One of my relatives was looking at me in befuddlement this week as I sat at the computer at 1 in the morning, tap-tap-tapping away at the keyboard. “Why are you doing this?” he asked, looking over my shoulder at the pictures I was uploading for one of the auctions. “It seems like a ton of work.”
I nodded magnanimously. Truth is, I was sharing the guest bedroom with my mother and she was snoring so I would have been up anyway- so it was either raising funds for the Red Cross or playing Peggle. Every time I started to regret taking this on, I’d flip on CNN and immediately regret regretting anything.
If you don’t know what I’m talking about, I have a little bit of an explanation here. Short version is, buy some pet stuff and support Red Cross. That’s really the gist of it.
Now that all the auctions are live, I’ve combined the week of individual listings all into one massive gargantuan mosaic of awesomeness so you can gaze in wonder all in one peek. But to make your life easier, since it is one massive picture and list, I’ve placed it dramatically behind a jump.

All right people. That is 45 live auctions. If there is nothing at all that appeals to you there I just can’t help you. 😉 That’s OK though, you can still donate directly to your relief effort of choice and still have good karma.
YAY! I cannot WAIT to see the chew toy. I know James will thrilled with it too!!
I still have interest!
Prudence is very upset that I’ve been outbid on the Brody photo. She wanted it framed and placed by her bed. She has quite the crush.
I am totally interested in the PR doll. I want 3! One for my dog, one for my ex’s dog, and one for my mom’s dogs!!!
