Bark In The Alley at NRV Superbowl

I am not affiliated with the Montgomery County Friends of Animal Care & Control (FACC), but I promised a co-worker I would help spread the word.

On Sunday, October 20, 2013, the FACC is sponsoring “Bark in the Alley“, an afternoon of family bowling fun at the NRV SuperBowl in Christiansburg. The event takes place from 1pm – 3pm. Funds raised through this event will support their continued efforts on behalf of shelter dogs. A flyer with more information is available HERE. If you are looking for something different to do, consider being a part of Bark in the Alley on Sunday, October 20.

You can visit the FACC at their website or their Facebook page for more information.


Maybelline Waits At The Gate To Kitty Heaven

It’s that time.  Time for Maybelline to join D.De and T.Grumpy Badass in Kitty Heaven.  She’s the 3rd of the 4 kittens rescued at AISB in the VTCRC 13 years ago that we gave a home to.  (I couldn’t decide which 2, so to my husband’s chagrin I brought home all 4.)  They were definitely feral, although Maybelline was the easiest to get along with.  After a while they would love on me while I was cleaning the litter boxes and would at least show their little kitty faces at feeding time, but don’t try to pick them up … they would disappear in a flash.  Shadowdancer will be the only one left, but it’s only a matter of time before she makes her trip to Kitty Heaven.


Tic Leaves for Rainbow Bridge

Tic followed his brother, Snoopy Snickerdoodle, to Rainbow Bridge on February 25, 2013 around 4:45pm. To say he will be missed is an understatement, but he was able to leave with dignity and before the presumed bone tumor on his head caused him any more issues. Tic (aka, the Master-Blaster because he would blast off after anything that twitched and didn’t care what was in his way) was almost 12 years old and leaves behind his adopted young sister Sadie Mae and his human parents, Rick and Laurie.

A slideshow of Tic through the years is currently being put together and will be available from Laurie’s website.


Snickerdoodle Says Goodbye

Snoopy Snickerdoodle left for Rainbow Bridge on February 28, 2012 around 10:15am to find his old buddy Anchor. It was a peaceful and fitting send-off. When Dr. Todd arrived, Snickerdoodle went outside on his own and settled down in one of his favorite sun-bathing spots. It was a pretty morning, and he knew it was time. He will be greatly missed, but he was able to leave with dignity and before the auto-immune and presumed cancer consumed him. Snoopy Snickerdoodle (aka, the Pouf-Man from when he got all poufy-boufy while on Prednisone) was 10 1/2 years old and leaves behind his brother (and littermate) Tic and his human parents, Rick and Laurie.
