First I would like to report that my dog Noelle made a miraculous recovery overnight, and the bumps vanished as quickly as they appeared. Therefore I have now ruled out chicken pox as the cause, and have made a new diagnosis - Noelle has Vanishing Spot Disease. I'm sure the vet will be grateful to me for figuring out the problem. Since I've been unable to find any information about Vanishing Spot Disease on the Internet (can you believe it?! I thought everything was on the Internet!), I will have to let the vet know that we've discovered a new disease in dogs. Maybe Noelle will be written up in veterinary medical journals!
The contest isn't about Noelle's vanishing spots. It's about another doggie -one with amazing brindle furs. Her name is Mayzie, and she is a Mystery Breed Dog. At least she used to be. Then her mom and dad decided to have a Dee-En-Ay test done to find out what kind of breeds make up a Mayzie dog. And they decided to raise money for a rescue group named Mariah's Promise.
You can find out more about this project at Campaign to End BSL: Operation Denver.
Mayzie - she will be donating 50 cents for every guess on the results of her Dee-En-Ay test. You don't even have to be right, and she'll donate anyway! Every person and pet in your household can make a guess of their own. Plus another doggie named Zona offered to match the donations - so that is a total of $1.00 for each guess from a person or doggie or kitty cat. Then to make things even more interesting, JD and Max, two doggies living in the United Kingdom, are offered to donate 50 pence for each guess to their local rescue group known as Dog's Trust. And since Mayzie is one of Noelle's favoritest friends, Noelle has now offered to donate to All Paws Rescue, the rescue group I volunteer with, an amount matching whatever is donated to Mariah's Promise, in honor of Mayzie. She wanted to match the donations from JD and Max also, but I told her I couldn't convert pence into pennies if my life depended on it, so she should stick with matching the U.S. dollar amount. So please, help support rescue dogs in Colorado, the United Kingdom, and Missouri, by visiting Mayzie's blog and making a guess on what breed she is. Tomorrow is the LAST day of the contest, so go guess, right now! Even if you don't have a blog, you can just put in your name and e-mail address, and if you don't want to share your e-mail address, you can put in MY e-mail address and I will keep your prize if you win. Oh, I did mention there were prizes, right? So go already! Click here to guess! Thank you.
