Dogvice Spokesdog of the Month
The "Dogvice Spokesdog" for the "food raiser" campaign running from February 1st to April 24th, 2009, isn't a celebrity dog, it's over 6,000 celebrity dogs! The campaign goal is to raise 6,000 cards so that we can get 3 TONS of Nutrish food to homeless dogs. Each week, a different individual dog from the group is going to be a celebrity Spokesdog on all of the 4 sites collecting cards (Dogfessions, Dogvice, Pugfessions/Pugvice, and Bullyvice/Bullyfessions).
WHAT IS A DOGFESSION??
Dogfessions are "dog secrets" written or typed on 4x6 postcards or photos that people decorate (or help their dog decorate) and snail mail to Dogfessions for posting on this site. Why? It's fun, you can win prizes, and $1 for each Dogfession received goes to helping homeless dogs! Your dog may even appear in the next book, helping even more shelter animals.
WHAT IS A DOGVICE??
The Dogvice cards themselves are decorated 4x6 postcards (or anything that’s about the size of a postcard, such as a photo or paper that you trim to size) that includes advice from a dog, and then snail-mailed to the Dogvice mailbox. Why snail mail? We’re a low-tech operation here at Dogvice -- a girl, a laptop, and a mail box.
There’s a monthly contest where your dog can win stuff just for giving good (or bad or funny or strange) advice! Finally, every participating Dogvice card received goes to helping shelter dogs. The Dogvice site itself does not make money -- sponsors pledge money or products to help rescue dogs for each card received.
Dogvice can be practical, philosophical, funny, weird, or thoughtful. Dogvice should be meaningful (and sometimes frivolous) and come from a dog’s own experience. Dogvice comes directly from the DOGS.
Here’s what’s considered Dogvice:
Advice from your dog to dogs in general
Advice from your dog to humans in general
Advice from your dog to a specific dog
Advice from your dog to a specific human
Advice from your dog to the world at large
Advice from several dogs to whomever
Dog wisdom or insight from an individual dog (the dog “talking” from experience)
Smart, original, witty, and/or deep or inspirational quotes from DOGS, unique to the individual dog.
Send as many Dogvice cards per month as you like, and write your name and contact info on the back of each to be eligible for the contest. CARDS MUST BE CREATIVE AND ORIGINAL TO QUALIFY FOR THE CONTEST AND THE CHARITY CAMPAIGN. Your name and contact info will not be posted on the site, just your cards. It’s recommended that you put your Dogvice cards in an envelope to protect them, and you can put more than one in an envelope. Use paper, photos, and arts and crafts supplies -- anything you need to get creative. Help your dog with the scissors and glue stick please.
