Who knew dogs could clap?

Six years ago this month, I lost my best friend. He was 16, well beyond life expectancy for a dog of his size and breed. It still sucked. I’ll probably have another dog someday, but I’m not ready yet.

Thankfully, you don’t have to host a dog to help a dog. Today, I’m thrilled to be able to forward $22.77 in Amazon proceeds from stuff you bought in November/December 2014 to Emmylou Harris’ dog rescue, Bonaparte’s Retreat. If you’re feeling especially charitable, you can (of course) support Bonaparte’s Retreat or your local shelter with an individual contribution of your own.

Please do keep using Country California’s Amazon links. They cost nothing extra and give you lots of warm, fuzzy feelings when you see that you’re doing some good. You can credit the site with any purchases – not just music! – by clicking through a link like this and searching for whatever you’d like.

There’s already another donation set for late April. Thanks to a few larger purchases made this month, it will be the biggest yet. Purchases made in March will start showing up in May.

Thanks for being awesome. Dog applause for you!
