We're On Team Shelby!

Please join us in supporting sweet Shelby

A few weeks ago, a young female pit bull was found abandoned in a parking lot. She was badly injured, most likely from being used in dog fighting. Despite her horrific injuries and the mistreatment she'd received from human beings, when rescued, the little dog wagged her tail in gratitude.

No one could bear the thought of turning her over to be euthanized. Instead she was taken to a vet...again and again. The bills were mounting for the little dog named Shelby.

Thanks to love and dedication, Shelby has improved, but still is in need of additional veterinary care. There's a long road ahead. Please visit Mona and her mom's blog for information on how you can help this sweet little girl.

Meanwhile, many of you asked about the other entries to the Six Word Story Contest. Which came first, the story or the picture? First came selection of the winner, then we searched far and wide for the perfect photo. I do believe we found it!

If you'd like to read the other entries, check out the comment section of the Contest Announcement post. Congrats again to the winner, Jenny, and thanks to all the entrants.

Contests are fun. We'll plan another one soon!

We're pulling for Shelby too. What a horrible thing for anyone to do to a pooch. Wouldn't it be great if all such monsters were caught and put in jail?

Hi Pat,
Have I told you that my Mother in law's name is Pat. It is and I have a coon named Pat. Well she is not mine she just comes to dinner everynight!! She knows her name and is very appreciative for her dinner. I am trying to get pictures of her babies. Every time I point the camrea at them, they run.
I have been to the web site where Shelby is and thanked them so much for all they are doing for her. I love the animals so much I would try to save them ALL!!! I sometimes cry for the unsaved!! That is very sweet that you blogged about Shelby. Thank you!!
Praise the Lord for glasses!!
Hugs, Fern

Deborah said...

OH, I thought she sent in the picture too! It's a great match and your right, the story can go on and on. My daughter & I enjoyed this. She loves to write and we have had a lot of fun asking our friends for their six word story. It is quite the conversation piece!
Have a nice weekend!
