What a fabulous day … and in a nice location with great parking! The event was well attended by the community. Emmy managed to steal the show and Bubba was a hit with the crowds. You might recall that Bubba was found abandoned, tied to a fence in Kansas. Emmy, also from Kansas, was basically abandoned by her owner — left to fend on her own, she was starving to death when she arrived in rescue.
I got to see Magoo’s adoptive mom as well as Linda and Jackson (another of our foster dogs). We made some contacts with other groups and was invited to set up as a vendor at two other events … our local feedstore will be setting up an adoption event and was made aware of the 2 Million Dogs program which partners up canine and human cancer research, which will be hosting an event on November 7th as well.
Please keep Emmy in your thoughts for this week … she’s going in for her spay on Monday, September 20th. In the past five weeks, she’s: gained weight, blossomed into a great little dog and is growing new coat. Red-gold coat, to be exact!
Many thanks to our Apso friends — old and new — who came out and visited with us … we had a great time!
