This pic is me and my best girl... Chauncee! My lovely and talented friend Alison Downey took this picture of us last weekend! Isn't she an excellent photographer? She has a great way of capturing us. I love my dog to pieces - in fact Simon thinks I love her more than him. I always try to explain how its not more its just different and he always nods - knowingly. Chauncee is a 14 year old Sharpei and I know that her days are numbered and I'm just trying to remember to love on her while she's here. I'm grateful for the time I've spent with her and I'll always cherish this photo - thanks, Ali! In light of all of that I am posting the following information for a fellow dog lover... bid if you can.
CLICK THE TITLE OF MY POST TO GO DIRECTLY TO AUCTION ITEM - read on for more information.
As you may or may not know, Bernie Berlin runs A Place to Bark...and Meow... a private rescue for animals. In addition to being an outstanding artist, Bernie has a huge heart & is driven to save as many animals as she can.
Someone I know got connected with a group doing an ATC auction to benefit Bernie's rescue efforts. The theme was Vintage Christmas Pets...and the resulting collection is now available for bidding. 100% of the proceeds will be donated to A Place to Bark as all of the artists donated their work.
Here's a link to the auction item:

Please take a look & pass this link on to anyone you think might be interested. And take a look at Bernie's blog... <http://aplacetobark .blogspot. com/> her ability to do this stressful and heartbreaking, though rewarding work rescuing animals just amazes me.
Of course, you could always make a donation to her rescue...every
little bit helps.
Thanks for taking the time to read this and for remembering the
animals in the Holiday season, whatever Holiday you celebrate.
