Doggy selfies- have you taken part?
With so many visitors coming to stay in our wonderful region to stay at our dog friendly cottages Cornwall which offers the ideal setting to join in the newest trend emerging. We’re sure that most people are aware of the current craze of ‘selfies’ in order to raise awareness and to make donations to very worthy charities. Well now the selfie craze has been taken to a new level as the phenomenon runs wild in the canine world with a flurry of pooch pictures being posted online to raise money for Devon dog rescue charity K9 Focus.

With the recent ‘no makeup selfies’ taking over newsfeeds across Facebook as people pledge £3 for cancer research following  the upload of their own photograph, K9 Focus decided to use this novel idea and get involved with the craze.

The charity are asking dog owners to put their doggy selfies on the K9 Focus Facebook page and donate £3 to the charity, a completely volunteer-run organisation that ensures rescue dogs are rehomed in new homes that will give rescue dogs the attention, love, and care that they deserve.

Since the scheme began last Sunday there have been over 50 pictures being received. K9 Focus have reported that they haven’t just had four-legged friends from the South West posting their selfies- there have been pictures from across the UK, and even as far afield as Scotland and France too!

Anyone who wants to join in with the ‘dognominate’ fun is being asked to keep the trend going by getting other dog loving friends and family involved.

If you would like to post a picture you can post on the K9 Focus Facebook page and people can donate by texting 70070  with the message PUDS14 not forgetting the amount they would like to donate. Alternatively there is a link at http://www.k9focus.co.uk/
