It's Day 3 of Mayzie's Rescue Me Week, and I have a very special boxer to talk about.
Meet ARETHA!! Isn't she just gorgeous? I just love her. She's a sweet little 1-year-old puppy who had a hard lot in life. Just like me, she had to fight through yucky demodex mange, a skin disease that makes you lose your fur. But she's a tough chick, and she is now certified healthy and ready to go! Just look at that pretty fur. :)
And did you know that she's cat-friendly too? Not a lot of boxers get the whole "cats are friends, not food/toys" mantra, but Aretha has it down pat!
If you'd like to learn more about Aretha, just visit Legacy Boxer Rescue and take a look at her bio! Then fill out an application and say you want to give Aretha the R-E-S-P-E-C-T she deserves!
PS -- Aretha just lurves her foster brother Denmark. They play and play and play all day. If you were thinking about maybe getting two boxers, they would love to find a furever home together!
And don't forget....
Here's the scoop! LBR is doing a special fundraising event this Friday, because it's 11-11-11 and that's just cool. :) We're encouraging everyone to donate just $11 to LBR that day. It's not a lot -- Mom said she's going to skip eating lunch out that day and it's covered! --but when aaaaaaall the pawesome LBR fans do it, it adds up to a LOT of money for the dogs!!
But wait, there's more! We're not just going to take your money without giving something in return. That's why LBR is going to have a day-long online event! If you go to www.savetheboxers.com, we're going to have a live chat set up from 11am to 11pm. We'll feauture a different LBR success story every hour, with our volunteers sharing stories and pictures about the various dogs. PLUS we're going to have prize drawings for stuff like LBR t-shirts and our new 2012 calendar! It's going to be a really amazing day.
By the way, yours truly will be the featured dog from noon to 1pm! My mom will be on hand to share stories about what an amazing dog I am -- and I'll be there to make sure she gets everything right. ;) We really hope you'll stop by, and please donate your $11 and encourage your friends to join in as well! Let's make this a big success!!
