Gentle Paws Adoption Drive and Donna’s Story

Gentle Paws and Friends Adoption DriveWe brought Donna over to the Gentle Paws and Friends Adoption Drive over the weekend. Donna recently completed her Basic Obedience Course so the shelter suggested that she can participate in an obedience demo to visitors.

While that didn’t happen in the end, Donna participated in some games like the jumping challenge where she was pretty good at…

And the Fastest Eating Dog challenge. Let’s just say Donna should not hope to win and be the fastest eating dog in any future fastest eating contests. :P :P :P

//Update: Mr P would like to add that Donna can probably win the Greediest Eating Dog Challenge thought. She licked clean all the other dog’s plates when everyone else stopped eating and they were trying to collect the used plates back.  – – !

Also many thanks to Florence who gave us copies of Dora the Explorer (issue 17) and Disney Princess (Issue 126) magazines for young girls. An edited version of Donna’s story, originally written by Gentle Paws and Friends, was published on the back page of the two magazines.

  1. Kali would have given the winner second place. Wow, she’s a quick eater. I think it comes from her shelter time-if you didn’t eat it now, some other dog would and you’d go hungry.

    • Donna is not a quick eater. But she specialises in stealing the choice bits of other dog’s food at the shelter. *ooops* :P That’s how she became overweight and picky. – -! HAHAHAHAHAHA

  2. Donna is famous! You have done such a great job with her. She is a good ambassador for the rescue. The fastest dog eating contest video was cute. :) Thanks for joining the hop!

    What fun that Donna’s story is in kids’ magazines! And what fun that she’s such a … determined eater!

  4. Delilah says those dogs in Singapore are slow eaters! She is the fastest eater I’ve ever seen and man can she jump when her meal is in view!

    You’ve done such a great job with Donna, she really is a great ambassador for rescue.

    Thank you for joining the blog hop!

  5. Donna is famous! Who need to be the fastest eater?

Come on, chit chat!
