I have a cute video for you today. Riley the dachshund waits impatiently for his Christmas stocking. ** Note to self: Search closets for our Christmas stockings. We've never seen a stocking. In fact, Jan has never mentioned them. Is she hiding and raiding our stockings?** Ahem, sorry I was sidetracked. Back to Riley.
Oh, the excitement! Listen to Riley's low whining in the beginning. And then ... and then ... well, see for yourself. Whee!

We have written a number of times in the past couple of years or so on Dogs in Brazil and we hope you will stay tuned to read about them again. The couple who rescues the dogs fell on hard times this year but they have fought and struggled to provide for the dogs they have and to see their dream of helping more come to fruition. They are in process of moving from one area to another, setting up new pens for the dogs, and also working on becoming a registered non profit. This was stalled due to lack of funds but friends and fans on Facebook and Twitter are helping them raise funds. Yesterday they posted the exciting news that someone has offered to match donations dollar for dollar up to $1000.
If you aren't acquainted with the couple behind Dogs in Brazil, go by and read some of their posts. We are rooting for these folks to be able to help even more dogs. And even if you can't donate, we hope you will root for them to succeed too. The lady's name is Jan (not our Jan) and she is a go-getter! At least stop by and say hello and wish her and her husband success in their mission.
