Another Fundraiser

Hi Everyone!
It’s Cessna and Phoenix here. Mom is a little busy so, we offered to take over and let you all know about a fundraising project our friends over at Dog’s Eye view are undertaking.

Jack is from Guide Dogs of America, so L^2 has decided to begin their fundraising project for their upcoming 6 month anniversary. If you’d like some more information about the project you can also visit this post. Both Phoenix and I are not from Guide Dogs of America, but think it is important to help out friends when possible. If you’d like to help L^2 and Jack with their project, please visit the links we’ve provided for instructions on how to donate.

Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, Phoenix thinks we should tell you all about the wonderful toys Mommy and Daddy bought us and all about the treats they made.

On Tuesday Daddy came home from work with a big box – I don’t remember there being toys at his work…guess they were hiding them on me! When Mommy opened the box, there were some really fun things: a Galileo Bone, a Nylabone Double Action Revolving Chew, a liver flavor Nylabone, a lime green Tough By Nature Good Cuz, a lot of squeaky Air Kong Tennis Balls,a yellow stuffed duck and white stuffed lamb that honk, an orange and black JW Arachnoid Ball and two new Kong Wobblers that Mommy says is for Aiden and Reece. Canyon really likes the JW Arachnoid Ball and Air Kong Tennis Balls, Aspen likes the yellow duck and Phoenix says he is a little too old to be playing with all that, but finds it fun to grab one and tease canyon – I actually like doing the same thing!!

Then this weekend we got even more surprises! Mommy and Daddy made us new cookies to share. They made some shrimp ones for me by grinding the leftover tails and shells into a paste to mix with some spelt flour and then made some banana/cinnamon ones for the goldens . Then for Phoenix, Daddy made some more dehydrated veggies – turnip, sweet potato and a really weird purple one.

Well that’s all for now, but Phoenix and I hope you had a wonderful weekend and that you will try and help our friends sponsor a puppy.

Lots of Labrador kisses and tail wags,

Cessna and Phoenix

Posted For A Friend

A friend of mine is beginning to raise her 10th puppy for Lions Foundation of Canada Dog Guides (where I received all 3 of my guides) and to celebrate has taken on a special project. It costs approximately 20,000 to raise and train a dog guide, so Sam has decided to begin fund-raising for her puppy’s “scholarship”.

Romero is an 11 week old black lab golden cross and so far has proven to be a very smart and sweet boy. He’ll stay with Sam and her family for the next year and then move on to be trained for one of LFC’s five programs – Canine vision, Hearing Ear, Special Skills, Seizure Response or autism Assistance. If for any reason Romero doesn’t make it, the money she raises will be put towards another Dog Guide team.

Fund-raising ideas are still in the works, but since Romero was named for the Blue Jay’s pitcher, Ricky Romero, Sam has decided to begin with “Pitcher Pledges”. It’s up to you what is pledged, but here are some suggestions – 10 cents for every inning pitched, 1 dollar for every strike out or maybe 1000 dollars if he throws a no-hitter this season…use your imagination! You can send your contact information and pledge to dogguideromero@gmail.com and she’ll contact you when the baseball season is over to collect the donations (tax receipts can be given if desired) – which just happens to be right around Romero’s 1st birthday.
