Chicago Marathon, Auntie C and a Thank You

Oh, hai, everbuddy! Happy Friday!


Okay, waaaaaay back in March, mom wrote a postie about how my Auntie C was gonna run in the Chicago Marathon to raise green papers for Alzheimer’s research. Mom gave out the linkie to Auntie C’s fundraising page and said if any of our furends wanted to donate some green papers, we sure would be grateful.

WELL…my furends are the BEST, most nicest, biggest hearted, kindest furends in the WORLD! Cuz everybuddy jumped right in and donated over 600 green papers!!!! Wowza! Is that Most Amazing or WHAT? All in all, she smashed her goal of 1500 green papers and raised 2,295 green papers!

So my Auntie C trained and trained and trained until FINALLY last Sunday was the big day! Here she is (in the middle) with her two packmates that ran with her.

And then they were off! And, well, as you can see, there was a lot of running. (I like running but I don’t think I woulda wanted to run over 26 miles!)

Mile 21 and she's still smiling!

Finally, they got to the finish line! Yay!

And they even got medals for being crazy strong enough to finish the whole thing!

All of us are super, duper, crazy proud of her and how hard she worked to raise green papers for an awfully good cause.

And we want to thank all of you SO MUCH for supporting my Auntie C and for being such generous, loving souls. We just feel so lucky to have you as our furends!

Where in the world is Mayzie?

Okay, so maybe you been wondering to yourself, “WHERE is that Mayzie? And Brudder Ranger? And Smudge? And Abby?”

Or, well, maybe you haven’t.

But either way, it’s been about 87 thousand years since I got mom to sit her tushie down and take my dictations. She’s all, “Oh, Mayzie, I’m sorry. I’ve just had a bad case of the busy brain. My clients this and my clients that.” Blah blah blah. It’s Most Obvious to me that the woman needs to get her priorities all straightened up.

ANYways…in case you WERE wondering, here’s a quick catch up on what’s been going on with us…

We went on another Shall-Ay Adventure…

And we’ve also been on walkies closer to home…

Mom went on a busy-ness trip to some place called Ball-in-the-Moor, Merryland…


And when she got back, we celebrated her birthday…


We’ve guarded the house…

And taken it easy…

I’ve rolled in the grass…

And snuggled with mom…

So, as you can see, it’s been a pretty good summer so far. But I sure do miss you all. I made mom PROMISE that we’d be around the bloggie more often and come visit our friends more often, too. We’ll see how well THAT works out.

Wiggles & Wags & Brindle Smoochies to you all!
