There are a lot of unusual calendars out there and as we are staring a brand new year in the face it is time to start making your choice for the best wall calendar for you. If you want to consider something really unusual, unique, and that features dogs, then, boy, do I have a calendar for you! For 2020 I recommend the Dad Bod and Rescue Dog Calendar.
This particular calendar is the brainchild of Lucky Bulldog Rescue in Council Bluffs, Iowa, as a fund raising effort for their non-profit organization. The calendar shows off a few dad bods, but the real focus of the calendar is the dogs.
It features English bulldogs, French bulldogs, Boston terriers, and Pugs. Volunteers provide the dad bods for the photos. And those are done as tastefully as possible.
Even though this is a 12 month calendar, the photos, taken by photographer Lyndsey Wright, who is also a volunteer for the rescue, are so adorable and funny that some months have more than one photo assigned to it.
The proceeds will help fund the non-profit organization that is dedicated to saving snort-snout dogs. They are rescuing as many of them as they can from commercial breeders.
The dogs are fostered in homes so that they can learn to trust humans who don't just see dollar signs when they look at them. They are given regular medical care and and special needs are cared for meticulously. Naturally the ultimate goal is to find them a good forever home where they can just be dogs.
The rescue has an agreement in place with several commercial breeders to take dogs with special needs, as well as those being "retired." Retirement is for those dogs that are no longer fit for the breeding programs.
The photos have been a huge success on the internet and have been going viral. Some people have asked why all dad bods and no mom bods. Wright explained that the calendar is meant to be humorous and dad bods help with that. Also, the main focus of the photos is the dogs, and moms might take away from that. Mom Bods and Rescue Dogs is not a subject that is likely to be so well received. by the public
