I can't stay wordless today because something SO lovely happened yesterday that I have to share it.
You may have seen on the right hand side of my blog that I've been promoting the 2011 Pedigree Adoption Drive which aims to raise £100,000 for UK rescues that help abandoned dogs. I know our friends Sue and Song have also posted the button which enables you to take rescue dog Ripley for a virtual walk and raise £1 every time towards the grand total.The Lady of the House also wrote about the scheme on her Lost and Fond website.
Yesterday a lovely little black box arrived in the post tied up with a yellow ribbon - and inside was a Limited Edition pet ID tag with a unique number on it. While the Man Of The House fixed it my collar, the Lady Of The House read the enclosed letter.
It said that the tag was a little thank you and that if we emailed them with the number of our tag before November 11 they would add ANOTHER £40 to the Pedigree Adoption Drive total on our behalf!! So we did.
Look how proud I am of my new tag!
You can also see me and the other dogs and owners who have helped spread the word at Pedigree's We Are For Dogs Facebook page. You can also follow them on Twitter at twitter.com/wearefordogs
There are more than 126,000 dogs abandoned in the UK every year - and remember, compared to some places we're not THAT big a country.
The Pedigree Adotpion Drive is nearly over, but you can still join in wherever you are and take Ripley for a Virtual walk to boost the total, which according to the site stands now at £92,944.
Thank you Pedigree for organising the Pedigree Adoption Drive 2011 and for my smart new tag. I will treasure it always.
