We LOVE this blogging community!! Especially the things we've won such as when Havi was the Dog of the Day, and then featured on Pitter Patter and True Story Tuesday, and winning an antler form Maisie and Me, and wining a portrait from Art By Elizabeth. Were all lucky pups!
But I was especially astounded when I saw the participation In Two Pitties in the City's SuperLevi fundraiser. Photos came in from around the country (36 states to support Levi). And because we're a little short on cash, we tried to support via social media promotion. But Havi wasn't so happy about being left out...
I also loved Mayzie's Rescue Me week, where bloggers featured pups that need adoption on their blog last week!
I did not know about about That Touch of Pit, a blog run by a foster dad who pulls from Animal Haven (where I volunteer!) until Love and a Six Foot Leash featured him today! Where have I been?!
Saturday night after DS played hockey at Chelsea Piers, we settled in to watch the Season Three Premiere of our Favorite Show: Pitbulls and Parolees. It is about a woman who runs a ranch for pitbulls in Villalobos, CA and her employees are all parolees. She gives pups and people a chance that no one else would. Needless to say DS, Havi and I cry through every episode. Head on over to Chase Community Giving to vote (just one click!) and help them raise money for their ranch (run exclusively on donations) and check out some other GREAT charities. They are currently on their way cross country to rescue dogs from Hempstead, LI where pups were rescued from a dog fighting ring (this holds a special place in my heart, because I attended undergraduate there).
Also, check out this great article from Mashable.com about how one animal charity used social media to introduce their brand! I love social media. Geek.
Does anyone else watch Pitbulls and Parolees, what do you think?! Who else is a NYC blogger I don't know about?! What did everyone do this weekend?!
