People tend not to believe Ben & Jerry’s would give away that fabulous ice cream for free, so there are websites devoted to letting people know this is not a fraud! Check out those sites at Urban Legends and Snopes. Even Wikipedia has a section on the free ice cream day.
The East Memphis and Germantown locations of Ben & Jerry’s invited Good Dog Rescue to bring some of our adoptable dogs and puppies to this event. Our great animals received a lot of attention from parents and all the kids who were waiting their turn for ice cream.
Blue, the too cute beagle mix, found plenty of new friends to spend time with and get love from. Mr. Bojangles, the shetland sheepdog sheltie mix, gives 4 paws up to Ben & Jerry’s ice cream. Among all the people wandering around the event, there were plenty of ice cream droppings to be had.
Thanks to everyone who came out to Ben & Jerry’s free ice cream day yesterday and who paused for a few moments to give these precious dogs and puppies some much-appreciated attention.
