I was thinking we could do this put the money towards cav rescue.The dogs would have to be picked from a hat to stop any unfairness.If someone found a printing firm to do a deal we could all buy the calanders for gifts etc etc.I would love one with all the members dogs on it ,it would be fantastic.

We had one done last year which was really nice. It can be fun to have members put in pictures for a competition for each month and then people vote; maybe exclude any pictures from being entered that were included last year. It would make sense to do this in two geographies if using one of the online firms as postage was very high to ship to Europe from the US. I have some printer contacts and might be able to sort a good deal at this end.

If people want to organise the images, I can certainly organise design and printing and then they could be sold through the site here. If finished early enough I will be back to the US a couple of times between Nov and Dec and could mail the US ones then, if printed here. I usually only bring a single suitcase (roll on) so could check a box of calenders. I have a Cav Talk shop partly assembled already (just commission sales thru Amazon etc) but also have long wanted to create some CavTalk items to raise some money for rescue efforts.

Great hubby thought it was brilliant idea,they can be any doggie pose,and we would need 12 dogs,maybe on the back karlin could list all the dogs names she has rescued.Right who could organise to start the pics of the dogs.we will need to tell every one then they could vote for i to win for each month.sorry if i sound bossy.But it is exciting.i would order at least 4.What size calander because sometimes they are to small and you cant really use them.i woudnt mind volunteering to be post lady,some calenders i have seen of animals have been at least 20 euro.

Justine,

Duncans_ma organised this last year - she did a great job. A poll was created for each month and then the winner of each month was used. August was a compilation of all dogs so that everyone had a "link" to the calender.

Again, I will be post lady for the Uk

Justine,

We managed to get a calender together and despatched in about 2-3 months last year. Our best bet is to start polls early.

Soooo EVERYONE START LoOKING FOR YOUR SEASONAL PHOTOS!!!!!!
Once the polls are up, we need a deadline , then get the .jpegs of the photos and get them to a printer. I think Shutterfly was the one used last year.

the hardest work is ensuring money comes in for those calenders requested.

Perhaps we do a poll into how many members want a calender and then see what response we get. This year we seem to have a few more active members also.

I'll try and set up a poll

Justine,

i've set up a poll to see who is interested. I've run it for 30 days from today to give those people who are on holiday a chance to reply.:D

Just a thought, but I know a lot of you have rescue dogs. Perhaps you could do a calander of these dogs to show how wonderful rescue dogs can be.

It may also get people more interested in taking on a rescue.

Only an idea.

Hi!

Oh I was cussing Crystal earlier! Baby Diamond was fast asleep on her back with her fat little pink tummy laid bare, I grabbed the camera switched it on and ..... Crystal decides to jump in the box and wake them all up for lunch!! :swear: Never mind, am sure I'll have loads more :snap: opportunities over the next few weeks!! :lol:

When do we start posting/entering :snap: by the way??
