Adorable Golf Ball Retrieving Dog Raises Money For Charity
The Bernese mountain dog presented the gift in the cutest way imaginable
A Minnesota dog named Davos scours a local golf course on the hunt for wayward golf balls, which he brings to his human, Al Cooper. The pup’s passion has been put to use raising money for a cause that’s near and dear to the dog’s heart. While watching TV with Davos, Al noticed that whenever a Humane Society ad would come on the television, “He would just cry his little heart out when he’d see those commercials.”
“It gave me the idea that that's probably where some of the proceeds from the sale of the golf balls should go is to the Humane Society to help those dogs that were so neglected,” he said.
The balls are priced at 25 cents each. Davos’ work quickly netted the charity $100, and Al wanted to ensure that Davos was the one who presented the funds to the charity. Al attached a $100 bill to Davos’ paw and told the dog, “Show her the money, puppy.” The dog then lifted his paw to present the gift to Deanna Kramer, senior philanthropy advisor for the Humane Society.
"That was probably the cutest donation presentation I've ever had the pleasure of being part of," said Kramer, speaking to KARE 11-TV.
