Sam: Hey, wanta hear a joke? This walrus waddled into a bar and .. Cotton, stop poking me. What do you mean it better be a clean joke? This walrus took a bath first. Okay, okay, I'll skip the joke and get right to our post for today.
We're thinking of getting a nice barstool so the clean walrus can come visit and I can finish my joke in peace. But the rest of the Funny Farmers are shaking their heads at me. Stay turned ... I mean, keep watching ... we'll let you know what we finally agree on.
As usual, we're running behind on posting news, but maybe that's okay because if all pet bloggers posted on the same subject at the same time, who would remind us all of what is coming? So we're not really late, we're just joining the queue so you don't forget.
Last year Snickers was very ill and the Two Special Wires, Jake & Ferg,i wanted to do something nice for their friend. We remember reading about this but we missed it, most likely because our computer was down again. And although dear Snickers has since left for the bridge, this act will be repeated annually.
As Jake & Fergi explained it to us -
The Worldwide Moment started last year with thoughts of a friend's ill dog in mind. Snickers (a wire fox terrier) was dying of canine olfactory cancer, and we simply wanted to rally as many of our friends as possible to send healing thoughts, simultaneously, to Snickers and her family, all at one very specific time. The idea took off and soon hundreds of people were participating, all around the globe. We all simply stopped what we were doing at 11:00 PM Greenwich Mean Time (4:00 PM in Denver) and were simultaneously silent for one minute. Thinking of Snickers .... or whomever. Then we all broke into some kind of chorus. It was powerful realizing hundreds of families around the globe were doing this all at the same moment. And it was decided to repeat the minute, annually. So, the same date and time were set.
You can email Jake & Fergi for the code -- be sure you have the corrected code - to the countdown clock for your sidebar. Click on the graphic or click here for the email address and further details.
We have a number of ill furry friends as well as human friends at this moment and we have lost quite a number of them in the past year. We will be thinking of them. Hope to "see you" there.
