Paws On Parade



Yea! We had a glorious day for our Paws On Parade fund raiser. The sun was shining, some different from the pouring rain of two weeks ago when we were supposed to have it. We had the largest turnout ever with every breed of dog you can imagine, some dressed up, some weighing about two pounds, big dogs, little dogs, you name it!


This is Dr. Hanks, he is one of our local vets. He contacted all of his clients via e-mail and put together a team and raised $7,000.00!



We had little dogs.

We had big dogs.


There were prissy dogs,

We had drooly dogs.


We had old dogs.



We had young dogs. Newman is 4 months old here with my little niece.


We had bug eyed dogs.

We had matching dogs.


We had blue eyed dogs.

We had howling dogs.


We had dogs that had just gotten out of jail!



AND WE RAISED $37,000.00!!!!!!!!!

Was that little dog a Toy Manchester? We had one of those when we were kids and called it "Penny."

Was Pea's party a hoot or what? Way too funny. Such creative people!

Hope your mom is having a good week. Thinking about and praying for her. Hugs.
