Once again Blogger on my phone is acting crazy... so you'll get my Tuesday post on Monday night... cause I'm tired of writing it only to see it disappear when I hit "save". Perhaps tomorrow I'll try a post without pictures or anything "special" to see if I can get it to save and post appropriately.
Ok, to the real reason for my post. Newby, Milo and Dixie saved their green papers and bought me a great necklace from Ms. Laura and Animal Rescue & Activism by Crafting4Cause on Etsy.
It's handmade, has a special color bead for each of my babies, and it goes to help other animals in need. It was only $20 delivered.
I absolutely love it. The sentiment of "Love Little Legs" is something we all appreciate and share... but coupled with the dachshund charm and my babies' colors just makes it even more special to my heart.
I found the shop because a friend had posted it on Facebook.. a delightful find IMHO. I love buying things from Etsy, and helping the small businesses. Especially if they offer dachshund things :)
Check them out... and all the other shops on Etsy.
***Update.. I received a great little note from the shop after I wrote thanking her for the necklace and telling her I blogged about it. Here is her response:
Thanks for the sweet message! I'm so glad you love your necklace and that it has special meaning for you!!!! That makes my day! :D
Normally I try to donate to specifically to non-profit organizations that offer free and low cost spay/neuter (since fewer animals means less will need rescue!), but since I've had quite a few people wanting this particular necklace it seemed more fitting that I send some donation money to a dachshund rescue organization. So I recently sent a nice sum to Dachshund Rescue of North America. But oftentimes I do send money to Dena Delgado who runs Dachshund Rescue in Southern California. Dena is good friends with the woman who runs the rescue I volunteer with so I'm very familar with their work and I've met and spoken with Dena quite a few times. It's a really great organization that really focuses on unwanted senior dachshunds and those needing medical care. I'm so thankful that I have an opportunity to donate to these great organizations! So thank you for helping me do this!!!
That's so neat that you mentioned your necklace on your blog!!!
Again, thank you for your message! ❤ Laura
