Bark in the Park

The weather forecast for Sunday, October 14 looks great so far, so I think we are on track to hit Bark in the Park for Peoria's Humane Society at the Peoria Riverfront.
Our dog has $270 worth of professionally polished pearly whites to show off. Who knows, it may have been a rip off, but the vet recommended it, she doesn't have dog breath anymore, and her teeth are very white. She's a pretty girl, yes she is!
The event will start at 11 a.m. this year, and dog lovers and dogs are welcome to join in the fun. Activities include a walk ($25 registration per dog), paw painting, obedience demos, photos, raffles, food vendors, a mutt show and more.
This year, you can raise pledges and receive prices for each fundraising level attained, like collars, leashes, shirts and even iPods. Several people have posted pledge pages on the Humane Society's web site.

This is a FABULOUS and FUN event and such a worthwhile cause. Anyone who loves their pet or animals in general should participate in this. All 3 of our dogs have been from dog pounds and they are just the best dogs... but it costs a lot of money to humanely treat our pet overpopulation. Hope we see a HUGE crowd there!

It IS a great event.
I have said several times that our dog has such a great life. And I wouldn't be surprised if she was the only one from her litter still around. She lucked out when she picked us.
