Simpatico: DWM Quilt Raffle

DWM Quilt Raffle

WHN and the wonderful Doxies with Moxie emailed me a month ago regarding their quilt raffle, and it got lost in my emails so I forgot to post it when they asked me to (two days ago).  PLEASE PLEASE FEEL FREE to COPY and PASTE this information on one of your Blog Posts. We really hope they can raise enough to cover the adoption fee and to help the rescue group. Once you finish reading the letter from the Dachshies With Moxie...... please... CLICK HERE to find out MUCH more.

Dear Blogville,

We the Dachsies With Moxie (Chip and Tasha) have a wonderful announcement!  Yes, you guessed- WHN and Dad have failed yet again at being foster parents and we wish to welcome His Snoopyness into the DWM pack officially!

Snoopy has thrived under Chip's tutelage and has warmed Tasha's heart, and has become Dad's BDF (Best Dachshund Furever).  He protects WHN while Dad is at work and keeps us on our toes.  He is very protective of his pack and his home, and does NOT like other peeps very much.  (He is NOT a biter but a very persistent barker)  The mail man fears him as does the UPS man.  Squirrels shudder as he passes by.  This is probably due to his background and we are working very hard at changing that for him and it will take a great deal of time.  He is currently enrolled in the beginner training class at PetSmart but he already knows that he has to repeat it- his anxiety is such that he barks the entire class and heeds the pawrents, but not the teacher. He is making great improvements that are easily seen each week, but his anxiety is such that he gets spooked too easily by shadows and off he goes on a barking tear.  At night, he and Chip sleep together in the Big Bed, guarding WHN from all enemies foreign and domestic, and he takes his duties at Dachshund Security, LLC seriously.  His allergies are under control, but all we need to find now is a training treat that will not make him sick to his stomach or cause an allergic reaction.

As Blogville is aware, we had to leave our home in Ohio and move to St Louis when Dad was hired by the MetroLink rail system.  While we have lived here for almost six months, the house in Ohio remains unsold, and we are paying rent and utilities here in Missouri and the mortgage and utiities in Ohio.  As such, WHN and Dad are having trouble coming up with the 275.00 needed for Snoopy's adoption fees and we are asking Blogville for help.

WHN is going to sponsor a raffle for an original Frankie Furter quilt, 45 x 45 inches in size, colors of your choosing and of course with a portrait of the winning Blogville resident on it.  Tickets will be 2.00 a piece, or six for ten dollars, via PayPal or the Chipin on the blog.  IF you prefer to send check, money order or cash, please email WHN at DachsiesWithMoxieMama AT gmail DOT com with the relevant info.

The raffle will run from March 1st through March 15th, with our beloved former Mayor, Frankie Furter Price, drawing the winner's name on the 17th of March.  The quilt will be sent to the winner by the end of April.  

IF the raffle raises more money than is needed to pay Snoopy's adoption fees, the remaining funds will be donated to DRNA, Dachshund Rescue of North America.  DRNA has been a source of great joy in our lives- Ginger, Chip, Thai, Tasha and Snoopy have all come into our lives from this rescue, and we know that we are the rescuees, not the dachshunds.
