Once he was comfortably settled into his new family, it became apparent that Billie was exceptionally photogenic. Debbie was inspired to use her pup's special knack for modeling to create a spectacular calendar in order to support rescue groups and promote pet adoption.
We discovered Billie's calendar as volunteers for Oakland Animal Services, and now it has become a monthly ritual for us to gather together to unveil the new page. It's always exciting to see what Billie has in store since his modeling knows no bounds: he has posed as a cowboy, an elf, a diva, and even a plate of salad!
The 2011 calendar is available now and proceeds will benefit Chihuahua Rescue of San Diego and Furbaby Rescue in Washington state. I know that we will be ordering Billie's 2011 calendar and I hope you will too!
Don't forget that October is ADOPT A DOG MONTH and there are thousands upon thousands of wonderful pooches waiting for families in shelters across the U.S. In the San Francisco Bay Area there are a truly astonishing number of homeless Chihuahuas and small breed dogs in particular. During my recent volunteer shifts at Oakland Animal Services, I have come across a Dachshund, a Yorkie, several Mini Poodles and Rat Terriers, and dozens of adorable Chihuahuas just like Billie Valentine.
