Campaigns With Christmas: Helpfulness

Bow wow, welcome back to my weekly campaigns, friends! This is Christmas speaking. So...what's today's campaign topic, you might ask? Well, today's topic is helpful. Each week we feature a topic that's a value every candy date should have, and today's topic is helpful.

What does it mean to be helpful? What does it mean to lend a paw?

If you're a human, maybe being helpful means...

Encouraging someone.

Being friends with someone who others might not be friends with.

Volunteering to do things others have to do.

If you're a doggy like me, maybe being helpful means...

Helping the humans eat their food by eating it ourselves.

Helping the humans stay safe by barking at EVERY SINGLE leaf that falls outside or every human or pup that stroll by.

Chasing all the wicked tree rats out of human territory.

Helping the humans stay busy by lifting our legs on counters so they have to get off the couch and clean up our messes.

If you're a cat perhaps you are helpful by...

Well, cats don't scoop their own litter boxes so I actually don't have any examples. Plus, cats will rule the world someday so they just help themselves. BOL!

Um, so my mom is saying those last things I listed aren't really helpful to the humans but I still think they're important. If I wasn't there, nobody would have stolen mom's last piece of delicious bacon! Okay, maybe I'm getting a bit off track...

Anyway, if you're a candy date, why is it impawtent to be helpful? Let's see how I can be a helpful Dachshund dude if I become mayor of Blogville!

I could help peeps, doggies, and other animals in Blogville by giving them shout outs, encouraging them, making them feel included and special, and by helping out with any blog issues they're having. I'm a handy pup!

Being helpful also means answering any questions anyone might ask.

Our last example of being helpful is always persevering and staying positive because that's what makes Blogville a persevering and positive place!

How can you be helpful to your humans today, doggies and kitties?
