I wanted to let you all know that I will again be walking in the annual "Barks on the Boards" dog walking event to benefit the Humane Society of Ocean City, NJ (HSOC). The HSOC is a ‘wuffderful’ no-kill shelter that continues to function and grow with the help of public support and a full staff of volunteers.
“Barks on the Boards 2010” will take place on Sunday, May 30th, and is the ONLY day that us furry 4-leggers are allowed to strut our stuff on the boardwalk! This will be my 6th year participating in this pawsome event - it is loads of fun! Last year I had a whole crew of fellow Dogsters at the event, even a pack of weiner dogs all the way from Florida, and we all had a wonderful time. I would love it if we could do that again this year!
Last year, I raised over $3,000 for the shelter & was named highest individual donor for the 4th year in a row. I was in the local paper and even got a little shiny bone shaped plaque wif my name on it! And it was all thanks to the generosity of my family, friends and most importantly my Dogster pals! This year I hope to meet and exceed last year’s amount, and with your help maybe I can! That is a lot of bones that will go a loooong way for the puppers and kitties at the HSOC!
So…if anywoof wants to send a few (or a lot…bol!) of bones in my name you can send it directly to the shelter in my name: Jay-Jay, Yorkshire Terrier, Phila. PA, and make sure you also mention that it is for the “Barks on the Boards 2010” event. Or even better…you can now donate online at the HSOC’s website! And hey, if ya can't send any bones don't worry about it, just bark me some woofs of support to inspire my little legs to keep on walkin' (even though I sit in my stroller most of the day…BOL!) Any sort of support is encouraged, welcomed and appreciated!
A few years ago I started a Dogster group called “JJ’s Faithful Funders”
(http://www.dogster.com/group/Jjs_faithful_funders-8001) so if you are not already a member come on and join! There I will keep you all updated on my fundraising goals, will provide PayPal info, and we might even have some contests and giveaways there too!
Thanks so much for taking the time to read!
Wuv & Licks,

This is a snip-it from the HSOC website:
The mission of the Humane Society of Ocean City, New Jersey (HSOC) is to provide a compassionate and healthy environment for the homeless animals in our care until they can be placed into permanent homes or become permanent residents of the shelter.
The HSOC strives to promote responsible pet ownership and reduce the suffering caused by pet overpopulation and animal cruelty by offering low cost spay/neuter solutions, wellness and humane education programs to the community.
The Humane Society of Ocean City is a private, non-profit (501)(c)(3) organization located in Ocean City, New Jersey. HSOC operates a "No-Kill" Animal Shelter; a low-cost spay/neuter clinic and a humane educational center.
Since 1964, HSOC has proudly served Ocean City and surrounding communities in Atlantic and Cape May counties. Our Shelter has rescued and cared for many stray and abandoned pets. HSOC strives to place its homeless residents into good, loving homes. For unwanted pets, HSOC provides them a safe, clean, and happy home in the Shelter for the rest of their precious lives.
In September 2002, HSOC opened a new building for spay/neuter and humane educational services. The local public is welcome to bring their pets and apply for spay or neuter appointments for affordable fees. The clinic has state-of-the-art medical equipment and is staffed by a licensed veterinarian and professional assistants. The educational center holds classes and shelter tours for children and young adults on the proper treatment and care of companion animals. The HSOC also teaches respect for all animals. The center is staffed by dedicated volunteer teachers who effectively convey to young minds an understanding and appreciation of pet guardianship.
There are other ways we help pets, as you will learn by reviewing the many areas of our website. With your financial support and volunteer efforts, we can transform our hopes into realities.
We stand by our motto: "Providing the highest level of compassion and service to our animal friends."

Hmmmm some highlights…4th year in a row top funder for Barks on da Boards and meeting lots of my goof Dogster pals there like the Wiener Gang, Romeo & Juilett, Sadie & Murphy. I got to meet Murphers twice dis summer, da second time we got chased of dog beach in OC, NJ by millions of gnats. I hope we get a better gnat free day to play at da beach togever dis year. I hope I maybe get meet more Dogster furriends dis year
Dis summer be very good too, vacation at da sea shore is so nice. I wuvs our sea shore house b/c it one floor and I can keep a good eye on everyone inside and outside. I wuv to go on da warm porch early in da morning and lie on da table and sun myself. Den I wakes K up so we can go fur walk. I usually see my Tzu buddy Willie and I sits on his porch wif him for a while most days. He nice guy and let me lay in his special porch pillow. But bestest part of sea shore is when me & K get up reeeal early to sneak on da beach…hehe! I wuvs da beach sooo much! Da sand like snow, but not cold – BOL! I even get brave dis year and be runnin’ in da little tiny ocean waves. Walkin on beach and sniffin’ stinky seaweeds and stuffs is da best!
‘Nover highlight, so much snow! We getted 24 inches not to long ago and it be wooftastic b/c I wuvs da snow! K bundles me all up and I whine and bark at da door until she let me out and den I run in it, snoot around in it, and eats it! I ‘specially loved when K frows it at me and I can catches it. I stay out in snow allll day, but K make me come in and warm up b/c she say I freeze up like a pupcicle if I don’t. I sure hope we gets even more snow dis winter.
Hmmmm what else??? OHHHHH I be in Daily News b/c I greatest wittle hairy Phillies fan ever! The mans write about me watching da games in my Phillies jersey and being a good luck charm, I been gets my picture in a big paper too! I guess I not so good luck charm dis year b/c we have no Phillies parade, so I try to be better lucky charm in April…BOL! K be in da paper wif me too b/c she have big huge Phillies surprise pawty in special club at last Phillies game. I not allowed to go but I know she have best time ever so dat make me happies. She still talk about wearing some big special Phillies World Series ring. Whatever dat is…BOL!
We just have more Howl-O-Days too and as usual I get spoilt…hehe! At Fanksgiving Aunt Dotty always save me da raw turkey livers and stuff and they be yummies in my tummy. We just eats turkey and ham and stuffs and sit around and nap – lol.
Den come Woofmas. I send out da most coveted JJ woofmas card and I finks dis year be da bestest cards yet! Woofmas over, but we still got some decorations, woofever da big tree sittin’ outside on da sidewalk dis morning. Even though I can’t pee on it, it pretty tree, but it take up my window seat so I happies dat it gone b/c I can look out da front window again. We have usual big giant Italian Woofmas Eve dinner and everyone come over and give me presents – lol! I gets lots of da giant shrimps (raw of course) and chicken from the escarole soup, then I lay in my little bed in da middle of everyfing and watch everyone fussin’ wif gifts and stuffs. Da 2 little ones, Liz & Lila, likes to play wif me and I don’t mins dem so much anymores, ‘specially since dey give me treats…hehe! We have lots of fun Woofmas Ever, but Woofmas day is what I be wait fur. I get so excited b/c dat when Santa Paws come and bring me sooo many giftees! Dis year he bring me lots and lots and lots of bags of my most favorite Wellness treats, and buffalo bully sticks and even some elk jerky and cookies and stuff. I had lots of fun opening my pressies in da morning. I know exactly what be mine too. Santy bring me some wacky little hamster dis year too, but I no likes him. He make funny noises, he even bark at me! He run around in da kitchen and I attack him and throw him around, but he keep runnin’ around! I no likes him at all so K pack him up and ship him to one of my furriends who prolly likes him better.
It be da New Year not to long ago too, we go over little Liz house and count down and drink champagneee. Dey tells me I get champagneee in my little glass but I finks dey fooling me. Everyone kisses me at midnight too, but I more concerned w/ getting all those noisy horns and rippin em’ up. Da next day I stay home wif K’s mommy so she can go to da big Mummer’s parade. I not like when she leave me so I try see her on TV but it just lots of people wearing sparkly stuffs and big feathers.
So dat be my good year in review. It be wooftastic year, and I hope dies year be even better! So here too furtastic 2010 and to me getting more spoilt’ on my woofday dis week! BOL!!!
