Furendly Friday – on Thursday!

We’re pawticipating in Pet Blogs United’s Friendly Friday. To pawticipate, you just gotta grab the badge and then tell us abouts one of your furends that you want us all to meet.

Screaming Mimi

Now you’re prolly all – Crazy Mayzie! It’s Thursday, not Friday! But I have a very special and oh-so-impawtant reason for introducing this furend to you today and not tomorrow.

Everybuddy, I’d like you to meet Kona! Isn’t she just Most Beautiful?

Her mom writes a blog about their life together called Running with Kona. Now, as you mighta guessed from the title, Kona and her mom like to go running every day. And they luvs it so much that Kona’s mom has decided that she’s gonna run in the NYC Marathon this weekend!

And not only that, she’s been lucky enough to get a spot on Fatty’s LIVESTRONG Team. Mr. Fatty is a cycling blogger who lost his wife last year because of that bad breast cancer and since then, he’s done lots of super wonderful stuff to raise money for the LIVESTRONG Foundation.

Anyways, Kona’s mom pledged to raise 3500 green papers for the LIVESTRONG Foundation. And she’s so, so, SO close. So far, she’s raised 3210 green papers! Isn’t that amazing? But she’s really, really trying hard to raise the rest of it by this weekend (which is why I’m telling you about her and Kona today). And I thought that maybe, since we all hates that bad cancer thing so much, we could help her along her way. As she put it on her bloggie yesterday, “No donation is too small and every dollar helps fund the cancer snubbing services that LIVESTRONG brings to cancer patients around the globe.”

If you’re able to help, you can go directly to her fundraising page by clicking here. Now, if you can’t help with green papers, that’s A-OK! But I sure hope you’ll take a second to go over to her bloggie and tell her that you think what she’s doing is a Most Wonderful thing! I know she (and Kona!) would appreciate it lots!

  10. Thanks so much Mayzie for letting us meet Kona. She is really pretty and looks very fit. Her mom sure is doing a super duper thing. We just want to thank her and everyone else that helps to raise money for Livestrong and for cancer in general. It is a horrible disease and needs to be deaded. We sure will go visit her site. Take care Mayzie and big thanks to you too for keeping us up to date on all these wonderful events. Take care.

  11. What a pretty girl Kona is! Then again, with all that running, she’s bound to have an awesome physique! Wonder if she’s goning to get to be in the marathon with her mom? That would be pretty cool, no?

    Oh Mayzie!! I saw comments on my blog from your friends and wondered what you were up to =) Thank you so, so much for spreading the word for me. As I’ve been running around, making sure not to forget to pack my running shoes, figuring out the NY subway system and generally feeling crazy, your post gave me just the boost of energy I need! I can’t wait to report back to everyone about how the weekend goes.

    Yay marathons! Boo cancer!!

  14. Mayzie! It is most nice to meet Kona. I would go running every day if my ape wasn’t so lazy. No really, I swear. I just gotta get out of the snuggle ball.

    We are curious where you stood on the Extraterrestrial Commission measure.

    And our ape sez not to be too jealous. She could not see or even really hear those guys from TV. But she saw some funny stuff!
