Today I am taking time out from me to send out a very special thank you...and a very special thought
picture from Toby's blog
First a special thank you to our friends Toby and his Raiser. Toby's Raiser has spent the past year showing Toby how nice and kind humans can be PLUS helping to train Toby in various ways. Go and read about him...and say, as Khyra says, "Bye for Now" as he heads out to meet his next heart human.
Now Me and Mama don't usually put stuff that someone peemails (on the pooter) us on our posts, but this must have been a DOG thing, cause a PR lady emailed Mama last night about a TV Show that is going to be on PBS that will talk ALL about 4 families who are going to be getting service dogs like Toby to help them.
This is the description that Jenna sent us....
"I thought you and your Mama (& Bilbo!) might be interested in a new documentary coming out on April 21, 8 p.m. ET/7 p.m. CT. It is going to be a PBS primetime documentary called “Through a Dog’s Eyes.” This documentary will focus on four families as they meet their new best friend – a service dog through the non-profit Canine Assistants.
Puppy-lover Neil Patrick Harris is doing the voiceover, and Milk-Bone is sponsoring the film. Below I have provided a link to the video clip reel, if you wanted to share with your blog buddies!...."
Here is a link to the clip that Miss Jenna forwarded:
You Tube - "Through a Dogs Eyes"
Mama has watched the clip and says she recommends it very highly!
Once again it will be on April 21, 2010 at 8pm ET for dogs like Khyra, Mango and Norwood on the East Coast and for pups like Me, Riley, Star and the Houston Pittie Pack at 7pm CT. All you pups in Mountain Areas like Fiona and the Pacific area like Teddy and Benny and Lily...check your local listings.
How cool is that?? DOOGIE HOWSER is going to be doing the narration!! (Sorry puppies...Mama is stuck in a different time zone ALL TOGETHER)
And now for a Special Thought....
Fiona and Abby's little big sister Tai Chi went to the Rainbow Bridge last week. Mama has never met Tai Chi in person, but grew up with an apricot/brown poodle Charlie who Tai Chi reminded her of very much. Charlie lived to be like a million (Mama says 17 years) and was very set in his ways kind of like TaiChi. Mama and I are never very good at talking about how sorry we are for a loss. But we wanted Fiona and Abby (and their Mama and Daddy) to know we were thinking of them. If you haven't met Fiona and Abby, or would like to read more about TaiChi. You just HAVE to go visit them!
Run free Miss TaiChi!
Last but not least...Mama is working hard using her extra tuits on the GABE gift bags (Mama says bags are easier to give to the postman than baskets....Look for a special post tomorrow. Also be sure to go see ALL the cool links that Miss Twinkie...ummmm she has a REALLY long name...but I think you can just call her Twinkie..Anyway, click on the Logo above or click here and visit the links!
