Sweater Day -Celebrating Stubby and The Earth


I have my sweater on because I am helping the Earth stay cool.
My moms and me are burning less pellets in our pellet stove on Thursday Feb 17.
That means less electricity too. We also are turning off some of our lights, and we just might burn candles tonight.
That means our house will be cooler. Our planet will be cooler.
But it's okay because I am wearing my cozy sweater.



Your friend and mine, Winston over at two cats and a pug invited us all to celebrate the life of Stubby and our planet. I decided I wanted to participate.

Stubby was all about having a GREEN EARTH. Stubby was all about teaching us to care for our planet the best way that we can.

On Winstons blog it talks about that today February 17 - The World Wildlife Fund is holding a National Sweater Day. We can show Stubby how much the planet earth means to us by wearing a sweater and turning the heat down by 3 degrees.

We all love the planet earth don't we?
We love the trees and sky.
We love the creeks and streams and oceans.

So everyone, go find a sweater and put it on and lets show our support in keeping our planet cool and healthy.


I know Stubby will look down from the brightest star in the sky
and see that we remembered all the things that he taught us.
We honour and celebrate you Stubby!


love
tweedles

I was waiting for you to show me what sweater you were wearing today!

Your little stone (or is it a mushroom?) with Stubby's name and "my earth friend" on it made me cry!!

We always wear sweaters and keep our house cool, so Stubby would be proud of us!

Thank you for reminding everyone how special you are, and for being such a wonderful friend to Stubby.

Awwww Tweedles you're the sweetest dog I've ever seen! Yeah we have to be friendly to Mother Earth or we're not gonna be able to play in the fernwoods in the future.

We didn't know about this, but you will be happy to know our heat is off! It is almost 60 degrees outside today, can you imagine in the middle of February! I don't even need a sweater! But I am happy to celebrate anyway.

Your pal, PIp

Hello my Little Friend and Your Mom's! I have worn a sweater all day and have had the heat turned down and while I didn't do it on purpose, maybe somehow I did! :-)

You look beautiful as always, and I love how you wrote your good friend Stubby's name on the mushroom to always have and remember....

Oh such a good idea dear Tweedles! I will definitely not turn the air conditioner on today! Just use my coolest t-shirt!

Joan said...

What a beautiful idea. We will help out, too. We love doing things that help save the EARTH. Green is the new black.

Hello my sweet angel!
That was yet another wonderful post. You are always in there trying to help out & your moms too.
You look fabulous in your little sweater but I can tell you are still feeling a lot of pain from losing dear Stubby. It's not easy getting over something that is such a huge loss to us. Hang in there sweet girl & keep sharing your wonderful stories with us. We all love you so very much! xoxoxo Aunt Diane

KB said...

I love your sweater, Tweedles, and I love the thought behind it. I cannot imagine a better tribute to Stubby.

We are a bit crazy all the time with our efforts to keep the earth from getting too hot. In fact, we are so crazy that we froze a pipe. So, we must be careful about that. But, even though I missed the actual day of the tribute, I'll take a short shower tomorrow and use some candles to participate.

We must preserve our earth. Thanks for reminding everyone Tweedles and for your tribute to Stubby.

Hello sweet Tweedles, You inspire us! We didn't know about the sweater day in time to participate but we intend to do it this week in place for the day we missed. The earth is very precious.

What a wonderful way to celebrate Stubby. You always do the best things and have kindest heart. Do you think there is a sweater big enough to fit Sammy? I know we can find one for Annabelle and Maddie! xoxoxo

Tweedles, you are truly a dog with a social conscience. May there be more dogs and humans like you.

In our part of this world we share, we will not accept plastic bags from supermarkets. We are a tropical country so we can't wear sweaters.

Tweedles, you look soooo beautiful in your sweater! It looks so cozy-warm, too!

Thank you for sharing this Sweater Day reminder with us. I am thinking of Stubby and his legacy and smiling in my heart. I'm telling Mama to turn down the heat and we will both wear our cozy sweaters today, too!

It's so good to see you and read your words.

I'll be whispering fun secrets to you from under Old Man Sweetgum while I wander the yard this evening... listen closely! :)

Love,
Melvino
