Dogs Trust and Ho No No Campaign
We Bernese Mountain Dogs saw this tweet from Dogs Trust:
WE NEED YOUR HELP! Please send a FREE card today to @HarrodsofLondon: http://greetingcards.dogstrust.org.uk/cards_honono.php?id=143 #HoNoNo #ADogIsForLife
We clicked on the link and read this:
Dogs Trust is launching their “Ho, No, No” campaign, to target Harrods and other pet shops across the UK to encourage them to stop selling puppies at Christmas time. Please send a card to remind them and local pet shops that
‘A dog is for life, not just Christmas.”
Here’s some information about the Dogs Trust campaign:
You can send a FREE card to Harrods, and you will be able to choose a message once you have chosen your card. Dogs Trust is funding the sending of the FREE cards to Harrods. There is an option to pay for the card at 95p plus delivery and by doing this you will help us spread the message further as more cards will be able to be sent. If you wish to send a card to your local pet shop you will be charged and you will need to know the address.
For those who don’t know, Harrods of London (in the UK) advertises itself as, “the world’s most famous luxury department store.” Harrods, you should be ashamed of yourself! It’s not going to be luxurious for a dog to be brought into a home where the owners may have made a “spur-of-the-moment” decision to bring a cute puppy home; only to realize that it’s a huge responsibility and they now have regrets. Animals deserve the very best of care and love and, as Dogs Trust is trying to remind Harrods, ‘A dog is for life, not just for Christmas.’

The following are all great links from Dogs Trust that I encourage you to check out if you know of someone thinking of getting a dog this Christmas. The information that Dogs Trust has gathered will help people to make responsible decisions so they are prepared to give a puppy a forever home.
