17th Annual Walk Run for the Animals

Hey everyone!



Today was the 17th annual Walk Run for the Animals. The event was held in a beautiful, lush park in Downtown Vancouver, Washington. The purpose was to raise money for the Southwest Humane Society http://www.southwesthumane.org/ (to which at the end of the event made around $7,000 or more!) Unforuntately, I was unable to attend, but I told my mom to go ahead without me and to have fun, so she did!


She saw tons of really sweet doggies that I would have loved to have met (so mom you owe me, were going for sure next year!)



There were tired dogs...









Long dogs...







And look, mom even saw a sweet Aire-girl! Ill admit Im a little jealous to show this picture but mom insists...





Thats her recieving the pet and attention from my mom I should be getting...





Also the countdown is on! 4 more days until I relocate to my new home in Washington with my new family. I recieved my Kong toy in the mail today so here is a picture of me with it, I love it, so thanks a bunch mom!


Puppy breath and lively licks,

Gosh, 4days until you go to your new home, how exciting! I expect your new mum and dad are getting most impatient. Hope they're catching up on some sleep too ;-)

Gaia, are you going to live in Vancouver, Washington? That's awesome! I live in Vancouver too, but in Canada.

I bet you can't wait to get to your home so you can get all the attention your human was giving to that other Aire gal! Only a few more days... You'll have to tell us all about meeting your human!

That's an awesome kong toy you got. You'll have lots of fun with that!

Gaia! I can't wait til you go home to your mom! My human had to wait for forever to get me, at least that's what she said.

She said she understands your excitedness...

When I first saw her I was so scared! I never saw so many teeth in my life! And I grew up with four legged humans! Her smile was ginormous!

Can't wait to hear about the move!

Slurp!

Also, don't forget, National Stuffie Appreciation Day is May 8th!
