Be On the Look Out for Bolo - And Watch her Grow!
EverythingDogBlog #164: The Raising Bolo Project Logo - A De-Lightful Dog Logo for (Nearly) Wordless Wednesday

“A Dog can Change the Way You See the World”
One puppy will and Bolo is that Puppy. . . .
Dog is Good is raising a puppy this year, Bolo, a future Leader Dog for the Blind (“Finding Your Way”).
Because dog-people know, “It takes a village to raise a puppy,” Dog is Good (DIG) is using social media to help raise funds for Leader Dogs during Bolo’s first year, before her official training begins. A portion from each item sold by DIG or one of the Bolo Project sponsors is donated to Leader Dogs. So far, more than $15,000 has been raised or donated through DIG sales, donations and special events. (For information on becoming a sponsor, attending an event, or donating, see the Bolo Project page.)
The Bolo Project is a year-long (September 2013 to September 2014) fundraiser to help the Michigan-based Leader Dogs for the Blind (founded in 1939 and supported by donations and Lions Clubs).
Now, About Bolo!
|Bolo's Birth Announcement|
Bolo is a lively lovely little yellow Labrador retriever, born August 1, 2013, and weighing in at 9.5 ounces and 7 inches long. The happy little puppy has already met and fallen in love with Victoria Stillwell, as well as loads of other people and kids – she is very well-socialized. Watch her grow in the accompanying photo spreads! (see composite photos below)

The Bolo Project logo (see logo above) carries through on the Dog is Good color scheme and on the dog – this time with a much-loved (signified by a red heart) puppy, Bolo. Bolo’s head is cocked just the way we humans just melt over and the puppy is sporting a halo of puppy perfection. Bolo is also decked out in her Leader Dog in Training bandana.
For more information about Dog is Good, please see the previous two Wordless Wednesdays: the first, on April 30, was about theDog is Good logo itself (and the company), and last week, May 7, EverythingDogBlog explained All About Dogvergnugen!
