What are you doing next weekend [UK]?
There is a wonderful event, Paws in the Park http://pawsinthepark.net/index.php on Saturday and Sunday, 17th and 18th September
and our very own Tania will be there with her support team, with her stunning stand offering advice and help, and selling the most amazing range of Cavalier goodies [you can have a sneak preview at some of the available goodies here http://cavalier-gift-shop.org/index.php
It will also be the first chance to see the Cavalier Talk 2012 and Puppy Talk 2012 Calendars!! They will be available from the shop from Monday 19th September. :jump::jump:
Tania had a stand at Bermondsey Street Festival last September and raised a magnificent raised £745! http://www.cavaliertalk.com/forums/s...ighlight=stand
This was followed by Discover Dogs November 2010 where an incredible £1000 was raised!! http://www.cavaliertalk.com/forums/s...=discover+dogs
topped by £1,040 at The London Pet Show - Olympia May 2011 http://www.cavaliertalk.com/forums/s...ighlight=stand
July 2011 a stand at a local Fun Dog Show - in the rain - raised awareness and sold some more goodies!
SO with all this considerable experience and after a HUGE amount of work by Tania sourcing and obtaining goodies, and preparing for the stand, we have high hopes for a big total from Paws in the Park...no pressure there then! :lol:
It's not just about raising money though, but raising awareness of the health conditions that sadly our beloved breed suffer from, so that people can go into obtaining a Cavalier armed with the knowledge to try to source a Cavalier from health tested parents and responsible breeders, and are aware of the conditions their companion may suffer with, ensuring that they can then get the veterinary treatment they need.
A very special http://www.pbase.com/trevorhughes/im...4/original.jpg to you and all your team, for everything you do.
Anniemac kindly posted this previously and I think it deserves reposting - a poem to volunteers:
"Valuable is the work you do,
Outstanding in how you always come through
Loyal, sincere, and full of good cheer,
Untiring in your efforts throughout the year **
Notable are the contributions you make
Trustworthy in every project you take
Eager to reach your every goal,
Effective in the way you fulfill your role
Ready with a shining smile,
Special and wonderful- that's what you are!"
