Bailey Rae and other goodness

Okay, quickly today...Bailey Rae is still here (yup, she got herself a middle name, unlike the rest of the household furry fellows whose "middle name" is really just their species, i.e. Paisley Dog Jackson, hehe).  She's fabulous, cuddly, playful, a good listener, and we couldn't be more pleased with our current pittie population. ;)

She is beautiful, don't you think?! =)  

The best news of all though is that she and Paisley are FRIENDS!  Can you believe it?!  They get along so well, eat side by side, quite often sleep together at night, and are just very peaceful together.  It is so lovely!   Yup, life is pretty easy-peasy with these 2, making us kind of lazy doggie parents really.  Though that is changing...an update on that soon. ;)

I hope to give an update on our month of "nothing new" that ended a while back.  The short version for now:  it was a SUCCESS!  =)  And then came this month, but I don't really want to talk about that. ;)

Some of you may know that I am slightly blog obsessed.  It's an affliction really.  Not sure of the cure.  BUT, it's not ALL bad because there are some wonderful things happening out there via blogs.  There are great ideas, and calls to action, and just lots of thought-provoking folks out there doing good and blogging about it. =)

Here is just a sampling of what has caught my eye lately...

BAD RAP to help group of OK dogs - You knew at least one was going to be dog related, right?!

Recycling Christmas - Um...AWESOME!  Note to fam, this is what I want for Christmas next year. *wink*  Okay, this OR for us to travel somewhere warm.  Not both because we don't want to take the stuff with us do we?!)

Cans for Comments - Having formerly managed an emergency food pantry, this idea really stuck out for me.  Of course, I had to suggest that they really give a treat and donate a bag or 2 of fresh produce too. ;)

And of course, I know there are lots of other people out there doing wonderful, amazing things and not necessarily blogging about it and that is awesome too.  Heck, if you're doing something great, I'd love to hear it!  Have some cool way of giving back to your community?  Or maybe some charity you think rocks and I should know about it?  Do tell!  

In the meantime, I'll be wrangling me some super Bugga and some foster dogs--like I said, update soon--and trying to stay warm and probably thinking about what else I can do this holiday season, or year-round, to make a positive impact, whether big or small.  Because it all adds up in the end, right?!

I'll sign off with this total mis-fire on the camera.  It just makes me giggle a little.  And even if all we can do sometimes is bring a smile to another person's face, then that is something in my book.

I know our Awana club asked for recycled toys and kid's items for their store, so other kids can buy them with their Awana bucks and give them as gifts to friends and family. We are cleaning out the closets!
