Thursday in the Garden ~

Blooming today in the garden  ~

A big thank you to all who entered
the calendar girls give-away.
Cathy D, a former co-worker
was the first name drawn and
chose the hooked crow mat.
was the second winner.
3936 votes were cast and
Ohio Pug Rescue has that much more
cash to pay vet bills.
(Vet bills for the month of June
totalled more than $7000.)
* * * * *
I have decided to suspend my goals list
for the rest of the summer.
It is just too busy of a time.
Look for it to return
in the fall :)
* * * * *
Just a reminder to anyone within
driving distance of Milan, Ohio.
There is a wonderful antique show
on the town square
this Sunday, rain or shine.
It is a quality show but a few bargains
can be found.
Best of all,
there is no admission charge!

Thank you so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)

    Special thanks to all of Lauren's wonderful followers & members of Eema's Fan Club for your overwhelming support & generous donations to OPR. I kept checking on the girls' tally esp. as July 1 was approaching & it just kept shooting up! So many pug darling will be helped. It warms my heart & makes me teary-eyed to think of how many people love Eema. I know we'd all agree that her first pugmom, Lauren, is a remarkable person. To open her heart & show Eema love & kindness & then to be able to share her story & affect so many people is a miracle. To update you on Eema- she is still comfortable but it's a day at a time. Knowing that next year she'll be smiling in the sun in the calendar pic will be a reminder of happy times we shared. Thanks for helping & caring. Dolly
