Meet Falco.

Well... We have an annual whip lottery, in which everybodey can participate. And the money for the tickets goes - exactly; to the doggies. And to avoid any possible "misunderstandings" - with an official contribution receipt...!

  Meet Falco.

Post by Robby Amper »

Ladies and Gentlemen...

let me introduce to you - Falco.

He is in desperate need for a surgery. Otherwise he would simply die. I called the shelter and told them that there is - again - some money from Whip Basics on the way. When I told them, that it is 800 Euro and 44 Cent, they were sooooo happy. Because that money makes the difference between life and death. I know that we can't help all those animals. But at least we do something.

Thanks to all of you who donated.
Thanks to all of you who bought tickets.


As I wrote - Whip Basics is such a small community. And we made 800.00 Euro
There are other forums and other groups. They simply did nothing.
If doing something for a good cause - in this case a dog shelter - is elitist...

Then we are elitist. And I'm proud of being elitist that way!

Wow, what a beautiful dog!
It's nice to be able to see how the money goes to such good use.
Thanks for letting us know and making it real Robby.

It's ok if you disagree with me.
I can't force you to be right.

I'm not more important in all that than anyone else who donated or bought tickets.
The fact that we have members who donated whips and bought tickets, makes
everyone special who was involved into this. Some did not donate, well. Some did not
buy even one ticket. Perhaps next year.

Thank you, Ron!

Beautiful fellow right there. Thank you very much, Robby. We donate a little work and time, and a little money here and there. It adds up to a Real and tangible difference that can be seen and felt by another, such as Falco. Thank you very much for showing everyone just what this does.


Look at those big beautiful eyes and tell me it's not important!!!

Falco is a beautiful pup, I'm glad we were able to help him.

To those who weren't able to, or decided not to, contribute this year, please think about doing so next year. Anyone who has a dog knows, they are perhaps the most loving of creatures to exist, and these poor pups don't have anyone. They need help
Now and then we had a hope that if we lived and were good, God would permit us to be pirates.

Thank you Robby for sharing this. It makes the whole thing more "real".

I'm sure to be helping next time.

Hi, Falco! I'm glad we're going to be able to help you get better. What a great thing!
I'll give it a try, Dad, but it's going to be really hard...kind of like trying to saw something in half using a banana.

What a beautiful dog! Glad that I was able to help in some way make his life better.
Here's wishing you find time for the things you want to do, and for the things you need to do.
We see ourselves in our children and hope for a better future.
