Get a jersey for your doggy in support of the Bowsie Foundation
Have a pup? Get ’em a jersey! Shortstraw and Limited Edish are proud to once again partner up to raise money for The Bowsie Foundation, Shortstraw’s foundation in support of animal charities, by making dog jerseys. All the profits of this jersey will be donated to the foundation.
Now that this jersey has become an annual event, the campaign deserves a nice name! The guys decided to name it: ‘The Doggo Jersey‘.
The Bowsie Foundation
For those who might have missed it, The Bowsie Foundation is an initiative set up by Shortstraw as a means to support animal charities in South Africa. Their love for dogs inspired the regular use of dog iconography throughout the band’s career. With the band practising in Alastair’s house for many years, they all became close with his dogs Bowser and Killah, the band mascots, the ones who had to tolerate them the most! It came with great sadness to find out that Bowser had unfortunately passed away while Shortstraw was on tour in Europe in 2016. This incredible being deserved to be honoured in any way possible, and thus she also got her own song as part of the Those Meddling Kids collection of songs. ‘Bowsie’ was released on all digital platforms in January 2018 along with the formation of the foundation.
