I had never heard of such a thing as Holiday Helper but what a wonderful thing for MDC to organize. I can't wait to go through my stuff to see what I have that might help another family.

You all rock!

Drrrrrrrrr. "Holiday Helper" was in the back of my mind but I was still curious. Fool me twice... LOL!

What about, "Pumping for Puppies?"

This is a tree on fire with love, but it's still scary since most people think love only looks like one thing instead of the whole world. *

Can you imagine trying to rig up your human pump for a mama dog, serious issues would ensue.

Oooh, you chose mine. That is so funny because I was thinking of like, pumping to feed a preemie puppy left behind a shed or something, and this is even more out there. LOL!

That's what I thought too. If I left my milk out past my comfort level for giving to dc, I would give it to my dog. He loved it!
