Thanks Donna the dogs yiu have brought to the memorial table are very special to saints so i would be happy to add them to the memorial table. I will add daphne to the GUMPTION table I think she belongs there for sure.


I need help naming the Piggie Table... contrary to popular belief... I am not very creative

Donna Brearley

I would like to contribute $30.00 to the Memorial Table in honour of Bill, Cole, Dexter, Michael, Tom, Lady Jane and Daphne (cocker spaniel). I would also like to contribute $20.00 for Daphne, the ball playing little daxie (I didn't see her name mentioned anywhere)
Please let me know via the blog as to which table she will mentioned at.
Sending a cheque for $50.00 via snail mail.



I have a name for my #11 table - SUGAR & SPICE
SUGAR for the diabetics- Angel,Casper,Dusty & Griffin
SPICE for Lucky(aka Cinnamon) & Reggie(aka Pepper)


Good idea Elaine. There is a couple tables with no names yet. We could get everyone who has a current Saint foster to donate.

Elaine Strozek

I have problems with my eyesight now so will ask. Is there a table for fostered dogs or cats. Joe is still alive and doing pretty good Let me know as I also have some donations for you. Will get a ride up Carol and put the money somewhere the girls tell me. Thanks Elaine


Xine I think there is a reason Frodo has his own trailer ... and perhaps a reason for his town table too. He is a ONE of a kind. The only animal at saints I think would fit with Frodo is Reggie, who is a dog because he needs to live alone too OR Miranda (one of the FeVL cats because she bits chins too ... but in a happy way. James B is a bit of a jerk so maybe he could fit.


Mauro - sorry, I missed that post! I think the honor of naming the table should go to you, since it was originally your table, or to Lory, since she also put in $200. Including Maude is a great idea.

For Table 17 - what about doing a "spirited SAINTS" type of table, to honor the animals that show spirit / attitude / joy in life despite being seniors -- include some of the animals that haven't yet been included like:

- Bibi (for having the, ahem, spirit to run up a mountain when he was unhappy - although glad that he seems to be over that!)

- Esther (for knowing what she wants [cookies!] and having the guts to ask for what she wants).

- Anyone else?


I would love to see Bibi and any of the other dogs not assigned to a table in "The Dog House" (ha! ha!) I didn't split the corp donation into names because I don't know all of them and with so many blogs I wasn't sure who was where. They all deserve a special mention, is it too much to add all of their names Jenn?


Can somehow other cats join Frodo while still acknowledging Frodo's separate entity?


why can we not have spritleys name in honor of the memorial table. he beat all odds and never gave up sort of a saints dream. just an idea. or there is cole or rosie just ideas.


For those who still need to name their table. The house cats need represented. There is kinda 2 groups the cats that mix with the dogs and the dog haters in the back room. Or you could do the young cats who don't fit at a seniors home Winter,Diablo, Ruby. Also Esther told me she needs her name to be mentioned at a table because there is FOOD!(I'm thinking the PINTA TABLE) Other house dogs that don't fit with the bed buddies are Bibi,Squirt,Max & Mandy.


it is FeLV...and there are FIV cats here too but i do not segregate them, they live with the general population because cat AIDS is transmissable in the same way as human AIDS which means deep blood contact only, not thru casual contact like sharing a drink of water or toilet facilities.

it is one of my pet peeves..FIV's getting knocked off early or stuck in with FeLv's to die early because of a stigma that is not really based in research or reality....just old fashioned and out dated knowledge of that not so transmissable disease.


Is it FeLV or FeVL? I see it both ways for Table 1. Are any of the FIV kitties invited? If not, can we make room for them at the FeLV table?

Amy Dalgliesh

Jenn, you are amazing to be keeping track of all of this. I agree with Helga, this makes me dizzy.

Amy Dalgliesh

Is everyone covered? I would love to make sure that everyone is acknowledged, as they all deserve to be. Gee, Carol, all you need to do is fit the stories on a table top placard...easy, right ;)?

Mauro Salles

** ANGELA **

Oh, Angela!! So sorry!! I wrote comment #100 in the previous topic, but it was "lost" and, in fact, was not clear ... ):

For me the name "Golden Oldies" is OK, and you, Lory, Laura and me can put the oldies together on table 2.

Three "problems" to solve:
=> What do you think of including Maude, many years at SAINTS?
=> What to do with table 17?
=> We need to establish limits on table 2, not to deprive others. (:


Colleen D, yup, i did trim Larry's nails. they were/are so long so i did quick him a couple of times.
Colleen (his new mom), you can bring him back up to saints for nail trims when i'm out as he will need them often to get the quicks to receed.


Yeah Mama Duck ... I like the name for the table too. I knew you would come up with something!!!

Thats cool Angela I will edit that ... do not fret about making suggestions we are all saints supporters and blog lovers here so I think everyone is open to getting as many saints at the gala as possible while raising as much money as possible, and as a bonus we are getting to know each other and the animals better too!!! I LOVE IT!!!!


Wow, what an incredible response! Just a note Jenn, table #17 isn't made in my personal name, it's on behalf of Pet Friendly Canada.

Mauro -- I hope I didn't offend you -- didn't mean to barge in and suggest that all the "oldies" get put on your table!


Thanks Laura!Mamma duck is happy! I've been on the phone for donations so I have another 75.00 for the Feathered and Fuzzy Friends Table(ducks/chicks/birds/bunnies)


Jenn, unbelievable that you can co-ordinate all this. Just reading the comments makes my head spin. Fantastic work.


Thanks Louise ...I will put in for $20 for the Felv table (with Rock) for you and move pam in with $10 (I had put her at a different table for some reason). Juls said $10 but actually put in $20 through pal.

Lynne & Scott

This is wonderful! I'm so excited at the response you've seen...

Please...more pictures of Bud. We have a soft "spot" for the Jacks.


Jenn, you asked if the amount for the Rock/Felv table was right. I did note I am showing $10 for Rock but on comment #20 (of original posts) I mentioned adding another $10 for the Felv table so not sure if you added that in. Also #23 Pam donated $10 for Rock but don't see her name listed. I see Juls #5 donating $10 for Rock but you list as $20. So maybe the grand total is only short $10? I can see why you spent 6 hours going over it!! very confusing :)


Since I didn't get a table for $200 and have only spent $100 so far I would like to make up the diff this way......$30 for Stripe cause she wouldn't want to be at the table and not contribute, $30 for Bailey to move off the Pain in the Ass table cause all he REALLY wants is to be at the GRAZERS TABLE! then $40 for the Duck Table because I sit beside Mamma Duck at work and she was sad that her table total wasn't that high.

Barbara T.

I have one of my own (puppy mill survivor)who while let no human near her except me, her name is Keavy and she is a Doll so another $40.00 coming to SAINTS on behalf of Andy and Dixie Chicks table.

Colleen Donnelly

I'm in for the name "The Grazers" for the table for the Goats, Cows, Sheep and Lahanie and Czar. Makes sense to me! What do you think Cheryl and Steph and Helga?


probablly because my math sucks ... let me add it agian haha ... nope your math sucks lynne :)

Juls I like the error :)


Hi all!
So great to see how quickly the tables multiplied and the money grew! I had said I would send in $10 for the Rock?FELV table, but I actually sent $20 via paypal earlier today...

:o) Juls


i ll put in $50 for little big bud at kodis table (or whatever its called now) for the fosters that were not to be. will put cash in envelope in reggies room next weekend


ANDY (out puppy mill survior) who will let no human touch him ... would be a perfect candidate for the Dixie Chick table in anyone is an ANDY friend.

Barb I will put the suggestion on the table.

Barbara T.

Consideration only - the Guardian Angel Table could be renamed the "Godparents of Saints" table.


no problem kim ... they can join their feathered farm bird friends and the bunny table.

Colleen Bridges

I will be out tomorrow morning and depending on how Larry settles in tomorrow night, I can be out on Sunday too.

Hey Nicole - did you by chance give unhairy Larry (Jenn that's awesome!) a pedicure today? If not, no problem. As long as he doesn't turn into a snarling fiend I can take care of it.


Matthew would like to buck in $20 for the budgies and the cockatiel. I don't think they have a table.


i put 50 coloured open house posters on the table in the mp room today. Julie will be picking up a bunch of them to distribute in M.R and Abby so feel free to take a few but leave some for Julie, please.

Barbara T.

Thanks Sheila:
Will be passing along mailing address to other offices and friends I work with.


I will have an envelope in the MP room office (AKA Reggie's appartment) for volunteers to put their donations in (please have your name attached and table etc. also mailing address and email adress please). Also I have TEN colored Open house posters so use them wisely .... they will be beside the money envelope which I will give to Sheila on tuesday at our Event Commitee Meeting.


oh i really like the idea of the dog house table. this whole thing has taken on a life of its own. howa great is everyone.


i would like to add 10 each for my friends lucas and champ. miss going for walks with them. oh that is for the memorial table. god if i gave 10 for each of the animals that were special to me i would be working for nothing.


Put me down for $20. for the Bunny Table. I hate PayPal, but I just tried to use it and I think I messed up. I'll keep an eye on it and if it doesn't seem to have gone through, I will send via Canada Post.


I'm posting this again in case it was missed: To "house cleaning volunteers" - I am coming on Saturday this weekend, NOT Sunday, so I'm hoping a few others will be able to come Sunday to cover both Lynne and I not being there. Thanks
Oh, and Bailey needs to be on the Pain in the Ass list with the others, Jenn

Barbara T.

I will be mailing another table sponsorship donation next week of $200.00, from one of the offices I work at, for the Guardian Angel Table.

To reconfirm the mailing address:
c/o 15570 58A Avenue
Surrey, BC
V3S 4N8


Finally Phoebe found a place to sit. While calling her a "pain in the ass" may be a little harsh (although sometimes she can wear out her welcome) it is nice to have her at the party.
And since the table holds the spirit of Phoebe put me down for $50.
Also how can I disappoint Frodo, my car cuddles buddy.
I will give $60 to his table.


My boss just donated $50.00 for the Pain in the Ass Table, as she has one of "those" dogs too and jumped at the name when I was going thru the various tables (Diane Z)


That would be the Pain In The Ass table just to clarify for my donation.


Finally the table I have been waiting for! Put me down for $200 and please add Phoebe's name onto that table! (sorry Tammy).


Correction Jenn: I'm in for $40.00 at the Blog Table, or wherever it is needed? - not $10.00. Re Colleen's comment: Yes, I think Perdy and Bailey should be there - both pain in the asses! aka (The Odd Couple). I'll leave my money tomorrow when I come.

Colleen Bridges

WOW ANN! Wonderful!

See I was just about to ask that Mandy and Max not be left out of the (mostly) blind table, but they will fit in The Dog House too.

Jenn - your call, but in light of the awesome donation that Ann got, if you want to rearrange funds I can move to support Jesse, The Pain in the Ass. Only because he bit me and I still want to be his friend. Should Bailey and Perdy be there? It would make Lynne happy :)


I have a corporate donation of $250 for The Kodi & Buddies table from J Bond & Sons, so how be we add on all the house dogs not mentioned so far and call it "The Dog House". What do you think Colleen?
