Best Beanbath™ Ever


I witness so many sweet moments that's I'm not able to capture with a camera. Sometimes the camera isn't close, or if I move to get it, I know the moment will be over, or sometimes the light is just too dim.

Thankfully, this moment lingered:

Charlene was napping on the couch when Maurice made the brave decision to snuggle up next to her. He climbed to the arm of the sofa and paused to survey the scene below before stepping down to the cushion that Bean occupied.  She woke, gave him a hello trill, then proceeded to give him the bath of a lifetime. It went on for over five minutes -- four minutes of that were recorded on video.

It's kind of long, but it's sweet, so I didn't edit it down.  It's a real heart-warmer, so I encourage you to watch it all the way to the end. I promise you won't regret the time spent.

I expected a much quieter weekend, but we ended up doing REALLY WELL and raised over $16,000 for our Foster Program. I am so thrilled about this, and I can't wait to share this news with the gals in the foster room.

 Thank you for giving so generously. I'm glad you believe in the program, too, and chose to support it. Thank you to our anonymous donors who offered up some really wonderful matches for us this weekend -- they help so much because they inspire so many to give.

What a weekend!   And look at our total! We passed the $40 squillion mark, and it won't be too much longer before we're half way to our goal!

And to help make that happen, We've got another matching donation challenge from an anonymous donor. It's a really great one ---  for every dollar we give, she will give TWO until we reach the $1500 max!  So our $1500 will turn into $4500 if we're able to complete it!

Thank you, Anonymous Donor, for offering up this generous match!

The match ends at 7:00 PM Pacific Time tonight.   Please visit HERE to make your tax-deductible donation.

Thank you!

Stay close, there will be lots more to come today!
