We had a different post in mind for today, but somehow it just doesn't seem appropriate after the terrible news we heard.
Today we are thinking very sadly about our friends at The Pittie Pack. You have probably read on some of the other blogs how there was a devastating fire in their home early today. Thankfully the humans all escaped the fire safely, but five of their seven dogs died, including sweet Shelby who won all our hearts a few years ago as she fought to save her own life and her pups.
The loss of the life of each of these cherished pets is just too sad for words. Our hearts are very heavy and we send our deepest sympathy to the family and the two surviving pups. We cannot imagine the sorrow they must be feeling. The family has lost everything. We know there is a move underway for donations to be made from Blogville. We will share the information when we know more. If you can spare a few dollars, we know it is going to be put to very good use. We know times are tough for so many these days, but even if you can't contribute any money, please stop by their blog and leave them some comforting words. Kissa-Bull, The Pittie Pack.
When one of us is hurting this badly, we ALL hurt - sadly this is very true right now.
