Hi, Joker!  Good luck with your contest, hope you sell all your tickets and win lots of money to rescue more Boxers!

I'm not really into art except for one thing, a Boxer tattoo.  I have absolutely no artistic skills, can't even draw stick figures, but know exactly what I want and am picky, have asked a few people who are good at art and photography but haven't received any help yet.  So I am wondering if maybe one of the artists who contributed to your contest might be willing to help me with my design?  I would of course be willing to compensate them fairly for their work as well as make a generous donation to FSBR if you help me find someone to draw the picture I need for my tattoo.  It would have to be someone not only good at art but familiar with European style Boxers and correct Boxer conformation, and hopefully someone who has drawn a picture for a tattoo before.

Oh how cool Lisa!! I do not know who all the artist are but one of them is Stormy Ravenhawk....an extremely talented woman but there are several others as well...Briana and Charme have been in charge of getting the artwork together and I am sure that they would be more than glad to talk with you about the artists and your request.  Send them a message on FB and see what they can do to help you out...that is so cool and I would love to see the finished product for sure!!  :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

How do we get our tickets again? Was there a paypal account last time? I think I sent you the check, if I recall?
We're kinda tight right now, but would still like to purchase 6 tickets for the cause. Gotta help those boxers in need, whether we win something or not. ;)

Awesome! I did Paypal this time. I've been so bad with getting checks out lately, figured this way I'd be sure to get er dun!
We put in the instructions - "Joker sent me!" :thumbsup:

I did see lil Roxy. OMG! How sad! These cases just about kill ya. Who can do this kinda stuff? Seriously?! They can't be human!

No matter what we're going thru, there are still other boxers out there that need help and do not have anyone else advocating for them other than rescue resources. Those are the ones that truly need our help. So, I'm happy to do it.

Thanks so much Dawn!!   :thumbsup: You're the bestest...as Joker would say!  :smitten:  Poor little Roxy's former owners said they WERE treating her mange but just couldn't seem to turn it around so they surrendered her to us...not sure what they were doing but we have her now and we WILL turn it around for her...I see pictures of Bentley now and I just cannot believe he is the same dog...and he is just as happy as a little ol pig in slop and we can do that for Roxy as well!!  BUT we can't do it without folks like you who are willing to help out!!! Thanks from the bottoms of our hearts!!!

LOL...Joker is the FSBR Fundraising Cheerleader and that is his big claim to fame...giving "fwee Joker kisses" (as he calls them) with every donation!!!   :smitten: Thanks again and we hope you win!!
We just took in a new little "Joker Boy" with double eye patches today...he is part of a neglect case and weighs just 23 pounds....I swear I will never understand how people can starve these sweet babies....
