Zip was a little black lab mix who had been abused and was terrified of people when she first came to live with Mama's family... although she became really good friends with their parakeet! She and the parakeet would chase each other around and share each other's toys!
After a while though, she did become very attached to our Mama and her family, and Mama loved her very, very much.
Sadly, Zip died of cancer at the age of only six. It broke our Mama's heart!
Our Mama is broke right now but she did make a small donation in Zip's honor. We hope you will come to the PawPawty too! All you have to do is go to Twitter, and do a search for #PawPawty. Then, every time you want to say something in the pawty, make sure to incude #PawPawty in your entry!
And if you would like to make a donation, here is the link to the chip-in. It says the donation is for an animal charity in the UK... which it is... but the way that they're donating to Save-A-Pet is, Pedigree is making a matching donation. Whatever is raised for the Animal Welfare League in Queensland, that same amount will be donated to Save-A-Pet!
We just wanted to let you know because we couldn't let this go by without making a mention of it, in honor of our long lost big sister Zip!
Wasn't she beautiful?
