A Taste of Holiday Spirit — Bully Sticks

Like many of you read on Love & a Six-Foot leash yesterday, the very famous Handsome Dan held a bully stick drive to benefit the dogs at their local shelters. When Handsome Dan’s Rescue received many, many more bully sticks than they could have ever imagined, they generously shared the wealth. Three days later, a shipment of bully sticks showed up at the Montgomery County Humane Society.

Now has anyone out there hand delivered such a scrumptious treat to a bunch of shelter dogs awaiting forever homes? If you haven’t, I highly recommend it. It is so rewarding.

The activity level of the shelter immediately settles down as each dog gently grabs their bully stick and trots to their beds to savor the delicious snack. Soon you have a silent kennel with nothing but little sounds of chewing and happy dogs.

So thank you very much to Handsome Dan’s Rescue for Pit Bull Type Dogs for the bully sticks. Our shelter dogs sure loved them, and nothing makes us happier than seeing our animals so happy.

And thank you to everyone else who is thinking of homeless animals during this holiday season. Today is MCHS’s “Holiday for the Shelter Animals” celebration. Our volunteers will be spending extra time with the animals, and handing out the multitude of toys, blankets, and treats we received through holiday donation drives. Baxter and I will also be delivering the 200 lbs of kibble! Thanks to the generosity of the public we will be able to bring a little bit of holiday cheer to the animals, like we already started with the bully sticks. Santa CK Bax sure is looking forward to it!

    Handsome Dan–a Victory dog–and his whole “dan” family are wonderful people. Lucky dogs at the shelters who received all these sticks. But especially to all the wonderful people who supported this request.

  2. I always bring treats and blankets around the holidays to our local shelter, which I’ve already done, but I may have to make an emergency run out for some bullysticks. Don’t know why it never occurred to me before … they really are manna from heaven as far as the pups are concerned. Even my raw fed dogs prefer bullysticks to almost anything.

    P.S. Love Bax in his Santa suit! I feel merrier already!

  3. I had honestly never thought of bringing blankets, bully sticks, or anything else to shelter dogs at Christmas. Thanks for sharing about this – I am definitely going to do something for area shelter dogs every Christmas from now on!

    Now that is what the Christmas Spirit is all about! Bless you ALL for ALL that you do! Luv the pic of Santa Bax! Merry Christmas! My wish is for all those doggies to find their forever homes fast!
