Community

I sat here pondering what is to be my latest topic until it hit me.

Community.

Webster has two  definitions:  1. society, area of people. 2. agreement, similarity

I think it happens in many different ways, if one is receptive to seeing it. Recent examples I’ve noticed:

When my beloved Cherie let me know it was time to make the OTRB journey, many, especially anipals I’ve met thru social media, expressed condolences and kind thoughts. I was overwhelmed by all of this. I honestly didn’t have a clue of how she impacted others by just caring about others less fortunate than she was.

The neighbors who found two discarded kittens. The young men let down their tough guy image and showed their heart when they found these little ones. I found a nice home for one and only decided this week that the second one, now known as Panky, is a nice addition to my household. The nice thing that came out of this is that we all came together and overlooked our differences to address the matter at hand.

One of my BFF was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. She shared it at her workplace and I am in awe like she was by how her co-workers have been totally supportive for her to fight this disease by adding her into their prayers and paws-itive thoughts.

Which brings me to this purpose of this topic. I wanted to reciprocate for all the love and support that was directed towards me recently. If my new little blog post can make a difference in “my Community”, it’s a step in that direction.    I have to admit, I’ve cut and pasted from my pal Diane who writes To Dog With Love. Also I want to mention that I am proud to be a part of the Mars Family via The Nutro Company.

 Write a Post, Help a Dog 2011

This year, as we head to the BlogPaws pet bloggers conference, Pedigree is resurrecting is insanely successful Write a Post, Help a Dog program. In 2010, 391 bloggers wrote about the program and with each post, Pedigree donated 20 pounds of its Healthy Longevity dog food to shelter animals. In all, 7,820 pounds of food was donated to two shelters renowned for their care of senior dogs: Muttville Senior Dog Rescue in San Francisco and Castaway Critters in Harrisburg, Pa.

How you can help in 2011

Simply spread the word about Write a Post, Help a Dog 2011 and once again Pedigree will donate 20 pounds of food for each blogger’s post.  Here’s all you need to include in your post:

  • The Write a Post, Help a Dog program is aimed at raising awareness and food for the more than four million dogs that wind up in shelters and breed rescues each year.
  • For each blog post mentioning the Pedigree Foundation from now until midnight ET on September 3, Pedigree will donate 20 pounds of its new dry Pedigree recipe food for dogs — its best recipe ever — to a shelter, because every dog deserves leading nutrition. 
  • The Pedigree Foundation — a 501 (C)(3) nonprofit organization is committed to helping dogs by providing grants to shelters and rescues and encouraging dog adoption. This year the Foundation has already raised more than $376,570 against its goal of $1.5 million to carry out its work to fund grants that not only help shelters operate, but to further shelter innovations.
The Pedigree Foundation depends on charitable contributions from individuals to carry out its mission to help dogs find loving homes. In addition to writing a blog post, here’s how you can help:
We’ll make it even easier to spread the word

    Can I just say what a relief to uncover somebody who truly knows what they’re discussing on the net. You definitely know how to bring an issue to light and make it important. More and more people need to look at this and understand this side of your story. I was surprised that you’re not more popular since you certainly possess the gift.
