Blogathon 2011 is Here!

Third Annual Pawcurious Blogathon

Twenty-Four Hour Long Fundraiser for Animals in Need

2:00 pm Saturday, November 12 – 1:00 pm Sunday, November 13 Central Time

on Many Fine Blogs Near You

Elizabeth from Nebraska Humane Society: “What should our goal be for Blogathon 2011?”

me: “Five million dollars and every pet in the world, present and future, in a loving home forever.”

Debbie of Fearful Dogs: “You need to start dreaming bigger.”

And so it begins.  Mind you these goals were set today.  Dr. V of Pawcurious is the mastermind behind Blogathon and works long and hard behind the scenes every year to make this a success.  At least, I assume she does more prep work than I do.  Even so, today we were working on a Zombie Giraffe that we both just assumed would fit into Blogathon somewhere…

And, see?  It does! If you ask Dr. V or me to draw you ANYTHING, we will, for a donation to any participating Blogathon cause. Oh, who am I kidding?  Dr. V said “zombie giraffe” and the next minute I was at the art store shopping for drawing paper and grey Sharpies.  I will draw you anything you want just for fun.  What would you like??

Dr. V is blogging to raise money for a great San Diego wildlife sanctuary, Lions, Tigers and Bears.  Also, apparently in San Diego this weekend, there might be zombies.  I am blogging with a WONDERFUL group to raise money for Nebraska Humane Society.  More info to follow!  Every hour for twenty-four hours starting tomorrow at 2:00 pm in fact.

    Hi Shawn!

    I’m sorry that I wasn’t able to participate. in Blogathon this year but a friend asked me to care for her animals while she is out of town and I don’t have a laptop so don’t have access to a computer while I’m at her place. Thus, no hourly posts! I do think Blogathon is a wonderful idea and look forward to participating in the future.

    That being said: Where are YOUR hourly posts???


  3. Hi Dr. Kay! That is ok! My hourly posts will be here at Riley and James! So when you do have a computer, come say hi! :D
