Mr. Tater...

So... yesterday was a very sad day for my momma.  You see... mom used to ride horses all the time and I know I introduced you to Kahlua last year, who is mom's favoritest horse ever.  And when Kahlua got hurt and couldn't be riden anymore, mom kind of slacked off in the riding department, but still remained close with the horses owned by her friend Tamara.  Although these horses are in no way my mom's horses, she loves them just the same.
Well, yesterday... Mr. Tater had to make his trip to the rainbow bridge... Tater was only 8 but had many years of colic issues and yesterday the colic monster wouldn't give up. 
Mr. Tater was a retired racehorse and his dad was the famous Tiznow.  He was loved by all who knew him and will be greatly missed.  Run free in heaven, Mr. Tater.  My mom loves you.

Also, I'd like to highlight a few things some of my furiends are doing for their communties....

It's my dear furiend, Roo's, birthday!  He's going to donate $0.50 for every comment left on his blog for his birthday to the shelter he came from, The Humane Society of Sarasota County!  Today is the last day - sorry I didn't make it in time to tell you yesterday, when he raised $32!  So, swing over to Roo and wish him a Happy Birthday/Gotcha Day!!!
Happy Birthday Buddy!!!!!

My furiend Mayzie is honoring her Grampa J by hosting an "Adopt Me" week!  She will be giving away $100 to the rescue of choice for FIVE of her furiends!  Go over to her blog and check out all of the details.  We sure can't wait to take part in this one!
A wonderful and generous thing, Mayzie!!!

And, last, but most certainly not least... LEVI!  You see, my furiend Levi is a foster dog living with my furiends Mr. B and Ms. M from Two Pitties in the City.  Levi was raised by Superhero's and just recently found out that he has a congential eye condition that will effect his vision in the near future if it's not corrected.  So, Two Pitties in the City are raising money for Levi's surgery by having a bunch of great stuff up for raffle and a great t-shirt to show your support!  Go check them out and do what you can to help Levi!!!
We support you, Levi!!!
