A German Shepherd mix, Butch was a fierce protector of our farm and us kids, he was as good a cow dog as you could hope for, he was a member of our family.
Like many dogs, Butch wasn't too fond of storms. When the thunder boomed and lightening lit the sky, Butch snuck into my folks' bedroom and lay down on the floor next to Dad's side of the bed. Dad never sent him away.
Butch was a good and faithful dog. Writing this blog reminds me of what a good friend Butch was and it lets me help other dogs who could be as good for a family as Butch was for ours.
From now until September 3, for every blog that mentions the Pedigree Foundation , the Foundation will donate 20 pounds of dog food to help feed the more than four million dogs that wind up in shelters and breed rescue organizations each year. The 'Write a Post Help a Dog" goal is to donate 10,000 lbs. of dog food from this blog effort.
If you have or had an important dog in your life, think about joining this campaign. Check out the rules here.
