Hugs From Around The World Day

MICAH:  Today is a special day.  It's Hugs From Around the World Day.

MARCUS:  Does that mean if I ask you for a hug, you'll hug me, Sam? 

SAM:  No way!  Cookies, Marcus, cookies!

CYNDI:  I think you mean "cooties", Sam.  

MERCI:  I thought cooties was a fictional disease that ...

SAM:  *elbows Merci in ribs*  Marcus doesn't know that. 

MARCUS:  So then what is Hugs from Around the World Day?

MERCI:  Hailey and Zaphod came up with the idea and Dory and her mom from Dory's Back Yard  made the graphic. Today is the big day!

(If you want to celebrate the day but aren't sure what to do, the directions are at Hailey and Zaphod Chronicles.)

CYNDI:  As you know our friends Stella Rose, Margaret Mae, and Angus McConnell from The Three Little Pugs have been kind of lonely lately.  Their dad was injured at work and broke his back in three places.

BUDDY:  Their mom hasn't been home very much since then but their dad is now in a hospital closer to home and hopefully will be home soon.

MARCUS:  So the pugs are brushing up on their nursing skills?

RUSTY:  I imagine so!  Their dad is going to need lots of love and special care that only a furry can give.  And their mom will need some too.

PERCY:  This day is for Blogville to tell Deb and Butch how much they are loved and appreciated and that we are all there for them.  In essence, Blogville is sending them one gigantic warm hug today!

MARCUS:  Oh, that's so nice.  Can I send a hug to someone else?

BUDDY:  I suppose so.  Who do you have in mind?

MARCUS:  Amber's mom, her family, and their canine pack.  They've been going through a lot, too, and we want them to know we care.

PERCY:  That's a good idea, Marcus.  And there are some other bloggers we know who have been / are going through rough times whose names we won't mention, but we sure do want to send them a big, warm hug too!  And anyone else in need of one today!

MARCUS:  Does this mean I can have a hug now, Sam?

SAM:  Back away.  Cookies, Marcus, cookies!
