The day before yesterday, I got more blankets from my grandmother. She lives in Carmel so I got to visit the beach. I also visited downtown Carmel. My grandmother had some blankets for us. After the visit, the final count on blankets stood at 55. Here are the final pics:

Yesterday I received fifteen blankets, putting our total at 46. This means that 4 Weeks, Forty Blankets is now over.
I'd like to thank everyone who donated, or helped donate. A special thank you to the Happy Dragon, for helping by giving us things. Another thank you to the Humane Society.
Lastly, I'd like to thank Dino the dog, and of course, my mom. You two really helped it get going.
This is the official end of 4 Weeks, Forty Blankets. But who knows what will happen next year?

Yesterday was my big moment. After lots of discussion, Mom finally got the Humane Society to do something exciting. Just what? I got to have my picture taken, the possibility of being in the Humane Society's fall newsletter and a chance to be in our local paper, the Los Gatos Weekly. This is just how it all went down.
We showed up with the car stuffed with stuff. I was holding some of the cuter stuffed animals to take some load off. Some of the Humane Society people were hosting a meeting outside, so we passed them on the way in. We came inside and told the person at the front desk why we were there. While we were waiting, we saw some new employees getting introduced to a big, 70-pound Shepherd and Chow mix named Dino (pronounced Dee-no). The person we asked for came in and saw that we were watching Dino. She explained that he would be the dog in the pictures with me later.
Now, let me explain about Dino. He's a young dog at only 4 years old, yet he's already had hip problems. In fact, he has a artificial hip. On the hip, you can see the mark where they did the surgery. However, that does not stop him from wanting to play, but the people have to stop him from playing TOO much.
Once we were done talking about the pictures later, with guidance from one of their trainers, I took Dino for a short walk. Actually, I'd more describe it as him tugging and me holding on in the begging. But after a little time, he started to walk calmly at my side. He's very sweet, and I got to give him some treats for being such a good dog. I wish Trinket got to have some of those treats. They were hamburger flavor.
As for the pictures, they were pretty boring compared to walking a dog that is about as heavy as you are. I'm glad I got to spend some time at the Humane Society.

Yesterday I visited LT. She wasn't at home, but the things were waiting at the end of her driveway. She owns two dogs, who were barking at us when we picked the stuffed animals up. Here is the picture of some of the stuffed animals (the cutest ones):

Two days ago I picked up two blankets, each in it's own bag. Yesterday, Mom picked up 9 baby blankets, two blankets and some cute stuffed animals. Here are the pictures:
The count on blankets is now up to 28.
