    Default Tinker the Mini Ringing the Holiday Bell for the Salvation Army

    And raising more than 10 times the amount of the regular bell ringers! Don't miss the last part of the video to see what else Tinker does while he's on the job.

    Okay, now that is one bell ringer I wouldn't be able to pass by without donating. Adorable (and a brilliant idea!).

    I can say from personal experience over the years that when I bring my dog with me to help ring the bell, there are many, many more people who stop to make a donation.

    Maybe this will be a new thing with SA to bring in more donations. Start having animal helpers with the people!
    The one good thing about repeating your mistakes is that you know when to cringe.

    I think it depends a lot on where the kettle is set up. There are probably plenty of places that would frown on animals from a liability standpoint. Silly, but a sign of the times. I always keep that in mind when I sign up for a location to volunteer.

    Just saw this on FB. Then thought I wish I could sign up w/ my Irish Wolfhound!

    My favorite thing about Tinker is his glittered hooves.
