Protect our Pups!!!

3,000 Mushroom Alert Cards 
Donated to Bernese Mountain Dog National Specialty

I'm so proud to say "The Friends of Donato" have made it possible to donate 3,000 Mushroom Alert Cards to the BMDCA National Specialty. Donato's message will be put in every Welcome Bag at the BMDCA National Specialty and packets of 10 cards will be available to breeders to give to their puppy people.  We are asking if breeders could give a small donation so we can pay it forward and continue to print more cards. The cards are 3 x 4 inches and printed on high gloss card stock.  The .jpg files for the card and also Donato's poster are also available on this website. (see the above tabs.)

Unfortunately, just this morning I got an email about another pup in Menlo Park, CA that died from mushroom toxicity. So our work is not done. I challenge other breed clubs to help spread the word. Please contact me if your organization or club would like to order a quantity of Mushroom Alert cards. We make no money on this...only pay it forward so we can continue to print more cards. (see Contact tab above.)

Donato would have turned two years old last week. He would be a big boy now...and though he is only with us in spirit his message has spread the globe. My little silver gent, how he has grown and become a very important boy dog. 

Happy Birthday My Sweet Donato!
