My 'Friday Finds' for 1/11/2013
First, I have found many new visitors and followers on my blog! So let me say "Hello and nice to meet you" and a great big "Thank You" to all, including:
Maggie and Duke at 2 Punk Dogs
Sue Kottwitz at For Love of a Dog
Tootsie at Bicontinental Dachshund
Puddles, Albert and Whitney at We Three Doxies
Murray and Company at Murray's Mouth
Alien at Romance Puppy
Kirby and his family at Kirby's Dawg Blog
and...Sophie at From Sophie's View
Next, I was nominated by both Kirby at Kirby's Dawg Blog AND Gizmo at Terrier Torrent for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award. Thank you so much Kirby and Gizmo! I am honored.
I will need to review the rules for the Award and then I am going to try to write a most inspirational post about it! Stay tuned.
And the last thing I found was a new friend on Twitter - Erin. She is the 'tweeter' for a cause that I have been interested in for some time - Col. Potter's Cairn Terrier Rescue Network (CP - @ColPotterRescue)!
Some back story: I was NOT adopted from CP. Ma only came to find CP after looking up Cairn information on the computer. She limits her visits to the 'Adoptable Cairns' page because she wants to help them all (and dog help me if Ma had a whole pack of Cairns for me to share the house with!).
CP is not a local rescue, but a national rescue. CP rescues Cairns from all over, and from every circumstance, and places them in foster homes and arranges for adoptions. Their motto is the best: "Matching Cairns in need of homes with Homes in need of Cairns". I love it!
Anyway, Erin has given me permission to highlight some of the adoptable Cairn Terriers that CP has in foster homes in my area on my blog. (Remember my resolution to help shelters and rescues?!? I did it!!!) So, here I go!
Honora (6 year old Wheaten female fostered in Mt. Dora, FL)
Her owner in Long Island surrendered her after Superstorm Sandy. She has itchy allergies (like me!) so her fur is only starting to come back. But she is a doll, don't you think?
Madeira (2 year old Wheaten female fostered in Tampa, FL)
Ooh, Madeira is probably still in terrier-puppy mode, a really fun time! She is learning tricks in her foster home and she needs to be the only pet in her forever home.
Minnow (4 year old Wheaten female in Auburndale, FL)
BOL! Minnow has the makings of a #Destructogang member - she loves to shred paper and raid the toy box. But she is a sweet girl who even puts herself to bed at night.
Needles (10 year old Wheaten male fostered in Bradenton, FL)
He is special!! Poor Needles has been in CP's care since April 2012 (probably because he is "older") and could really use a forever home (you know...we Cairns can live well into our teen years!!). He is a wise dog who loves kids and walks.
If you, or someone you know, lives in a home in need of a Cairn Terrier won't you please share these adorable dogs - and all the other rescued Cairns at Col. Potter's Cairn Terrier Rescue Network website - with them?!? Remember...every dog deserves a forever home.
Well, those are my "Finds" for this Friday. It was another great week for me! I have joined the Follow-Up Friday blog hop this week - it's my first time. Thanks to Bringing Up Bella for hosting.
What did you "find" this week? Whatever you found, I hope it was PAWESOME!
Have a great weekend!
