pibble please to wead me and help!!!

pibble pack here wiff some pibble favors i must ask our our wonderful you guys know we dont ask favors only when its of the upmost impawtance so please to help ush help thish most wonderful shelter. one of our furryends maureen shent ush this informatio and we are going to help spread the word.the following ish the info.. . . .. . . .

You may already know the story of Gunny the Pit Bull. Gunny was used as a bait dog until he was no longer of any use, dumped on the side of the road, and left to die. Fortunately, his story did not end there. Gunny was found by a good samaritan and taken to a local shelter. There he was found by Amy, a volunteer from the North Mecklenburg Animal Rescue (NMAR), on the night before he was to be euthanized.NMAR and Amy took Gunny in and saved his life. Together they took Gunny through the many grueling surgeries it would take to save his life and rehabilitate his battered body. Gunny now spends his time as an Ambassador for NMAR and Pit Bulls worldwide. He and Amy have been teaching children the cruelty of dog fighting and responsible pet ownership. Gunny has won countless accolades for his courageous and inspiring story. You can see his amazing tale of courage and the love that saved him on YouTube here:

And now, Gunny’s friends at North Mecklenburg Animal Rescue need the help of the votes of the Pit Bull and dog community. NMAR, who lost their building to a devastating flood in 2008. is currently in the running for a Pepsi Refresh Project Grant! Their project - Kennels for K-9s - is in the running to win a $50,000 grant to rebuild their facility. Winning the grant means dogs in need can be moved from the outside kennels that went up after the flood. It means NMAR can continue to do what they do best -- help save man’s best friend!They are currently in 19th place.

They only need to move into one of the Top 10 places to win one of the $50k grant!

It costs nothing more than voting one time each day.I am asking all my favorite Pitties to reach out to their fans and lets see if we can’t help Gunny’s friends build a new home! How fantastic would that be? Pitties helping pitties and other pups.

This is the Pepsi Refresh Project page for NMAR:

To learn more about North Mecklenburg Animal Rescue, you can visit their website:

If you are moved by Gunny’s story and want to thank the incredible folks who helped him on his journey, won’t you please share their story with your blog fans and ask them to help NMAR in their quest for a new home by casting a vote once a day.The voting ends April 30th. They must finish in the Top 10 to win $50,000!!

tonight i will be posting some furry much cute pics of mr gunny and some furry much pleading pictures of our pack asking for help wiff their most puppy dog eyes in hopes you'll be swayed to help ush

We will feature this on our bloggy this week!

Yesh, as you said, this is a sad day for pibbles and for all tiny animals that are crushed under the shoes of mean demons (the just can't be human beings). Our momma cried and cried and cried. We are loving her lots to help her stop crying...sigh.

Ruby and Penny said...

We voted and are going to keep going back to vote.
Gunny is such a beautiful creature. How could a human being look into those eyes and do what they did to him. Glad he will be loved for the rest of his days.
Love Ruby & Penny
Pees - we saw Tiger on TV.
