It's a magical
time of the year. Lights are going up, garlands are being hung,
presents are being shopped for and wrapped and everyone is getting
dressed up for parties and toasting in the holiday season.
I can't bear
thinking of these doggies and kitties, who love us so unconditionally,
and yet who suffer from neglect and poverty. It breaks my heart, and I
just want to shout to the rafters: "Please help!"
I know so many
of you are avid supporters of our work, and you appreciate all the
animals we save, horses and sea lions and wild raptors -- and of course
the dogs and cats. You encourage us as we identify grantees who rescue
and rehabilitate animals -- especially senior babies. Your words and
your dollars are so very important and so very appreciated.
We also know
there are some of you who may feel your small contribution will not go
very far, but I am here to say, even the smallest donation, when
combined with many others, can help us achieve so much good! We have so
many plans for DDAF, now and in the new year! But we need your support.
please consider a gift to DDAF today -- no matter the amount!
Together, we can
work to make it a magical holiday for the least among us: the
four-leggers in need.
Thank you, thank
you, thank you for your generosity!

Fan letter received from Judy in California...
Just stumbled upon something that would interest you and
the rest of Doris's fans (assuming you all don't already know about it). It's a youtube of her V-discs with Les Brown
during and immediately after WWII. I
found 5 of them, but the one I liked the best includes brief comments by both
Les Brown and Doris. If you search for
"Les Brown Doris Day V-Disc 412," the V-disc starts with Artie Shaw's
band -- but the comments begin at about 5:30 and precede their recording of
"Take Me in Your Arms." I had
only ever heard Doris's 1952 recording, but this one is from 1945. (The other V-disc numbers are 5l5, 600, 814,
and 824.) Would like to share this info
with Doris Day web forum, but I don't know how to do that.
