PET PARADE!!

Today is the big day of Design Gives Back Pet Parade Party hosted by Kelee at Katillac Shack. You know, awhile back I posted a picture of my Milo wearing a decorated scarf which earned $10.00 toward raising funds for displaced animals caused by housing foreclosures. What an incredible endeavor this turned out to be on behalf of all of the people involved with the Pet Parade. The $2,000.00 goal was reached when bloggers in 43 states decorated and submitted pic's of their favorite pet (including a ferret!!) to Kelee. Proceeds went to the Northland Pet Pantry. Each link to Kelee's blog will earn $3.00. In addition, all comments will earn $1.00.

Today you can go to Kelee's website and view a video, not only showcasing my little Milo, not even all of the other SWEETEST blogger's pets, but to hear the plight of these special, displaced pets and their families and to see the joyous response from the pantry to our donation. I am so proud to see Milo in this video...it was so well made. It made me honest to goodness have a BIG cry...the music alone is worth it. And when you see all these adorable pets wearing the yellow scarf, you will realize how special and fortunate our pets are and how other's aren't. The video is incredible...


Now that Milo is a rising star, I thought I would show all of you a picture of him back when he was just an 8 week old mutt!! Believe it or not, he turned 5 years old last week. I wish they were like elephants (not in size!!).


Enjoy the video and I will see you in time for Rhoda's party!!

Job well done. And Milo, well! Are you ready for the paparazzi to come calling? I hope he keeps his head on straight. I know Lindsay Lohan is fond of the canine stars.

Oh Janie,
I would love to meet up in the Windy City for some Christmas Shopping! That's a great idea! I'll e-mail you. When I was little and living in Peoria we always went to Chicago at Christmas Time for our shopping. I remember going to Macy's and sitting on Santa's lap. I still have the pic. I am excited! Hugs, Cindy

~Ah! Jane, Milo is simply precious!
I'll go and check out his video too.

We could be walking partners for sure if we were closer! How fun would that be! It's always more enjoyable to walk with someone else and talk. I hope you are doing well my friend. Thanks for your sweet words today.

~Happy Fall~ Melissa :)
