So many to thank for making our last community education and public awareness event of 2014 so successful!
Thank you to PV Hazeldean for being so gracious, accommodating and wonderful to us!
Thank you to Bruce, Doogie and Margaret for being extra hands and arms and, voices!
Thank you to Tracy for lending her loving arms to BHRR's Mav as needed!! He is just a wee bit bonded to me….. 
Thank you to all that came to visit and chat and, spoil The Lord and made donations for the other animals in need of BHRR.
Thank you Sasha for the surprise visit from Costa Rica! 
Lord Stafford's smooch pooch sessions on his red carpet raised $160.85! He had a line up at times. He was such a flirt and, thank goodness his chaperone of Doogie was there to make sure he behaved himself!!  I got to be his slave and hand out the pretty roses!
We did two microchips, ensuring that one more cat(the beautiful Athena) and, one more dog(the gorgeous GD Gambit) would have the best of chances finding their way back to their loving homes should they go MIA.
Thank you to Nevenka for the bag of FROMM and, so sorry that your SS (BHRR's Treasure) was adopted and, you missed out in spoiling him, this XMAS. Yet, his forever loving adoptive home shall instead.
Thank you to Sabrina for her own kind and generous donation of two bags of dog food!
Thank you for the SS gifts Lianne and Cliff for BHRR's Gretta and BHRR's Merlin. They are going to be out in public in style!
Thank you to the Savages for your donations that Margaret has in her great care and, I will connect with her later to collect. You are so giving! 
Thank you to Bob for visting us with BHRR's Holden and BHRR's Torque to many(his new special name is now Neo!).
Thank you to all the great people that took time out of their own precious weekend to come and spend some time with us!
Noelle, seeing you again was really nice and, knowing that even almost 6 years later, your son still loves Danes from being so captivated by my now RIP CH. TAIN, CGN when he met him, touches me deeply….
Any and, all omissions made for any appreciative thanks that should be sent, all totally mine and, please forgive me….. 
The photo below is of FREEDOM volunteer Cindy who drove all the way from Metcalfe to smooch with the Lord! Some may remember her as she assisted in getting BHRR's Triumph to me this last summer when we were contacted to assist him. 
As exhausted as I was from several really stressful and worrisome days and virtually zero sleep with The Mavie, Saturday's warmth brings home to me, as to why I do what I do and, that each and every animal under our care is done right by. Thank you all for discreetly looking the other way as the tears welled up and some spilled over when we were talking about him and, how close it came to losing him….thanks Margaret for your touching my knee in strength as I worked to collect myself….. 
To all our strong links in that BHRR CHAIN OF SUCCESS, you have helped raise $446.25 for BHRR's Stafford's Vet Bills on Saturday!
We are still working on fundraising for The Mav and, as things fall into place, we will post!
