Yup, I know some of us can spare a $20 here, throw in people. WOC will keep it anonymous, i'm sure.


Ironically nice way of making PayPal serve a firearms enthusiast.

I am bumping this. We are halfway there. Thanks to all those who helped. You will not be forgotten by me.

I have to call Kirk again though I last talked to him on July 5th. He needs to buy a crate that fits certain criteria. I gave him the number to get those specs. He wanted me to do it for him but it was quite a list and just easier if he did it himself. I know he thinks this is all a big hassle and expense for a dog that he could just bring to the shelter and be done with it. Our conversations are strained but civil. I need just a tad more money that I could probably cover myself to get that crate and fly the dog out along with RR's $410.

The current glitch is LV is a "Pet First" airport which means they have all they need to safely care for pets before during and after flights. Neither airport in Chicago is so Toby can't fly until it's below 85 degrees here in Northern Illinois. It was in the mid 60's last week but this week has been in the upper 80's and humid. There's a guy named Phil who was another of RR's friends in LV and he's not thrilled with Kirk, either. But he's out of town for another week. When he gets home, he'll help me put the pressure on Kirk to get the lead out of his ass. I can't wait for this all to be over.

Thanks, everyone, for your support and interest. To those who donated, I won't forget you.

Winds: I don't think any of us "donated" because we want a pat on the back. I know Me & DW(Mz. Green) did it because like you we feel we need to speak for Pets because they can't..(as GATOR lays on the Tiled Kitchen Floor near me to cool off his 81 pounds of Dog-Muscle!). We Met a Woman @ the Vet today who brought in her rescued Boston(also in the Bully Breed Family) and She Heard my wife tell the receptionist briefly how Gator came to become Our DOG-Son. She was "oh I want him to meet mine" I said "ma'am..you don't want your dog to be Hospitalized here, right? Gator is not mean or Nasty,..he's just so scared of other animals he's likely to Bite your dog first!!" It's all about helping them have better lives...
BTW: outside of a minor ear infection Gator is a healthy Bulldog(Bi-Yearly check up!),,.and Gained 1.5 LBS on Weight control Food!!!!!!Tomorrow he goes back to his New Groomer.....and then Dog Toy shopping!! We also got him a "stake in the ground" today @ Wally World....he's not having it!!! He's already trying to pull it out of the Ground!!!

I've had two Boston Terriers in my past. Very fun dogs.
