As we hinted the other day, Alfie has got together with @janejamesfineartist and @rinthegermanshepherd on an artistic mission.
We want to harness the power of the insta-dog community! It brings together a great group from all over the world, and it has led to some wonderful friendships. People have even travelled interstate and internationally to meet up. Amongst these Instadogs is our Alf. Alf and Jane have been friends all Alfie’s life and we all know how much he loves a stick, any toy or a good howl. You all may remember a story about Alf finding a stick after the floods here in Hobart. He was particularly attached to this stick and just would not let it go, Jane is also known for her love of sticks and seems to have developed a bit of a reputation for it as well, so those familiar with both Alf and Jane saw an opportunity...at the urging of both @bruno_and_gracie and @wellington.dingo it was done. ‘The Stick’ was immortalised in paint. So this photo is Alf and Alf’s stick.
We all felt that we could lend a helping hand and paw, and use ‘The Stick’ to both raise awareness and funds for charities, so we approached two organisations in Tasmania who both do wonderful work, @stay_chatty and @gsrtasmania were good sports, and agreed to be a part of this; and here we are.
So...we are open to offers. All the money will be split 50/50 between the charities with the winning bidder paying them directly. Let @janejamesfineartist @rinthegermanshepherd Fi on behalf of Alf - know your bid by DM, and we will keep a tally.
Please pass this on, through any social media platform or word of mouth. Let’s see if we can get as many people involved as possible. We will close the bidding on the 6th of August, and notify the winning bidder then, and @janejamesfineartist will organise the freight of the painting. Alfie says the original stick is also available as Mum has put it in a high spot...he is however, hatching a plan to get it back! Open internationally! Let the games begin!
Buddy - Yesterday the drive home after the beach ☀️💦🏖 just wanted some cuddles, he was so so tired after swimming all day & chasing the other dog friends..... but also classic Buddy the super scab scabbed some treats off a lovely family trying to train their golden retriever pup. Buddy kind of shoved another dog away from the puppy when the other dog got a bit too much then they played & chased, the pawrents then were trying to get their pup to come back with them & pulled out a bag of treats. WELL Buddy did everything those other pawrents asked their pup to do so they thought this was just the cutest & he got some treats. He was loving life & we tried to get Budd back but we lost him to those bag of treats & other pawrents until we actually had to drag him away 😐. A good day well spent ! #beachdays#buddy#lifeofbudd#buddydoeswhatbuddywants#beachlife#sundays#adoptdontshop#rescuedogsofinstagram#kelpielife#kelpiesofinstagram#huskysofinstagram#treatsfordays#dadsnotthatoutofshapeitstheangle
Thank You @fella_the_wonder_dog for nominating us for 5 fun facts #5funfacts . Buddy 1. Is a massive toy thief to any dog playing in the park or beach if he wants that toy he’s taking it. Boog 1. Loves his ball on a whole different level, if he could sleep with it I’m sure he would. Buddy 2. Has a double coat, he’s black on-top but separate his fur & he’s white under there (as you can see around his collar) this is the part husky that he is. Boog 2. Has a big scar on his chest bone & is scared of anything flapping in the wind so we think these two things are connected, we work on his flightiness each windy day, he is progressing in leaps & bounds. Buddy 3. Loves to swim, obsessed with water & pools & would swim all day. Boog 3. Loves to help with the washing, he carries what you give him to the washing machine & tries to drop it in there he’s just a little too short but he gives it ago. He also likes to help carry the vacuum & can turn it on & off. Buddy 4. Would stay inside ALL day if he could, he’s very much a dog of luxury & can be found up laying on any pillows even though he’s told constantly no. Boog 4. Hates getting in trouble he’s 99.9% a good boy everyday when buddy is been naughty he runs & hides or comes to get us, boog only has to be told once not to do something & he won’t do it again. Buddy 5. Loves to do whatever the hell Buddy wants to do, even though at times it drives us mad we love him for it & laugh constantly at him- when its the funny stuff, rules are made for breaking & Budd pushes that on every occasion no discipline works..... except the spray collar for his excessive barking which now has stopped. Boog 5. Is such a gentle little soul who loves cuddles & wrestling, he’s such a sweet little dog who just wants to play & please. We love our boys so much 💙 we nominate @narlah.the.kelpie @buddy_dayz
