Today is our mama's 30th birthday and she wanted to tell you about an auction. That's just the way she is about things.
Before she tells you about the Insta-Auction, we would like to do a pup-date on ourselves.
George: All of us have canine influenza. How do you ask? Mama and her mama and daddy had new floors and carpet installed. We had to go stay at a boarding facility during that time. What the boarding facility did not know was that some other pups were sick? So...thanks for sharing pups!! (NOT!!).
Toby: I am having the worse cough of all the sibs from that...incident. I have a bit of a pulmonary issue and being sick stinks!! On top of that, about 4-6 months ago, I started acting like I was having seizures. Turns out, one of my ear drum's burst and I developed old man (dog) vestibular disease. My head is always cocked to the left or is it the right? Anywho? I am plugging along and bossing my mamas everyday. The bonus of having old man vestibular disease is that the mamas carry me up and down the stairs and up and down on the couch. Yippee!!
Lily: I had a dental not too long ago. All is well...except for the sickies!!
Mimi: I had a "feminine" issue and it was bacterial and yeast. Now the mama's have the indecency to clean me "down there"...but it sure beats the itchies!!
Hi everyone! Mama Mindy here. My great friend Chrystal with the heart of gold over at daily dose of dogs (aka cats with your coffee)--check out my sidebar and read her posts...they are absolutely inspiring--always is needing cat food, cat litter, and money for vaccinations. To help her out, another great friend, Andrea, over at Celestial Kitties--also on my sidebar--had the genius idea of having a continuous auction called an Insta-Auction. What is an insta-auction? In Andrea's own words:
"There is no set end date for the whole auction BUT there will be end dates for individual items.
How do we decide when the end dates are? Well, that's up to YOU!
There is no time on anything until a bid comes in. If you bid on an item on a Wednesday, then that auction will end exactly seven days later, but only for that item. So if another item gets a bid on Saturday, does it end on Wednesday? Nope, it ends on the following Saturday!
Bids will only be taken on items for seven days following the first bid, then highest bidder gets it! Some items may not get an end time for a long time, and that's fine. The idea is to leave the auction open so when you're ready or see something you like, you can bid on your time! (Unless someone else bids on it first, then you have a week!) :)
Making sense? I hope so! But if not, please feel free to ask in comments, or email me (anniclan AT aol DOT com), or send a message on facebook (Andrea)."
Please go check out the Insta-Auction by clicking the badge here...and I will also have it on my sidebar. If you have anything to donate, please contact Andrea by using the e-mail listed above.
Thanks friends for listening to my request and for listening to the pugs pup-date. They miss you all bunches.
The Slimmer Puggums
George, Toby, Lily, & Mimi
