Qannik Gives at the Office

As we mentioned last week, our good friends at Sarge’s Animal Rescue Foundation asked us to lead the annual Downtown Dog Walk August 7 at 10 a.m. in Waynesville. Accompanying the press release was the following photograph of Qannik at last year’s dog walk:

Concentrate, concentrate.

Ok, ok, at least the people at Sarge’s know exactly what they have invited to represent them.  We thought of lots and lots of possible captions for that picture, but don’t want to distract you from the big Walking with The Herd Contest! The rules are at this link and the entry form is HERE (Feel free to share those links on your blog).  Enter the contest to win a t-shirt of you walking with The Herd as we lead the big parade.  Checks and forms have been arriving at Chez Herd all week and we can’t wait to see who wins.

Please!

We have already raised enough money to pay for Sarge’s food bills for one month.  One whole month. Last year, Sarge’s rescued over 2,000 dogs and cats.  Imagine what they will do in 2010 with your help!

    Great cause; and great team to lead the parade. I love that Qannick is just himself, totally comfortable, no pretense, no fancy aires! Already sent in our entry will post a link on our blog.

    What a story and so wonderful that you lead this special walk, Herd! Just staring at the envelope I just addressed to you and will mail off as soon as Mom decides to really “get up” this am! Again, we’ve been late with our comments – my assistant/Mom has no idea how to balance her life with two puppers now as well as my blog and HER life (pffft – hey! It’s all about US!) – but we don’t know HOW you do it! Mom needs some pointers!
    Big Hugs xoxoxo

    Don’t the paparazzi always wait until the most inopportune moment to snap the picture??

    The parade is going to be so pawsome! What a wonderful cause!

    Congratulations on this huge honor. Thank you for making it an even bigger and more meaningful event.
    I will be spreading the news.

    Qannik, it just figures that when you become a celebrity, there’s always some photographer hiding in the bushes, just waiting to catch you in a compromising position! We can’t wait to hear about you all walking in that parade. It’ll be the best the city has ever seen!

  20. Mr Koda MD on July 12, 2010 at 2:58 am

    Excellento! I’m super glad those cheques are going to go towards a worthwhile cause!

  21. Life With Dogs on July 12, 2010 at 1:24 am

    I am so psyched for you that you are able to do this – and so proud of you for turning it into something even better…

  22. Khyra on July 12, 2010 at 1:06 am

    I’m moved beyond words and then some!
