Sam’s Club Success

We had a good day at Sam’s Club in New Port Richey on April 19 & 20. Katie and Lucy, our mascots are now being recognized by quite a few folks. The classic “Marmaduke” cartoon in the St Pete Times (Sun Feb 10 edition) featured Katie and Lucy in the last panel. Cartoonist Brad Anderson features real dogs in his “Dog-Gone Funny!” story at the end of his strip. Our Shelter gets a mention and Katie is featured carrying her donation basket to the delight of the humans. Both girls are drawn in their signature colorful bandanas. We were thrilled to be in a nationally syndicated classic comic strip. Our thanks and appreciation to the generous, dog-loving cartoonist Brad Anderson.

Footnote to this story: Lisa Buie, a St Pete Times columnist wrote a wonderful piece about our celebrity girls getting in the “funny papers”. Times photographer Brendan Fitterer added some great shots for the story featured on the front page of the Pasco Times on Feb 12. Thanks St Pete Times- we love you!
