Tonight I got to go to my rescue group's Annual Holiday and Alumni Party! I couldn't wait, especially during the really long car ride...so I made sure that Domeek listened to me the entire journey as I barked about all my thoughts! Hehehe! She might have to told me to be quiet (like 20 billion times) but I had so much to say, so I couldn't! ;-)
Unfortunately doggie parties are early events and we had to come at the tail end of it...so that meant that there weren't as many pups and people as there had been hours earlier! Pft! Thanks Domeek!
It might have taken like 30 minutes for me to walk half a block too, since my rescue group is on the same road as the SPCA, ACC, and another rescue group, which means that there are thousands of dogs who walk and mark along the same journey! I couldn't help myself!!
The group had decorated the shelter so nicely for the holidays...it was beautiful!!!
Look at all the sparkly lights!! :-D That pup you can see in the middle of the picture is Bunny, she's an adorable, one-eyed, Pekingese who was also rescued a couple of years ago!
We brought delicious and beautiful puppy cookies with us, but since the party was winding down, all of my shelter pups will get to nibble on them to go to bed! :-D
They also had a huge Christmas tree that was covered in puppy themed ornaments; I tried to water it, but Domeek caught me before it was "too late"! ;-) Hehe!
Domeek took a billion photos, but my friends and I weren't very cooperative, so pretty much 99% of the photos were too blurry to even determine who was in them. Ooops, my bad!? ;-)
I also got to meet a three-legged, awesome Husky dog named Xander!! I liked him a whole lot!! :-D You know my husky love! A fellow alumni mix, Pono, and then this super adorable puppy who I couldn't play with, cause he was too little and didn't have all his shots!
Yes, he is even cuter in person!!
My group was trying to reach $25,000 in donations by the end of the year, so that they can start a fresh with Vet debt for the new year, and I am happy to report that they are half way there at the end of the Holiday Party!
They also found homes for two more pups during the party too...woo hoo!!!
All in all it was a great and exhausting night, especially after visiting Petco and getting a new bully twirly stick!! :-D
Here's to a wonderful and prosperous 2013 Northern California Family Dog Rescue!! Thank you for everything that you do and all of the animals in the Bay Area that you help!!
Have a great day everyone!! :-D
