"Our" Guide Dog - 31st July 2009

We have a very special and important pack meeting today!
We were officially introducted to "our" guide dog!

Every week at cubs, we collect "funny money". We decide upfront what we will be collecting for and this time round, the cubs decided that they would like to sponsor another Guide Dog.
This is a huge amount of money to save - R10 000 - so it has taken quite a while; perhaps just over 3 years but we have finally done it!
This is Imrani and she will be our Guide Dog this time round.
She is only 12 weeks old and ever so precious!
This is a brother dog that joined Imrani on her visit. He is also a Guide Dog and joined in on the fun for the day! He had such a wonderful run around our grounds.

Sitting ever so well and watching the goings on.

Imrani was handed her very own 9th Benoni Bambanai scarf. She immediately decided the woggle looked like a good item to chew!

Big Brother was keen to get in on the act as well.

and because this was such a special occasion, she also received a bone from all the cubs.

Mmmmm - very tasty indeed!

This initiative forms part of our National Cub Challenge where we need to show that we"care" for someone in the community.
Our local newspaper was there to take photos.

Well done to all the Cubs.
We are so proud of you for raising so much money to help someone else.... and now you have met Imrani and we shall be keeping in close contact with her and we shall watch her progress as she goes through her "puppy walking" and training.

We then did some work!
We started to work on our Citizen Badge which ties in nicely with organisations that help other people!

.... and we also invested 3 New Chums!

... our Pack is growing in leaps and bounds!

.... and we are having so much fun!

Till next Time
Keep Cubbing

  1. Congratulations to your Pack for a great achievement. You must all be very proud to sponsor a guide dog.

  2. Thanks Nick. This is a huge achievement for the Cubs as R10 000 is a lot of money! ... so we are very proud of them all. This is the 2nd dog that we have sponsored; the previous one being in 2005.
    Take care.
