It's 2 am and the Duke just woke me from a very sound sleep. He wanted his Thundershirt NOW, please. And sure enough, we are having lightning but I couldn't hear any thunder.

Nevertheless, as a good Mom, I trudged blearily into the dog den and managed to locate his blue-with-white-stripes shirt. Managed to get it on him, just in time to hear the first crack of thunder.

Within three minutes, he was lying contentedly on the floor. Now he is asleep, with the rest of the Hooligans, while the thunder rolls and rolls.
And I am wide awake.

Lots of people entered our fundraiser drawing and we want to express our heartfelt appreciation to all of you. Because of your donations, the vet bill for Cammie/GG was paid off and we were able to reimburse one of her transport chauffeurs for the fuel she spent driving from Florence to Guntersville to Montgomery so that Cammie could hitch a ride south with a Judge. We were also able to purchase a crate for a rescue 'dale named Sensai who is being fostered in New Orleans. Over six hundred dollars was raised through YOUR generosity and through the generosity of our dear friend Linda, the Artist with the big, big heart. Linda is a real Airey-Godmother, and I know that the winner of the fundraiser, 

Susan Mayer

is going to be thrilled with her magical pet portrait that Linda has lovingly offered to do!

Congratulations Susan! You were the first one to send in your entry. May your gift return to you many times over!
