Contest Winners Share their Prize

I am so humbled to know all of you.  What a special group of four legged and two legged friends I have found out there in Blogville.

We had a fun contest last week with some plans for some really great prizes.  When we announced the winners.
My Vickie asked them to send her an address so we could mail the prizes, and the most amazing thing happened. 

You see the winners don't know each other at all, yet in two seperate emails, each one asked that instead of sending them prizes, would we find a place of our choice to donate the cost of the prizes.

How cool is that.  I mean, yes, they were both concerend about the shipping costs because they are from way way way far away but for both of them to make the same request.   Well that is really heart warming.

So on behalf of Stella, Dex and Louis we are sending a check to help Gracie Lynn and her family with the cost of her surgery. 

We met them after reading Frankie Furters Blog where he sang their praises. 

You may want to read their blog and you will immediatly fall in love with this loving, sharing family. 

So I just want to thank you all for being ou great friends and family in cyberspace.  We feel very lucky.




That is absolutely pawsome.

The Slimmer Pugs were big helpers when we got help for Blueberry's surgery last November, and we've seen their generosity displayed time and time again! We can't think of somebody who is more deserving! Dogs and their bloggers are the best!

Hi Bert, great photo's, you have to be one of the most photogenic dogs we know.
We were so thrilled that we were able to help in this small way towards the vet bills - it's true that doggy people are the best and our Blog Land buddies are definitely the best!!
