Dog Expo Adventures

A couple of weekends ago I (Rob) went to the Baltimore Dog Expo with our friend Susan, and I brought our Weimaraner, Dolly. I figured our Dachshunds were too small and would get stepped on- Dolly held her own and stayed very close to me the entire 3 hours. There were hundreds of vendors there, and I bought a new harness for Dolly and treats for all our kids. One of our favorite rescues (that we work with and support) was there: COAST-TO-COAST DACHSHUND RESCUE ( http://www.c2cdr.org/)!   There was so much to see, and the crowd was huge!  I also found a great dog toy box, made by a Pennsylvania store - and our dogs quickly learned how to use it.
- There were also agility trials, and Susan and I watched several of them.The dogs that do them are amazing. Susan and her hubby Cary have 3 Shelties, and two of them are great at agility (the other one's specialty is eating- just like our dachshunds.).

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.
