Since it has been quite a long time since we have been active, we are going to be Under Construction for a while - trying new fonts, designs, and updating our sidebar stuff. Hopefully we will get it how we like it soon so it won't change too much!

Also - Can someone tell me how to get rid of the giant gap below this notice - I cannot figure out how to do it - thanks!!

Help Homeless Dogs!

So, I am a bit late getting this up today - I actually had most of it ready to post, but then this morning we decided Kirzon needed to head to the vets because he is pulling out fur - not just scratching it out but literally pulling it with his teeth. It is most likely allergies so he got a shot and hopefully it will help him feel better. Anyway, here is our post to help out doggies!

So a bunch of our blog friends have been posting about this cool thing that Pedigree is doing to help out homeless dogs, so we decided to join in too! All you have to do is post on your blog about the campaign, and they will donate dog food to a shelter - how easy is that! Even a tiny kitten like Stella could do that - and she doesn't even have to lift that 20 pound bag!

How can you help too? Write a post between September 16th and September 19th and Pedigree will donate a 20-pound bag of food to an animal shelter. Just include the bullets listed here, and add the direct link to your blog post to the Blog Hop below.
Each year, more than 4 million dogs end up in shelters and breed rescue organizations. Pedigree created The PEDIGREE Adoption Drive to help shine a spotlight on the plight of these homeless dogs.

This year the PEDIGREE Adoption Drive is raising awareness for homeless dogs by donating a bowl of food to shelter dogs for everyone who becomes a "Fan" or "Likes" the PEDIGREE Adoption Drive on Facebook. So far more than 1 million bowls have been donated.

Special for BlogPaws West: For each blog that posts about the PEDIGREE Adoption Drive through September 19, PEDIGREE will donate a bag of its new Healthy Longevity Food for Dogs to shelters nationwide. It's simple: Write a post, help a dog.

When you are finished head over to Life with Dogs and join the special PEDIGREE Blog Hop(or you can just add your link to the list below - I decided to put the code on here so we could easily watch the list get bigger - it is below the pictures!)

We know a lot of our doggie friends have already joined in, but we think it would be great if some of you kitties out there would join in too - so we can help support our canine friends (and who knows one day they might have a chance to return the favor!)

Anyway, don't forget that tomorrow is Meow Like a Pirate Day!

And, just so you don't feel like this is an overly-doggie related post, here are some cute pics of us!

Join the bloghop!

Yay! Thank you, thank you for joining in! Even though we're different, doggies and kittehs should stick together and help each other out. And this is a super easy way to do it, for sure. (I put mine up today, too! If you gets a chance you should come watch the video I put up. I think you'll think it's funny!)

Oh, and I hope Kirzon feels better!

Wiggles & Wags,

Au and Target said...

We're too late for this AND we missed Pirate Kitties. Is there some sort of special list we've missed out on?

Milo and Alfie Marshall said...

Hi Amy, we just added our link (number 319) ~ it was all a bit last minute 'cos we didn't know about it, so we've added a bit to the end of our "Meow like a Pirate Day" post. We hope that's OK!

Sagira said...

Aww...you guys sure are cute and that sure is nice of Pedigree to do that. :)

Thanks so much for helping doggies by being part of this worthy cuase. I would be dead now if it hadn't been for all DROH who rescued me from the streets of Houstom when I was a wee pup and where would Shelby be if she hadn't been taken in by Sandra.

Love your kitty pictures on this post too.

Thank you so much for taking the time to post about this event! With the help of everyone we were able to raise about 8,000lbs of food!
