I have to tell you all about my collecting for the Red Puppy Appeal last weekend!
I had an awesome time collecting outside supermarkets. I made a lot of new friends of all different ages, including a lot of small children. It’s so strange that humans can be that small but get so big! I know that sometimes people can be a bit scared of me, so I was very patient and calm waiting for my pats. I don’t mean to brag but it was very impressive. I’m starting to catch on that people going ‘aww’ means I’ll probably be getting pats. I’m clearly one smart puppy.
I also went to an office to collect, which was very exciting. I got so much attention I had to have a lie down half way through. I’ll tell you, being this gorgeous is exhausting. I met a working guide dog and made a special effort to be on my best behaviour. My puppy walker was very proud of me. I may be getting a bit cheekier at home, but I know there’s a difference between work and playtime. I’m so glad I was able to help with the appeal. A huge thank you to everyone who offered up their time for this very important and worthy cause. I’d love to give you a personal thank you if you’d like to come up to the Comms office. This will involve giving me more pats.
Besides raising money, I’ve been visiting university a lot this week. I even made a special guest appearance at a BLENNZ university preparation course. Just to make sure everyone knew I was still there, I waited until a pause in the talking to give the biggest sigh I’ve ever done. I was just being courteous to those who couldn’t see me. I’ll try and be a little more subtle in future.
Until next week!
