My First Blogiversary Pawty!!



In case you don’t know what you just walked into…this is my First Blogiversary Pawty…I have not missed one post for one single day for 365 days as of yesterday…so LET’S CELEBRATE!!

First order of business in my book is a great big humongous…

thank you

Without all of you…I would not have continued to write, interact, research topics about animal rescue; nor would I have become involved in our paw social media groups that always find ways to rescue more and more furriends around the world…I am so humbled to be part of this community…

savvys humble message

However..I have been a bit stressed that maybe NO ONE will come to my FIRST BLOGIVERSARY PAWTY!!

savvy looking for guests

First and foremost…let’s get right to the impawtant GIVE AWAYS…I entered everyone’s names into…so all this is RANDOM!!


Well, as I “am” a “cat”…you can imagine that the contest was fierce over those cat stones…but…you are NEVER, EVER GONNA BELIEVE WHO WON THEM..

…go on GUESS???….GUESS???…WHO???



Easy Rider

…don’t ask me…ya gotta talk to Easy as to why this manly mandog wanted those kitty hand painted stones…but they are his!!

Now, for the Woofie Stones…WHO??? WHO???…


Scylla, Socks, Fenris and Tuiren…and yes…Mr Who

Alasandra, The Cats and Dogs


…ummm…my apologies to Miss Alasandra…I could not find a photo on your bloggy with EFURRYBODY except this one…shuffles paws back and forth…hope this is OK???purrrrs…Concatulations!!!

Now come on over and Pawty, Pawty, Pawty…

Easy comes to the pawty

…ahem…koff, koff…Ok…we kind’a got off to a rough start…some furriends had a teeny problem in transport…but here is what you can all look forward to…

and of course I have all the noms and beverages you can pawsibly desire…heh…heh…

Lastly…I am once again so humbled by the generosity of this Paw Community…you are so gracious and caring…and kind…PURRlease allow me to share a few Special First Blogiversary Cards sent by such kind and thoughtful furriends…thank you all…

..from Nellie…
