Arrival Story:
Mom found me on Petfinder looking for Cane Corso Italiano rescues. Two months later, they brought home me: "Asia", after much hassle from a certain rescue. They gave me an Italian name to both start my new life with and get back to my roots. Due to unforeseen circumstances, my mom adopted me out to another family who loves me to pieces and I'm so happy!!

I was surrendered with my 'brother', after our owner was put in prison. So we were told. He was adopted first. I'm the epitome of how you can't judge a book by it's cover: I look mean, but I'm a sweetheart! My mom has found me a new home which I am loving. She's going to hold on to my Dogster page to keep up with all my old pals and post any new photos my new family sends!

Forums Motto:
Thanks for rescuing!

The Second Annual Adopt Stroll and Contest!

You can start submitting your photos to the stroll and for you pups that weren't adopted or belonging to pawrents not active in rescue, you can start pawmailing Gibbon and I your written entries, details of both are listed below:

Who can enter?
All Dogsters are welcome!! Dogs who have been adopted or have parents that are active in rescue can enter just a photo. Those of you don't fit either category are more than welcome to enter, but we ask that you, in addition to entering a photo in the stroll, take the time to post somewhere on your page: whether it be a picture caption, a diary entry, or one of your bio fields why you support adoption. It can be a sentence or a book, a poem or an essay: as long as it's on your page! But you MUST p-mail myself or Gibbon so that we know that it is on your page for the contest so we can let our judges know.

What's the Deadline?
Pictures must be entered before Monday, May 14 th @ 6pm Dogster time. Yes! It's a month long! I mean c'mon, it's a big deal! *bol*

Can I enter more than one picture?
Only one picture per pup. If you have multiple dogs, each dog can have one individual photo entered. Entering more than one photo can cause you to be disqualified!

What type of picture?
Photos must capture 'the good life'. Whether it's lounging on a comfy couch, playing fetch with your human or wrestling with your siblings: it has to show something great that dogs in their furever homes enjoy. It can be anything.

Pictures can be animated, edited or anything else to celebrate adoption and rescue but no special consideration is given for photoshopping!

What's the tag for the stroll?
adopt07stroll - tag the photo of your choice with that and make sure you check out the other entries!

Who are the judges?
There are about a dozen of us, with a tie-breaker or two in there. Gibbon and I are the only ones who have been revealed, but if you can track us all down, you'll get a surprise prize!

What are the prizes?
Check out the following list!

that's doing more than any other pup I know of to help out animals in shelters and rescues. Her name's Dixie. She's the bees knees. She spends all her free time sewing warm, cozy blankets for shelters dogs and cats, which is quite a feat I tell ya, being as she doesn't have opposable thumbs and all!! Not only that, but she's been gracious enough to donate more time that she doesn't have to helping out with the Adopt '07 stroll. Listen here, find me a better canine and I'll eat broccoli! I just don't think one exists.

She runs the organization Blankets for Babies, you know; the one with the big logo I have linked on my page. In addition to that, she has organized two contests for us Dogsters to participate in, with great prizes and of course, for great causes.

The 1st is Project Shelter Stockup 2007. Now, I'll admit, I'm a bit jealous that I didn't come up with this idea on my own it's so gatdurned great, but I'm glad I can help advertise it here in my lil' ol' diary. Now, all that has to be done is this:
Donate a few bucks or some toys or necessities to a shelter or rescue.
Or donate a few hours to one instead.
Notify Dixie of you're efforts and that's that. She'll enter a few times into the contest. The more you donate [and that's not monetary, we're talking time and/or pennies if need be], the more entries you receive. And the end of it all, the winners get some grrrrrreat prizes! Now this here's a list of all the prizes being offered up:

Sassy: $50 to shelter of your choice
Cherokee: $50 to shelter of your choice
Dixie, Ally, and Chelsea,: $10 5 blankets to shelter of your choice 1 rosette for each winner and 1 for the 2nd and 3rd places.
Sparky: 1 rosette for 1st, 2nd and 3rd places.
Prince Brutus:
1st place- a rosette, $10 to their shelter, and a blanket to the Blankets for Babies in their name.
2nd-a rosette and $5 to their shelter
3rd- a rosette
Clover offered $50 to shelter of your choice
Shiloh offered $50 to shelter of your choice
Sammy offered 1 star for the winner of the most entries.
1 rosettes for each of the other winners (total of 2)
1 rosette for 2nd place
1 rosette for 3rd place
Daisy Mae CGC offered:
3 rosettes for 1st place
2 rosettes for 2nd place
1 rosette for 3rd place
Roxie Doxie has offered a matching leash and collar to one of our winners.
Shaela has offered a winner $25 to the shelter of their choice....
Princess has offered a winner $25 to the shelter of their
Scottie has offered:
1 star for the winner of the most entries
2 rosettes for 2nd place
1 rosette for 3rd place
Tessa Lee has offered:
$10 for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place drawing (total $30)
Copper and Trixie Beaglesworth offered $50 to a first place winner
Kathryn from http://www.bealsstudios.com has offered a gift certificate to a winner for a portrait done!

And we have a MYSTERY PRIZE offered generously by a pup who will remain nameless. You'll LOVE it!


Aint that just somethin'? Just tickles my fancy to know that there's such a great pup among us! But that's not the end of it! Now Dixie has started a raffle, with all proceeds going to benefit Blankets for Babies. Here's what's being raffled off:

A wonderful painting done by Kathryn Beals
A custom portrait by Ms. Texas Belle's Dad, Pete
1 large basket full of doggie toys and treats
3 smaller baskets full of doggie toys and treats
1 basket full of "mommy" treats
20 blankets donated to the winner's shelter of choice
40 pack of zealies
1 Dogster Plus Membership


Now tickets are only $5 and those portraits for @ least $200 a pop! If that, and the fact that's going to help pups in need isn't good enough for ya, I don't know what ever could be! I suggest that all you pups looking for a good deed to do take part in these events. Think about all the critters that'll be mighty grateful for a good long while!

*listening to Lynyrd Skynard and hearing the good ol' country name of Dixie brought back my Carolina accent, so you'll have to mind them southern colloquialisms. Believe me, I won't be posting nar' 'nother entry like this!*
