Will issue a freeper challenge. In addition to my monthly will donate an additional $10.00 for every freeper pet picture posted. (One pet per freeper...fair is fair :o) ) Deadline, 24 hours from now.

Am doing this in memory of Rusty....our beloved Ridgeback we found on FR 4 years ago....a California freeper neighbor of the dog put out an appeal on FR to rescue him from a LA shelter. He was the most expensive "pound puppy" one could have...shipping him to Ohio...having to fence in the yard...he had a thing for walking through screens...and on and on and on. But what a wonderful four years we had with him. He died peacefully of lymphoma 2 months ago. I'll try to post a link to the thread I did about him at the Finest a few years ago.

Okay guys....CHALLENGE THROWDOWN!!!!!"


TOPICS: Business/Economy; Computers/Internet; Education; Pets/Animals
KEYWORDS: dutchess; freepathon; petpictures
Dutchess's late sweet boy, Rusty, in whose name she's offering this FReepathon challenge ... $10 for each pet pic posted.

POST away ... it's for a GREAT and important cause!!

Unfortunately, my family’s pet died last year, however, due to the mass Freepathon mailers, I will consider becoming a monthly donor, in addition to the one-time contributions that I have already made.

In all the excitement I can't believe mom didn't post a picture of me. I'm now 14 and the apple of her eye. (Plus I was "dumped" as a puppy and found my way to their doorstep...another freeperpup success story) Anyway, Rusty was my best friend but he's happy and frolicking at rainbow bridge. Thanks for everyone who participated!!!! As starwise said, you know who you are. Thanks to you all, another $600 has been raised for the best site on the internet!!!! Love - Gizmo (aka "the giz")

What a cute dog!

Gizmo has been (well all our pups have been) our "gifts from god". He literally showed up at our back door patio. Woke me up one morning throwing his little filthy body at our screened patio door. I opened it and he started running around the house in circles. We put ads in the newspaper, contacted the Humane Society and after a few weeks were thrilled when nobody claimed him. Hate that he's now 14 but that's 14 wonderful years we've had with him.

She’s a Boxer. Didn’t keep any puppies but we keep in touch with the owners. The little brown one became a show ring winner.

I still love you, Giz. Rusty and I talk about you everyday.

If I hadn't been poisoned by the darn squirrels, I'd be running for POTUS--and I really would be the best candidate in the race!

Lonestar. It makes me feel so good to know you are taking care of Codee and Rusty. But...the squirrels have taken over the bird feeders. Rusty always took care of that!!! Time for a new big earth brother? Love - Giz
