The 16th Annual March for the Animals - Join us or Donate!

This weekend we'll be returning to March for the Animals on Sunday, April 17, 2011 at Druid Hill Park, Baltimore, Md. 
  It will be a fun-packed day of demonstrations, contests, entertainment and a 1.5-mile walk around Druid Hill Reservoir to benefit the Maryland SPCA. Most important, it raises money for homeless animals.
  The last time we went thunderstorms moved in and we wound up running to the car, but this time the weather is supposed to be clearing, sunny and in the 60s. Perfect for a dog walk!  (Another year it was in the 90s in April during this event).
  We'll be bringing our Weimaraner, Dolly, and Dachshund, Franklin -and our foster Dachshund, Sprite. Of course, being 14 years old, Sprite will likely not make it all the way around the reservoir so Rob is borrowing a little red wagon from a co-worker to cart Sprite around. Most likely, we'll harness the wagon to Dolly, who sometimes pulls like a horse!

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.
