I am jumping for joy this morning!

 I was going to have a big post this morning about some legal troubles LBR is facing. See, some meanie jerkface reported us for not paying state sales tax. We said "Of course not, because shelters and rescues are exempt!" Everyone knew that. All rescues operated that way, and all our tax people told us we were right. Except when the Attorney General looked at the law because of the complaint, he said, "Uh-oh, the law only says shelters. Rescues have to pay!" Not only were we going to have to pay back taxes to 2007, but also interest and penalties of over $30,000!!! It could've driven us out of business, and definitely would've destroyed smaller rescues.

So why am I jumping for joy?

 We heard from the Enforcement Division down in Austin, after THEY heard from some state legislators we'd contacted. They looked at the situation and said, "Don't be silly, why should you have to pay all that when everyone thought you were doing it right until now?" Those are some smart pups!! So no back taxes, no interest, and no penalties! We'll still have to pay sales tax from now on -- which is silly, and we hope we can change that law in the future -- but it won't drive us out of business!

So get your FriYAY on and join LBR in celebrating!!!!

New furiends

Some of you might have spotted a new buddy of mine in my Teefers Tuesday post. Everyone say hi to Tree Rat!

Don't worry, he's much nicer than most tree rats. He doesn't climb trees or throw acorns or chatter. He just squeaks occasionally. He's from the same folks who made my Tribble, so Momma likes that he's nice and sturdy.

 "Om nom nom nom nom!"

Um....he said he wanted to be a chipmunk, so I took off his tail. It was out of kindness, honest!

Teefers Tuesday

As I was playing with my new tree rat the other day, Momma caught me as I looked up at her.

She started laughing and said that would make a grreat Teefers Tuesday post. I took a look and said, "That's pretty good, Momma, but I can do better. CHEEEEEEEEEESE!"

Happy Teefers Tuesday, efurrybody!

I just have to look up at my momma and think about how much I love her.

(And how much I love the food she's eating.)

Lucky day!

Today is Friday the 13th. Apparently some humans consider it bad luck, but they're just nuts! Consider these impawtant facts:

1. My grandpa asked Grandma out on their furst date on Friday the 13th.
2. The doctor who delivered Momma was born on Friday the 13th.


3. Momma was born on Friday the 13th!

Obviously 1 + 2 + 3 = Friday the 13th is a pretty darn lucky day!! Don't you agree?

Hard at work!

Momma says she's never had a dog who did this before, at least not so dedicatedly instead of the occassional lick.

 I tell her she just has dirty feet and I need to keep them clean!!

Do any of you clean your human's feet like this?

Wait a minute!

What's that, Momma? It's Tongue Out Tuesday? Well yeah, of course I want to pawticipate. Just let me get ready!

Momma! I wasn't ready!! You pawmised not to take any more pictures where I wasn't expecting it! Now I just looked stupid.

 Why don't you sit in the corner and think about what you did. I'm very disappointed in you.

Sheesh. Humans! You just can't trust them some days.
