Team BelDou raise $510.00 for the RSPCA!!

Posted in Outings, Uncategorized with tags , , , on May 15, 2011 by beatricebella

Hi all! This is a quick news flash to let all those wonderful people who sponsored us know – our mission has been successfully completed! We joined thousands of other pups today in beautiful warm weather to complete our Million Paws walk. As you can see there was a huge crowd…

There were pups of every breed on show, some were even dressed up! We took this pic especially for Team BelDou sponsors Stephy, Kelli & Henry , and Roxy & Chai…SNAG DOG!!

Dougal’s favourites were the Great Danes, one barked in his face and he nearly jumped 10 feet in the air!

We only saw four other vizslas, all youngsters like us (sorry Gigi no pics – but thanks  so much for sponsoring us!) Also sorry Assi, Seymour, Suki and Pansey – there were no kitties allowed. This was so sad as we lub kitties so much!! (what great sports you cool cats are to sponsor a couple of pooches anyway – thank you!). (We did see a piglet on a lead visiting the shops on the way home…WHAT THA!!??)

Here we are above about 10 minutes into our walk – the doggies stretched for miles! Of course Dougal had a fit of nerves and decided he needed the…..*ahem*,  “facilities”, about 30 seconds from the start…how embarrassing!!!

Here we are at the finish line! We had a great time and raised $510.00 to help animals in need! YAY!! Thank you so much to the generous sponsors of Team BelDou – you have really made a difference! We dedicated our walk to my beautiful loving sister Sophie – Soph we were thinking of you!

Let’s walk baby!

Hi all! Exciting news – for the first time ever Dougal and I will be participating in the RSPCA’s annual Million Paws Walk next Sunday May 15th! I am soooooo excited – last year I was still a baby so I had to stay home…

This year I’ve set a big goal…to try and raise $5,000.00 for the RSPCA!

For those of you who don’t know who the RSPCA are you can read about them here. ‘Cause I’m naughty (tsk tsk!!) I lifted this straight from their website “RSPCA Qld is a non-government, community-based charity dedicated to protecting the welfare of all animals – great and small. Approximately 40,000 animals depend on us every year and we depend on your support and donations to continue our life-saving work.

So…no pressure people – but you can sponsor me and Douges by donating here – or you can use the same link (or the one on the right hand column of the blog home page) to check out our fundraising totals! It’s all for a super-great cause -the money raised from our 3 kilometre walk goes straight to the RSPCA to help them do their very important work looking after sick, injured and abandoned animals, helping lost animals find their homes and championing the rights of animals to live healthy, happy lives!

If you live in Australia you can join a walk in your capital city or a town near you or even set up your own fundraising page like we did – just check out the RSPCA’s website for details.

So c’mon – walk with us next Sunday or donate now  people – you know you want too!

Hi everyone – hope you all had the most wonderful Easter! About 2 months ago we mentioned mum and dad were off to Japan for Easter. We weren’t supposed to know about the trip but found out via Gigi who gave us a quiet tails up that secret plans were afoot for us to stay with her while mum and dad were away. Long story short D and I spent every day since we heard about their elaborate ruse concentrating really hard on subliminally willing them not to go on holiday without us. Here’s a pic of me in action applying my amazing zen powers of vizsla concentration…my mantra – “you will cancel the Japan trip and take us to the beach, you will cancel the Japan trip and take us to the beach“…

Well what can I say people…all of my transcendental focus paid off!!  …behold last week…Japan trip cancelled and HELLO Easter beach holiday! I give you the glory that can only be Hastings Point people…enjoy!

Escape to the country

Posted in Outings with tags , , , , , , on April 8, 2011 by beatricebella

Hi all. Hope you’re well and you’ve had a good week. Thought tonight I’d post some pics of our recent mini-escape to the country – we went to a place called Stanthorpe which is on what’s called “the Granite Belt”, part of the Great Dividing Range here in sunny Queensland. It’s very beautiful as you can see, and we had a great time – except for the brief interlude Dougal had with a barbed wire fence…at speed (ok ok I may just have been chasing him!). Anyway as you can see below it certainly didn’t damage the little show-offs looks! As usual I’m in the purple collar & Dougie’s is black…

Also stay tuned over the weekend to see if mum and dad buy us a backyard! Yes that’s right people – they are going to a funny thing called a house auction tomorrow. Unfortunately we have to stay home & miss the excitement – but we’ve already inspected the place & given it a big claws up (well we don’t exactly have thumbs people!). Anyway paws crossed everyone – with any luck this time tomorrow night we’ll be the proud owners of our very own grassy speedway circuit – see ya later dog park – hello sweet dig-able lawn!!
