Hey everybody! Polly here to take over Foster Mama’s “Friday Randomness” or whatever she calls it. I’ve been a busy girl these past few weeks running all over Kansas City and
showing off my beautiful honey-colored eyes hanging with my fellow man dog. So, let’s get this party of randomness started, shall we?
My Our Kibble for Facebook Likes campaign was a smashing success with 125 new likes (plus like a bazillion over 400 likes when we launched the Tiennot Knits Sweaters page!) and a TON of comments from people who had already liked us. So many comments, in fact, that Foster Mama and I were able to deliver 250 pounds of kibble to Unleashed Pet Rescue (plus several bags of dog treats)! I’ll be honest with you, I wasn’t thrilled when Foster Mama told me that all of the kibbles were going to other dogs and not directly into my belly. But then she explained to me that some dogs don’t get to live in a home while they wait for their furever families. She said that some dogs have to stay at a shelter (which is okay , but I’d rather not have that many roommates, so I think living at a home is definitely better. Don’t you think?) and they need people like us to donate yummy foodstuffs so the shelter can spend their money on other important stuff like medicines and Kong toys and marrow bones. So, after losing interest in what Foster Mama was saying and staring off into space for awhile deeply contemplating the needs of the shelter doggies, I said it was okay to give them the kibbles I she bought. I did think it was a bit cruel of her to make me sit in the back with all the kibbles while we drove it to the shelter dogs though.
2. Another fun thing I did last weekend was attend the Midwest Adopt-a-Bull Fashion-a-Bull fundraiser at Madewell put on by two of Foster Mama’s blogger friends – Crystal from Wayward Dogs and Katty Delux from Chronicles of a Sweet Tooth. I’m not really sure how a fundraiser works, but from what I can tell, it means that I got to walk around the mall with Foster Mama and practice my sits and shaking hands with the people. Oh, and I got to wear my new tutu (from my pal Athena and her mama far away in Pitlandia) and the fairy wings from Foster Mama’s first foster, Ginger Rogers! Apparently all of my walking around raised a whopping $300 for the Midwest Adopt-a-Bull doggies. Seriously, fundraising is sooooo easy!
3. Probably my most favorite thing I’ve done lately is hang out with my next door bestie, Lucy-Carolina. You see, Foster Mama started taking me to training classes with a nice lady named Melody at The Pet Connection recently. Melody told Foster Mama that she thinks I wasn’t properly socialized when I was younger and that’s why I go berserker when I see another dog when we’re out walking and why I try to stick my face right in Turk’s face even though I know he doesn’t like it. I can’t help it – I’m awkward. Sooooo…. Melody told Foster Mama that I need to learn how to play with chilled out dogs so I can learn the cues that puppies learn that I apparently missed out on. So that’s where Lucy-Carolina comes in. Foster Mama takes me and her cup of coffee next door to Lucy-Carolina’s house some mornings and chats with LC’s Foster Mama while LC and I play play play play play play play play play play play play play p-l-a-y (catch my drift?). Then I come home and sleep for a bazillion hours. It’s the best thing ever. Seriously, EVERYBODY needs a next door bestie. Am I right?
So that’s what’s been going on. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got a Friday morning marrow bone that is calling my name….
PS – Ooooh! I almost forgot! Foster Mama let me write my own adoption profile and it’s pretty awesome! Check it out here!
