"Mom, I want to send my allowance to the raffle."
"The basenji raffle? Devon, I don't think that's a good idea."
"But, homeless basenjis."
"yes, but if you won the basenji quilt, it would not look good since I made it. It needs to go live with someone else."
"well, you better remind them. Those homeless basenjis aren't finding homes on their own."
"You're right, Devon, they are not. Okay, so tickets are --"
"And be sure to remind them that they don't even have to HAVE a basenji to win!
Okay, here's the info on the raffle for the basenji quilt:
Tickets are $5 each or 5 for $20. Make checks to Hi Country Basenji Club.
