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!
