Pikelet the Pup Book Tour!
November 17, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pmFree
Making people smile, laugh and shed tears of happiness since 2013, Pikelet is a 4-year-old red English Staffy, a rescue dog who currently has the largest social media following of any other singular dog in Australia (both on Facebook and Instagram). Famous dogs on social media are nothing new. But the catch is that all of the elite famous dogs on social media are based overseas (up until now).
Calley and Brad Gibson use Pikelet’s large platform of followers to advocate not just animal welfare but anything that fits into their ethos of acceptance and positivity. Pikelet has been vocal and visually supportive of the Marriage Equality campaign, has always supported the LGBTQ community, he and his canine siblings wore pink pussy hats in support of the Woman’s March as well as supporting a plethora of other causes and charities like Canteen, Beyond Blue and others. They have raised over $150,000 in four years for various animal charities; this year alone they have already donated a little over $42,000 between 3 animal charities.
What makes Life of Pikelet so successful is a mixture of Pikelet’s “voice”, his adorable-ness, Calley’s professional background as a commercial photographer and ex-ad agency Art Buyer (so lots of cute photos), the never-ending stream of foster puppies that come through the doors and the unique additions of non-conventional foster animals such as piglets, baby goats and ducklings.
In May this year Pikelet’s memoirs The Extraordinary Life of Pikelet was published by Penguin Random House and Pikelet is hitting the road for his first ever book tour!
Pikelet has been booked to ‘pawtograph’ in Perth, Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide, Brisbane & Canberra.
