Fun Dog Event with Friends!

On Saturday, we took Dolly and Franklin to a dog event and met our friends Susan and her dog Bentley, Ed (no dog ... yet!) and Amy with her dog Emma. The event was called  the "2010 Parade of Paws Pet Walk" (You can get some deals on dog-related merchandise here: http://www.magdrl.org/shoppingpage5.htm). The Dachshund rescue that we work with was there, which is how we heard about it. Bentley, Dolly and Franklin got to march in a "Parade of Breeds." Then, Susan and Bentley participated in a dog tricks event. It was fun!

Policeman from the Canine Unit of the county doing a demonstration. He's cute, and Susan kept asking him questions. Flirt! :)

 It was a fundraising event for various rescues including the Great Dane Rescue, Dachshund Rescue, Aussie Rescue and Bassett Hound Rescue. There were a lot of great vendors there, and we even had Dolly and Franklin's picture drawn by a local artist.  Check him out at http://www.pretzeldogdesign.com/. His name is Chris, and he's REALLY TALENTED!

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.
