Here are my children's furkids with their bunny ears getting ready for tomorrow. As you can tell from the photos they were not very amused (but we were!) but they were all good sports.
Mojo (he's a Maine Coon)
Dean, the reluctant shih-bunny
Balrog (a tortie)
Daisy, the sweet beagle
Elvis, my son's very own chat noir
This is sweet Daisy. She is a year old rescue dog from the Arizona Beagle Rescue. My son Pablo and his wife Ann adopted her two weeks ago. Daisy is adjusting nicely to her new home and to life with two kittens. She's coming to visit us tomorrow for Easter brunch. I'm really looking forward to her visit and to some play time with her. She's really a sweet pup!
Wishing everyone a happy and blessed Easter! :)
April is Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Month and my blog is going orange the entire month in support of the The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA).
Go Orange for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Month!
This April, the ASPCA invites you to join millions of animal lovers across the country as we celebrate Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Month. Starting four years ago as a small adoption event in New York City, the ASPCA’s April celebrations have mushroomed into a nationwide observance of the human-animal bond and our victories on behalf of animals. We encourage you to organize a pet parade in your neighborhood, get your town hall to light up in orange, or enter our Go Orange Photo Contest to show your love and support of the furry kind.
Last April was great—let’s make this one even better! Join us for April’s “Go Orange for Animals” campaign, and together we can improve the lives of animals in every corner of the country. Here are some ways you can participate:
•Snap a Photo—and Win a Prize!
Send us photos of unique ways that you, family, friends and pets have gone orange for animals! Our top 10 favorites will receive a very special ASPCA Prize Pack and be featured on our website.
•Throw a Party!
Become an ASPCA Ambassador and create your own grassroots event, inviting friends and family to sponsor your efforts on behalf of the ASPCA.
•Show Your Virtual Support
Dedicate your MySpace page, Facebook status or blog to the ASPCA during the month of April and encourage your friends to spread the word about our Go Orange campaign!
•Support Your Local Animal Shelter
Coordinate a Go Orange for Animals event with your local animal welfare group or shelter and donate the proceeds. Remember to alert local media about your event!
