Much to my surprise, Life With Dogs stopped by here and left a comment “Will do my best to help…”. I was thrilled. With such a huge following, anything posted on Nigel’s site would generate far more interest than my tiny blog (read by all of about 20 people. Thank you, btw!) and hopefully, and most importantly, generate some donations to help these greyhounds. In anticipation, I’ve checked the Life With Dogs site every day since, multiple times; nothing. Not even a mention. Well, damn. I figured they were just too busy over there.
Then yesterday rolled around and there was this little post. I was right, they were just too busy over there, because they were planning a charity auction with Carpe Canem! All proceeds go to the two greyhound rescue organizations that took in the abused greys, GALT and GU. Included in the auction with be the last Flat Nigel print; and it is an artist’s proof no less.
I have also donated a few items; packs of greyhound note cards featuring some of the images you have seen on this very blog, and two different 8 X 10 prints; one of “Treat Time?” (featured below) and one of “The Ride” (the masthead for this blog, scroll up) The auction will start on Thursday, July 22 and run through Wednesday, July 28. So go over there and bid and bid often!
Click here to go to the auction. There are already a large number of items to preview.
A big thank you should go out to Life With Dogs, Carpe Canum and all the other organizations that are donating items to the auction.
“Will do my best to help…” Sheesh, what an understatement. If everyone did their best like this, I can’t even imagine how much could be accomplished.
