2007 Walk for Animals - Go, Lily & Julie!

My friends, Julie & Lily, are signed up for the 2007 Walk for Animals event on May 5th. Apparently, Momma and I will also be walking (as long as we can find a babysitter for Claire). Stew will be spending the day with his buddy, Jimmy, as they prepare for the Twins vs. Red Sox baseball (night) game. As I'm sure you all know, it's an all-day ordeal preparing for a ball game... let's just hope Stew doesn't appear on the jumbotron with his pants off OR get thrown in jail... or both.

Anyway, without Julie's permission, I'm posting her plea for dollars (see her letter below). Unfortunately, I wasn't the first to contribute to her campaign, but I believe I was #2 (damn you, Penz/Bellus Clan! -- imagine me shaking my paw at you). I'm confident this gets me nothing. Additionally -- and also without Julie's permission -- I'm posting a picture of her with Al Franken. No reason. I just like it. Julie's friend, Jen, is standing to Al's left; however, I don't know Jen nor do I have her permission to post her picture on the Internet. I'm fairly confident Julie won't sue me, but I'm not sure this Jen person can be trusted (I think she's an attorney). Therefore, better safe than sorry. Lastly, so as not to alienate the conservative readers of this blog, I'm also including a picture of your posterboy, Rush Limbaugh. If Fox Noise can claim to be fair and balanced, then so can I! I downloaded Rush's image from the Internet, and I believe it's his mugshot from when he was busted on drug charges. I considered posting Bill O'Reilly's mug instead, but I draw the line at phone sex enthusiasts.

Now, on to the good stuff... please help Julie help the animals that can't help themselves.


I recently accepted the challenge to participate and raise funds for the newly-merged humane society's 2007 Walk for Animals. This annual event (and largest animal walk in the country) helps support the programs at five Twin Cities area shelters. I am asking for your help to support my fundraising efforts and a cause that is close to my heart. Your tax-deductible gift will make a difference in helping to ensure the health and welfare of more than 35,000 animals annually. The pets in our lives give us a lot. Help me help to give back. You can make your donation online by simply clicking the link at the bottom of this message. Thank you!

In other news, some words of wisdom sent by Aunt Dee (from Florida):

Once upon a time, there was a nonconforming sparrow who decided he would NOT fly south for the winter. However, soon the weather turned so cold that he reluctantly started to fly south. In a short time ice began to form on his wings, and he fell to earth in a barnyard, almost frozen. A cow passed by and crapped all over the little sparrow. The sparrow thought it was the end. But it turns out that the manure warmed him and defrosted his wings. Warm and happy, able to breathe, he started to sing. Just then, a large cat came by and, hearing the chirping, investigated the sounds. The cat cleared away the manure, found the chirping bird and promptly ate him... The moral of this story:

1. Everyone who craps on you is not necessarily your enemy.

2. Everyone who gets you out of the crap you're in is not necessarily your friend.

3. If you're warm and happy in a pile of crap -- keep your mouth shut!


Support my dawgs!

Here's where I put stuff I support...

About This Blog

Commentary from a stay-at-home dad on daily happenings and misadventures while helping raise a wonderful little girl. The goal is to employ wit, sarcasm and/or humor to make the blog pseudo-entertaining. Then again, setting goals never really worked for me, but maybe you'll chuckle anyway.

THE SAHD CLUB - A rip-off of the letter written by the kids from the 1980's blockbuster hit, The Breakfast Club.

THE DOG DISH - Here you'll find the occasional rant or story written from a dog's point of view.

COMEDY - Here you'll find stuff I think is funny, typically video clips, cartoons or jokes.
