Very Special Mail

Guess what special thing came in the mail?
I'll give you three clues:

1. It has to do with the colour pink.
2. It commemorates a beautifur dog who crossed the Rainbow Bridge.
3. It raises awareness fur a furry impawtant cause.

Did you guess ANGEL GRETA PIN? Well that is what came, and it is pawsome! Mabel, Hazel and Bailey's mom from Idaho Pugranch sent it.

Beautifur Angel Greta

Most of you must already know this, but I didn't, so I want to explain. Mabel, Baile and Hazel's mom is furry special, brave and strong because  she went through the challenges of breast cancer. She was also furry fortunate because she survived. To raise awareness and at the same time to commemorate Angel Greta, Idaho Pugranch mom sends out these wonderfur pins that have a picture of Angel Greta on them.

On the pin, Angel Greta  wears a pink breast cancer ribbon around her neck and on the card she is dressed in a lovely pink harness. It matches her pink tongue.

I never knew Angel Greta but I wish I had. She looks like the kind of dog that all of Blogville would want fur a furend.

You can read about how to request a pain and about Angel Greta's life here:

 How I Became Mom's "Pink" Dog

This is the last week for the pins, so if you want one you should ask now!

Mimi was planning to put ours on my jacket but she thinks it looks so pretty on the card that she is keeping it together for awhile.

On the card it says:
"Thank you for supporting Breast Cancer Awareness. Love, Angel Greta"


"When you choose hope, anything is possible."

So thank you to the Idaho Pugranch fur this wonderfur mail!
