A Tribute Day and a Pre-Tease Reminder!

It’s a TWO-FER Day!

I have two impawtant things to tell you today so listen up……..

FIRST – I’m reminding you what tomorrow is with this:

TEASER-PRETEASEMONDAY

Be Purrrrpared for the Teaser post to pop up tomorrow at SOME TIME…….and be forewarned that it’s a GUEST TEASER and you know those are usually tough so study up everyone – be ready for a challenge!    OK??????

SECOND thing is special……

Many/most of you know that Fozziemum (Bev Green) from All Fur One and One Fur All and her family lost their dog Forrest last week to the Bridge.   He had the BEST send-off with his family spoiling him by helping him with his special wish list of things he’d always wanted to do (or food he wanted to eat!).  Now everyone is coming slowly to grips with the fact that Forrest is gone………..his family is having a very hard time adjusting, as we all do when we lose part of our hearts.    Thank goodness for SUPER DUPER caring friends like Sharon at Gentle Stitches who also lives “Down Under” where Forrest’s family is.   Sharon had a wonderful idea which we promised to help her with to set aside ONE DAY to honor dear Forrest in a special way.   

May 10th is the day – and it will officially be “Wag or Wave for Forrest Day” all across the blogosphere.   That’s right – all of us who want to pawticipate can post a photo of us either wagging a tail or a flag or a paw to “wag or wave” in honor of Angel Forrest and show our support to his family.    Isn’t that a great idea???    I designed this poster in honor of this special day – if you choose to post for Forrest that day, you can show this badge if you like and maybe use it as a link-up to Fozziemum’s blog so people can stop by and leave her  a message???   

Here’s the poster:

FORRESTDAYBADGE

Here is the link/address to “All Fur One And One Fur All” – their blog:    https://ourpawpad.wordpress.com/

We want the idea for this special day to spread like wildfire so if you can publicize it on your Facebook page or your Blog – please do and feel free to use the poster for that if you want to.   Remember, the day is May 10th and it’s “Wags and Waves For Forrest” day!   

Some of you may know that May 10th is my FIFTH BLOGAVERSARY too – and for the occasion instead of a party, I’m going to have a commentathon – if you stop by here on May 10th and comment on my blog, my Mom will donate $1.00 per comment to our local shelter which is full of dogs and cats who need a home.    They can always use help so I thought it would be a nice way for ME to honor Forrest by making a donation to them in honor of him.   Somehow I think he’d like that don’t you????

A big thanks to Sharon for coming up with the idea of “Waves and Waves” because we think it’s GREAT and we were excited when she asked us to help get the word out…………….now I have to work on my photo for that day – – – – waving and wagging is something I used to do a long time ago when I was a kitten – but I can always photoshop a wag or wave I suppose!!!!!!!

Hope you’ll join in the fun on May 10th – We’ll “show the love” to Miss Bev and the whole gang at her home Down Under……..

See you tomorrow for the Teaser!!

        • Forrest was a most lucky boy to have such an amazing family AND an amazing life……and like Frank Sinatra, I think he’d say “I DID IT MY WAY”…..which makes it even better! We were happy to help Miss Sharon – she’s a good friend and I’m glad you have her right there in Victoria…….we hope tons of bloggers wag and wave on the 10th!

          Love, Sammy (and Pam too!)

          • Sammy i think indeed he was happy..he was a smiler 🙂 and yes he was tough..once should be enough but twice bitten! we wonder at some issues being related to either the bite or antivenom..maybe when i can think i will chat to Dr Mark..if he can chat without being upset..nicest man ever Sammy..we could not ask for a better vet ..Loves Fozziemum xxx

          • It sounded to me like Forrest was in the best possible vet care – between that and you all getting him the care he needed as soon as possible after those snake bites – well – we don’t want to think about how it could have turned out! Anyway, I would think Dr. Mark will have some ideas about the bites or antivenom serum relative to Forrest’s health….it’s a good question to ask!

            Hugs, Sammy

          • He was under good care…and indeed prompt care for those bites was paramount..any longer and we would have had the choice taken from us in a most awful way..we will be taking Doc to see Dr Mark soon as his weight needs checking and he will need more of his enzymes or as we refer to them ‘Enzo’s’..he has not gained weight but he has not lost any..important i keep on top of that..might be too soon to ask Dr Mark..one of us may lose their composure! Loves Fozziemum xxx

    • We thought so – Miss Sharon is a nice lady who has met Miss Bev and her family and she knows how much it would mean to them to have everyone backing this tribute to their Forrest.

    • Would be cool if everybody had a commentathon on their own blogs that day and pledged to support their own local shelter wouldn’t it? I hadn’t thought of that but some might do that on their own……….I bet Forrest is smiling right now knowing about the 10th!

  7. You know that both Kaci and Kali were shelter dogs on death’s row. I’ll give you bird feed and give you 10 per cent of what you collect. How about some others?

    Like

    • Cool!!! I didn’t know Kaci and Kali were once on death row……isn’t it sad that so many are there and don’t get saved to live “the life”. I was in the shelter because I was abandoned by my Mom (we think) under an old house and was screaming loud enough a passerby heard me and called animal rescue – they crawled under the house and got me and took me to the shelter where I only had to be for one day before my Mom and Dad came looking for a cat to adopt. Lucky me – I was THE ONE! The commentathon will benefit that shelter here in my town – my first “home” until I got my FOREVER home.

      Hugs, Sammy
