Fellow Blogger Needs Our Help

Hi All.  Sorry we've been absent of late.  The publicist went out of town last weekend and then worked like a madwoman at her stoopid job all week.  Sheesh.  At least we got to go for a nice hike today...

So here's the deal:

Barbara, of If I Didn't Have a Sense of Humor is in danger of losing her SENSE OF HUMOR!!   

Barbara, like many of us, has a lot on her plate with familial and financial responsibilities. She is generally upbeat and positive, keeping her readers laughing several times a week.

Now her sweet Minnie (a rottie mix - HELLO!!) needs to get ACL surgery on BOTH of her knees at 2 grand apiece...(Why didn't more of us go to VET school??)

We cannot afford to loose one drop of humor in our community.  If you can, please contribute to Minnie's surgery via the chip-in below.  If you are unable to do so at this time, please drop by Barbara's blog and offer her a little humor.  We know how much your support can help during a difficult time. 

Thanks for helping a friend who has helped many of us, and who has worked hard to keep our community the kind and positive place that it is.  

We're going to TRY and get the publicist to post some photos from her trip and more importantly some photos of US in a couple of days.

Hi Y'all,

So sorry to hear about Minnie's upcoming surgery.

It's so tough when we, the pawed ones, need medical help. We are supposed to be supporting you humans in your own trying times. Sigh...

Got to go lend my support to Minnie and Barbara.

Y'all come by now,

I am so glad you let us know about Minnie. We were so blessed by others who anonymously paid Berts bill for his surgery last week, so we are heading over to see if we can help a bit.

Can't wait to see your photos from your trip

This is a wonderful post!
Yes Barbara has helped many of us in one way or another. What a kind heart she has.
I sent her some green papers in the mail.
I also posted on my blog about Brabara and Minnie too!
You guys ROCK!

I'm so sorry to hear this sad news! I can only relate to financial issues and when I looked around I found there are financial aid organizations out there to help. Angels 4 Animals is an organization that helps people nationwide, for example. Go to my post here for more info:
