Paws with a Cause - Day 7 - Meet Pippin, Merry and Waffles!!

Hello Lovelies! We have a total of 59 blogs that have gotten together to help raise money for a great cause. There are going to be some awesome prizes up for grabs for people that donate money to the cause. Here is a little about the company that we are raising the money for:

Paws With A Cause® enhances the independence and quality of life for people with disabilities nationally through custom-trained Assistance Dogs.
PAWS® increases awareness of the rights and roles of Assistance Dog teams through education and advocacy. Founded in 1979, Paws With A Cause is dedicated to helping its clients who are challenged by many disabilities, such as Cerebral Palsy, Muscular Dystrophy, Seizure Disorders, and Hearing Disorders to name just some. Each of our dogs are trained to meet the specific needs of our clients. Tasks may include opening and closing doors, picking up objects, pulling a wheelchair, turning lights on and off, and alerting a person to particular sounds like a telephone, doorbell, smoke detector and many others. Our dogs change lives by enhancing the independence of our clients. By just opening a door, a dog opens up the world for a person with a disability and your donations will go to making that happen. PAWS thanks you so much for your donation and allowing us to open more doors.

4. In the box that says "on the behalf of" please put your name. This is the name that will be listed on the everibbon website so put a name you do not mind being visible to everyone.

Now, today's feature pets belong to the fantabulous Nancy Reese! I have to admit, I adore their names: Pippin, Merry and Waffles! Read on to find out more about her wonderful pets :)

Meet Pippin, Merry and Waffles!!



All my life we have had pets. Whether cats or dogs, horses or cattle, we were all raised to value our animals as part of our family, our 'pack' if you will. Our current animals are all special in their own ways. Our great squirrel hunter is Pippin, a West Highland White Terrier. Pippin was rescued from a pet shop puppy mill. At 6 weeks of age he exhibited 'white shudder', a neurological problem in white coats dogs. This developed into skin allergies as he grew older. At 10 he now has benign skin tumors.

Merry was purchased from a breeder in Michigan, who proceeded to fly him down south as freight, in January. When we got to the freight claim office, he was a mess. Even now, 10 years later, he gets motion sickness whenever he goes anywhere longer than a 5 minute ride. Merry main joy in life is being loved. All he wants is a warm lap, a rubbed tummy and a constant supply of treats.

Waffles was discovered in the middle of the road in front of the barn where our horses live. A tiny ball of wet grey fluff, she was brought to the barn and cleaned up, but the life of a barn cat didn't interest our little princess Waffles. Now she lives in the big house, acting like a dog and only going out when the weather is perfect.

Whether horse, dog or cat, my animals are part of my family, the nucleus of our extended pack. I wouldn't trade any of them.
