Mostly for Portia, Stacey and Steven... but if you love cycling/dogs/the Tour of MO than please read.

This past July, federal authorities broke up the largest dog-fighting ring in U.S. history. It ensnared people operating in five states, including Missouri, where the Humane Society of Missouri took in over 400 dogs rescued from the ring. But with so many dogs coming into their care at once, the MHS sent out a plea for donations. ..This is where you come in! 100% of the Tour of Missouri print sales and raffle "e-tickets" will go to the Missouri Animal Cruelty fund. These contributions are greatly needed for the care and rehab of hundreds of mistreated animals.

So MODogs is holding a raffle during the Tour of MO. With prizes being things from famous racers Like Levi Leipheimer and Floyd Landis. Tickets are 5$ each and are sold until the end of the tour (which is tomorrow? sunday??) It took me awhile to figure out how to buy a ticket. In the lower right hand corner there is an "add to cart" feature.

I figure this is my way to give money directly to a group saving dogs AND also a way to thumb my nose at Vick again. Plus hello! I want to win a jersey!

Ok I bought some tickets but I'm telling you right now that if I win a Landis jersey I'm not going to be happy.

It's kind of a cold day in hell for me to be saying this, but: YAY MISSOURI!!
