(KandyKahne9) Diana’s kitten, Fred is still struggling with his health. If you have not already done so, please read his story and wish the family well. They need our prayers. Fred the kitten (and his newfound sister Bella) came to Diana’s family after they lost their beloved senior cat Trixy. He has helped them smile again and they are not ready to go through this kind of loss again—is anyone ever “ready“?
Please let her know you are thinking of her and Fred.

Our very own Ms. Diana, a.k.a. KandyKahne9, could use some hugs and prayers, ladies. I know you are all good at that stuff, but can you be mad for a little while too? Her older cat has not been well and now her little kitten is seriously ill, and well it just isn’t fair. Please read the update on her cats Harry and Fred and lend her some support. As always, Shady tells it better than I ever could, in her NO FAIR-Y TALE. Use the link to read the post.
Thanks to all who placed a guess about ““Mayzie’s Doggie Dee-En-Ay““:http://fabulously40.com/blog/id/meet-mayzie-16136/. They raised a lot of “green papers” in just a few days to battle BSL and for other rescues. The results are in, and you can find them here: http://mayziegal.wordpress.com/2010/06/03/todays-the-day-for-my-dee-en-ay/
Another one from my dog Shady's "Dog Eared Tales Blog:
Well, our writing contest is over and the winners have received their prizes. The most sought after prize was delivered weeks ago; a donation to the first place winner's charity of choice, Southern California Golden Retriever Rescue. This group rescued winner Nicole's golden retriever Chaucer from the kill list at the shelter just in time. As Nicole put it, “...with cross eyes, half a tail and kennel cough the shelter had him slated to be put down". With this list of unique characteristics followed by a diagnosis of possible hip and elbow dysplasia soon after his adoption, Chaucer might not have looked the part of an adoptable dog to those who have to make impossible choices like that every day. Thankfully, rescue stepped in and did what they do—look past the numbers and the odds and the appearances and be the first to see that Chaucer was in fact "the smartest, most loveable pooch" Nicole ever could have hoped to meet.
When Mom (you know her as MelissaBelle) read Nicole's email about Chaucer, she read that line over and over again to make sure she had it right—"cross eyes, half a tail and kennel cough". Half a tail? She remembers our LoJack's long, thick golden tail and of course she sees my long Labrador tail every day, as it wreaks havoc with low-lying knick knacks and announcing my mood better than words could ever do. Our tails are indeed part of our dog charm and in my case it was also the inspiration for my blog title (Dog Eared Tales, like dogs have tails, get it?). That is not to say that one needs ALL of their tail to be charming. Or any tail at all. Half a tail might look or sound like a disability at first, but I bet any dog that meets Chaucer does not think twice about it like a person might. No matter where his eyes focus or how his tail wags, another dog would know right away that his heart is pure; he has a lot of love to give.
