Pedigree's Write a Post, Help a Dog 2011

The Pedigree Foundation and Pedigree dogf ood has, in the past, had a blogging program where any time a blogger wrote a blog for the program, 20 pounds of dog food were donated to a specific shelter. The program is called Write a Post, Help a Dog. Last year, nearly 400 bloggers participated, resulting in 7,820 pounds of dog food donated. Amazing!!! This year, the program is back, and I am doing my part to help. And I hope you will too! In fact, you can copy all the info below for your blog post!

How you can help in 2011

Simply spread the word about Write a Post, Help a Dog 2011 and once again Pedigree will donate 20 pounds of food for each blogger's post. Here's all you need to include in your post:

The Write a Post, Help a Dog program is aimed at raising awareness and food for the more than four million dogs that wind up in shelters and breed rescues each year.

For each blog post mentioning the Pedigree Foundation from now until midnight ET on September 3, Pedigree will donate 20 pounds of its new dry Pedigree recipe food for dogs -- its best recipe ever -- to a shelter, because every dog deserves leading nutrition.

The Pedigree Foundation -- a 501 (C)(3) nonprofit organization is committed to helping dogs by providing grants to shelters and rescues and encouraging dog adoption. This year the Foundation has already raised more than $376,570 against its goal of $1.5 million to carry out its work to fund grants that not only help shelters operate, but to further shelter innovations.

The Pedigree Foundation depends on charitable contributions from individuals to carry out its mission to help dogs find loving homes. In addition to writing a blog post, here's how you can help:

Bath and nail trim time....  Milo is not pleased, but has come around. Two hours later Dixie is still not talking to me.

It's the Weekend...

Let the good times roll(over)!

Any Pillow Will Do!

Even when it's a butt.

It's Sunday...

Rest up, cause there might be a surprise nail trimming to go with your bath from yesterday.

This is the picture...

Of a very happy dog!!!

Looky What I Found!!!

Mom wanted a peach milkshake so we gotta go on a ride!!

Woot!! Can't Wait 'til Friday

This is Milo... I just heard that USA network is showing a movie I have always wanted to see, but mom wouldn't let me watch cause of the rating. Now that it's on tv she can't tell me no!! I am going to pop my corn, get my kibble-aid & be in front of the tv for the network premiere of The Fast and the Furriest!

Wonder if Vin Disel will look like this??


Can't a puppy get his beauty sleep??

Scene from Sunday

Every dachshund knows the only thing to schedule on a Sunday is a nap
