Helping A Pug In Need - Well, More Than One

Hey folks

Well, it's been a very busy few days, and I've got lots of news to share about what's been happening... but first, I wanted to share an email I got from the folks over at Pacific Pug Rescue.

Now, I'm sure you know that Trish and I are "pug people" - we try not to be too "ooey-gooey" about our love for these snorty, goofy little dogs... but they really are wonderful little companions who love to do nothing but sit in people's laps and make them happy. Our two current four-legged children were both adopted from Pacific Pug Rescue - we figured it would be better to give a homeless dog somewhere to live instead of buying a "new dog" from the paper or a pet store. There are plenty of dogs out there who need good homes, and we'd rather give someone who's had a hard life up to this point a warm and caring home than pay a breeder to add to the population.

Anyway, the point is that Pacific Pug Rescue is a great organization, and they do good work for a lot of dogs who have been abandoned or surrendered by people who can't or won't give them the care they deserve. Check out the letter below and, as the Holiday season (and end-of-year-get-the-deductions-ready-for-next-year's-taxes-season) approaches, consider sending them a few bucks... your money will go to a REALLY good cause!

2008 was an extremely busy year for Pacific Pug Rescue. We took in 129 Pugs and Pug mixes. General contributions covered the gap between adoption donations and the cost of veterinary care. These gifts make a huge difference in our ability give homeless Pugs and Pug mixes a new life.

If you would like to donate, you may do so through Pay Pal by clicking on the Donate button, or by mailing a check to: Pacific Pug Rescue, P.O. Box 820032, Portland, OR 97282-1032.

You can find out more about how you can help these little furry clowns at Pacific Pug Rescue's web site: Give it some thought... I know times are tight for everyone right now, but even a few dollars can help these little guys out.
Hope you're all doing well...
