Randomness for Saturday

I trust that you are all enjoying your weekend. I have managed to cross a few things off my list of things to do.
Most of the day was eaten up by working on the pool. Duke better appreciate all that work.

Yesterday I got the following email:
Hi Ann,

I was browsing your website and saw many mentions about Westie dogs, I was curious if you might be interested in helping homeless Westie’s around the country? My name is Jeff Howard, and I work with Adopt-a-Pet.com. We help promote shelter dogs, and cats who need a loving home. Of course, naturally that means Westie’s too who are in a shelter looking for a forever home.

Now if I can direct your attention to the sidebar you will notice a rand new image. It's Duke's puplic service announcement with the link to Adopt-a-pet. Duke is all about helping those less fortunate than he is.

I managed to get photographic proof today that Duke is NOT deprived of his bacony yummies.

Still plenty of things I want to try and squeeze in to what's left of the day so that's as random as I'm going to get.

Duke is one pampered pooch, LOL! He should do well with the celebrity endorsement too!

Julie Harward said...

Way to go "Good Deed Duke"...I hope it helps other Westies a bunch, they are all just so cute! ;D

LDH said...

Good job, Duke! Helping out your buddies.

Ginny said...

I see the "Search Westies For Adoption" on your sidebar, and I clicked on it, too cool! I'm loving seeing Duke's big smile at the bacon treat!!

Fantastic job, Duke. You definitely deserve some bacon yummies for doing your public duty.
I hope you are enjoying your weekend :-)

What a good boy Duke is to be a spokes doggy for Adopt a pet. I'm actually looking for a tiny, long-haired Chihuahua girl for Gizzy to give him something to do besides sleep (yes, he's fixed!) but since we spend so much time indoors now as it is unbearable hot and will be for the next 5 months it would be nice if he had a little pal to follow around and watch and supervise ;-)

Grace said...

Good for you! An easy kindness, I'm sure they are thankful.

Antonella said...

Awe Duke, a gentlemen indeed! Always with a helping hand... you have such a kind heart it is great that you can help out. Hugs, antonella :-)

BeadedTail said...

Duke, that is very nice of you to help out other pups! You certainly deserve those treats!

Betsy from Tennessee said...

How neat, Ann, that you can help with Westies getting adopted... GREAT idea --and thanks to Jeff Howard for finding you...

We are in Oklahoma tonight.. Having a great time so far.
Hugs,
Betsy

What a great idea, and I love that PCA! I got really tickled at Duke's expression while looking at the bacon treat; filled with such utter longing :o)

Duni said...

I saw that button yesterday and I was thinking....how cool!!!
Love Duke's face as he is about to get his treat :)

p.s. your comment on my blog made me laugh!

Pat said...

Well done Duke and mom for helping out the little ones in need.

Grampy said...

I wish we could have another dog. A Westie would be a good addition to the family. Glad to see Duke getting his treats. Now lets go for a swim.

Philippa said...

What a noble calling for Duke, you must both be very proud! And he looks great on that sidebar badge.

Marg said...

That is a great idea Duke to help those doggies that need homes and help. That sure looks like some good bacon. Hope you gave Mom a big treat for fixing that pool for you. Take care.

FishHawk said...

Oh yes, it is good to keep the talent happy. Oh, and thank you for your efforts to help other puppies get plenty of bacon.

Your Duke is a cutie. We have 2 doggies in our lives. One is a cocker spaniel whose only mission in life is to play and other is a lhasapso who enjoys lazing around the most!

Donna said...

I love your little Duke - he is so cute. We have one adopted dog and he is so wonderful - grateful to be adopted - that is the only way to go.

Good luck.

Catherine said...

That Duke ~ he's doing a lovely thing putting out his own public service announcement. I believe a bacon yummy was truly in order!! :)

Happy Sunday ~ hope you get done everything you want to Ann!

Daisy said...

Duke, you have a good heart to help other Westies!

ps: for a second I thought that bacon was a long tongue!

Sandra said...

Sandra said...

Sandee said...

First I love your new look. Way cool. The very best.

How nice that Duke is going to run such a great public service announcement. Who better? Not a soul.

Have a terrific day. My best to Duke. :)

Sharkbytes said...

Good to know that Duke is so civic minded! (Anything for bacon, right?)

Lin said...

Yea! Duke as a spokesdog??! What a great idea!

DSS said...

I got that e-mail as well, and was going to do my Westie Wednesday on adopt a pet, but it was kindove a weird site. I asked that Jeff guy to give me more information on whether it was saving westies or just buying them. He hasn't replied. Hmmm....
