A little fundraiser for dogs in need....

(human dog blog hijack alert!)

I (AlphaB, "mum" to the skinny ugly mutant dogs, Boots, Cleo, Tealeaf, Megan & KuBrin) am about to go away to the Falkland Islands to visit General Jackson the Basset Hound.

Anyway... I had a little thought. If any of you dog bloggers out there in dog blogger land fancy receiving a post card from the southernmost capital in the world (Stanley), I will send you one if you make a donation to my favourite dog rescue.

I don't mind how much, just whatever you can spare to help them in their tireless work for dogs less fortunate.

If you are interested, email me your postal address and tell me
a) who you'd like the card addressed to (you, the dog, the kitchen sink, the wolfie-wrecked oven)
b) If you'd prefer a wildlife, Stanley or scenery shot (obviously depending on what I can get).

My chosen rescue IS: Evesham Greyhound and Lurcher Rescue.
EGLR is where Cleo, Tealeaf and Megan all came from, plus our bridge-dogs Myrtle & Hobo.

They are short of funds this year because they had to cancel their main summer show on account of our lovely English floods.

Anything you can spare will be gratefully received.

To make a donation click on the DONATE button on the bottom of the left hand menu, you can choose your amount on the form. The currency is set to British Pounds, Paypal will work out the conversion for you. Any problems let me know :-)

To email me.. use "crowsplitter -at- gmail . com" without the spaces, and put @ instead of -at-.

WOW, I didn't know you were from Evesham Greyhound and Lurcher Rescue, that is where my girlfriends Holly and Abby are both from, what a small world!

Beautiful pictures. That's such a great idea to send a postcard to someone who will make a donation. =)

I think we've missed the boat.... :(



(hope you don't miss the plane and that it goes well - hey who is looking after the beasties?)

Dear Bloglanders,

There is NO missing the boat on this one. Kerri is away for almost 3 weeks, so joint in whenever you feel like.

Now, form an orderly queue - we have one taker so far. ;-)
