"The most beautiful thing is to see a person smiling...And even more beautiful, knowing that you are the reason behind it."

Dearest friends,

Mommy has been crying a lot lately, ever since Shelby came into our lives. At first because it looked hopeless and that Shelby would have to be put down but now  she's crying because of all of the kindness, thoughts, prayers and donations that have been received from so many of you for our lovely Shelby.

We want to thank every dog, kitty and human who has spread the word about this very special girl on their blogs. The Booker Man and his sister Asa created this badge for Shelby. From what I have seen on lots of blogs her team is building by the minute. 

I am on Team Shelby

Over at Mack's Mess, he pledged a dollar for every comment made & had a contest too, just for Shelby's Vet care.
 Way to go Mackie!!

Please feel free to add Shelby's Pay Pal button on your blogs if you wish. Mommy has gotten several comments from folks who would rather not use Pay Pal, so if someone wants to send a check, please send an e-mail to Mommy (the e-mail address is on my bio), and she will send you our address and we will make sure it gets to Shelby's Vet Care Fund. Any funds raised over the amount of Shelby's Vet care will be donated to Pit Bull Rescue.

Almost 3 weeks ago, Shelby could barely move and now look at her.
Somebody once said that dogs don't smile. Sure looks like a smile to us.

God bless all of my new friends and I wouldn't be smiling now if it weren't for all of you---Shelby

This thingy with Shelby has sort of united us all. We know that we can't save them all, butt I think we feel so close to Shelby that it gives us all some hope.

Lola and also Franklin, too said...

I think that if we all together can help you help Shelby, it's the coolest thing ever. It gives all this blogging and fun more meaning. Plus we really want Shelby to be OK. I just hope there's been enough to help.

We weren't online much tonight. The badge is up. We still have to work on the paypal button.

lotsa licks, Lola

Sandra said...

I'm so glad that everyone is coming together to help Shelby. She looks like a wonderful soul and even though we only know her through pictures she has become a part of our lives. We look forward to hearing more news of progress in the days to come. Go Shelby!

She is in good hands. And that is definitely a smile. God Bless your good souls.

Anonymous said...

Oh, yes! She is Most Definitely smiling! I thinks furry bloggers are the best bloggers in the whole wide world cuz they wanna step up and help when somebuddy is hurting.

Blessings to you and Miss Sandra for stepping up to helps sweet Miss Shelby. I hates to think what woulda happened if Miss Sandra hadn't come across her in that parking lot and wanted to help. Shelby is a very very lucky girl indeed! and you boths are very special peoples.

Unfortunately, I'm not able to donate anything financially at this time but I came back to check on Shelby. Her story is just so heartbreaking. I'm going to feature a little bit of her story on my blog on Friday just to help get the word out.

Hi! I just came across your blog and saw this post about Shelby. What happened to Shelby and how did you all find her? That's wonderful you rescued her. How much money do you still need for her vet bills? I was going to place her picture and link to her story on my blog if that was okay with you.

We rescued a pit about 7 months ago from a horrible neglect situation and she is doing great now but we are in the proces of treating heartworms. They are such great dogs.
