We just had to take some time out to be part of this very important campaign, The Pedigree Food Drive.
We heard about it from our hard-working friends over at Life With Dogs and we hope you'll help spread the word.
Each year, four million dogs end up in shelters and breed rescue organizations in the USA.
So Pedigree created The PEDIGREE Adoption Drive to help shine a spotlight on the plight of these homeless dogs. All you have to do is click on the Like button on their Facebook page and Pedigree will donate a bowl of food to a shelter. So far they have over a million clicks. So let's help make that two million for all the dogs who are less fortunate than we are and need our help.
Also, for each blog that posts about the PEDIGREE® Food Drive through September 19th, PEDIGREE® will donate a bag of their new Healthy Longevity Food for Dogs to shelters nationwide. It’s simple: Write a post, help a dog.
Pedigree Canada is also hosting a food drive. For every view of their Adoption Tales, Pedigree will donate $1 CDN towards helping dogs in participating shelters across Canada – up to a maximum of $50,000 CDN in 2010.
Here's one of their videos:
So far, $25,804 has been raised. Let's keep it going !
So if you're like me and you rely on human help to post to your blog, I urge you to give your human no peace until they help you participate in this most important food drive.
When your write your post, be sure to link back to Life with Dogs like we did above.
n n nPapa Update: Papa is about a quarter of the way through his Inteferon treatment. It's a stinker. It makes him feel really sick most of the time. His doctor lowered the dose to give him a break for a few weeks and he felt a lot better. But now the dose is slowly increasing again so he'll get full benefit and he's feeling icky again.
He's still not able to work but goes to his office sometimes to do some paperwork and see his colleagues. He walks me every day and does some of the grocery shopping for Mama. He's a real soldier.
Our life has changed so much but it will be worth it once the treatment is over and Papa will be healthy. And don't you worry - I'm giving Papa lots of snuggles and lovies and I'm taking very good care of him.
Thanks to all of you who keep us in your thoughts. We appreciate it so much. And hopefully, when there is more time, we'll get back to visiting all of you. We love you very much and have not forgotten any of you.
And in case any of you have forgetten what I look like, here are some photos taken of me over the summer.
On guard-en duty.
Playing with my girlfriend, Miss Princesse. She wants to get engaged.
She gives me my space, see? I like that.
Enjoying a good steak bone.
In the pool with Daniel. Did I get off the floatie ? Nope. I am too scared to swim ... however, if I wasn't so scared I'd probably be a really good swimmer, don't you think ?
Playing with my ball on the ground .... much safer.
And here I am with my new step-brotherpuppy, Jaxson. He's a blue-eyed Silver Retriever. He's not much fun yet. In fact he's a pest. But I have lots of plans for us when he gets to be a bigboy dog like me. We're going to have so many adventures together. He's just taking so darn long to grow up ...
Bye for now, all my friends. Sending you big butt wiggles and slurpy kisses.
