Couch Occupation GRAND FINALE and COMMENT-A-THON for Houston Pittie Pack

This post is dedicated to Guero, Coco Chanel, Lucky, Tiger, and Shelby who lost their lives in a fire on Thursday night. We will be donating .50 for every comment left between now and Sunday at midnight to the Houston Pittie Pack family. We know this will not bring back their beautiful dogs or home, but we hope it will help in some small way.

You can also make a donation directly here. This family lost EVERYTHING, please give what you can.

There are days when it is difficult, if not possible, to keep smiling. This is one of those days, but in memory of our dear, brave friends, I am going give it all I got and I hope you will, too! Regional Operatives take it away! 

Kansas: Who knew that pink mice have a fondness for couches! Thanks for the tip, Allie!

Florida: Hey Amber, move over. Sorry, no can do, Max, I am the star of this show.

Undisclosed Location: Sally and Alien spreading the couch potato word. No officer, I did not put them up to this.

Florida: Can't we all just get along like the DaWeenies??

Idaho: It's cuddle time for Baby Rocket Dog and Hootie. Sorry, no room for peeps. 

Scotland: When he's not out and about solving the world's scientific mysteries, Bertie likes to kick back and relax on the couch.

Utah: Couch, what couch? It doesn't get much cuter than Bert!

California: Coco The Princess never leaves home (or the couch) without her security team. P.S. Coco is also hosting a Comment-A-Thon for our friends so PLEASE STOP BY!

Florida: Couch King Roo rules the world and his orange blankie. Just try and take it away from him!

Massachusetts: Dexter believes in double the comfort, double the couch!

Florida: Douglas is all ears just in case an uninvited guest tries to sneak through the front door.

Ontario. Canada: Fred and Gloria celebrate the holidays couch potato style. Is there any other way?

United Kingdom: After a grueling day of leaping stairs in a single bound (and making me tired just watching him), George the Lad likes to stretch out on the couch.

Utah: It's a tough job being both handsome and super smart, but someone's got to do it! Right, Goose

The Great Catnip Field/Chew Bone Stash in The Sky: Jenny Anydots and Laurence the Wool are supervising the protest from above!

New York: Kelly on a much-needed break from her book tour. It's tough being famous!

Massachusetts: The one and only, MANGO! Nobody does couch occupation like this big guy!

Colorado: I love cheese, too, Brudder Ranger and Mayzie. Sniff, sniff ...especially when I can eat it off the couch cushions. 

Florida: Nola, Boston, and Augustine three adorable peas in a pod - and the couch ain't bad either. 

Texas: Mango the Maltese Kiddo occupying froggie style!

New Jersey: TanQ and Kaida believe in establishing healthy boundaries. This side is mine, this side is yours.

Texas: Don't worry, Maverick, your kitty siblings are not around - the couch is ALL yours!

New Jersey: Prudence believes the holidays are about sharing. How nice to let your human sit on the couch on this special occasion. 

Alaska: Show that couch who is boss, Razzy! Give it a little scratch! 

California: Now, I am no couch expert (well, maybe I am), but I am thinking this couch is not big enough for both of you. One couch for me, two couches for Bart and Ruby NOW!

Australia: Yes, sweet Rubie, recliners are just as comfy as couches - though I have heard from reliable source that you have a couch AND a recliner all to yourself! WOW!

Texas: Ruh roh, Samantha and Clementine seem to have taken over Maverick's (see above) spot! Naughty kitties!

Missouri: Samba seems to be floating in a comfy couch wonderland! 

Virginia: Gretchen Greer likes to pretend Sissy is a couch! Seems like a good arrangement to me!

Missouri: Sky seems to be enjoying the same couch wonderland as Samba. These porties have it made in the shade!

Minnesota: Oh look, sweet Stella brought a pal to the protest! There's strength in numbers, my friends!

New York: My yorkie bro, Steve, has arrived on the scene and he has some serious junk in the trunk. Note to self: do not make Steve mad!

United Kingdom: I think it may be past little Tess's bedtime. Somebody cover her up  before she catches a chill. 

Missouri: Do you think I can pass as a portie? Move over, Tsar, I am moving in!

United Kingdom: Yes, I think I could fit right nicely in that space! Thanks Uji, Izzy, and of course, beautiful Ronnii.

Oregon: Dearest Tweedles, could you maybe use some of your magic bubbles to bring me a couch. I am awfully tired ...

Wait a minute, there is a truck pulling into our driveway ...and now two big guys are walking up to our front door ...are they undercover agents, CIA operatives? Oh no, they are opening the back of their truck ...are they going to haul my yorkie butt to jail? Should I hide or bark? Help!

to be continued ...

Note: If you sent in a picture and did NOT appear in any of the posts, please let me know ASAP so I can include you in a follow up post. Some of you sent in multiple pictures, but because of the number of pictures we received we could only post one. Thanks and please start commenting!!



oh man Pip... you've staged a paw some movement across the world!!!!! dude u rock!

That is an awesome post! Congrats on all the hard work you put into it! How great of you to be supporting the Houston Pittie Pack Family. My heart goes out to them.

A MilShelb Mom said...

Wow! Lots of furiends get to sit on the couch! We spend most of our day on our couch. Mom thinks it belongs to her. Dumb dumb. We also noticed many of our furiends have some nice couches we'd like to have. DaWeenies have tons of room and that's a good thing since there's so many of them! We think you're a great furiend to do this for the pittie pack!

Madi and Mom said...

Morning to my sweet dear buddy!!
What a kind thing you and your peeps are doing for the Pittie Pack.

Mom and I think that maybe your Occupy Couch has touched every single corner of every square mile in the entire world!! Well done as only Mr. Pip could do.
Hugs Madi and Mom

HoundDogMom said...

Pip, thanks for putting this together it was so much. So great to donates green papers for comments to the Pittie Pack. I am still in shock after seeing your post late last night. I was off-line all day and missed everything till late. My heart is just breaking for this family. Sniffs, The HoundDogs

The Island Cats said...

Wow! There's some major occupying being done today!!

Mr. Pip, it's so great that you are having a commentathon to raise green papers for the the Pitties. What a horrible tragedy. We purr for them.

Bouncing Bertie said...

We didn't know the Pittie Pack, but we are horrified to learn about the terrible fire, and want to support the commentathon.
Oh and by the way Pip, I'm NOT A GIRL!

PS Gail and I have noticed that several American readers assume that Bertie is a girl's name. In the UK it is always a boys name, but we're guessing that is not so in the States? I am named after the P.G.Wodehouse character Bertie Wooster.

Shea, Lola and Tucker said...

Great post! Thanks for helping The Houston Pittie Pack, such a tragic thing.

Bouncing Bertie said...

Hey, thanks for making the change!

ArtemisiaFSS said...

Loved all the Occupy the Couch Movement pictures especially the bookend pups and Mango oh Man who knew he would even fit on a couch. I wanted to participate but I is not allowed on the couch and for some reason when Mommy wanted the cats to get on the couch so she could take a picture they didn't. Arty likes to sleep under the couch but that picture is boring cause all you see is our couch. ~Fenris

We are all very sad about The Houston Pittie Pack. We had followed Shelby's rescue and pregnancy and were thrilled that she had a loving home, so sad that she and her siblings had to go to the bridge in such a horrible accident.

Anonymous said...

Oh, Pip, I'm SO glad you did this today! I think we all needed a smile and this postie most certainly did the trick! I HOPES that truck was pulling up with a new couch! Or...maybe it was loaded up with CHEESE! Either way, I bet you'll be happy.

Wiggles & Wags,

steve said...

I'm with Mayzie there... Could the truck have bacon? We will occupy anything for bacon and cheese!

Our hearts are with the Houston Pittie Pack - thanks for hosting this comment-a-thon in their honor.

Thank you for doing this for the Houston Pittie Pack. I read about this all over the internet yesterday and have been thinking about them nonstop ever since.

Good grief Pip - do you actually know all these dogs and cats?? And if you do, how in the heck do you keep 'em all straight in your little head? I would be totally lost (as usual) and can't rely on my asst. because she can't remember what she had for breakfast most days.

Nice touch making this a way to get more $ for the Pittie Pack. Makes me want to go make another donation...

dw said...

Pip, those Occupy the Couch pictures are fantastic! I haven't been keeping up because I was without a computer for a few days...but did you get a couch yet??? Last I saw you were in the blue tape square with a dog pillow - so not a couch! (It's nice to see that just because you're not a 'city' dog anymore, you haven't lost your urban attitude! You'll still visit the city, right? It's way cool and I'd love to get a chance to meet you!)

On another note, what you're doing to help Sandra and her family is so thoughtful! I'll be contributing on the ChipIn, too, but will do that when I get back from vacation and am on a secure server.

Beth said...

Love this post! Thanks for sharing with Sandra who has lost so much.

What a show of solidarity! I'm sure that Sandra's pack is at Rainbow Bridge, barking their approval.

That's what we do in our blogging community. Stand by the side of those in need. Whether in humor to make a point like Occupy the Couch or in times of incredible crisis like the disaster of the Houston Pittie Pack's firey loss, we come together in solidarity. Thanks for the comment-a-thon, my generous friend.

We were so sad to hear about the fire and the loss of so many sweet doggies all at once. We can't even imagine how their people must be feeling!

Guero, Coco Chanel, Lucky, Tiger and Shelby all made the journey to Rainbow Bridge together, and that's comforting because it's good to have companions when you're on a long trip.

We only just met Pip recently through mutual friends on the Tweetie and sent in a picture of our old pals, Jenny Anydots and Laurence the Wool occupying their cushion in the kitchen to support his protest. Both of them are at Rainbow Bridge and we've alerted them to be on the lookout for the Houston Pittie Pack pups.

Thanks everyone who is putting together the fund-raising for Sandra and her family. OurPeople chipped in and will be doing so again in January & February. We are sending love and soft purring from RainbowCatsx8 ~ Annie, Julie, Chin, Rocket, Zhaan, Pom, Daisy and Freddie
