Wonderful NJ Girl Scouts Carol for the Animal Shelter


So busy during the Holidays… buying presents, going to parties, worrying about what to wear, hoping for special gifts, a little nagging worry in the back of the mind about parents and money.  Look what a troupe of wonderful Girl Scouts in New Jersey did… they took time from their busy lives to carol for donations to the local Animal Shelter!  

On Monday, a note in all mailboxes (perhaps they targeted dog loving homes?) on the proposed caroling route announced the Friday night event.  The shelters need: 

* food of all kinds (half opened bags are OK)

* used blankets, quilts and towels (clean please)

* pet toys (used-but- not-abused are OK)

* pet comfort products (paw cream, sweaters)                                                     

The girls showed up on time, sang “Jingle Bells” and “Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer”, took pictures with Raja, hugged all around and then whisked our bag of fleece throws and greenies into their following mini-van.   They next day, they dropped it all off and played with the shelter dogs. 

Aren’t they flat out wonderful?! 

So back to the list… technically these items can end up in the local shelter even if your local girl scouts have targeted other charities this season.  Just load them up and tote them over.  OK… please?  You know you’ll feel warm and fuzzy immediately after.

To keep you in the know about Raja’s Travel Dog Schedule: Raja will be spending the Holidays at home en famille and shortly thereafter he will go on his annual ski trip.  Where will he go to ski? For every blog fan who posts in a guess this week, we will donate one can of primo Blue Buffalo dog food to our local shelter.  Paw to heart, we promise.

The NJ Girl Scouts are wonderful. What a very thoughful and fun thing for them to do. We are going to share this idea with a girl scout friend here, who knows maybe her troop can start a caroling for pets tradition here in Michigan.

Hmmmm, you must be going somewhere not too far from home, could you be going to Vermont again?

Your pals,

Happy Holidays to my athletic, agile pals!

Judi, you are SO right! Snow will be involved! Thanks for posting in… One more can of Blue Buffalo! (Readers we aren’t in cahoots with Blue Buffalo… but it IS a good brand and we want to give the shelter dogs something nice.)

We have always said girl scouts are pawsome!!! Such a sweet idea.

We think you’re going to Canada to ski…maybe combined with a visit to some of our dogster pals???

Thanks Diz and Harley! It’s not Canada, although I love Canada and some of our best Dogster pals live there! One more can of BB for our shelter friends!

What a wonderful idea for the Girl Scouts to do. Those animals deserve some nice things, like the Blue Buffalo!! I don’t know where Raja is going skiing but I would suggest that he comes to Michigan–then I could see my friend!! Skamp is guessing Maine???
Where ever it is, send us some photos!!
Puppy Love,

Aunty Rhea and Skamp, good guesses and I wish I were coming to see you! But I’m not skiing in Michigan or Maine this Holiday. Two more cans of Blue Buffalo thanks to your two guesses! Xoxo, Raja
