My intention was to throw this little PSA up as an addendum to a recap post, but since I didn't watch the Sabres-Pens game in real time, and since the outcome made me opt out of catching up on specifics through which I might actually formulate a worthwhile opinion, I really couldn't be bothered today. I watched the transition from Season 1 to Season 2 of Doctor Who (Eccleston to Tennant) instead of thinking about hockey for the day, and let me tell you - it was marvelous.
Anyway, not really the point of this post... which is, quite frankly, for me to get down on my hands and knees and hope that at least a few of you readers will see this and step up to the plate with a few dollars.
A dear friend of the Deeg, Alissa (@aristeia on twitter) has a dog. This dog is adorable and, unfortunately, this dog is very, very ill.
If Buffalo is anything, it's a community that wraps it's own up in love and compassion, and for that reason we felt compelled to use our soapbox here at the Deeg - such as it is - to amplify the call to help Apollonia to our readership in the hopes that maybe a few of you will feel compelled to chip in.
Alissa has set up a tumblr page - http://saveapollonia.tumblr.com/ - and she has a Paypal "Donate" button there so that we all can contribute as we are able. She's also posted additional information about Apollonia's current status in case you're looking for some more details about where your money is going to. Me - I am an unabashed canine-enthusiast, and think Alissa kicks ass, so it was a no-brainer for me to contribute when Alissa put the tumblr page up yesterday. I don't expect it to be as easy a decision for all of you who may not know Alissa (though, if you're on twitter, you should give her a follow. Seriously), but even if you can only spare a few dollars, it would really make a huge difference in the lives of this stellar lady and her stellar dog.
Thanks for reading, if you still are, and thanks even more for heading over to http://saveapollonia.tumblr.com/ and contributing.
