First off, hello to my new friends! It's really cool to get to know other dogs from all over the world. I'm looking forward to reading your blogs and getting to know you better.
I never finished telling about my big night at the Hamilton County Humane Society Fundraiser. (It's so hard to get the computer away from my people....)The evening was so great. I wish I could have a copy of the presentation to put on here. My girl and I were in another room waiting for the time to make our entrance so we didn't get to see all of it but my boy said there wasn't a dry eye in the place. And in that place, there were lots and lots of people. It was packed!!! The presentation focused on what the HS does here and why they rely so much on support from the community. They are so awesome because euthanasia is a very, very last resort for them. There were 7 of us dogs there and a bunch of cats with our owners representing the successful adoptions the shelter has had. Some of the dogs and cats had started out with very sad lives. One dog had scars down her back from where her previous owner had poured hot motor oil on her. Another one had been thrown from the 4th floor of a construction site. He had a broken pelvis and broken legs. Sparky had an abscessed eye caused by a skull fracture. Angel was a pit bull who was abandoned by her owner because she wouldn't listen to him. Too bad he didn't realize that she is completely deaf. As I've said on here before, I was left at the shelter when I was 10 years old....I wish I knew why. But the presentation ended on a happy note. All of us have been adopted by wonderful owners thanks to a shelter that fixed our hurts inside and out and didn't put us on a time limit to find our right family. After all us had come out on the stage, the audience all stood and up and gave us a huge ovation. What a happy night. I hope the shelter made lots of money so that they can continue helping all the the poor, broken, unloved puppies and kitties out there find happy homes like we have.
I hope everyone had a happy Thanksgiving yesterday. Stella and I celebrated ours today with yummy leftovers. I can't wait to see what we will have for our xmas meal.
Oh, and just in case you were wondering why I haven't put any pictures of the fundraiser....you'll have to ask my boy why he didn't take any.
