Resty, Rainy Thursday!

Standard

Still Recovering!

Having sweet dreams....

Having sweet dreams….

I’m pooped – Mom’s pooped – Dad’s the only one who isn’t pooped because he didn’t help me and Mom with the Teaser OR my blogaversary and Forrest tribute………..what did he do?  NAPPED, READ HIS BOOK, WENT FOR A WALK – did all the stuff that Mom and I would have done if we hadn’t been busy!

But it was a wonderful day……….we had an impossible Teaser……….and we had a really GREAT time with Wags and Waves for Forrest.   Mom stayed at the computer so she could comment back to everyone who took time to visit us – because it was ALSO my blogaversary, I decided to make it a commentathon and I pledged that for every comment we’d make a $1.00 donation to the shelter where I was adopted from 16-1/2 years ago.   We knew Forrest would approve of this way to honor him!    So how did we do on the commentathon???

We had 70 comments from YOU!

That’s right – once Mom counted them up from that post it came to a total of 135 comments and when we took out my responses, it came to 70 – and that’s a nice donation indeed!

THANKYOU

You all are THE BEST………..I got to meet a lot of new friends too which is always nice.   We want to thank again Miss Sharon of Gentle Stitches who invited us to join her in getting the tribute started – but once we did – YOU did the rest…..YOU visited us and you left messages for Miss Bev and posted wonderful wags and waves on your OWN blogs.

We will be sending our check for $70 to Fauquier SPCA in honor of Forrest.   What a fabulous blogaversary celebration with a most happy ending to help out the small shelter where I spent my first days behind bars until my Mom and Dad found and adopted me!!

LUCKY ME! February, 2000

LUCKY ME! February, 2000

Tomorrow is CLEANING DAY – which means of course the fabulous team of Mr. and Mrs. Broomhilda will be here to get the house whipped (ouch) into shape!   No worries – I’ll stay one step ahead!

Love, Sammy

    • My Mom went outside yesterday in the rain to plant some stuff she’d bought – two lavender plants and some dianthus – then she decided she was tired of getting a wet head and came inside. Today will rain all day so the rest of her plants will just have to WAIT! I wonder if we will EVER see Mr. Sun again?!?!?!?!?! At least rainy days means lots of snuggles with Mom – right?

    • Thank you for the sweet comments….it was a complete pleasure to help bring about the tribute to Forrest and while I know your hearts still ache there without him at home, the Rainbow Bridge community is richer now that he’s among them. Sending hugs to everyone there……

      Love, Sammy (and Mom!)

  2. O M C Sammy…..sorry we missed all the excitement. What a wonderful tribute to Forrest and Happy Belated Blogaversary. Mom and I enjoy reading about your “active” life and all the interesting things you and your mom post on Teaser Tuesday. Friday and Saturday are our favorite days to read your posts.
    Hugs, love and wishing you many, many more posts,

    • Hi Charles! It was an amazing day with an impossible Teaser thanks to Speedy, and a great tribute to Forrest with the commentathon for my blogaversary. When we sent in the donation we asked them to show it as a tribute to him. I’m glad you like my blog posts my dear friend….that makes my heart happy!

    • We’re sure they will appreciate it Sundae…..the Fauquier SPCA is small and I bet if I stopped by I wouldn’t even recognize the place since it’s been so long since I was there….but all shelters have one thing in common – they need our support. I’m proud that we helped.

    • Hi Marty! The shelter was thrilled – they really were. Things have changed a lot there since I was incarcerated living with them but one thing hasn’t changed – the need to help the homeless animals. Have a super day – we’re enjoying the rain (sort of!).

    • Well, lots of people are way more busy every day than we are for sure BUT Mom wanted to sit at the computer so she could keep an eye on comments and thank everyone for visiting during the commentathon and at the same time keep up with the Teaser guesses…..she made herself busy really – we could have postponed the Teaser but she INSISTED – she’s so danged stubborn sometimes! HAHAHA

  7. That is so awesome and such a wonderful way to celebrate! So, I read the part “where I was adopted from 16-1/2 years ago” — and then I saw the date February 2000 in the picture caption. And I thought, oh that must be a typo. I can’t believe that the year 2000 is already 16 years ago! WHERE does the time go?
