Hi.  I have to tellz you about a really great big sadz I have.  My GGP, Bob Hilliard, went to Rainbow Bridge on January 30.  I miss him so much.  He was such a nice and kind person.  You know without him, and my great grand ma, Louise Hilliard, there would be no Rikki's Refuge.  They were both really good people.  The kind of people you could count on and always trust.  The kind of people who were always kind. 

I'll let you know when we're gonna have a special memorial for GGP at Rikki's.  I hope you'll be able to come.

For now I need to tell you about Valentines Day

Yup that's right !!!!  

Somebody who wants to be Opie's Valentine has put up a $5,000 DOUBLE YOUR DONATION challenge for Valentines Day ....   

Can I count on YOU to help me DOUBLE that ???  

It takes lots more food in the winter time to keep all of us full and fat !!!  Won't you help with a meal ?

If you help me WIN the challenge to feel everybody for the rest of winter ....  I promise to go on a date with My Valentine ....  even if it is a hooman !!!!
