Our Bark For Life went really well yesterday! We didn’t have as big of a turn out as I had hoped, but everyone who was there had a great time and the day was perfect for being outside with your pet.
Huckleberry and her mom, Jane, had been at the beach with some friends and stopped by the event on their way home. She commandeered her friend Brittany and furbaby Tucker to come with her. They all had a really good time and Brittany posted, “Tucker never knew fundraisers could be so fun!”
We had all types and sizes of dogs, ranging from a Great Dane to a tiny Yorkie. Everyone had fun with the Strut Your Mutt parade, and the dogs seemed to love showing off their best tricks, giving vocal performances, smiling, wagging their tails, and participating in a peanut butter eating contest, among other things.
The regional news was there and ran a short story at 11 o’clock.
Tippy got second place in Happiest Dog and Best Trick. She also got first place in fundraising, so her picture will be the largest on the poster calendar we are putting together. Here she is with all of her prizes.
I had intended to include in this post how the reunion with Tippy and Huckleberry went. However, my internet was acting up today and it literally took me all afternoon and evening to get these pictures up and the post written to this point. I will do my very best to post about the reunion tomorrow. Sorry to all of my followers who were looking forward to hearing about it today.
