Exciting Updates!

I have been blown away in the past few days by the response from people wishing to help with Callie's surgery. What a busy week! First, thank you to the people who are unable to attend the rock show but have generously sent in donations for Callie's surgery. We will miss you at the show but your donation means so much! We are creeping ever closer to our goal of paying for that operation.

Second, I'm excited to report that the show and Callie's situation were featured on Dishpan Hands Radio, CJMQ FM with Sheila Q., last Wednesday night! Brian did a great interview and you can't imagine how excited I was to hear about lil Callie on the radio. In case you missed it, here's a recording from the DH Radio show!

Thanks Amanda, for recording it!

Third, and very exciting, we've received a really generous prize to be offered at the rock show. Éléphant Mauve has donated a pet photography package valued at $350.00, and everyone who comes to the show will be entered to win it!  Here's EM's description of the prize:

 "We offer pet portraits and family portraits that include your furry, feathery and scaly friends.
This personalized, in-home package includes seven poses in your choice of size, and all retouches (removal of pet hair, pimples, drool etc.)!
*To get the most accurate representation of your pet and to have creative input in your images, the winner will be interviewed before the portrait session takes place.
Our photographers are very relaxed, experienced with animals, and provide a lasting, memorable experience."
(EM will be on site during the show, and for more information about EM you can visit
I am so grateful to EM for offering such a fun prize, and I can't wait to see who wins it on March 31st! You've got to be there to win, so I hope we'll see you there!

Finally, yesterday was St. Patrick's day, and in the spirit of the holiday I had a mini photo shoot with Callie! She didn't love the little hat, but it was too cute to resist.

Thanks again to everyone who has donated. For anyone who can make it, we would love to see you at the rock show! $5 at the door could win you the $350 prize!
Thursday, March 31st - the Cabaret Playhouse at 8:00 p.m. See you there!
