The uncertainty of cancer treatments can take a toll on the soul.  Got together with some friends to make these bouquets for ladies undergoing treatment.

Made for you with love!  Next month?  Bouquets for all!

This Week’s Extreme Dog Treats!

Hi!  Roscoe, Monty and Henry here with a guest blog post.  What’s in the treat bin this week?

Tail Bangers!  Yummmy!

And yes those are duck heads with eyeballs and a few feathers.

And Paw Benders from Good Times!

A portion of every sale is donated to canine charities.

And Mom got herself these chips.   Poor poor Mom, no fun treat for her.

Extreme dog treats for extremely cute boy dogs!

This Week’s Extreme Dog Treats!

Hi!  Roscoe, Monty and Henry here with a guest blog post.  What’s in the treat bin this week?

Yup those are freeze dried pig snouts.  How do they taste?  Don’t know yet…  Mom is kind of dragging her feet because she said they are kind of gross.  There are little nose hairs on them!

A good standby.  Dried dish skins, they stink so good.

And especially for Roscoe because he hates the fireworks two boxes of calming aid.

These are roasted chicken flavor and when mom opened one of the packages it smelled soooooo good!

We told mom we were all scared but she knew we just wanted a “lick”!

Donating Platelets and Plasma

 

Platelets only last for five days.  The need for donors is high.  Plasma can be collected at the same time as platelets.

These blood components are used to treat accident victims, organ and marrow transplant recipients, cancer and heart surgery patients and those with blood-related diseases like sickle cell anemia.

What can you do while you are hooked up to the machine?  I always watch a movie.  This time I watched Hugh Jackman in The Greatest Showman.  No long lines, no talking audience, no rustling treat bags, no slurping, and no big ticket price.

And best of all a warm blanket!

Delivered! 100 Pots for Cancer Survivors.

What an amazing event!  Each survivor got a pin describing the length of their journey, here is my pin celebrating one year!

The students from Saints Peter and Paul Catholic School helped by decorating 99 pots for cancer survivors.  Each pot was signed by the child and also adorned with a live peace lily plant.

The pots sure made for festive table decorations and treasured favors for each cancer survivor to take home to remember the celebration.

Not a pot was left at the end of the day.  But wait, for those of you who can count I said 99 pots were decorated by the students.  What is the mystery surrounding the 100th pot?

No mystery, as the organizer of getting the pots painted I actually did one pot as a sample so we would have a dry one for the kids to pass around and look at.

I went on a hunt for my pot and was going to try to take MY POT home with me.  When I found the pot this lovely gentlemen was not going to give it up, not even in trade for a different pot!

I was happy to meet the recipient of my pot and get a picture taken with him.  He was happy to meet the artist who painted his pot.  We also shared a huge hug.
