An opportunity to raise awareness

First of all, I must take the time to say thank you to everyone who commented either on my blog or on Wilma’s regarding my Words of Wisdom guest post.  Your kindness and support are so much appreciated.  And of course, a huge shout-out to Wilma herself for allowing me to share more of my story!

As many of you know, the primary reason my mom and I started my blog was to spread the word about Pug Dog Encephalitis.  Just recently, I met a malamute named Rumpy.   

This is Rumpy!
Ok, isn’t that an awesome name?  Anyway, he has a blog aptly titled RumpyDog, and the primary point of his blog is to give animals of all shapes and sizes a place to share their experiences in hope that someone out there will get the information they need.  Rumpy’s family was helped in a similar fashion and they just want to pay it forward.  How great is that!?!  So that’s why I come into the picture.  Rumpy asked me if I’d like to write a short post about PDE, and of course, I jumped at the chance!  Thanks Rumpy!!  In addition to guest posts, there are regular columns, animal interviews, and poetry contests (Noodles and Tweedles, you both would be so good at those!).  Check it out sometime…like today, since you’ll get to see me there!

Dear PaytonPuggy, thank you for sharing your story, mommy said the neurology doctors that took care of my sissy Winnie said they do not have enough stories to learn about PDE and they need many more so someday they can cure this awful disease. Thank you also for your kind words and support on my blog for the fact that all the peeps who wanted to take photos with me did not offer me food. I was just noticing you had some McCheesy Pounders the other day. Mommy has never given me one of thems. *steam comes out of Annie's ears and she looks pointedly at her mama* We will haft to remedy that! *blows Payton kissies*
love, AnnieBeeBelly
