Carmine, Tylan, and I hope you had a great week. There’s lots of exciting events coming up for the holidays. Please be sure to check them out below and sign up for the things you’d like to participate in.
It’s Winnie’s Wish Auction time! May wonderful items will go up every day! Every penny raised above shipping will go to Winnie’s Wish for the health and upkeep of the rescue kitties! So bid early and bid often! It will be insta-auction style, and it runs from November 8th to December 10th.
Insta-auction means that each item is on its own timeline. Once a bid is placed, that item will sell tot he highest bidder five days after the first bid. Items will disappear after their time runs out, so don’t miss a favorite by waiting too long! Stop by, have fun, get wonderful things, and help the kitties!
The deadline to sign up for Secret Paws is tomorrow. Learn how to sign up here.

Over the Rainbow Bridge
Sadly, Sue Sehi-Smith from White Dog Blog has passed away.
In June of 2005, Sue Sehi-Smith began to share with us the White Dog Army and it is not possible to say how many dogs were held in her arms, how many felt her love and came through the doors of the home she and Steve shared in the years since. Their stories were told on the WHITE DOG BLOG, whether of hardship or joy and Sue treated each and every one equally. It is hard to think there will ever be another like her who gave so much, who cared so deeply.
May you rest well forever, Sue, and may your beloved Steve be at peace with memories of your times together. Please take a moment to leave words of condolence at both of these blogs, remembering Sue and all she has given to all of us ~ thank you.
