This 'n' That Thursday :)

Hello to all my Fav dogs and cats!
(and their humans of course)

It's This 'n' that Thursday Blog Hop time!
Hosted by:         **drum roll please**
2 Brown Dawgs and Ruckus the Eskie





































Hello everyone, and a big welcome to this weeks blog hop!
Where we like to specialize in a little of this.....and a little
of that! So my "little of this" is going to be to let people know, 
Clowie the dog has been so kind that she nominated us for an award! It is called the Liebster
award. For new up and coming bloggers like myself!
So because I am nominated, I am to tell you 5 things about myself 
that you probably don't know. Here goes...

#1 One of the things I dream of doing is starting my own rescue organization. I feel a strong need to do my part and be the voice that our beloved animals don't have! I am doing what I can for my local shelter, but I feel it's not enough.

#2 Another dream of mine is to become a sled dog racer! I think it would be amazing to be out there with my dogs in a beautiful winter wonderland! 

#3 I am a huge Toronto Maple Leafs fan! Go Leafs Go!

#4 I hate all other sports....lol

#5 I would absolutely LOVE to have a Husky farm! LOL! ;)







So now you know some more about me! ...moving on...

A little of that...

I have posted this in my last few blogs, and I do apologize to my every day readers for having to read it again but I need to get this out there. Aviva is doing a community funding challenge. And my local shelter, Lanark animal welfare society (LAWS) are one of the semi finalists. 

Laws is an independent no kill shelter, who have been here for over 30 years in the Lanark county. They run programs in schools to better educate kids on animals and different thing like that. They also have a "trouble fund" meaning they help the community with very low cost spay and neutering programs. Many families over the last 30 years have adopted a LAWS dog. And, like a lot of other shelters these days, they are way over-populated and way under-paid. They need our help now more then ever! 

This is a place that truly cares about the animals in the community. I have witnessed that first hand.  So Please, let's not let them fall through the cracks, help us by voting.

No donations, just a simple click a day for the next 7 days, thats all it takes. LAWS is starting to fall behind, so get your clickin hand ready, and click away!

(you do have to register, but I promise, it only takes a second, and you dont receive any annoying e-mails!) 

To learn more about LAWS and this fund click here, and dont forget to go back daily for your vote. I thank you kindly for caring. 

Also to go to their site to learn a little more about what LAWS does click here.
