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!!!!!"

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")
