THE STORY:

My name is Melissa, and I'd like to introduce my three...wait, now FOUR dogs, Tobin, Arlo, Pippin and Seeger!.  Take it from here, kids! 

Hi!  We are the Ossanna pack of rescued dogs!  We all were dumped by someone, but were lucky enough to be taken in by three great Rescues, and now we all live together with an awesome family who loves us.

Our mom says she has us to thank for getting her moving (Tobin asserts it was he who got me moving, since he was the first one adopted).  It’s true…we are all energetic dogs, and we like long walks!  But our mom went one step further…she started running!  We TOTALLY LOVE running!  Pippin has run up to two miles with us now, and Seeger is looking forward to joining us soon, he just arrived this week!

Mom is training for a marathon (she doesn’t like to start small).  Mom has Multiple Sclerosis, and we don’t really know what that means, but we know that Mom is really, really happy that she is healthy enough to think about running 26.2 miles. 

Mom is raising money for MS research while she trains, but we told her that, as her training buddies, we wanted to raise some money to help more dogs like us!  And she thought that was a GREAT idea! 

Eskie Rescuers United is helping us with our fundraising efforts.  You can donate here, and they will split the funds raised three ways, to support the three rescue organizations that helped save us, Eskie Rescuers United, Puppy Love LLC in Bailey Island, Maine, and Connecticut Underhound Railroad, based in New England. 

If you use Facebook, you can visit our Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/RunForRescue. ‘Like’ our page, you’ll see links to the three rescue organizations you will be supporting, plus we’ll post updates about our mom’s training efforts, and the fun runs we’ve done with her.  Her link is on our page for her fundraising efforts (she gives us lots of love, so we thought it would be okay for her to share our page).  We’ll introduce you to the rest of the family on our page, too!

Please donate if you can!  We thank you, as do all the other homeless dogs that your dollars will help rescue!
