The Dad Peep and I have been busy. Very busy. Wallowing in grief only goes but so far. So, we decided it was time to do something else.
We’ve established a fund at the Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine where there are trials going on right now – with Scotties even – to determine the origins of hemangiosarcoma cells.
We don’t want dogs and their peeps to suffer as we did. I’m not saying a cure – let alone a test or treatment – is coming next week, but we’ve all got to start somewhere.
Research in Stuart’s name seemed appropriate.
In that spirit – and you know how spirited and sporty Stuart was – we’ve also launched an immediate fundraising campaign through Bonfire Funds.
Our goal is to sell 300 shirts from now through October 12. International shipping is available so get out there and buy a shirt or a hoodie. Or share the news with your shirt and Scottie loving friends.
Visit the Stuart’s Fund website and Facebook page to learn more. (Like I said, we’ve been busy.)
Thank you Lynn Spencer. The T-shirt campaign hadn’t been live for more than 3 or 4 minutes when I received notice that the first shirt had been sold. It was Lynn at Rocky Creek Scotties.
Stuart made that happen, too. Bless him. And Bless Lynn.
And thanks to you all for being a part of this journey along with me and the Dad Peep. We appreciate it more than you can ever know.
Aww…now I’m crying….
Come on folks, buy a shirt – it’s for a great cause. Loosing a Scottie or any dog to cancer is devastating. I know from first hand experience.
Thank you, Lynn. You’re a terrierific pace setter!
Done! Loved reading about Stuart..will love wearing his shirt!!
ArrOOO to you, Linda. Thank you!
I want to encourage as many of you reading this blog to purchase a shirt in this fund raiser. We are scottie lovers an two of our wee scotties passed over to the rainbow bridge due to cancer.
Very sad indeed and this will be helpful to all dogs perhaps even people, who knows? I will wear the shirt i purchased in hopes of a cure and will probably look very snazzy with Stuart on it too!
Thank you, thank you, thank you Elizabeth!
What a wonderful idea to start ‘Stuart’s Fund’. I hope it is a smashing success and that EVERYBODY will say NO to this terrible disease and buy a shirt! As I proudly wear it, it will be a good opportunity to educate people who will surely ask, “Tell me, please, just what is hemangio?”
McDuff & Mom
Yes! And you can learn more about hemangio at http://www.stuartsfund.com!!! Thank you, thank you, my wonderful friends.
Shirt ordered! Glad to help with this cause and excited about getting a shirt with Stuart’s picture, including info on the cause! I hope the goal of 300 shirts sold by October 12 is surpassed!
Thank you so very much my friend.
Wow! You have indeed been VERY busy. I just know you will sell more than 300! ❤
Fingers crossed dear one!
Great way to remember Stuart.
Thank you so much.
Banks insists that we all have a shirt to honor all those who have crossed the rainbow bridge!
That Banks is one heck of a guy. And so are you guys!!! AROOOO! Thank you so much.
What an awesome cause my friend!! We will be back before it expires. XOXO – Bacon
Bacon, you’re the best. Houdini, too. And the peeps of course. Thank you pals!
You are so welcomed! It’s a worthy cause and we are always here to help out our fellow anipals – always ❤ XOXO – Bacon, Houdini, Hemi and the peeps
The peeps are getting some. How come there are NO PARROT SIZES??????
How could this be???? Gotta fix that. Tell your peeps how very much we appreciate their support.
Done… ordered! and pasted it on my Facebook page to the public xxoo Ozzy & Callie’s Mommy
PAWSOME!! So many thanks from me to you! ArrrOOOO!
I’m sorry, I’m a few days behind! But, I just ordered a tee-shirt and made a small donation. Splenic hemangiosarcoma took my Sweet Mac in February and I want to do what I can to get rid of this evil disease! I’m grateful to honor his memory at the same time we honor Sweet Stuart’s memory. Love to you all for helping make this happen! ❤️💔❤️
So, so, so very sorry about Mac. You know the heartache. Here’s to Mac! Thank you, thank you. The Peepstress
OH! We need to go find our debit card – we’d be honored to wear such a fine shirt!
Just had a thought! I bet you could sell even more if you had these printed as doggie shirts! Edgar would wear one for sure!
YOU are on the same page…I thought of that, too. You’re so smart. I’ll have to work on that.
THANK YOU!!!! There are only 2 weeks and a few days to get yours! And, congratulations on your beautiful marriage Edgar’s Mum. The photos are pawsome. For some reason, I couldn’t comment, but you and your husband are stunning and so happy!!!!! Condogulations from the Peepstress and the Dad Peep!
You are too kind, Nan! I tried and tried to think of a way to have Edgar at the ceremony, but I don’t think he would have appreciated all of the hullabaloo, so he visited some friends for the weekend.
I must not forget the deadline!!
We wish you the best from our house to yours. And thank you for your support! Limited edition T’s available for sale through Midnight, October 12th! We’re almost at the halfway point toward goal! Yaaay!
OH….I hope you got my reply to this nice note!!!
