Catching up and a big Thank You!

Phew! It's been busy here lately, what with the holiday weekend and Granny here for 10 days! Anyhow, I wanted to make sure you all knew that Sunday was not only Easter but my way-cool new friend Clive's birthday! I know alot of you have already wished Clive a happy birthday, but if not, pop over send him your belated wishes! (Do you like my moves as a wing walker?)

Now, this next photo may look like something you'd expect to see around Hugh Hefner's mansion but NO! It's my dearest Rosie-Posie, sending me an adorable Easter card.  She is my sweetest honey-bunny!!! You can't see her fluffy tail here, after all, this is a PGB-rated site ("Petey Good Boy!")

Now, here's some REALLY EXCITING news! Some packages from me and my fellow DWBers have arrived at 4 Paws for Ability.  Today I got an email from Piper at 4 Paws with these photos of the dogs enjoying some of their new toys and this fantastic paw-printed blanket.
That's Piper with the wide white blaze on her pretty forehead. 

Are you surprised to see such cute little Papillions as service dogs? Well, sometimes kids are overwhelmed by big dogs and find these little gals to be less intimidating. 

I was very impressed with the story of Gracie, Piper's sister who was born with just three legs. When Gracie went to visit school kids, the kids all thought it was pretty cool that Gracie could get around so well with just three legs.  Yet many times their peers, kids with disabilities, were ignored. She teaches the kids to accept differences and find the person beyond the disability. 

Isn't that cool? This little puppy that may have been tossed aside or even destroyed because she only has 3 legs now has a HUGE life teaching life lessons to hundreds of kids. Be sure to pop over and visit Gracie and Piper's blog and meet some of the other dogs at 4 Paws for Ability.

Look at this happy puppy with a brand new yellow and orange ball. That's thanks to YOU! You've demonstrated your kindness to give these hard-working pups and dogs a bit of fun. And who knows what all they will be able to accomplish!

My heart is smiling today.

The little Papillons are very adorable! I'll bet they are very proud to be service dogs, too.

My friend Chase the cat has only 3 legs and has some scars from an accident but she's a service cat! She's my hero.

Clive said...

Hi Petey

We are just back and catching up on all the news! It's really wonderful to read that those dogs in 4 Paws are benefitting from the generosity of other dogs and we were really touched reading about the papillions! What a brillant idea to help children understand and empathise about disabilities.

lots of woofs
