    Avitable, the buy now link doesn’t work for me. Feel free to delete this comment after you’ve read it…it says failed to get certificate.

    I think you were…I was able to get in and buy some of the graphics :)

    And it’s charging shipping and handling, which Avi says he’s working on. Not that anyone’s going to read this comment before saying something.

  9. bluepaintred
    Friday, June 22, 2007

    It worked. And didn’t charge shipping and handling.

    Thank You Avitable. It’s not much but it made me feel like I was doing something useful for Dawg and his family

    This is a great thing y’all are doing for a friend.

    The whole PayPal thing worked perfectly for me.

  20. Hilly
    Friday, June 22, 2007

    I made it work out with the new bank account and will post this on my site and link back to your post.

  23. Sodapop
    Friday, June 22, 2007

    Hey Adam, when I purchased mine, I accidentally left my friend Steve’s information up in Paypal. So if you see something from kirk@concernd.com or something like that, it’s me, the :loser:

  24. Poppy
    Friday, June 22, 2007

  36. Tug
    Friday, June 22, 2007

    Blog done also…I copied & pasted, because I couldn’t say it any better than you did.

  37. Bonnie
    Friday, June 22, 2007

    Did what I could. I hope this helps to ease some of the stress, if not some of the pain.

  45. Michael
    Saturday, June 23, 2007

    Adam, am awesome and thoughtful thing you’re doing. I did a sticky post too to link to this one to get some more support.

    Makes all the piddling little things we moan about at work just pale into insignificance.

  46. Kat
    Saturday, June 23, 2007

    I didn’t know Dawg, but knew of him from Mr. Fab.
    This breaks my heart. I can’t even imagine his loss. :(

    I “bought” 2 graphics, and will spread the word.

  47. Virginia
    Saturday, June 23, 2007

    I think it would be nice if we could get updates on the amount recieved. It could drive more people to help if they see the outpouring and how much we all love Dog. I’m spreading this to everyone I know, even people who don’t know him.

    Again, thank you Adam. We don’t always get along but this is a great thing you’re doing.

    Oh, and I’m also linking here in my post of today.

  51. Misfit Duck

    I am speechless. I did a little post linking to here. I just don’t know what to say…

  52. Avitable
    Saturday, June 23, 2007

    For those of you subscribed to comments, I have just uploaded a new post with updates.

  53. apricoco
    Saturday, June 23, 2007

    I didn’t know NYC Watchdog and had never even seen his blog. But I come here occasionally although, I have never commented. Dave2 at blogography never asks for anything though, so I donated.

    Thanks for being the catalyst.

  54. Mathew James Didier
    Saturday, June 23, 2007

    Thank you for doing this… we have purchased one of the graphics and we will put it on our blogs for the next few days… I’ll be popping over to express Sue’s and my condolences.

    Again, thank you for doing this.

  55. Mathew James Didier
    Saturday, June 23, 2007

    Had to buy a second… they are on both Sue’s and my “personal” blogs… “Life in the Urban Zoo” and “The Double-Decker Bus Blog”.

    Thanks again…

  56. Karen
    Saturday, June 23, 2007

    Saturday, June 23, 2007

    I come by way of Mr. Fab. As a parent my heart goes out to the family. I have “purchased” a badge and will post on my site as well. This is a very honorable gesture and it makes me proud to be a part of this blogging communtiy. Please let me know of anything else that can be done to help.

  58. Gino

    Saturday, June 23, 2007

    I saw this on The Bell Pages. Badge bought, I’ll be writing a post too.My kids went swimming yesterday with a neighbor, and it chills me now to think that something could have happened to one of them and I wouldn’t have even been there. My heart is aching for Watchdog’s family.

  61. Fantastagirl
    Saturday, June 23, 2007

    Thank you for doing this – Hubby was here and bought our badges – linked this post today.

    My 6 year old goes to the pool twice a week with his daycare – it chills me to think….thank you.

    Saturday, June 23, 2007

    You said if we want to donate more than the $5 for the graphics to email you – but I don’t know your first or last name. Can you email me the info so that I can send more than $5. Thanks. And sorry but I’ve never been here before so I don’t know who you are but I read CP’s blog and if she says you can be trusted, then I trust you.

    I worry about my two sons in Iraq and this poor man won’t see his son grow up. I stand ashamed.

    Donation made.

    Why am I a cartoon man w/ a beard? :banghead:

  66. Virginia
    Saturday, June 23, 2007

    teebopop, you can increase the quantity on the donation page to donate more, in $5 incriments.

    Jo Ann, you are getting the default avatar because you’re not registered. If you register you can upload your own avatar.

  67. Tug
    Saturday, June 23, 2007

    Jo Ann, do not stand ashamed. May your sons come home safely.

  68. Poppy
    Saturday, June 23, 2007

    Jo Ann, I agree with what Tug said. Everyone has different badness in their lives. Having loved ones in Iraq is also very hard. Thanks for sharing, and for donating. I hope your sons come home safe and sound.

    Tug, (((hugs))) for being such a sweetie. :heartbeat:

    Jo Ann back again. I registered so I’m hoping I’m now a woman w/ no beard.

    Hey, I’m still a man with a beard.

  74. Poppy
    Sunday, June 24, 2007

    Jo Ann, it takes some time for the photo to feed from Gravatar out to the rest of the internet. Be patient, soon enough you’ll no longer show up as Avi.

  75. Dawn
    Sunday, June 24, 2007

    I don’t have any use for a graphic (since I don’t have a blog) but I thank you, A.

    I thank you for letting me be a part of the giving to someone who had so much taken away.

    I just donated the 5.00 but I used a different e-mail than what is on my blog. The paypal address I used was kelly.savage@sbcglobal.net. I will be putting up a link on my blog. I just didn’t want anyone to think I took a button and didn’t donate!

    My heart and prayers go out to the Dawg and his family!!!!!!!!

    I purchased 5…and I would like to donate them to anyone who has a blog or site to post them on, but can’t afford to give right now. I don’t have a site to post them on, but I wanted to help. I came here by way of Shelli @ Shelli’s Sentiments, so the buttons are working! You’re doing a great thing, and restoring our faith in humanity…God Bless.

    Unfortunately, I did not have the opportunity to read this man’s blog before today.

    The story broke my heart and it is obvious this family is enduring incredible pain.

    I have made a donation also

    I just made another post asking people to contribute before it ends tomorrow. I just gave again, and it’s not a lot, but it’s as much as I can spare right now. I’m glad this has been turning out so well.

  96. hot coffee girl
    Sunday, July 1, 2007

    I donated again. I hope we pass $3500. This still breaks my heart.
