Happie Blankies – how we are leading a more purposeful life

Mama and I volunteer with a local dog Rescue, and there are always  big medical bills  for our dogs.   Their teeth fall out because they haven’t had dental care, they have heart murmurs…the list goes on and on.  One of the ladies in our group decided to make fleece dog blankets in honor of Happie, her beloved rescue who has crossed the Bridge, as a fund raiser.  She calls the blankets Happie Blankies.  Some of the fleece patterns have Scotties on them, and that’s how Mama and I became in charge of Happie Blankie Sales, Scottie Division.  But there are other cute patterns, and we have friends who have other breeds  of dogs, so we are what Mama calls equal opportunity Blankie sellers!  You can see me modeling my Blankie, and here are some of the other patterns we have on hand.

      Hey Guys! Some of our volunteers make them. We are in charge of positioning them, selling them, a d shipping them. Right now, we have shipped blankets to 8 States (including Alaska !). We are especially proud of that one. We have only 42 States left to go…..Mama and I have goals. Mama gets misty when our customers send photos of their dog (s) enjoying their blankets…oppsie, Mama just called me. We have to go to the Post Office…..shipping to Kentucky!

    When we adopted Kenzie from Sheltie Rescue, she came a blanket like with one of these blankets. I think it is a nice thing to do for critters.
