Of course it had to be an animal theme and after sending over a few 'demos' to Dawn and Matt, they approved the doggy in the food dish one. So, I pulled out my Cricut that sits in a bottom drawer (yikes) and loaded my paper pups cartridge to cut out some dog shapes. Here are the styles of invites:
For one of the inside panels, I printed up Matthew's wishes for donations instead of gifts. I have a TON of animal stickers, so I added some to the left and right of the message.
Again, using the computer, I typed up the party info and added a few more stickers.
I was really touched that a 7-year old would think of donating instead of gifts. What a wonderful young man, but his parents are really great too - so it doesn't surprise me TOO much!!! I told them I would meet them at the shelter when they were going to bring up all the donations! I know the dogs and cats and rabbits will be so happy!!!
Staying on the dog-theme...........if you've been following my blog for a while, you might remember THIS post from September 2010 about my favorite dog Taz being adopted from the CT Humane Society. Sadly, Taz was returned to the shelter in November by the sister of the adopter, because she felt the adopter wasn't doing right by Taz. So, he came back to the shelter and we were all very sad, but happy to have him back if he wasn't being taken care of as he should of been. I didn't post anything about him being returned.
But....after months being back at the shelter.....Taz's day came again on Saturday, when he was re-adopted!! Now, as happy as I am....I'm a bit cautious to get OVERLY excited....until we (hopefully) get some positive updates from the adopter. He was loved by so many at the shelter and I know we all hope his new mom will see the special boy that he is and love him forever. Here are some pictures of Taz!
He was the best model at Christmas-time. He let us take so many pictures of him!
He's thinking: "Seriously, I'm back at the shelter again?"
"I can't wait until I have a yard to lounge around in"
I know Maria loves me so much! I'm a lucky dog, even if I'm at the shelter!
But I pray he's doing really well at his new home and I really really really hope we get some updates on him!
Not sure how many of you made it all the way to the end of this post!
Thanks for your visit!
