Sleeping It Off

To the left - Rascal's in one of her favorite sleeping spots - On her comforters in back of the easy chair in the spare bedroom downstairs.

Rascal slept good last night and had a hard time getting up this morning. I think she was still worn out from all the excitement of the day before. On Saturday, we parked the car downtown and walked to Bentley's Corner Barkery, where she visited with her good buddies, the owners, Giovanni and Lisa.

After that, we walked to the library so the DH could pick up some DVDs on reserve. Rascal hasn't had a chance to walk around much, what with all the snow around, but the sidewalks were clear in that area. I think we enjoyed the outing as much as she did. (Don't worry, Rascal didn't go inside. I waited with her in the foyer.)

Anyway, afterwards, another surprise awaited Rascal. Our nephew, whom she loves dearly, came by so he could go with the DH to see a wrestling match. 

All in all, Rascal was happy and tired.

The Buddy Foundation Has Some Great Dogs for Adoption, Including Squiggy

We adopted Rascal from Chicagoland Dog Rescue, but there are many great organizations where you can adopt dogs. Last weekend The Buddy Foundation held an adoption day at Bentley's Corner Barkery in Arlington Heights, IL. To the left is one of our favorites. His name is Squiggy. Too bad we can't afford another dog, time or money wise. We're hoping someone gives a home to him very soon.

If you'd like to come over and see Squiggy, you can find him at The Buddy Foundation, 65 W. Seegers Road, Arlington Heights, IL 60005; Phone: 847-290-5806.

Thursday night, February 25, 2010, the Buddy Foundation is celebrating its 15th Birthday at Moretti's, formerly Freddies Roadhouse,  from 5-8pm, 1799 S. Busse Rd., Mt. Prospect, IL.

A donation of $35.00 includes a buffet, 3 drink tickets, plus a chance to enter a raffle or bid in an auction. It's a great cause. The DH and I plan to be there to support such a wonderful organizaiton.

Check out the entire lineup on the video below. Maybe you'd like one of the others, if not Squiggy.

Would you like a kiss?
I love giving kisses. Here I am ready to smooch at Bentley's Corner Barkery at their Valentine's Party.
