There is No Crying in Baseball | Manolo for the Big Girl

There is No Crying in Baseball

There is NO crying in baseball, and the reason I am saying that today is because I am so overwhelmed with gratitude and pride for my awesome readers and I have come perilously close to tearing up several times.  Thanks mostly to the efforts of Manolo for the Big Girl readers, little Stevie the blind flood puppy WILL get to visit the fancy Nashville vet who might be able to help him.

I cannot thank you enough.

Speaking of thanks, I’ve received several emails asking me if you still get a thank you letter if you donated after the $800 goal had been reached. Of course you do! Stevie’s vet bills will be a minimum of $800, anything in addition to that will still be used for our fine four-legged flood survivor.

It’s going to take me a couple weeks to get all these thank you cards out –what a great problem to have– so please be patient.

I don’t do humble well (as you might have noticed) but I am humbled by this. Y’all are the best, and I will try to keep up with Stevie as he makes his big-girl assisted journey back to health.

    Go Team Us! And while we’re at it, can I encourage anyone touched by this story to get involved in their local dog/cat/other animal rescue organization? I’m a volunteer with French Bulldog Rescue Network, and can’t say enough for the people who help us do what we do.

    Even just a little donation makes a huge difference, not just on a cumulative financial level, but on an emotional one. And if you can open your home to an animal in need, whether as a foster or forever home, please consider it.

    Aaaaaa! I went back to look at Stevie’s page again and saw that they are now directing donors to the page for another dog named Pebbles. And Pebbles’s sweet, sad eyes compelled me to make another donation. I so wish I could save them all.

    Pebbles looks a lot like my dear departed childhood dog, and her story is similar to the adorable poodle my parents now have (kept chained/caged for years as a puppy machine, and is somehow still the sweetest, friendliest little dog ever). I had to make a little donation to her. I hope she makes a full recovery and finds a loving home!

    I second the Yeah Team Us! Simply awesome.
    So with that in mind, I went back and left a little lov’n for Pebbles. Those eyes…I just want to hug and love her up.
    I too hope her story has a happy ending.

    I don’t think I qualify as a Big Girl, but I am tall and have big feet and lots of sympathy for my four-legged fellow-passengers. I’m glad I could help and be an honorary member of Team Us. :)

    This is appropriate and beautiful and always makes me cry (which I try not to do because it makes me blotchy and happens more than I care to admit): http://www.blindbuddy.info/document_a_dog_for_jesus_by.htm
