The Gift

Hello Friends.

On Sunday at church the lady that plays the key board in the band, Carol, said to my MOM that she had some stuff in the trunk of her car.  So MOM went with her and she opened her trunk and holy dog-o-lee.  There was all kinds of stuff in there.  Dog food, a real nice dog bed and all kinds of toys.  See Carol's dog, Cricket, went to the Rainbow Bridge a couple of weeks ago.  The stuff in Carol's trunk was Crickets, lots of it was brand new. 


Here is all the great stuff.  There is a duck, and a pig squeekie, tennis balls, and a real cool treat ball thingy with extra balls of treats to refill it, a crazy snake like thing with a tennis ball for a head, a really fascinating multi-colored creature with all kinds of legs, and a really cool purple Kong Wubba. I can tell you the bed is comfy and the kibble smells real good!  
Carol asked us if we could make sure that all this stuff could get to some doggies who would need it, doggies who may not have a bed or toys.  I can tell you that we know just the right place where there are some doggies who will LOVE this stuff and who will be very happy to receive it.  Doggies who are in need of a forever home.
Thank you Carol!!  We know Cricket was your special Golden girl and that you miss her very much.  Because of your great love for Cricket other doggies will feel some love because of your great gift.
My advice for you my friends is this: PASS IT ON!  In whatever way you can.  
Blessings,
Goose

  3. First Goose, please tell Miss Carol that we are so sorry to hear about her pupper and we are sending her BIG Doxie hugs and kisses to help try and heal her heart.

    Secondly, those are gonna be some very lucky doggers. All those really cool toys and food and bed and stuff we know will be very much appreciated by those who have less. Cricket would be most pleased.

    Thanks for sharing this little lesson of sharing with us all.

    Hugs,
    Lily Belle & Muffin

  8. Wow! Miss Carol is very generous - is she sure she wouldn't want to save it in case she gets a pup in the future? Either way, she is making some pup very happy!

  9. We are very sorry to hear that Miss Carol lost her friend...she must be having a difficult time...maybe you can spare a little extra cuddle time with her Goose. She gave some great gifts so that others can have a better life! Nothin' better than that!! We often give donations to our local shelter...they are always in need. You and your MOM and Miss Carol are extra special!! We are sending along extra hugs too!! xoxo Chloe and LadyBug
