Help for Friends in Need


 Our 200th post received 100 comments!
Because this is a very good cause, we went well over the 1 pound per comment donation.

 
We wanted to have the girls with us when the donation was made to the Tarrant Food Bank, but their  hours are odd and only during the week, so we will have to make the donation during lunch time from work next week.

 
Can you find Lucie?

There she is. Now how do I get this trunk closed!

 

We would like to thank everyone that visited us on our special day. From the 100 posts, we pulled 10 lucky winners by using Random.org. And the winners are...
We have a little treat that we would like to share with our winners. Please email us your mailing address and your treat will be sent this week.

 ---------------------------------------------
Lastly, here are some pugs that need help.

First up is Pixie the Pug. She is terribly under weight and is fighting to get healthy. Our friend Clover did a post about her and we just had to help. If you have not visited Pixie yet please go check out her story and share the love.
 

Next are Penelope and Petunia. These two pugs are very ill and need our support. Our new friends at Purs n' Snorts did a post about them and we could not pass them by. Check out the Purs n' Snorts post for a cool contest that they are running in conjunction with making a donation. You can get all of the details on Penelope and Petunia at Kentuckiana Pug Rescue.

GoldenSamantha said...

That was a fabulous response and you are so wonderfully generous to have donated more. So many animals will benefit - It sends chills down my spine. And may Petunia and Penelope and Pixie find wonderful forever homes when the time is right. Such good work going on in Kentucky. The organization is lucky to have Addie and Lucie and her parents so involved and able to pass on the info. We'll pray and send a donation. You are the first blog I've visited since I got sick and I can't believe a randomizer picked my name. Thank you so much. With Love and Hugs and thanks for your comments xo Sam

Sweepy said...

Woof, Addie!
100 comments!
Yey, congrats to all the winners!
And a BIG Bark and TenPawsUp for calling attention to all those who needs help!

Hey, Lucie is now four months old!
Lucie looks like a lot like Addie a few months back. I'm sure when I get back Lucie and Addie will be of the same height!

And thanks for your bday greetings!
