Before blogging I had no knowledge – therefore limited interest in this whole facebook friends / social media phenomena that was taking over the country.
In fact – truth be told – I barely understood it. But because of Groovy Goldendoodles™ I’ve had to venture out into cyber space more and more.
Thanks to Facebook and Harley, last Thursday I had a wonderful morning. Last Thursday I was able to meet one of our Facebook friends.
THE REST OF THE STORY
Many of you know about Harley’s involvement with his Doodle Dads shoe drive #happyfeet. Earlier this month I posted a photo (on Harley’s Facebook Fan page) of him tip toeing through at least a hundred shoes in our garage…
It was exciting to see the number of people it reached in such a short period of time. #918wow
A few days later Olde Towne Pet Resort extended a helping hand and offered him a spot in their lobby as a drop off location. #doodletastic
Then a woman from a mutual Doodle FB group saw the photo, commented about the cause and asked for my email address. Shortly thereafter I received this…
Hello Cathy, I am a Goldendoodle Mom. I have two bags of shoes I would like to contribute to the shoe drive. Is there a convenient place to meet? Heidi
After a few more internet volleys between us, we agree to meet at her house the morning before my trip to Charleston.
Turns out we’re not that far from one another, and we hit it off instantly. Our passions are so similar:
Her Goldendoodle Tyson is so sweet and well behaved…
I enjoyed watching the two of them together. Tyson reminded me so much of my Leo, always wanting to “climb” on Mommy…
We exchanged Doodle stories, laughed a great deal and drank coffee. It was like reuniting with an old friend. Tyson even played ball with me! #Ifeltspecial…
I hated to leave, but I had go 🙁 We loaded up the car with bags and boxes of dress shoes, sandals and tennis. #sogenerous
Operation #happyfeet continues to gain momentum every day. The goal is to keep this shoe drive going until the end of March.
Upon my return this weekend all I could do was laugh when I opened the garage door. I was gone for only four days and as I stared in the garage, I was reminded of that scene from the movie “Jaws.” Remember when Chief Brody saw the shark for the first time? Remember the shocked look on his face when he went to Quint and said “You’re gonna need a bigger boat”…
WE’RE GONNA NEED A BIGGER GARAGE
But it’s all good, let the shoes keep coming so there will be hundreds of people walking, running, and dancing with #happyfeet. If you’re not familiar with Harley’s participation in this shoe drive, please read here. If you can, share this within your social media circles. Who knows – you may have friends in the area that would like to help Harley, Doodle Dad and the men of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc.
ON ANOTHER NOTE
Remember to be kind to someone and as always, thank you so very much for sharing me with all your friends!
