Article # 16 –Who’s that Poodle in the Movies?
I believe someone suggested finding celebs. who had poodles, or well
known people who might be sympathetic to our cause, and might possibly
help us with fund raising for Dreamweaver Farm, (of course, I think
Dominick and Cocoa are both famous, at least in my home, but they’re not
very practiced fund raisers….. YET…LOL). Anywhooo,….I decided to
check into some famous poodles,(both real and fantasy poodles of course),
poodle owners , lovers, etc. and found the list below. Maybe we could
contact some of the authors, owners, creators, and they might like to help
out,…….. for a very worthy cause!
Do we have someone who can write a wonderfully fantastical,
fantabulous, (anyone ever notice, I love making up my own words…LOL),
super, convincingly good letter,….. aaaaaand would be interested in
“producing” a form letter for us?????????? HMMMMM??????? Any
takers???? Or anyone know someone? …. Or know someone who knows
someone??.... who can sell anything to anyone??? What we need here is a
REALLY GOOD traveling salesman type personality.
Now I’m talking about someone who could sell fleas to a dog, someone who
could sell wood stoves in Jamaica, someone who could sell air-conditioners
in Alaska…. OK, OK, I’ll stop! You get the picture!
So if you have someone in mind, let us know and we can all bombard
them with self pity type letters making them feel so guilty they will just
have to help us…LOL, just kidding, but maybe not, I’m not above
begging. Playing on the emotions, (hey, it’s honest), is not beneath me
either if it’s for our pups.
I for one would send it out there to some of these “famous” people, and
maybe even to some "not so famous" people.... ones who still might help
us!! So what'd ya say folks? Can we do it? YES WE
