Howllo Fellow Hound and Kip and Gus Lovers: As many of my readers know, my sister was up for a few day last week. She was very inspired by Kip and Gus and how much they love basset hounds and more importantly, helping old basset hounds. Here is her message! She is such a sweet girl!

Thanks for the donation Nin, you just moved the red line up a bit!

Slurp! More Later…Cat, Chaps and Emma

Check out our Firstgiving link and see how we are doing!


Are you having trouble making a donation?

December 31st, 2007 - 6:06 pm KY Time

Hi folks: I just heard that some of you are having trouble making a donation to our sweet Firstgiving Page.


Are you on a MAC? If so try another browser other than Safari. Try Firefox or Netscape. It worked for my graphic designer and she was having the same trouble.

Please don’t give up! I can add donations other than Firstgiving to the tally! You can send Marilyn a paypal donation and she will forward your messagae to me along with the amount that you sent so I can add it to the FG page. (She will keep the $ and just tell me what you sent).

Marilyn’s Paypal is: olddogs@houseofpuddles.org

Remember you have to log on to paypal and send her money via this address. Make sure you tell her that it is for the sock hop so we can add you to the Tally! Slurp!

You can always send a check as well. Her address is:

House of Puddles, Inc.
4422 Reels Mill Rd.
Frederick, Md. 21704

Again, make sure you tell her to add you to the Tally! I want to see that red line move like a bullet! LOL!

A Firstgiving Update!

December 31st, 2007 - 5:05 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Hound and Firstgiving lovers! We are only 2 hours into our dance-a-thon and we have already raised 445.00 dollars. This is truly incredible! Thank you, thank you, and thank you!

Click here to donate via our Firstgiving link!
This is just a reminder and an update. I do not get your e-mail addresses when you donate to HOP through Firstgiving, so please send me an e-mail if you donate 20.00 or more and we will send you a 10 pack of Lily greeting cards or a Dream necklace!

I thought that you would like to see this again! Make sure to click on it for more detail! How cute!!!!

We love giving gifts to our supporters to the House of Puddles. This is a dream come true for Devon and myself to get involved with a Sr. Retirement Home for bassets. We know many more will spring up that we can help! Marilyn is a true inspiration and a dance sensation sweeping the Nation….it’s call the HOP!

Hermey unable to attend sock hop due to “clip, clip”! (ouch)

December 31st, 2007 - 12:12 pm KY Time

This just in from Hermey and Marilyn: Mr. delicious, AKA Hermey will not be hopping with the others today! His dancing for dollar days will have to wait. According to Marilyn, he is being “tutored” today! Poor boy, I hope he learns alot!

bye, bye jingle bells!

Hermey, please rest and let the other pull your weight.

More Later…..Cat, Chaps and Emma

P.S. The Firstgiving page has not even opened, and we have a significant donation! (cold chills)

Happy New Year’s Eve fellow hound lovers!

December 31st, 2007 - 10:10 am KY Time

Howllo Fellow Hound and NYE lovers: Well it is finally here! The day and night Devon and I have been waiting for. It is the unveiling of our FirstGiving page for the House of Puddles. It is our New Year’s Resolution to raise 10,000 for the HOP in 2008. What better way to kick off the party than with a sock hop!


I am not going to unveil the page until the West Coast, aka Devon can join us. We are having an early NYE party because the Hoppers can’t dance too long! Check back all day long for fun stuff. The video I made is not to be missed!

Devon please tell the party goers what you are doing tonight and where you will be reporting from! She is going to have a blast!
