DECEMBER PET WINNER
CHICKPEA THE RESCUE POODLE MIX IS WELCOME RELIEF TO ICU NURSE ON COVID FLOOR!
* ChickPea was rescued and now IS a rescue for one man and his family
DETROIT, MI – It’s funny how the name “Rescue Dog” can have more than one meaning, especially for Jim Dickenson, a COVID floor ICU nurse. Jim’s hours and work, while rewarding, is long and many times tiresome. When he comes home from work, ChickPea, a rescue Poodle mix, is always there to provide welcome relief for Jim. This photo was taken and submitted by his loving wife, Rachel, and has been chosen as he December 2020 Pet Of The Month contest winner. For sending her photo, the Dickenson’s will receive a freshly made sampler box filled with a variety of delicious Better Made Snack Food products.
Pet contest photos of all kinds may be submitted on line through the contest page at the Better Made website, www.bettermade.com, e-mailed to email@example.com, or mailed to Better Made Pet Photo Contest, 10148 Gratiot Avenue, Detroit, MI 48213. Remember, Better Made encourages people to send in their most outrageous and/or cutest pet photo they can of their favorite pet, be it a dog, cat, goat, rabbit, bird, orangutan, frilled lizard, etc., and the funnier or cuter the better!
“Chickpea started out as a foster dog last February with a rescue group with which I work,” says Rachel. “She became very attached to my husband who’s an ICU nurse and helps him decompress when he returns home after working all day on a Covid floor. Long story short, when it became time to adopt her out, we just couldn’t let it happen. She’s officially become my husbands “Covid” dog and has brought so much joy to his and our lives during this difficult year. We just love her.
