Find out How to Help Dogs in Need During October with the PEDIGREE® “You Buy, We Give” program. Easy to do and you’ll feel good for helping.
Our youngest daughter Leightyn was only 18 months old when we brought our dog Wookie (rhymes with Cookie) into our home. It took her awhile to warm up to Wookie as she was just little herself. Gradually though we noticed a bond forming between Leightyn and Wookie that no one else in the family shared.
The two of them have somewhat of an understanding if you will, they spend their special time together which usually entails Leightyn cuddling with Wookie when she needs her the most. As the youngest child of 6, Leightyn has had to find her own special spot in our family, often she struggles with being heard and understood. Wookie is her Best Fur Friend, she has a calming effect on Leightyn and for that we are very appreciative.
Leightyn has now started preschool and has been given special responsibilities or “jobs” within her classroom. To tie into this personal growth we’ve decided to give her some “Wookie Jobs” at home. Simple tasks which help her to understand some of the many responsibilities that come along with pet ownership.
Wookie Jobs such as:
- Giving her a clean blanket for her crate.
- Filling her water bowl throughout the day.
- Gathering her toys from around the house.
- Giving her a PEDIGREE® DENTASTIX™ Dog Treat.
Leightyn takes her Wookie Jobs very seriously and rarely has to be reminded. And Wookie knows that her girl is taking extra special care of her BFF.
We enjoy giving back and helping our children appreciate the importance of doing so. An example of giving back can be as simple as purchasing PEDIGREE® products at Sam’s Club. How you may ask? During the month of October PEDIGREE® purchases at Sam’s Club will give a dog in need a bowl of food as part of their “You Buy. We Give” initiative. Doesn’t get much easier than that, right?
You are already shopping at Sam’s Club, why not pick up some PEDIGREE® and help out a dog in need? Both your pet and a dog in need are benefiting simply by purchasing a PEDIGREE® product, and there’s many products available at Sam’s Club to choose from.
Doesn’t it feel good to give? Helping our kids understand responsibilities as humans is part of parenting. Why not start at home with our furriest of friends and the PEDIGREE® “You Buy. We Give” initiative at Sam’s Club during the month of October? I think it’s a great place to start.
