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!
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
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!
Good Morning! ‘Tis me first today….Sammy’s Mom Pam – Sam is giving me a minute to horn in on HIS blog because I simply MUST take some time to thank each and every one of you who came by the blog yesterday or visited us on Facebook or sent an email to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY to me. Never in my many birthdays have I had one like yesterday’s. The video Michelle from MY THREE MOGGIES did with the participation of MANY of you was the most amazing thing I’ve ever seen and was a tremendous amount of work to put together. I am eternally grateful – Michelle you are a wonder and a VERY good friend. I hope each and every one of you feels THAT special on your birthdays – whenever they may be……..and thank you for being my friend as well as Sammy’s !
This time the hug is from ME !!!!
Love to you All…………….
Now that Mom has said that, I’ll move on to other things like thanking you PURRRRSONALLY for being part of my Mom’s birthday celebration. I think she might have used an entire box of Kleenex. 😀 😀 😀 😀
Have you all read about today being another very special occasion? Well it is…….
Take a moment today to remember all those little ones who didn’t quite make it to that loving forever companion. Light a candle if you are able, and if you can’t, light one virtually by sharing the event through social media. The larger this campaign gets, the more influential it becomes, the more lives it can save.
So many pets lose their lives every year never knowing how wonderful it is to be adopted and have a forever home………I know how wonderful it is, and you do too……..raising awareness DOES help.
I had lots of comments on the BEAUTIFUL photos from my Tuesday Teaser this week – they were courtesy of Miss Shell and she did the Tell All video too – she’s EVER so talented don’t you think? ANYWAY, I mentioned that she ahd her husband Mr. Craig have a pawsome travel blog that many of you might not know about BUT I had the wrong link for that blog (Naked Eye Travel) – I DID fix it later in the morning yesterday but if any of you tried to pop through to it and couldn’t get it, HERE is the correct link! If you love travel and love photos of places all over the world along with information on what to see and what to do while there, PLEASE visit Naked Eye Travel. It’s GREAT and we love it.
Mom and I will be spending lots of quality time together today because she knows that since she’s deserting me and Dad for TWO WHOLE DAYS I’ll be going from room to room searching for her and crying my golden eyes out for her. Yep – I’m a Momma’s boy and when she’s not here – no matter WHAT Dad does – I miss her dreadfully. Sniff……Mom is going to help me long distance with my bloggies until she’s home on Sunday but MIGHT not be able to help me respond to your comments so if you don’t hear back until Sunday – don’t panic – I’ll be there to respond sooner or later!!
When a guy loves his Mom as much as bacon – well – it’s REAL love!!!!
Have a super day everybody – and thanks again for making Mom’s birthday FANTABULOUS!!!
KITTY HUGS, SAMMY !!
