    Default Turning lemons into lemonade: Linus the bulldog memorial skate

    First, a big, giant, Linus-sized, thank you to everyone on the board for your kind words of comfort and support following the loss of Linus. I have read the memorial thread many times and have drawn strength from it over the last few days. I miss him so much.

    Some of you may know that my husband and I are avid ice hockey players and run a weekly adult hockey skills class in our area. As a tribute to Linus, I decided to organize a skate that offers a discount to any skater that brings us food, blankets, towels, and toys to class AND we will be donating all profits as well to the Arizona Humane Society.

    I wanted to start this thread to let everyone know how much I appreciate everything and to update it after the skate (which happens next Wednesday) to let you know how we do in Linus' memory. I hope we get a big haul to donate to homeless animals!

    Here is the flyer I put together...Linus was a big lover of stinky hockey gear

    Although the sadness is overwhelming at times, I hope I can do some good in Linus' name by giving back to needy animals and continuing to share what I learned from my time with him on EBN.

    Thanks again for all the support!
