Pay It Forward and Thanks!

Written by Jo, the Mom of Stella:

The wonderful Dughallmor Beagles got us into Pay it Forward and yesterday we received a very lovely package from Scotland! Stella told Nicky, the Dughallmor's Mum, what she wanted in her package! The nerve of her, but she got what she asked for! One was a nice group picture of the Beagles and the other was a souvenier of Scotland that she could wear on her collar! That turned out to be a St. Andrews flag and she was thrilled with it.



Ali Z got a gift of a flashy little dragon fly toy which she just loves. We played a while and then put it up so it hung from her little house she likes to play in. The knots in it were tied by a retired Sumo wrestler but I finally got them undone!
Nicky also included several packs of doggy treats, and one Mom treat of fudge, which I have needed very badly! It was very special and very good and just isn't lasting like it should.

The best thing was a donation of $10 which went to RSPCA Victoria Bush Fire Appeal. All in all, this was most fun, and a good thing not just for us but the Fire Appeal as well.

Would you like to join in for Pay It Forward? Here are the rules. "The exchange focuses on doing an act of kindness without expecting anything in return other than that the recipient will, in their turn, pass the kindness along and 'pay it forward' in their own way. This is how it works... We are going to agree to send something fun, inspiring or uplifting to the first 3 blog owners who post a comment on this entry. In turn you will then post about this on your blog, link to us, then send something to the first three people who sign up to play along through your blog. There are no cost restraints, BUT don't go crazy! The little something you send can be something you made, bought, were given or found. No biggie, just a gift that will make the person smile. Maybe something unique from where you live? And, remember that kindness doesn't have to involve money; there are untold ways to help others every single day, everywhere you go - just look around." SO PAY IT FORWARD...
So if you want to play along, leave a comment....the first three will receive a small gift and agree to Pay it Forward. If you are one of the first three to leave a comment, please send your postal address to letoile@arvig.net.

We have had loads of fun with this, and thank Nicky very much for her kind and generous gifts.

Kisses,

Jo and Stella

Peeess: We now have our three Paw it Forward players!
