Dogs are better than chocolate-The Pedigree Adoption Drive.

by Lori Dwyer on June 9, 2010 · 13 comments

Why hello there,

The Aussies amongst us may just have heard about the Pedigree Adoption Drive that’s going on at the moment. The lovely ladies from Nuffnang are helping them out. And here is my little contribution. A list of reason why dogs are, in fact, better than chocolate.

“Really? Surely, Lori, you are just pulling our leads (so to speak)? How can anything be better than chocolate?”

I know, I know, it sounds insane.But trust me with this one. Let’s take a closer look.

My own beautiful better-than-chocolate puppy, Scarlette.

Dogs don’t make you fat.
In fact, walking them actually keeps the weight off! Imagine!

Dogs don’t give you holes in your teeth.
Although they may just put holes in your shoes.

It doesn’t matter if you buy the cheap brand or the expensive one.
With a dog, the satisfaction is still the same.

You don’t have to worry about whether your puppy is Free Trade.
Especially if you get him through the Pedigree site.

Dogs are more effective than chocolate for PMS.
Because they are a hot water bottle, best friend, box of tissues and sounding board all in one. And they don’t argue back (Or tell you to get up off the lounge, stop this crying and get on with things. If they could talk, they might say that. But they can’t. So we’re all good.).

Dogs don’t melt in the car on hot days.
Ummm.. kinda. Not as quickly as the chocolate, anyway.

I think I’ve settled my case. Chocolate is one of the bestest substances know to man and woman- especially to woman- and we still managed to find at least five quite valid reasons why puppies kick choccie’s butt.

So, go on, click the link. If you can’t adopt a puppy, donate some moula to help feed and care for the dogs waiting for new families. Just remember- a puppy is for life, not just for promotions. OK? OK.

Those little doggies do enrich your life. Who else can you get unconditional love from?

What's better than a doggy-hug to get you up and bouncing in the day?
Oh yes a doggy-bouncing when it sees you for the first time in the day!
I love our 'furry children' almost as much as the kids and they bring Lots and Lots of joy.
Thanks for this post,

Haha Katt I meant the brand of *dog*, not the brand of dog food!!

This is a cute post! It's not true about the brands though… the cheap brands can kill your doggy with using meat from pound animals, bad byproducts and other terrible things :( I learned the hard way! But they will still love you the same!

I love the doggy in the piccie!

Your puppy is so sweet!

Our dog May is adopted, and several friends have adopted dogs as well – they are the best! It makes me cry to walk past a pet store and see those poor, poor puppies in the display windows – they've never walked on grass or even been outside…how sad is that?

Well, you've convinced me. I'm going to moved to Australia *just* so I can take part in the Pedigree Adoption Drive. There, it's decided. (Packing chocolate…)

We don't have a dog. But if we're gonna get one, I want that psycho looking puppy. Hehe.

My dog Sledge is adopted from RSPCA, all my partner's extended family have adopted dogs. They are the best natured dogs ever! They are all pining to come inside and cuddle as I have 4 dogs at my house as my in-laws are concreting. Dogs are spoilt enough to be just like people.

We have the same type of places in the UK and they work well. We also have several 'Sponsor a Dog' schemes where you donate a certain amount each month to contribute towards their care/food etc whilst they are in a shelter. In fact, donations to animal charities seem to be higher than some of the human ones!

Jodie, I agree totally. Pet shops and puppy mills need to have all demand removed. There is a scum bag here in Adelaide who runs a disgusting puppy mill and continues to dodge the authorities despite TT and ACA & the RSPCA getting to him: it makes my blood boil.

If anyone wants a dog, ADOPT.

How cute!

We adopted our dog about 18 mths ago. He'd been in the shelter from the age of 4mths thru to 18mths old. Poor thing. I guess he wasn't "cute" enough for everyone. And you know what? He has turned out to be the best dog ever. So good with the kids. Obedient. Protective. All of that – and without a scrap of training!

I want to discourage people from buying their pets from pet shops. Those poor animals are bred from mistreated animals – who are just breeding machines. The more animals are bought from pet shops, the more the industry churns them out. Supply and demand. No demand, supply goes down and these so called "breeders" go out of business.

Ok – getting of my soap box now…

Ok so he is not a dog – he is a cat, but the best thing we have ever done it to adopt him from a shelter.
