Hello everydog, I would like to bark a big THANK YOU to you all for supporting me during the auction of my painting.  I honestly didn't believe the painting would sell for more than $20, and my human Lizzy was shocked out of her seat when she saw the price went up to $100 USD ($128 Canadian).  And the winning bidders:  Toffee and Riley!  Congratulations my friends!  We've sent the painting off, you should recieve it any day now!  The very first Sparky Barky abstact original!  And tonight we are going to donate all the money, every single cent, 100%, to the RSPCA in Victoria to help the animals affected by the Australian bushfires.  Thanks again to everyone for helping us make this happen!

Also, I'd just like to add a reminder that whenever someone clicks on the google adds in the sidebar to the right, we recieve a few cents, and these cents add up to dollars and every dollar that we recieve will be donated to help more of our animal friends, whether it means sending money to help more of the Aussie animals, giving to our local dog shelters, or any other way that we might be able to help the less fortunate animals around the world.

And now...

I would like you all to meet Cookie.  She just made her own blog which you can find here.  She's a real cutie, and she looks sort of like me!  I encourage you all to go over and bark hello and welcome her to the Dogs with Blogs community!

I know I haven't posted very much lately about what I myself have been up to over the past couple of weeks...  Well, I've been busy herding the cats, training my humans, doing agility, getting a haircut, and sneaking cake from the table...  Speaking of cake, my human Lizzy just had her 16th birthday.  Now that my human blog typist and photographer is old enough to drive, do you think she could take me to the beach every day?  It's only about an hour's drive away...

Sorry this post is shorter, but I have to run now.  In my next blog post I'll be sharing my puppy pictures taken over 7 years ago!  So my friends, prepare yourself for a cuteness overload next time you drop by my blog.

I hope you all have a grrrrEAT week!  I'll leave you with a photo of myself, taken today outside... I was waiting for my human Lizzy to open the gate so I could eat the new spring flower she was holding in her hand while she took the picture.  I think flowers taste delicious.
