|I love Bowl Games!|
Bentley: “Hey Pierre! Have you shopped for the big game day treats? I don’t want to be all geared up for the game and there not be snacks. Those cookies from my birthday would be good in the shape of a football.”
Pierre: “Yep! I’m ready to cheer on the Tigers to the National Championship! WooHoo! LSU!”
*Bentley leans over and whispers into Pierre’s ear.
Pierre: “It's seems that it is not the LSU Tigers playing. It must be the other bayou team. Let’s go Saints! Who dat? Drew Brees is dat! WooHoo!”
*Bentley leans over and once again whispers into Pierre’s ear.
Pierre: “Okay, so it's not the Saints either. Maybe next year guys. Until then; Two bits, four bits, six bits, a dollar all for Team Dog stand up and howler! WooHoo! Cats don’t drool, dogs RULE!
Bentley: “Now that's the spirit! We are getting ready for what could be the best
Bowl Commercial of 2015. It’s
airing on the Hallmark’s Kitten Bowl.
Rumor has it that this commercial will change the way America looks at
cats and dogs forever.
|Woo Hoo! Go Team Dog!|
Pierre: I can only imagine. The one and only Sam Nicholson directed it. Since you aren’t as big of a movie buff as I am, he is one of Hollywood’s most acclaimed visual effects Wizards. Remember watching Heroes, 24, and Star Trek 1? Yep, that was him. I’d mention watching The Walking Dead, but you had your eyes covered with your ears through the whole show.” *snicker
Bentley: The Lucy Pet Foundation’s #DogsvsCats football game commercial on Super Bowl Sunday will be groundbreaking. It is going to feature the most high-tech CGI or Computer Generated Imagery ever done using animals. You can be sure it will be all the talk at work on Monday. Well, you know for humans that have to work.”
|This is so cool!|
Pierre: “I know it will be a lot of fun, but it serves a greater purpose. The commercial will draw attention to the 80,000 pets euthanized each week in shelters across the U.S. due to overpopulation. That’s some seriously sad numbers. Lucky for all of us, The Lucy Foundation has some fantastic ideas for helping to solve the overpopulation problem. It is really more than a problem; it’s a tragedy. I am NOT saying that the commercial is going to be a downer. It is definitely going to be a good time!”
Bentley: “That’s for sure; it is going to be a hoot! I think the multi-targeted
solution that the Lucy Pet Foundation proposes is very
doable. Offer free and low cost mobile
spay/neuter clinics across the country. Eventually,
these operations will all be free!
Education is a cornerstone to any successful movement and this is no
exception. That education wouldn’t end
with people. Training shelter pets will
make them more desirable. Teaching dog
and cat grooming techniques to shelter volunteers will allow them to make the
pets more adoptable.”
|We are #TeamDog|
Pierre: “That is a wonderful plan! They are also working to enact legislation benefitting pets, including banning gas chambers at shelters. Here at Barking from the Bayou, we are for a no-kill nation. The idea that gas chambers are still being used is barbaric.” *shuddering whimper
Bentley: “How can that even be an option? I can hardly wait to see the stars of the commercial. Rickey the cat along with Jack and Cooper the dogs are all rescues! I’m telling all of my friends and family to tune in for the Kitten Bowl. They don’t want to miss the Dogs vs. Cats commercial. Hey, friends…watch the Lucy Pet Foundation commercial on Sunday, February 1, 2015. It airs on the Hallmark Channel at 12/1:00 CT.”
Pierre: “Don’t forget the treats!”
