WOW! What a day...
Today was the Breeds in Need/Meet and Greet at PetCo. Ma & I went early to set up. When we first got there, the Greyhound Rescue was there. I met Frank and Sasha. The man is really nice, too... Ma sees them there from time to time, but this is the first time I met them!
So we set up and soon, our friends and fellow TSWR Volunteers Bree and Lori came with Rex and Arrow to be ambassa-dogs. Arrow was with us the last time in the other Petco and Rex is my friend now from a few TSWR events we've been to together!
Quite a few people stopped by our area checking out the "pretty gray dogs" and let me tell you all something...
We got all kinds of petting and raised alot of donations :-)
One lady asked what the "Donation Dog" vest was so Ma explained that if I am walking around, people can tuck money in the pockets. She said I was like a stripper! Where's the pole? Then ma told her I give new meaning to the term "lap dance" (WTH??!!) She got a big chuckle and proceeded to tuck a few bills... in the jar! (Ma thinks maybe she felt funny "tucking" them in my vest)
And Da of course, was there working, so he paraded me around in the store and I did all my Demo-Dog tricks. And I got a FIVE tucked by a little boy who begged his mommy for $ to donate!
...I work hard for the money; so hard for it honey! BOL
Honestly though, now I am pooped. I am so tired that I can't even muster enough energy to put my head on the bed!
It was fun day and a great cause. I can't wait to do it again.
