IMPS Poster

Sat, 5 Jun 1999 17:05:04 EDT - from Nancy

Mag,

I have attached 3 jpgs of the IMPS Poster I threw together for what we thought would be some promotion of our cause at the MPCA Nationals in Orlando. Please post it to the web site for all to see.

You may or may not know that MPCA is now giving us some difficulty about promoting ourselves at their show. But, like they say, "It ain't over until the fat lady sings!" (No offense taken by anyone please)

The first is of the entire poster, but you can't see it too clearly, so I took two more, one of each half. I included every rescue photo from the web that you were kind enough to send me and any photo's that were sent to me via snail mail.

I apologize to any of our Angels out there, who don't see their fur babies photo's on the poster and again if I got any of the names wrong.

I hope you all like it.

IMPS Pin

Sat, 5 Jun 1999 17:05:11 EDT - from Nancy

IMPS pin

Since several of our members are going to the Nationals in Florida, I decided to make a pin for each person so we can recognize each other.

The pins are nothing fancy, they are plastic and have the IMPS logo (Listers head) in the center.

They ended up costing about $2.00 each for the supplies and snail mailing. (Up to 4 pins in one envelope)

So, anyone interested, check the web site. Then e-mail me with the number of pins you would like and your snail mail address. Once you receive the pins, you can send payment to me.

If anyone thinks this is not a good idea, I would like to hear that also.

Thanks,

Nancy G.

Picture that says it all

Tue, 22 Jun 1999 17:31:35 EDT - from Nancy

Rie,Heidi

I know some people are waiting to see photos from Orlando, and I am working on them and will send them to Mag real soon, but I had to put this on the list.

I think this photo just says it all!

Nancy

Sorry Petie, but just had to do it. (It is Rie Shields and her rescue dog Heidi and although she was not an IMPS rescue, she did us proud at the show!)

Fund Raiser - Bandanna

Sun, 1 Aug 1999 19:24:14 EDT - from Nancy

Bandanna

Dawn and I have been talking about another fund raiser and came up with a Bandanna. If you remember Rie Shields' photo from the Orlando Nationals with Heidi, Heidi had a bandanna on that said Thanks IMPS.

Well, we kind of copied the idea and came up with two different bandannas. If your dog was an IMPS rescue, the bandanna would read. Dogs name, followed by "I was rescued by IMPS. Thanks IMPS!" If not a rescue it would be, Dogs name, followed by "I have friends who were rescued by IMPS. Thanks IMPS!"

The bandannas are made of white or natural material, depending on what color I can get. (Sometimes I can only get the Natural) The writing would be available in Red, Blue, Green or Purple. They do not tie around the neck, but they slip over the dogs collar, therefore they will fit all sizes of Minpins, and we know they come in all sizes!
(We will even make them in a large size for those of you who have dogs other than minpins.)

Each bandanna would be customized with your dogs name. We will be asking $10 per bandanna ($12 for the large size) The cost of supplies and mailing will be around $3, so for every bandanna IMPS will receive $7.

In order to cut down on the work Susan has to do, and keep all the orders correct with the customizing we would like all orders to be sent to me via SNAIL MAIL. Included with your check, we will need the correct spelling of your dogs name, the color ink, size (minpin or large) and whether or not he/she is a rescue.

We made up a few this weekend and while we were at Petie's, we took a group shot of the dogs with theirs on. Of course we turned the bandannas around so you could see them, so they do look like bibs in the photo. I will be sending this photo along with a close up of the bandanna to Mag so she can post it to the web site. (Until that time if anyone would like it sent to them, e-mail me privately and I will forward the JPEG.)

Bandanna

Anyone interested can send their check, made out to me, along with the requested information to:

Nancy Giammusso
2375 48th Street
Pennsauken, NJ 08110

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask. And don't forget, any purchases are now deductible due to our 501c status.

Dawn's weekend in hell with us. & Photos

Mon, 30 Aug 1999 17:48:11 EDT - from Nancy

Hi everyone,

Vince & I and our three, well behaved Minpins just returned from spending a long weekend in Mass. with Dawn, Skootchie, Millie, Captain & Tenille (SP?). Poor Dawn, I think she will need to take a week off just to recover from the Giammusso invasion! VBG

This was the first long trip with all three monsters and the 5+ hour drive there on Friday at 3:30 AM was interesting. Just sit back and imagine 3 minpins whining and crying every few minutes for most of the ride, and you will know what I am talking about.

Once we arrived, all three of them decided they had to make their marks, so they all pooped on Dawn's floor. That was only the first time :-(

My three got to meet a cat (make that two) for the first time, up close and personal. Dawn's cats were the most tolerant ones I have ever seen. Max & Dallas didn't pay much attention, but Nikki was in Heaven. Nikki had found two bosom buddies. So close were they, that Nikki tried to make babies with them. Captain finally had enough and swatted her away, but that just made it into a wrestling match. What a kick to watch the two of them.

One of the reasons we went was to help Dawn at a pet expo called Pet Rock. This was an Animal Rescue, Animal Rights, Cruelty Awareness gathering in Shrewsbury, Mass. on Sunday.

We put together a brochure about IMPS, printed up some of the forms from the website, redid the original poster from Florida, got some goodies for giveaways and set out to promote our cause. I may be biased, but I think we did a darn good job!

Pet Rock

Dawn made contact with a few local people interested in adoption and even a few that took volunteer applications.

We learned a lot for future Expos. (Like easy ways to get donations, etc.) So I think we would do at our next one. We did get some donations. Even a few kids put change in the barrel.

All in all it was a good experience. (They even clipped Max & Dallas' nails for us, and neither of them squirmed! They wouldn't move to NJ for us, so I guess we will have to go back to Mass again. That is if Dawn will put up with us again!!!)

Dawn was great, she put up with Vince's constant teasing like a trooper. Next time she should just punch him in the jaw. (Come to think of it, I think she already got him back. Every time Millie would jump on the couch, she always landed in a sensitive spot of Vince's. That's what I call good training)

I will be forwarding this post to Mag along with the photos. Anyone interested in the brochure, it is a Word Perfect document, so if you can view that format send me private mail and I will forward it to you.

Nancy, Vince, Max, Nikki & Dallas

Pictures from the Nationals

Mon, 3 Jul 2000 12:42:20 -0400 - from Nancy

Well I am sure I disappointed everyone, but we missed half the national so we didn't get many photos. But here's what we have.

The first set is from the awards banquet. The Badgerland Miniature Pinscher Club gave IMPS a Certificate of Achievement and 20 coupons for 440 lbs. of dog food for our contribution to the breed. The food coupons are being distributed among the Regional Coordinators. Anyone who would like to thank Nicole Baron and the Badgerland Club can write to Riodobe@aol.com It was very generous of them to give this to us.

Awards Banquet

In the large photo is Vince and Myself, Liz Bauer, Nicole Baron and Wendy Boyette.

Pics from the Nationals

The second is a collage of photos (like I usually do! VBG) Starting from the top left we have Vince, Me, Bill & Liz and her Rotties, Janni, Chrome and ? (sorry Liz I can't remember Bills puppies name) Then we have Judy Peters, Wendy on the phone and looking in the mirror, Bottom row is Liz & Bill doing a little free socializing for a breeder with a chocolate puppy, Wendy and Mellie being judged and last but not least, another photo of the award.

Liz and Family

The last photo is of Liz and her family. Top left is Liz & Bill and Liz's boys Dell and Val, and then there are two of Liz and I, and the final is me and my buddy the cow.

It was great to get to meet Liz and Judy Peters and to see Wendy again. We look forward to next year in Phoenix. I hope to meet Wendy (Colorado) and anyone else that is in the Phoenix area there.
