This is definitely worth celebrating!  I think I'll have some Frosty Paws to celebrate!

Thanks so much for all your wonderful entries!  It made us feel so good just to read them -- to hear about all the great things my readers are doing to help out homeless animals!  If you haven't read the entries (all posted in the comments to the Frosty Paws Giveaway post-- I posted the email entries too), you should go back and read them.  The entries are wonderful, and there are some great ideas of ways to help!

Many thanks to Frosty Paws for providing all prize package materials, including coupons, plush toys, and shipping envelopes, and for paying all shipping costs!   I LOVE Frosty Paws!

ATTENTION WINNERS:  Please email your shipping address to me at garth DOT riley AT so I can send out your Frosty Paws Prize Packages as soon as this silly Frankenstorm thing has run its course.  If I don't hear from you immediately, I will understand, since we expect some of us here on the east coast to be without power at some point in the near future.

Richmond, Virginia is still calm and dry -- the worst is supposed to hit us sometime tonight, but it's supposed to be much worse for our friends up north.  Our thoughts are with those in the storm's path.  Stay safe, my friends.
