s name was! FH is hoping she can get some photos and do a post about him – she says that you rescue doggies are so amazing, to still trust after everything you’ve been through – and then she got all leaky again….!

    Gosh, we’ve wittered on a bit! Anyways, thanks SO much for mentioning the auction. Bids have been coming in left, right and centre, it’s so exciting!

    Schnauzer snuggles – JD and Max.
