Happy Friday Friends! Are you ready for a few announcements!? We have been looking forward to sharing not one but two news with you!
Valentine is coming up soon so we thought we would do a little contest. So get your cameras and pet(s) ready and show us your best Valentine’s photo! Any pet can take part, dressed up or not, it doesn’t matter. Just show us the love ❤
You can post your photo on our Facebook page, Instagram or Twitter and we will add it to our Valentine Contest Album on Facebook. Please add name of the pet, age and one or two fun facts about him/her. Feel free to like, comment and share on your favourite photo over the next 2 weeks. It isn’t the number of likes which will determine the winner but our panel of judges! So you better be nice to them! Let me introduce them:
Me Lily – tough but fair! I will look for originality paired with some fun photos.
Dixie – the eldest of the judges. She might look like she’s sleeping but don’t let that fool you. She always have one eye open to keep an eye on you. Life full of experiences and will be looking for the beauty in every photo.
Milez – Felix’s very near and dear friend. You might remember him from The Bachelor Doxie Edition so he has great experience in looking for love. His expertise will come in handy when we need to choose a winner!
Qutie – Felix’s twin separated at birth or so they say! Known as Qutie The Queen or Qutie Queen Drama Ween so you can be sure she will have her say in this contest. She walks the bark!
The winner will be announced Friday February 13th! The winner will receive a beautiful piece from the talented Stained Glass Artist Jason Turner from Under The Umbrella.
And Jason and Under The Umbrella leads us to our second announcement! Here’s our statement:
“The Doxie Press and Under The Umbrella have joined together for a very cool fundraiser to help Thank Dog I Am out. Jason from Under The Umbrella is selling handmade, stained glass Doxie items and paws and $3.00 from each piece sold will go to the fundraiser. You can pick your own colors and have the items shipped anywhere in Canada or the US. Shipping rates are reasonable and you can order direct from the website or you can email Jason. Website is http://undertheumbrella2014.weebly.com/the-dachshund-home.html and you can use PayPal to place your order. If you want to use another payment option, please email Jason at email@example.com
Please add The Doxie Press in the comment section so Jason knows the order is part of the fundraiser.
Thanks for your support!”
We hope we will be able to raise funds for our local rescue who we featured back in November here on the blog. Read more about them here. They rescue dogs from kill shelters with only days to live and foster and adopt them out here in British Columbia.
If you wish to help them out and at the same time own one of Jason’s beautiful stained glass pieces, go to the website http://undertheumbrella2014.weebly.com/the-dachshund-home.html and place your order. Please include “The Doxie Press” in the comment so Jason is aware that it’s part of our fundraiser.
We look forward to receiving your photos for our contest and hopefully raising some money for Thank Dog I Am Out.
That’s how the kitty biscuit crumbles!
