KATIE: I just came to find out if it's really true.
WAFFLES: Whaddya mean?
KATIE: I mean are you REALLY going to do the #IceBucketChallenge?
WAFFLES: Yeah! I think it will be really COOL!
KATIE: It'll be cool alright.
KATIE: Uh, yeah... NO.

Hazel McFluffyPants, a feline friend from Facebook, called upon us to take the #IceBucketChallenge. We were thrilled to comply. Though I think Waffles was hoping for more of an ice HOCKEY challenge. And before our ice even melted, we made a donation in Waffles' name to ALS. So far, the #IceBucketChallenge has raised over $88 million dollars and the number keeps climbing. We think that's pretty COOL. Ice-cold-COOL!
SO... Who's Next???
We want to invite any and all of our friends - feline, canine, human and otherwise - to join us in taking the #IceBucketChallenge. But to make it REALLY INTERESTING, we're calling upon the cats and goats of a certain Montana ranch... Ok, Pricilla! Ok, Luke! Ok, Harry and Sherpa! Game ON!
ALS was first found in 1869 by French neurologist Jean-Martin Charcot, but it wasn’t until 1939 that Lou Gehrig brought national and international attention to the disease. Ending the career of one of the most beloved baseball players of all time, the disease is still most closely associated with his name. Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. Motor neurons reach from the brain to the spinal cord and from the spinal cord to the muscles throughout the body. The progressive degeneration of the motor neurons in ALS eventually leads to death.
Uh-oh. There's gonna be some wet goats around the FarmReplyDelete
Waffles, you are too cool for words!!!ReplyDelete
I live in fear someone will tag me. The woman would go broke as she hasn't a clue how to make a videoReplyDelete
We shiver at the thought of warm water, much less ice water. We are really glad that this challenge has raised so much money for ALS research and assistance.ReplyDelete
Darn! I was hoping to take the ALS challenge but my human has to postpone my first bath here because I am getting spayed on Thursday. (One piece of ice in the rinse bucket would count, wouldn't it?)ReplyDelete
Dood, that was pawsome. It's the best challenge we've seen!ReplyDelete
Have a wonderful Wednesday!
Gweat posty. And a gweat cause.ReplyDelete

Hahaha!! Well done Waffles. We're going to share this so everyone can see :)ReplyDelete
Well done Waffles. We like that kind of dunk. Can't wait to see the wet goats and cats. Happy Monday to all of you.ReplyDelete
Good job, Waffles. And we like how you licked the water off at the end. :)ReplyDelete
Way to go Waffles!!!!ReplyDelete
We were kinda worried they were going to pour that over your head Waffles. We likes playing with the ice in water.

Great job Waffles.ReplyDelete
That was pawsome Waffles!
Best challenge yet, Waffles! Now that's how it should be done!ReplyDelete
Well done Waffles ! Mum is ready for ours (we were nominated at the same time) ! PurrsReplyDelete
Oohhh you are brave, Waff.ReplyDelete
That's the way to do it!! (OMG....the crickets)ReplyDelete
We like the way Waffles looks around to see if he is going to get into trouble...ReplyDelete
A local TV station's "weatherdog" was tagged in the ALS challenge. She got a Dixie cup of ice water poured over her head. She was a good sport :-)
Hope you’ve recovered from that ice bucket challenge cos I presented you with an award. Love that last little pic of you in the video. One of TW’s Uncle’s sons had ALS on the side of the family where she doesn’t know anybody.ReplyDelete
Yikes! No way JoseReplyDelete
Lily & Edward
Our daddy was challenged, but he declined; even though, Mom said she would do it to him while he was in the pool. He did make an additional donation to ALS. A very close friend has been battling it for 12 years. This is so unusual. We have lost other friends to it in less than a year. We can't wait to see what happens at Pricilla's. XO, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista JoReplyDelete
Good for you Waffles!!!!ReplyDelete
You are so brave Waffles..I am so proud of you buddy..ReplyDelete
Waffles, this is so cool. I'm so glad you were brave enough to do it. I'm really thankful that you modified it a bit for feline participation!ReplyDelete
Our mom's uncle passed away from ALS several years ago, so this is a cause near and dear to our hearts. Waffles, you did a great job with your challenge!!! Thanks for helping to spread awareness!ReplyDelete
