The Fandom: A Dog's Best Friend


So. . . I’ve had a few requests for an update and things so far have been quite astonishing. The generosity of the Twilight fandom is legendary. Any time a benefit is organized, the response is tremendous and this personal appeal is no exception.

As of this writing, we’ve raised $1,550 and it hasn’t even been a full week yet! We can’t stop now – there’s still $3,450 to go.

Leo is coming along nicely already. Leslie (the trainer) is very pleased. He will be neutered next week. I’ve now created a new section of my blog entitled “Leo’s World” where you can find pictures, videos, and all the blog posts about us – the button is in the upper right of this page. FYI, I intend to make weekly posts on Thursdays moving forward.

I mentioned in my first post about Sebastien Robichaud’s generous offer of an outtake from The Ice Queen and Mr. McCarty, and two other authors have come forward to offer their services as well. Anais Mark, author of Metaphysics; and Just Duckie, author of Red Knight will each be contributing a one-shot, so a compilation for your donation is manifesting of its own volition.

In addition, Tkegl has very generously offered her banner making services to donors!!! She’s made two banners for me – WANT and Memories of You. Click on the “My Stories” button above to view these beautiful banners (and read the stories if you haven’t, lol).

Up on the block are 15 custom banners created by Tkegl for your story, available for a donation of $25 or more. One banner per donation. Just declare your interest in the memo box on the donation page and leave a comment below for good measure.

Once I receive notification of your donation and interest, I’ll forward her contact information to you so that you can work with her directly.

I know not everyone writes, so this is a special incentive for authors (or friends of authors who wish to gift a banner to their loved one).

For all of you who’ve donated, offered services, RT’d tweets, spread the word, prayed, and/or sent loving energy our way I’m sincerely and humbly grateful for all you’ve done and continue to do. Truly, help comes in many forms – it's not always about money.

Until next week!
Much love,

Hey Mal... I have a question for you… Can you tell me how a service dog will impact your life? I've generally only ever thought of service dogs helping people that are blind, and have never given any real thought to how else they can help people out. Are you willing to share this? If so, I'd love to hear your response. I'm a bit clueless at this point :)
