Default Front page news

Victor made the FRONT PAGE of the Kansas City STar this morning. I am trying to find the link so i can share...arrrrgh the website is so frustrating. I am working on it! THe humane society just called, they said they are SOOOO excited! THey said they just about fell over and i said me too! I never ever expected him to do as well with donations as he has, i never ever expected this either. Ok back to the site, i got to find the picture you won't believe how BIG it is. WHen the photographer stopped me and asked what i was doing i told him, and i had the newsletter in my back pocket that i had received in the mail that day so i gave him that. i asked him if he wanted Vic to pose and he said no, just go on with what i was doing so we did. WE were talking with a couple at an outdoor cafe, they gave Vic some money and i was explaining how he was a stray, and about the Gabrial fund when the woman said..."that man is taking a lot of pictures of you and your dog". I said "i know he is from the Kansas City Star"> WAHOOOO it is an AWESOME picture. My mama had me buy her three papers. Ok really i will stop i gotta go find it, it has to be there on that darn link somewhere.

How could anyone say no to this face? Victor the pooch worked the streets Monday
on the Country Club Plaza, raising money for the Gabriel Fund, which helps sick and
injured animals at the Humane Society of Greater Kansas City. Victor demonstrated
considerable fundraising talents, taking in more than $40. Good dog!

I really need to stop looking at his picture.it is so pretty on line. I will have to write my thanks to the photographer and praise his skills for it is an incredible photo. THe composition is exquisite, everything is just right, even the fact that the 5 is the bill on top in his bucket! Victor has received 2 20's as well as 10s. Since the distribution of the paper is 4000, maybe he will get some mailed in donations. That would be awesome. My cheeks are getting sore i swear I haven't grinned this much in years.

He's all asleep and doesn't know a thing but i am sure when he gets to the guild. He will know something's up. I am so glad they put the words Good Dog on there, for i have posted before that those are his favorite two words. When we were at the raku fundraiser which is outside i could hear people saying Your a good dog VIctor, not just once or twice either. He loves people so much and i think i am about the luckiest girl in the world to be his gaurdian.

I love that you can see his pretty white eyelashes, i am such a sucker for pretty white eye lashes and freckles.
