Good Morning Good News !!!! August 11, 2010

Good Morning Good News !!!!

Oh I'm sorry, I'm late today!! I've been watching my milty blanket go
round and round!! Mary brought us a new washing machine this morning
and mommey said my bed HAD to get washed! Thank you Mary! I don't mind
the feet prints and fur but mommey does!

Thank you Cindy for taking all the laundry to the mat this weekend so
the hospital folks got clean hammocks and all the other doggies and
kitties got nice clean things!!

Candy came to play with me this morning!!! And brought a whole truck
full of donations from Maryland SPCA. They're friends of ours and we
help each other out. She also brought things for the yard sale. Did
you know they're having a big yard sale here on Sunday along with the
Open House.

UH OH did you vote yet? Rikkis Refuge, Orange, VA, USA
Quick like a bunny - let me go vote!!!
I'm a bear and I'm going on a pick a nick! Wow I am hungry! It is way
past lunch time isn't it? MOM?? MOM?? Where's my LUNCH?

Mommey and Mary have been going over all the things that happened while
mommey was gone! Mommey says Mary did a really god job taking care of
the office. She says Lena did a really good job taking care of us.
Mommey says nobody needs her anymore! But I need Mommey, so she's gonna
have to stay!

I'll get a picture tomorrow of the wonderful mural Rene painted on the
new quarantine building - it's really cool and mommey really likes it!
Rene's paintings makes it look so nice and happy and cheery here!! And
she's a good carpenter too!

Mary Anne shares: This is wonderful. I have some "terrific" news of my
own; my little terrier, that I adopted from the Orange County Shelter 17
years ago is doing fine - YES, I said 17 years ago. I was working at
Mary Washington College (called at that time) and I "raced" to the
shelter, before they closed, to pick him up. He had been brought in the
night before (fortunately had only one night to spend there). He
continues to be a blessing to us and to be a mentor to our other dog,
Winston, and our four inside cats. We also have feral kitties. Thank
you for the work that you do!!

Meet the New Puppy
I have to give you a warning before you watch this. It has a couple PG
words in it. I try to only share G rated things. This is mild PG and
some of my friends previewed it and said it was worth sharing! So if a
couple PG words offend you, please skip it.

You know what's really great? So many people are caring about us
critters these days. We're getting so much more press these days.
People are spreading the word and helping to save us! I love this new

And do you know why the world is getting to be a better and better place
for us animals every day? It's cuz of people like you. People who say
YES you're important enough to vote for every day - ONLY 12 MORE DAYS -
YES I'll donate money so you can eat - YES I'll volunteer to clean your
litter box - YES I'll support animal groups. YES I vote for LIFE !!!!

Thank you my Heroes!!

I love you very very much,

PS If you don't want your Daily Good New, just let me know! A couple of
you have said you only want Hairballs with out the Good News!! That's
ok! Just tell me. I'm here to make you happy, just tell me how! If
Good New don't make you happy - I could always start Bad News, but, as
you hoomans say, why reinvent the wheel - that's what you've got tv and
newspapers for !!!!!
