to the Fifth Annual Dogs Deserve Better
gets rave reviews by everyone who buys or reads it. This
year we've outdone ourselves, or shall we say you've outdone
yourselves! You submitted your rescued, formerly chained
or penned dogs for our consideration, and we made every effort
to get as many of their stories and photos into our calendar
as possible. And we brought on ace designer Tracy Copes of Daft Deneration to breathe new life into our calendar pages.
We've compiled 28 dog rescue stories for you—all Happy Ending
of course—and you'll come to know the dogs in a new way as
you read their touching stories each month!
We had a great time pulling together a gorgeous, full color calendar,
and an especially good time designing 5 covers for you to choose
our winning cover model. Thanks to the concerted
efforts of Dawn Ashby, who campaigned extensively for votes for
her rescued boy Remo, he was the winner this year with almost 700
votes! Never fear,
though, all of our gorgeous calendar cover model contestants will
appear somewhere within our calendar—they will all get
their time in the sun!
Calendars ship November 1, 2009.
are the only calendar to focus solely on chained and penned
dog rescue stories, so don't miss out! Our stories are vibrant,
our photos are gorgeous and fun . . . The calendar is full color throughout, and
features stories of 28 rescued dogs, each different, each
heart-warming, each happy-ending. Full-page stories are complete
with before and after photos, while bottom stories feature
smaller, after photos with a story.
Remo was a Dalmatian who had been through it all—abused, abandoned, attacked by other dogs (apparent from the scars on his face). He was then found by a person who thought he was ‘saving him,’ tethered and starving for food, health care and attention. That’s when Dawn Ashby of Dogs Deserve Better found him. He was surrendered to her and transported to Dalmatian Rescue of Illinois. Remo was an angel of a dog with so much love to give but no one to appreciate or reciprocate his love. Deb Trainor of Dalmatian Rescue of Illinois took Remo in as a foster, teaching him everything he would need to know about living inside as part of a family. Jill Brooks was looking for a younger Dalmatian when she met Remo and fell in love with him. Today Remo lives with a younger Dalmatian sibling and is finally adored, as he should have been all along. Dogs Deserve Better and Dawn Ashby thank Dalmatian Rescue of Illinois and Jill Brooks for helping to save Remo.
