The following causes are very important to me so we have set up these fundraisers to help out my fellow doggies. These designs are available on shirts and other gift items and all commissions earned go to each cause.

Find A Cure For IMHAI was diagnosed with Evans Syndrome in 2006. It is a combination of IMHA/AIHA (Immune Mediated Hemolytic Anemia/Auto-Immune Hemolytic Anemia) and IMT/ITP (Immune Mediated Thrombocytopenia/Immune Thrombocytopenic Purpura). I was hospitalized for over a week and received numerous blood transfusions and a cocktail of immunosuppressants to save my life. I was weaned off the medications due to complications such as Cushings Disease but after a few months off the drugs, I relapsed again so I am currently back on medication. I continue to fight this disease everyday. There is no cure for this disease so please help support the fight for a cure. Meisha's Hope Fund and Morris Animal Foundation has teamed up to find a cure for IMHA with Autoimmune/Immune-Mediated Hemolytic Anemia Fund #338. Immune-Mediated Hemolytic Anemia is a serious blood disorder and scientists estimate over 50% of dogs diagnosed with it will die from the condition. Affected dogs show signs of weakness, lethargy, exercise intolerance and anorexia. This deadly blood disorder occurs when something triggers the dog's body to attack its own red blood cells. Despite aggressive immunosuppressive therapy, this disease has a very high mortality rate. Many dogs die shortly after diagnosis, so an effective early treatment is critical. All commissions earned from this design will go to the Meisha's Hope AIHA/IMHA Fund #338 at Morris Animal Foundation.

American Eskimo Dog RescueEveryday, people are working together to rescue Eskies and to help them find their forever homes. Show your support for these wonderful people and organizations. All commissions earned from this cartoon American Eskimo dog design will go to Eskie Rescue.

Opt To AdoptMommie adopted me in 2005 and she always says it is the best thing ever. Loving dogs are waiting in shelters around the country to be adopted. Opt to adopt and make a loving forever home for these poor dogs. All commissions earned from this design will go to local animal shelters.

Weekend Getaway

Mommie and Daddy have been promising to take me on a trip to play in the snow. Last year we did not make it. The year before that I injured my foot so even though we went to Lake Tahoe, I was pretty much stuck indoors. So this year, they said they would make sure I would be able to play in the snow. So when we saw that it snowed for two whole days, off we went to Lake Tahoe for the weekend. I was so excited I ran around the house while they were packing. So I was pretty tired by the time we got on the road. But I stayed awake and kept looking out the window to check for snow.

To my horror, there was no snow. The trees were green and the ground was brown and dry. Waaah!!! Daddy said it was too warm so looks like even though it snowed a lot the past few days, the snow melted quickly. Sigh! Anyway, I decided to make the most of it and just enjoy the nice hotel we booked.


Grandma liked it coz it has a casino inside. That is where she spent most of her time. Teehee! I am too young to gamble so I investigated the grounds. Here I am roaming the hallway.

Outside our room, there is a huge yard!

First order of business, claim the yard as my own with a little marking.

So relaxing here.

Can we stay here forever?

I love having a backyard!


I get to run around and play ball all day long.

I explored a bit further and found this creek.



After that it was time to check out the pools. I see snow in the distance!





I even get to sunbathe on loungers.

The sun is quite bright though. Where are my shades?

Ahh that's much better!



This is the life!


I feel so spoiled!

They even have a pool that has a sloping end so I can just walk right into the water. So cool!




It even has water fountains in my size!

The lobby inside the hotel is also very nice.

It's warm and cozy in here.

The casino is on the other side of that fireplace. That is where Grandma is. I can see her through the fireplace.

On the other side of the street, the hotel has another area where you can see Lake Tahoe.

They have a huge fire pit.

On our side there is a fire pit, too. It is smaller but we get to roast marshmallows on this side.

Oh Mommm.... I think I need a pedicure. Do we have time to stop by the hotel spa?
No? That's ok we can go some other time.

Before I knew it, it was time to say goodbye to our wonderful hotel.

As we drove down the mountain, I was in for a surprise. Daddy spotted snow on the ground. So we stopped at the side of the road and walked up to it. Yipee! Snow at last!



We even got to ride my saucer!



After playing in the snow, we also stopped by Lake Donner on the way down. It's so pretty there.

What a wonderful weekend! So glad we took the trip.

That is one heck of a day! What a good looking dog. Do you have any bath pictures? I'd really love to see him/her (I can't find out! I tried!) when he/she's wet. I've never seen it before.
