Gremlin & Wilson Presidential Campaign!

Well we are still waiting for the Lucy the Wonderbull Original Sock Dog to come (next month, I hate being patient BOL!) BUT I have great news! Gremlin and Wilson Potter have graciously invited me to join their presidential cabinet as head of the Department of World Relations! Isn't that exciting?! (p.s. if you don't know about them, check out their facebook at http://www.facebook.com/pages/Gremlin-Wilson-2012-Presidential-Campaign/162135863885590 -there's also a link on this blog to the right :) remember to like them and vote!) This means, when Lucy is ready to head out on her journey to end BSL, she will also be promoting their campaign! AND even more exciting, you can get a visit from Gremlin and Wilson too! Just email your specs to rowdy2therescue@gmail.com to sign up :)

Anyway, hopefully I'll have some pictures soon of Lucy the WonderSock 'in the making' to put up here! I'm so excited!!!

Oh The Places You'll Go

I've had quite a few people sign up to have a visit from Lucy the WonderSock! Remember, ANYBODY can sign up, it's easy and for a great cause! Simply email me at lucythewonderbull@yahoo.com with your name, email, and complete address, and you'll be added to the list! That easy!

Well Lucy the WonderSock is currently 'in the making' and will be ready for departure in December! We can't wait to get her on her journey to end BSL and raise awareness to misunderstood breeds. Planning this 'trip' has gotten me thinking alot about why we are doing this in the first place. There are so many wonderful dogs out there who are in desperate need of a home and someone to love, that are turned down or even shunned because of what they look like. I do not believe in treating any person or animal differently based on looks alone, and I know you all feel the same. This trip that we are sending Lucy on is to help broaden the minds of those that are fearful of us, or simply don't know what we are really like, in a positive and fun way. Will you join us on our journey?

Oh! The Places You’ll Go!by the incomparable Dr. Seuss
Congratulations!Today is your day.You’re off to Great Places!You’re off and away!
You have brains in your head.You have feet in your shoes.You can steer yourself any direction you choose.You’re on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the guy who’ll decide where to go.
You’ll look up and down streets. Look’em over with care. About some you will say, “I don’t choose to go there.” With your head full of brains and your shoes full of feet, you’re too smart to go down a not-so-good street.
And you may not find any you’ll want to go down. In that case, of course, you’ll head straight out of town. It’s opener there in the wide open air.
Out there things can happen and frequently do to people as brainy and footsy as you.
And when things start to happen, don’t worry. Don’t stew. Just go right along. You’ll start happening too.
Oh! The Places You’ll Go!
You’ll be on your way up!You’ll be seeing great sights!You’ll join the high fliers who soar to high heights.
You won’t lag behind, because you’ll have the speed. You’ll pass the whole gang and you’ll soon take the lead. Wherever you fly, you’ll be best of the best. Wherever you go, you will top all the rest.
Except when you don’t.Because, sometimes, you won’t.
I’m sorry to say so but, sadly, it’s true that Bang-ups and Hang-ups can happen to you.
You can get all hung up in a prickle-ly perch. And your gang will fly on. You’ll be left in a Lurch.
You’ll come down from the Lurch with an unpleasant bump. And the chances are, then, that you’ll be in a Slump.
And when you’re in a Slump, you’re not in for much fun. Un-slumping yourself is not easily done.
You will come to a place where the streets are not marked. Some windows are lighted. But mostly they’re darked. A place you could sprain both your elbow and chin! Do you dare to stay out? Do you dare to go in? How much can you lose? How much can you win?
And if you go in, should you turn left or right…or right-and-three-quarters? Or, maybe, not quite? Or go around back and sneak in from behind? Simple it’s not, I’m afraid you will find, for a mind-maker-upper to make up his mind.
You can get so confused that you’ll start in to race down long wiggled roads at a break-necking pace and grind on for miles across weirdish wild space, headed, I fear, toward a most useless place.
The Waiting Place…for people just waiting.
Waiting for a train to go or a bus to come, or a plane to go or the mail to come, or the rain to go or the phone to ring, or the snow to snow or waiting around for a Yes or No or waiting for their hair to grow. Everyone is just waiting.
Waiting for the fish to bite or waiting for wind to fly a kite or waiting around for Friday night or waiting, perhaps, for their Uncle Jake or a pot to boil, or a Better Break or a string of pearls, or a pair of pants or a wig with curls, or Another Chance. Everyone is just waiting.
No! That’s not for you!Somehow you’ll escape all that waiting and staying. You’ll find the bright places where Boom Bands are playing. With banner flip-flapping, once more you’ll ride high! Ready for anything under the sky. Ready because you’re that kind of a guy!
Oh, the places you’ll go! There is fun to be done! There are points to be scored. There are games to be won. And the magical things you can do with that ball will make you the winning-est winner of all. Fame! You’ll be famous as famous can be, with the whole wide world watching you win on TV.
Except when they don’t. Because, sometimes, they won’t.
I’m afraid that some times you’ll play lonely games too. Games you can’t win ‘cause you’ll play against you.
All Alone!Whether you like it or not, Alone will be something you’ll be quite a lot.
And when you’re alone, there’s a very good chance you’ll meet things that scare you right out of your pants. There are some, down the road between hither and yon, that can scare you so much you won’t want to go on.
But on you will go though the weather be foul. On you will go though your enemies prowl. On you will go though the Hakken-Kraks howl. Onward up many a frightening creek, though your arms may get sore and your sneakers may leak. On and on you will hike. And I know you’ll hike far and face up to your problems whatever they are.
You’ll get mixed up, of course, as you already know. You’ll get mixed up with many strange birds as you go. So be sure when you step. Step with care and great tact and remember that Life’s a Great Balancing Act. Just never forget to be dexterous and deft. And never mix up your right foot with your left.
And will you succeed?Yes! You will, indeed!(98 and ¾ percent guaranteed.)
Kid, you’ll move mountains!So…be your name Buxbaum or Bixby or Bray or Mordecai Ale Van Allen O’Shea, you’re off to Great Places!Today is your day!Your mountain is waiting.So…get on your way!

Lucy the Wonderbull's going to travel!

I've got great news! I will be starting my journey AROUND THE WORLD this december! The Lucy the Wonderbull Original Sock Dog is being made right now and will be ready to be sent out around Christmas. --It's always been my dream to travel and raise awareness about pit bulls and to promote the end of BSL (breed specific legislation). SO as soon as I get my sock dog in the mail i'm sending her out to meet all of you! Here's how this works: If you want Lucy the Wonderbull to visit you, email me at lucythewonderbull@yahoo.com with your name, full address (including country) and email, and I will add you to the list! Lucy will have alot of places to visit so she can only stay with each family for 1 week. Lucy will be traveling with a camera to document her trip, so make sure to snap at least FIVE pictures! (rules for photos: NO obscene pictures, Lucy is a lady. You must take at least 5 pictures and at least 1 picture has to be of her helping to promote the end of BSL or raise awareness to her breed. How? Be creative! You can get her picture volunteering at a rescue or writing a letter to the city council-it's up to you!) After you've taken your pictures- hop onto the computer and send them to me via email with a summary of her visit with you (what you did, who you met, etc) so I can put them in the blog. Once I recieve the pictures and travel log, I will email you with the next address to ship Lucy to. After that, send her on her way! I don't care which service is used to ship her but please make sure she has all her things and is comfortable, and has a tracking number, we don't want to lose her! After she's shipped, please email me with her tracking number as well. Doesn't this sound fun?! Again, Lucy won't be leaving until the end of December, but you'll want to get your name on the list now as it's first come first serve! Lucy can't wait to meet you!

About me:

Hi guys! I'm Lucy the Wonderbull! But life wasn't always so wonderbull to me... When I was a little puppy, some people bought me from a pet store and did not treat me very well. I was left in an outdoor kennel day and night with no interaction with my people, which made me sad. Then one day I guess they decided they didn't want me anymore so they dumped me on the streets to fend for myself. I was there for a little while and it was really scary. I got attacked by a big dog that made a hole in my side and left me scarred on my legs. After that happened, I was trying to cross the street and I got hit by a car :( It tore my leg muscles and popped my leg out of its socket, and I couldn't walk very well after that. Luckily the Humane society found me and gave me a bath and real food, and then they put me up for adoption! That's where my mom comes in. She had been looking at dogs for a long time and knew that she wanted a pit bull or mix of the like. Well when she saw me, we looked into each others eyes, and I felt safe. She petted me nicely through the bars and tickled my ears and I felt happy. Then I got to go to a play room to play with her and she didn't even care that I limped and was skinny. I tried to stay mellow while she petted me but I was still young and wanted to bounce around a bit. Well I guess she liked me because a week later, She came back and picked me up! I can't describe that feeling very well, but it's just so amazing when you find your human and you know you will be with them forever. And so far so good! My mommy gave me a new name, Lucy. (at the shelter I was Shorty and mom said it didn't fit me) She said I deserved a new name because I was getting a new life. And boy was she right! She took me to the vet to get all fixed up and I didn't complain to them either. Then I got a nice warm bath, and when we got home, she let me go INSIDE. I had never had that before. Never been able to sleep in a warm house with blankets and towels and nice smells. At first my mama put me in my crate in her room, but when I whined a little bit, she let me sleep in bed with her :) that made me happy. I still play in my crate but mama's bed is my bed too. I am soo happy and grateful that I have the life I do, because I see soo many others like me, who are just as nice and want families just as much, that don't find them. My dream is that one day every dog will have a warm blanket and a mommy or daddy to sleep with. And I'll fight until that happens.
