When J. Money sent out a note to the Rockstar Finance Community asking for 20 bloggers who would be willing to take $100 (from him) and do some good with it, then blog about it, I didn’t hesitate to say ME PLEASE!!!! He wanted to know in advance exactly what each person would do with the funds and of course, my first thought was to send it to my favorite charity here in SF that rescues senior dogs.
Older dogs are often surrendered for a number of reasons and they are generally the last to be adopted, if ever. Muttville pulls old dogs from shelters (who often get euthanized almost immediately), gets them any medical attention they need, then puts them up for adoption so they can live out their remaining years with a loving family.
Older dogs are the bomb. They’re more relaxed and chill than younger pups, rarely eat shoes or chew your furniture and generally know how the whole potty thing works. I have two of them myself, and if I play my cards right, I’ll get a chance to foster one of these pooches-of-a-certain-age next year!!
So, unfortunately, I wasn’t one of the first 20 bloggers to respond to the invitation and I didn’t get the $100 do-good donation money. That’s the crappy part of living on the west coast. All the cool stuff is taken before I even roll out of bed in the morning. Damn east coasters!
But, giving is always part of my year-end tradition anyway, so I happily made my donation out of pocket.
I so love a good deal ?
Anyway, I want to wish you all a wonderful holiday season and whatever you celebrate, I hope you have the company of people you love and a few furry critters to enjoy the time with. Oh, and if you’re lonely and looking for love in all the wrong places, check out Muttville. You can’t ask for a better love than that of a sweet little rescue dog. They warm my heart every single day.
From our family to yours,
