PSA - Phod's Birthday Bash

April 1st will be Zaphod's 5th birthday, or rather the day we celebrate it. For those of you who are newer to the blog, Zaphod was picked up as a stray when he was about 1.5 years old. He was severally underweight (he was about 40lbs when he should have been closer to 70) and had behaviour that suggested he had been mistreated/abused. He was taken from the animal shelter into a loving foster home  by Catahoula Rescue Ontario. After a few weeks made his way to our family. (FYI: His cool name is from his foster mom Jenn who thought of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy when she found out he was walking down the highway when he was picked up).


The first night Phod was with his. He was nervous. This is still one of his favourite spots to sleep! 

We wanted to keep his adoption/gotcha day separate from his birthday so we could celebrate him twice a year. We picked April 1st as his birthday. We picked this day because it is fun and it is his Aunt K's birthday.

This year, it is estimated that Zaphod will be turning 5. To celebrate his birthday we have decided to do a fundraising event to help other abused and mistreated animals. We have selected the Ontario SPCA as the charity we will support for this fundraiser.

Here is what you need to know to participate:

- Send a picture of your pet(s) "fooling around" and having fun (the sillier the better), by March 27th, 2016 to leeandphodATbellDOTnet
- Grab our badge or find other ways to spread the word that this event is happening



What the Lady will do:

-For every submission she will donate $1.
-For every comment made within 48 hours of the post going up (Friday April 1st, 6 am EST to Sunday April 3rd, 6 am EST), she will donate .50 cents


If you have any questions feel free to contact us at leeandphodATbellDOTnet.

Thank you in advance for joining us in celebrating Phod's birthday and helping mistreated animals.

  22. That is a wonderful idea. Mom said she'd also send any royalties from her books sold on that day to that organization. Thank you for doing this to help the animals!

  23. What a great way to celebrate! I'll have to look through all my photos but I'm a Scot and very dignified so it might be hard to find a silly photo but I'll send something.

    Aroo to you,

  24. That's such a good picture. It looks like he's worried, but so thankful at the same time. Don't you wish he could tell you about his past?

    We'll try and find a good picture to send you. We're sure it won't be too hard.
