We were asked by Petplan to be part of one of the most enjoyable campaigns ever! We love animals and we did have 2 gorgeous Persian cats but they are no longer with us so we don’t currently have a pet at home. The girls are desperate to get one, especially Bella who keeps asking for a dog. We are not ready to have a pet at home again for now so the only thing the girls can have for now is a Dream Pet!
MY DREAM PET
Petplan wanted Bella to draw her dream pet. They didn’t specify what type of pet, they only wanted children to put their artistic skills to the test. It could be anything, weird or fantastic. The only limit was their imagination! The idea was to convert this dream pet drawing into an amazing soft toy for Bella to keep and treasure. How amazing is that?
When I told Bella about this campaign she was super excited! She wanted to draw her dream pet straight away. She thought a lot about what to do before coming up with the following drawing:
It was a lovely and colorful parrot. Bella drew this parrot with so much attention to detail. It was beautiful. I was so proud of her!
She did a fantastic job. I was so impressed. The best part was all the colours that she included. She really wanted it to be very bright and cheerful. A pet that she would love to cuddle all the time. We then sent the drawing to Petplan to transform this lovely drawing into Bella’s own cuddly soft toy.
Before we tell you about the moment Bella received her soft toy, I thought I should introduce you to Petplan and all the wonderful things they are doing at the moment.
Since Petplan’s inception in 1976, their priority has been to keep the nation’s pets healthy and their owners happy. By offering the very best pet insurance policies and great customer service, they have helped millions of owners get their beloved pets back on their feet following illness and injury.
From the start, Petplan understood that pet owners have specific needs when it comes to finding the right insurance policy, and became one of only a few pet insurance providers to offer genuine ‘lifetime’ policies. In addition to their market leading Covered for Life policies, they also have a 12-month policy that is designed to suit all needs.
Did you know that Petplan work with more animal rehoming charities than any other pet insurance provider and that they are committed to supporting charities and the vital work they do in any way they can? They work with more than 1,200 charities throughout the UK and in 1994, they formed the Petplan Charitable Trust which has so far raised more than £7 million towards a better, healthier world for animals. How fantastic is that?
BELLA MEETS RAINBOW STAR
Bella was so excited about receiving a soft toy made from her drawing. Everyday she asked if it had arrived. She was so curious to see how it would turn out. After a couple weeks, the most day arrived and her dream pet was here! Hurrah!
It came in a lovely silk bag which was perfect to protect it. She opened the bag and saw Rainbow Star! This was actually the name she decided to call it after she saw it. I asked her why and she said it reminds her of a rainbow because of all the beautiful colours it has.
She was so happy when she finally saw it. She thought it was perfect and looked some much like her drawing! Petplan did a fantastic job. They managed to capture every single detail and they added all the different colours. It was amazing. The best present ever for Bella.
Since she received her parrot it has been her favourite and most treasured soft toy. She loves cuddling it and giving her (because Rainbow Star is a girl) lots of kisses!
THANK YOU so much Petplan for letting us be part of this wonderful campaign and letting my daughter’s dream pet turn into a reality!
