House Wife Blues and Chihuahua Stories: It’s MY room! Bloggers Help Paws With a Cause Fundraiser Day 2.

This is something I’ve been sharing on Twitter this week. But I wanted to share it here too. Y’all know I did the charity anthology Dark Things II: Cat Crimes in 2011 and with losing my favorite pooch this last year and because Veterans are dear to my heart, I wanted to get in on this event too. Alas, time got away from me.  But my friend Jackie and some other fine bloggers and authors are participating, so I couldn’t help but point you in their direction. Do go check out their fine posts. I see some that have giveaways too. So do enjoy.

And Ladies, *salutes* Fine job!
