It's been a busy week, with Rescue Me, Maybe officially launching this past Monday. Boy, you think writing a book is the hard part... but the work has really only just begun once it's published! Anyway, let's get to the followin' up.
On Wednesday, I shared photos of our angels lost to cancer and pledged part of the profits on the book to Morris Animal Foundation. Lots of folks had really sweet comments, and I was especially touched by the other folks who have also lost furry friends to cancer. There's too many of us in the club. Hopefully that will change one of these days.
On a more fun note, Jan of Wag N Woof Pets added to her comment, "It looks like your family has a thing for beagles and goldens too!" We did have a lot of beagles in the family (4) and goldens (2) over the years. Right now, we've only got 1/2 a beagle! (Rita) Such fun breeds - as Jan knows with 2 beagles and 1 golden.
Organic Designer Dog Breeds
In my post on Unique Breeds, there were some fun comments.
Roxy the Traveling Dog said "Someone told me just the other day that Roxy is a poma-huahua. A true one of a kind, BOL." Roxy is the cutest poma-huahua you'll ever see!
My sis said that her dog, Indy, "is lab + bad attitude = Labrabad." Or maybe a BadLabratude.
Pam of Words With Wieners said, "I think Rita's gorgeous(!), [ed. note: so do I!] and she is definitely her own unique breed." The funny thing is that we've seen a couple of dogs that look a LOT like Rita at the beach here. One dog could have been her sister! The others were also adopted from Mexico. I even had a woman walk up to us once and say, "Did you get her from Mexico? She's got that look..." So, apparently there are a lotta sheagles running around in Mexico!
Kat of Us on Cloud 9 said that her Beamer, who I adore cuz he's SO cute, is "a one of a kid Germador Sheptriever." Heee.
