Taking Care of Our Own and 25 Days of Holiday Fun

Badge by Ann @ Zoolantry
Before we start with the 25 Days of Holiday Fun, have you read about how you can help Easy's Family?? Mayorz Murphy and Stanley have posted the following on how we can help Easy's family take care of any outstanding Vet bills:

Blogville Takes Care Of Its Own!

By now you have all heard of our friend Easy's passing.  As you can imagine, his family is devastated beyond words.  All of Blogville shares in their mourning.  Easy was well known and much loved by so many! Many of us wish there was "something" we could do.  Well there is something you can do.

Easy's insurance did not cover any of the costs to the ER dogtur who provided the service and ultimately operated on Easy.  So we want to take the financial loss part away from his family and reimburse them for his medical care.  It was bad enough to lose their beloved best friend!

 To Donate Money For Easy’s Medical Expenses:

PayPal – The fastest way is PayPal.  Because of the differing currencies we encourage you to use this method.  The money will go into an account (monitored by Idaho Pugs) and then transferred to Easy’s Family.  When you donate the money select the option “Sending Money To A Friend”.  Make sure you select that option! To use PayPal you need your own account (sets up quickly and easily).  Go to PayPal and send the money to pugranch2[AT]msn[DOT]com

We are trying to avoid setting up a GOFUNDME page because they take a larger part of the donation for their fee (5%+) and we want as much money as possible to go towards Easy’s medical expenses.  

There will also be an auction announced soon by Mollie & Alfie One Wing.

Thank you for making "LOVE" a verb!!



We thought about cancelling today's 25 Days of Holiday Fun, but knew Angel Easy would be with us in spirit and want to continue having fun in Blogville. 

One of our favorite Holiday Traditions in our annual 
Holiday Pawty AND Dory's Birthday Bash! 

 Mr. Bailey and I had our first dance in 2014 at my 11th Birthday...

...and we had one of our first big Blogville photos in 2014 too!!

Last year, we had a fun Twerk Mob led by Madi!

and Mr. Bailey and I spent a very romantic evening together!

This year, on December 26th, I am going to turn THIRTEEN and I will officially be a teenager! Mr. Bailey and I are hosting the Third Annual Blogville Gala and Birthday Bash!!

Email your pictures to my Assistant (aka Mama) at

A pawty??? Oh boy!!

The show must go on as they say, and we know Easy would not want his death to stop us from celebrating life. We are sure he is joining us from the bridge. That party sounds awesome! We will have to get our best clothes on.

Emma said...

Oh my gosh, turning into a teenager! That gives you a license to do what you want and to irritate your human when you feel like it! Oh boy! We are so sad about Easy, and we know his family is devastated. Just a tragic thing. Blogville is wonderful to set up help for them.

A teenager? Oh my, oh my! I hope you won't start putting chewing gum under the seats. But a party sounds great.

I think that 2014 Christmas party was the first Blogville event I attended.

Casey said...

25 days of FUN! We can't wait. We'll get Momma to send our pictures in real soon.

Madi and Mom said...

Ohhhhh Dory, momma and boyz.........you all know how to pawty hearty. We know what you mean but Easy was a guy who loved to mingle with his buds and budettes. I think he would want this festivity to move on...he is watching just like Santa so everyone be on your best behavior.

Miss Dory - I remember that first dance so well - and we have made some wonderful memories since then haven't we! We know that Easy would want the fun to go on - he was that kind of guy and we sure will miss him. Thanks for sharing the message!
Mr Bailey
Hazel & Mabel too

Murphy said...

We have no doubt at all that Easy would want the fun and antics to continue!!

Your Pals,

We just know that this year's bash will be even better than any before - you always do such a great job with parties!!!

We were happy to make a contribution to Easy's fund - wish it could have been more, but every little bit helps.

Those are great memories. We hope we can get our mom to send you some pictures. Maybe we can even ask some pups to be our dates.

Hahahah! Momma was just looking at your Barkday card from last year Miss Dory! We are planning on joining in this year if Mom's W.O.R.K. doesn't get in the way! We are heading to Pay Pal right now to help out Easy's Mom and Dad.

We hope we can muster up some excitement for the pawty. This past week has been way too sad for us but we'll try.

I love to see the phodographs of former Blogville pawties. I'm sure this one will be as much fun!
