Here’s a letter prairie dog got this evening:
Just read your feature “Presents for Everyone” and noticed that not one of the 29 gifts could be bought from any of the small local businesses that advertise in your mag. In fact you recommended on line shopping about 14 times!
Tell me again why small, local businesses should advertise in the prairie dog?

Okay loyal prairie dog/Dog Blog readers, take my word for it — there are many, many problems with what this person has written. Can you spot some of them? Leave your answers in the comments below. Best comment (as chosen by me) left by Wednesday
noon 3:00 will win some kind of gift-wrapped prize (I have no idea what, but it won’t be lame).
I hope “where’s my prize for commenting?” Jeff is paying attention…
A MESSAGE TO OUR READERS The coronavirus pandemic is a moment of reckoning for our community. We’re all hurting. It’s no different at Prairie Dog, where COVID-19 has wiped out advertisements for events, businesses and restaurants as Regina and Saskatchewan hunker down in quarantine. As an ad-supported newspaper already struggling in a destabilized media landscape, this is devastating. We’re hoping you, our loyal readers, can help fill in the gap so Prairie Dog can not only continue to exist but even expand our coverage — both in print and online. Please consider donating, either one-time or, even better, on a monthly basis.
We believe Prairie Dog's unique voice is needed, now more than ever. For 27 years, this newspaper has been a critical part of Regina’s social, cultural and democratic infrastructure. Don’t let us fade away. There’s only one Prairie Dog. If it’s destroyed, it’s never coming back.
