adorable puppies 2021 diary

You just welcomed a new furball into your life and you’ve already run out of space on your phone because it is in fact the most adorable being on the planet. Suddenly your life revolves around this wide-eyed creature – scheduling puppy school classes, vet visits, playdates, etc.

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if your planning in 2021 could be done in a beautiful A5 diary that stars your very own pride and joy? A diary that supports a group that helps rescue and rehome puppies that might not have had the best start in life.

In the coming months I’ll reserve time for 12 sessions with all these pupstars and then design and produce my sixth annual fundraiser diary. (There was no 2020 diary published due to other commitments in 2019.)

This project will raise funds for Fetching Dogs in the following way:

  • $100 for every puppy photographed for the project will be put towards diary printing; and
  • 100% of the profits from diary sales will be donated once they’ve all been sold.

Who can take part?

Owners of confident 8-12wk old puppies, any breed or mix of breeds. (If you missed the cut-off age and you own a blockhead or a head-tilter you can still apply for one of my other two fundraiser projects.)

Participation Fee
