Free ice cream, Ben & Jerry’s, and Great Dogs … who could lose?

Ben & Jerry\'s East Memphis locationAnnually for the past 30 years Ben & Jerry’s has a free ice cream day. More than 1,000,000 cones are given away each year! Can you imagine that?

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.

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.
