Bart's Birthday Comment-a-thon!!

Hi Everybody!!
It's ME, Ruby!  
I wanted to let you all know that this Sunday,
December 4, my handsome big brother,
BART turns 7!   

And while we'll be celebrating by doing all
our usual birthday stuff, like
hiking, and getting treats and maybe getting
a special surprise,
we're gonna be sad, too, cuz it would have been
Gizmo's birthday, too.  

We're very sad that he didn't even make it to 7.

Then Bart had this really good idea!!

We found out that our my friend Chubs who we
couldn't rescue because Bart's a wusie has
a fractured pelvis and will need to have surgery.

We thought that since we couldn't help Gizmo get better from his sickies, maybe we can help
Chubs feel better before he goes to his
most perfect home that ever was.

SO, in honor of Bart and Gizmo's Birthday
we're gonna have a 
to raise some money for Chubs's surgery.
for every comment left on our blog from 
Saturday, 12/3 at 7:00 AM through
Sunday, 12/4 at 7:00 PM
we will donate $1.00 to 
to help the Chubmeister!

Leave a comment and tell us something funny about yourself. We can use a laugh this year. Thanks!!

Ruby, I wouldn't miss Bart's birthday for anything! Mom and Dad have to be gone a lot that afternoon, but I will not let them forget to let me drop by for a visit.

Chubs is a lucky guy! Just not as interesting as The Most Interesting Dog in the World!

Prayers for Chubs and kudos to you, Ruby and Bart, for wanting to remember Gizmo by helping Chubs. Will be back on Sunday (after transporting a family of white GSDs). Happy Birthday, Bart!

Marjie said...

OK, I'm not funny, but how about our first Mastiff, Sarge? When Jeffrey was about a year old, wheeling around in his walker one day, he grabbed Sarge's bowl of puppy chow, hauled it up on the tray of his walker, and took up sharing with Sarge: one little round brown thing for Jeff, and one for Sarge. The kid was very slimy, but he only ate one or 2 puppy chows. And since he grew up to be 6'5", 230 pounds, it looks like it didn't hurt him any.

Birthday love to Bart, and in memory of darling Gizmo, too. Hope Chubs (AKA Thor 2) does well with his surgery.

Marjie said...

OK, I didn't realize that the comment-a-thon was starting tomorrow. I'm a dumbass!

Berts Blog said...

We will be back tomorrow and leave our comment cause we think it is wonderful way to remember Giz. and to say happy birthday to you Bart.

Dexter said...

Here's my comment! What a wonderful thing to do for poor old Chubs. And happy birthday to Bart (the little wussy dog).


FiveSibesMom said...

Comment-a-Thon is a great idea. We are back so we can say "Happy Birthday to Bart and to Gizmo beyond the Rainbow Bridge. And may all these wonderful well-wishers bring good vibes to Chubs so he may feel better soon!

GOOSE said...

I'm back with my comment. Happy Birthday Bart. And Mr. Chubs I hope you get better soon. What a wonderful thing you are doing.
