Lily Belle's Auction hosted by Dachsies with Moxie

Hi friends!
Long time, no post. Mama has been busy subbing. Also, we had new carpet installed and will soon have new hardwood and laminate installed. Our house is having these renovations done after 35+ years of the same old shaggy, brown, ucky-mucky carpet...and in the bathrooms no less...horrors of horrors.

Anywho...we break our blogging breaks when something of importance goes on in  Blogville and Lily Belle's Auction is definently important and needs our and our friends support. Lily Belle is a wonderful Dachsie girl, who just beat Cancers butt and needs our help to kick the dogtor bill's butt. Please go check out the auction at Dachsies with Moxie. Scroll down the posts to see all 29 items.

Here is one item we donated that still doesn't have a bid and it's a steal of a deal with free U.S. shipping to boot at $50.00.

Wen by Chaz Dean 4-piece Cleanse Treat & Protect Essentials Collection-Fig
--32 fl oz. Cleansing Conditioner
--4 fl oz. Fig Sweet Orange Oil
--6 oz. Styling Creme
--12 fl oz. Replenishing Treatment Mist

We hope you will go visit the auction, and if you cannot buy, please spread the word. The auction ends May 21st.

Much Luvums,
The Slimmer Puggums

Winnie's Wish Holiday Auction/Fundraiser

Hi friends!
The Slimmer Pugs and Purrs have donated a few items to a special auction taking place right now through November 21st.  It supports the private rescue work of a friend of ours, Miss Chrystal, and the kitties waiting for forever homes.  Three of our family members---Luna, Percy, & Golden--are graduated of this rescue. 

If you have some holiday shopping to do or just some personal shopping, please stop by this auction and help support the kitties.

Much Love,
Mama Mindy

Pug Hugs,
George, Toby, Lily, & Mimi

Many Purrs,
Jack, Luna, Percy, & Golden

Toby is good!

Hi friends!
Just wanted to let you know that Toby went through surgery just fine. How fine?  I think eating two bowls (him and his sister's) of dinner this evening counts as a successful surgery.
Much Love,
Mama Mindy :)

Toby has surgery on 8/6/15 in the morning!!

Hi all!
Long time, no type.  That is what happens when a person is searching fervently for a job in teaching in the state of Kansas...but that will be a different story at a later time.  Right now, my entire focus is on Toby Moses.  Toby will be having three different surgeries/procedures tomorrow:  the removal of a tear duct blockage, dental, and cauterization of the quicks of his nail beds.  I have researched the last of the procedures and was a bit concerned; however, I talked with my most trusted vet technician at my vet office and she said exactly what would happen during the procedure, how long the procedure would take, and the recovery/pain level Toby would be in.  I was assured he would experience little to no discomfort, this was NOT like a declaw in a cat, and that he would experience only an additional 10 minutes under anesthesia. 
Pray for Toby that all goes well.  Mama CJ would be devastated as this is her "little man" although I would be devastated, too (he is my little man, too).
God Bless y'all,
Mama Mindy & Pug Sibs George, Lily, and Mimi

Christmas in July Week #3-4: Raising Money for Winnie's Wish Cathouse

Hi friends!
Here is the rules to ordering these gently used Christmas items.  You like it, you send me an e-mail at pugsandpurrsATgmailDOTcom.  I will let you know if you are the first person to post interest and if yes, I will let you know how to donate the donation price posted to Winnie's Wish.  Recently, Winnie's Wish added a third cathouse/room and I want  us in Blogville to raise money for the rescue, while reducing the amount I will be taking with me on a possible move.

All donation amounts include shipping.  I plan on shipping out items on Thursday as that is my payday.  I ship via USPS. I will not be able to ship overseas.

Cannot pay until Thursday?  That is fine.  Just let me know by e-mail your intent to pay for the item and I will get your item ready to ship and will wait for acknowledgement of the rescue receiving your donation before I ship. Make sure when you donate either on-line or by check that you let them know who you are or which item you won.  Anonymous donations are hard to verify. :)

Thanks friends and enjoy browsing these wonderful Christmas items!

Much Love,

Mama Mindy & The Slimmer Pugs and Purrs

Hi friends!
I hope you read the message behind this one to see the beautiful Danbury Mint pug items up for sale (price includes shipping).  I would love to be shipping these gently used items (not a problem with them except they have been cared for in a lovingly pug-filled home) and help the Winnie's Wish cathouse.  Since the cathouse experienced their grand opening (ribbon cutting) yesterday, I thought we could just donate the money directly to Chrystal to help her.  I will e-mail you with the blog address if interested in donating to the cause or if interested in purchasing one of the pug Christmas items and wondering how to pay for said item(s).
Love you all lots!!

ALL BLOG FURIENDS-- Look forward to some Jim Shore & Mr. Christmas awesome items that will have all the cats purring for next week's fundraiser to help Winnie's Wish. And even if you do not have cats, the items are AWESOME!!

God Bless,
Mindy :)

PS:  If these pug items do not get homes, I will keep them.  Just trying to make a future move easier on me...but I love these items too much to put them in a garage sale.  I just love Chrystal's rescue so much that I want to support her by selling items that I love.

Christmas in July--Pugs for Purrs

Hi friends!
My friend Chrystal at Daily Dose is almost finished with her 3rd cat house, and I would like for us in the blogosphere to buy her new room some housewarming gifts.

How are we going to do that?

 I have some fabulous gently used Danbury Mint pug items that I would like to start shipping out and getting new homes. As you all know, my mom, Mama CJ, and I will be moving into a new house hopefully sometime this Fall and it will be smaller and have less storage space.

I will keep the items at a fixed price including shipping, and some of these items could easily have $15-20 shipping costs attached, so please keep that in mind (i.e. the price I have typed includes shipping costs). I understand many get paid later this week or at the beginning of the month, so the first person to claim an item (i.e. leave a post, an e-mail address, and a comment with the number and the price you will donate at or above the asking price) will win the item and I will mark the item in bold red lettering with the word SOLD next to it. 

I will start shipping out on Monday, July 6th due to the 4th of July holiday and it will give me time to get the items ready for shipping.

Please share with all pug loving and cat loving friends.

Item #1- Pug Basket $40
Length: 7.25"
Width: 5.5"
Height: 7"

Item #2- Pug Jingle Bells $40

Length:  8.5"
Width: 5"
Height: 6"

Item #3- Pug Sleigh  $50 (lights up)

Length: 12"
Width: 4"
Height: 5.5"

Item #4- Pug Train Station $100 (lights up and train moves around the scene)

Diameter: 13"
Height: 8" (top of hat on snowman)

Item #5- Pug Dog House $100 (lights up)

Length: 11"
Width: 6"
Height: 9.5"

God Bless,
Mama Mindy & The Slimmer Pugs and Purrs

P.S. Please e-mail me at pugsandpurrsATgmailDOTcom so I can tell you how to pay for your item. I have an Amazon Prime Membership and I would like to buy a bunch of gifts from all of us for the new cat room using Chrystal's Wish-List and allow for free and quick shipping of our gifts to her cat rescue in Illinois. I promise to re-post Chrystal's post once she gets our gifts.
