That's the first I've heard of this. From an objective viewpoint, I don't think this would have much impact except if advertisers are counting the # of "page views" their ads appear on for compensation to ICHC. If you come across that "boycott" LOL, shoot the link to me & AoD; she hadn't seen it either.

I just found out that our animal shelter here in Idaho is NO KILL! YAY! https://www.facebook.com/panhandle.animalshelter .... it says on their about... "We are a non-profit, no kill animal shelter in North Idaho. Please be our friend and help support the animals!"

Sure. It's fine with me. I know these are hard to fav to our sites under the current tech of cheezland. I have to fav and save to sites from the feeds, cause saving directly from the LOL, it won't save it, even though it indicates that it did. Did that make sense? Someone else here is having the same problem with saving to their favs and sites.

Thanks, Venus!!! I appreciate all the kindly words & thoughts!!! When I did the "downfumming" LOL I was really thinking that it applies to *all* of us that do good works and someone comes along & does..... *THAT*. So, this is *my* vote of support for *all* of us that suffer others' malign clicking.

Oh, Deb. You make me sound too great. I've told a couple of friends that I have a "hinky" gene, the I should have had fur gene. I never paid for any of my fur friends either. They just seemed to find me (with a lot of help from some undeserving original owner hoomins). My Grandmother is the cause of my "affliction". She never turned down anything that was hungry or looked lost. Somewhere she's probably clapping her hands in glee! Friends on here have been so great to help defray the costs. I didn't have that much in reserve to send right now, but they came through for the kitties. NCcharmer coordinated things with the rescue group and shelter. I appreciate her help so much, and MessiahMews alerted us to the situation. They are great people with big, big hearts. I was fortunate to inherit the homeplace from my family, or I would not be able to do any of the things I do. I'll keep everybody posted on what happens. (Don't be angry with your sister, please.) Love ya, Linda

I wasn't expecting that from Jeannie either but it sure was effective. It was very unlike her. She's such a gentle soul. She'll swallow you up with her eyes and let you stroke her head and ears for as long as you're willing. She has an amazing on/off switch. As soon as I load her into the back seat at my friend's place she goes to sleep. She's out by the time I get around to the driver's seat. When you roll up on your destination she's good to go again. I'm glad you wandered through the pictures and the videos. I love taking photos and want other people to enjoy them. I love it when the mods put one of Becky's pics in the LOL builder as I'm always interested to see what kind of LOLs folks make with them. The team video came out of an event we had over 4th of July in 2011. It was a huge Waterblol fight. Basically, half a dozen teams formed to create water themed LOLs. Ultimately it devolved into teams good naturedly attacking the other teams. It lasted about five days and tons of creative LOLs were made. I wanted to honor all the teams that competed so I took a sampling of each team's LOLs and put some theme music that matched the team and created a video for everyone to enjoy. Are you friends with 1teamkso yet? It's a site that Pusskitty, Sylviag and Betskand run. They organize many of the fun themed events around here. Kamp Kuppycakes and Kuppycakes Prep School being the most prolific. Here's the link if you want to go through the favorites from the Waterblol event. http://profile.cheezburger.com/1TeamKSO/collection/2920464/waterblol-fite-2011 I'm glad that Miss Jeannie was able to put a smile on your face. She's very good at that.

We pretty much have the same rule as landlords go. He let us have this one, but he said if this cat goes, we can't have another. He said he's allergic, and I was like ... "what's that got to do with it?" as it will be US in here, not him. I also think that's partially why so many nice animals end up in shelters, because of mean landlords not allowing pets in their rentals. Cats are not that bad, because they don't leave a smell behind. Our landlord would have allowed dogs, but not cats. I said, if there had been a dog in here, that I couldn't stay because of the 'dog smell' they often leave behind. We turned down a nice place because it stunk. Dogs HAVE to have their anal glands drained to get that smell off of them. But cats can always have SOFT PAWS put on them to prevent scratching up stuff, and can also be bathed, and just vacuum up the hair. I want to help pay for rescues and towards adoption fees to save animals too. I won't be able to foster cats because of the landlord. He lives above us, so he's too close to us. I wish we could afford a home of our own, so we can do what we want. There are some other cats there, I want to save, plus there is a beautiful Himalayan female at the Manhattan Center in NYC that I want to save, but dunno if she has enough time or not. There is NOTHING wrong with her, and I would take her for myself, if I was there. I live in ID, so all these places are too far for me.

Yeah, there are times when you see how people treat their pets and you just shake your head and walk away because you disagree with how they treat them. Then there are other times when their actions are so egregious that you have to step in like you did with Millie just to protect her. Her life is so much better since you made that choice. It would be tough to think what life would have been like for her otherwise. That's so funny that you checked out my videos. Given our conversations I thought you would enjoy seeing the Becky and Daisy video and had gone so far as to copy the link so I could include it in my next note. I was kind of embarrassed to be one of those who plays "hey, look how wonderful my dog is" but you had already watched it and saved me from myself. I'm glad you enjoyed it. If a person can't smile after watching two sweet dogs playing like that then they really have a lot going on in their lives. I chuckled when you mentioned how smart you thought Becky was for puzzling out those treats. I mention in my profile that I take a friend's service dog for an afternoon once a week so she just gets some time to be a dog. Her name is Jeannie. Before I mounted that puzzle on a board I tried it out with the girls. Jeannie watched Becky go through her gyrations to free those treats and patiently waited for her turn. I couldn't wait to see how she worked through it because she's amazingly smart. After Becky was done I set it up again with fresh treats, had Jeannie sit and then released her to work her magic. She reached down and grabbed the edge of the puzzle in her mouth and casually tossed it a few feet and watched the treats come tumbling out. Then she walked over and ate them off the floor. I'm telling you the girl has skills.
