Catch Up Day

 I keep notes stuck here and there of things I mean to post about and every now and then I need a catch up day to let you all know about them. This is one of those posts full of things that don't go together, but are interesting.

First on the list is a new blog called Our Rainbow Friends. This, as you may have guessed, is a place to honor our bloggy friends who cross the bridge each month. It'll be a permanent archive where you can read about them. Be sure to tell your friends and they also have a pretty badge that you can download to your sidebar to remind you. Our friends Jed and Abby are in charge of the site and we think they'll do a great job.

Next up is a giveaway. Who doesn't like a giveaway? This is for a sweet little plush donkey.
 Our little friend Freya is learning all about donkeys, so to celebrate she's giving this fellow away. Hurry over to her Mom's site here and leave a comment. The last day to comment is February 14, so hurry.

Mango Minster starts on Sunday.
We have contestants in two categories. Noah is in the Cutest category and voting starts on Sunday afternoon. Noah would appreciate your vote.
Bailey is in the Adventure Dog category and voting for that starts on Monday afternoon. She would also be most pleased if your would support her with a vote.

Finally, on a very sad note, we just received an email from our dog training club that a lovely woman has died. She was our first instructor when Samba and Tsar took classes and she was so supportive that they both did well. Over the years she has remained a dear friend and always encouraged us with each of our students. We will miss her a lot. Here she is with her two dogs Milo and Mona.
I'm sure I've forgotten something, but it'll have to wait for next catch up day.

So sorry to hear a great dog trainer has moved on. Maybe she's at the Bridge and can FINALLY teach Fred to "come" without fail?

Go Noah & Bailey!

We're so sorry about the loss of your friend. She sounds like a good and valuable woman.

Thank you so much for mentioning Our Rainbow Friends. But it wouldn't have happened without Ann of Zoolatry, who set up the blog, and Linda [Amber da Weenies mom] who does the actual blog work. We just do the clerical stuff. We do hope people will see it was started with love and great respect, and that they will support it.

We're off to win a donkey stuffie.

Have a good weekend! Sleep late. Maybe Rob can get up with your nightwalker once in a while :)

Jed & Abby

I should start keeping notes - I think of something to blog and them promptly forget it and the blog gets neglected.

Sorry for the loss of your friend. g
