Hello to all the humans out there! I haves a question especially for you today.
Has your life ever been touched by a senior doggie or kitteh (or bunny or birdie, for that matter)?
Well, if the answer is “yes,” then I’ve got a super cool amazing contest for you to enter!
If you’ve been reading my bloggie for awhile, you might remember that a few months ago I helped my furend Shady and her Mom judge their “This Good, That Bad” writing contest.
Well, I’m so very much excited cuz they asked me to helps them judge their NEW “Good Life” writing contest. It was inspired by a book called “Old Friends: Great Dogs on the Good Life.” by Mark J. Asher. In this most wonderful book, senior doggies talk abouts the secrets to their longevity. Secrets like:
“Lift and pee, lift and pee, lift and pee on every tree.” – Tonto, age 12
“Never let little dogs with bows in their hair get the best of you.” – Kelsey, age 11
Shady and her momma run this super terrific company called This Good, That Bad. And what they do is helps raise awareness abouts animal issues through the sale of t-shirts and magnets and stuffs, and then they gives a portion of their proceeds to rescue groups.
So now they wanna helps remind everybuddy about all the Most Terrific qualities of senior pets and encourage peoples to adopt a senior doggie or kitteh. And that’s why they’re doing this contest!
You could win some super amazing prizes like a signed copy of Mr. Asher’s book, a cash donation to your favoritest non-profit rescue group, This Good That Bad merchandise, and lots more! (Click this linkie to see the full list of prizes.) And you’ll be helping get the word out abouts the specialness of senior pets!
