Merci, Furriends and Photos

On this date in 2003, Jan adopted Merci from the local animal shelter. This is also Merci's "official" birthday. She's either 8 or 9 years young today.

Happy Barkday & Gotcha Day, Merci!

We look forward to many more years and walks together.


We voted in the Furriends of the CB Auction photo contest to raise funds for Sweet Praline.(Oops.  Praline, thanks for leaving the comment to remind us.  This CB contest is to raise money for Maxie!) Have you voted yet? The voting ends July 22nd. Guess what day this is? You guessed it! There are 4 photo categories: Cats Real; Cats virtual; Dog Real; Dog Virtual. Vote here.

We wanted to be able to list the entries in our Summer Fun with Pet Humans photo contest yesterday but we were so late getting it posted we had to skip it.  As it was we barely published the winner's name on the day we said we would.  Yep, 11:59 pm yesterday. How's that for squeaking under the wire?  If you missed it, you can read it here.

Anyway, we thought we would make it easier for you to view them by posting the links to the photos on Chicken Soup for the Pet Lover's Soul Flickr site. There were some of you who intended to enter and just didn't manage it.  There is so much going on it's hard to keep up or to remember everything.  But we hope you will be able to enter the next ... whatever it turns out to be.

These were the entries, listed in order of submission.  

Fenris

Artemesia

Scylla

Socks

Peepers the goat

Life with Dogs

Ben from Hansel's blog

Princess Isis, Ben's cousin


We were rushing to do this list and Ben and Isis were omitted. We have added them here and will re-post the two of them tomorrow so those who missed their photos can view them.  We apologize.  But we assure you, they were NOT left out of the drawing!

Have a purring and tail wagging day.

    By the way, the photo contest is for Maxie and not me. The CB was so wonderful in helping me with my recent surgery, but now it's on to someone else that needs help.

    I voted too!
