Ratchet is safe and Thank you for your support.

Thank you to all who signed the petition for Ratchet, he is now en-route to Kuwait and is due in Minnesota later this week, you can read the whole story HERE.

Secondly a huge THANK YOU to all who supported my week long fundraiser for Nowzad Dogs. If you participated by displaying a Nowzad Button or by Donating to Nowzad then please help yourselves to one of the images below, your support and generosity was very much appreciated.

Check out this great opportunity to own this fantastic pastel portrait of Nowzad by Sarah Gough, and a chance of a 2nd place prize of an oil painting portrait of your pet (unframed), that she will paint from photo's you supply.

Tickets are just £1 ($2) each and all the money raised will specifically support the current ongoing rescues of dogs that have adopted Servicemen and women in Afghanistan like ARNHEM.

Competition will close when all 2000 tickets are sold.

Sorry I haven't got around anyones blogs today or posted photos/recipes of my yummys. Mum has been a lazy mare.. I have no other excuse! Still, I guess she is entitled to a day off now and again!

Love and Tailwags,

Ben xxxx

That's SUPER news about Ratchet!! I'm so happy for him and his friends who love him. He'll have the best life in Minnesota, I'm sure. Thanks for letting us know about his plight so we could help.

Ben, your new blog background looks great!! My mom is chicken about changing my page and it's the same old boring look as always. Maybe she'll be brave and change it to white some day (hee hee)

I'll have to ask Momma if I can have some money to buy some tickets. (She cut off our allowance when she lost her job) I think a picture of Tasha would be a great holiday gift for Dad.
