Okay everyfur.... the time has come!!! But first, we want to wish you all a HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!! We pray that you all have a thousand blessings to be thankful for today!!! **sniffs n' snuggles**
**Please read this post carefully as there is a TON of information here!!**
Unfortunately, we did have to dismiss four of our nominees since they could not be contacted.
I am aware that Short Stack's Mama was very close to having a new baby when we pawmail'd last and I'm certain that Shorty will be back with Dogster once things settle down at his house. So we will be holding back his gifts and sending them out as soon as we hear from the family!
It's obvious by now... that we simply could not limit ourselves to just three gift baskets. (actually, we decided that we could get in lots more stuff if we used gift bags rather than baskets!! haha... hope no one minds the lil' change!!)
So....... we have decided to provide FIVE - - - - yep FIVE large gift "baskets" to the extraordinary pups listed below.... and even a lil' bit of Christmas for the devoted families who care for them!!!
(Our lists are in alphabetical order)
Miss Dixie Monroe
Short Stack - COULD NOT BE CONTACTED: We're holding his gifts until we hear from him!
Wheelie Boy Babybear
We have put together a special little slideshow / video in Emma's video album - with lots of images of "The Five Faces".

(please make note, that some furs had lots more videos and photos available than others - - we didn't limit anyone intentionally... this was all we could get our paws on to compile our video.... WE LOVE YOU ALL!!!) *muah*
After reading all the stories of inspiration... and getting to know everyfur a little better..... there just was no way that we could let ANY of these precious lovies spend Christmas without a lil' "Emma love".... so keep reading!!!
The five paw'd ones listed below... will receive 20 ZEALIES!! Compliments of our dear friend Shandi!!! (these will be transferred to you today)
Emma is quite a girl you know.... she has worked and worked till her tiny paws could barely hold her up!!! But, together with some of our FABULOUS friends and "Emma sponsors".... we have been able to put together some wonderful surprises!!!
Each and EVERY nominee..... YES........... EVERY SINGLE FUR.... the "basket recipients ... the Zealie recipients.... and EVERY OTHER NOMINEE.... will receive a Christmas stocking with their name on it.... stuffed full with some WONDERFUL goodies from Emma and our participating donors!!!
Jackson - COULD NOT BE CONTACTED - REMOVED FROM NOMINATIONS
Joy - COULD NOT BE CONTACTED - REMOVED FROM NOMINATIONS
Mr. Fabulous - COULD NOT BE CONTACTED - REMOVED FROM NOMINATIONS
Sylvester - COULD NOT BE CONTACTED - REMOVED FROM NOMINATIONS
**SPECIAL REQUEST GIFT BOX**
We've been asked, as a special request, to provide a gift box for Yoda.... of course, we are happy to oblige.
We have just a couple of special notes that we need to make mention of....
Wheelie Boy Baby Bear................ the sling for your water therapy is ordered and on the way!! I wanted to make note of it just in case it doesn't arrive in time to send out with your big package!!
Sheba....... we wanted you to know, that as part of our gift to you.... we are mailing off a donation - on behalf of you and your family - to Mica's IMHA Research Fund.
To EVERYFUR and family..... inside each of your packages.... you will find business cards, Christmas cards or some type of note from every one of our sponsors who helped to make this project possible!! It would be especially kind, if you would take the time to send each of them a little thank you note once your gifts arrive.
I will pack things so that you know what items came from whom .... anything unmarked, comes from us... and no thanks is necessary!! *kissies*
Below is a list of our friends who are graciously participating as donors in Emma's Christmas Paws Baskets Project!! If you are still doing some Christmas shopping - please visit our business sponsors and find out what great gifts they have available!!
THANK YOU ALL for your support in helping us give a lil' extra Christmas to some of our extraordinary furfriends this year!!!!

(we are still accepting shipping assistance... so if you would like to "adopt a package" please get in touch with me via PM or by emailing to firstname.lastname@example.org.
With all that is going on, it is quite possible that I may have left someone out in listing our project donors.... if so, please forgive... and feel free to post an update here!!
We are going to give it every effort to start getting packages shipped out beginning the week of December 8th.... we have a ton going on, so please be patient.... and do let us know when you receive your gifts!!
I do have one special request of my own....... it would make my heart happy (and those of our sponsors as well, I'm sure) to be able to receive photos... even video.... of the furs receiving their gifts. If this is possible for you to participate in.... please do....
Please take the time to visit our nominee's pages... leave some love... a bone... or a saucer of warm milk!! They all have a very special story to share and through their eyes, we are able to witness great will, determination, spirit and LOVE!!!
We love you ALL!!! I'm so happy that we have been able to help make this happen!!
Thanks to all who have nominated friends... donated gift items.... sent paw mails... answered our call for shipping assistance.................. our Dogster and MySpace circle of friends is the most wonderful group of fur and skin we've ever known!!
Enjoy the video.................... and HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!!!!!!!
