Well, the dog walk went very well, and the weather was perfect. Perhaps one hundred people attended the fundraiser with a very wide variety of dogs in tow. The walk itself took approximately a mile through a wooded path, mostly by the banks of Shepherd Lake. Some of the dogs, particularly the retrievers, took a dip in the lake. My dog, Fidelma, a Chihuahua, didn't want to get in. She's a lapdog, and not a swimmer. Some of our dogs from the shelter also made it to the dogwalk. In fact, Bailey stood a good chance at being adopted today. A woman and her daughter looked her over, and even took her for a walk. Bailey has been at the shelter for a while, and it would be great to see her go home. A very young girl, whose name I can't recall, donated to the shelter the money she received at her birthday party, all $300! Another youngster, a boy, raised $400 for the shelter and he received special mention as well. Here are some photos from today:
