Paws with a Cause Blog Hop: Nothing beats furbaby love

There will be no special guest this week because I am taking part in a very special blog hop this week. The Paws with a Cause Hop is designed to raise awarness and finanical assistance for a great organization. Their message is below but before I get to that, I wanted share a bit about my furry crew.

We have three dogs and a kitty in our house. We are down one cat since we lost our beloved Siamese less than a year ago. She was 19 years old and had all she could take of this world.

Anyone with pets know that these little guys are more than just animals. They are our kids, they get into our hearts and souls and become a part of us and they do this because they each have their own personality that endears us to them and makes us love them just as we do our children.

Humphrey Bogart assists me with writing and editing duties nearly every day. He hisses at typos.


This is the norm for our puppies. They are either side-by-side-by-side or butt-to-head-to-butt. They sleep as a herd, and usually at my feet.

If you haven’t experience this kind of furbaby love and devotion, you haven’t lived yet. Nothing beats it, nothing compares to this unconditional accetance and warmth.

For someone who has a disability this is a friendship that could mean even more than that. Paws With A Cause is rasing money to help people who need the assitance of an animal to live their lives to the best of their ability and I am so excited to be a part of this hop to help them do that.

Anyone who donates, can copy me on the information that Danielle has requested below at and I will put you in a drawing to win a free copy of Unforgettable You AND a free copy of The Messenger which will be released in May through Secret Cravings Publishing.

I am hoping to hear from lots of you and am looking forward to rewarding you for your wonderful donation!



Hello Everyone! We have a total of 59 blogs that have gotten together to help raise money for a great cause. There are going to be some awesome prizes up for grabs for people that donate money to the cause. Here is a little about the company that we are raising the money for:

Paws With A Cause® enhances the independence and quality of life for people with disabilities nationally through custom-trained Assistance Dogs.


PAWS® increases awareness of the rights and roles of Assistance Dog teams through education and advocacy. Founded in 1979, Paws With A Cause is dedicated to helping its clients who are challenged by many disabilities, such as Cerebral Palsy, Muscular Dystrophy, Seizure Disorders, and Hearing Disorders to name just some. Each of our dogs are trained to meet the specific needs of our clients. Tasks may include opening and closing doors, picking up objects, pulling a wheelchair, turning lights on and off, and alerting a person to particular sounds like a telephone, doorbell, smoke detector and many others. Our dogs change lives by enhancing the independence of our clients. By just opening a door, a dog opens up the world for a person with a disability and your donations will go to making that happen. PAWS thanks you so much for your donation and allowing us to open more doors.

How to donate:

1. Go to
2. Click on “Make a Donation”
3. Enter a amount you wish to donate. Everibbon will add a small fee to your donation for processing. My fee for donating $5.00 was .49 cents. So keep this in mind when deciding your donation amount. You will receive 1 entry into the giveaway for every $1 you donate.
4. In the box that says “on the behalf of” please put your name. This is the name that will be listed on the everibbon website so put a name you do not mind being visible to everyone. Do not check the box to make a anonymous donation because I will not be able to track your donation to enter you into the giveaways.
5. Next it will ask you for your credit or debit card information.
6. Then it will ask for your email address to send you a receipt. This is so that you can submit it for tax purposes.
7. Ta Da! Your all done making your donation. Now you need to contact Danielle to enter the giveaway.
8. Please email Danielle at with the name you used to donate your money. For example the name I used to donate on behalf of was Romance Book Junkies. Do not send me your name off your credit or debit card because I will not be able to see this. Along with the name you used please tell me how much you donated and if you live in the US or are International.
9. Your all done. Thank you for donating!

Warning: Do not try to email Danielle the name and donation amount of another person that is not yourself. If Danielle recieves more than one email with the same persons name and donation amount she will have to ask for your copy of the receipt from everibbon to verify that you are the correct winner. Thank you.

We will have 3 winners for the main giveaway.
We have 2 $65 gift certificates to any online book store.
Also we have a huge box of books and swag from Romance Book Junkies for US residents only.

Good luck to all and thank you for helping make this fundraiser a success.
