"My dog is worried about the economy because ALPO is up to 99 cents a can. That's almost $7 in dog money."
-- Joe Weinstein

Hi friends,

We are all aware of the devastation in Haiti and have seen the terrible pictures and heard the stories of the remarkable rescues that have taken place but it's not just the people that are hurt and suffering but the animals too. The hospital Mommy works at had a fund raiser and they matched every dime that was collected and sent it to the Clinton/Bush Haiti fund. Mommy donated but wants to do something for the animals now.

Mommy got an e-mail from the Humane Society of America, saying that they are trying to raise money to rescue the many animals, like this poor injured pup, from dying of starvation and from the injuries they have suffered. The Humane Society and other Animal Rescue organizations, from around the world, are in Haiti now but they are desperate for funds. So please consider logging on to their websites to make a donation. Remember what happened to the animals in New Orleans during and after Hurricane Katrina? Well this tragedy is so much worse. Mommy has made her donation already but I want to do something too.

So I had an idea. I will send a Valentine kiss and card to each doggie, kitty or hammie who makes a donation to the Humane Society of America and Mommy will donate a $1.00 for my kiss that I send you to them as well . If you would like to donate and earn a kiss from me just send your name and address to Mommy so we can get your kiss and card to you before Valentines day. My e-mail address is redicca@sbcglobal.net. You can donate as little as a dollar, any amount will help and think of how you will be helping to save one of us.

I am a very good kisser, if I say so myself, and I need the practice
so I'll be ready for Camp Bow Wow on February 13 th. I hope I can raise at least 50.00 with my kisses for the animals of Haiti. What do you think? Would you like to help me raise some money?

The deadline for reserving one of my kisses will be Jan 31, so I can get your cards and kisses mailed in time to reach you by Valentine's Day.

BTW, work continues on the DROH Kissing Booth. These 2 kissing dachshunds are mounted on the top but still need to be painted. Aunt Judy says we can't show anymore pictures until it is totally decorated and finished.

Love, kisses and {{{Huggies}}} to all....Mona

Thanks for telling us about this situation. I'll see about getting some green paper sent in that direction.
Hey, I just read that your mom plays with your paw furs too. Strange isn't it???

You and your Mom are so sweet and kind, Mona. We have already pawed a small amount to a fund here in our area. We hope you can raise lots and lots more money - happy kissing.

Woos, Phantom and Thunder

Hi, Mona & Mommy!

What a great idea. We are going to the humane society web site. I don't like that picture of that poor doggie. I just cannot bear to imagine the suffering and the fear. Poor little things.

Thanks for info. And give your mommy a hug from us. We're praying for her. :)

That is such a great thing to do and people don't even think of all the pets that need help as well. Keep up the great work.

The photo booth looks better and betterer. Once again, can't wait for the final photo. As for your post on Haiti, thank you. This is a great place for posts like yours. I'm guessing that most of us are always donating to our favorite charities, shelters... you name it.
