I pledge allegiance...

Hey Everydoggie and Girl Girl...

Thanks for all the great words of encouragement on the Joey situation...I'm feeling so much better now. You pups always set me straight. I was kinda worried about Joey, but everydoggie was right, I went home with my Mom, not Joey. I think I'll keep him around as a friend...but that's it. He's NOT coming home with us...not ever.

Now on to some wonderful news...Fei and Eve reached their goal of 25 DWB'ers for their pledge - Woo Hoo!!! My Mom and I also pledged so I thought I would tell you about the organization that we donated to. It's called Wonder Dog Rescue...how fitting, right? I'm Wonder Ruby, they are Wonder Dogs...I'm a Boston Terrier...they rescue Boston Terriers...you get the picture.

Wonder Dog Rescue is located in San Francisco (can you believe there is no BT rescue in Sacramento!). Although they specialize in BTs, if they have the space they will take any doggie in need. Here's what they do...

We are a dedicated volunteer group working primarily out of the San Francisco Bay Area. We've saved blind and deaf dogs, puppies as young as two weeks and seniors as old as 15! Each animal has so much to offer... and we learn so much by opening our hearts to these deserving companions.

When a dog comes into rescue he or she is evaluated carefully. Some dogs have particular needs, and receive medical care or behavior modification. We work with each dog, giving them the love and structure they need to move onward.

Dogs stay in foster homes until they are matched with their ideal family. We want these adoptions to be life long, and take this very seriously!

I love that...they want their adoptions to be life long!!! Isn't that the way it should be???

When me and my Mom learned that the pledge had been successful, Mom went right over to the Wonder Dog web site, whipped out the magical plastic card she has, and made our pledge. But Mom thought it was really important that Wonder Dog knew WHY we had donated. So my smartie-pants Mom sent a really nice email to them. She was kinda worried they would think she was a little crazy because she said that I had a blog (now why would THAT be crazy - look at how many of us doggies have blogs! ). But the nice lady from Wonder Dog wrote back at how appreciative she was and how cool it was that we all had blogs. She even sent me this really cool thank you card...

Make sure you go check the card out...the doggie talks and his eyes follow you...kinda creepy - but very cool!

Anyhowl...I'm very happy that we were able to help...even if it was just a little. Mom said that she would stay in touch with the Wonder Dog lady, Linda (I think I'll just call her Wonder Linda!) and help when we can. I'm so glad there are very kind and generous people out there who are willing to help all these poor pups. Thanks Fei and Eve for thinking of such a great thing to do!

Oh my DOG! That card is awesome!!! Did you notice that it will cross it's eyes? If you put your curser between the eyes, they will cross for a split second. Way to go for donating to the rescue. You are soooo cool!

Hugs,
Sitka

Hi Ruby
Thank you so much for sharing with us about Wonder Dog Rescue.
I LOVED that card. Super cool.

By the way, Ruby, could you send me an email with your snail mail address?

I'd like to send you something from Japan!

Love
Fei

You should tell them they should sell T-Shirts and buttons because that logo is really cool and it would help advertise and raise money! I could even help I run a CafePress shop and know how to set them up!

Ruby, you and your Mommy are such sweeties!! Donating to sick and homeless doggys is such a super cause. Mommy and I go to the store and buy doggy food to give to the shelters. No dog should go hungry, right?

That card is sweet!! We watched it 3 times...

It's always cool to help rescue places - they always seem to be full of unwanted dogs.....

So they need us to help in whatever ways we can.

Well done to your mom

You guys are super nice.
About our blogs my mommy does not tell people because she thinks that they will think that she is obsessed with me(so whats wrong with that)but my daddy tells everyone about it!!!
But my mommy wants to write a childrens book one day with a Jack russell in it so this is great practise and she meets nice people.

Dearest Ruby,
Tell your Mom I belong to MUSH (it has nothing to do with soft food). Malamute Rescue -
I take in Malamute dogs, to save them from the kennel (when they can't find a home for them) and help place them to good families. Malamutes are difficult to place because they are so BIG and require lots of space to run and play.
Anyway- I thought your card was super cool, just like you!

you are absolutely inpsiring, ruby. i support you entirely in your efforts to help bostons and other doggins, and admire your canine-itarianism.

i wonder if there's a yorkie rescue somewhere - it's probably connected to some howllywood rescue efforts - you know, to save all the poor babies that get adopted by the starlettes who just want them for accessories. there's a lot of that going around.

Whoa--that logo is the coolest thing ever! It's like your superhero symbol.

The Boston's voice on the card kind of creeped me out. And he knows so much about you!
