SPCA Dog Walk/Fun Lunch!

Sunday was another warm day, so we started early to get in a fund-raising dog walk. Rob's mom decided to forego it because of the heat, so we took Dolly and Franklin and drove to the local county SPCA fund-raising dog walk in Annapolis. We walked 3.5 miles and were pretty warm by the end of it! We saw hundreds of dogs, including about 15 Dachshunds and 2 Weimaraners, one of which was a rare "blue Weimaraner" (actually more like dark blue). Here are some photos from the dog event. Because the Weimaraner breed of dog comes from Pointers I took a photo of a Pointer. There were also several big dogs, some of which were as large as ponies!

After the dog walk, we cleaned up, picked Rob's mom up and met our friend Jill, her daughter Kelli and her brother's boyfriend Allen at Friendly's for a really fun lunch. We all posed for some pictures outside in the heat. Kelli is such an awesome girl, and Rob's Godchild. She just one a full scholarship and we're so proud and excited for her!! Here's a photo of Tom and I cutting up with Kelli.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
