We entered Merci in week two of the Cutest Dog Competition, but we have spent so much time offline with computer problems or the CDC site wouldn't let our friends vote or .... So we've pretty much given up hope of winning anything, but there are only two weeks left so we're going to stick it out.
If you would like to vote for Merci -- and we think she is the cutest dog! -- this is a direct link to her voting page.
Since we have financial needs and Jan has 9 of us to support -- kind of a mini rescue of her own -- we aren't promising to give everything we might win away as some are doing, but we would give $50 of the weekly prize of $500 to a blogger or animal group in need at the time. We can't donate it to the local shelter; it's run by the county, not on donation. But since Jan has long been helping furries even when she' has little or no income, you know there would be furries benefiting.
And now we have to give the computer back to Jan. She has more work to do. The computer is slowly coming together. She debated over reinstalling Works Suite 2005 so she can have Word again, but instead decided to install Open Office. Now she has to learn how to use it, since she has a local Humane Society column that is due first thing tomorrow morning.
We'll be "seeing" you soon.
Crystal, Cotton, Merci, Cyndi, Percy, Cameron, Buddy, Rusty & Sam
