This is our dog, Seamus:
Seamus is part of our family because we walked him in the Wiggle Waggle Walk a few years ago. The Wiggle Waggle Walk is an annual fundraiser for the Pasadena Humane Society, and a few years ago after our dog, Ferris, died, Anne and I formed a team to raise money for pets in her honor and memory. Readers of my blog contributed so much, our little team shot to the top of the contributor’s list, and PHS asked us to walk a shelter dog at the event, as a thank you.
Seamus was that dog, and we adopted him about a week after we met him.
Two years ago, Anne and I were at PHS to see how the expansion they were building at the time was going (as donors, we occasionally were invited to see how our money was being spent). While we were there, a staff member brought a beautiful little pit bull puppy who I immediately fell in love with. We adopted her a week later. That little puppy is now fifty-six pounds of snuggle named Marlowe.
Marlowe and Seamus quickly became the best of friends.
Here’s Marlowe, on her first Wiggle Waggle Walk:
Here’s our oldest dog, Riley, who says I’M A DOG!
We had so much fun at the Wiggle Waggle Walk, and PHS has brought so much joy and love into our lives, we’ve made it an annual commitment to give back, by raising as much money as we can to help them help animals.
Last year, Anne put together a wonderful celebrity pet adoption calendar to help raise money for Pasadena Humane Society, and to encourage people to adopt pets instead of buying them from breeders.
Here’s the video I helped her make for it:
Lots of people loved the calendar (if you own one, you get to see us with our dogs all this month!) and we ended up raising a little over $50,000 for Pasadena Humane Society.
This year, she did another calendar, with all new people, like our friends Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting, Ed Brubaker, James Gunn, Tricia Helfer, and my space mom, Gates McFadden.
Here’s the video I helped her make for the 2015 calendar:
If you’d like to get one of your own, and help us help PHS help animals, go to teamwheaton.org and make a contribution of $40 or more. We cover all the costs with our foundation, so 100% of your donation goes to PHS. We will ship worldwide, and we can only offer one per household, because quantities are limited.
Thanks for supporting our team, and thanks for helping animals!

The “This message could be a scam” warning is back in gmail. I find this odd because I had mentioned it about a year ago, you acknowledged it, stuff happened, it went away. I don’t know how long it has been back or if there just something about the content of this particular post.
Anyways, congrats on the big bucks last year. That’s some serious coin for a human society. On a slightly different note, has Marlowe gotten smarter hanging out with Seamus or still just a poop-eating machine? He’s got the cute factor down for sure.
My gravatar is Sam. He was adopted when he was 9. At 13, he won world’s ugliest dog, and at 14, and again at 15. I think Sam and his owner Susie are cool. Props to Anne, you, and everyone else for supporting PHS.
My gmail does that too, always has…
Okay all donated. Enjoy the walk. You might want to use the new Trek leashes from Entertainment Earth. My cat got a Capt. Kirk dish for Christmas…
Those are sweet, happy dogs, and no wonder!
You seriously have some of the cutest dogs!
I’ve had my pound puppy for almost 11 years now and seriously think she is one of the greatest things to ever happen to me. Pound puppies really are very dear to my heart.
Massive anti-cat conspiracy going on here 😉 Only Mrs. Helfer seemed to have
And that’s why she’s the cutest page…
Team Wheaton is a bit closer to their goal now. Thanks for all you guys do for your local Humane Society!
I have an important rule, never go to an animal shelter unless you are ready to bring a new family member home.
My own pound puppy looks like Riley. Alot. Now I don’t know if I should donate money to you or to my local shelter!
Still loving this year’s calendar, just donated to get next year’s!
You put a wabbit in this year! A wabbit! Whee! 😀
Oh, and lookie there. The foster dog is whining because she doesn’t know how to dog yet. Off I go! Thanks for helping, Wil and Anne!
I’ll be back to donate later and such. Iron Guard Salute
PEOPLES OF THIS GOOD LAND!
If 5% of Wil’s followers donated just $5, then copious amounts of money can be raised (or donate $40 for a super mondo bondo awesome calendar)!
The proof is in the numbers:
Twitter followers: 2,710,000
5% = 135,500
$5 each = $677, 500
I hope it goes well. Pets are something special! My kitty puts up with all this… at age 16.
So, I donated in memory of my beloved bubster, but didn’t see a place to put the name of the participant, though I did donate by clicking a link on your fundraising page. My receipt doesn’t say Team Wheaton on it anywhere…
