I don't mean to offend. It's probably going to happen anyway.

Puppy Love

I had a bitter rant that was supposed to go here, but this seems like a rather happier thing.

Most of you have probably heard from Tam or Atomic Nerds or some other party, but the Nerds have a bit of a conundrum. They breed Akitas, and one of the recent litter has a bit of a medical whoopsie to deal with.

Having three giant akitas to deal with already, the Nerds are not able to give Major the home she deserves. As such, they have been trying to find a willing, good home.

Enter Farmgirl. Having met her, I can attest to just how much she cares about her creatures. She's all gung ho to get a new critter into the house, especially one she can help with the medical upsets. However, while the enthusiasm is there, the money is not. Surgery, medicines, and transportation costs are going to cost a decent chunk of change.

Given that this is the internet, a place where I constantly wonder whether the altruism or perversion is more amazing, Farmgirl has set up a YouCaring drive to help fund this critter. I know there are a number of you out there who are always willing to help if you can, and this is a perfect way. I don't know of anyone who thinks that giving a sick puppy a good home is not a good cause.

I know times are hard and funds are tight, but if you've got a few bucks to spare, anything helps. Go here to donate.

If you can't put down the money right now, at least spread the word a little. If ten thousand people each donated a dollar, yadda yadda.

I am always stunned and humbled by the generosity and kindness of this community. Let's show it again for a good cause!
