See, this has been kind of a hard year around our house and my momma has been pretty sad. And it seems like the bad things she reads about on the interwebz about animal and mini two-leggers being hurt by other humans hit her harder than usual. And sometimes she says she kinda loses faith in peoples.
So that’s why I told her that we HAD to have Rescue Me Week. Cuz it would show her just how many Most Wonderful humans (and dogs and kittehs) there are out there. And boy, was I ever right!
All in all, we had 180 POSTIES abouts Rescue Me Week with 233 Adorable Adoptables that got talked about! And it wasn’t just doggies and kittehs that got talked about. We had rabbits, pigs, a horse, a goat and birds – including a rooster! How nifty is THAT?
Everybuddy keeps telling us thank you for doing this but it kinda makes us feel weird. Cuz we really didn’t do anything all that special. It was all our furends who wrote up a postie or took the time to read one and sends good vibes to that pet who was looking for their Most Perfect Home That Ever Was. If it hadn’t been for every single one of you, Rescue Me Week wouldn’t have been what it was.
And then there’s our furends like Corbin and Love and a Six Foot Leash and Two Pitties in the City and Dog Foster Mom and Pauley James who open their homes and their hearts to foster pets. Or the peoples like my Angel Donna Fostermommy who go out and rescue doggies like me who might not have lived if it weren’t for her.
So, really, what me and my mom did is so teeny tiny. But on the other paw, I guess if we can all do something – no matter how small – maybe one day every pet will have a warm, safe home filled up with luvs.
Okay, so here’s what everybuddy’s been waiting for! Mom took ALLLL those names, printed them out, and then cut them up (with my snoopervision, of course).
Sisfur Abby helped, too!
Brudder Ranger oversaw everything to makes sure everything went according t0 the rules.
Then we put them ALL in a bowl.
And then we had dad draw out five (cuz he doesn’t really know any of my bloggie furends so he’s impartial).
And those 5 were…
