Talking Thorin is a "Pin-up" boy

The Alberta Cancer Therapy Subsidization Society (ACTSS) asked if they could use Thorin in this years Calendar. We told them we would be honored to have our beautiful boy be a part of the campaign!! I bought a bunch of em, but 100% of the proceeds go back into the organization to help pets with cancer (they help all pets... rabbits, ferrets, rats, cats and dogs), so it's a wonderfully worthy cause

They did a great job on the calendar! But then they always do. I'm just partial to this years

They do a lot of fundraising events. The Halloween party and costume contest is "The" big one.

That is a very nice writeup and Thorin makes an absolutely gorgeous December Pin-up boy.

Thanks all!! I think they did a wonderful job. Thorin is such a special boy

Melinda, hubs is pretty special too, definitely a "keeper"!! LoL

BIG 's to you all!

I will PM Marko and see if I can post the link here. He let me last year for their Halloween event (prior to us knowing Thorin had cancer and they would eventually be helping us ). I don't think this calendar is up on the website just yet. Our vet brought them with her on Saturday (she is a co-founder, I believe, and sits on the board), so we got a sneak peak and were able to buy them early

Oh, and December is very fitting for him, it's his birth month. He was born on Christmas Day, 1999
