Winnie and Daisy: Calendar Girls for Rescue

I received some wonderful news last week. Winnie Wiggles, my jiggley angel who went to the rainbow bridge in January 2008, is going to be one of the pugs featured on the SEPRA pug rescue annual calendar. The voting was tabulated over a few months, with each vote costing $1. Each dollar went to SEPRA pug rescue to help this outstanding rescue organization find furever homes for the little ones they save. I was also delighted to see that little Duchess Daisy from Polk County, Georgia, is also going to be featured. She was a SEPRA rescue and now lives in the lap of luxury with her loving furever family. We were so happy to see that this beautiful little pug lady will be in the calendar with Wiggles.

There is not a day or an hour that goes by that I do not think of Winnie, because she had such a big impact on my life. She was my little velcro pug and rarely left my side in the 3 years I was her mom. I am so thankful for the short time she was with me. I always felt just a little bit like I was in the presence of greatness when I was near Winnie. She was an old soul in a little round body, and so full of love and personality. I sure miss you Wiggles.

Dozer and Coop, you are some bad doggies. Howie is very proud of you! I hope your mom had some aromatic wipes to clean you up after your dumpster diving!
Melissa, they haven't posted how to order the calendars yet. I will keep checking back and let you know when I find out.

A great honor for Winnie! I'm sure you think about her everyday. I lost two of my dogs within five weeks of each other and I still miss them a ton. This is a wonderful tribute to her!
