We’re celebrating our FULL PAGE SPREAD in this month’s Women’s World Magazine. Pick one up today and read all about us–who we are, what we do and why we do it!
After all, we’re all about “Doing good where good is needed.” Our books – BRANDY AND VAL, BRANDY AND VAL’S FAVORITE THINGS and BRANDY AND VAL’S SPECIAL STORY — are entertaining and educational for pre-schoolers and they do good since every sale benefits animal rescues throughout the country. Don’t forget we have Mini-Brandy and Mini-Val toys, too. There’s still time to order and have them to take with you on that final summer hurrah we call Labor Day Weekend!
We’re enjoying our summer break but are gearing up for the busy fall, lining up our appearances and pet therapy programs. On Septeber 16, we plan to be at the “Character Counts” Social in Elk Grove Village, IL (225 East Elk Grove Blvd) starting at 4:30 p.m. talking about the responsibilities of pet ownership and reading our stories. Starting September 23 on consecutive Thursdays through October 14, you can sign your child up to read to Brandy and Val at the Mt. Prospect Library, IL, PAWS TO READ PROGRAM 7:00 p.m. – 8:15 p.m.
With the 5th Anniversary of Hurricane Katrina coming up the end of the month, we wish to thank everyone who helped in the reilef eforts and who continues to help rebuild the City. Val was adopted from Katrina and he sends special doggie kisses to those out there who helped save his life. The rest of his family is forever grateful, too! 100% of the sales from BRANDY AND VAL’S SPECIAL STORY are donated back to the rescue Brandy and Val were both adopted from.
Until next month, remember that without your continued support, we wouldn’t be able to continue helping others. Please follow us on Facebook, Twitter and comment on our posts at “What We’re Barking About,” our blog.
