Thankful Thursday: The DogDave Edition


It could be the twitter in me, but when I think of Thursday, the word Thankful always comes to mind. (#ThankfulThursday) I'm thankful for the incredibly supportive BB Community.

While I'm waiting for BB to wake the HGs, I want to tell you about someone I've never met in person, but who had the kindness and generosity of spirit to help launch BBDish some 9 seasons ago on his own very popular site, Aldavs, which later became DogDaveBB..

He didn't know me, he never met me, we'd never exchanged so much as a single written word, but there I was, a featured link on his page.. and people started coming from everywhere.  For those of you who've been with us here on BBDish from the beginning, there's a very good chance that's how you found us in the first place.

Fast forward to a few weeks before this season began.. No one can find DogDave.. Dingo and I both try contacting him through various means, and nothing.. Then last week, Quirkydude texted me, "DogDave had a stroke a while back and is in a care facility."  Woah... Awful! Just completely awful.   I call Quirky and he tells me that DogDave cannot speak or write, but he can understand.

I DM Dingo over on Hamsterwatch, and she's already working on setting up a donation page where his fans and supporters can show their love, and hopefully help defray some of the overwhelming medical expenses he and his wife now face.

Here is an excerpt from Dingo's post.
Needless to say, the medical bills have cost a fortune and money's tight.. there's a lot of fighting in our BB community but we come together when one of our own needs help.. a Paypal account has been set up for donations if you're willing and able to help: BB4DDave@yahoo.com - every penny donated will go to him.. your good thoughts and prayers are obviously very much appreciated as well.

DogDave is how I found you many years ago. I honestl couldn't tell you how long I have been reading your site. Quite possibly since the beginning.

That is so sad about Dave. I wish him well. I miss his snarky comments and hilarious observations.

He isn't how I found your site, some 5 years ago, but I do know who he is from my on-line travels, mostly through your account.

This is so sad. My heart and prayers go out to him and his family.

I hope he is doing well and I wish him health.

I personally know him on a casual basis and have been worried about him ever since I had an awful dream awhile back about him. Got scared even worse when his site wasn't up.
I will gladly donate to help with his expenses.
He was a big help to me through the years.

Oh yeah I did find your site through him. he highly recommended that I read it because you were fair in your treatment of all HG's and did a great job.

He was right.
