WoooooHoooooo!!! I was chosen again for one of the Dogster Daily Diary Picks!! I think that is just so neat!! THANKS DOGSTERS!!
Things are going pretty well for me.... I'm still healing from my last set of surgeries.... the first was three weeks ago yesterday... and the last was two weeks ago yesterday, so I've still got a little healing to go.
Some of my strings are still in, so I still don't have my stuffies or fuzzies - - - which leaves me pretty bored.... but Mommy's been keeping me busy with lotsa' snuggle time and trips!!
Yesterday I got to sneak into all the errands places Mommy hadta' go to.... and lemme' tell ya'.... there's a REASON they don't let pups go to those places!!! In this one errand place.... there's this area..... OMD it has the BEST smells!! It's called a DELI and I could have just stayed there and sniffed allllllllllllllll day longgggggggggg!!!
We hada' fun time yesterday.... n' I got to wear my new Valentine's Day dress made by my Auntie Linda!! (this dress is for sale in custom sizes for YOU for just 50.00!! 1/2 of the proceeds go towards my foundation!! Contact my Mommy!)
Auntie Linda is creating a whole line of dresses!! It's called The Emma Collection!! WOWZA!! I feel soooooo special!! :) 30% of collection sales benefit my foundation, Cleft Companions - The Emma Foundation!! YAY!! The Emma Collection will be formally released on Valentine's Day!!
Well, I went back to the dogtors yesterday for 'nother check in... and the surgeon says I'm doing really well! I'm getting soooooo big!! Soon I'll be two pounds.... but Mama says you'd never know it because I'm still sooooo tiny..... small but solid!! :)
They say I gotta' still have 'nother surgery..... prolly in a few weeks..... that dogtor is tellin' Mama all kinda' secret stuffs 'bout me "enterin' puberty" (whatever that means) and she says that they're gonna' do two surgeries in one! While they modify my nasal passageway and work on my lip - - they're gonna' maybe fix up my guts too - - - - - somethin' 'bout 'cause Mama doesn't want me ta' make babies or somethin'.... (yeah, right, like I want one'a THOSE THINGS!!! blah) *wrinklin' nose*
We're still workin' on tryin' ta' get my fund raiser moving..... it ends in just a few days and we're nowhere close to our goal... which is REALLY HUGE this time!!
Pledges on this fund raiser are 100.00 each to enter our raffle... and money is so tight for everyone these days. Mommy had hoped that offering up our family vehicle, a 2007 Suzuki XL7 AWD Luxury SUV would be a great incentive - but we know it's just real tough for folks to part with a whole 100.00 at once. (I know we couldn't do it!)
The numbers don't really SOUND too bad if ya' say it out loud..... we just need 180 pledges of $100.00 OR 90 pledges of $200.00 OR 60 pledges of $300.00 OR 45 pledges of $400.00!! haha!! So when ya' say it like that, it sounds almost DOABLE!!!
But.... we gotta' have help FINDING those 180 furs to get their people to pledge 100.00 each.... that's the trouble!
On a good note, I'm still recovering really well from my two most recent surgeries.... n' even though I gotta' still go in for two more (which we didn't plan on) - Mommy says it will all be worth it in the end!!
I can already eat all by myself now!! WooooHooo!!! I can't tell ya' what it feels like to be alive for SIX MONTHS and NEVER have tasted CHICKEN!!!! OMD!!! Talk about HAPPINESS the day I had my first bite!!!! *wigglin'*
So things are good!!
If this fund raiser IS successful ... well then, it will help in lotsa' ways!!
First and foremost, now that I know I gotta' have two more surgeries, a successful fund raiser will give the dogtors the money they need to get me all fixed up!!
But we know that once my foundation: Cleft Companions - The EMMA Foundation - - is up and running.... we are going to be able to do SO MUCH GOOD for other pupfaces like me and for skin kids who have what I got too!! The whole thing is just gonna' be PAWSOME!!!
So please..... to all my furfriends and their families.......... as PIF Mascot ..... I ask you.... to stop by my fund raiser page and maybe nibble a lil' harder on your skin people's ankles to get them to help!! (and maybe even with YOU some great prizes!!) :)
Click HERE For Emma's Pledge Drive & Raffle: WIN A SUZUKI XL7 AWD LUXURY SUV!!!
If you want to help, but there's just no way you can persuade your pawrents to participate in the raffle - - you can still put on your saddest puppy dog face and convince them to send smaller donations through paypal to firstname.lastname@example.org .... so there's more than one way to PAW IT FORWARD...
We love you all!!! It's YOUR paws and prayers that give us the power to not only heal ME... but to reach the thousands of cleft survivors like me!!
Speaking of PAWING IT FORWARD - please take a moment and come on over to the PIF Dogster Group where I am the female mascot!!
Join in and help with our contribution to RACHAEL RAY'S NUTRISH "FOOD RAISER" CAMPAIGN!!!
Paw It Forward
Rachael Ray's Nutrish has pledged 1 pound of dog food for each card received on Dogfessions, Dogvice, Pugfessions/Pugvice, and Bullyvice/Bullyfessions! The goal is to give 3 TONS of food to both Best Friends Animal Sanctuary and Sabbath Memorial Dog Rescue -- we need 6,000 cards!
The Dogvice cards themselves are decorated 4x6 postcards (or anything that’s about the size of a postcard, such as a photo or paper that you trim to size) that includes advice from a dog, and then snail-mailed to the Dogvice mailbox.
There’s a monthly contest where your dog can win stuff just for giving good (or bad or funny or strange) advice! Finally, every participating Dogvice card received goes to helping shelter dogs.
The "Dogvice Spokesdog" for this campaign isn't a celebrity dog, it's over 6,000 celebrity dogs! The PIF (Paw it Forward) group on Dogster.com is spearheading the campaign to raise 6,000 cards so that we can get 3 TONS of Nutrish food to homeless dogs. Each week, a different individual dog from the group is going to be a celebrity Spokesdog on all of the 4 sites collecting cards (Dogfessions, Dogvice, Pugfessions/Pugvice, and Bullyvice/Bullyfessions)
Each week of the food raiser a dog from the P*I*F Dogster group will represent the campaign! This week's dog is: Rickie Roo!
I will be the PIF spokesdog for the first week of March!!!
Kiss all your people and sniff all your friends... I LOVE YOU!!!
**kisses n' wiggles**
