June Toy Drive Is A GO!!!

June Toy Drive Is A GO!!!
At lunch today I stopped by The Plush Pad to set up our June toy drive benefitting the Town Lake Animal Shelter. To the left is a picture of our sign explaining what the bins are for. You will notice I added some things ~ nothing too crazy though! Just some spots to the dog and updated it with our NEW WEBSITE INFO! [Yay!] If you are in the Austin, Tx area please stop by and donate. Say hi to my new pals Doug & Louis [brothers!] while you are there! And as always, if you would like to contribute but are not in the Austin area [or are unable to make it to The Plush Pad] please contact me and I will be more than happy to work with you!

I Learned Something Today…

That Tootsie really really likes the water. My hubby was trying to water the backyard but I think more of the water got on Tootsie than the grass… was so much fun to watch! Not quite as much fun to clean up the mess she left on the floors afterwards. Totally worth it though!

Our Be The Change Post

At BlogPaws in April 2010 some of our Twitter friends, including @frugaldougal, introduced a simple but profound idea to everyone: Be The Change. The heart of the movement is about being the change that you want to see in the world. Even though Ghandi may have spoken these words first, he did not have the benefit of Twitter and Facebook to spread his message as far & wide as Frugal Dougal and his staff have. The idea is that “the change” doesn’t have to involve spending money or be something earth shattering ~ it could be something as small as volunteering for a day at your local animal shelter, writing a blog post like this one to help spread the word, or donating old toys your dog doesn’t play with anymore. Anything you do to make the world a better place helps, and if we all join in then together we can make a big difference ~ even a little dog like Teeny can be a part of the solution.
We weren’t lucky enough to make it to BlogPaws in April [we were about to start moving into our new home so a trip wasn’t in the cards] but the Be The Change movement swept Twitter so we certainly heard all about it and thought it was wonderful to see how many people were inspired by such a simple concept. I thought long and hard about what I could do to continue the momentum, and I think I found a way.
I have talked about PawPawties before [Teeny regularly DJs and PawPawty was our animal organization for the month of May] but this month I think I have found a way for us to be even more involved. The beneficiary is A Chance For Bliss and for every $10 raised, we will donate one toy. If PawPawty raises $500 we will donate 50 toys ~ if PawPawty raises $1000 we will donate 100 toys. And so on! If you are new to PawPawty, click here to visit their website for details on how to participate, donate, etc.
In the meantime, help us spread the word and think of ways that you can help to BE THE CHANGE!

Twitter Feed Temporarily Down

Update: Twitter feed seems to be back up and running!
Hey all! Just wanted to let you know that I am 100% aware that the Twitter feed is down. There is a very good reason for this… we just bought the www.teenysfriends.com domain! Over the next day or two, Blogger is going to be very busy switching things over. The www.teenysfriends.blogspot.com address will be re-directed over to the new domain. Once things are complete, the Twitter feed should work again. If not.. hmmm… we’ll cross that bridge when we get there. But I’m warning you, I’m very good at eye-rolling and writing strongly worded notes. Yup, I’m pretty cool.

The Anipal Academy Awards Are Coming!

Teeny’s note 5/7/10 – I wanted to take a minute and assure ewe all dat I am, in fact, a boy doggie. I fink I had a bit too much fun as TeeNA at da Chickfest PawPawty last month and I decided to wear a beeaautiful ball gown to da Anipal Awards instead of a stuffy unconfortable tuxedo. Maybe I am a girl doggie born in a boy doggies body?
Some clever anipals put their heads together and came up with the idea to hold the first annual Anipal Academy Awards! These awards are a great way for the online animal community to honor each other. Each and every one of us brings something unique to the table and we’re excited to get the chance to reconize our friends and their special talents!
Voting begins May 7th and the awards ceremony will be in July. We are running around looking for the perfect dress to wear to the ceremony and after party! We’ve narrowed it down to 5 beautiful gowns and can’t decide which to wear, so we are hoping that YOU GUYS could decide for us! Some are naughty and some are nice. Please vote in the poll to the right and let us know what look we should go for!
