The Pedigree Adoption Drive

February 13, 2008

cj2Did anyone see Martha Stewart’s Dog show on Feb the 7th? I thought it was a great show, and am happy that she’s supporting Pedigree’s [Dog] Adoption Drive. There’s a lot of ways that you can help, and not all of them involve giving money. You could be part of the Million Dog Mosaic by uploading your dog’s photo. A $1 donation will be made for every photo that’s uploaded.

There’s so many dogs out there that need homes. I would encourage anyone who wants to get a dog to adopt. A lot of people want specific breeds and think the only way to get that breed is to go to a breeder. But there’s a lot of breed rescues out there, even purebred breed rescues. We got CJ from the Mid-Atlantic German Shepard Rescue. While I think every home should have a dog, it’s not for everyone. It’s not easy and it’s not cheap. If you’re going to adopt a dog, please be aware of the responsibility and the financial commitment. And make sure you get the breed of dog that fits your lifestyle.

There have been a couple of cool stories in the news about dogs and soldiers. One dog travelled 70 miles through a war zone to be reunited with a soldier he befriended. Read it here. The other story is about a soldier who died, but who’s family fought to have two dogs he cared for in Iraq sent home. You can read that story here.

I certainly wish I were home with my punkin right now. If you have a dog, please give him/her a little scratch behind the ears for me.

About Me

Welcome to my spot on the web where I talk about needlework, crafts, and [many] other random things.

A few tidbits about me: I met my husband in college, flirting over tuba letters in the Penn Band. Our dog, CJ, and our cat, Sabrina, round out our family. I'm a sewist, knitter and needlepointer, and an occasional scrapbooker. I love organizing, reading, making jewelry, and hiking. A Chicago girl at heart, I am an avid follower the Cubs, Bears, and Blackhawks.

You can email me at mlynapier [at] pobox [dot] com. Thank you for stopping by!

My Etsy Shop

A place for me to sell my handmade goods. My style? It's fun and funky with a hint of romance.
