Confession Friday: I’m Getting Old

My ID

My ID

It’s true. Tomorrow’s my birthday. June 1st. I will be two years old. Things I’ll be able to do because of this:

  • I’ll be old enough to watch PG-2 movies.
  • I will now shop in the “adult” section of the pet store.  I mean, adult vs. kitten, not naughty adult vs. PG-2 adult. Minds out of the gutter, please.
  • My haiku will become more mature, I believe, because my world views will contain more wisdom.
  • I can buy beer. Mom FOD just said I cannot, in fact, buy beer.
  • I can buy raw milk.  What is wrong with this country?!

What about you? What did you learn when you turned two? Share with me. Inwisdomate me with your tidbits. And if you think about me tomorrow, leave a note on my facebook page!

Love,

Crepes.

 

Fiesta!

Bachelor of the Week: Teddy!

No, it’s not a bear, it’s a dog! And his name is Teddy.

If you’re looking for a little trooper, Teddy is your guy. Abandoned at a shelter, Teddy survived a bout with distemper and malnourishment, and, if you haven’t guessed, this dear little guy is also blind. Now 9 months old, Teddy loves to play with other dogs, so he’d prefer to join a family with a few rambunctious doggie buddies. Playing outside is one of his passions, so a partner (or family) with a fenced in yard is preferred. Teddy also has a special talent of spinning yarns. Alright, he doesn’t spin yarns; that’s my job. He does, however, tell tales with his tail when he wags it in cute little shapes, and if that’s not special, I don’t know what is.

If you like taking walks and rubbing bellies, if the thought of watching Teddy sniff into the wind while he imagines his surroundings makes you happy, if you want to squeeze him and love him and pet him and call him George, consider adding Teddy to your family. He may be blind to the world, but not to your love, so get out there and meet this snuggle bear today!

If Teddy really touched your heart but you can’t adopt, please consider becoming his angel to help support Pets With Disabilities in the good work that they do for dogs like Teddy.

Donations Galore!

Today I’d like to send a thank you to some of the BlogPaws sponsors and also to PetMeds.com.  Because of them, I was able to make donations to two shelters. The first, Pets with Disabilities, got a package of Hartz dog pads, various samples of food, flea meds from VetGuard, and coupons for free bags of Purina grain free dog food, all from the sponsors from BlogPaws.

The second, Cat Guardians, received a mix of things that came from both the BlogPaws sponsors and from Petmeds.com. They got lots of samples from The Honest Kitchen (they generously gave me everything on their table at the end of the expo so I could donate it), flea medications, ear cleaner, toys, and dental wipes from PetMeds.com, and 16 lbs of cat food from Petcurean.

(Please note, I have not myself sampled many of these items, so I cannot endorse their efficacy, safety, or tastiness. I merely acted as the medium for the generous donations.)

So a hearty thank you to all those that donated! You were all very generous and your items went to two great places! Have you all donated anything lately? Did you take photos? Share with me!

Love,

Crepes.
