Treasure Hunt

Treshur Hunt"  - Sommer 2015

Rasmus hatte diesen Sommer jede Menge Arbeit in seinem Bäckhulter Revier. Er hat sich zusammen mit seiner "mom" an einer ganz speziellen "Schatzsuche" beteiligt. Für ihn war das natürlich eine absolut leichte Übung. Richtig spitzenmäßig dabei war, dass der "TRESHUR HUNT" für einen guten Zweck veranstaltet wurde. Der Erlös kam nämlich einer Terrier-Nothilfe in England zu Gute. Rasmus bekam eine prima Urkunde und 2 schicke Halstücher als Belohnung! Noch dazu wurde sein pFoto in einer Hundezeitung abgedruckt und wahrscheinlich wird sogar ein Buch dazu erscheinen. Respekt, Rassmussen! So eine Schatzsuche hätte MIR auch riiiiiesig Spaß gemacht! ;-) 
Beäugt den stolzen Schatzsucher:

Alles weitere bellt Euch mein Wikingerkumpel jetzt höööchst selbst! Wie ihr lesulieren könnt, ist etliches in hervorragendem "dog-english" gebellt bzw. gepfotelt! ;-)
Viel Spaß und...
...Los geht's: 


Vov-vov!

In the Summer "mom" and I discovered in Facebook that there was a page set up by one of our FB-friends in England. It was called “Waffle & Barley’s Fundraising Group”. A worldwide sponsored TREASHUR HUNT 2015.

The story behind it: In Summer 2014 this lady and her dog Waffle decided to support a Terrier Rescue called Terrier SOS based in England but they work all over Europe:
* Terrier-SOS * 
 
Her dog Waffle is an expert in finding lost balls. So she thought she could make something out of this. So she decided to sponsor her dog for every ball he found, and send the money to Terrier SOS. Friends of hers on Facebook saw this and also joined in. They collected quite a lot of money! 6.332 Euro!
This Summer she decided to invite FB-friends all over the world to join in. But not only to collect balls, it would be a TRESHUR HUNT! She and some friends of hers, came up with a list of 25 treasures that should be found, pFotographed together with the dog that found it on the Facebook-page:
* Borlee H.Q. *
 
The TREASURE HUNT started in July and was immediately spreading worldwide! I don’t know how many dogs that participated, but at least 250 dogs! Of course, I WAS ONE OF THEM, I think the only one in Sweden.

These are the 25 objects we should find:

01 - A park bench
02 - A red door
03 - A white feather
04 - The number "8"
05 - A sun puddle to snooze in
06 - A mud puddle to bog-snorkel in
07 - A C-A-T
08 - A post box
09 - A statue
10 - A celebrity
11 - A policeman/policewoman
12 - Father Cristmoosel
13 - A flag
14 - A borlee shaped pebble
15 - A tree stum / fallen tree
16 - Stray chippies under the table
17 - Your V-E-T
18 - Sum paw prinits
19 - A red bicycle
20 - A cayke (hooman or doggie)
21 - A bunny / skwirrel (cuddly or real)
22 - A water Feature (pond, sea, bucket)
23 - A round window
24 - Goal Posts
25 - As many borlees as you can find! (spehul treshur)

"Mom" and I completed the whole list. After a while I got a badge with Top Recruit on it.
The ladies had found sponsors for every pFoto that was posted on their FB page. All in all, we collected 9.728 Euro.
So about October a British Dog Magazine, called "DOGS MONTHLY", heard about this TREASHUR HUNT and wrote about it and some of the pFotos from the Facebook-page were in there (issue December). And to my surprise I with MY swedish flag too!
One of the ladies in England bought all magazines she could find, and sent it to all "Top Recruit" dogs. That’s how I got his!

Well, some of the treasures above were hard to find in Bäckhult this summer:

06 "A mud puddle" I could not find aw it was very dry weather, but I found a place where it had been one.
07 "A cat" is a very small cat figurine we have.
11 No police in Vimmerby, just the sign….
12 "Father Christmas" we have for Christmas decoration in Bäckhult
17 MY V-E-T is in Göteborg (pFoto of the vet in Vimmerby)
21 Skwirrel (Squirrel). Same here, a very small Bunny Figurine.

The others I found (Nr. 10 is the statue of Astrid Lindgren in Vimmerby square).

So "mom" and I completed the whole list. After a while I got a badge with "Top Recruit" on it:







The ladies had found sponsors for every pFoto that was posted on their Facebook-page. All in all we collected 9728,-- Euro!

Then a British Dog Magazine, barked "DOGS MONTHLY" heard about this TRESHUR HUNT and wrote about it and some of the pFotos of the Facebook-page were in there.

Aaaand...to my surprise I with MY SWEDISH FLAG, too!
One of the ladies in England bought all magazines she could find, and sent it to all "Top Recruit" Dogs.
 

Yesss! I am proud!


Can you see me? ;-) If you do not: Paw on the pFoto! ;-)

In September all the TOP RECRUITS got a questionnaire to fill in, answering questions where we found the treasurs, which was the most difficult to find and so on. Together with the answers and the pFoto to go with it, they plan to write a book about the TREASURE HUNT. The money from selling them will go to * Terrier-SOS * . 

And I got 2 bandanas as well.

Mine...the one with the flowers on it I gave away to my sweet girliefriend Flora! It looks lovely on her with flowers...as she is called FLORA. This bandana was to girlie for ME, because I AM A DANGEROUS PIRATE! 

That's the end of this story!
 
VOV-VOV! Believe me:
IT WAS VERY BIG FUN! 

Yours
Rasmus
